I present also some of my music in Youtube as Mikexception. Here I am going to pass some my own recordings which never have got video clips as for Youtube . I learn how to play myself and it is a pretty long history. In past I recorded just to enjoy it later myself. Most of them created in quite far from home places like Greece, Egypt, China where I had been working for years for bread and butter. These are simple PC digital recordings of analogue sound done in „one track” technology with sound cards – no MIDI files, no processing, no replacements, no adding. Live performance music and vocal at instant time. So in some of them you may find a bit annoying intervals needed for in fly re-arrangement of instrument settings. Anyway because I found that I like them I’ll try to pass this joy one by one to others. . Note: Using „enough” headphones is a must – with small PC speaker it’s disaster . Instruments used by be in chronology order from 1972 :Acoustic Guitar, Harmony, Casio MT-52, Acoustic piano, Yamaha PSR 400, Technics PR 130 Casio WK1800, Casio CTK 900, Casio MZ-2000. Actually I also use CME hammer action 88 keys USB keyboard connected to MZ-2000 with MIDI cable.
In 2014 I supplemented my key instruments with sound module GEM WK-2 which I use controlled with MIDI cable by CME UF-8. As previous everything is recorded to HD in live analog technology.
