I spent a few days rewiring the studio and replacing my midi interface. A friend suggested that the midi through feature on some of the older synths could be the source of my midi jitter issues. By gum, I think he may have been right.
I also took the time to balance all the signals to minimise the amount of noise I get. I don’t want it to sound crystal clear or anything, but I’ve now killed as much noise as I care to.
I’ve also bought a few new (to me, not in general) synths that I’ll do some write ups for soon (ish).
I’ve not posted a review for a while – and long may that trend continue. However I was listening to some records tonight, and I remembered how much I liked this old house tune.
I don’t know too much about Mr. Josh Brent, other than he know calls himself Schatrax and releases cool house music.
Listen to these cool old tunes.
Josh Brent “As Long As I’ve Got You”
It’s electronic music with no compression. You heard me, zero compression.
I spent about half an hour today making this. It was really just a studio test to make sure everything was working ok after some upgrades. But I listened to it a few times, and I kinda like it. It’s not very polished, granted, but it’s got a cool cinematic vibe
From the ashes of “Untitled Render 05” rises a new EP called Burro / Kingston. Two dancehall, ragga inspired popping joints. It all started when I bought an LP called “Soundbwoy Super Status Reggae Breaks And Beats” at the same time as a Chinese distortion pedal.

I’m not going to write big descriptions, but both are Jamaican Patois, hard as fuck drums and synths and shit. I find it pretty interesting to release these little demos and then the final edit a few days later, it’s something I hope to keep up.
