Welcome to the Music and Sound forum on GD.net. Pull up a chair, listen to some tracks by your peers and discuss all things music and sound. We're happy to have you. Please check out the FAQ link for some basic (and mostly common sense) approaches used in this forum. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
