Montreal was great. Drove to NYC. Opened boxes.

The first night Festival Kinetik was great. We sound checked at the same time as Ascii Disko (photo above). He forgot his audio interface so I lent him my M-Audio Firewire 410. I have to mention the 410 because that interface has worked flawlessly for my live show over the past several years. Daniel (Ascii) jumped online without leaving the stage, downloaded the drivers and it worked without a glitch. It only takes a minute to set up the 410 to control the on stage monitors using the M-audio control/system preference panel We had dinner and Sake together and had a chance to catch up with Matt (Satronica) who was one of my best friends when I lived in NYC.

The Montreal Mirror interview I did was out around town and it’s also available online now too. You can read it by: clicking here. I also did a video podcast for Vergel Evans great show LX7.ca. Be sure to keep an eye out on his site for that. Lastly, I did a video interview for noisescape.tv based out of San Fransisco. I was in a strange good mood when I did that interview and told some interesting stories. I will be ashamed when I see it!

There will be a plenty of photos and videos from all the live shows. You can already see one from Nitzer Ebb’s set on YouTube: Join in the Chant


I skipped the after party fun and got enough sleep to pick up the rental car at 9:00AM. We ended up with a Kia Sedona. I wanted something with some power but it rained most of the drive back so in the end the Kia was a good choice.

I arrived in NY and happy me the box from Curious Inventor.com was waiting. So far no audio tests but here’s a photo of my new toys…

  1. I’ve had a Firewire Audiophile & a 1814 & they’d always work rock solid. Great units & very flexible for multi-track recording within Live.

    Wish the video wasn’t so distorted by bass but it looks like the crowd totally ate up the minimal jams.

    No clue what those new toys do but I love the retro-looking knobs.

  4. Funny thing, the *only* time I had a crash of interface in the middle of a live set – it was the FireWire 410.
