Does anybody really read these things?
I'm not much for blogging, but here I go...
I have not posted anything new in a while on iComp because I am dead in the middle of 4 new songs that are taking longer than I thought they would.
Most of that is my fault, I just started a new job with IBM and loving it, but after a long day I sometimes just don't get to spend too much time on my music on weekdays.
Recently, I bought Native Instruments' KORE 2 and KOMPLETE 8 and I've been going thru all the cool goodies and gadgets and learning how to use them.
If you are looking for a really great package of soft synths and more I cannot emphasize enough how great all of Native Instruments gadgets are!!
Now I sound like a spokesperson. But I'm not, I just know what I like and want to share it with everyone.
Currently I am working on 4 songs.
One is a remake of Gary Numan's "Are Friends Electric?" and it's been a lot of hard work because it's one of my favorite songs of all time and I don't want to screw it up.
I've already tossed out 4 test mixes and working on another now. Plus, I am doing the vocals on it as well!
I'm also working on a song I call "The Shadow Machine" and I am using the sound from videos on YouTube and Earthfiles.com of the strange "Gabriel's Horns" sounds that people are reporting all over the planet.
I heard them myself and frankly it scared the crap out of me. it's a very spooky sound and I get goosebumps every time I hear them.
I took those recordings and I am using them in the song. I'm hoping to have the song finished before my birthday in April.
Latest Song: Familiar Taste of Poison (Cover)
