Really need to tune the #strat & #acoustic #guitar on a 70° day after it's been cold/damp all weekend. Ohio #weather can be... challenging. 🎸

Of course, I had to check the back plate of the @earthquakerdev Data Corrupter for a #pedaldoodle

We were reminded yet again of the wealth of #talent in #neohio last night at @theWinchesterbar_ #OpenMic hosted by @megstepka of @megnetosphere (thx for letting Chris play your #keyboard, now he wants one w/weighted keys!). We had a blast, even playing "Take Flight" from our first #record!
🎹
All of the #musicians were awesome, including featured #performer Jenna Fournier / @missjennanights (pic2) and David Kay / @kraskadavid (pic3)

The downside of #cassettes !
😠
I had picked up #splicing tape online a while back, so I broke out my #editing block, got a fresh #razor blade and got to #work.
⛏
It took a while for the muscle memory to kick in, but I managed a clean #splice

Jackpot! Found a box of #cassettes behind #cookbooks in the kitchen. So far there's some #mixtapes from #backintheday but, more importantly, a big batch of #songs and #demos!

Thanks to my past self for copying these from DAT #tapes (remember those?)

Last night's big #330day show for @thesummit913fm907fm at  @thekentstage is kind of a blur, but I seem to recall this #tshirt was launched at Maude Flanders, when FT's #bass player Drew luckily intercepted!
🎸
Highlights from the show were numerous, but sets from @thisisjck, (Jeff Klemm & The Letters), JD Eicher, Demos Papadimas, Brian Lisik, Gretchen Pleuss and Natalie Grace Martin were above and beyond!

When you want that #authentic "Ridin' The Storm Out" #sawtooth wave + #glide sound, a VST isn't going to cut it. That's when you reach for the real deal Minimoog. ;)
🎹
This Mini is from September #1977 (and not for sale).

More #keyboard #work in the #studio today, moving into the 90s with the vastly #underrated #Yamaha #TG33.
🎹
Today's #patch sounds like a cross between something from the first #Suicide record, and Holland Tunnel Dive by #Implog. (I'll see if I can get some #audio happening later).
β™©
But my favorite thing about the TG-33 is the randomize function, which results in many useable patches. Like the intro to Pulse on our first #cd. https://youtu.be/eZ1BC7HxhRU

Brought out the ol' Yamaha DX-7 for #keyboard duties in the #studio today. Loaded up some Eno #patches after listening to Joe Meek (see previous entry) & #layered some tasty #sounds underneath.
🎹
While the #synth has seen better days (haven't we all?), if you want those #glorious FM sounds, and you don't want to use a #VST you gotta go to the #source. ;)

I've been re-reading Joe Meek's Bold Techniques by Barry Cleveland. Which sent me way, way, way down the rabbit hole on YouTube. (Way Down).
πŸŽ™
Great material from Humphrey Lyttleton, Houston Wells and the Marksmen, but it's The Blue Men's "I Hear A New World" from 1960(!) that kills me everytime I hear it -- there are parts that could have come straight off of the Residents, Pink Floyd or any of Brian Eno's 70s records.

Sunshine and 60Β° in February in Ohio? Cool story, bro. But, there are #acoustic guitars to be tracked today.
.
As always, there's a copy of @tapeopmag on the table and an AT4033 on the mic stand. ;)
