i know i haven’t been gigging very much this year. and i could forgive you for thinking i’ve not been doing much on the live music front but you’d be wrong. so very wrong. i don’t want to make you feel bad or anything, it’s just the truth. this is my new guitar hero to […]
winter’s the best but the weather’s been holding back shooting on the agnes kain clip again. i’ve been working on everything that can be done inside out of the way of the falling sky water which luckily includes experimenting with projected backgrounds – parallels are cropping up between the agnes clip and the cuba is […]
Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Aleks and the Ramps album launch. it was a great night. there’s some footage of the night that i’ll post up when i can. if you’re unfamiliar with the ramps you should go edumacate your self. they’ve got a new clip which is pretty fantastic and […]
late last year i picked up a second hand copy of the playstation2 music software “MTV music generator 2”. i was surprised by a few of the quirks i discovered, most importantly it’s ability to sample with a singstar mic(!). couple this with it’s nifty little sample editor that lets you trim, reverse, filter etc. and it’s stepped up to play a significant role in the recording of my next album. so i thought i’d tell you, the intertron, all about it and it’s glorious quirkiness.
so apparently this game had a usb sampling dongle you could buy to plug in your diskman or walkman or horse or what ever we were using back then. it was basically a usb audio interface for your playstation, which it’s self is pretty cool, but these things would be tricky to find now’days. lucky for us, the software confuses the singstar mic dongle for the usb sampler which turns your playstation into a sampler sequencer… and a pretty capable one at that.
greetings and welcome to the year 2009. incase you were unaware, the year actually begins on the first of febuary. don’t worry, it’s a common mistake. i don’t think any less of you. recording’s continuing and the scaffolding of an album is well and truly in place. progress was halted briefly by a crippling […]
long time no post. yes, my internet presence has been slightly neglected. apologies. but i have much to report. recording! recording! recording! after the string of gigs last october, i’ve a veritable bounty of tunes and beats and, at this point in time, i am committing them to binary. you could almost say i’m recording […]
