Updated Playlists, Tutorials, Linux Re-spins/Custom Distributions

Updated and added a few more playlists to my YouTube account.
  • Classical-19-Dec-14
  • Soundtrack-19-Dec-14
  • Opera-4-Dec-14 
  • Disco-4-Jan-15

Some of the software that I use:
  • Ableton
  • Akai MPC Studio and associated libraries
  • U-He's Synthesisers
  • Cakewalk's Rapture
Some of the hardware that I use:
  • Native Instruments Maschine
  • Korg Triton Taktile 25
  • Roland A-49
  • Audio Technica ATH-M50x
Some of the cheaper, smaller, hardware synthesiser options out there:
  • Korg MicroKorg, Triton Range
  • Novation's XioSynth, MiniNova, UltraNova Range
Most of them will have systemic problems associated with them  but a lot of the time they're easily fixable and service manuals are available online.

What people are actually buying out there.
How to build something simple has been bugging me for a while now.

Fitness tests for entrace to the ADF. Interesting for those of you out there.

If you've ever used sampling software such as Akai MPC and like the functionality, simplicity of a single click to create a note inside the piano roll there's also the 'Ctl+B' shortcut inside of Ableton.

Been re-thinking my strategy of selling MIDI clips and so on. Basically, I've been thinking of creating a library of small clips in Ableton and then using this as the basis for personal music and/or reselling this on to others. An example of this is using the 'Vinyl Scratches' VST plugin to learn how to create a group of unique clips for later reuse.

Have been involved (or have been researching) various forms of online money making in recent times (options for those tired of the standard office work work). These are some of them.

Thinking more about musical bridges in music. Think of note progression, more short notes into passage and slow out (particularly into 'breakdowns') , using effects as a means to keep things blended in.
Interesting for those 'vocalists' out there (it's a vocal sampler CD. A lot of websites also provide a lot of free or paid vocal samples on-line as well) 

If you are a vocalist, watch out for over eating. It can have some strange impacts on your body and voice.

A long time ago at University, I was playing around with automated deployment of software (reasonably sophisticated. Think about Windows automated deployment and so forth) and so on. Now there are many options out there including many distrobutions which are designed with customisation included.

Some interesting electronic artists.
