Thanks to everyone who works on the free/open software that allows me to create this stuff. Great to see so many other people on this forum doing the same.

Some really interesting sounds here!
This one especially

Thanks @samthursfield

Since this post I’ve found some help on how to credit the plugin makers for plugins used to make those interesting sounds - right here in the forum:

I’m tight for time right now, but over the weekend I’ll add the plugin credits to the tracks on bandcamp.
Got one done so far:

Just released a new track called Walk on Bandcamp.

Made with free and open source tools -with Ardour at the heart of it.
Licensed for re-use. Free to listen/own.

This one is a simple song that combines voice, acoustic guitar, and synth.
It’s a reflection on appreciating what you have while you have it.
It’s also a reminder that the changes that are coming may not lead you to what you really want, and that it’s always later than you think.

Comments/feedback welcome.

Great, i like the guitar sound, synth and the mix (vocals). Love the mood of the song, a little bit of Alexi murdoch or Nick drake style… (for the song Walk)
Good job, love it…


Thank you for the feedback and kind words.

Wasn’t aware of Alexi Murdoch before, so I’m checking him out - he’s good!
