These are both really nice. Keith shows how good a $6 whistle can sound. I love my cheapies I have a Feadog here on my desk I wouldn't trade for a Copeland.

Ren the dulcimer sounds so nice. Judy is tempting me to look at them at the Dublin, OH festival the first weekend in August. A few more tunes like this and I may have a hard time resisting. My wife said even she could be enticed to try the dulcimer after listening to this number.

Well, after sequestering myself for a day and a half, I'm uploading my version of There Is A Fountain.

Dialup stinks. That said, while I'm waiting, I'll do something I should have done a week ago: put up the lyrics.

There is a fountain, filled with blood
Drawn from Emmanuel's veins.
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.

Lose all their guilty stains!
Lose all their guilty stains!
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.



The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day;
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.

Wash all my sins away!
Wash all my sins away!
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.



Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its power
Till all the ransomed ones of God
Be saved, to sin no more.

Be saved, to sin no more!
Be saved, to sin no more!
Till all the ransomed ones of God
Be saved to sin no more.



E'er since by faith I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die:

And shall be till I die!
And shall be till I die!
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.


When this poor lisping, stammering tongue
Lies silent in the grave,
Then in a nobler, sweeter song,
I'll sing Thy power to save.

I'll sing Thy power to save!
I'll sing Thy power to save!
Then in a nobler, sweeter song,
I'll sing Thy power to save.



I don't think I've ever been so strongly affected by one of these projects. I've been repeatedly arrested by the thought that we're scum and He's sovereign. And even though each of us has enough issues to deal with guilt throughout eternity, He has provided what we need to at any time turn to Him and quickly and effectively rid ourselves of guilt.

What keeps coming back to me with this project is these words:

Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die. :)

And here's my offering:

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... onnies.mp3



I used a Water Weasel C for everything. For software I used Finale, Audacity and ACID.

I'm not quite satisfied with the mic situation on the new laptop, but I've improved it some with a new battery in my mic. :roll:

On the bright side, with a gig and a quarter of RAM and a Pentium M processor set to maximum CPU, I pushed the envelope with 22 tracks, and it never blinked! :D

I've been waiting a whole day to try to say what, specifically, I like about this. I can't state exactly what it is -- reverent, grateful, heartfelt, etc. Really appealing and enjoyable. This is, for me, one of the top ten recordings of all that's been done on TPE. (This isn't an attempt to start comparing things, but rather a way to say how much I like this.)

Keith, thanks. I was hoping those expressions would come out.

One of my favorite quotes is from the movie "Shadowlands." "We read to know we're not alone." If I could freely misquote it, I would say, "We make music to know we're not alone." :)

I liked this so well I emailed it to a friend who is a very accomplished musician. He directs a community choir as well as a inter-denominational choir. He is a professional singer, pianist, organist, etc. I sent it to him because I believe he will love it.

:)

Wow!

Very nicely done ... I really like the harmony parts. Really sweet.

OUTSTANDING!

Nice, Shadoes! I defy anybody to listen through the middle section and keep your feet perfectly still. Can't do it! :mrgreen:

I'm liking that synthesizer very much.

The synths used on this are Vanguard and Rhino 2. both are around the 100 dollar mark. So quite reasonable. Most of this track was done in Rhino.

:shock: Really? I would have thought you paid a lot more. Are these keyboards or software?

Software. I use all SoftSynths these days. There are a ton of free ones out there too that are decent if you have a hardware controller. I use a little M-audio Axiom 25. It has 25 keys with an octave switcher button plus 8 knobs,pitch bend,modulation wheel, and 8 pads. Nice little controller for a bit over a hundred bucks.

The synths I own that you might want to check out
Rhino 2
Vanguard
Toxic III
Poizone
Adventus
Dream Station

I also have a bunch of the free ones loaded up. Computer Music magazine is a good spot for free ones because the editions that come with the magazine are usually a bit more robust than the demo versions of the same synths.

I am also looking into buying Wusikstation a synth/sampler that is also in the 100-150 range.

Don;t have to spend a lot of money to get really good sounds these days.

Nope, didn't make it! Foot didn't fail me at all! Very neat Shadoes!

thanks. It has been a long time since I messed with pure electronica like this. Forgot how much I enjoyed then and enjoy it now.

Yep, that's a hair nonstandard. ;) Cool.

Very Nice! This computer would crash before it reached 10 tracks, I bet. :P

Nice one Darvis. Is it rude if I say that it seems to me that you play three times better than you did last year. Your breath contol, timing and tight ornaments make me think you have been working hard on your playing and it shows. =D>

Why, thank you, Adrian. That is good to hear. :)

Here's a version of this song from JudyK.

She says:

I just uploaded a dulcimer version of "There is a Fountain". Did have a flute/harp mix in mind, up can't find the time to get it together.

Judy, that sounds so nice. The DAD tuning gives you some beautiful chords. You're a quick student! That's some fast progress you're making; and the new microphone really picks up the dulcimer. More clips, I beg!

I am enjoying the dulcimers. They are such fun to play! :)

I have to give blackhawk credit for my version. After listening to his great clip, I picked up the dulcimer and played my version. Hadn't tried this song on the dulcimer until then.
