I'm a drummer more than a keyboardist but I can play keyboards too. It's just not the best instrument I can play.

There are 3 things
I need to clean up digitally in the studio.
1: Connecting the electronic drum-set "brain" back up to the control room's speakers. It's a Roland TD-20 brain. It does play and feel like an acoustic drum-set. (called the Hombershire - The way something's played) Also, The sounds the brain has are great. If I want I can do anything I have in Pro Tools Ultimate (12) with either using MIDI or USB to play, practice, record and anything a keyboard can do.
2: Cleaning up the studio physically and digitally. There are a couple things I need to clean up and straighten link I record/edit any more tracks/channels.
3: I have 2 songs (MAYBE 3), I need to finish. 1 is almost done but, I will not leg any more.
IF you know what I know about music (history, theory & science), you'd be recording songs a lot. So, what I"m going to do is
I"M just stating it. (Mainly because Ia little mad at myself for not recording more and finishing up a bunch I have.
So, I hope, you as a fan, will forgive me for not putting out sounds and songs for this long.
I do appreciate your hangin' on for this long.

Hello everyone!!! I've had a lot going on. I was messing around with a 5 band Equalizer plugin to get just the right sound. And that is what makes the sounds so fantastic that you could just immerse yourself in the sound. Now the groove et cetra is another story.
I've been working on "Extra Extra" and came up with a few really nice "ornamentation" melodies that will leave you smiling. (Like icing on the cake.) The cake alone is great but this leaves it awesome. And there's a little transition into the "A" section of the song. I need to come up with a totally different "C" section. I don't know where it will lead me but I do need a transition into it and out it.
As for the song "I Find Meet In", I released it under my label "Sounds Like Studio". You can find it to stream or download on 250 different sites from Apple Music to Amazon Music. So look for xZiggy on their or Sounds Like Studio. Also, I will be releasing other finished songs as well.
I'll be taking my finished songs and making them sound even better with this little plugin called "Maxim" that takes everything and makes it sound clearer and (Seemingly) louder. So you can hear all the nuances in the songs. The leader of the band "Train" has a video with explanations on how to make your "Bounced" tunes from a session file to a MP3 (or any other bounced file) to sound louder and clearer. You fans be the judge to your ears and let me know what you think about the revisions.
Last thing, I'll upload the lyrics to "Extra Extra". I'm exited about them and they are all done for you to read, let me know what you think.

Until next time installment and updates, here is the song "Extra Extra"s lyrics:

Extra Extra

There is a special Report
Love's Comin'
We're living in tough times, but don't worry
We're trying in tough times, Are you ready....

Extra Extra
Stand Back, Stand Back
Breaking news

(Show me a little love)

These are the times of trust,
These are the times to be strong
So be strong
true love will get us through

Don't Worry, love's comin'
We're living in tough times, but don't worry
We're trying in tough times, are you ready...
love's comin'

Raise yourself up,
I know you can
raise yourself up, It's all there
grab and hold on
Grab and hold on tight,

Don't Worry, Love's Comin'
We're living in tough times,
We're trying in tough times, give it all you got,

'cause love's comin'
love's comin'
Love's here

Hello and thank you for all the praises I'm getting. I'm doing my best and can do better I know.
It'll happen when we least expect it. (we, meaning you more than 2041 fans from around the world and me as I do surprise myself from time to time. (giggle).)
I personally don't think I deserve as many accolades getting. But hey, keep 'em coming if you feel up to it. thank you.
It makes me feel good to have you all hearing good sounds, grooves, timbres and songs.
I came up with a great sounding electric piano and I'm going to use it with "Extra Extra". The lyrics are great (done), the music is coming together. The bass groove and drum groove and hook is all coming together. I don't know where it's going but I workin' on it. Things are getting exciting about it. I'm probably going to finish up the untitled one too.
Just keep coming back and you might be surprised with some new sounds. Sorry I don't do video (now), I might in the future. That's a big might.
The V Drums are going to be up and ready to record soon. I know what's wrong with them and where it is. I just need to find out how to fix it. It's a simple output problem to the studio monitor speakers and will be fixed quick when I find out HOW.
OK, so, "Extra Extra (unfinished)" & "Project 5.8" will be worked on next to their finish. (grooves, harmonies, melodies, instruments, timbres, forms (ABACAB and so forth...music theory stuff...) Lots of things to add, mix in and so on.
So, keep coming back for good sounds!!
As we all get audibly surprised,

Say, I'm wondering, how many fans would like the Softball Jersey I'm wearing when someone took a picture of me saying "Ziggy's Studio" on it as merchandise though N1M.com/xziggy ??

I am working on the song "Extra Extra" and how some great 'ornamentation'. Tons of ways to go with the song as well. Just keep listening and I'll come out with something that will tantalize the ear buds.
Until then, PLEASE DON'T pass this unfinished version of the song around. There is so much more to be done with it. So, listen and enjoy it for what it is. More to come!!!

Now take a ride on the Ziggy train as we travel through this wonder-us land called sound, feelings and entertainment in music!!!
Soon, I"ll be coming out with a new one called "Extra Extra" about....well, you decide for yourself what it's about.
A fan said a song (I Find Meetin) had a place called "Meetin" and I never though of it that way before. LOL Great stuff!!
So, these songs I try to leave the basis open for interpretation. And that's "movable art", just like film, music videos, TV series, standup comedy et cetra.
Stationary art is like a painting, sculpture and the like where it's stationary in time.
I have this one instrument called a Key-tar and it's a MIDI instrument which means it has no sounds of it's own. Take a look at the picture with a keyboard standing upright in the background, behind the electronic drum-set, that's the key-tar called a Roland AX-1 (or AX1)
Here are a few links to Videos:
I wanted you all to hear this one that I ran across as I was searching for a few AX-1 videos because it's the style I create.
OK, here are the AX-1 videos...
Enjoy, xZiggy
