ask jon or rob / Re: Death of conversation?

Ha!  I wish it were.   I just wrote a thread about the moving of my studio.  the good news is that it is easier for me to record and make music than it has ever been before!  The bad news is that I feel like I have less time to do this.  I will finish this as soon as I can.  I have versions of all the songs that I am constantly listening to in my car and making notes as to what I want to add or change.  Things are getting tighter and more refined.

ask jon or rob / time really does fly

It is crazy how time consuming life can be.

After getting remarried this summer, I had moved to a different house.  It has taken 9 months to get the studio moved, organized, wired, and working.  One of the reasons that this has taken longer than usual is that there is more equipment to fit in and wire than there ever has been before.  Also, I am now a step dad of 2 wonderful children.  In addition to a new larger space, I bought several pieces of gear from my friend Ben who was downsizing his studio...

recently added gear:
   
I am mostly excited about a Yamaha CP-60M electric piano.  It is a fully working acoustic piano with wonderful pickups inside, a great preamp, and a 1/4" jack output.  It sounds amazing!

I also got a smaller timpani to use live since the one I was using was so big that I needed to remove the door from the studio to get it into the space.

I ended up buying the Make Noise 0-coast and the MFB Dominion-1 synthesizers which are both incredible. 

The new space is very large and I have everything set up and wired in.  I also have microphones hard wired to channels of a mixer so I don't even have to get mics out to record - I can just turn on the channels for drums, vocals, etc.  it is very convenient.

I am back to the point where I am working on Death of Conversation.  In the move, I can't seem to find my lyric notebook and have been rewriting new lyrics for these songs. BLAH!  things could be worse. 

On a totally different note, several months ago, my email at jon@  for my artoftravelogue -dot -c  o   m was hacked and I have been blacklisted from sending or replying to anything and everyone.  I have no idea how to fix this.  I immediately changed passwords and checked to see if any financial access had been compromised.   It hadn't - but it does make me nervous.  I may need to just close this email and set up a bunch of new emails, keeping logins separate from replies, and so forth.  If you have any thoughts or suggestions on how to get out of blacklists for emails, please reply to this post.

There is now a mega man level designer available for PC, very much similar to the concept which mario maker.
It was released in july, so it is still really new and limited to some degree in options.
You can get it here.

Hooray! It's finally out! I'm looking forward to getting the full early recordings release once I've ponied up a bit of cash. :) I just listened to "Fish" for the first time in a while the other day and was reminded how much I dig how weird you guys' early stuff is.

YAY!!! 

it is nice to finally start getting stuff out there.  There is so much to go through regarding the back catalog that it is a bit overwhelming to be honest.  I recorded A TON of stuff back in the 90's.  I think that compiling groups of songs into albums and releasing them one at a time is the best way to make steps toward making the back catalog available.

Glad that you are enjoying these so far.  :)
