    Hey all, I'm a newb here...and I'm no bassist either
    My name's Ricardo, I'm 18 (almost 19 ) yrs Old
    I'm from holland and I'm a singer/Pianist

    I'm wanting to start an Online Collaboration RockBand,
    and still searching for bandmates,

    I have the link to where it's at but wont post it at the moment... cuz I don't want this to sound like SPAM or something...

    If I'm doing something out of line here.. plz feel free to delete this post..

    The band is Called: "Long Play"

    the musical direction of the band I see is as follows:

    well let's just say up front ! QUEEN!

    I just love, the layering of the guitars, the vocal harmonies
    The Beautifull tone and simplicity of the basslines
    the complexity, yet simplicity of their songs.
    I'd like the energy Aerosmith offers, with their hard rock edge

    If you're interested... Reply in this thread, and I'll post the link to where the band is located... I've got about 4 songs uploaded at the moment, mostly ballads/midtempo songs...
    With this band I want to complete about 12 -14 songs
    So there's material to be written as well!
    so if you feel up for the task of playing bass in a fun, but serious Online Rock Band, and Writing songs as well...
    let me know!!

    I think that I might be interested in something like this, I'd know for sure after I heard some of the material.

    Catchy tunes. How do you plan on actually collaborating? As in software to be used, etc... Just curious. ;)

    Well, the "we" (the people on the collabing site)
    usually collab is everyone just records to a track, ( drummer would ask for a drumless track, bassist for bassless , and so on )

    then the seperate wave file(s) are compressed to lossles .ape files (converter + codecs found at www.dbpoweramp.com)
    and sent over (or uploaded to the collabing server) to the "producer" and then mixed into the song

    usually we start collabing by posting a WMA and never mp3 as they add milliseconds of silence to the front of track, which will get you out of sync...


    is the collabing site I'm talking about

    software to be used, well that's up to the instrumentalists

    I use sonar 3 PE
    others Use Cubase
    others protools (not many)
    others still do analogue and then convert to digital

    if you got more questions Lemme know :)

    That sounds good. I wasn't sure if you were all using the same package or not. Sounds interesting. Hmmm...
  9. I'm a "PRO" pure original guy and even though this is an emulation of Queen, I like it and it's really a very nice quality recording that I can listen to and aspire to.

    very nice job and I hope you keep posting your music.
