Saw you in Boulder last night - I think you may have a future with this music thing of yours.
Anyhoo, what technique did you use on the initial vocal in "Aubergine of the Sun" ("Welcome - we think you'll like it here...."). I own no vocoders in my little hobbyist's kit but I do have Cubase 8.5.
This is the lyric a parent sings to their newborn, yes?
Actually she was four when I wrote that to her. It was just how I was feeling that evening, out in my little studio in the garden of my [then] house.
I used an EMS System 2000 vocoder which I bought from Vince Clarke for £1000 in 1992. It's my favourite thing ever and it is currently priceless.
A while back, on your primary website, you wrote very favorably about Bitwig Studio. You said that you planned to continue exploring its usefulness to your work. Could you follow up on your experience?
I downloaded the trial version, but found myself stymied by the inability to change time signatures within a piece. I know I could ignore the bar markers, but that seems unduly complicated to me. Computers are so much better at mathematics than I am, I'd like for the machine to do that work!
Do you have any thoughts about working with this limitation?
Hey Ott. I'm an american but really like UK spelling and punctuation, a lot of literature is printed in it. I use it occasionally and accidentally, it makes people here very uncomfortable sometimes. You spend a fair amount of time in the US so I was wondering what your opinion is on the different ways of writing things? (Ultimately the american spelling is closer to Latin so some might say it is more correct than UK English, which is closer to French, but to me the UK way is more aesthetically pleasing??)Ott responded on 03/03/2017
