Everything and Nothing / RIP Richard Wright
« on: September 15, 2008, 09:14:23 AM »
Just heard that Rick Wright died after a short bout of cancer. This is a huge loss. His keyboards, particularly with the early Floyd (1968-1972) were a big influence on me. He was certainly a pioneer in ambient keyboard sounds even though that wasn't his intention. Those early Klaus Schulze albums that revolve around the Farfisa owe a large debt to Wright. I'm going to spin Atom Heart Mother now.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / BeatMaker for the iPhone
« on: July 22, 2008, 10:22:34 AM »
I just downloaded this program yesterday for the iPhone and it's pretty amazing what you get for $19.99. A drum machine/step sequencer/drum sample editor. It also includes some effects, and you can save create and save drum kits and patterns/songs. You can also export these wirelessly to your computer in their native format or as a Wav file. If you've got an iPhone and like drum machines you can't go wrong with this: http://intua.net/

Computers, Internet and Technology / Twitter

Anyone here on Twitter? If you're not already familiar with Twitter, it's basically for sharing short thoughts or interacting with others using a limit of 140 characters per message. Kind of like "micro-blogging." Anyway, I've been starting to use the site based on the company I work for but would like to connect with any other musicians on there. You can find me on Twitter, here:
