Went light on the hardware this week. Mostly used freeware soft synth AUs and the EXS24 sampler (loaded with drum hits, waveforms, instrument sounds, and noise I created with circuit bent electronics, guitar pedals running into themselves, and digital processing) with a few supporting roles played by the Roland XV5080, Alesis SR-16, and Roland JP8080. I did also make use of an old soundfont that I made of my voice when I was 18 or so, before I knew the beauty of just using samplers for that.
The thing about writing swing in Logic, is that while it can quantize to various forms of digital swing, it does not (to the best of my knowledge) provide a way to view the grid as your chosen form of swung. So, in order to achieve that effect, I've always just written to triplets. I mean... it's not right, but it's also not TOTALLY wrong! If there's a way to change that grid into swing or five and seven tuplets though, holy cow let me know!
This was a real shitty week. Unhappy with my circumstances, but it would be a waste to just give up and throw everything away, right? Just like making bitter soup.
Besides, it's good for ya.
