I have to say MANY THANKS to ALL of you who have given me the much needed FEEDBACK here on this (my website) – I have spent YEARS on Facebook; simply being Blocked, Deleted, Ignored and generally Ridiculed by TOO MANY!!! – All of YOU who have taken the time to give me feedback here have made spending the money on my own domain(s) MORE than WORTH it!!!

The IT WORLD and MUSIC PRODUCTION
Over the years, most of the world has watched the technology develop. I can remember in my youth when the backbone of many synthesisers was a master tone generator, or a collection of analog oscillators, and a piano keyboard; nowadays, it is a small computer – with interfaces such as MIDI, Firewire and USB being commonplace in todays state-of-the-art hardware.
As the technology with most consumer/ commercial/ military hardware has improved, so has the technology around computers – with the arrival of what can be best described as a ‘C64 Revival’; (“Commodore 64 rises from the 80s | News | PC Pro,” n.d.) a sleek new client computer that has all the features of most of today’s towers included Inside the Keyboard!!!
In the music production side of the computer world there has been a small revolution, with the evolution especially of a software protocol called ReWire; it works not only with REASON (by propellerheads software) but with a growing list of music/media production related software applications – this subject is covered in more detail in another article. But among the greats are Steinberg (“Home : Welcome to Steinberg | http://www.steinberg.net/,” n.d.), Ableton(“Music production with Live 9 and Push | Ableton,” n.d.);
MORE INNOVATIVE STUFF; Add RESOURCEFULNESS to TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION and YOU WILL
– just Stop thinking that you
and some MORE stuff…
Detailed here is my OWN version of a talk-box (under construction) – my academic life has me too busy (yet) to get (back) into creating any sounds but I am hoping to find some spare time during this summer (2014) to do some (more) stuff; this time, I plan to use this gizmo to assist in my creation of some more renditions! – I do not yet consider myself to be really a music/media producer, although I am sure that there are and will be a lot of people out there who are soon going to recognize me as one! …Busy, I have been with the Network and IT side of the picture; my philosophy being that it is great to build CD racks as well as to create CD’s – that way, I can promote/market the works of others and hopefully find a system of mutual ‘back scratching’ unfold from there…
THE FIRST THING NEED TO START BUILDING STUFF IS LUMBER!!!
A link to a page on the propellerheads website; detailing ReWire; (“Propellerhead – Reason – List of ReWire capable software,” n.d.)
From the angle of an amateur rendition artist and entrepeneur, I have found the same old picture of machines getting faster but the whole picture being hampered by LAN speed issues when working with network drives; waiting ten, twenty or more minutes for a project to load from a network place. When innovations such as Active Directory and Encryption are used there is AGAIN an argument that All of the LAN across the studio(s) must be at Least a 1Gbps connection – With at LEAST an i7 equivalent for ALL workstations within the organization.
