The second track of my Digitakt-adventure. On the last track "Don't stop me now" I used the same guitar-samples for both guitars and recognised afterwards, that it caused some phase-cancellation. So this time I added additional samples with an alternative amp-setup and I think the guitars sound better (though of course they stay sterile/robotic because of the sampling, but this is intended). I am more satisfied with this track and I hope, that the next one will become better again :-)
- BC Rich Stealth, now with two different amps on sides

- Hihat from a free online-library
I arranged everything bar by bar in the Digitakt. When I was done I transfered the stereo-file (Overbridge is still not available) to Logic and let Chris sing above this playback.
People who know me have already recognised, that I am a big fan of The Who, in my very biased opinion the best band ever. My interest in The Who started 30 years ago and it never decreased since then. "I can see for miles" is one of the strong Singles, which The Who put out during their early career before Tommy, when they still acted as a Singles-band. "I can see for miles" was not that successful and one reason, why Townshend took the risk to go on with "Tommy", though he said himself, that in his opinion this was one of the best singles he ever wrote. And I agree.
