Yes, I am resurrecting this song for another birthday. Cherish this, Garrett. Love it with all that you are.
I received another new toy in the mail yesterday. Not the Alesis Control Pad, but the stand. It is a Roland PDS-10. The stand didn't come with screws and if the Control Pad did, I lost them. I had a difficult time finding the screw size, but I finally found a web forum that said "standard rack screws should work." I searched for "standard rack screws" and came up with three different sizes. I tried one, 10-32 sized screws, 5/8" long. Fortunately, it worked. Now to record...
Here is a song I recorded for a video my mom created to showcase the jewelry she was giving away at the MTV Movie Awards. You can see more of her jewelry, including info about the MTV Movie Awards gift lounge at http://silverschells.blogspot.com/
Look what I got! I've been eyeing Komplete since version 2, and now I finally have it!
I am most looking forward to using Kontakt 5 and Reaktor. I'm already got other programs for Guitar (ReValver) and drums (Steven Slate Drums). This is going to be fun.
Yes, I am revising my site again. I’ve found a new WordPress theme I rather like, Immersion by Graph Paper Press. My favorite feature is the audio post type. It embeds an audio player into each post that is marked as “Audio”. The WP theme and audio player work well on mobile phones as well. However, I am not very fond of the color scheme and layout, so I’m going to see if I can do something about that.
UPDATE: the theme update added some color and font options, and it added a header image as well. It looks like I won’t have quite as much work to do to update the site.
This is a new clip with my new bass. Also, I am testing my new theme and plugin settings.
I am experimenting with some settings, trying to get some metal sounds. Here is what I have come up with so far:
Edit: adding a persnickety little clip-
So, I was having a conversation with coworkers tonight and the topic of my website came up. Then I realized that I haven’t updated this in quite some time. In fact, I almost forgot it was here. Oh website, how neglected you have been these past months.
Well, here are the clips I have worked on over the past few months when I’ve had some free time. Looks like May was my busiest month (eight clips) while March and June only saw one apiece.
Oh, and I’m not going to link to the actual Word of the Day for these. You can look them up yourselves: 2011 Word of the Day Archive or dictionary.com
I have added a new playlist, but it does not seem to work quite right. See that thing over on the right over there? Yeah, sometimes it plays songs and sometimes it doesn’t. Well, I’m leaving it there for now and hoping that it fixes itself or that I can figure out a way to reprogram it.
Happy Birthday Mom, Dustin, Derek and Dylan. Yeah, Dylan, I know your birthday is in December, but I figured I might as well get this out of the way now. You all have to share this 30 seconds of music. You can split it up however you like.
