Some minimal/deep house vibes. A very simple 4-track recording that was super easy and fun to make.
A New Kind of Beat 3
A little gtr, a little marimba, a little synth.
enjoying my life dot mp3
just kind of feeling good about stuff!!
Another drum-less synth loop featuring the Roland Sound Canvas SC-88 deploying its absolutely classic harp sample once again! All of the sounds on both this and my last post were made using hardware rather than software which is kind of a first for me in terms of synth tunes! Really enjoying it!
a new synth track featuring a new vintage gear acquisition, the Roland SC-88, providing the classic harp sample!
Fei Long Studio 8
Some FL in FL
Kind of beta testing a new recording template

A mellow, chilled-out hip-hop groove

a short instrumental featuring all your favourite instruments including the ernie ball stingray 5-string fretless bass, the PRS SE Paul's Guitar, the Takamine G-series acoustic guitar, the Hammond SK-1 organ, and the Roland DP-90 providing the piano as well as the drums!!!!
so I've been using this songwriting trick where I program a simple loop using the sequencer on my synths and sort of riff off of it to come up with the other instrumental parts. Then, when I have the idea properly fleshed out, I remove the synths. A songwriting scaffold, of sorts (though in many cases I have kept the original loop in there!!!) Anyways, for this track I included the synth loop at the very beginning so you can hear what I'm riffing off of for the rest of the track. Hope you like it!!!! -CA
Tried a bunch of new stuff this time round. It's a dance trance but I played almost everything live, including the drums which were "performed" on the keyboard, because I'm not a drummer. The only things that were automated were the drum fills, crash cymbals, and the marimba/piano 2 patterns.
So I play in this cover band back home that is a bit heavier in terms of sound and we have a keyboard player so I keep saying we should do a metal version of Sandstorm. No one believes me that it will work so I decided to make a quick demo to show them what is possible. A super metal lead guitar takes the place of the lead synth, the chords are from my dad's old Roland JX-8P, bass is my Stingray 5, and the drums are factory keyboard drums performed live on the Roland DP-90. sandstorm Great song!!!!
Jazz Trio Improv #1
I recently did a fairly significant overhaul to my recording setup - trying out the new rig with a jazz trio type format with an improvised double bass part which I mic'd and DI'd the pickup & blended the two together. Stereo piano is from the Roland DP-90 and the drums are the factory brushes kit from the DP-90 also.
FM softsynth drenched in reverb, chorus and delay

Springtime is back baby!!

Unicorns Keeping it Real
Another song from my early 20s. Going through some old files and finding some stuff that I hope is worth posting on here. I will try
Piano Jam 2020
Piano improvisation based on the initial riff that eventually goes into a groove section which I loop and add bass/drums. And then there is an outtro part after the groove with a cheeky solo on the fretless bass.
An old instrumental jam from when I lived on the island. I think this is from around 2013.
Big Can of Beans
Cheeky mandolin feature. Instrumental. Had to call it something.
The Last Baseball Game - Part II
Part I of The Last Baseball Game is meant to be the song they play before the game, as an intro. This is meant to be the post-game epilogue 'final farewell' kinda number. I meant to do a fadeout at the end, but I forgot, so the track just sort of plays out. I figured I might as well just leave it like that.
chords 'n gourds
An autumnal fingerpickin' instrumental.
Red Prairie Dawn
Takin a pass at this classic old time fiddle tune by Garry Harrison! Followed by a little acoustic guitar postlude, and then the neighbourhood cat shows up at the very end.
Soothin' Synths, Part 2: a Synthy Lullaby
We have a Prophet-6 at work right now and I just found out that the sequencer is polyphonic. Programmed a chordy little loop and messed around with it a bit while grabbing it on my H2. Hope you enjoy the pure, unaccompanied sound of this gorgeous synthesizer!
Just having a play on my day off
Featuring Carlos Najar on guitar and your homeboy carrotadventure on synths and drum machine. In this upbeat improv jam I am playing the Roland GAIA synth for chords and the Korg Monologue for bass. Also operating the Roland TR-8 for beats.
From the new Yabra EP!

Slick synths in seven
Aka 21 Nugent St., AKA this deadly house in Thunder Bay where we have righteous disco-ball dance parties and bluegrass jams, and where I've been crashing the last few weeks. It's been a treat.
