Christmas wrapping

Post by R-Tape » Sat Dec 02, 2017 9:32 pm

This is the best xmas song ever, after 'Stop the Cavalry' of course. Is there anything I can do to temp someone to do a Beeper version I can use on the Tape Magazine?

£10 to a donkey sanctuary?

Thanks for the link 8-)

That indeed is one of the better Christmas tunes. TBO, by the time Christmas Day arrives, I'm a bit fed up with most of the Christmas music tracks, because they get played to death. And now it's the same every year. Am I getting too old now?

Converting that to a bleeper tune is gonna take some work. Good luck to anyone who tries :D

If Lee Spoons can cover 'Danger high voltage' by Electric 6 then anything's possible :mrgreen:

Evening Dave,

If you go to the YouTube page and click the share button at the bottom of the page. This gives you a short URL. Just pop this between the YouTube tags.

Indeed you are. That's probably due in part to the fact that this conversion of the song was done using MIDI2AY. You'd probably get better results if someone were to recreate this in Vortex Tracker from scratch.

(small diversion) Speaking of Christmas now might be a good time to start thinking about submissions for your Wootmass production.
