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

I know about vst plugins but I haven't really started using them yet.. *yet*. I keep hearing horror stories about talents getting lost in the jungle of vst plugins constantly downloading new and intriging plugins
Hey.. that skidder was cool. I think you can get some really out of space results with it.. just had a break from my studies and I played around with it.. mucho fun. I took this mellotron sample and added skidder to it.. oh my god, pretty god damn cool. Listen ok?

You could get one of those Paia kits or maybe even better try to build one from scratch.

What about rebuilding all you real analogs in to one mega modular beast? Don't know if it would possible.. but it would be cool.. having an analog hybrid or summat

i've only really got one analog (pro-one, with one minor mod for s/n ratio) modded the fuck out of a dr110 - very rewarding.. got a kpr77 read6y to go.. built a fucked up little thing that made noises, got a few other circuits lying around.. hobby, really.. don't know what i'm doing.. other people here do.
but dsp is something i need to do.. i'll never get rich off music, and i'll probably never write more than two or three songs that sound even remotely similar. too boring. my purpose in life is to make unreal claims to inspire those who haven't done any shit to learn something, do something.. improve their pathetic selves. i can never enjoy life because the people are too stupid.
i give myself to you and your needs.
and god save me from the people who are here to help other people :p
oh and i got a box that has a pad you hit to make it clap. i'm gonig to donate it to somebody who likes to go to the theater but doesn't have two arms or something. hell, i'll save it, that could be me.

Everybody wants to get rich.. I just wanna be more or less wealthy and have time to make choons.
Will you be rich making vst synths?
Not knowing what you're doing sometimes actually can be better when you are gonna do something. Dunno why really.. hehe.. but I think it's a fact
"i can never enjoy life because the people are too stupid. i give myself to you and your needs. "
That could be misinterpreted
