Thanks for that, matto. Wish you wrote all the application stuff for Ascap. It would make my life absolutely swell! Martin, another well deserved success. Congratulations!

Hurray Martin!Your work is fantastic so I'm not surprised to learn that you're starting to see more rewards flowing your way. I really appreciate your participation in this forum especially because you're a fabulous guitar player and also because you are very kind & informative in all of your posts. -Allen

thanks for all the nice comments.to answer the questions:@jaxsn: congrats on your forwards & all the best. just remember that - at least in my experience - it usually takes a bunch of forwards to "hit" something, so if I was you I just would move on and do the next track.... submit... and do the next track...;)@ matto: yeah you're right, to clear it: I'm the artist AND writer of the tracks, so what I meant was: I get the money from the performance org. too, it just will take it's own sweet time.@marcblack30: matto will correct me if I'm wrong;) the 4 p's: professionalism, persistance, productivity, patience@dj deweese: latin tracks, here's an example:http://martytone.com/songbase/streamit. ... 14@allends: thanks! btw: I'm using the guitar-to-midi converter now quite regularly, I just recorded a church organ-part for a movie with it. for me as a guitarist it's a great & fast way to access all those midi-sounds that used to be only playable by keyboard.cheers,martin

It would be great to have a listing of tracks where you used this recording technique. I would like to hear your results.-Allen
