A Delicate Irritation:
Gadget can be used not only for beat driven EDM stuff but for just about anything that you can imagine. Here I am imagining a delicate melancholy; peaceful but with a darkness, if not looming, at least on the horizon. Perhaps a flower with just the first hint of decay.
Gadget fed into Dedalus, then into TwistedWave, then into Auria for mixing.

Straining Gnats With A Barbed Wire Canoe:
Another beat driven Gadget track again using Bilbao and Abu Dhabi to trigger samples, some my own and some built in. PPG Phonem gets it’s first outing today as one of those samples and my voice is hidden in there as well.
I find it a fun track, I hope you do to.

Yes it’s short, minimal, and soothing. It’s sweet and gentle; like a fine wine or the memory of favourite old times, like a dream during a nap on a sunny afternoon, like a sip of Bailey’s. Like a quiet smile.
All the sounds here were sampled from AnalogKit in AudioShare then loaded into Bilbao in Gadget via Dropbox; so expect to hear them again in other situations. The final song was exported to AudioShare and treated with AUFX:Dub.
May your day be simple and sweet.

Silent Sound – featuring Trudi McBoody:
Another Gadget foray into the land of beats and bass, this time with a little spoken word thrown in thanks to the ever fictional Trudi McBoody.
Most sounds were made in Gadget, though today I used iFretless Bass as a midi controller to record the second bass line. I added a little AUFX:Dub in AudioShare before I decided to try that second bass, so I exported just that track and used Auria to mix the two parts together.
Then I felt it needed some words so I called in Trudi. In the form of iSpeech TTS and TwistedWave.

Becky (For What It’s Worth):
Something a bit different today, a track made entirely with guitar; though sifted through my iPad mania.
I recently got my beautiful 12 string electric guitar back after 2 years of separation and this is the result of our first play together. I haven’t changed the strings yet, and one broke as I tuned it up, I just plugged into my iPad with AudioShare and BiasFX and we got reacquainted for a while. It’s a little rough, you can hear how my hands aren’t used to this anymore but that imperfection lends a little charm, to my ears at least.
Anyway, I effected it with FLUX:FX, put it into Auria where I rearranged it a bit, then I did my little fav trick of slowing it down in TwistedWave before adding some occasional delay with AUFX:Dub.
