Kinda late...

I guess Shadow got booted from some club in Miami for this set.... Imagine being the retard that had to tell SHADOW to stop playing a half an hour into his set.. From what I read this happened in Dec, and the club actually issued apology. dig..

That JJOS yump off

After 10 years of using an mpc1k I finally invested in the jjos. Man, if  I only knew then what i know now.... This shit goes sooooo hard!!!

The ability to edit a program as a whole is well worth the $59. If you don't know what that means I don't know what to tell you. If you do know what this mean, you probably produce sample based music. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY YOURS TRULY.

Have a good day.

Bey goin' in!

Aaaaayyyyyeeeeee!



I really don't know what else to say.

Don't Just Type About It...

Skype about it:

Studio FOCHO Sco Mang v2.4.4

Serato FINALLY released a beta version of Scratch Live that works with Windows 8, so I finally plunked down some bucks for a laptop. I know what you're all saying, "why didn't you just buy a Macbook?" $1400 yo... ain't nobody got time for that! (One and only time I'll say that on the internet, I swear.)

DJ mobility and self-sufficiency, CHECK!

As an added bonus, adding the laptop to the home udio setup provides more breathing room for production. Scratch Live takes up a lot of space on screen, so having a dedicated screen for it is tight. It allows me to have more stationary editing windows, such as the mixing board and wave editor.

4th Screen Coming Soon ;)


 Also, SL is a beast program that requires hella processing power. When running Cubase full force with multiple tracks, effects, and the full gamut of options, the sound quality of the recordings is jeopardized. Throughout the "Aite Late" album, you can hear random pops and clicks caused by my GPU tapping out. (On the 1st scratch hook for the 2nd part of the song "Aite Late", the distortion is NOT on purpose. :\ ) Running SL on a separate rig will help make my recordings sound much cleaner.

On Track

So, basically, this is the setup that will produce my next solo album "On Track", or the majority of it anyhow. I have some bad ass producers on board as well. You may have noticed the synth... yup, decided to step out of purely sample based production to add a little more depth to my beats.  But don't worry, samples will still be the bulk of my sound, everything remains raw.

Progress is being made, but there's always more work to do! Back to work! Feel free to share your setup and approach to making music in the comments or on my FB page: fb.com/LToThe

Cheah!

Fresh Off the Bunsen

Organic Hip-Hop with fresh vegetables, haha that shit is tight tho.

I've always been pretty unconventional when it comes to my approach to rap. I feel like with "On Track", (tentatively scheduled for Summer 2013 release) it's only going to increase. More on all that later... moron, haha. Either way, I'm bringing my sand to the beach.
