Anyone else a musician or music maker of some kind? I make experimental electronic music myself.
Nice I'm a electronic DJ & a producer myself. Have been doing both since 2002.
I'm checking out some of your mixes right now! It looks like we don't live too far from each other. :)
Enjoy! Where in Cali are you Joey? I just finished checking out your tracks Mutable is my favorite. What programs, VSTs, analog synths/modulars do you use? Very heavy on the granular side [obviously] lol.
I do everything except recording and post-production in Pure Data. It's amazing and I can pretty much achieve anything I can imagine (and things I'd never imagine) with it! I'm in Fontana, so if you're still in San Bernardino, then we aren't far away at all. I ended up sampling quite a few of your mixes the other day. I like the variety, but I'm a sucker for psytrance, so I appreciated those mixes most.
Nice! I haven't heard of PD surprisingly enough despite it being around for so long. I'll have to check it out though it looks like it relies heavily on Max. I would probably just rather stick to Reason. Yeah I'm still in Berdo lol. I have quite a few more psy mixes that I need to upload that are in need of podcast hosting. I might end up hosting the mixes myself once I get around to starting my own podcast. I'll be sure to send you a link to the show once it's up & running. If there's any tracks that you would like to hear mixed feel free to kick them down via WeTransfer or any other file sharing site of your choice.
Pd doesn't rely on Max, but it is programmed by one of the developers of Max. Miller Puckette was tired of the corporate/proprietary ownership of Max and the problems of developing that way, so he decided to write a similar program, but open source. So that's what Pd is. It's an open source program that's similar to Max, but also unique. It being open source is one of the best parts about it, IMO.
Unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time for discovering new music in the past few years. I've kind of been consumed by my own project. I do appreciate all the great DJs out there who are always on top of putting great tracks together. :)
I'm all for open source. I wanted to get into Open MPT as well, but never got around to it.
Feel free to drop some old tracks. Oldies are goodies. ;)
