I'm NEVER doing playback anymore..

no the cd didn't skip but I was quite drunk and everybody could see I wasn't playing live.

And drinking and playing live.. well, that's another story

I did a gig this weekend with playback and it did not go very well to put it mildly. I think there are two main reasons why it fucked up. First one first which was my own fault. I've never done a gig before and the promoter said they wanted bands with little need of gear so I thought:easy! I'll do playback (another thing.. YOU know what YOU need, get what you need if you get it don't play. You get fucked, not the promoter.). As I mentioned before, everybody could see I wasn't really playing live. That's not a good thing

The other thing which I believe fucked things up for me was that the introducer said I was a young talented artist from Bergen who produces trance and have a JUST faboulous voice. "Today he is going to sing and perform his song."

I DON't SING!! I HAVE NEVER SUNG IN MY LIFE!! WHY! HOW!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to put the blame on other. I was responsible but the last one, fuck, who could I avoid it?

I don't know what I would have done with out my supporting friends backing me up and cheering like mad in the front. Cos, to be honest there wasn't a lot of cheering except from them. I managed to get some ok cheering at some points with some heavily clapping in the air (Yeah I know it's cheesy but what was I to do?) but then I forgot to play the keyboard, hehe.

There was a pretty big audience too, maybe 300 and I was unvoluntary picked out to *kick* off the show.

Anyway, this experience didn't turn my wish for playing live, but I'm NEVER EVER using playback again. By the way, this was my first gig ever.

Give me your flames and comfort. Especially comfort because I need it

I kinda look a bit humorous on it but it still sucks

proximus - can't say I feel sorry for ya, but you seemed to have learned from it. Methinks you're doing the best thing ya can though, admitting it and moving on. Next time ya can try sumpin' different. Playing live isn't all that hard, but it does take a bit of time to prep and practice. Good luck with sorting things out.

Peace

I suspect ya will. Just cos things didna go off as you might've liked doesn't mean you can't try again. The fact that you had enough nerve to get up there in the first place is a big start. A lot of people never get that far....

Can I import a midi file in to a hardware sequencer?

What about a sampler with sequencer? So that I can sample some sequences and tweak them real time..

What about compressors.. Right now I use T-racks for mastering.. should I put the master signal through some kind of compression.. this would improve the sound quality..

I want a kaoss pad

You can import SMF (standard midi file) into some hardware boxes. RM1X will take them, my old Roland MC-50 wouldn't.

You could set it all up in your sampler's sequencer. Things are gonna get more and more "interesting" doing the live thing with more people using s/w synths. Wonder how that's gonna all pan out?
