Hobnox – Audio creation Tools for the web.

May 13, 2008 at 2:00 pm | music.

This site was so hot, we thought we might need to block it at my work. Super cool online music creation tool. You can grab the ins and outs and plugin them into effects and everything. Kinda has some Reason like features. Super cool. The only thing that I thought was missing is the ability… Read more »

Liquor Store Venus

April 28, 2008 at 1:41 pm | music.

As if I didn’t have enough music to do I have started another music collaboration thing with a friend in the city. Our working title is “Liquor Store Venus”. It’s a pretty cool setup because we both work with the same recording setup, even down to the same Universal Audio plugins. I will post some… Read more »

My fickle Motu sound card

April 15, 2008 at 9:09 am | music.

My Motu 2408 MKIII audio card is becoming the wack a mole of computer problems these days. It works, it doesn’t work. It works for 2 days and then doesn’t work for a week. I have switched PCI slots, taken out other cards, tried to work out the booting order with the hardware and the… Read more »

Guitar Center is crappy

April 9, 2008 at 9:11 am | blabbing, music.

I thought I would write about the past couple of times that I have been to Guitar Center because I think it illustrates what a problem the company has with management and employees. The first time I went into the Guitar center was over the weekend and I thought, “You idiot, you shouldn’t come in… Read more »

New Logic 8

September 13, 2007 at 9:54 am | music.

Apple quietly updated their music production software Logic. It is now called Logic Studio and includes the Logic platform as well as Soundtrack 2 and a live component called Mainstage. All this and they dropped the price by half. The whole thing is now $499 (I paid $999 a couple of years ago). I hope… Read more »

SCO v. Novell

August 10, 2007 at 2:17 am | music.

SCO, the retarded OS folks from Linden Utah, got their day in court but didn’t count on how it ended. Summary judgement against them. Nice. For a little back story, SCO is a company that was suing IBM for all it could get because it said IBM put part of its UNIX operating system into… Read more »

Save Indiegeek.com

July 20, 2007 at 11:22 am | music.

Alanna has decided that she wants to give up Indiegeek.com because she can’t keep up the site anymore. But I think she should keep it and here is what I think the plan is. Indiegeek.com will be reborn as a contributory blog by Alanna, myself and lots of other people we know who write, talk,… Read more »

My record

June 2, 2007 at 10:38 am | music.

It has finally arrived. That’s right, I have a record out. I decided that I would spend the time and money to get the record that I made mastered and printed, and it turned out pretty good. I played most of the instruments and I produced and engineered it from my living room studio now… Read more »

Trent Reznor on labels today

May 23, 2007 at 7:59 am | blabbing, music.

There is a funny interview with Trent Reznor with the Herald Sun in Australia. He talks about people stealing music, including himself, and about how the major labels are ripping off his fans. I think he has part of it right with the idea that more people would pay for music legally if it was… Read more »

Not much

February 2, 2007 at 7:03 pm | music.

I am obviously not doing much music since getting my arm operated on a few weeks back. Jhina and I are finishing up the mixes for the Tiny Black Dots record titled “Coming apart slowly” so hopefully we will have all the mixes and artwork done over the next couple of weeks. We decided to… Read more »
