 # I joked in response to Duncan that looping round and around for 20 minutes might be a bit much but then proceeded to listen to it for 90 minutes straight as I was reworking it with hardware. 😆

It really does get into your brain! 🎹 🎶 🧠

# The new hardware version of round and around is done!

…and around, and around, and around.

 # It goes round and around, and around...

Just a quick idea I put together in Reason that could turn into something cool.

# I've been using a free text to speech website to make spoken vocals rather than try to record something. It's working out nicely and adds something extra that has been missing previously.

Throw in a free vocoder plugin and you've really got something.

 # For the past few days my creative energies have been channeled solely into making music. I've had a hard time putting one word after another so switched to an outlet that doesn't require any. Hence very few posts.

My brain doesn't want to do more than one thing in any given period but when it comes to something it wants to do I hyperfocus.

I'm repeating what I wrote back in April.

I was never entirely happy with the Roland TR-06 1 as I thought the volume levels of the different sounds were too inconsistent. As soon as I got the RD-9 2 the TR was disconnected.

It turns out that depending on how you connect it you need to mess around with the 'OUT' parameter to force everything on to the same output channel. The improvement is amazing so I've hooked it back up to create some old school acid vibes and am loving it!

I'm looking to get a few tracks together that I'm really happy with to list on BandCamp (and maybe Spotify etc.) It's a whole different world from uploading tracks to the old back in 1999/2000.

  1. Roland's recreation of the classic TR-606 drum machine 

  2. Behringer's clone of the Roland TR-909
