He is suffering from loss of eyesight and he has other things going wrong, all of which have affected his ability to do what he loves to do….


pianoscaper Has You All Kinds of Relaxed

Yes, that is correct, I did not forget to capitalize the name of that app. Rob Jackson has a thing for ambient sound. I’ve seen his videos where he has made great use of Borderlands Granular Synth and Animoog, and he can make some great soundscapes. It came as no surprise to me that when…

What’s Old Is New Again(Vintage Sounds for Modern Musicians)

Trends seem to cycle. This is true in just about every aspect of culture. Granted, there’s always a variation on a theme, something to modernize it a bit more, if you will. Sometimes, it takes modern technology to recreate something vintage. When I first discovered software synthesizers, I thought that this was a great learning…


Korg Does It Again with iWavestation

I guess the old cliché is true, absence makes the heart grow fonder. I had spent approximately three months away from writing on this blog, with many false starts, only to realize that I just wasn’t ready to begin.

New Project: My First App

Here I go again, yet another project! This is the problem with a restless creative mind, I have more ideas than time in which to complete them. It seems I never fully finish one project before starting another. The good news for me is, since this is a labor of love, I have no deadlines….

Update: Where Have I Been?

Hey folks, I do very much apologize for the long hiatus on my blog and subsequently, my YouTube channel. You see, I have been dealing with some personal things that have prevented me from being creative and/or motivated to be passionate about my interests.

The Hard/Soft Option Pt. 5

Hey folks! I apologize for the long delay between posts. I’ve been really busy with some personal obligations since my last post. I’m still in the middle of working on these obligations, but I finally have an update on things. In our last installment, I went over the strengths of the Modstep app, and talked…


I’m Baaaaaack

That’s right, aside from one post last week, I’ve been on vacation. Most of the reason I hadn’t been posting is because I…er…was…working. That’s right, I spend my time off work painting houses. Believe it or not, it was quite relaxing, AND I got paid to do it. This was worth it to me because…
