More Bumps [revenge of the shitty HP mouse]

Well it seems my mouse has taken to double clicking every time I use the left button, making opening files and adjusting slight changes in a DAW almost impossible. Got a new one coming in the mail along with a new quieter [hopefully] case fan. I've recently gotten into recording vocals and weird sounds, and in every recording my noisy computer can be heard pretty clearly, haha. Guess I'm just gonna have to turn the closet into a recording area. Wonder if that'll go over well with the miss's?

Granular Stuffs

I Just recently got this awesome granular vst for Ableton. I've almost just been opening it up everyday and just writing songs based purely off of the stuff that I'm coming up with from the vst. It's a really neat way to design sounds, I suggest taking a look at Granulator for the free vst and a cool video from the designer. Here's some stuff I recorded today while I was having some fun with it.

Got some new cables!

Well after getting my soundcard in I've just had it running rcas to my monitors, but I FINALLY just my TRS cables in and man did it make a HUGE difference. I've just been listening to things recently and noticing all sorts of things I hadn't previously heard. Really awesome stuff. Anyways after I got them in I just started messing around with a beat to see how good I could get a loop sounding just for fun. Here is that loop haha.

Got my sound card in!

Well good news today, I finally got this sound card that I ordered in! Oh man does it make a world of difference too. I'd have to say that besides buying monitors this was the smartest purchase I've made towards my hobby, which is music. Well that's really all for now, but keep a watch, cause I'll probably be posting some bits before too long. Later for now!

Hip Hop that is truly classic.

These are some of my all time favorite Hip Hop tracks, I really wish this style would get as popular as it used to be.

Girlfriend got a 360

Well for Xmas this year my old lady got an Xbox so she could play Skyrim [she's a big Oblivion nerd] this is good news to me for two reasons... Now I can get MW3 for console, and I can have some more time to work on tunes since she'll be sucked into Skyrim 24/7 now haha. Ah, you just gotta love those "win win" situations. I'm still waiting on some things I order last week to come in, so I can get started on some new tunes. I've had the itch to write for the past month and now I'll finally be able to get back at it.
