AMAZING GRACE arrangement (posted by Jim Taylor, 20 Jun 2016, 03:02)

Hello fellow Cadenzians. I would like for you to do an arrangement of AMAZING GRACE in any style, key, or instrumentation. I just sent in number 50 of my horn quartets and it is AMAZING GRACE. Maybe your church uses different chords, or you can come up with something really new. When you hear my version, the first time through (after the intro) is pretty much right out of the hymn book. It is said that the melody to this this folk song was created using just the black keys on the piano. I am looking forward to your music.

Desktops Not Extinct Yet! (posted by Daniel Rowe, 6 May 2016, 23:53)

Like Jerzy and Patrick, I still use a desktop computer. My favorite version of Cakewalk (a sequencer program) is incompatible with my newer computer, so I use a HP Pavilion, at least 15 years old, for music-making. Kudos to HP for building a machine so reliable.

I started out on the Commodore 64, which had one cool feature: ring modulation and hard-sync sounds. You could actually make your own sci-fi sounds, like ray guns, quite easily. The Amiga came a little later, which Jerzy had.
