I remember a challenging studio recording session with highland bagpipes. It seemed like the loudest thing I had ever recorded – louder than a drum kit, louder than an electric guitar cabinet. Folks on Twitter and Facebook mentioned some loud things they’ve recorded: a glass armonica, a banda trombone, a screaming toddler, a piledriver, a mile-long BNSF freight train coupling boxcars at 20 feet, implosion of Texas stadium brought down with C4, and an OgreCat being electrocuted and then set aflame!
So field recordists point microphones at some crazy loud sources
CodeFN42 has released Cales, a free VST MIDI plugin for Windows that allows a user to map a keyboard's keys to a musical scale. This will ensure that the user will always stay in key, and never hit a wrong note.
When "easy mode" is enabled, a user can play any scale using only the white keys with "C" always being the tonic (or "root" note).
