Here's another prog head checking in.
Was in PureFloyd/Welsh Floyd for 8 years. Used Cantabile for running the backing tracks, triggering the DMX lightshow (using DXMIS and its VST plugin) and triggering the video laptop to start in sync. In Pure Floyd I ran NI B4II in Cantabile on top, but in Welsh Floyd I was using the Kronos CX-3 engine.
Have left Welsh Floyd to focus on my own stuff, but it is the time of year when I would sooner be sitting outside, so I am accumulating stuff and ideas ready for the autumn and the nights drawing in!
Will be redoing my live rig to make more use of Cantabile and my VSTis. The intent is to make Cantible the heart of the rig, rather than being the end of the chain, where it currently sits in my setup. I want a flexible setup where I can mix and match what I take out.
You can check out my music demos at www.echoes-music.co.uk and www.carregddu.co.uk let me know what you think.
Whilst I do not have the playing chops of some of the excellent folk on this forum (I came to music quite late in life), I think I do OK on structure and melody. This is all hardware synths or VSTis all recorded in Cubase, but I am looking forward to making more use of VSTis live in my next phase.
Will check out your stuff later when I am not sitting in a VERY quiet restaurant (away on business and in a restaurant full of a coach party of German mutes! - first time for everything....).
