It’s been awhile since I’ve last updated. Owning a business consumes your time…sometimes your soul. In my case, both.
The minimal time I have found here and there, I was able to give Pro Tools 9 a shot. I figured that with all the “professionals” out there using it, I said fuck it and gave it a run for it’s money.
Well, to sum things up, it’s no longer on my MacBook Pro. I didn’t like the way it was setup. Sure, if I gave it enough time, I’m sure incould have acclimated to it, but when I’m so familiar with Logic 8, there was no reason to keep trying.
I have, however, recently installed Ableton Live 8 as it was recommended by my friend Sean of Cyanotic fame.
So far, I enjoy it! It was very easy to get my head around and it works perfectly fine. I haven’t tried recording audio yet, but I feel it will do that just fine.
I think the only thing I don’t like is the fact it doesn’t have a sort of “track view” that I’m so used to using in Logic, Sonar, Cubase etc etc.
That said, I still have very little time to get audio work done, but I look forward to the day that I will!
I’m hoping and shooting for late Feb/early March to really buckle down. I might pick up Native Instrument’s Maschine. I’ll see what kind of return policy it has first, just in case.
I am also excited for NAMM on 1/19. I really love hearing about new gear! The new Akai MPC renaissance looks really nice! This is the only thing I’ve seen a glimpse of though that’s being shown off at NAMM.
That about wraps things up for what’s been going on. I will say I have worked more on my script for this children’s movie I’ve been writing for a year now. It’s coming along nicely, but I did hit another brick wall again, ideas wise. Those walls come down fast though, so it’s only a matter of time till I pick up where I left off.
Soooo, till next time!
