With Winter approaching ...
« on: October 26, 2015, 09:26:54 AM »
With Winter approaching and needing to spend less time outside you may be thinking it is a good time to spend more time playing your AR.  Yes, you could just press some buttons and play something .. or .. you could spend some time understanding how the AR actually functions and what it will do.  The AR is a fabulous organ and is capable of producing voices/styles we have not heard before .. if only we knew how to do it!

A good starting point is to go through Peter's Pearls as set out in this Board.  I know, there is so much to get one's head round, and it is much easier just to 'press a button'.  To create something of your own is much more satisfying than just pressing a button, and the possibilities with the AR are endless.  So if you have not done this before (I have, but have forgotten a lot of it!) start at the bottom of Page 2 and work your way up, trying out all all Peter's tips and suggestions.  The trick is to remember some of these things and use them when you want to play something.

Peter,

I think the research you have done into the theory behind our 'music hobby' is quite amazing.  I have never seen anybody put together such useful explanations of things as you have done.  When I read things I do know something about you seem to expand things just that little bit further.

Keep up the good work!
