NEW RELEASE! Acoustic Guitar Solos by William a Jones

For about the last 8 months, especially during pre-vaccine COVID-19 days, I have been recording acoustic guitar.  Some of the tracks in this release originated from several video series on Instagram.  Others were final versions of tracks written earlier in 2020.  Most tracks are missing drums and the volume is set fairly low.  This makes for "easy listening" and a very relaxing 1/2 hour of music (16 songs, 28 min 42 sec).

Music Studio Computer Stopped Working!

 Sorry for the lack of output lately!  My studio computer stopped working!  I walked into the studio, heard this loud POP! and it was gone.  Experts say it was a transistor on the motherboard.  Rather than repair this 12 year old friend, I ordered a new one from AVADIRECT.  A custom H570 desktop with the following hardware: Define 7, No PSU, E-ATX, Grey Mid Tower Case TUF GAMING H570-PRO WIFI, Intel® H570 Chipset, LGA 1200, DP, ATX Motherboard Core™ i9-11900K 8-Core 3.5 - 5.3GHz Turbo, LGA 1200, 125W TDP, Processor 32GB Kit (4 x 8GB) HyperX FURY DDR4 3200MHz, CL16, Black, DIMM Memory PULSE RX 580 8G G5  Video Card (already owned, thank goodness!)

@williamajonesmusic is the Official William a Jones Account on Instagram

 I've setup an account on Instagram  @williamajonesmusic It was a learning experience on getting a decent product to the platform.  Daily improvises, called the Video Jam Series, is my current project.  Some YouTube videos were also modified to run on the platform.    The Video Jam Series shoots live guitar and keyboard improvises.  Some jam motifs are worked out a few minutes before.  The goal is to capture improvised music.  Then, after initial recording of audio on both iPhone and Cubase DAW, the audio is processed.    Processing can include: Adding complementary instruments Adding EQ, compression, guitar amps, normalization, tempo detection, midi note editing   Importing video to Cubase, lining up audio files, exporting video with processed audio   Video is converted to the Instagram "square"
