Description
I didn't find the pencil tool but I found musical typing. I am a lousy typist and I've never played piano in my life. I don't expect anyone to like it. But it is short. ;)

You Ander... Me Ander...
This is strange and meandering... but that's not the point... you learned about the musical keyboard! One more tool for you to know. Even if you don't use it again, you know it is there. FEARLESS, that's what you are. Great to see you finding all the doodads... the pencil's a little further buried... you'll find it soon enough. And with most pencils, when you finally do find it, you'll be a little disappointed at how it was so overhyped. (evil smirk.)
ttfn,
Drakonis

Ignorant, more like!
Experimental since I'm doing my best to assault ears. I saw the pencil..it was what my arrow changed into when I pushed a button but it was very self conscious. No search for pencil tool yielded anything. I'm guessing you use the pencil to move notes or change them on a piano roll? I liked typing because I could use all the fingers. This REALLY is the first thing I ever played. So, I started at rock bottom. :)

Better than cringe,
I expect. I have "seen" the pencil. I will track it down and kill it, hopefully..today sometime. I won't post many more things, though. I was proud I played something. And I assigned the same thing to three different voices, in mastering...a new place I found. I don't know what a lot of that stuff does, yet. Thanks Jack. :)

worm-hole-journey
wow I like your voltage-controlled-filter settings combined/stacked sounds envelope generator settings in this - your song here - it is so appropriately titled - tone-poem-jazz-like - it is this long subject exposition - it is hard to stop it in the middle - because more is wanted. - it seems to have worm-holed me, thrusting me into parallel dimension #2 - refreshing because it - well - just is - don't ask me to choose a key at this point please - nice * ~

Three:
Violins, upright bass and grand piano. It is the first thing I typed out on the keyboard. You are making a joke..? I think is definitely experimental and also accidental. Maybe, it annoying but as I said, it is short. I may actually learn to type play. That is a miracle waiting to happen. Thank you. :)

I like how,
you're willing to share your learning experiences with the MJ community. The teacher side of me really respects that. I'm sure others benefit from it as well. I'm sure someone will listen to this and want to know where the pencil and the musical typing features are. Keep learning and sharing and all that will happen is you shall continue to grow.

Next stop
is my finding a pencil with my name on it. Hopefully, since I started at the the bottom I will go up. Thanks. :)

Yes! Congratulations. Unless you're an expert on whatever you're using as a controller it doesn't matter how the notes get there. You can even do just one note to start, and then copy and paste, dragging the note to different pitches and durations

It would be
a lot easier if I knew anything about music. Your fault, you know. You were egging me on. Still need to try the pencilling thingy. Dave, you didn't have to fav. (I know this sucks... ) Love ya! :)

Today it's much easier to create music
... as long as one still has inspiration, ideas, and creativity. I personally don't consider if one has skills playing an instrument or using a particular tool, if the result is not appealing, although I have respect for great instrument players. In your case I could hear a good inspiration and ideas, so your work has great value. Keep it up !

Oh yes..
I have ideas. I have inspiration. I lack ability but I'm trying to make it happen. I was chuffed that I actually played something more than dat dat dat dah, dat dat duh...the Indian drum beat that was my only piece I could play on a piano. :) It is another step, hopefully, in the right direction. Thank you. :)

Hi,
I just wanted to let you see how really bad I was at this. I sound like the phantom of the opera on a toy piano. :)

We live and we learn
That's whats so great about this Charlene. You show a willingness to try something new, learn a new way, and do what you've never done before. That is a wonderful thing to behold.

As for the music, like everything else in life we first learn to crawl, then we walk, and finally we run. I like that you do this thing we all love with courage and humility. You aren't afraid to try new things and learn to make them work for you.

Bravo to you Charlene, I love what you are doing.

Hah!
If I could live for another 50 years I might actually be able to play something that sounds good. Thanks, Ed. :)

A useful tool!
I use it when I'm away and can't carry a keyboard.

A very odd piece, slightly unhinged with hint of madness trying to escape :-)

Cheers

Dick

Penciling
Wow...my question today on chat was posed with no knowledge of this track...how freaky is that?! This actually works, very freeform...underground hip jazz feel. Cool Char!

No talent.
No knowledge. No clue. I tried. It is too steep a learning curve when you don't play anything. You're too kind, really. Really! :)

You give me the confidence to submit some of my own songs. Thanks.
Demeter7 said 2181 days ago (December 5th, 2011)
Hah!
Then, my absurd lack of know how has served a useful purpose. I was trying here to let my friends know that I was experimenting. I know a lot of ways to not make good music. Thanks.
