Hi all. Thanks for the site John. From Australia I am a senior citizen now and have been an semi pro/amateur musician since my teens. My interests nowadays together with old farts of a similar vintage to myself are putting down in recordings the music we have all played together way back when. My main use of midi is for sequencing percussion as good drummers of our vintage seem to be thin on the ground. We often makemusic at a distance via the Internet and bring everyone's contribution together for mixing and mastering. My "real job" was in the electronics and it industry so this melds well with the way we make music these days. Any'ow, Cheers.
Thanks very much for posting an introduction about yourself. Being a pensioner too, and also from the IT and telecoms industry, we share a bit in common. I started as an electrical/electronics apprentice at BAC (British Aircraft Corporation) way back when they were making the VC-10 and BAC1-11, also the ill-fated TSR2. Moved into Data Processing, as it was then, operating an RCA301 rebadged as an ICT1500. Then after two years, programming, real time systems, telecomms and ended up, finally, working freelance for a satcomms company, Inmarsat. An interesting life.
I'm a colonial boy myself having been brought up in East Africa in the fifties and early sixties.
