I’m not dead…

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

So this is my first post in 2012.  Of course much has happened in this time, and most of it is not worth documenting here, but suffice it to say that I have had a LOT going on.  For one thing, in June (on my birthday) we had a new baby girl named Evelyn!  She is great and everyone in my house is happy and healthy.  Except for the cat, Gibson.  He is healthy but not really sure why we brought another of THOSE noisy things into his house.

It is all so very tiring…

The last post I made on this blog was about a “new musical direction“.  That has mostly happened, but with one change.  The RM1x is in fact the center of my studio now, sequencing to all my other gear, but I have not completely removed the computer from the picture.. I have turned it into a “virtual rack case” which runs audio effects (the audio interface is setup so that the inputs run “through” the FX plugins directly to the matching outputs) and also a sampler.  The sampler is of special interest and importance, since so much of my gear (such as the Moog Opus 3 and Yamaha DX7s) is difficult or ill-advised to move, that it is more sensible to record samples of the sounds I make and sequence those in my music instead.  Doing this job beautifully is the TX16wx sampler plugin.  It is a model of the similarly named Yamaha sampler from the 90’s, but offers an incredible amount of power and flexibility, including actual sampling right in the plugin!

And in terms of things I am sampling with it, I have also acquired another new piece of gear.  In fact it is the ONLY brand-new musical instrument I have ever bought.  It is a brand new analog synthesizer from Arturia called the Minibrute.  This is a pure -analog monosynth.  This synth has been generating a ton of buzz since before it was even released, and early pre-orders (including mine) waited over 3 months.  In the end, though, the instant I unboxed it and hooked it up, I knew it was worth it.  This thing has POWER inside its small case, and with no menus, sub-functions, or screen, all of the sound-making capability is immediately accessible.  You just move the knobs and sliders until it sounds the way you want it to.

Aside from music, I am also working on an ebook for Kingdoms of Legend, which I will write about more later..

down to my mom’s house and spend time with them. A big part of this is that Lily got to ride the pony “Jessie”. As many people are quite aware, “little girl + pony = love” is so consistent that it could just about be a law of mathematics. Check out our family blog for more on all of that and where the “spiders” come in..

As for the (inter)webs, I’ve been getting Drupal training at work from the very cool and talented Drew Gorton of Gorton Studios. I’ve been using this knowledge to (aside from more work related activities) enhance my band website, The website is still “in flux”, but it’s come a long way, and it’s all done in Drupal now with a builtin player so you can listen to our whole record for free right on the site. I hope people like it. I’ve certainly learned a lot and had fun making it.

Due to reasons I cannot even begin to explain here, 17hex (and indeed everything that was on the server with it) had to be moved to a new server.  Along the way we got a MUCH larger array, faster computer and a good reason to upgrade to WordPress 2.7.   There were some “technical difficulties”, but they are now resolved, and 17hex is back and better than ever.

Thanks as always to Jamie for his continued free hosting and support.

I have a lot going on. Duh.

Jill’s last day of work before maternity leave was today, and I was sort of buried under fixing last-minute report card issues (gotta love people who wait til the absolute last minute to do things, and then do the “ohmygoditsnotworkingandineeditrightnow” dance when there’s a problem). Of COURSE there will be a problem at the last minute (Murphy and I, we go way back)! With quite a bit of help, those crises were averted, and then we got a Xmas tree on the way home, set that up, and went out to dinner and Half-Price Books. Ahh Half-Price Books. (more…)

LifeDrive and the mobile web

Friday, November 30th, 2007

As I continue to use uBlog, it becomes clear that it is the current winner in the race to be the “mobile blogging software of choice” for the LifeDrive. It doesn’t crash (!), actually creates properly formatted WordPress posts (the trick was to connect to the WordPress blog in “Moveable type” format – “blogger” format didn’t create proper titles that wordpress recognized), supports WP categories, and is quick to use.

It’s funny that since I started “moblogging” I have posted more in the last three days than I had in the last 3 weeks, but all the posts so far have been about blogging. Could blogging about blogging be called “metablogging”? (more…)

bit of a redesign

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

So I’ve done a bit of a redesign, based on the “Mushblue” theme by Mu. The picture at the top is of my own design, and was made in the Gimp, which is an excellent Open Source image editing app. As for the content on this site, it’s still lousy…

Otherwise, I have been insanely busy with working, finishing the Kether record, and preparing for the immanent birth of our baby, who is due on December 12th. All of these things go well, but are terribly time consuming. This has lead me to a new quest to find a more efficient

way to get content onto my blog. I have been using a Palm LifeDrive a LOT, and have the feeling that this will be central to any new scheme I come up with. As for what that is/will be, I have no idea as of yet. The moral of this particular story is: check back, as hopefully i will be posting more often in the future!

I hope all is well for all of you.

Wow. It’s really been 3 months since I posted last. For some reason I’m still constantly amazed at how fast time goes by. But Spring is springing now and all of those creatures (like myself) that go dormant in the Winter time are slowly starting to crawl out of their holes and hiding spots and rejoin the sunlit world. I haven’t been totally dormant though.. I’m finished now with the first single for our new record, and just waiting for tomtom to master it, and then it will be released

Uwe Schmidt under the moniker “Lassigue Bendthaus” has been hugely influential to multiple genres of music. On the last lb record, called “Pop Artificielle”, he did ingenious covers of famous songs. One of them (a beautiful cover of “Jealous Guy” by John Lennon) was turned into a video by Bienvenido Cruz.. the video is called 404. Watch it..
