My intentions and the reality of doing are very different. I've been trying a different DAW and it's good everyday except one. It does want to record live. It's Reaper. All the other DAW's I have that actually work with Mac Catalina, have no problem working with my old tried and true TASCAM US-4X4. Reaper works great with my midi stuff but plug a microphone or guitar in and it has no idea what to do. Anybody have any suggestions?

So when is the deadline for sure? I was planning on week 1 being this Weekend but now I see I’m already behind the eight ball. I’ll have to redo my composition calendar for the year and reschedule studio time. It’s all electronic & it’s my studio so it’s not a BDD (Big Damn Deal) but it’s tedious.

Yes happy new year everyone. This is an outstanding site. Everyone is very kind and insightful. I also got off my compositional duff and started composing again. For that I am grateful. I loved listening also. I didn’t write as much as I had hoped but next year is here. Thanks everyone

I believe in this particular case it's Bm-Em/B-Bm-Bm7-Bsus2-Bsus4 with a B note layered an octave higher.

That last one is quite interesting because it's two fifth intervals in one chord (B-F# and E-B), but differently than a m7 or M7. I think it's there to resolve both the sus2 and the m7 at once, but in two different ways.

I agree. I think the fifths are a power interval/tension enhancement allowing the tension to disappear at resolution like a magic trick.

and i could hear your jazzy entry for week 24 perfectly, but in case you wanna try anyway here ya go: https://weeklybeats.com/music/upload?ha … 28923912e4

Week 26 worked but not week 24

I was just trying to convert my tune for this week and cubase gave me an error message. By the time I figured it out, I missed it by seconds. Could I get a link to send it in anyway? Thanks.

Apparently no one can play my week 24 submission even if they download it. Could I have a link to resubmit it please? Thanks

My tune played fine on my computer but will not play on the site here and it is an m4a format. Is there any way I can reload it as a mp3 for week 1?
