In this video, I talk about using the Yamaha DJX MIDI Keyboard as a MIDI Controller for Propellerhead Reason 6.5 music software. I explain why I like using the DJX as a controller and how I have it connected to my PC. I also explain how I setup two different NNXT Advanced Sampler devices in Reason to allow me to compose piano parts separately. Since I am not a pianist, I have to create my "left-hand" parts (Chords) and "right-hand" parts (Melodies) separately and I use two different devices to manipulate the sounds of each part independently.

In this video, I'm just improvising (piano) over the finished track.
"Even Still" is a smooth groove that I put together after reflecting on my life with my wife over the last 20 years. I gave this track the title because I was inspired by the thought that although 20 years have passed for us as a couple, our love continues to get better.
This is one of the tracks on my Moody instruMental Music collection "Moody Grooves" and you can download it at TaurusBeats.com.
No samples or sample flips in this one. You get to watch me put together the piano parts and perform most of the rest of the instrumentation.
I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. I'm showing you how to make Moody instruMental Music using Reason as I create another one of my Moody instruMental Music creations - "Even Still".
Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud etc. and I'll see you there! =)
Thank you for your support.
Grace and Peace!

"All I Am (Human)" experimental piano music beat remix - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James
All I Am (Human) is an experimental piano music beat remix.
This is another piano music beat,
Made for Dreamer Moody instruMental Music Collection

This is one of my remakes from the 80s. The music group Human League had the popular song Human that I enjoyed listening to back then - and now. This is my interpolation of the song with me on the piano (and everything else, of course).
Human is All I Am.
I finally made it to my new home in Alexandria, Virginia, after taking the scenic route through South Carolina and North Carolina to visit family. I just moved into my new home and setup my computer and internet connection. Enough time to post this message and work on a couple of website enhancements.
The home studio is not up and running just yet, but it will be by the weekend - probably after I go see all of my old classmates at my 20-year high school reunion.
Yeah, I'm that old, but blessed to look young.
My apologies to all of you who have contacted me over the last couple of days. I was swamped with coordinating the delivery of my household goods and the initial setup of cable, internet, phone, gas, electric, etc.
Okay, Diary is a break from the concept of this collection because it does not have the same beat or beat structure as other songs in the collection. This is one of those "spur-of-the-moment" tracks that I created after hearing the original by Alicia Keys. I just wanted to see if I could lay some of my own keys on the track.
Hey, if I don't do these experimental piano beats, I'll never find out what I can do.
Make Beats with Reason 6: Country Music Guitar Sample Flip - Really???
I get inspiration for my Moody instruMental Music from many places. Sometimes, the most basic thing triggers the creativity in me. This video series shows another example of my flipping a sample - this time, a country music guitar..
I was listening to some music today while developing a website and I heard a country-music-style guitar. inspired, I immediately powered up Reason 6 and started creating this Moody instruMental Music creation.
