Up and At 'Em!

Got up bright and early this morning. I have an on-and-off relationship with mornings. Today it occurred to me that while the early bird might get the worm, the worm who sleeps in until noon will miss all the go-getter birds, which also has certain advantages.

I made this on the bus:

I'm up to almost a half hour of music made in Caustic 2. This coming from a guy who just a few months back didn't see the need for a smart phone. Still can't get over having a full DAW in my pocket. Crazy times we live in.

Too Much Tequila

Is that an admission of guilt, or just the name of the track? I'll never tell.

Too Much Tequila:

I can say with a fair degree of certainty that I was not under the influence of anything when I made Now With More Stuff:

THIS is not mine. Nothing to do with it. Just someone I've communicated with on Soundcloud, and I think this track of his is particularly awesome. Warning: dubstep.

This is NOT how waveforms are supposed to look.

See how large tracts of this waveform don't cross zero? They just sort of bottom out and hang really low? That means I really mangled  it with effects. I should probably ease off some of them, but I also kind of like the crunchy sound.


EDIT: substituted some distortion for flange, eased of some of the bitcrushing, and the results are crunchier than ever, but don't hurt my speakers as much. The waveform is much closer to centered.
