    Hey, thanks for MPC tips. Now I'm experiencing some serious buyer's regret as I realised my looper doesn't have a midi input. Argh, I should've gone for the 45000! I will investigate JJOSXL but $120 seems a bit steep for an OS on an instrument I *might* start using more. My only other option is to perfect the art of self-quantising πŸ˜€
    But anyway, bloody excellent stuff from you this year. Hi5!

  • @amelea Mar 1

    I saw your comment on @thelowestbitter and @judypie's collab "Click" comparing it to Sleigh Bells, and just want to say hi. That got me excited.

    If I didn't have Spanish class tonight I'd have definitely attempted to throw another couple of tracks together!

  • @shortdan  Feb 28

    Just the beats and arpeggiated synth are the modular. Michael Cohen was arranged in Ableton (and pitch shifted with Melodyne!). The bass stuff is one of the patches for the new Wavetable instrument in Ableton.

    Thanks very much for your thoughtful feedback on my songs, especially on Mend. FAWM has been super helpful for me and just so inspiring. I stepped away from it last week and am diving into all of your songs now! <3

  • @petemurphy  Feb 22

    Thanks for giving me that song title the other day. I've written a song with it and everything. Haven't had chance to do much music the last few days, wife's birthday, etc, but will get a demo done soon. I did think about Comfortably Dumb, but Definitely Dumb won out in the end.

  • @angelinapowersuit Feb 20

    Thanks so much for your feedback on "Live Again!" The Oooohs were actually the hardest part of the song to sing, haha.

  • @petemurphy  Feb 19

    In fact you've just given me an idea for a new song - 'Definitely Dumb'

  • @petemurphy  Feb 19

    Haha, thanks.
    Your comment made me laugh 'til I coughed. I'm definitely dumb enough to make a musical version of Dumb And Dumber!

  • @atitlan  Feb 18

    Thanks for the comment on 'Drowned Cities' - the idea in the lyrics was from lag in CO2 in the atmosphere and the full effect hitting; the fact that a certain amount of sea level rise is already baked in. I always like the way people can make unexpected links and seeing Ballard in the comment raised a smile.

  • @kissinginpublic  Feb 15

    The Woods was a Rumpus track... "I'll find me a cowboy, out there in the woods". I thought of them as I typed it 😁

  • @zecoop  Feb 15

    Thank you so much for taking the time and leaving such a nice comment. Whoa, I am way behind on your songs (and lots of others on my watchlist). Looks like you are having a great FAWM - I'm going to catch up a little. πŸ˜€

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 10

  • @lanasolyluna Feb 10

    Thanks!! Can’t wait to listen to your stuff.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 10

    Love your soundboard photo. Need to catch up on listening! Thanks for your comment!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 7

    Thanks for listening! πŸ˜€

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 6

    I haven't seen that, but will check it out. The whole electro thing is pretty new to me, but I'm enjoying experimenting.

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 6

    hey- wanted to send a virtual hug your way, and say also, thank you for starting that pronoun thread, not sure if you saw but it inspired a song, you might get a smile out of... best! πŸ˜€

  • @cairobraga  Feb 6

    [hugging, might or might not be softly crying]

  • @cairobraga  Feb 6

    can I give you a long and heartfelt hug, Anya?

  • @alyxanderjames  Feb 6

    I just wanted to say - thanks for starting the pronouns thread. Your music is great, and so are you. <3

  • @shortdan  Feb 6

    Alas the guitar wasn't running through the modular on that one. Just NI Guitar Rig with the cheesiest 80s rock solo preset I could find! I 'have' however been experimenting with recording electric guitar loops into the Morphagene (virtual tape machine) and messing with them in there. I worked on a track all last night in fact only to discover it was unlistenable to 4 hours down the line 😒

  • @judypie  Feb 5

    Haha well.. they are real chords according to my chord book but am I playing them correctly? Well very possibly not 😝 verses are mainly Dm7 to G and back. Choruses Em, D7 and E7.

  • @paulh1237  Feb 4

    Bamboo socks are the best! I got musical ones for Christmas, twas glorious (as in musical imagery, they don't make the sounds so much)

  • @jackdawfactories  Feb 4

    Hah, that's true. I went to see 65dos in June (just before NMS Next dropped) and they played Supermoon and Debutante (prefacing the latter with "this is a song that a generation of disappointed teenagers will forever associate with dinosaurs")

  • @jackdawfactories  Feb 4

    Thank you so much for the E:D comment! that would be a hell of a privilege.

  • @owl  Feb 3

    Ha! Not even thinking about that until March.
