    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   Kent Morris said “live music is about the energy.“ That’s so true.  Where does that energy come from? How do you control it? And why can it sometimes be so hard to find?  All questions that will soon be answered. Phil Coulter, on his Highland Cathedral album, has a song that’s dedicated to the drums. It starts out with a few lines of verse that highlights the importance of the drums… View this post

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   Ah, lazy Sunday afternoon. It’s wet and rainy out, so what to do? How about making some music with some fun online sequencers. Snag a comfy chair at Starbucks and kill a few hours making music on your laptop. Perfect! Composer - This one is perhaps a little limited, but it’s still fun. A drum machine with synced synthesizer. Tone Matrix - 256 buttons, and one sinewave tone, I find the… View this post

I thought for a while, and realized I couldn’t think of any. So I thought I’d write up a Reader’s Digest condensed version. This won’t be comprehensive, but will have a few thoughts on what I consider important for portable system design. Of course, all these ideas need to be considered in light of your… View this post
