1) The raincoat has popped open.

Or more worrying:

2) There is the suspicion there may never have been a raincoat...
This space for sale.

LOL Pretty good analogy too because both can result in a surprising display of bollocks....

I don't take my coat off these days....


Well, I've seen you without a coat, Pedro, and I wasn't particularly surprised... Mind you, it takes a lot to surprise me these days...  ;)


I believe if they marketed Songsmith as a party game, like a new kind of kareokie, get pissed, sing your favorite song, then it pumps it through melodyne to bring it up to temperement, and then puts it through songsmith, and hey presto, youve covered Angel for the umpteenth time, it would sell, but as an actual musicians tool?

It's a nice idea on paper, but the amount of work gone to producing it just seems.. wasteful. It's gimicky, sounds cheap, and the results are pretty much... useless.

It actually makes me feel proud to own several other so called 'gimmicks', namely a tenori-on... an eBow... Logic studio, and feel proud that they actually do useful and professional sounding things.

But it still amuses me that in Pedro's Other Me collection of rearrangements that.. none of them 'work', and the program seems to struggle to figure out what chord fits what vocal, and ends up never resolving comfortably.

Do you have any other vocal lines we could prod through it, jem?


I say we put the Skiing Song through it and see what happens...  ;)
