Pas De Bol (420 Mix) 2016 Re-Light by DJShadowkat 5 days ago
@FreeEarCandy,

Thanks for the ratings and comments!! πŸ‘

I did a small amount of retouching on the original tracks, but Supercharger put the kick in the drums.

I too used tiny speakers for a long time, then one day I decided to put a real amp and speakers on my MacPro running the audio from the Mac's optical out to the amp input. Made all the difference in the world!!

Pas De Bol (420 Mix) 2016 Re-Light by DJShadowkat 5 days ago
@becwil,

Glad you approve. This has been one of my best and favorite original tracks for a long time, but I always felt it needed more punch and volume.

I actually remastered this from the original tracks.

I'm so impressed with the new gadgets I hardly know what to do.

Well, that's not true.

I just dug through 6 hard drives looking for oldies that I've always wanted to rework and I found 4 that I'm going to start working on this weekend.

Yaaay! TOYS!!!

This track is most dope! Love the mix of the guitars. Keyboards are nice too. Cool effect on the vocals.

@mre,

Thanks!

I just got the new NI Komplete 11 and a new Arturia Spark. Still trying to figure out the Spark... I can get Logic Pro to see the pads on the Spark but the sequencer is another thing. Several of the synths on this track are new to me. Plus I also used NI Supercharger for the first time on the mastering.

@Narananda,

Many thanks! Coming from you such praise makes me very happy!! smiley

I am a fan of your work as well. I still would love to collab sometime!

Some of the synths were myself, some were @RazbaqueDirge.

You Drive Me Nuts by DJShadowkat 29 days ago
Reaktor is cool, but I have not found any practical use for it in my music yet.

I mostly use Massive, Absynth, FM 8 and Kontact, as well as a large number of the LPX synths and several others like Arturia's ARP2600.

You Drive Me Nuts by DJShadowkat 29 days ago
@JimTheObscure,

Yes, I make many of my own loops from various soft synths or I edit loops to get the part I like. If it's a MIDI loop (sometimes called Green Apple Loops or GarageBand loops) I edit the midi "notes" themselves.

Thanks for the comments'!!

You Drive Me Nuts by DJShadowkat 29 days ago
I have so many tracks I'm working on Its just crazy. This year has been good for me creatively!!

I did this track just to play around with the new patches I got and this took me about 6 hours altogether.

I sure do love to tinker! I bought a new amp for the studio last week. My old one was worn out and was really getting aggravating. This new amp is a Yamaha and even does 10.1 surround! It doesn't color the audio like the old amp did as you can turn off the eq settings and run it flat. Makes my Klipsh speakers sound so much better!

I really enjoyed listening to this with my earbuds on my iPhone. Sounds great.

I noticed that when I made this comment that 77 people had already listened to it, yet @toveco and I are the only ones so far that said anything. I'm not griping, please understand. But it would be cool if there was a way for the artist to see who listened to your track even though they said nothing.

This is fine work. I love it!

All the Best Chinese Stewardesses Have Eyes by pharmakeus 1 month ago
In a thinly veiled attempt at comedy, I suddenly thought of a "420" reference to the title that goes like this:

"All the best stewardesses have Chinese eyes"

When in college that's what everyone called getting stoned, i.e.: we're all Chinese Eyed...

When heard the opening, I thought of Rick Springfield's "Speak To The Sky" for some reason. Then it turned into The Greatful Dead meets Commander Cody, and that's not a bad thing and I'm showing my age again.

Oh cool. Raz and I are both playing No Man's Sky... a game that I fell in love with right away, which is why I wrote the song "Not My Sky"...

smiley

I've never played AC, there is a version on the PS4. I will have to give it a try. I've been playing Destiny and Borderlands 2 for a while now, and got the new DOOM a few weeks ago and it's amazing.

The only game I play on my MacPro these days is Call Of Duty 4.

A friend of my has his own server called Madhouse Zombies and he makes his own maps and they are freaking awesome, and he runs a mod that is pretty cool. If you or anyone else has COD4, you are welcome to join us. Union Jack (screen name) is a great guy and there are some awesome people on the server to play with as well from all over the world. Best time to play is around 5pm CST as they are in the UK.

There is a Madhouse Zombies website that gives you the IP address to put in COD4 so you can join. My screen name is Mongo Go Boom, a tribute to one of my favorite movies of all time Blazing Saddles.

Not My Sky (Toveco ReMaster) by DJShadowkat 1 month ago
@mellis,

Thanks for the comments. I sorta play guitar but mostly chords. This guitar lead is actually a keyboard with a guitar patch ran through NI Guitar Rig and some filters. I've gotten better at giving it a realistic sound I think.

@toveco and I have developed a friendship of sorts. He's really good at mastering, and sometimes it's best to let someone else do the final mastering!
