Back to the basics?

I question that because I'm not really going back to the basics equipment wise.  Let me explain.... I recently purchased a Native Instruments Maschine.  It's an awesome desktop unit reminiscent of the Akai MPC series(not really because you can still buy the Akai stuff).  It's just WAY cheaper.  I also…

Slowwwwwww

So, the kids have been with the grandparents all week.  I thought I would have all week to do all kinds of fun stuff.  Reality of it is I was stunned having a quiet house this week and decided to do a whole lot of nothing, up until yesterday.  MY…

Reflection time?

I'm not sure that's the right way to say that....Let me explain. I took the kids up to Rochester this past weekend to spend a little time with the Grandparents.  On my way back home I had a GREAT conversation with myself.  Sparky spent most of the drive sleeping, lucky…

A Small Note

J Vaughn came into the studio yesterday. We sat down, over a couple brews, and went through the material for The Very Best of 58 Steps. I'm not trying to toot our own horn, but we really have some good music coming your way. It was nice to sit back…

Back in my element!

Finally got to load NATIVE INSTRUMENTS KOMPLETE 9 ULTIMATE!!! OMG. I told the kids earlier that that would be the last time seeing me for a while! I've been messing around with some of it the past couple of hours and I gotta tell you, it's friggin AWESOME.... I don't…

Busy, Busy, Busy

Where has the weeks gone? It feels like I haven't blogged in a month or so! Well, for some updates. Personally, I spent some time in Rochester last weekend with my mommy for Mother's Day. That was fun, as always. Still wish I lived closer to Rochester though... Musically I…
