Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I have a mountain to be thankful for. I’m healthy, working and making music often. It’s only 1:30 but so far I demoed some software synthesizers I had my eye for a while. I tried the Madrona Labs Aalto, UH-E ACE and the XILS-3. They were all interesting and if your a soft synth person I could recommend them all. I did the the XILS-3 the best though. That said, they don’t compare to my new AS Telemark so I zapped them from my hard drive. I uploaded an “old” demo to Soundcloud as an apple pie was being created in my kitchen. I’m off to my mother’s house soon for the big eating. I really do appreciate everyone who visits Wire to the Ear so that’s one more thing I am thankful for in 2011.

“I celebrate Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land.” – John Stewart

    1. Don’t get me wrong I liked it especially the presets with the sequencer going. I just have some hardware here that although it’s more effort really give me an edge (at least I think so).

  2. Great to hear you’re enjoying the Telemark. I’ve just sent back my Tempest so have a store credit burning a hole in my pocket – would like to hear what you can get out of it when you get some time (other than the official demos)

  3. Reassuring to know I’m not the only one who hates a cluttered hard drive so far as music-making is concerned!

    1. Part of all this trying things out has to do with the fact I’m going to get a new iMac in the studio soon. Right now I have a Dual 2.5 G5 but many new plug-ins won’t run on non-Intel… now that I’m weeks away from the switch I can test stuff on my laptop without getting my studio too jealous because it’s incoming.
