It’s kind of a funny thing. In my most popular video, “Playing in the Background” (the one with the ugly brown V-neck sweater and crooked keyboard angle that just went over 100,000 views – thanks for that, by the way!) I said that it’s not about showing people how cool your pad sound is.
The funny part is that a lot of the questions I’ve received since then have to do with incorporating cool pad sounds into keyboard playing!
It is kind of a big deal, I suppose. The right pad sound can set the right emotional foundation for a song and make transitions between songs much easier.
It’s been a while in the making, but my first set of custom pad sounds for MainStage are now available. They sound pretty fabulous, I’d say, so check them out by clicking here.
