Garage Sale, Goodbye Maschine Studio

2

Well, I guess at the very least the last thing I will ever need to worry about is where to store all my gear. Kind of hard to stockpile stuff when you barely hang on to it for even a year. Maybe I should back up. I’m selling the Maschine Studio, and likely most of my guitar pedals. Sigh, I …

What’s In A Name?

0

Ah, the joys of trying to find a new artist or DJ name! For many people this is actually a very hard task, as it’s the first time they’ve had to put an identity to their music. Especially when it’s something that might be with you for a very long time if your music is successful. I thought I’d give …

Maschine Studio Review

11

In some ways it feels like ages since I last gave NI’s Maschine MKI a try, but it’s been something I’ve been watching mature ever since. I loved the sounds, and the hardware integration felt pretty complete, if a bit long-winded in some cases. At the time though (pre-Maschine v1.5?), there were still too many things you needed to revert …

The Desk Job

6

Every once in awhile I get an idea in my head that I later come to regret, even if just a little bit.  Last year I bought a really nice desk for the studio, one that had the ability to be used sitting or standing as I wanted.  At the time, I was a little concerned that it might be …

As a full-time mastering engineer who likes to make music on an iPad in my spare time, it’s no surprise I have an interest in the recent flux of mastering related iOS apps coming out these days. Add to that how many people I see on various forums lately asking which of the options is better, and I thought it …

Wind Swept – New Tarekith Track

0

Wind Swept <- Right Click to Download A lot of my recent work has been shorter songs with weird sounds, abrupt changes in the song structure, and a bit more “out there” overall.  So for this one I wanted to create a more flowing, almost trance-like song that drifted along a bit more serenely. The basis for this song was an …

Your Masters Matter

As usually happens, it all started with a crazy idea. For a while now I had been considering changing all of my copies of the tracks I had written to AIF files, instead of wav files like I had been using for…. well, ever.  The main driver was that I wanted a better way to make sure all the graphics …

Ear Career

0

(your blog author was already hooked on music as a baby) By far, the question I get asked the most often is “how do I get that professional sound in my tracks?”  It’s interesting, because while I definitely know exactly what people are referring to, and remember wondering the same thing with my own tracks at one time, and I …

Pedal Power

Whew, it feels like it’s been forever, but I’m finally done with Physical Therapy from my shoulder surgery.  I also had the cast removed from my broken hand earlier this week, talk about relief!  Feels good being able to hold a guitar properly or play a keyboard, not to mention just being able to type like a normal person again …

The Tarekith Update

6

Well I know it’s been a bit light on blog posts here lately, so I thought I’d do sort of a general update on a what’s been happening here in the studio. I’m in sort of a bit of flux in a lot of areas right now, so my apologies if this comes off as a little rambling! 🙂 For …
