Re: New Revolution Renaissance Demos

The new songs, like a i said before, are too similar to songs in 'new era'. Also 'Loneliness' starts with the same keyboard of a...

Re: Mixing and Mastering

It's true that often music isn't mixed or mastered (or both) well enough. I have always enjoyed the fact how Stratosongs have been mixed. I hope it remains as good :) Also Sabaton's newest album has been mixed damn well I think! Cranberries' albums are pretty well mixed too :) That video's pretty go...

Re: Koskettimet

Ohoh, on vähän vaihtunut soittimet. Nykyään on tosiaan seuraavanlainen setti:

Yamaha DX7
M-Audio Keystation 88ES
Roland SonicCell
Edit: Lisäksi tuli Roland JV-1010 orchestral-lisäkortilla, jotta kelpaa Stratoa soitella ;)

Nyt alkaa olla ihan tyytyväinen settiin :)

Nissan Altima? :)

Here in Finland gas costs about 3$ per litre. And if a gallon is around 4 litres it would be 12$ a gallon. And the price is rising at a vast speed. It is even rumoured that the price of gas will rise to almost 4$ per litre within a year.
