Here’s a YouTube video demonstrating the use of the iPad as an MPC style drum pad device / MIDI control surface. This configuration uses a customized TouchOSC drum pad interface, and the iPad pads triggers a Redrum Drum Machine in Record+Reason. Buttons are also assigned for transport control and effect sends. […]
I’m toying with a full mixer control template using the TouchOSC editor. The picture shows a rough concept layout of the SSL EQ section. Tabs are set for the input, dynamics, fx sends, insert, fader/pan, and master section. Here’s another video which uses TouchOSC as fader bank to control the Record Main […]
Preordering an iPad was a no brainer for me. I will admit that I had heard rumors about certain issues which made me a little nervous about being an early adopter, but the fanboy-slash-tech geek in me could not resist. I’ve had a few days to play with apple’s “magical” new device, and […]
This video shows how I have the Reason/Thor MIDI to CV conversion process applied to the moogerfoogers. The MF-107 FreqBox oscillator output is connected directly into the MF-101 Low pass filter. Thor’s key note value, mod wheel, pitch bend, aftertouch, LFO, and envelope generators all modulate the two pedals to create a functional […]
Lately It seems like the only things I purchase from guitar cnter are connectors and jacks. Yesterday I wandered in to get (more) connectors to make some XLR to 1/8″ phone cables which would further my experiments using Reason 4.0 as a control voltage generator with some of my analog synthesizers. Surprisingly, they had […]
The introduction of Volta from Mark of the Unicorn, is especially exciting news for those of us who have held on to our beloved analog gear. Volta is an application/plug-in that sends control voltage signals through MOTU hardware interfaces which can trigger and modulate analog hardware synthesizers and effects. The beauty of this […]
I’ve had my workstation and patchbay up and running for several weeks now, but my friend Goh came over to help me give it a thorough testing. I’ve installed a Universal Audio 2192 Master Audio Interface along with a Dangerous Music D-Box monitor control system. This is my dream audio recording and monitoring rig […]
No not ReWire-ing…The old school type of hard line rewiring. I’m reconfiguring my workstation which seems to have massed a large number of unused power cords and audio lines over the years… not to mention the dust bunnies. It was basically a huge dusty tangled mess under there. I figured I would incorporate […]
I previously had this posted through the soundcloud player, but I started to get a few too many hits for a sample set which seemed to interfere with musical pieces ranked on the system. I’ll leave the file posted on my server for people to grab and tweak.

Ok, before you get all crazy about Reason 4.0 being on the iPhone, this is just just the screenshot from the props website set as my wallpaper background…
After having an iPhone for a week, I have to say that i’m pretty happy with this piece of technology, worthy of the hype. For me, […]
I was tempted to post this on April 1, because it sounds pretty ridiculous. The following post is real - No foolin’, suckah! However, If you’re easily offended by graphic language, please don’t read this entry or follow the links.
ok, you’ve been warned.
Eric Barbour is known for some pretty wild music […]
I finally seen Bryan Kehew and Kevin Ryan’s much anticipated book, Recording The Beatles. It’s the ultimate guide for gear freaks about the legendary recordings at Abbey Road, and goes into great detail about the equipment and engineers and rooms. It’s an amazing wealth of information and dispels many of the prevailing myths […]
