Noise Pollution. Even All Night:
First let me say that I have nothing against people going about their lawful business, but for the good of people’s health and family life there should be an 8.00pm – 5.00am curfew on all the earth. That, however is not what this article is about.
With either one of the following, professional recordings of any type can be made. It just depends on you. Cubase (I have their software at home, but no computer. Was for windows 97-98) Cakewalk (I have one of theirs as well I think. More recent)
The cost of excluding unwanted noise is far beyond the average person’s budget. Really, if you use a professional studio, and have prepared all the tracks, you are paying for the silence. If they can enhance the individual tracks then you are getting a better deal, and they probably can. Although those software packets can do most of it now. It is certainly true they would suffice for my own needs if I could be rid of the birds singing, motor bikes roaring, lorries, vans, planes Etc., rumbling.
My health is not good enough now. Anyway.
If you just want to show off performing on stage then all you really need is a quality karaoke machine that can mute the lead track, which you replace with singing. Download the midi backing tracks you need from the net. (Free Original* Midi Tracks as used by the original performers)
Not so free one’s. Here. Mp3 is probably more suitable, because they are a finished track with all the panning Etc done. For cheap skates with absolutely no conscience, only though. You can save your original music as .mp3 of course.
With the above software you can do that, and a lot more. Change the lead instrument on classical music .midi’s to a solo guitar, for example, and delete the other tracks. Or change the lead instrument on Abba’s or Simon and Garfunkel’s songs to a woodwind instrument. You could probably do that with karaoke software.
Do those simple things and you could go busking on the High Street. I.e. Elgin. Fools will put money in your hat.
Note * I’ve not listened to any of these, but the likes of Eric Clapton use these. Remember – music is never live.
All the Beatles, Rolling Stones Etc. music was made and performed that way. The power and influence the devil has through his music is beyond indecency.
