The past 1 1/2 years I've been building a virtual band in my home studio. My goal is to put out a cd (or simply market the music over the web..) using nothing but virtual instruments. The only "real" instrument will be my voice. The hardest thing to make sound "real" has been electric guitars. I'm finally at a point where the "band" sounds realistic enough to fool the average listener, probably won't fool any real musicians ofcourse. My music is pretty straight forward stuff, so it doesn't require Van Halen like guitar riffs. But lately, people that have heard some demos of my music have no idea it's not a real band, and THAT is a blast to say the least.
My "band" mates are:
Roland XV 3080, JV 1010
I have been trying to find other musicians attempting something similar to compare to but I havn't had any luck yet. Sure, there are alot of dance /techno music that is all virtual but they don't really sound like a band either.
