Day 32. It‘s been a month!

I feel 2 cm closer to my initial goal: only rely on myself while playing.
A month ago, little young fool, I didn‘t know back then, that when tapping into electronic stuff you leave yourself entirely up to the gods…

Day 31. After 10 days of:

 

  1. Sobbing reading the manual 
  2. Familiarizing myself with the whole internet 
  3. Watching this video (!!!) by Non Standart Music Japan 
  4. Riverdancing on my pedals to get anything out of them 
  5. Trying and retrying 
  6. Adding „for idiots“ at the end of…

Day 29. The Manual

Day 25. Feeling like a zookeeper

Day 24. oh my god and all his archangels

I did it, I programmed the foot pedal!

Cutting corners for the win, just Loopy and Behringer, just MIDI learn!

Hands free looping session, the very first, very convenient, very fail-prone, full of screw-ups and fun, screen-recorded right…

Day 22. New addition

to my super professional home studio. It‘s the Behringer MIDI foot controller, a monster machine that‘s half my size and a third of my weight. I haven’t got a chance to try it out yet, because I had to wait…

Day 21. Sometimes it just needs to be recorded 

The initial plan was to dissect and recreate my favourite songs to the best of my ability — just for exercise. 

I love Genesis. I cannot tell Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel apart, but over time they morphed in…
