Did you notice I’m going back in time to Episode 5? I realised I can’t get up doing a blog post for each vid, and found this unsent draft just now. Scroll down for the video embed. That’s just the amazing and crazy way I roll, I’m riding dirty. Those are from 2021 and its August 202 and I just produced episode 13 and you can always get the latest / last stream I did over at we.funk.nz shortlink. Sometimes it goes straight to youtube, others my latest AMU news post.
Tomachi live show / producer set + drums + piano
I was thinking about what I want my live show to consist of. Congealed my thought. It’s pretty simple idea: Multi-channel audio which is rock solid locked to a MIDI output running my onstage external MIDI equipment.
Sped up drums demo version:
So here is a beat I’m producing at the moment. A behind the scenes making of promo clip call it. The track is gonna be called I’m Native and is written by Sydney-side native Pirimia who asked me to lay some drums on it ages ago. A fine chap we call N8V 612 of the ditch (he lives in Sydney). It’s about how the system doesn’t cater to our needs. This is not the final audio you can hear. This is just part the making of. To get you hyped for it! I have focused on tightening the baseline lately (changes not in this audio) and trying somewhat to memorise it so when I lay my drum track it will sound second nature. I am also going to track the drums a whole tone under pitch like James Brown did in Funky Drummer using -11.2% Logic varispeed during the record session, in order to speed up the drums a bit like how this demo is sped up. i heard he lost the digital masters of this protools session but he had sent stems to me back around 2008. I don’t think he ever released it in the end. The machine won’t handle streaming and recording at the same time (I don’t think). Previous attempts resulted in a big jitter sound hehe. Hopefully Darryl if you are watching this hopefully you will film me doing this session somehow.
