303:: The first user submission is now available! Thanks Jonas for the contribution to the project.

Birth: Hardware ReBirth

November 13th, 1999

JPG:: I’ve added some images from the workbench. Check out “Birth” my hardware equivalent of ReBirth — sort of. It consists of Roland’s TR-909, TR-808, TB-303, and MC-202. All of the units are synchronized via Roland Proprietary DIN Sync cables. A Sherman Filterbank acts as a PCF and Distortion Unit, and I have a Dedicated Digital Delay box and discrete compressor (not in the picture). This sucker is a lot of fun to use, but it’s quite different from ReBirth. It’s a lot more tedious to use, and saving songs is not as convenient. It does sound super phat :-)

303:: In honor of Birth I’m starting up something new called Project 303. This will be a collaboration where ReBirth Users can contribute an RBS file with a single 303 pattern, and I will transcribe the pattern to my Roland TB-303 and digitize a sample. I will make the samples and RBS files available for download free for public use. I have already started the archive with a couple of ZIP archives for people to check out!

MP3:: New Track up! This is a little experiment using a midi file from J.S. Bach’s Tocatta and Fugue in D minor (TBWE 565). Available now from my page. Check the Song Story feature about how the track was assembled.

whew…long time no update!

RBM:: I’ve been busy on a collaborative project which will be released in the near future (estimated time of release: about a month). If you want to hear a preview of this project, check out my latest track, e-priori.

MP3:: This track is currently available for download off my page. It was created entirely in ReBirth and uses the double time 32 steps per measure technique. It’s a mellow little track grooving at 338 bpm.

LNK:: Several People have sent me links to their ReBirth Related web sites which I’ve added to my list of links. There are some cool tracks out there.

Remix & Stuff

August 25th, 1999

MP3:: I have a couple of new tracks available. Keep Going [Funky House Mix] which has been online for awhile and Rays of Dawn [eclipse mix], a remix of an original song by Tokyo3

RBM:: Well, Hami has fallen off the face of the planet, so the final touches for the graphics of Dejenerate Oxydized Edition are on hold. You can get a preview of the new knobs in the RBM listing, and I will probably put a beta test version of the mod on Computer Controlled’s ftp server soon. Check back here for more information.

There is another very interesting project in the works right now…and I’m not talking about project X either ;-)

MOV:: The animations are off-line temporarily while the server is upgraded this week.

O3 Games

May 16th, 1999

O3 Games :: I’m not really a game player, but a friend in Sweden (also a fellow rebirther) who produces sound for O3 Games asked me to do some voice over samples for their new game, OUTFORCE. The developers are in Los Angeles this week for the E3 convention and are showcasing the new game. So if you happen to be there, please visit their booth and say hello;)

ReBirth:: 2 Years Old! - Mod & Song news

May 15th, 1999

Happy 2nd Birthday to ReBirth RB-338. Thanks to Steinberg and Propellerheads for creating this sensational Software!

RBM :: Sync is sorta done, but there’s no space to load it on Computer Controlled for a trial run. If you’re curious and want to get an idea of what it sounds like, download this remix of Peter Gabriel’s “Love to be Loved” that I made with some of the sync samples (especially the gritty break near the end of the track). The remix is pretty rough and was done completely in ReBirth.

MP3 :: ReBirth ReMix Love to Be Loved. Since this remix is not sanctioned by the artist, it wont be online for very long. I’m violating more than a few © laws in doing this. I might make the RBM available, but probably not. You can also hear the track on the shoutcast server.

Quicktime™ :: Cool new trick for you web developers out there. The start loop on my site is actually a variable bit rate mpeg layer III audio file saved in Quicktime Pro Hinted Movie format. Sounds better than ever. This requires Quicktime 4 browser plug in order to hear the loop.

Succubus by Stuart Diamond

May 6th, 1999

MP3 :: I’ve got several new tracks available on now. Some are Created exclusively in ReBirth, but they were mastered with a some final compression. Can of VIBE mp3 version sounds really impressive for a rebirth only track. Also I’ve uploaded one of my personal favorite works, Succubus. This track was composed by a friend of mine in New York, Stuart Diamond, and we produced it at my home studio with another friend, Karen Bentley (violin). It’s pretty amazing what you can still do with a Proteus I module. The Transparent Darkness edit came out quite nicely too. I shortened it quite a bit and added some cool phasing effects. The King’s Jam is a last minute title I came up with for this track created using Logic Audio (actually the track is MIDI only with some sampled loops mixed in).

RBM :: Sync is coming along. I’m in the middle of finishing up a new gui for it. I’m still trying to get back into the swing of mod making in between all these other projects. :: rennacs (previously known as scaNNer, maker of the wobble mod) has started up a new site, and has somehow got me into moderating a technical discussion board for hardware and stuff. The site also has a shoutcast server for WinAMP (no MacOS version available)

JPG :: Check out my new toy:) I’m editing the website from this baby right now.
