Air Time

7

  If you’re reading this blog, then you already know how much I enjoy making music on portable devices. So it’s no surprise that I am one of those who was very interested in the iPad Air that was just released. Prior to it’s announcement, I had been giving serious thought to possibly downsizing to an iPad Retina when they …

Veloant – New Downtempo Track

2

Veloant Well, adventures in music making on the iPad have been ongoing, and here is the latest result of that work, my new downtempo track called “Veloant”. I’ve had a couple people ask me about my process for writing songs on just the iPad, so I figured this a good chance to go into the details a little more.  The …

Odds and Ends

2

Well, as I mentioned when I released my last song “TH1”, I’ve been spending a lot of time making music on the iPad the last few weeks.  Not just messing around and coming up with interesting sounds or grooves, but making serious music.  I figure if something is interesting enough to keep me working in a particular way for more …

TH1 – New Track

4

Tarekith – TH1 Over the last few weeks I’ve had a bit of a turnaround when it comes to making music on portable devices (iPhone, iPad, etc).  While I’ve always been a fan of making music on the go, over the years I realized I was far more productive if I just focused on coming up with simple ideas and …

Get On The Bus (or not)

I’ve written this article 3 times so far, so I’m really hoping this is the one I keep. Wait, wait, I should probably back up a little first. For starters, sorry that it’s been so long since I had time to post something new to the blog.  I’ve had a lot of ideas for articles, but the studio has been …

Recording Audio from iKaossilator to the Octatrack

2

A couple weeks back I talked about how I’ve been using iOS groovebox-style apps to come up with new song ideas while out and about, and then transfer those to the Elektron Octatrack once I’m back in the studio.  Had a few people ask me how I go about doing this, so I created a quick overview showing how I record …

Pocket Grooves

I’ve covered in past articles how much I like using portable devices to make music on the go.  From the early days of things like Bhajis Loops on a Palm TX, to more modern apps on the iPhone and iPad, I’ve found it really fun to get out of the studio and still be able work on music ideas. Even …

The iOS DJ?

3

Ever since the iPad was first released, I’ve been intrigued about using it for DJing. Light, portable, decent storage, and more than enough power for basic DJing. Plus, for your average DJ, more than enough screen space for controls to handle mixing two tracks. Of course you can also use one of the many iPad DJ controllers coming out now …

Festival Season

Well, summer’s here and that means the start of the festival season here in the US.  Lots of cool outdoor weekend long parties here in the Pacific Northwest, and once again I got asked to perform at Photosynthesis Festival.  This year I’ll be doing two sets it looks like, a downtempo/midtempo set in the H’art tent again, and a more …
