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 …

iOS Mastering Apps Comparison

13

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

0

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 …

Confidence

9

Of all the interesting quirks I see in musicians, one of the more frequent is people having no confidence in their own music. You might have seen this too, someone posts their track for others to offer feedback on, and then they proceed to point out everything wrong with it and why they don’t like it. Before anyone even had …
