Pride on Ego’s Shoulder

I remember Saturday Morning Cartoons When the Angels and Devils were on your Shoulders and Talking to You With THOUGHTS. Prideful egos get blind drunk, egos get high from fame… they are drugs, that effect your egos decision making skills… they alter your ability to make sense of your life. I bought the house on …

DAWs times…

Studio One 6 or Cubase 13 Both FIT My Workflow. Studio One 6 has nice features in getting the tempo, of some audio you produced without a click track, and your tempo was shifting without a click track, and it was done in the early 80’s. I was just jamming with an acoustic rhythms and …

I just bought the Synthesizer V Studio Pro.

Last Night, as an Impulse Buy. I was amazed at it’s properties, and now I want to record my own voice, as one of the voices in it’s singing capabilities. I feel young, all over again… it’s sad, the way the world is now for me, with all the political mayhem going on all over …

Musical Rut.

Dueling With The Tech Dark Side. The DAWs, MPC, Roland, ZenBeats, etc., I don’t know where to begin, but I have thoughts when I log into Siteground, and start blogging… But I’d much rather work on Music, but when I do, it must be the connection to the internet, cause all the secure programs want …

I Need to VENT.

UPDATE : Correction… it seems that 16 boxes, were 16 bandages, at $134.15 in a case, so that was an error, the way they worded it, that caused my dilemma. They word it, so you think your getting a deal, but you’re NOT… but I was ripped off on the colostomy bags, $657.48 for 12 …

Windows 11 is a spy program.

Version 24H2, update is blocking programs. I updated to 23H2 in November in 2023… and I don’t like the copilot thing not being abled to be uninstalled… another spying widget, it’s probably what the widgets feed data to. Here’s what’s new in 24H2 upgrade. I’m thinking I’m going to move to Linux, I know the …

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 …

Akai Pro Studio mk2, is giving me headaches.

I need to Vent from The Anger and Judgment, That I feel From My Myself or Akai. Shoddiness is a new word I learned from watching the tutorial videos, and I’ve seen the shoddiness up close and in my face from Akai Pro… Akai is a big company, and it has many other companies it …

MPC Studio makes you feel stupid,

And I’m already stupid, & I don’t need to be reminded of it. I got this yesterday, and it seems to be loaded with downloads, and it always says no MPC is plugged in, but I have the MPC plugged in, and I need to plug it in so the firmware could be updated, but …

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 …

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 …

I Won’t Be Programmed.

The Casino Games In Life, War and Destruction. “… The reconstruction of Gaza, And put real money into the game…” — Matthew Miller I won’t be programmed is a reference to Siteground’s or some other hacker censoring of my words, there’s an astronomical number of variable for the causes, but I had to change the …

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 …

I received the used MPC Live2 yesterday, and I needed to reacquaint myself to the MPC Beats, I downloaded in January of 2023, but now I know more about it… it’s a sample based editing system… instead of a …

Somebody Like Me

This song is singing about me. Chase McDaniel – Somebody Like Me I‘m feeling sorry for myself, in my narcissistic ways, and I’m tired, and I haven’t got more than 2 hours sleep, before I had to get up, and sign for the used MPC Live2 package from Fedex. I got it, but I don’t …

Studio One 6

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 …

DAW Choice for NOW

Studio ONE 6, For Now at Least. I think I picked Studio One 6 by PreSonus. It seems to work with my workflow style, and it seems easy and works well with MPC devices, and even VST plugins with the Equator synth software… Well, I don’t know if it works with the Equator, but I …

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

Then Morning to a New Day Comes I guess the darkness passes too, and the sun shines on the new day, or a gentle rain waters the plants in your environment… I like the gentle rains without winds, like in a storm… but sometimes you have to face them without fear, and they will pass …

I Broke Down

I Bought an Used MPC Live2 From Sweetwater Exchange on used equipment, which is Guitar Center feature, that Sweetwater adopted on their site. I bought things on the Guitar Center site, or one thing that was used… and I can’t remember what that was, but it seemed kosher, and without problems. This is a playlist …
