303:: More of Jonas’ patterns are now available for download. Actually, one is a repeat at a different tempo. I’ve also made some 303 program charts to help program and convert ReBirth patterns to the TB. You can also check these out. They are kinda useless unless you actually have a TB-303, but I know a few of you out there might find these handy
Hey Hami, CC needs a mod update, we’ve got a sh*tload of new mods on the server.
LNK:: Check out Pattern Master by Matthias Schill- a cool little WinOS application which gives you a graphic piano roll interface for programming ReBirth RBS patterns. Once you’ve got some cool ones, please submit a few to Project 303

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

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 MP3.com 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 mp3.com 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.

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 :: 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;)

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 illequipped.com 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.
