Technology Wins Out Again

By |January 3rd, 2015|Categories: From The Studio, Mobile Music Creation|0 Comments

For the past several months I’ve been working on various projects to see how useful it is to finally use the equipment I’ve been working with¬†for several years and get them incorporated into the musical world. While the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is one of my most recent purchases, I have found a lot of reasons to use it. So far I’ve used it at out last TRC Concert with MobileSheets and the BT-105 AirTurn Bluetooth foot pedal. The whole operation worked very well. Now that the Fall Season is over, I’ve found that the tablet is becoming more invaluable as a practice device by using the split screen. Currently I’m running the MobileSheets and Amazing Slow Downer Apps at the same time. MobileSheets allows me to use my scanned materials and the ASD allows me to slow down recordings of these materials.


As time goes on, I’m finding more and more uses for these items. Next up will be incorporating a new MacMini into the portable studio which should be coming in this Wednesday. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I know that things have been REALLY quiet around the site for quite awhile and doesn’t look like much is going on.

Between work, band and finishing up a move, I haven’t had much time to do much of anything else. Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in more time here and there to get the additions/enhancements that I have been working on for QUITE a while incorporated into the site.

I Am Not A Traitor! :)

By |September 8th, 2014|Categories: Personal Thoughts|0 Comments

Well, it’s been a week since I left the confines of my iPhone 5 and entered the world of Android by getting an LG G3 (and the $1 7″ pad that went along with it) and have to say I am very happy. :)

I’m able to do things now that I only wished I could do with my iPhone and now I’m exempt from the iPhone 6 fever that is just around the corner.

Don’t get me wrong, I still like Apple products – I’m not giving up my iPad and will still use my iMac for all my Audio and Video productions, but it’s nice to have a bit of freedom and not be locked down so much.

Anyway, that’s just my 2 cents. :)

Mr White has announced that Symphonic Band practice for the Fall Season will begin on August 25, 2014 and will meet every Monday (except for September 1 due to Labor Day) in the Bandroom located in the Tinnin Fine Arts Building.

The Fall Concert is scheduled for December 2, 2014 (Mother Nature willing). :)

The theme for this semester covers two areas that that I have been wanting to do for a LONG time – The movies and John Williams (my all-time favorite composer).

So far I only know that we’re doing The Cowboys but will find out more on Monday. :)

Store Is Back Online!

I still have some work to do but I think the store has been down long enough. I’ve moved from Jigoshop to WooCommerce so hopefully things will run a bit more smoothly.

PLEASE let me know if you have any problems – I can’t fix them if I don’t know about them. :)
