I've just bought a little microphone for our computer so that Deanery and I can have high jinks with it in producing something for a friends' wedding. Today I felt like stopping work for a few minutes so I thought I'd try it out with the funky recording program I've never tried before. And then, when I'd done it, I thought I'd post it on the forum.

So, here, for no particular reason, is a recording of me humming once and whistling four times simultaneously. Apologies that it gets a bit high and buzzy at some points, but it seemed against the spirit of the experiment to refine it any more than this.

Yep - Pachelbel's Canon in D. (or small bits of it, remembered inaccurately off the top of my head.)

But thanks!

I'm thinking perhaps I should start a service producing these to order. Anyone got any requests?

Well, I'm honoured! Yes indeed - it's already mp3 format - just right-click on the link above and save it.

As for the requests, I'm now working on a WSoP arrangement in my head while reading an article about mental health. Might attempt it later this afternoon if I finish work early enough!

This is fantastic!

I rememmber when you were young and you'd do note-perfect recreations of various songs using the PC speaker and the 'beep' command. And also an amazing cover of 'Everybody Hurts' with you playing all the parts yourself. How about another version of that?

Excellent stuff and really quite impressive! It's like a Clangers barbershop quartet. Or what a primary school recorder group would sound like if it was in tune and had a sense of rhythm.

Malcolm, if you ever need:
- a didjeridoo noise
- a chaffinch noise
or
- a wine pouring from a bottle noise

reproducing without the aid of props (other than a recording device) just let me know.

(I think a version of Waltzing Matilda would be the only thing that could combine all three! So that's my request ... store it up for a rainy day )

Consider it done!

(apologies - this one takes even longer to load. And I haven't figured out how to stop it going all buzzy - it doesn't do that when I play it back in the recording program.)

That's awesome!

You should make a montage of the Clangers and post it on You Tube

That is absolutely amazing... how about one more request? God Only Knows, by the Beach Boys - some awesome harmonies for you to work on

Aha, an excellent suggestion! Right, I'm a-thinkin' about it - will probably make a start this week.

Fantastic! If that one proves too tricky, the Beach Boys have done loads of other beautiful harmony-rich songs. In My Room springs to mind as another good one.

Incidentally, what software are you using? Is it Mac-only?
