What a cool greeting by all of you! THANKS \:\)
Today has been a great day as I got over a really annoying bout with Midi Hell. I have been trying to work in my studio on my next solo album and have been tortured by stuck notes popping out from nowhere! This morning I rewired both my MTP AV's and replaced the memory batteries and switched their chained positions, and to my relief, I am back in action. I was really considering changing my project to an all piano album for last couple of days. Computers!!! Ugh..

Somebody mentioned the Continuum earlier. What a fantastic instrument that is. A real dream come true for me. I always dreamed of playing a fretless keyboard and although you can't really play this the same way you would a keyboard, it is related enough that it brings that vision to life.
I have been using it with a lead type approach mostly so far, since I happened to dial in a couple of wicked cool patches on the Roland V-synth for it, but it is capable of so much more. Hopefully I will have time to turn some more dials and practice the Continuum some more. Together with Lippold Haken the designer we thought of a way that allows pitch rounding (quantization) on your slides, so that when you slide your finger to a new note, it can automatically adjust the pitch to the closest half step. The vibrato is so smooth, kinda like a violin approach. You can choose the speed of rounding which is cool. http://www.hakenaudio.com for more details and a video (a while ago) of me playing it on the examples page!

Some other cool things I have been playing with lately:

The VP-550 Roland vocal keyboard. This is ridiculous.
It's silly how cool it is, and how great it sounds. It's also the favorite piece in my studio for my two daughters. They bring their friends in to see and hear it (and try it).

The new Oasys Pluck model. This is the latest update for the Oasys system. It is like playing with sonic silly putty. Stretch the sounds easily and musically with all the controllers. The beauty of this, is their model is capable of beautiful realism and then being able to change the shape of the sound in every possible way, just makes it a great musical experience!

I introduced the Moog Little Phatty a few weeks ago at MOOGFEST. This is a very cool offering from Moog.
I really dig the design of the instrument. It is extremely well thought out and I would recommend it to anybody who is Moogless and wants a cool/ small but together great sounding Moog.

At the moment I really happy because I downloaded the new MUSE-Thom York and Keane album's recently from Itunes. Some of my favorite rock music. As I write this I am listening to Muse.

Usually these days in my free time (not that much) I hunt down cool electronica for my ipod. I'm totally into that movement.
Stuff like Richard Devine's music- Proem-Autechre-Boards Of Canada to name a few. Anybody else into it?

That's about it for now. Stay inspired. Enjoy.

Goodbye fellow keyboard folk.
Musically,
Jordan

Hmmmm... guess I was wrong. ;\)

So, allow me to join the others who were less suspicious, and extend a warm welcome to the forum, Jordan.

Very cool... first Steve Nathan joins our community, and now you make an appearance. Hope to see you around when you have time... we've got a pretty great family of players here. \:\)

No, I did that, actually... but I assumed that it was his webmaster dropping by to drum up visitors for the new site, which was recently redone. Seen that way too many times on the 'net. ;\)

Just as an aside, Jordan and I will be performing another electronic Space Jam next Saturday in Rockland County, our first for a live audience and our first with projected visuals. It's a very small theater and the show is already sold out, so I won't post the details here, but I thought some of you might appreciate the poster we created for the show:



Some of the folks we've shown it to don't get it, but I suspect the denizens of this board will.

We'll be both recording the show and videotaping it in HD, so perhaps we'll be able to release a document of the performance at some point.

I LOVE these guys! Particularly BoC. I have BoC on at work all the time and a few folks around here actually even can recognize a few of the tunes when they come on (Julie and Candy, for example). I bounce around between the Alternative and Electronic sections of iTunes all the time, always trying to find new tunes with a 30-second audition (not like the old days where you basically had to just buy the record based on word of mouth or a hope and a prayer).

Some other favorites of mine (just in case you haven't already heard one or two of them): Royksopp, Richard Devine, Ulrich Schnauss (less experimental, but still very cool synth work), Future Sound of London, and, of course, Brian Eno.

Welcome, Jordan. It really is great to have you here. Looking forward to your new album!

Cheers,
Mark

Apparently, the world is full of people who don't know what a "patchcord" is.

Oooh, Autechre, really? Umm... don't read my old posts, I can be a bit callous, but I really dig the instructional stuff, it's been fantastic, and really helped me form into more of a real player. Great to hear your takes on gear, and welcome aboard!

Ha ha, very cool poster; Leone and Eastwood would be proud - even though most people don't have a clue about "patch cords". \:D

BTW - are you going to use mainly modular stuff at that concert?

I guess that makes me an "Old Fart." I remember when the patchcords were used. I still refer to the sounds on my synth as "Patches."

Cool Poster.

Not mainly, but Jordan\'s DotCom will be there.

Jordan will be playing his MiniMoog D, MiniMoog Voyager, and a Little Phatty; I'll be playing Arturia MMV on a PowerBook and G-Media MiniMonsta on a Muse Receptor; and we'll both be playing the modular.

Yo Jordan - saw you guys on the RAVE channel in glorious hi-def TV last week. Amazing stuff! Nice to have you join us mere mortals ;\) Hope you can stick around and let some of your knowledge/skills rub off on us.

Cheers,
:DTR

Some times MIDi is mind boggling. In the old days I would work really hard on getting so much out music of one or maybe two machines.
Now my life has changed and I am trying to balance many technologies simultaneously while making music. (juggling anyone)?
I finally am started to get this studio tamed a bit though. I'm working on my next solo album. Big project for sure. I will fill you all in on it fairly soon.

Best to everyone!!

Now it's time to get some rest as I have a MOOG space concert in NY tomorrow night.

Musically,
J

The midi thing gets very complex when using multiple controllers.
I don't recommend it to the novice! Actually, I don't know if I would recommend it to anyone!! Tonight I had a great time playing a very intimate live space jam concert in Valley COttage NY with Richard Lainhart. I played the Moogs but also brought my Roland V-synth.
It fit the mood perfectly. That is one cosmic machine.

Over and out,
JR

Welcome to the KC Jordan. Nice to see that you've chosen to drop in with some frequency.
The conversation's always lively around here and your perspective will be most appreciated.

I must admit, it's pretty cool for people you respect to drop in and spit some verse about whatever from time to time. Thanks for coming by, J. Rude!
