Yep, that's a thing for me now! Everything is on a "Pay What You Want" system, so you can grab everything for free, or toss me a dollar so I can keep up my nonsense :D

 

Be sure to check out my series of remasters on there under "Remastered Previous Works", some of them are pretty beasty now that I gave them a quality pass!

We've been live for a couple weeks now, and now that we have a handful of videos up, may as well plug the channel over here :)

 

Take a look and enjoy the madness!

Still no fan of the site but hey I need the exposure.

It's a bit blank at the moment because WHY GOD FACEBOOK LAYOUT, but we'll be sure to fill it up with various musings about and updates on my music!

And it's going to be goddamned hilarious with the cohosts


FL Studio 11 Released!

2013-04-25 21:23:02 by TheComet

So I've ordered a Novation Launchpad S and a Korg Microkey 37, and on that same week, FL Studio 11 went live!

I've been trying out the new stuff, the new Performance Mode is AWESOME. Full support for a bunch of different MIDI controllers, namely Novation's Launchpad and Launchpad S, Korg's APC, among others.

On top of that, the new toys they've added in there should make deep growly basslines a bit easier to work with and all around improvements on the software.

If you've got FL, go get the free upgrade NOW, it's worth it!

Seriously, take a look at this.

Pump in the tones you used in that key you put together by ear, and you'll see what tones are consonant to it.

If you're ever stuck on where to go next with your score, this thing is a goddamned lifesaver!

In other news, I finally broke out of my music rut (if you havn't noticed from the slew of new audio in the last week or two :D), expect to see MUCH more in the near future as alot of my existing project near a close and various new ones (and some random "studies") pop up!

ps: Starting to get the hang of this Akai LPD8, havn't worked out how to map the pads to seperate channels yet (FPC works....but it isn't synched up nicely with the master sync for long samples), but I've been using the knobs for EVERYTHING lately, I love being able to do live adjustments for whatever the hell I feel like


Akai LPD 8 Purchased!

So I snagged myself one of these, should be arriving in the mail in a day or two.

I've been wanting to get a controller for awhile now and it turned out they have them fairly cheap nowadays, so I jumped on a pretty basic model with a buncha features to it.

I'm planning on doing live mixes on my livestream show once I get the hang of it, going to be some fun stuff!

Also expect me to have WAY more control over my modulation now that I have physical k nobs for it, and expect to see some of my mixes showing up on site! :D

New VSTs

2012-08-30 02:58:07 by TheComet

Picked up Harmor, Harmless, and Morphine

of the 3, Harmor seems like the one that sticks the best for me, I've already made a few synths with it and I can tell you it's one powerful vst.

Also it has Resynthesis built in <3

Here's a little something I did while messing around with it
