    Sometimes it's best to say nothing, I don't want the thread closing because of silly arguments. I've put in a lot of work into it, even if somebody else hasn't.

    It's a totally typical jazz/pop chord progression, just a fancy I-ii-V7...but the raising of the tonic from D to D# makes a diminished chord that leads beautifully to the iim7.

    It has a lot ot offer. But it works somewhat on it's own, the editing, latency, and other issues made me prefer Cubase.

    BUT

    If you are not sure of which DAWS you want to get into, or are not invested in another DAWS, both Logic and REAPER offer the some of the best bang for the buck of the whole group in terms of.

    If you plan to do score work, Logic has a much better score editor than REAPER. That could change; and I do not mean the MIDI piano roll editor, but a real staff notation thing that ProTools and Sibelius never got together even when owned by the same company.

    Yes it is a walk-up. But the "7 chord + dim7 a half step up trick" to get a V7b9 chord works here, that's why it's so cool...it's both a walk-up AND a secondary dominant.

    D#dim7 - D# F# A C...also spelled as C dim7 - C Eb Gb Bbb

    B7 - B D# F# A

    See?

    I should have posted this...

    B7b9 - B D# F# A C

    Yeah. How weird was that? When one company buys another, it's often to 'synergise' the intellectual property and R&D expertise. I can remember being sent a review copy of a Sibelius program years ago and thinking: "As a score-writing, or song learning, system this is great. It doesn't really work as a DAW though." I could see the rationale of keeping the two things separate, but only if there were no developers integrating the two. But there are, so it just takes Pro Tools off the shopping list for quite a few of us.

    Sorry. This is well off-topic. :oops:

    My quick and dirty take, recorded rhythm part couple of times until I was able to do it in one take, solo - one take with some rudimental melody which hits the right notes, I hope. A bit of clams, as usually, are free of charge

    Reapers score editing facilities are dire, no other word for it, I loved Sibelius.

    I get it.

    Imagine, though, that Sibelius and Protools, when both owned by AVID, would have been a totally integrated thing, instead of that horribly pedestrian score editor on say, ProTools10 (otherwise a fine DAWS on Mac OS10.8.5), where the power of Sibelius was part of the DAWS...or in reverse, the supposed recording program in Sibelius actually could do anything.

    So far I have not found the "perfect" DAWS for me. Even Cubase has not had updates that help me.

    I found this to be one of your more accessible recordings. That was wonderful!!

    I seem to recall your wheelhouse being more hard rock, you wouldn't know that here. Great jazzy sound and feel as far as I'm concerned :).

    It's about making music, or at least making music that others can hear, so it's all good in my book. :)

    the difference is that you can actually play.

    Thanks, but I would say the same about you - I've heard you play over the years!
