Musical Composing technology sure has changed in the last five years – all for the better. My Akai S5000, which in its day was one of the most badass samplers on the planet, is darn near ready for the curb. A fairly new software program called Konakt by Native Instruments runs circles around it. I LOVE it.

The most kickassest thing of all is I can now play guitar directly into the computer and it will sound like any instrument – very cool. There’s a video showing how this works here - BrianMooreGuitars. Check out the synth pickup link. And while this all may sound well and good, the downside is it’s very easy to get distracted. Questions pop into your mind like “How does MACK THE KNIFE sound on a church organ?” or “Does THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA maintain its original integrity when hummed by an African voice choir?” But there’s no time for that. Must keep editing, scoring, effecting – too many people have worked too hard on this film. Play time will come later, yes play time will come la - wait - how about HOT FOR TEACHER on a glockenspiel?! ; - l
