PCs & Me.

The New Birth of Me & PCs Collide. I was extremely depressed before my breaking my back, bordering on suicidal, where I tried to OD on PCP, and woke up blind, and told my Colonel commanding officer to “Fuck Off” through a closed door, cause he was knocking on my door to inspect my dorm …

Well, I went back to the MPC software.

And AKAI needs work with enabling their software. The iLok license manager is a drain on the activation process, I deleted it off my system, and maybe they got offended. I tried to make an account with them, cause of a drum program I bought last year or the year before, and I was refunded …

Music Copyright?

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 Inspired “Smoke On The Water”. I wonder who came up with it first, Ludwig or Ritchie… according to this world, it was Ludwig, but we can learn something else when time is revealed as an illusion. After listening to Beethoven’s Symphony #5, he came up with that riff in the Smoke …

That’s Determinism and Predeterminism in a nutshell, as easy as I can sum it up. You …

Studio One 6… is a dud, at least for me, and my workflow.

It’s not very intuitive, and I’m lost in figuring it out. There are times I’m swimming in circles, they don’t have an obvious export button to export the masters or the export with all the filters and metadata, other DAWs like Reaper, Vegas, and Acid do… they have their flaws too, but they are the …

HYPE Deceives

Marketing Hype Deceives, at it’s whims. I was deceived by my own assumptions of Studio One 6, that Audio files dragged out passed the limit of the audio files, was looping, but I had to make a MIDI pattern first to loop it. There maybe another way to convert it to an audio looping file, …

Back to Studio One 6.

Here’s a Youtube Playlist I made up. This is an advertisement of my interests.  I hate advertisements, which makes me a hypocrite… but it might be in other’s interest too. It covers what you can do with it, it requires an interest bordering on fame and greed, but rationally reasonable in practice, or you’re sucked …

Technical Nightmares

  I guess, I’m an Idiot. It seems the tech industry is a self ordained god, judging others for not connecting to their minds, and scribbling instructions on how to use their software, hardware, and all the third party developers that use their software. I’ve had a nightmare with downloading the extensions with Studio One …

Day 2 I downloaded and installed Studio One 6. Making your own Click Track And I saw this in making my own click track, with certain sounds of drums… it gives it feeling, instead of the bland counting of measures. It’s what I always wanted with a DAW, and I’m sure other DAWs have that …

What does MPC mean?

MPC MIDI Production Center So, the basic language is MIDI, and everything connects through the MIDI language, and it is not very intuitive, it’s like learning a new verbal language, for example French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, etc., it requires tech knowledge and dialects too. It takes another approach to music production, rather than the digital …

We Wait in the Dark

Anna Graceman – Playing Pretend, Speak To Me & Living in Denial

  3 Songs by Anna Graceman This is a dangerous territory to play in, it’s the fantasy world, that gives way to major misunderstandings between people, who don’t face up to reality, and think what goes on in their mind, is reality. No matter what you said or agreed to in their mind, it wasn’t …
