UPDATE: The NON-blank podcast is now up. Get the good one if you haven’t already. 😉
Some more great news in this podcast as well as an update on the new single! Also, as I was JUST finishing up the podcast the email came in that says I’m verified for Apple Connect! Follow me now on iTunes. I’ll do a short podcast this week to update you on that.
Music in this podcast is Guilt (Sieve Ochre Mix) and September (Sieve Ochre Mix).
A couple of weeks late, here is episode two with updates on Crowd Funding, latest track I’m working on and a BIG THANK YOU to everyone! Plus a public service announcement for any unsigned artists!
Today’s background music is “Neptune Moon (Gravitational Pull Mix)” from The Other Sides of Travel – Volume #2.
Welcome back fans, welcome newcomers!
As promised here is my kickoff podcast for the upcoming album “North American Oscillation”. Here you will find all the latest public updates on the writing and recording of the upcoming album plus a few surprises here and there. Enjoy!
Gosh I just love sitting down in the fall and writing. Opening up the studio windows, get a nice crisp breeze, and write some serious chill. You can tell by a lot of my titles! Don’t get me wrong I love the Summer and prefer warming weather but here in NC after 5+ months of heat and humidity you start craving some cooler weather.
Unfortunately I ran into a speed bump lately with the studio Mac. I figured I’d upgrade to Mavericks before Apple pulls it off the site in favor of Yosemite. I tend to try to keep the Mac Pro one version behind because I figure the software makers should have upgraded their software by then. Unfortunately with the upgrade to Cubase 7.5 and Mavericks a couple of older plugins took a dump. My Cubase VST path seemed to have reset itself and/or it couldn’t find older plugins. After extensively talking with support on the matter they claim the software should still work. I tried several things and even manually unpackaged some of them. It kept showing the older version in Cubase Plugin information. I decided to reboot and then Voila! they showed up. Oh wait… I can’t hear anything now, WTF Cubase??? I close Cubase and restart. Plugins are broken again. How is that possible??? I finally shut down the damn thing for the night. At least it appears I am on the right track. No pun intended!
Anyway, more from TFR Records Studios later!!
I’ve been getting the massive urge lately to roll out some new music. Probably because it’s long overdue. Unfortunately I’ve just been so busy with other responsibilities that it’s been tough to sit down for any lengthy period of time to thrash out some ideas. Of course I do have several ideas that I’ve thrown up on SoundCloud from last year that are available here.
Been kind of laid up with a nasty sinus infection from being worn down with so much other crap lately so I decided to actually mess around with the Garage Band app I have on my iPad. I think it was updated more recently and has some nifty new features and really isn’t half bad for what it is. I honestly think it may help me kickstart some ideas when I have a few minutes here and there. It’s a nice mobile way of getting things out. If you haven’t seen it it actually has several different instrument types and sub-types of keys, strings, drums, etc. I was actually able to get a few cool synth like sounds to mess around with a lead part and the thing even has cutoff and resonance! LOL. You can roll out some relatively nice drum patterns rather quickly as well and even quantize. Needless to say I may be kicking off more ideas this way in the near future.
Anything to jumpstart the writing process again!
Hope you here from me soon!
