Pretty cool effect to play with. I enjoyed it.

I threw on a couple of Waw Waw effects
A couple? You used it throughout! Not that I minded.

Actually Wade, why in the world does it have to go somewhere? Another puzzling concept I'm forever confronted with from musicians. Why does anything have to go somewhere? Such pressure you
conformist's types place on yourselves in the art of expressing art. In my opinion you're creating a rigid
stencil that must go from point A to point B in order for it to mean something. Why can't it go from point A to point X?

You're in the business of trying to communicate to the listener and you apparently
are self depracating as you post these. Yet, I like the piece and whatever it is you're trying to communicate, it lands in my ears in a pleasant way.
Yet.......You think it's sounds like crap. If you don't care for it and yet the listener does, what do you call that process?

So much for that communicative element between performer and listener, eh Wade?
I just love going in that direction with ya......................lol

Let x = A

Why not stay at Point A? Even you, in your mini-rant, exhibit a compulsion to go Somewhere - what's the difference between A and X? :twisted:

First of all G, Wade and I playfully go back and forth all the time. I do consider us good online friends and he knows I respect his work.
No need that you have defend. Wade understands my sense of humor and sarcasm.

Sure....why not stay at point A?

Gald you liked Mike and thanks for the defence Dr G.

The piece is what it is. Nothing great. The nino tone wasn't very good in the original, that's what I meant about sounding like crap (it happens). The interesting thing (for me) was using the waw waw effect that not only covered the crap tone but also added interest and accentuated the rhythmic side (which was its best side). The two affects were just two different settings of the waw waw. Very subtle difference in timing of the effect that changes at around 36 second into the piece.

I've never heard the waw waw effect with sax (although somebody must have done this sometime). The effect is, well, interesting with the nino and accomplished covering what was less than acceptable tone. Just another trick/tool out there that in this instance worked for me.

Has nothing to do with the composition (or lack of same). What did you think of the effect?
