I figure that by posting about it, it will motivate me to actually do it. I have recently been toying with the idea of getting back into drumming and the idea is getting more and more appealing as time goes by. I do already have a kit, but it’s a bit dated now (Yamaha DTXpress […]

This bass pedal device was originally intended for sole use underneath an organ called the Constellation, but this Moog product never surfaced. The Taurus […]

Some new and interesting developments over at Hollow Sun recently. First up, Steve has started a blog. Now, if you know Steve as I know Steve, this is certainly not his “thing”. He views blogs, much like Twitter and any other form of Social Networking, as a lame and vacuous, self serving waste of time! […]

Sampling. Even today, some 30 or more years after digital sampling came to the world of music making, the word sampling, when used in a musical context, is viewed with equal amounts of cynicism and joy. Peter Gabriel once famously said that songs like Paul Hardcastle’s “19” had set the art of sampling back by […]

The internet gives many individuals great power, but very few of them wield it responsibly. I’ll cut to the chase and explain why I’m using that quote. A few years back, Alesis, […]

Just thought I’d share this one with you. I treated myself yesterday to a new sample library from Digital Sound Factory. As you may well know, I’m a sucker for any early sampler like an Emulator or Fairlight and I am always on the look out for good sample libraries. So when I found this […]
