To be a muso you’ve kinda gotta think of yourself like a superhero: everyone has their own special power
holy snappin duckshit just remembered the chords for FUNK….hells yeah can now record new version YEWWWWWWWWWWWW!
Midnight shines on the world today…oh, it’s going to take more than a “feeling” for light to shine our way…it’s time for us to pay…
Sometimes (actually, MOST of the time) I write pretty amazing stuff when I have limited gear. Staying at the in-laws this week for a break and have the LPK25. Period. That’s it! Just wrote a pretty cool track for the Ender Xmas compilation this year.
Learnt something new today (thanks Thavius Beck!…actually have a look at previous vid I posted on him giving some advice on how to use controllers as instruments…something I’m increasingly interested/believe in). Anyhoo….I recorded a pedal bass, then melodies, then chords, and basically routed other synths through those channels and added MIDI effects on top of them!
Also learnt how to invert your midi notes (select midi notes->rightclick->stretch midi notes->move right marker left and left marker right).
Just need to add some sounds to fill out and voila!
I am widely going to view this year as the best of times and the worst of times. If the saying “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time” is true, I feel like I have half digested the zoo and the lion is clawing at my jugular, refusing to go down. Self-startups are the same dichotomy of exhilarating and terrifying. There’s nothing sexy about putting your balls on the line, being financially tight, believing in an idea that you think not only has merit, but real moxy damnit! It’s the nervous tension and excitement of this plus the other things you have to do in life that make me sick to my stomach. Remember when you were in high school? Life was pretty good if you were in the stock standard nuclear family…you could concentrate singularly on whatever you wanted to do, because all of the necessities were pretty much taken care of for you. Sometimes, it’s hard to maintain a positive demeanour and I just want to punch life in the face. And most times, I marvel at how amazing this world is, with all its love, relationships and beautiful interactions. I know that we will look by this next year with awe and think, “How the bloody hell did we even do that?!”. But sometimes, just a little, I need to RUN!!!!
