A new music software is about to take the entire computer audio and music software by storm, striking the perfect balance between soul and R&B.
Developed hand in hand with Grammy-winning artist Alicia Keys, Native Instruments’ Alicia’s Keys Virtual Piano software brings Alicia Keys’ very own music within reach. This software recreates Keys’ signature Yamaha C3 Neo grand piano. The entire project is a product of a close craftsmanship between the renowned keyboard software developer Thomas Scarbee and Alicia Keys herself. Native Instruments was able to capture that distinct Alicia Keys sound, after two full years of hard work!
Using nothing but the best vintage microphones and high-end outboard studio gear, this new sampled grand is not your everyday instrument. It has a number of strong features and a great tone, at a modest price.
This new music software utilizes 17GB of high resolution samples paired with 12 discrete velocity layers per note. It uses sophisticated emulation of crucial sonic aspects such as key release, pedal sustain functionality as well as sympathetic resonance.
Alicia’s Keys user interface also provides complete control over the sound in order to further adjust it to the particular musical preference and personal playing style of the user. And to make things even better, it also includes a studio-quality convolution reverb that allows a number of authentic room ambiances ranging from a small piano chamber to a large stage or concert hall.
The actual piano of Alicia Keys is a Yamaha C3, a part of the limited edition Neo cabinetry. It is a six-foot grand, which means that its low register is less full and deep than on a nine-foot concert grand. Yamaha pianos are widely respected for their bright, in-your-face sound, and that the same characteristic is preserved in this music software.
You will be very impressed with the realistic features of Alicia’s Keys. The velocity response makes it extremely playable even when you are not as good as Alicia Keys and every range of the keyboard responds well just as it should.
Aside from its built-in convolution reverb, it also has a standard DSP reverb that gives you more options if you are running on a slower computer. However, even without the reverb, the piano’s natural ambiance is beautiful. Probably because of its meticulous tuning – each unison has exactly the right amount of microscopic tuning, making the tone of the choruses almost perfect, just like on a real piano.
Alicia’s Keys is ideal for a pop ballad sound, richer and more up-front than the Yamaha C7 or the German Steinway. It is by far the most inviting to play and the most flexible to use among all other piano samples and virtual pianos.
Make music out of sheer inspiration. Evoke deep emotions with every note. Get Native Instrument’s Alicia’s Keys Virtual Piano* today!
Up until a few weeks ago, this would have been a difficult question to answer. But then Violent J answered Juggalos questions about The Mighty Death Pop! Jokers Card in an edition of the Hatchet Herald, and much more information about this Jokers Card came to light. Back to the question at hand, ICPs Hallowicked will be exponentially better this year thanks to the meaning of The Mighty Death Pop!s Jokers Card.
Violent J explained that The Mighty Death Pop!s Jokers card is a device designed to make people realize their life could end any instant. Death could “pop” out of nowhere when you least expect it, and there you have it. Just like any Jokers card, that for The Mighty Death Pop! has a moral as well. As Violent J himself puts it:
“My interpretation is that The Death Pop teaches us to respect the life weve been given and do our best to avoid an early death.”
He goes onto explain how people often take things for granted and take chances with their own morality. They play with their lives for the sake of attention thinking nothing of it, but doing so and taking risks can but what leads to your end. Interestingly enough, Violent J says that The Mighty Death Pop!s Jokers Cards colors are pink, purple, and yellow because theyre the least dangerous colors he could think of.
The idea is that even though it appears harmless, this Jokers Card is really the most dangerous yet. And that is exactly why ICPs Hallowicked 2012 will be one for the books.
For those who are unaware, ICPs Hallowicked is the annual ICP concert that takes place in Detroit on Halloween night. ICPs Hallowicked been taking place since 1994, and it possibly the most highly anticipated ICP event every year after Gathering of the Juggalos. This year being the year that the most highly anticipated ICP Jokers Card to date is being released, ICPs Hallowicked is going to be out of control.
Yes, every Jokers Card has to do with death in some way, shape, or form, but most determine where the deceased will travel to after they die, not about what will kill them. Furthermore, The Mighty Death Pop!s Jokers Card doesnt necessarily teach Juggalos and other ICP fans to be better people un order to guarantee their spot in Shangri-La; instead, it teaches them to simply enjoy life and be smart while theyre still around.
Because Halloween is a celebration of the dead (and obviously ICPs Hallowicked celebrates Halloween), Jokers Cards are often spoken about at ICPs Hallowicked concerts. Again though, this year is different because the talk will be about enjoying life and living it to the fullest rather than being a good person to save yourself after the fact. With this unique juxtaposition, ICPs Hallowicked, when concentrating on The Mighty Death Pop! Jokers Card and its message, will be one to remember.
What are the best blues instrumental music tracks? It’s a great question. Blues and lyrics go hand in hand, but what if you want just the blues without all the words? With that question in mind I set out to find the best instrumentals buried amongst the blues musical landscape. Here is my list of the best blues instrumentals and a little background on the musicians that gave them life.
The #1 spot on my blues instrumental music chart goes to “Juke” by Little Walker. Little Walker, whose real name is Marion Walter Jacobs, is a well known and respected blues singer, harmonica player, and guitarist. He is one of the greats and has been compared to other great artists like Charlie Parker and Jimi Hendrix. He changed people’s views on what they expected from a harmonica player by showing them what was possible. In March of 2008 he was placed in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the sideman category and was the only artist to get in for his work with a harmonica.
The #2 spot on my blues instrumental music chart goes to “Hide Away” by Freddie King. Freddie King, also known as “The Texas Cannonball”, was a great blues guitarist and singer. His guitar style was based off of Texas and Chicago influences that he developed over his twenty year recording career. He has inspired many great musicians such as Bill Freeman, Denny Campbell, and Jimmie Vaughan. He also was one of the first artists to have a multi-racial band on stage with him. Sadly, at the young age of 42, King passed away due to heart failure on December 28, 1979.
The #3 spot on my blues instrumental music chart goes to “Albatross” by Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green. Fleetwood Mac is a British/American rock band started back in 1967. Through the years the band members came and went, but they still were able to gain some success. The only band member to stay throughout was drummer Mick Fleetwood. Their most successful period is when they were led by guitarist Peter Green in the late 1960s.
These are just a few of my favorite instrumental music tracks and they are just skimming the surface of all the great blues instrumentals out there. I hope you enjoyed reading about them and challenge you to get out there and find some of your own and share them with the world. Until next time.
There are plenty of celebrities who have had cosmetic surgery. Maybe some of your favorite personalities may have gone under the knife too. If they wont admit it through the words that come out of their mouth, the difference in their appearance tells everything. Some of the most famous people in the world of politics, movies or even sports have their own stories and reasons why they decided to have a cosmetic surgery. Here are some of the lists of the celebrities who considered having a cosmetic surgery:
Madonna the queen of pop who was very popular in 1980s for her music, concerts, and movies had several reports of undergoing a cosmetic surgery. A face lift, nose job, chin fix, jaw reduction, and filling injections are few surgical procedures she has had. Her nose also trimmed down a few notches compared before. Her figure remains as natural looking as it always has. Her side initially tried to deny the procedures but the results were hard to cover up.
Marilyn Monroe is an oldie and she has been gone for quite sometime, but she had rhinoplasty surgery sometime between being a brunette and becoming a blonde. She was considered one of the most beautiful women who ever walked the earth. Whats relieving is she may not have achieved the title without some nose and chin work.
Michael Jackson the King of Pop, had a few cheek implants, some jaw redesigning, a lot of nose jobs and some permanent skin lightening techniques. He began investing in nose job during his teen years. He shocked the world when he underwent skin lightening cosmetic surgery for his whole body.
Pamela Anderson is quite obvious with the breast implants and it has been rumored that she has had some work done on her face as well.
Hillary Clinton the wife of former President Bill Clinton has allegedly undergone several cosmetic surgeries. The politician has had eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing, filling injections, and neck lifts based on unconfirmed results. Repots also say that Clinton spent a huge sum of money investing in cosmetic procedures to enhance her appearance.
Nicole Kidman nose changed completely. Her surgery is more on the rumor side of things, but she has changed in the past fifteen years or so. She has gotten older, but she is still beautiful.
Victoria Beckham the wife of English soccer icon is still gorgeous although she has had some work done. She reportedly underwent breast implants and lip augmentation. It is quite obvious that she is different from what she used to be.
There are more celebrities who underwent plastic surgeries. The most beautiful faces in the world during the past and present may not be as natural as you think. It seems that more celebrities take the risk just to look better than the rest.

The old business model for selling musical instruments is being shattered, thanks in large part to the Internet and the large retail chains.
The opening of many online stores selling musical instruments is good news to music lovers as you can now better compare prices as well as look at customer reviews.
Here are a few examples of online stores selling musical instruments:-
Music, formerly known as Brasswind and Percussion Trading is currently one of the popular stores that retails musical scores, instruments and accessories to wind bands ranging from primary schools to professional ones.
Alamo Music Center, a store selling musical instruments, is the site for viewing custom-made instruments of Marclay’s design: a drum set that has been altered with cymbals and drums positioned at heights corresponding to their tonal qualities and a customized 12-foot long accordion.
A good music instrument store will offer deals on the hottest music gear. Music123 is one such store that has a wide selection of musical instruments and musical equipment.

As an alternative to selling musical instruments as an employee of a business, you may want to consider starting a business of your own.

Retailing musical instruments can be a great business venture for the musically inclined entrepreneur who’s seeking a way to capitalize on their skills and interests. To be successful in a musical instrument business, you will need to do your research on the following – competitors, wholesale suppliers and distributors, business location, source of funding, product delivery methods, business policies such as refunds, warranties just to name a few.
Ideally, this type of specialty retailing is best suited to a retail storefront. However, for the financially challenged entrepreneur, the business could begin on a part-time basis from home; as a joint venture with a like-minded retailer, such as a CD shop; or online.
To supplement your income from selling musical instruments, there are complementary ways to do this by offering instrument repairs, classes, rentals, and sales of related products such as sheet music. Also, be sure to establish relationships with schools, music teachers, associations and clubs in the community. This can be a fantastic way to promote your business, products and services quickly as word-of-mouth advertising and referrals really work.

was an fascinating day on behalf of the hit instrumental production game. One of the paramount newcomers is Alex da Kid who broke against the site producing the hits “I worship the way you lie” by Eminem featuring Rihanna, and Ariplanes by B.O.B. He is positively a front-runner on behalf of the smash hits to he has produced. Two of the biggest hit records of the day. I in addition like Alex da Kid for the reason that of his power to create a sound to is markedly his own. He creates an instrumental to is a little grimy using durable drums in traditional hip step patterns, yet the composition he writes on top of it has very pop chord progressions to allow on behalf of particularly catchy hooks to be in print on top of them. This creates a song to a rapper can sound profit on and still acquire telephone system airplay.
Another standout producer of the day would be, like many other years, Kanye West. Kanye is constantly a intense mind in the composition production district, stylish my judgment Kanye is solitary of the supreme. This day he gets the drift off from me on behalf of putting jointly solitary of the supreme hip step albums of all measure in “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” This is a hip step collection to sounds like refusal other hip step collection. Musically it draws influences from all of Kayne’s preceding installation. It has elements of the young soul driven beats of college loafer, the cord arrangements of Late Registration, Synthesis of Graduation, and vehicle modify melodies of 808’s and heartbreak. Combining all of his preceding influences into solitary tremendous body of graft, creating a musical stunning success to no one has interminably heard earlier all the while producing smashes on behalf of other artists puts Kanye up front.
The third producer whom you may perhaps argue as the paramount producer of 2010 is Boi-One-Da who has been carnage it on behalf of the go on connect years. Stylish 2010 he produced certain smashes on behalf of Gucci Mane, Drake, and Soulja Boy. I like how he has wet southern technique beats but still is able to infuse his production with a a selection of amount of pop appeal. His records cultivate to drift down towards being the single.
