  1. no - everything is locked together already timewise. i am working within the reaper project that IOS created that contains the MD/MM/MPC audio. i've just been writing midi in reaper to control the G2. once that is complete then i will just hit record and it will record all the G2 audio in one pass. i was trying to get that done this weekend but reaper was giving me a lot of problems. hopefully next week it will be done. once my part is done then i will pass it back to IOS and everything will need compression and mastering. that will take some time to get done & get the relative levels right.
  2. made some good progress this weekend. i will have my part done in 2 weeks. 🎹 📅 ⏰
  3. it'll get done, don't worry. i work 10 hour days with an hour commute each way, so weekdays are out. i only have weekends to work on this and if i have errands or other things to get done, then that eats into the time i have available. it's slow going & tedious work but i have the whole set blocked out start to finish in a rough fashion, and now i'm going in working on the finer details, which is the harder part actually. i'm not going to give an eta but i'm closer to the finish than the start, if that makes sense. trust me, no one wants this to be completed more than me!
  4. ok - gotta share this anecdote: i never met Keith, but a girl i went to college with was good friends with him since way back in the day. one time he was visiting her in san francisco and they were driving around town. this was sometime in the mid-nineties. they were driving by this nice hotel and my friend looks over at this guy who was getting out of his car and does a double-take... is that... it is! it was Steve Jobs. my friend says to Keith "hey that's Steve Jobs!" i don't know if Keith even knew who Steve was at the time but Keith looks over, rolls down the passenger window, sticks his whole upper body out and shouts "Oi! Steve!!!" Steve Jobs looks up all startled, sees Keith grinning crazily at him, and spins around - runs into the hotel without a word. rip Keith. haven't heard from anyone with a single bad thing to say about the man & that says a lot about him.
  5. pre-ordered the korg minilogue xd. this is the first time in my life that i've actually bought a synth new! taking a serious look at the microfreak as well, but waiting to see some more reviews once it is released before i make a decision on that one. not planning to get the akai force but i can see how that would fill a longstanding need for some people. the true 'ableton live in a box' that the octatrack was made out to be by some. definitely the future of the whole mpc line. with those 3 units being the first time i've been excited about hardware in a long time, i can't really complain too much about this namm.
  6. this would be a question for IOS, as most of the work on this is his. i am just recreating the nord g2 parts.
  7. Elektron have outside investors now so they have to keep the money men happy. For a long time now everything they have released has been with the aim of expanding their market and appealing to a wider audience. I see a lot of volca / teenage engineering envy. Trying to copy what others are doing, motivated by money concerns, rather than innovate or work on their flagship machines, which have bugs that need to be addressed, not to mention the overbridge fiasco. The company has lost its way big-time. Reminds me of Apple focusing on the general consumer and ignoring their power users, the artists and designers. I'm sure it is financially rewarding for them, but they no longer speak to my needs. It's sad because their stuff used to be so good.
  8. I am continuing the work that IOS started. I am working within the Reaper project that he gave me.
  9. the nord stuff is about 70% done. it's tedious work, actually. first listen to the recording, then mute it & listen to what the nord is doing, figure out which of the 8 variations is active for each of the 4 slots in the nord, figure out when the transitions happen from variation to variation, draw the midi cc automation in Reaper for the volume & variation changes in the patches. the trouble comes when i can't get the nord to quite match whats going on in the recording, which means something else is being tweaked on the nord. filter? resonance? adsr envelopes? or does the midi data from the mpc need to be muted temporarily? lots of trial and error and a/b comparison. listening to the same parts over & over, trying to get it to match up as well as i can. at the same time it can be fun to play detective & figure out how certain sounds are being made. i'm looking forward to really digging into these patches after i'm done with the reconstruction & seeing how they work. in the meantime, here's a minimal dub quaristice versions style remix i made before i started working on the reconstruction. this is just the mpc. i was going thru the sequences figuring out how they were organized. things started sounding cool so i hit record: AELIVE2008_MPC_RMIX.01
  10. Really good stuff, Modey! Love the textures you're getting from the overdrive.
  11. i'm going to have a ton of remixes of the mpc & nord stuff when i'm done with the reconstruction. maybe some remixes of the monomachine stuff as well. there are a lot of lush melodies & textures that got buried in the bootleg recording that need to be heard.
  12. i'm working on it but it will be a couple weeks probably. weekends are the only time i have to work on this properly. the g2 stuff is complex + i'm learning reaper at the same time. so far, it's coming along quite faithful to the recording.
