    A couple of my music box comps

    Music Box Lovers,

    Here are two of my "music box" comps that I posted on this forum a long time ago:


    and

    "CandyLand"

    Regards,

    I really enjoyed these. They also brought back a very early childhood memory about a music box that contained perfumes. I can remember the scents of the perfumes.

    Thanks, Mr. Phil. I'm glad that you liked them.

    I absolutely will not tell anyone that you played with perfumed music boxes when you were a kid. Kidding...just kidding!

    Larry,
    I really enjoyed them! I don't know what it is about music boxes, they always give an aura of mystery to me. You pulled that off perfectly.

    Out of curiosity, how did you go about creating the song? While it was playing I could imagine you being in a key editor of Cubase or other like program literally using the blocks on the editor as tines for the music box. You could watch the notes scroll by as they would on the cylinder of the music box. Was it anything like that?

    No, I simply used an extended-range synthesized music box in my Sonar 5 sequencer.

    I produced the "special effects" (broken music box) with various methods, including the pitch wheel.

    Thanks for listening.
