a collection of messages from an old, tired traveller;
these are melodies both old and new,
woven together to tell their pieces of a greater story,
and to aid others on their journeys.

shared in humble service,
and with much love.

practice, you'll get better at it. a few main things to pay attention to are compression, eq, reverb, and stereo imaging.

If you get "too good" at the "brain to instrument" process your music will show that soulless, overpolished feel, but if you don't have enough experience at getting the sound you are looking for, you'll miss the mark.

i can definitely agree and relate to that line of thought.

yes. absolutely yes.

no, but there are still a definite series of sequential steps you can take in the right direction, depending upon what it is you want to do. it's usually not too difficult to figure out what needs to be done next, whether it comes down to compositional changes or changes in the production process itself...

OHCing is definitely one tongue albeit a very creatively challenging and training one.

Anyone finding that there's a divide between your dream masterpiece and the musickal stuff you can actually muster?

i always wanted to be this beepy Art Bears type thing with some real singing but I tend to cop out into arcane noodling in the end. not many of the songs I've made really represent zer final vision as it stands.


then finish your songs, man. it's a process, just gotta do it.

Selling an Akai APC20. acquired this a few weeks ago in a licensing deal, but i've upgraded to Livid's OHM so this became unnecessary. I've used it twice for a total of about 40 minutes. Everything works. All original box/manual/cd/cables/power/everything. Pretty much straight out of the box.

Asking $125; if you're in the USA I'll pay the shipping out of that.

Email/PM me, mention this posting; I'll get back to ya pretty quick.


Cheers heart

edit: price drop.
