The (trivial) setup in Reaper

Back in the music lab again…Recording my latest and greatest masterpiece… It is yet ‘untitled’  Maybe I’ll just keep that name for the record. Uh……..?

I must begin by saying that getting this 6 year old macbook is improving my lab tremendously. I have sought out to do some DAW recording now that it’s the computer age…But the PC hassles just seemed to be too much… I had recorded other songs.. Like one that my friend Neal wrote.

It was recorded on a PC using Reaper DAW software. It came out pretty good.

Read about and download the song

At any rate… I was having to many troubles at the time… And no energy to fight the computer issues…

I actually have some rough mixes of basic tracks available for download. Including the one above… If your interested.  I may blog about each one of them one of these days… – Whatever

All I know for sure is that those tracks can never be finished because I had the files stored on an external hard drive that was stolen by a past acquaintance.  Hey… I luv them dudes and dudettes from my past… I just can’t chill that way anymore…

Why?

There’s to much life left in me…  Ya know what I’m sayen?

So.. I have a 2008 Macbook… A Shure SM58…. An LP worth of electronica that I worked up with Acid  years ago…And a fresh copy of licensed Reaper installed.  And I’m laying down tracks… Cause Macbook and Reaper is where it’s at.

Hey…What else is there to do? I got something to say after all!

Do YOU?

Send me some files of you saying silly stuff… I put it on top of these techno tracks… Ya know? Blah blah blah…..

Demented Dave – D&G Arts Solo Project

Back in the early days here in Tulsa OK my friend Gary Hunt and myself shared a house over by Tulsa University… We

were *like* college kids…But didn’t go to school at TU. You know what I’m saying?

Yes folks…We were right there on campus.

We were a bunch of kids thinking we would make a difference in Tulsa pop culture.. We were the underground music kids. We were busy working out our sexual frustrations and tortured youth with a Fostex 4 track recorder.

We drank beer, wrote songs, drank beer wrote songs, drank beer, wrote songs.

Do you see the pattern here?

We talked about art and dreamed big… And, you know? Had fun!

Are you interested in learning more about it? See here:

D&G ARTS

That is an old static html site I designed years ago that talks a bit about that period… It has several songs for download if your into that sort of thing… They are all LoFi stuff of course. – To us, back then…They were HIGH FI

We were cutting records after all… Ya dig?

Halloween is in the air again… And, well… It’s The DEVILS HOLIDAY!
That about sum’s it up right? I could end this post right here and now and make my point beautifully.

But that’s no fun… You know how much this blogger enjoys talking about Satan.

What happens on Halloween?

Let’s see here… I read this description on a Christian Website that I googled:
