CDM, Wire to the Ear Podcast

Music Tech in Review – Episode 1 – Podcast Chat by cdm

I’m obsessed with podcasts. When I moved to Berlin every time I missed english speak or felt alone Leo Laporte and his podcasts were in my ear. After I blogged for a while I knew I had to do a podcast too. I also knew I couldn’t do it alone. Most podcasts with just one host seem really boring to me. After I met Peter Kirn last month at the SAE/Shocklee Panel for IMSTA I knew I had to run the idea past him. Create Digital Music is without doubt an important source for music tech words. I credit that site for killing my subscriptions to Keyboard and Electronic Musician (I still get Sound on Sound). Honestly we don’t know if we have the energy to keep this up but we enjoyed recording the first one. I assume we will keep it going, get a cool name for it, add some audio bumpers and become more comfortable talking. We will get the quality up a bit too. I hope you enjoy our ramblings.

Topics covered: Google Listen, RockBand 3, Korg IMS20, Polychord, iOS Midi, Meeblip, Step Poly Arp, Magic Fiddle, Beat Bop, Pro-Tools 9, Ohm Studio

“This was entirely impromptu, but we do intend to plan ahead and do it right and make it a regular thing. That raises a couple of questions. What would you want in such a program? (High on my list: adding some actual music and music discussion, guests, interactive Q&A…)” – Peter Kirn, CDM

      1. yeh twud be interesting to see what you think of it relative to your Powercore stuff – I have a UAD and Powercore card and I definitely put some of Nebula’s emulations up as high as their stuff – its a bit less user friendly a GUI but in a way I kinda like how it tries to look like a hardware unit.
