I’ve been working on a new software rig in Max 6. One that is easy-to-use, doesn’t require the computer screen and is optimized for a monophonic system. (Which is pretty hilarious. Those of you familiar with my love of all-things-ambisonic will understand why.) There are many reasons, but the main one is that I wanted something portable, interesting to use in dynamically softer situations, something that I could plug into a guitar amp or lousy sound system and still sound good AND something for my gig with Ted Byrnes in Pasadena on July 8. 🙂
Well, then Nick Deyoe tells me he has some new guitar things that he wants to work on. So we set up a session in the Experimental Theater at UCSD’s music center, and recorded all afternoon on Monday…it was for fun, but the results sound pretty good, so maybe they’ll end up somewhere. One of the funny things about this: there are 61 speakers installed in the Experimental Theater…and we didn’t use any of them. Nick played into a Marshall and I played into a little JBL. And that room still sounds great.
Below, in order: Pics of my rig, and our combined mess. (Click any pics to enlarge.)
