That was great thanks.

I just had a rather embarrassing moment. Earlier this morning I had unplugged my headphones from my Pc so I could listen to something on my phone and I completely forgot about it. There was at least 40 people within listening distance when I clicked on the link above. In a state of panic, as I had no idea what was happening, I just held my fingure on the power button for a very long 5 seconds until my Pc switched off. Thankfully people were complaining that they were enjoying the music when my machine finally stopped.. I'm still feeling rather hot under the collar :shocked::doh::ashamed

Don't panic... just hit mute. I bought myself a keyboard with a volome wheel on it. very handy. They all should have one.

That clip is 5 years old check out some of his newer stuff.

It gets worse: I have to admit to being an IT tech and should have known several ways to sort this out quickly but everyone was starring at me so I frantically hit Alt F4 several times and when that didn't work, I panicked. After your comment I have just been reminded that my old white Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard has all the volume, mute, play/pause buttons.

On Alto I use a BenDavis vocaltone which I've used it since the early 1980's. It's the only one I use on alto.

After listening to the track you mentioned the sound there is a happy convergence of, microphone, distance from microphone, ambience of the room, mood of player, reed happening to be in the zone, developing some small skill using recording techniques with audacity including picking and adding the right effect, getting some small proficiency in creating suitable backing tracks with BiaB and picking the right key that suits the sax and the voice.

I think if I recorded it again it would sound and feel different.
