Music

Here are some tracks I made using the Korg Electribe MX music production station. It's quite a lovely piece of technology. Click here to download the owner's manual and you will see just how much this baby can do.





Every sound you hear was played and recorded by me, and every beat had to be programmed. And the sounds were molded and shaped using the filters, oscillators, and wave shaping tools in the EMX, so the sounds are 100% original. None of what you hear in my music came from a preset or pre-made MIDI program; it's all painstakingly original music.

I've never played a paino or synth keyboard, or any other instrument before. I don't know how to read or write music. Consider that when listening to my music, and you might not judge it so harshly. All of my talent comes soley from listening to making music in my mind, which is a side effect of taking the elixir.


The tracks will all have videos eventually. Each one is unique, so if you don't like one, you may still like some others. I will warn you that some of them are sad and the videos for them will be even more depressing; showing how the future will be in 50 years -- no north pole, 40% of the species extinct, AIDS cured back in 1997 and patented yet FDA won't approve even though it's just silver tetraoxide...you know, messed up stuff like that. It will make it crystal clear to you just how wicked the US government is. You will probably feel like moving to another country after you realize you are giving your taxes to the most disgusting satanic government this world has ever had the misfortune of being controlled by.

But don't worry, a lot of the music will be happy also! I don't actually like making sad music, but when I'm playing the notes, that's what comes out most of the time. Sometimes you don't get to choose what your mind wants to create.

THANK YOU TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SENT ME FAN MAIL!

I appreciate the support and it helps motivate me to make more music. Not all of it wil sound like these tracks -- a lot of it will sound almost like dance music, and on the other extreme a lot of it will sound like ambient soundscapes. And my voice will actually be in some of the songs. I plan to make hundreds of tracks within the next year. Right now I also do at least one oil painting every day, and I try and do alchemy on the weekends and take a lot of photos. So the book will have over a thousands photos, my Photobucket page will have hundreds of paintings, and my music page will have hundreds of songs. Hopefully I will also make hundreds of youtube videos to go with each song. Sound nuts? I just love creativity OK? lol



And for the other Djs out there:

Some people have asked if I use special frequencies because the music sounds so hypnotic. Well, I don't use any special frequencies (even though I do know all about brainwave patterns) but the reason the notes sound so rich and full of body is from the two vacuum tubes that are on the output of the EMX. The electricity goes through these tubes and creates an anolog distortion effect that gives warmth to the music. Only the Korg Electribe series of Dj music production instruments have these awesome vacuum tubes.

And the distortion created by the tubes is actually wonderful when the music is blasted on nice big woofers. Some of these tracks I made sound like crap when you listen to them on headphones because all the rich bass tones are absent, and all the high pitch treble notes take over and mix together to produce a "hiss" noise.

Also when I first started recording, I had the computer input volume set to MAX, and the EMX volume set very low, which causes a little white noise hiss in the background. Now I've realized that the computer line input volume needs to be set to low, and the EMX needs to be turned up.

If you are using Windows, you can get access to all the sound levels by opening up the Volume Control which is in the Accessories folder, then in the Entertainment folder. When you open it the first time, it only shows the playback volume control. Go to the menu and open it again, and another one pops up. Now select Properties from the Options menu, and click on Recording and hit OK. The window will change to show you all the recording volumes.

You can then open up the simple windows recorder which is in same folder as the volume control. You need to change the sample rate by going to the Properties in the File menu, and then click on the Convert Now button. But the highest qaulity you can get is 48Khz 16bit stereo at 187kb/sec which is not nearly as good as what the EMX puts out. But you can also have several instances of the recorder program open all at the same time, which is great if you are using the EMX to process external sounds like voices that you are adding effects to, and you need to record a piece then mix it with other pieces.

Click here to see what it all looks like set up and ready to go.

So it pays to upgrade your computer sound card to 32bit and it will also come with much better recording software. The quality of sound comming dirrectly out of the EMX is so good that a CD can't even reproduce it, and an MP3 file also can't quite get high enough quality. That's why using the EMX live and playing the music dirrectly from the box then out to the club speakers is the best thing to do.

It has a headphone jack for the Dj, then has individual left and right outputs, but also has 2 additional outputs which can be assigned to any of the instruments seperately, so they play only on those 2 outputs. This makes it possible to produce a surround sound that is incredible when spread across an entire warehouse or club scene.
