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 4: The Last Crusade of the Magical Monkeys!

What do you get when you play, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, The Legend of Kyrandia, and Monkey Island 2?  Why, The Last Crusade of the Magical Monkeys of coarse!  It’s a nice Roland MT-32 showcase.

A very special thanks goes out to Arfy, co-hosting the show with me on this episode!

This is probably my most fun show yet!  I mess about playing through the beginnings of the games listed above.  Arfy and I talk about whatever comes to mind about the games, and things in general.

I also attempt to narrate what’s going on in the games.  For the record, I want to add that when I’m reading some of the dialog slowly, it’s because the words on the screen are appearing too slow for me to read fluently aloud.

I also added a good minute of post-show conversation between Arfy and I and a random Yamaha XG song he asked me to record on my MU128 a while ago.

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.
