I did this track called Have a Really Good Year Dec 26th 2009 .
It is something I shared again with my Facebook "friends" yesterday. Looks like it got 6 partial plays, which is way better than the response I usually get on Facebook, a platform I mostly think is a waste of time and a scam, but haven't given it up.
The vocal is pretty much me doing a Rorschach (a character in Watchmen) speaking thing, on the
media loves Shock and Horror, the trouble in the Middle East, the Financial Crisis and a few other things that were "news" in 2009, and are still the cliches Neoliberal media and politicians roll out ..
I just a link to the original track, but I also did another version. I have moved to a new computer since then and only installed the most useful VSTs, so it needed a new reverb and organ configured.
I use ValhallaVintageVerb now and that was all fine, but ezDrummer said it wasn't Authorized. It worked 2 weeks ago. But since then a Lightning storm has taken out the Ethernet on my PC and I had put in a new Ethernet card instead. That has changed my PC as far as Toontracks was concerned, but hadn't effected products by Izotope or anyone else. Ok just re-register, done it twice before, easy.
Short story version is your forced to use a new Toontracks thing called PM which is broken and will waste your time to get it working again.... and that really kills the vibe in working on something!
So Have a Really Good Year
