Thanks. I found his old email, and I've send him a PM as well. Fingers crossed, I suppose. I do owe a huge apology, although I blame the internet, seems messages never went through. I also blame myself sorta, I should have chased it up, but being young at the time I suppose my confidence wasn't exactly what it is now.
Okay, this is a super, super, super long shot. I produced a track way way back, about six years ago now, and I remember asking on the old Frost* forum for a vocalist, and I received this vocal demo here: Link!

I can't remember why, but I fell out of contact, and the thing never got finished. I'm 99% certain I found the vocalist here, and this is just a note to see if said person still resides here. Simply because I'd like to work with you at some point, whoever you are. I don't think I can open my old PM inbox (I can't even get to the old forum anymore) so I do hope this doesn't come across as rude or anything. I honestly have no idea what happened.

I'll keep an eye on ze topic. I'm not specifically asking to work on this track, although it'll probably be something I return to in a couple years and produce properly when I'm not buried under a pile of more pressing work...

Thank you for your time!  :)

EDIT: Someone used the power of the internet and found it!

And it's finished! I have never heard this before! This is literally .... Amazing. Now, is DaveM here still? :D

I feel really bad though.. seems I never returned his emails, and I would have. I... honestly have no diea what happened. Much apologies will be given..

Anything is possible with a free synth. I know Crystal has a lot of twinkly, glassy sounding effects, but the stuff from TAL Audio, like the U No 62 and NoiZemaker synths would be capable, as long as you know how to program your own patches.

If you think EIMA is car unfriendly, I would avoid Elbow's Seldom Seen Kid... My god that first track nearly have me a heart attack when I first had it on :(

Quote from: "Rook"Another path I have heard (I have not tried it myself) is to sign up for a class at your local community college (or whatever that kind of institution is called where you are. You can do "Intoroduction to guitar" or "Biscuit Appreciation" or whatever you want, but as long as you get a student card you can qualify for student or academic prices on a lot of software. My Comp Sci degree certainly qualified for Cubase (and also Windows XP and office).

As a music degree graduate... going back into education is a um... expensive way of getting a discount! Postgrad etc.  :P

Quote from: "EvilDragon"Grab it at the next sale.

Another way of getting it cheaper is trying to dig out Kontakt 1 on eBay (can be had real cheap), and then you crossgrade to the latest version.

I've...never considered that.

That is genius. I think I want to buy all my software this way... as well as acquire some of NI's legacy stuff (pro53, FM7 etc)

And I just use the things, because I'm just a producer. I can't even afford Kontakt right now :'(

Quote from: "EvilDragon"Blake is a pal of mine. A very cool and a humble dude.  ;)

And rather talented, and a part of the Spitfire crew if I'm not mistaken?

I've got a whole bunch of alternative freebie orchestra bits and pieces. I also have East West CCC, as well as the new Albion II Loegria library (Which is wonderful), but you can never have enough of these samples. I've run into situations where the freebie one has just the right amount of vibrato, or it's been recorded with a specific mic that let's it sit in my mix without much EQing at all.

So even if you are as sample rich as, say, Blake Robinson, it's still worthwhile grabbing these things while you can, you never know when you might need that one anvil hit in there!
Nice to see you, Pedro, and nice to see ol Sackboy reigns supreme. The thing with the game went through, but it seems to be a US only release on the App Store. I also finally got credit for Boost 2, so that's a plus.

And yeah I've been mostly working on the cinematic side, only just getting back into making 'songs', it's not the smoothest transition I must say!

Hey there, I'm Jamie. I'm not new to here, you all know me previous as Serfox. However times are a changin, going with a more sensible name on these internets, and I figure a good way to say hello is to show you what I've been doing in the past few months.

Aside from all this, I'm about to start work on scoring an independent feature length film, as well as a lot of writing, attempting to get some articles on music production out there, as well as other articles, perhaps relating to the visually impaired side of being a working(ish) musician.

Sticking this page on my go-to thing on Chrome so I should be around a fair bit. Now, where's the custard creams?
