New music from Playfio - Latest song - Velvet

New Music from Playfio introducing the new track Velvet
I'm happy to introduce the first song to go online from Playfio. This track is called Velvet and has been in the making for the past couple of months.

This started off as an instrumental, the kind of piece that would suit a moody build up on the opening credits for a film. From that point, I left it a couple weeks and came back to it. I then decided to add some guitar riffs, and then after that the lyrics just fell into place.

For the recording of the vocals on this track I've used an MXL 990 microphone that I bought at the start of this year from America, for some reason I wasn't able to buy the USB version in the UK. This is one of the first tracks I have released to use this microphone I have to say I'm pretty happy with the sound of it delivers.

The music software that used to create this track was a combination of Propellerheads Reason 5 and Cubase. I still haven't got round to say they have enough money to buy reason 6, which does look pretty awesome. For the time being I’ll just have to do my vocals through Cubase. I'm sure anyone of you who are familiar with making their own music via a computer will be aware of this process. I have come across are few problems when trying to re-wire reason to Cubase, but that's for another post.

I have also been using an AKAI MPK mini which is a small DAW keyboard , which is very portable and does the trick for me at the moment, although at times, I do wish I had a larger keyboard playing chords and more intricate keyboard work.

Anyone with experience of making music in the above formats. I love you to share your opinions or any music which you've made yourself. So far I have uploaded this track to Sound Cloud , which can be found here:

Finally, a video is to follow, which will accompany the song, which I will then had to my YouTube channel.
