08.30.2010 Brazilian Mood music for W&L Theater’s upcoming performance of Euridyce. I played and recorded all of the instruments (no MIDI this time!) with the help of Ableton LiveCollings D-1Yamaha BB-3000SMeinl Artist Series (Luis Conte) Studio Shaker, an older Musser xylophone, Late 70s Gretsch drumsUniversal Audio 2-6102 Empirical Labs EL8M DistressorsMytek Stereo96 ADCDigidesign MBox 2,RCA 77-DX and 44-BXMojave Audio MA-100 and a Sony MDR-7509HD.

01.30.2006 Ableton Live makes it fun to slice funk jams.

02.03.2005 This composition has been around in one form or another for a long time. Pete Meriwether helped write a bit of the head one day in the practice room. Bob Bowers is here on the saxes.

03.24.2005 Can’t go wrong with this famous Grant sample. After jamming over the groove for a few months at Pizza Perfect the guitar part solidified into a melody.

06.29.2005 Experimenting with texture samples and Impulse in Ableton Live. Guitar is acoustic with various effects in Ableton like Grain Delay, etc. Multiple versions of Steinberg Groove Agent are driving the majority of percussion sounds.

01.07.2005 A bit of jazz odyesey tonight (this one’s by the bass player) with Bob Bowers on tenor sax and myself laying down the bass, keys and drums.

I played every track into the computer along with live guitar and trumpets. Organ, drums, percussion, bass, alto sax, and trombone sounds are generated by VSTi plug-ins that I created with Nuendo and a USB controller. I am utilzing the plug-ins like this:

  • Groove Agent for the drum patterns
  • DFH Superior Drummer for the kit
  • DFH Superior Percussion for the tambourine
  • Trilogy bass instrument
  • acoustic trumpet stacks recorded with EV RE-20 plugged directly into audio interface
  • alto sax and trombone from Edirol’s Orchestral
  • Native Instruments’ B4 organ
  • IK Multimedia’s Amplitube for electric guitar plugged directly into audio interface
