New e.p created over the last 6 months...had a revelation with note expression in cubase...which led to switching back to cubase from renoise dabble...note expression means I can easily manipulate groove agent pitch far easier than using audio....something i'd become very attached to after renoise...change in thinking from having a million drum tracks to just 16 max and rinsing that as much as possible...the rest is just synths edited to death...
murcy: Nice, some interesting sounds here. And I love the pic, brings back some memories of similar weather situations / vibes. Can you describe the note expression thing a bit more pls? Never used cubase.
Bendish: Note expression is basically the ability to modulate a vsti per note. So filter or pan on one note being different to that of another in a chord...or pitch slides on individual notes...only certain Steinberg plugins can do this apparently: Halion, their bundled synths etc or maybe VST3 compatible stuff...its fun. Here's a boring video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqfYm4MzfAU

The site has been updated considerably for mobile too, have a look on your smartphone. Also, uploading images has been revamped considerably to make it much easier. Tons of other little bug fixes and updates abound.
Juice: it was spectacular indeed. finally saw rdj live. met many cool people. cygnus hugged me. richard devine showed me rdj's email address (i already forgot it). got a pic w/flylo. finally saw bjork (who played a terrible mix imo). saw loads of other cool artists. i'm def not gonna blind buy tickets for next year. only reason i made the trip was to see afx and bjork.if you haven't heard anything about the weather during afx's set... it's just beyond words. amazing
Jonas78: ..sounds like the days of overdriven, distorted gig bootlegs are over, quite good recording, will check it.
AndrewBrewer: To add to Juice comments: there were (what looked to be) very cool pre/after parties held by defunkt. i only when to the pre-party briefly but it was great! if only i had the stamina for the afterparties .... however, now I have heard of defunkt! I never new houston could have a strong idm/electronic scene like that! I plan to follow whatever they do next.
murcy: What's the details behind this? You take an accapela or is this a local act you work with? Nice man.
