I found more album and artwork things! So let’s just get right to it for this, my second album, and originally published (okay, I burned it myself and printed out all the artwork) as a two album discography for friends and family. I’m willing to bet that all the copies made it to the trashContinue reading “Album: Eclectic Electronica”
While I was traveling to Bangalore for work Chase Bliss dropped the Generation Loss, and unfortunately I missed the pre-order window on Reverb. I tried to check it out the next day, but it was already sold out. I spent the next few days wondering if I really needed this device, or it was goingContinue reading “Chase Bliss Generation Loss First Impressions”
Well… I figured out to mount my old NAS box, and while it is a treasure trove of media, it is also a big, unsorted mess. It’s going to take some time for me to dig through and find albums, artwork, and put it all together. For the moment I think I have settled onContinue reading “Album: Aboriginal Dream”
The patch Old School Cinema started life on the Pocket Operator Tonic. I recorded the hits into the Akai S950 at 10khz, because I was afraid that some of the longer bass notes would exhaust the sample memory, and honestly I didn’t want to be chopping on the S950 for an hour. I was ableContinue reading “Old School Cinema for Akai MPC X/Live”
Today is just a Clean Analogue Bass recorded on the Akai S950. Nothing too special, and I kept the sample size down. The sample range is from C0 through C4 so there is a pretty good range to play with.
Here is my next patch for my MPC X Tape Grand Piano. I started with a multisample Grand Piano sampled into the Akai S950 at C/F note intervals. So samples a bit stretched, but it sounds pleasant enough, and certainly a bit more realistic than the strings a made recently. The patch was again routedContinue reading “Akai S950 Tape Grand Piano for MPC X/Live”
So reality is starting to set in as I try and consider all of the content I have ever created, and where the heck it is. Servers are gone, my network addressable storage (NAS) won’t mount on my computer. I have a bit of a road in front of me to recover my digital lifeContinue reading “Ooooooof”
Hey everybody! Today I spent some time trimming recording in a string sample into the Akai S950. It was about 20 seconds or so long. The idea was to make something that could be pitched up reasonably high and still have a reasonable length to it. Once I completed sampling into the S950, I usedContinue reading “Akai S950 String Program For MPC Live/X”
