Crazy, Massive Sale on Reason 5 ReFills

Yeah, it’s me. I’m still alive. I’ve spent the past two months knee-deep in diapers and spit-up, but I promise to return to a more regular blogging schedule soon. Until then, I just wanted to let you know about this crazy sale over at The Loop Loft. 50% off all Reason 5 Refills… this weekend […]

The Big News – Reason 5 ReFills

I’m happy to (finally) announce the release of a project I’ve been working on all summer. I’ve partnered with the ├╝ber-cool Swedish software company, Propellerhead, to produce two ReFills designed specifically for Reason 5 and Record 1.5.

Practicing with loops

When most people think of loops, they often think of them as something only used in the production of songs. However, loops can also be used as great practice tools. To me, there is nothing more uninspiring than practicing to the traditional “tick, tick, tick, tick” of a metronome or click track. Whenever possible, I’ll […]

YouTube Jam Session

Here’s a good example of what can happen when you’re really bored on a rainy Sunday afternoon. This originally started as a youtube video posted by Bob Reynolds… just him playing Donna Lee a cappella. Then, a few days ago, I saw via Twitter that a guy who goes by the youtube alias, “boobsax”, added […]

This is where it gets interesting.

As you might recall, last week I mentioned I would be collaborating with my old friend, Bob Reynolds, in the process of creating music/ideas/grooves for upcoming loop packs. Well, today I received my first “rough sketch” from Bob along with the following notes: Not exactly odd time, but I have this 12/8 loop in there […]

What About Bob?

Today, as I was recording and editing drums for “Gruss Loops Volume II”, I thought about how much more interesting it would be (for both me and my subscribers) to collaborate with another artist during the creation process. Scrolling through the massive Rolodex of musicians in my head, one name immediately jumped out as the […]
