Latest Release

Turn Around

I sampled and chopped a classic funk song, then added real synthesizers and drum machines! Here is the result!

fun with synths

Sometimes I enjoy starting a loop on one synth and seeing where it goes with the rest. Check out the results of my latest adventure!

MPC X Live Looping

Putting together a little loop on the MPC X (https://amzn.to/2oraMFQ) . This one starts with a shaker groove to set up the tempo. I then lay down a chordal melody on my Fodera Emperor Standard Classic 5. I’m using an Aguilar AG700 (https://amzn.to/2Izkg8Q). The beat comes next courtesy a Vermona DRM MKIII analog drum machine. I finish up with a dreamy arp on the Behringer Deepmind 12D (https://amzn.to/35i9k9o) and some phat Moog Bass from the Sub37 (https://amzn.to/2M0QZ9b). The Fodera comes back out for a tasty little solo to take it home!

Stay tuned to this page, as many tracks will be pre-released in anticipation of a fulll release in 2020.
