A few samples from my Simon Harris Battle DJ vinyl and CD rips, attached to a delay. The effect is to soften the techno or tech-house vibe and add a bit of funk. I really didn't use the backing track at all. If that's the case I might as well move over to the session view with columns and cells and stuff.
Well there's one for the books, I was more looking forward to the jog than I was the live stream. I had no preparation. This week I'm focusing on the Daw. I want to get some drum racks with DJ battle scratches and loops, some fx racks. Maybe live can provide distortion for the jp and maybe some delays.
The Daw and The Dawless:
I swing both both ways, I want to go completely hard sometimes and only use live as the sync. Other times I go completely soft and ... Ok enough of that.
Two hour set from a one hour backing track, that's one hour of improv! See, I told you it would work, and in the first week!
Ok so not smooth in that a listener can probably pick out the prepared stuff over the live improv, but it's all music and it worked well.
Next week I'll focus on the DAW Ableton, now that I'm happy with the direction the studio is taking. I'll load up some loops midi and audio and start working on how I can transpose two synths at the same time and how to move out of one groove and into another.
Forgot my finger drumming lessons on melodics today. Dammit. Well I just need to beat 3 days in a row next time. No jogging today which is good, I'm still in pain from yesterday.
The stream went well. Kaizen. A little bit better than yesterday which was a little bit better than the day before.
