Apple Cinema Display

Monday, February 28th, 2000

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 […]

News & Journal

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2000

TXT:: I’m starting something new here. This page is going to be a little journal for me to keep track of the stuff I’m doing. Not everything will be ReBirth or Propellerheads related, however, since this web page was founded on ReBirth MODs, that will always be the primary focus. I’m not in the habit […]

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 […]

Native American Song Challenge

Monday, February 21st, 2000

TXT:: Ugh..I’m taking a break to rant a bit…I’ve been trying to mix down this track and slowly facing the fact that Pro Tools rocks. It’s basically a MIDI track I did in Cubase VST with some audio bits, but the problem is that I’m mixing it on a Mackie 3204. Each time I […]

MP3:: I’m such a dumbass! I keep forgetting to post my thanks to T.G.Virus and SpinThis! for the sample production on Archer.
REASON:: I used a sample from the Metallicon+ Mod from the ReBirth CD. This sample was loaded into a sampler module and routed through a Filter effect. The Matrix sequenzer modulated the Filter for […] Domain Name Secured!

I’m happy to say that after 2 years, persistence has paid off. Someone has been squatting on a particular domain name, and their registration with network solutions inc. has expired! I got lucky and registered the domain before it was renewed, so this site will finally be located at
Actually, I might revise this site […]

Monday, February 7th, 2000

MP3:: I’ve been reworking my latest track, Archer, made with REASON. The new mix is a bit different from the current demo MP3 file available on the Propellerheads website. It should be available shortly from my page. Keep an eye out for Archer [Mix 2]

NAMM 2000

Saturday, February 5th, 2000

Reason:: Well I’ve been down in Los Angeles this week for the NAMM convention. This is my first visit to the convention and I’m definitely not disappointed. The thing is HUGE and it’s a gear freaks paradise (or hell). It’s a bit of torture to see so much stuff you really want but can’t afford.
I […]
