I'm ensconced at an insanely fun water park resort that's crawling with bikini bottomed bathing bunnies. :weep:

And I'm not leaving until my allotted time is up. Don't bother sending the monkeys, I'll just hide under water.

Cause, like, monkeys don't like water.

I talked to him on facebook a few days ago. He just got the UAD card and I was asking him about it. I guess he's been busy or something :idk: he said he'd swing by sooner or later.

Him? Busy? pff. All he ever does is lay around recording albums, shooting prof quality videos from scratch, making websites...

What a slouch.

I may do this next week, if only to give myself a special excuse to clean the place up. :lol:

Let me see how the week pans out.

I hope they are humane bass traps? nothing but catch and release in our humble domicile.
Same with bass, they deserve to live as well, besides what do you do with a dead bass?

Oh..I forgot, according to Bernard I must squat when I pee. :lol:

Forum name:Purity Control, I don't gig or commercially release material but there is a lot of my stuff on Soundclick and Youtube under that name.

Style of music: Mostly dark electronic and early industrial, sometimes 'Switched On' arrangements of classical music, though I don't mind reinterpreting works from other genres.

Image

Image

Synths/Keys: Korg SP200, Roland Jupiter 6, Manikin Memotron, Doepfer modular
Effects: Lexicon MX300, Boss CE-20, MAM VF-11 vocoder, Effectrode tube phaser, Vox tube overdrive
Other: Spendor BC-1 monitors, Quad 33/303 amp, Mackie 1202 mixer, MIDI Solutions T8 & MIDI Merge, M-Audio Audiophile interface
Software: Oscillastation, Acoustica Mixcraft, Imposcar, Yamaha Vocaloid Prima

Image

Workflow: Usually compose on piano, practice until it's something like then record the MIDI into Oscillastation, then break down the individual parts and use Imposcar while I work out the arrangement, though I rarely record with Imposcar unless it really does a particular sound better than anything else. Then record each track individually and mix and tweak in Mixcraft

Favourite gear: Memotron, because it's a good escape from knobbage when you're feeling that way, sounds amazing and it's a great keybed too, really just nice to play, also the modular, which is the opposite of an escape from knobbage but when you want or need a sound that's totally bonkers, it's just what you want. 4 audio oscs patched as duophonic into 3 parallel bandpass filters modded by two sequencers - no problem. :thu:

The Spendor monitors are an ex-BBC pair and still have the BBC badges on the back, which is very cool, I got them as a bit of a cosmetic fixer upper and am still working on them, originally they would probably have been used with AM8/12 amps, which were a custom mod to BBC specifications of the domestic Quad setup of that era that I actually use with them. The 3 pedals on the floor under the main keyboard rig are the piano sustain, filter cutoff for the Jupiter and hold/sustain for the same, held in place by my patent anti-pedal creep device (a bit of wood with string through it :lol: ). Mostly the Jupiter gets played from the SP200 unless I'm using that to control the modular at the same time. I keep debating moving the SP200 to another room and getting a pedalboard for modular control, which would let me condense everything down to being all in front of me at the same time.

I need to spend a bit more quality time with it, but that is a lot of things.

Really working on my playing a lot atm, which is where it starts to get a lot more useful again.

Mine's a mess right now. No tidiness in sight for a few months, at least. The basement's painted at last, though. Next: suspended ceiling. That'll be a new one for me...

You name: Tarekith

Tell us what type or style of music you mainly produce: All styles of electronic, but mainly downtempo stuff. Examples here: http://tarekith.com/tracks/

List your gear both hardware and software:

i7 MacBook Pro, RME Fireface 400, Event Opals, Elektron Anniversary Machinedrum, Allen & Heath Xone62, Akai APC40, Kenton Killamix Mini, Akai MPK25, Parker Dragonfly, Line6 HD500.

Ableton Live, Apple Logic, Audiofile Wave Editor, Omnisphere, Stylus RMX, Synplant, + various plug ins.

Briefly describe your workflow:

Typically I write songs either entirely in Live or in Logic, just depends on which one I feel like looking at on a given day. A lot of times I'll start out with drums on the Machinedrum or in Stylus, and once those get recorded into the DAW, it's just a long process of jamming and recording the results to edit down and arrange later on. I work almost entirely with audio, even my softsynths get routed directly to an audio track and recorded that way right away.

Take your favorite 1 or 2 pieces of gear and tell us why it's your favorite:

Hands down my favorite is the Machinedrum, it not only sounds great and is extremely flexible, but it's made with live performance in mind. I've been playing live electronic music for almost 20 years now, so that's extremely important to me. Nothing comes close for long free form jams to me, and it's great for things that aren't drums too.

Briefly tell us any neat things about you or your studio that you want to:

While the studio primarily started out for my own music writing, for the last ten years I've been mastering and mixing all forms of electronic music for other artists. 2 years ago things got so busy, that I could turn it into my day job even. More info on that at http://innerportalstudio.com

As such, I don't like have a lot of gear in front of me that I'm not using for mastering, so most of that is on a table off to my side. All the USB and powercords for those items are all preconnected and hanging on hooks behind my main table, so it only takes me a few seconds to grab any piece and start using it.
