Hi Ott, I noticed you mention Bernard Purdie and remembered him from Steely Dans "The Making of Aja" Album where he puts down the same grove as on your link. Nice documentary to take in for an hour.
By the way, I recently had 2" studio tapes from an old band of mine in the late 80's bounced down to digital so I can mix at my leisure. Do these digital track keep the analog sound when bounced?
I love Bernard Purdie but I would sooner rip my own ears off than listen to Steely Dan. The musical equivalent of warm, sour milk. I once worked with a live sound engineer who would use 'Deacon Blues' to straighten out the sound system at every sound check and I was on the verge of having him whacked after a month.
Great engineer, great guy, fuck Steely Dan.
If your tapes were transferred competently, using good quality A-D converters, they will have retained all of their analogue goodness
In an early answer you mentioned you like to play drums and percussion, do you set a tempo your feeling at the time, groove away on an electric kit for abit, keep the good bits chuck the resk and copy the groove to build a track over? or program the grooves in on the computer at the start?
The reason I ask this is as a drummer I Never used to listen to electronic music ever based on my (Then) closeminded view that it had "soules, repetitive beats" but then a friend played Blumenkraft at a party and offered me my first smoke about five years ago... and everything changed!! so thankyou for that life changing moment at that party! and how do you aproch your loose and groovy beats? Thanks again Ott.
I have just one question: When a live show?. And I want to thank you for this music ( i jut can't describe it in words) me and my best friend compare your music with the universe.Ott responded on 01/19/2015
