Episode 20: The Tripple A Christmas Spectacular!

Great show!  Almost four and a half hours long!  Did a whole bunch of Christmas related things, listing them all would take too long!

I’m joined by Arfy and Alex this time so we dub the episode The Tripple A Christmas Spectacular!

Only a few mishaps in this one, at one point I don’t realize that my Instant Messenger sounds are going across the show, which causes some confusion and humor.  The sound cards failed me only once so I proceed to curse, scream, and complain then eventually restart the stream.

Overall a very fun show!

Enjoy, and  Merry Christmas!

PS: You’re probably wondering what happened to the missing episodes… I realize I’ve skipped a few episodes in the archive here, and as usual, I apologize for that.  I may post the lost episodes at a later time, unfortunately they are all compromised in one way or another at this time.

Episode #7: No Clever Name Here!

Our longest show yet!  Three Hours!  We started with some funny stuff, NES DPCM converted recordings.  We played around with the Roland PMA-5 which was a lot of fun.  We had a fair amount of guests show up on TeamTalk which was really cool.

Though there were a couple hiccups, involving TeamTalk, when some idiots that didn’t know how to configure their computers connected, causing some annoying noise.  We muted and kicked them.  Then again, when TeamTalk crashed for a few people, myself included.

All in all, it was a very fun show.  Enjoy!

Episode #6: Random MIDI Randomness!

 This was a fun but somewhat random show.  Chris, Arfy, and I pretty much played whatever tickled our fancy and chatted.  The main synopsis of this show is that it is very difficult to host a show AND try to remix a song at the same time, at least for me.  :)

Also, I apologize for our mic’s being a bit hot in this show.  Apparently I accidentally turned them up on the recording mixer.  Anyway, enjoy!

Episode #5: MIDI Remix Scramble!

 This was another pretty fun show.  The original idea was to remix a song or two on the show, but we all got sidetracked.  We did play a fair amount of different video game music remixes throughout the show however.

We had a few extra guests this time.  A couple of our guests had some considerable ambient noise, so you’ll have to excuse that.  :)

A little over an hour in, my computer crashed (around 68 minutes), stopping the show for a few minutes.  There is some conversation while we were not streaming where I frustratingly curse at the computer and my streaming software that I decided to leave in for your own personal amusement.

Also, worth noting, during the time I am trying to restart the stream, listen to how the universe aligned and made the music I was playing change verses and tone in sync with what we were talking about!  I thought that was pretty funny!

Anyway, not quite as tight of a show as last episode, but it sure was a lot of fun!

Special thanks to Arfy, Chris, Alex, Venison, and Miriam for joining in!

Episode 3: Andrew’s MIDI Scramble!

Last night was a bit of a scramble for me.  I wasn’t able to prepare for the show properly due to some real life circumstances.  However, we got through listening to a bunch of my different synthesizers playing some of the same tracks to see how they compared in General MIDI sound.

Most of the comparisons were not really intended to be very objective, just a showcase of how the different synths may play things.  I might try to do something more objective in the future.

Overall, I think the show turned out OK.  It’s a very raw show with me running about plugging in different synths.  I forgot to lay in some background beds when I was just talking, I’ll try to remember that in the future, and always have something for background.
