It’s Jamuary Again! Day One

It’s that time of year again, and I’m going to be at it again — or at least try to. Today’s stream features the Native Instruments Kontrol S49 MkIII controlling a hybrid configuration consisting of Ableton Live and a mixture of hardware and software synths.

Forward Backward Upside Down

Another new piece of music. This work-in-progress came about while I was exploring Arturia’s Analog Lab Pro, and my collection of Native Instruments plug-ins. The inspiration came from the bassline found in Arturia’s Acid V (the player-only version included with Analog Lab). So, two tracks… Read More »Forward Backward Upside Down

‘Tis The Season

Those who know me well know that I’m not a religious person, nor really much of a Christmas person. But there are a couple of Christmas carols that have always been favorites of mine. That they are favorites have little to do with the season… Read More »‘Tis The Season

Podolski’s Inner Workings

I’ve been musicing today! A musical work in progress using mostly instruments and effects included with Ableton Live 11 Suite, except for a couple of tracks made with u-he’s free Podolski VST instrument.

2 GAIAs — Some Thoughts on Roland’s New GAIA 2 Synth

I have, in the past, mentioned the Roland GAIA synthesizer, and have said that it could well be a “perfect” synth. Indeed, during its 13 years of production, it was a preferred instrument for teaching about synthesis and sound design in schools and universities everywhere. So, I was naturally quite interested when Roland announced the GAIA 2.

Tracker First “Jam”

Jamming is not exactly the word I’d use to describe working with the Polyend Tracker, but for lack of a better word, it’ll do for now. Making music with it is a process. It’s actually a fairly enjoyable process, though, once you start to get… Read More »Tracker First “Jam”

What Happens at Knobcon…

  • Music

As you may or may not know, I’ve been to Knobcon, the annual electronic music convention held each September in Schaumburg, Illinois. It’s probably America’s biggest synth festival, and attracts manufacturers and electronic musicians and synth-tubers from all over the country and even some from… Read More »What Happens at Knobcon…


Space-Ambient Drone music, perfect to put on in the background and veg out to. Enjoy! (UPDATED with corrected audio! IT sounds much better now!)

Ambient Drone 230813

I made a new noise this evening. It started out to be another “audition” for Autochroma. And then I remember I’d wanted to try using PaulXStretch, too. One thing led to another, as it usually does. Oh, yeah. Stepic is involved, too.
