This is me playing the Brave Heart Theme along with some midi tracks.  I'm messing around with Apple Logic Pro X.  The non-midi tracks are me on my FM Soloist and my Dixon Tin Whistle.  Recorded using a ribbon mic.  I've been playing now for a little over a year and I thought it was overdue to put something out here of my own, since I enjoy listening to you all so much. 

There are a number of places where I miss the rhythm, some places where my intonation suffers and at bar 31 I accidentally hit an adjacent string and make a horrible honking noise.  Also note that the string ensemble is midi -- which sounds much better than I do. 

Let me know what you think.

@coolpinkone, @Schaick, @mark_1, thanks.  I appreciate it.  To me, it's pretty wretched, but I only had time to do 2 takes,since I needed to get the lawn mowed before it started raining.  I'll repost it if I can ever get it to sound better.  

My primary goal here is to learn more about Logic Pro X. I'm not entirely pleased with it and I have difficulties starting with the microphone all the way through to the mix down into mp3. It's pretty complicated software.

Wow.  That sounds so professional.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Great job Uzi. 🙂
Thanks for sharing. Look forward to the next recording and maybe having a beer with you the next time you come to Ft Lauderdale.
