Elektron ECC-2 Review

0

Not the most exciting review, but I’ve had a few people asking me about the ECC-2 bag since I got mine.  Figured I’d do a quick video so people can see what it looks like, how big it is, and what the storage is like.  I also talk about a few things I wish were different about it as well.

Chillography 5

Well, the Photosynthesis 5 festival is over and done with, and I have to say I’m really pleased with how my set went.  After all the work I put into prepping a brand new hardware-based live set, it’s a good feeling knowing it all worked well and that people really seemed to enjoy it.  Probably my best live set so …

Preparing For Gigs

6

Since my last post about nerves before a gig, I’ve had a lot of people asking what I do to prepare for my live shows.  I’ve covered some of this in the past in my Playing Live Guide, but it’s worth covering the basics again.

Nerves

4

Less than a week away from my next big gig, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t feeling some butterflies, just like I always do.  Which is really weird for me when I think about it, because I’ve been playing live electronic music in front of people since just about when I started writing music in the …

Becoming A Better Musician

4

One of the most popular questions people ask me is “How can I become a better musician (or producer)?”  People ask for recommendations on tutorials they can watch, or articles they can read, or they want me to listen to their tracks and tell them what I think they need to work on. Here’s the thing though, none of that …

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 …
