32 bit PCM signed WAV files Sampling Rate: 48kHz Bitrate: 3072 kb/s MTR

     I have WAV files encoded from the original WAV files I obtained when I was recording A Cup of Cold Water in my Studio at Resch Engineering, Inc. in Lincoln, NE during the Fall of 1998.  I would like to Share them with anyone who is interested in hearing my Tracks with Astonishing Clarity which are not Available for Download either on TCS or on my Bandcamp site.  Richard claims that the iTune app can handle this file type.  If you already have the iTune app for your operating system, or are interested in Downloading another Free app like Goldwave which runs on Windows natively, or on OSX with the help of a ShareWare app that you can also Download for Free on the Web (Google: Goldwave for MACImportant Note: You must be registered as a member of Top Catholic Songs to perform this next Procedure.  Click on the following Bitlink: bit.ly/MTRuserTCS and send me a private message containing your First & Last names and your Microsoft Account Email address (if you don't have a Microsoft Account you must obtain one to be able to Login to SharePoint).  I will then arrange for you to be Emailed an Invitation to Login using your Microsoft Account from my ReschEngineeringInc.SharePoint site for you to be a Visitor on my site with Read-only Download privileges so that you can Download any or all of my 13 Tracks with the above mentioned features by Right-Clicking the Sound File and choosing Download.  I offer you this opportunity because I am somewhat of an Audiophile who is Turned-on by the sound of Music as good as it sounded to me when I was recording it.  I am including with this Post a PDF of the Info & Lyrics to A Cup of Cold Water so that you will have something to read while you are Downloading files which have a size of around 100 MBytes each.  MTR

A Home Run Tweet MTR

This is an example of what I call a Home Run Tweet.  It has Four distinctive purposes:

  1. It Promotes TCS and Invites guests of mine to Explore
  2. It Promotes my Personal Web Site: bit.ly/MTRsPlace
  3. It Promotes my Personal Blog: bit.ly/MTRsBlog
  4. It Promotes my Album A Cup of Cold Water bit.ly/MTRsAlbum

It also shows how Powerful Twitter is as a Tool.  Think about it: Getting a Twitter Account is as easy as Creating an Account on Top Catholic Songs.  And it puts you in contact with about 250 million people who you can spread the Gospel Message to.  MTR

A Promotional Tweet. MTR

Another new Tweet MTR

A New Tweet MTR

A Little Experiment MTR

  1. It's time for a little experiment in making my Info & Lyrics to A Cup of Cold Water more accessible to the average Follower on Twitter.  It's also time to make my Biography more accessible.  I'm going to attach two PDF files to this Blog Post and see how it looks.
  2. Looks pretty good.  I think I'll quit while I'm ahead.
  3. More Later . . . MTR

And so it Begins MTR

  1. So many things to do when joining a new site.  Since I promote my Album, A Cup of Cold Water mainly on Twitter the first order of business is to design a new Bitlink to use in my Promotional Tweets to point to TopCatholicSongs.com.  I think I'll use: bit.ly/MTRonTopCathSongs for a starter.  It's a little long and might get truncated in the Tweet, but it gets the message across.
  2. Next I'll post it on bit.ly/MTRsPlace with an under construction message beside it.  This is my Personal Website for all things MTR.
  3. I stayed up all last night Re-Engineering my .wav files for the Album on Bandcamp.  There were some serious flaws on the old set I uploaded in November when I started that site.  Now that it's the best I can make it, the Album is ready to be Embedded in this site.  I used some software I Downloaded on the 'Net with a try-before-you-lease option, it's called "GoldWave".  You can Google for it.  The lease is only $15/year with free updates.  It's a very full-featured software suite of wave editing tools.  I highly recommend it.
  4. Well next I have to go upload a small correction to one of the tracks.  My vocal was being drowned out by my GR-9 Guitar Synthesizer sound, so I had to re-equalize it after I heard it on Bandcamp to make the vocal stand out by a few dB's.
  5. More later . . . MTR

New Christian Children's CD

Dear Friends,

Recently, I released a new Christian Children’s CD called “Jesus, I Love You.”

The purpose of this CD is to help little ones learn about the Lord and to teach them songs that will praise Him. It is my small way of helping to evangelize the next generation. The CD includes 6 songs I wrote and 6 instrumentals of the songs so that children can sing along to the songs in a concert or presentation as a class or children’s choir. The lyrics can be downloaded from my website.

Visit the following CDBaby link to hear the song sample of all of the songs.

Or visit my website at http://www.margobsmith.com/music for song samples and to download lyrics.

Thank you!

Love in Christ,

Margo 

Achieving goals in music sharing

It is too bad how our best ideas get limited by technology, time, resources and talent.  

Limited by technology – because I can visualize a vibrant music sharing and collaboration site but can't quite design it myself. At least not until I enhance my skills with WordPress or Drupal.

Limited by time – because I have  Read Full Story >>>

The Everlasting by Steiner, Anselm, Schletty

MP3 Music Playlist: 
The Everlasting

God is shrouded in history, in mystery.
Prior knowledge infuses me, confuses me.

[refrain]
The Everlasting ever casting
mystic shapes on humanscapes.
Love poured down on every frown.
Take me to a place of wonder,
free of all disgrace and blunder,
where the truth is in the here and now.

Sundogs dancing, blinding youth, refracting truth.
Search for pathways to heaven's door, to evermore.

[refrain]

You cannot believe how deep I've dug,
how high I've climbed to catch the waves
of timeless droning,
present, past and future owning.

All of our senses, hard tempest rain, 
deep needle pain. When will it end?
All our senses!

Witness freedom.
A Spirit grows. A Mother knows.
God holds you so tenderly, eternally.

Music (c)2007 Hendrik Steiner and Karl Anselm. Lyrics (c)2007 Richard C. Schletty.
