Had a chance the other day to read through some RC-50 workshops that I downloaded from the BOSS site shortly after I bought the loop station. Since I have no need to pull the GR-30 out of the studio until the 30th I’ll be setting the two of them up today and starting to work with the basics of getting a drumbeat down on the looper from the guitar synth.
Once I have a good feel for that I’ll begin working on overdubs for the song.
Once I’m moving in the right direction with all of that I’ll be getting my hands on a webcam and starting to do the actual video.
So today on my regular blog I posted my plans for entering the previously mentioned Roland Guitar Synthesizer Challenge.
I’ve set up a new YouTube SoaringSpider channel in preparation for posting the first of (possibly several) non-entry videos prior to (hopefully) posting an entry.
And I suppose I may post other videos not related to the challenge. After all, it’s my channel and I’ll post if I want to.
So anyhow, this is my first progress post. I haven’t worked on the video yet but have all the pieces in place to let the world know what I’m doing.
You’re right (whoever you are)! I haven’t done a lot with this blog since I started it. But let’s jump right in.
Roland recently announced a contest that you enter by (among other details) posting a video on YouTube showing yourself playing an original song and utilizing a Roland guitar synth.
My plan for the moment is to work on a new song, using the Roland GR-30 Guitar SYnthesizer and the BOSS RC-50 Loop Station. Depending on how that goes I may get so far as entering the contest. As always, time is the snitch.
I will post my progress here.
