    Talking 2112 The Manic Moderator!

    What do you get when you take a moderator in his manic stage; add caffeine, tons of smokes, high blood pressure, and new toys to play with?
    Muddy Rubbish!
    This is just a doodle I’ve messed with in the last couple of days. Since, I can’t wait for a new Rush CD, I do what I always do and start making my own in my spare time. That’s how it started out anyway. Then it deteriorates into I don’t know what. There are so many tracks that I am lost. And I have pushed both my computers to the max.
    If you are brave, listen before I wake up tomorrow and toss it. I have some crazy ideas how to finish it if I decide to. Comments and insults are welcome (You can cut me a little slack because I’m a drummer).
    Also note that I am a big Alex Lifeson fan so watch your ears/monitors on the high end.


    Samples used (so far)
    Lyrical Distortion (with 2112’s multis – man! That guy is a genius!)
    QL ’56 Strat (both through one of my new toys - Guitar Rig)
    Scarbee J’slap n Fingered (also through GR)
    GPO
    Drum Kit from Hell
    EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Platinum (just Full mics)
    EW Symphonic Choirs – boys and full
    Some stock Dr008 synth percussion that I butchered
    StormDrum


    Later I plan to add Bela D’s Giovani


    Soft Synths:
    WusikStation – nice piece!
    Ravity 16
    Zeta3+ (or whatever it’s called)

    And a whole bunch of other stuff that I can’t remember at the moment.

    In case you are wondering what the choir is singing, it’s Latin. Loosely translated, it means “Go soak your head in the aqueduct” – o.k. just kidding…it’s high latency gibberish (for now).
    My apologies to the developers for perverting their libraries.

    I’m going to wake up tomorrow and say “OH GOD! I can’t believe I posted that!”



    “Sword of Doves”

    Brain, I can't believe you would post something this bad! Just kidding!

    Not really the style I listen to often, but I do like the gibberish!

    Hey Brian, how's things? Haven't seen you around in ages.

    This sounds excellent! You have a very personal style of combining hard stuff with nice melodies and chord changes. Very enjoyable and it stands as a piece very well. I especially liked the outro part.

    I also like the sound you got from the guitar and drums ; warm phat and spacious.

    Any chance of hearing master Brian singing in the future? hehe, that would be cool

    Cheers

    Love it! Very filmic (if that's the word I'm looking for). So please finish it, Brian.

    Thanks for letting us listen.

    Kind regards.

    Of course, you knew I would like it. I especially like the modulation starting around 1:15.

    I can’t believe I posted this!

    Hey thanks guys! I’m glad you like! I guess I’ll keep it and finish it – if nothing else, just for the obnoxiousness value.

    Theo, good to see you too! I’ve been running around the country. Hopefully I can settle down for a bit.

    Thanks again!

    P.S. I might torture you guys with a song that I sing on. I'll post it here if at all...hehe
