About

I like many styles of music but most of my own productions tend towards jazz with electronic elements. I play the Akai EWI4000s electric wind instrument, recorders, harmonicas, and various software instruments including Propellerhead Reason on the PC and NanoStudio on the iPad.

You can find more of my music here:

    @oldlibmike: Not really. A lot of it should be familiar from NanoStudio - fewer effect slots than NS but more effect types. This one was entirely pattern-based sequencing, all done direct from the iPad. I'm hoping to get the EWI connected to the Modular synth but haven't done it yet.

    @oldlibmike: Thanks mike. Yeah, I go in cycles. With the uke especially it is a lot easier to redo and comp parts in Reason than anything I've found on the ipad so far. I did use some apps during the composition process but didn't end up using any ipad sounds in the final production.

    @Kobi Rivlin: The only synth I know of that doesn't require expert programming would be Thor - if you get Bernie Kenerson's soundbank for it as well.

    What a collection! Hard to pick a favorite. Can you put comment markers at the start of each uke to make it easier to jump between them?
