Another crack at mixing some horns with guitar driven blues

Hey Everyone,

I've been playing around with the Horns virtual instrument in Logic again and come up with the attached track. What do people think? Is it a little too busy in places.. (?) I was going for a big-band blues funk kind of vibe.

- I used Bias Amp 2 for guitar amp simulation (I played all parts on a LP 2015 Traditional).

- Drums are a hybrid EZ drummer kit based on the drumkit from hell (-- I generally like this kit; has some nice choked crash sounds) but with the progressive snare and a less metal-sounding kick.

Creating Background Music For Video

In the last year every single audio recording I have done, has been as background music for video clients.  After decades of recording music for artists to release this has been a big change for me. I've learned a few things that I believe can help others who need to make music for video, from maximizing time and value of the created music, to creating moments that give videographers great places to put in video transitions. 

I'd love to hear from others that need to create music for video and learn what you are doing. 

Which mixer to use with SP404 for beat making setup


could anyone point me in the direction of the type of mixer I should use with an SP404 for a beatmaking/recording set up. I am after something reasonably cheap, doesn’t need heaps of inputs. 

I’m hoping to be able to use the mixer to record/mix a few more Mics into the SP404s mic in. I’m hoping to use this to have a few mics on the drums

I’m hoping to be able to use the mixer without any laptops etc


I’m not even sure if this is possible, thanks al for your help!
