The last post I complained about buying too many things thinking they would help my work flow. I also said I was trying to stop doing that. Well I think this is a lost cause as I just went out and got a Novation LaunchPad Pro. My only justification is, that it will help me get my electric music done faster when using Ableton.
I have a real bad habit of buying every little gadget that comes along. I always tell myself that this "whatever" will be the be all and end all of my music goals. That new guitar will make me play faster, the new DAW will be easier to write and record, etc. Well after starting this "old school" project I am finding out that a rummage sale may be in order. All those gadgets are just collecting dust while I get down to business and use all my old stuff. It might not turn out to be the most sonically sounding stuff on earth, but man it has a lot of soul.
First I would like to say that the old school recording has been going well. Have been using everything from my iPhone to old cassette recorders. Its a blast trying to get quality (at least in my head) sounds out of such dated products. That being said I must now rant and rave about why it has taken so long to write this. About 7 weeks ago my info from credit cards to email accounts started to act all goofy. Started getting calls from friends asking me why I would say this or that in my last email. The trouble was it was not me, it was someone who stole my info and was having fun fucking up my stuff. My credit cards were compromised but luckily I was able to get warnings before it got out of hand. I will find out who did this as I have several friends on both the side of the law and others who tend to break it. I will tie these pieces of shit to a chair and drive pins into their fucking eyeballs until they pass out. Then I will wake them up drill holes in their heads and piss down the holes. Thanks for listening and the recording will continue.
