Huge thanks to Claude Young and the crew of serious musicians, producers and artists that attended Yaxteq Lab 001. After the initial social hour and dinner, Claude went deep into his creative process. There was discussion on improving the creative work flow, essential software plugins, integrating hardware and software, thinking ‘outside’ the grid and so much more. The second half of the lab was all hands on as Claude helped one of the crew improve the mix of a current project. The lab ended up running an extra hour as there was just so much to be covered. We can’t wait for Yaxteq Lab 002. Check out the photos courtesy of Naheedence Photographic! http://www.naheedence.com
When I’m not producing and downloading music or recording podcasts. I’m troubleshooting computer software and hardware – Linux, Mac and Windows desktops, servers, etc.
One of my favorite online resources is www.ifixit.com and now they’ve launched a new site: www.ifixit.org. They put it best: “We are going to profile repair gurus from around the world, investigate the motivations of people who fix things, and consider the larger ethical and philosophical issues surrounding repair.” Check them out!!
Trent Reznor talks with Jason Bentley about scoring Hollywood movies, sound design and more. Quality!!
I’ve been using Kontakt since the original version was released years ago. On the surface it works like a rack-mount drum machine, so I took to it immmediately. This new update looks sweet, especially with the updated time machine and scripting features. Get more info and check out demos at the Native Instruments website.
