Collect, present and eat: do-it-yourself cheese bouquet


  • - a computer (laptop) with at least 1 GB of RAM,
  • - headphones.

A lot of people in our country love to sing and play music. There is no need to go far for confirmation: the popularity of karaoke bars speaks for itself. But for those who want to try their hand not only in a drunken stupor, bawling "A glass of vodka on the table", but more seriously, especially if this person is endowed with musical ear and some kind of poetic gift, this article can be useful.

I’ll say a few words about myself so that the person reading this material understands that I’m writing it all not from floundering, not from reading a recitative and downloading some rap music from the Internet and decided to send my “creation” to the masses, thinking that it will be interesting to someone. Perhaps this will be interesting for his friends, but it is unlikely to be of interest to someone who distinguishes between “before” and “fa”, has an idea of ​​“major” and “minor”, ​​of elementary musical harmonies.

What is most important is to have a small idea of ​​the musical sizes (the vast majority of songs are written in 4/4 size) and measures, to know at least an elementary beat. You also need to know at least a little note size (whole, half, quarter, eighth, sixteenth).

I’ll say right away: if you want to record a guitar or an electric guitar, it is better to have this instrument available. If the same violins, piano, bass and percussion can be selected from the base of the musical program instruments, then the guitar sounds are very distantly reminiscent of the original sound.

First you need to install a music sequencer on your computer, that is, a program for writing music. The most affordable, in my opinion, FL Studio, it can be downloaded without problems from the Internet, from the same torrents. More professional programs such as Kubais, Sonar, Kontakt, etc. so just do not download. Yes, and to nothing, if you just decided to try your hand at writing music at home. And the requirements of FL Studio are minimal: even on a simple computer with a built-in sound card with a small RAM, you can create some kind of musical sketches.

I repeat, you need to know at least the musical basics: notes, measures, sizes.
But immediately make a reservation: the sound quality in FL Studio is very doubtful. With the help of various adjustments of the built-in mixer, you can enrich them with volume, but still at the “output” the sound leaves much to be desired. Before you start creating, decide what size the melody will be.

In the Kick section, select the first, fifth and ninth elements with the mouse - this will be the beginning of each measure. Then click on the play button and listen to the bit. In the speed box (in the picture above, with a value of 130.00), use the mouse to select the desired value.

I propose to leave the drummers in a separate piece - the “pattern”. Remember that for further editing, it is more convenient for you to make each tool in a separate "pattern". Let's say bass (you can find it by clicking in the list of instruments, which is located on the left in the "Packs" button). This section contains percussion instruments, bass, violins and much more. But if you first discovered FL for yourself, then there is no point in bothering further.

So, in the picture by the window with the speed window (where the value is 130.00) on the right there is another window with the number 1. This will be your first pattern. Use the mouse to change it to 2 and look for the tool you want to select in the “Packs” tab. Then, change the number in the window to "3", "4", etc.

Turn on the fantasy

Before you start making your bouquet, put all the cheese in the refrigerator for about one hour so that it hardens a little. Otherwise, it will be too soft, begin to melt, release fat and may become deformed.

Cheese can be cut in the form of triangles or squares - to whom and as you like. But first, compose your bouquet mentally to understand what the final result will be.

If you are going to use multi-colored cheese, then think about how the colors in the bouquet will be arranged. You can buy green cheese with pesto, orange with chili or blue with lavender, because today there is a huge selection of different cheeses on store shelves with which you can create a vivid composition.

We collect a cheese bouquet

Sliced ​​pieces should not be too small and thin, as they can break during operation. Put each piece of cheese on a wooden skewer, but there is also its own technology.

It is necessary to pierce the cheese slowly, exactly in the middle and not very deep. Otherwise, cracks may form in the product, after a while such cheese will fall apart, and the bouquet will have to be redone.

If gaps have formed between the pieces of cheese in the bouquet, they can be filled with nuts, grapes, and other berries.

The finished bouquet does not need to be put in water - it is better to give and eat it as soon as possible!
