Finding Time For Music

6

I’ve covered in the past how to balance trying to make music while having an extremely busy life that doesn’t leave you much free time.  But lately it seems to be something that I’ve been seeing a lot of people ask about again, so I think it’s time to revisit some ideas you can use to improve that balance.   …

Soft to Hard?

2

Since I started talking about my recent work with the Octatrack, I’ve been getting a lot of people asking me about making the switch from software based audio production and performance, to a hardware based set up. In some ways I’m probably not the best person to ask, since I was the opposite and came from a hardware background and …

As I’ve mentioned in the past, one of the great advantages of working on larger …

Festival Season

Well, summer’s coming up fast and I’ve already got a couple gigs lined up that I’m really excited about this year.  I’ve been asked to play Photosynthesis again, this times perhaps doing two different sets over the weekend.  As readers of my blog will know, I’ve recently switched to using the Elektron Octatrack in place of a laptop and the APC40 …

lpTouch iPad app

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know about a pretty cool iOS app I have been using lately. I know I don’t normally post recommendations for apps in the blog, but this one I found especially useful.  If you have Logic and an iPad, this is a really easy to use Control Surface app that lets you control Logic …
