I often have confused feelings about mechanical hand clap sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 8:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Most welcome. I spent some quality time with Stashu, making the trip worth it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 8:33pm Kurt Gottschalk:

mechanical hand clap sounds are complex.

stashu is the best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 8:39pm chresti:

The more complex the better. It took me a while in the beginning, especially with dance and disco
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 8:41pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it's a journey, chresti.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 9:11pm TDK60:

Another Day: the arrangement has a tinge of melancholy along with ho-hum ennui; good musical arrangement and instrumentation. Possible hit. Mighta been a Fab4 tune had they divorced later. Thank you.
