Hey you all,

My name is Dennis (but you can all call me Denny) and I am from the Netherlands.
I started to play guitar when I was 6 years old (now I am 34), and I did a lot of things in music.
Since a few years I am building guitars for a hobby, and my collection is 23 guitars big now.
http://www.xs4all.nl/~jem777/assets/images/DSC03754.JPG

Over the years, I was always recording on the traditional way with cassette tapes, and later on the Digital Yamaha MD8 8 track midi-data disks recorder.
I never liked to record my music on the PC, until a friend showed me some software pack that where really good in there sound.

So for about 6 month now, I am recording on my pc.
Still the guitar is my main instrument, and I use the software to build my backing tracks.

I am a big fan of Japanese music like Ayumi Hamasaki and Aya Ueto.
And I was looking on Google for some software that could help me to create that type of music.
From there I found the East West Quantum Leap RA (rare instruments) and I listened to some demos from the website, which was really mind blowing.
The Koto is my favorite instrument from this packet.

Now I own the East west quantum leap Voices of Passion and Gypsy.
And I am really in love with those software packs.
I miss the Asian voices from Japan and china in VoP but still I think itís a very unique software pack.

I am not that good of a keyboard player, but I am working on something new with the help of these packs.
And because of the used-friendly interface itís really easy to build a nice song.

So people of East West quantum leap; keep up the good work.
And I am looking forward to your future software packs!

Warm regards,
Denny www.ghostonastring.nl

Here is are some pictures of my music room (String Studio).
I did some painting last week, and I made a 50x70 canvas print out of the Voices of Passion wallpaper, which looks great on my wall.

I hope to get the Colossus one also on my wall.
So dropped another post at the form, asking if there is a Desktop wallpaper for this.
Or maybe some one can scan the box cover for me.
:)

Anyway, I am still working on the design of the rest of the room, because it's a bit empty now.

Hi Denny, welcome!

Wow cool photos! :)

Great that you've found out much interest in computer music. I also used to be only instrument player, until I discovered that making music on computer opens new wonderful possibilities.
