TXT:: I pulled a classic mac-nubie maneuver yesterday. On my way home from meeting MB in SF, I stopped at Fry’s to pick up my mother a Birthday gift, an Apple Cinema Display (15″ LCD). Her old Apple 15″ monitor is shot, and she needs a new one. So I asked the sales people if it’s backwards compatible with the standard Apple 15 pin D- connector. They acknowledged that it would work, but they were wrong. The new Apple Studio Displays have a Digital Video Interface connector, not the standard VGA analog connector. Mom liked the monitor so much, she wanted me to get her the computer that works with it. So I just finished installing all the software on her new Apple G4/400. Talk about a birthday present - I don’t even have a G4 yet! It’s overkill for a G4 to run Quicken, Excel, and Solitaire. Say if anyone knows of a good solitaire game for MacOS, please e-mail me.
Hey JC: You need a G4 set up like my mom’s! See how little desktop space it takes up!
RBS:: After I finished that MIDI project, I figured it was time to hit ReBirth again. I’ve started up a new track for the RedStripe Mod. Jackplug seems to like this track a lot. It definitely has more of a Drum ‘n Bass feel than the demo I made for the mod. There’s no name for the track yet, it’s just a bunch of patterns. RSDNB03.zip
MP3:: The Pro Tools mix of Visions has been sent off to MP3.com, but I’m really sick of the track. After all that tweaking it lost it’s groove. This stuff happens.
RBM:: Yeah believe it or not. I think I’m working on a new one. It’s been too long. I started making some noises on the Buchla 200 modular. Some sequential noise stuff filtered, distorted, spring reverbed etc. I started dropping some of these samples into an RBM and came up with some cool patterns. Eventually I’ll finish it up
