I am STILL messing around with stupid design things for my music.
It's a lot of fun actually. I'd like to learn how to animate some of these. I'd also like to come up with a sticker-worthy design that I can print and hand out places.
I also ordered a new soldering iron, but for stupid reasons. I got some soldering tips for Christmas, which turn out to be incompatible with my current iron. Should I spend another $10 on correct tips OR spend more on an iron that matches the ones I have? The latter provides a nice excuse to upgrade to a variable temperature controlled one with a digital thermometer.
Well, now I'll have to download another VST.
Alter Ego is tons of fun. I've found you can stumble onto 2-3 note stretches that sound surprisingly convincing, but making a whole line sound realistic would be some kind of wizardry. Still, the thing has enough parameters I think someone could do it
This weekend I downloaded a ridiculous voice synthesizer VST called Alter Ego and had a blast messing around with it. Evidently you can coax a sort of Ghost In The Shell Bulgarian choir-style sound out of it, which is something I've wanted to get for a while.
Related, reading up about SAMPA is pretty interesting.
I always look forward to Hubski but I never remember what to talk about when it comes around.
I have a promo video for music stuff, which is meant to be a prelude to a full video, but to finish it I need to get a proper license for Premiere Pro. My trial expired :(
I also haven't had a proper day off in two weeks, so I'd really like to have a weekend this time around.
The other night the house was flooded with acetone fumes from the neighbors downstairs. They're doing something to the floors and filled the whole place with a coat of acetone, leaving the windows open to let the fumes waft into the condos upstairs. I had to take the cat and hole-up in the car for a few hours while I figured out how to air-out our place. That was fun.
Other than that I've been working on some unfinished art to pair with my music project. I have:
A phony subway map of all the tracks
A monolith on a martinscape
and some hokey elk bird tiles
What I'd like to do with some (all?) of these is print them onto paper then scan them back at high-res to get some texture to it to curb the digital-ness.
