This is the second version of Electro-Canon. It is the same except that I added drums and changed the dynamics of a few instuments.

I also forgot to mention before that this entire song was created on my Korg Triton Extreme. Very Happy

The dynamics are much better I think in the 2nd version, I zapped away from the 1st one pretty soon exactly because I didn't like the dynamics.

Still it sounds a bit like as if ... a midi file is being played .. but I do like the ending of the 2nd version Very Happy

that's because.... the entire song IS MIDI!!! Very Happy

sorry I forgot to mention that earlier...

this is just an MP3 version of it, but the song is entirely midi (except for the drum loop) because it was created on a Korg Triton.

Hi!

Alas, I am a bit jaded when it comes to the Pachelbel Canon -- I've played it too many times for weddings.

Your approach to this work is fun. Your recording is clean, punchy, and your percussion breaks are really great fun. And I really really like the wild kind of "burn out" ending. Your variations hold interest and the length of the work, in my opinion, is well-timed.

The change to "re" from "do" on the sixth note threw me off a bit. I am so accustomed to hearing this work that the changed note occurred as a "wrong" note, even though you likely did this on purpose.

MIDI can be very, very expressive and you may want to find ways to minimize MIDI quantization and/or step entry on your future projects. An effective technique is to quantize just one or two parts and to lay down the other tracks without quantization. Then, just go into your editor and correct individual notes.

As this rendition stands, it is fun and at times it suggests to me an image of "Pachelbel at the Arcade".

Thanks for sharing. Look forward to hearing more.

-- Kevin

I totally agree with this statement.

I've often thought about doing a little Dovdiminal remix of this one - it's fun! So I was interested to see what you'd come up with.

One of the things I think is quite interesting about the canon is that it seems to switch mood quite readily between contexts I've heard it used in 'war film' type contexts while people are being shot and I've heard interpretations that bring out the fun in it - like yours!

I like it, I think it's cool.

Care to superimpose it onto 'Saving Private Ryan'?

You really should hear the Pachelbel with real cannons.

Surprisingly, when I suggest this for weddings, people don't seem very interested.

Then again, just as well. To haul cannons to gigs would be tough, plus I don't have any holsters that are big enough.

I think MIDI can be expressive at certain times, and only if you have alot of experience with it.
what i don't like is trying to imitate string instruments with MIDI.
for example an electric guitar will always sound very poor with MIDI.
