I'm NEVER doing playback anymore..

no the cd didn't skip but I was quite drunk and everybody could see I wasn't playing live.

And drinking and playing live.. well, that's another story

I did a gig this weekend with playback and it did not go very well to put it mildly. I think there are two main reasons why it fucked up. First one first which was my own fault. I've never done a gig before and the promoter said they wanted bands with little need of gear so I thought:easy! I'll do playback (another thing.. YOU know what YOU need, get what you need if you get it don't play. You get fucked, not the promoter.). As I mentioned before, everybody could see I wasn't really playing live. That's not a good thing

The other thing which I believe fucked things up for me was that the introducer said I was a young talented artist from Bergen who produces trance and have a JUST faboulous voice. "Today he is going to sing and perform his song."

I DON't SING!! I HAVE NEVER SUNG IN MY LIFE!! WHY! HOW!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to put the blame on other. I was responsible but the last one, fuck, who could I avoid it?

I don't know what I would have done with out my supporting friends backing me up and cheering like mad in the front. Cos, to be honest there wasn't a lot of cheering except from them. I managed to get some ok cheering at some points with some heavily clapping in the air (Yeah I know it's cheesy but what was I to do?) but then I forgot to play the keyboard, hehe.

There was a pretty big audience too, maybe 300 and I was unvoluntary picked out to *kick* off the show.

Anyway, this experience didn't turn my wish for playing live, but I'm NEVER EVER using playback again. By the way, this was my first gig ever.

Give me your flames and comfort. Especially comfort because I need it

I kinda look a bit humorous on it but it still sucks

sorry. But just look at the tread "Can't get my compressor to pump".. some dance music needs heavy compression to sound right.

i've wiped enough decube covered parapalegic asses to know that. sometimes i still sorta wish my ex would get over it enough to give me a ring or something.

i don't use compression on drums. yeah, yeah.. "i patch 'em right in the first place.." and i'll still be saying that when the only person who knows my name is the person looking at it on the chart on my door.

xoxos, you use too many difficult words.. they aren't in my dictionary and my dictionary is really big!  

I try to patch 'em right in the first place too but it usually sounds even better when I've run the mix through mastering. I usually don't use compression before mastering.. noise gate on the other hand is my secret tool.. ahh, I love the noise gate..

After mastering the sound is more "filling" or "tighter" ..

Hmm.. I think I'm gonna try to gate out the white noise on my recordings.. hmm.. maybe

fu!k I have to study for my exams.. maths and physics.. the two subjects which I suck the most at. Congratulations to me!

math + physics = a lot more interesting after you get into synthesis.

it's my spelling, man, it's paraplegic, not parapalegic. it's that damn hiphopping frog got to me. paraplegia=paralysis of the lower half of the body, quadra- = the wohle body.

and continuing in my "i'm so happy i can use vst now i'm ignoring that everyone else already knows about them" theme, here's a link to skidder, which is some really goooood gating for ya (tho not dynamics based.)
