Temples To Telescopes

Temples To Telescopes <- Right Click To Save. This track started one night after I had just finished up jamming on my acoustic guitar using my Timeline Delay pedal. I was putting things away, and realized I had left the feedback cranked up, and the electrical noise from the guitar pickups started to feedback making this cool sound wash. I fired …

Hidden Natures

Hidden Natures <- Right click to play or download. “Hidden Natures” is one of the first tracks I’ve written in awhile using Ableton Live almost exclusively. For whatever reason I was feeling guilty seeing my Push sitting in the studio unused lately, and when I sat down to play with it again… this song happened. That’s one of the things I …

 Tarekith – DDP <- Right Click to Save or Play. Well it feels like ages since I managed to finish up a track, though looking back that’s probably because it has been a few months since I have!   This track was something I started in Maschine Studio, using that to do all of the beats and most of the synths. …

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 …

This is something I’ve had to keep under wraps for quite awhile now, and it’s something I’ve been pretty excited about.  A long time ago, in a galaxy…  well actually just a long time ago, I was contacted by DJ Vespers about a project he was working on.  His plan was to create a way of providing world-class Ableton training …

Play It Right The First Time

2

It’s been a long time since I actively had to study intensely for something, so it’s been a pretty interesting experience as I set out to do just that in order to improve my guitar playing. I’ve always been someone on the look out for new ideas and tricks to try in audio production, but there’s a big difference between …

Decibel Festival Mastering Session

0

This past weekend Dubspot asked me to host a Q&A session on mastering as part of the Decibel Festival conference.  The session went great, there were more people than I expected for it being earlier in the day, and I was able to answer a lot of questions for everyone.  Luckily, all of the conference sessions were video taped, and …
