If anyone is curious about how I made my latest EP entirely on the Novation Circuit Rhythm, here's a deep dive on that unit and some of the my favourite features (along with a few gripes)

Anyone else following along with the latest Deluge community firmware improvements? Just found out the latest nightly firmware can load DX7 patches, which will be fun to play with!

@nigelharpur @etherdiver If nothing else, I would say all the modern units adding FM engines is more reason to sell it! I've had (and sold) a DX7, DX11, DX21, DX100 and this Deluge update lets me get rid of the Volca FM more eagerly too. Ha

    @flockofnazguls also dealing with audio/video issues tonight as I've been trying to put together a video for Youtube, but have crackles and weird things going on. Sometimes the ghosts in the machines demand attention.

    I'm with you on the log book. My video setup is so rudimentary and hacked together that I have to re-invent it every time and could use a leg up

    @flockofnazguls thanks! No Mac, just trying to shoot videos of synths/talking with decent audio quality without special equipment as easily as possible (any barrier to entry = won't bother doing it. Ha). Running into issues with crackling audio, but may know the culprit

    @flockofnazguls thanks! Though I'm sure most of my gremlins are just me needing to prep more. Ha

    All the layers that went into the cover art for the Mental Clutter EP. Quite a few photos that ended up as subtle texture (I had big plans when I took that cauliflower pic).

    The original idea was to use use that pic of the Circuit Rhythm as the cover, but that seemed too much like product placement, so I used it as inspiration instead.

    Hopefully this is interesting to someone!

    Regardless of purchases, as I know everyone's wishlist piles up quickly on Bandcamp Friday, it's always heartening to see even listens and follows go up. Thanks for taking the time!

    Here goes nothing! I thought it might be fun to try a Bandcamp listening party for my upcoming Mental Clutter EP. Join me on May 7, a few days after release, to give it a listen and chat: https://baymud.bandcamp.com/merch/mental-clutter-listening-party

    How do folks feel about Bandcamp listening parties? Got a new electronic EP coming Friday and was curious about doing one over the next while, but never done it before

    @baymud@mastodonmusic.social avatar

    Got a new electronic EP coming out, my last live set was a costumed supervillain crooning and tomorrow's house show is acoustic folk. If only I could combine them all somehow

    Lord Plunder made a surprise appearance on Saturday for their first ever live set. Turns out it is hard to see out of a supervillain mask, but at least the Deluge makes a great backing band! More to come?

    Not sure I'll keep releasing on the usual streaming platforms, but for now the latest single from my upcoming Mental Clutter EP is out everywhere! It's an uplifting bop that I hope will put a spring in your step as the gardens turn green

    Rehearsing for a certain supervillain's first live set (the mask is a prototype to see if I could still see what I was playing. Making the real one this week)

    Shout-out and big thanks to all my fellow heavy/daily Mastodon mutuals for putting up with my frequent self promo. I try to vary it up but ultimately I know I'm just posting the same 2-3 links with very similar "please listen" entreaties attached.

    Obviously I'm trying to make sure people who only log on once a week might see it, or it might get reposted to the timeline of someone new, but I know you regulars see it over and over.

    baymud,
    @baymud@mastodonmusic.social avatar

    @etherdiver seems totally fine to me! Self promo is often one of the harder parts of being an independent musician, so it makes me feel better about my own posts when I see yours. Ha

    So many tabs open with new music to listen to today. I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I will try to get through all of it

    Trying out Bandcamp's pre-release feature to get the word out for my new Mental Clutter EP on . Check out the first 2 tracks now and receive the rest on May 3rd

    Inspired by old, forgotten samples and idea snippets, this EP was composed/arranged/mixed entirely on my Circuit Rhythm, which was a fun challenge

    Each of these tracks started by choosing an old sample/loop I had forgotten I made years ago and mangling them into something new. Was thinking of including the original loops as a bonus for folks who buy it---does that sound interesting or confusing/unnecessary?

    I suppose I'm lucky that I don't get many deal no-shows, but looks like two today! So many lowball offers too. I expect a certain amount of haggling, but I can't imagine offering less than half of what someone is asking

    @baymud@mastodonmusic.social avatar

    @etherdiver today it was just supposed to be a Volca and a computer docking station, but listed a pile of other volcas and a Minilogue XD so far. More to come! Purge time

    baymud,
    @baymud@mastodonmusic.social avatar

    @etherdiver it's always a give and take. I go through phases of trades and buying stuff, then the inevitable guilt of feeling too self indulgent and purge what I don't use enough. Ha

    @baymud@mastodonmusic.social avatar

    @etherdiver I definitely have too many too many synths and pedals (but I make those, that's my excuse!). I'd love to try a Hydrasynth, but I'm not sure it's for me

    Any other Deluge users out there?

    Anyone out there have personal experience with a Solar 42?

    @etherdiver good tip! Thanks
