TXT:: Last Tuesday, I went over to 111 Minna St. Gallery in SF to check out Techture’s Laptop Performance with Reason. I dropped by a month ago to check things out, but I had to leave early and missed the show. The extended happy hour lounge performances occur every 2nd Tuesday, so I promised to […]
TXT:: So, I went to the Squarepusher show last night at the Avalon Ballroom in SF. I was somewhat hesitant about going after hearing mixed opinions about live squarepusher performances, but I’m really glad I did. I arrived a bit way too early and ran into Rich and Carson, who helped with the sample production […]
TXT:: I dropped by 111 Minna Gallery to meet up with Blake, a.k.a. Techture, a fellow Reason user who puts on a live show and DJ sets every 2nd Tuesday. Coincidentally, I ran into an old internet aquaintance, Ben who is a close friend of Emmet, the man who hosts this website. Yes, the world […]
TXT:: I’ve been commissioned to work on a new project, so my current projects will probably held back for another month. I’ll probably take a break and relax by finishing up the ReFills. I’m working on another beginners guide to Reason. I’ll post up more details when they come available.
I received an email today from […]
Reason:: I’ve added a few files to the Reason Archive as well as the Subscriber’s Archive. First is the revised version of Archer. This one has a few of the loops removed because of copyright issues with the publishers. The other is a little experiment with the subtractor. I basically recorded all the knob tweaks […]
Well, I’ve been busted… I received an E-mail from Eric Persing at Spectrasonics asking me to remove the Archer24Public.RPS file from the web because using a ReCycle’d drum loop from the Retro Funk sample Library is a violation of their licensing policy. I mentioned this might occur in the last newsletter, and it took all […]
MP3:: The first Visions Remix is in from Zapruder Red. He did a fantastic job tweaking out the samples in to a cool Trip-Hop groove. You can take a listen to the track on the Visions Remix Page.
TXT:: I’ve been engrossed in this new track that i’ve been creating in PT5.0 - Having MIDI incorporated […]
MP3:: I set up an MP3.com radio station which plays selections from the various projects I’ve worked on over the past decade. Check out Peff - The Definitive Playlist . It’s strange to look at this list of songs because they vary from one end of the musical spectrum to the other. I’m starting to […]
MP3:: As I mention below, I’m opening up the samples from Visions for remix. I have uploaded the 16bit 44.1KHz .WAV format files in ZIP archives. For you people on smokin fat pipes, there is a single 20meg Stuffit Archive. Everyone is welcome to download the files, but if you use them for a release, […]

TXT:: PC to Mac Conversion project is done! The second Powerprint USB adapter and PrinterSwitch work like a charm. So the office automation set up is working without a hitch. A click of a button in Filemaker Pro automatically selects the appropriate printer and prints out the documents. Technology is a wonderful thing […]
MP3:: This seems as good of a time as any to introduce some new tracks I’ve been working on. This stuff is not ReBirth related and can be found at www.mp3.com/cardioid It’s mostly MPC-3000, TB-303, various Analogue, and Pro Tools stuff.
Xylox has included one of the Cardioid Tracks on his mp3 radio station playlist where […]
Rather than lose sleep over that damn mix, I’ve decided to track and export all the audio on Visions over to Pro Tools™. So I didn’t make it to bed (actually the couch) until 3:00am, but it was all worthwhile. Even the preliminary mixes are sounding 200% better than mixing through a Mackie. No offense […]
