Fundraiser for AE-10 electronic sax for my music

£45 of £600 goal

Raised by 2 people in 1 month

Hiya!

I have made this in the hope of raising £600 to buy a Roland AE-10 electronic sax .

Basically since I got arthritis in 2015, practising the real sax has become a bit tough. My aim is to get one of these new electronic saxes for my studio recordings and for future live shows , as they’re easier for me to play and more sonically flexible. I love my sax but often if I play it, whatever song I’m making sounds more jazz. With the Bluetooth MIDI outs on the AE-10, I can transform the sound into anything I like - from an ambient pad, to a kind of Blade Runner-style synth lead.

l am optimistic that it would bring me closer to capturing the melodic approach I’ve developed on the sax and I have a lot of productions that really just lack an organic sounding melody, so using my breath to define phrases and vibrato to make them more vocalesque, I can do it in a way that is more intuitive to me than twiddling a joystick on a keyboard.

Please don’t feel obligated to support, I don’t want anyone to go to undue trouble, this is just for fans that feel particularly comfortable with supporting my quest to finish more music and stay creative!

If you're able to donate or just share, it would mean a lot!

This year I am responsibly becoming a Hot Papa and so every yen I make I wish to use to help bring my family more happiness and security. I have a lot of amazing fans and a good reputation among my peers and senpai as a very capable,  very good soundtrack composer.  Next year I wanna maximize my home studio time to have productive sessions that help me complete more music and also hopefully level-up my YouTube so I can reach new fans. 

At at the moment I have a lot of near-finished productions that really just lack a final melody. I have traditionally relied upon synth keyboards, but actually increasingly I find myself disappointed by the lack of intuitive, vocalesque  articulation options that the traditional keyboard allows. With my arthritis as it is, I can’t always play guitar or sax as much as I’d like, so i’d like to vary the instruments I play as much as possible to minimize over-working certain joints.
 
 Thank you for reading and for all my friends and fans for standing by me. I will keep believing in my music and keep trying to improve it and myself

Hiya,

Just to say thank you for the donations so far! I have relaunched the project over at IndieGoGo with the hope it might pick up more steam over there! The 45 pounds I have received is safely in my UK bank account, so hopefully with a bit more support I can hopefully afford an electronic sax around Christmas time. Thanks so much!

Heya! Thanks for your support everyone! It looks unlikely that this campaign is gonna reach 1000 pounds, so I've decided to reduce the goal to 600 in the hope that we might reach it and thus I could buy the Roland AE-10 windsynth. The Oberheim synth will have to wait I think. I've received a few coffees on Ko-fi, so in total we're at about 31 pounds of 600.

Anyway, will give the campaign another bump this week in the hope that it garners some more support!

Thanks to everyone who's shared so far.

Cheers! geo
