How to Use Myspace to Quickly Share Music
I got around to logging into Myspace again today. I never really used it in its original incarnation. Truth be told, I wanted to know what it was before when my daughter signed up for an account. Although I’ve known that it was more of sharing space for music now, I hadn’t spent much time with it…

October’s Program: The Haunting
It is Halloween and October’s Program of the Month is right on time. When I pulled the listing for The Haunting from my stack I knew it would be perfect. Although short, I knew I’d be challenged as this program of the month requires something I hadn’t needed before. That something was sound. Fortun…

Electric Shake
I wanted to create some more electronic music to listen to while at work. Electric Shake is a simple ambient beat to relax to. As always, uploaded to my ACIDplanet.com site for our enjoyment. With the demise of ACIDplanet.com, this is hosted on MySpace for now.

Easier Way to Update Album Artwork
After my long rant against WMP, I found a more elegant solution to my problem in iTunes. The answer was right under my nose, well touch-pad, so to speak. All I had to do was use the “Clear Album Artwork” option on my collection which removes the iTunes artwork, but not the embedded artwork…

Is WMP Dead and Other Music Adventures
So I picked up an Android phone this weekend and said to myself, “Hey, can I get music on this thing?” The answer, obviously, is yes. But, if you remember, I use iTunes and iPods. I bravely went off looking for iTunes to Android sync utilities…

Electronica and an X-Wing
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I have multiple hobbies. I tend to want to try new things, which often means I don’t stay focused. In the case below, I divided my time between two of my interests. I’ve been playing around the last few weeks with ACID Studio and finally got around to uploading …

Fly Me To The Moon Soundtrack
I uploaded a slightly longer version of the “Fly Me To the Moon” song to ACIDplanet.com. It isn’t much of a soundtrack since there is only one song. I created this version first but it was too long for the animation. The shorter version in the video was an edited remix of this one. Note that with t…

Halo Reach Music
Bungie just released the snippet of soundtrack for the premier trailer: Lone Wolf. The iTunes purest in me couldn’t live with the default no album art found image, so I created one! Here is the Halo: Reach album art at 640x640. And no, I didn’t bother to add any text…

Getting Comfortable With iTunes Home
I had read a bit about the new iTunes 9’s home feature. Unfortunately, trying to use it is a different matter. First off, using it requires you to log into your iTunes account. I’m assuming this is so you can transfer your old non-iTunes plus DRM laden music…

Updating iTunes - More Genius?
Well, iTunes 8.0.1 is out and purports to fix a few bugs and improve performance. It also cleans up Genius a bit — including simulations play and create Genius playlists. I’m hoping for an update to include Genius in my G3 nano. I can wish right?

Just Strumming Around
Well, after I broke one of the strings on my guitar trying to reattach the amp connector, I decided it would be a good time to restring it. I hadn’t played it in so long that it wasn’t in tune anyway. Since the family isn’t home, I’m pretty free to sing and not get heckled too much…

Enjoying a Moodstream
Ran across this interesting site in my feeds and thought I’d share. Getty Images has combined their stock images with their audio stock to create what they call Moodstreams. They are billing it as a brainstorming tool, remember they are trying to sell photography and audio…

Disney Mix Stick Pain
Well, the wife received a Pixie Power Disney mix-stick for Christmas this year. I know, it is marketed for kids, but it an interesting shuffle like MP3 player. Yeah, no screen, but with a 1GB of flash RAM, expandable with an SD card, it appeared to be a great little player…

In My Head
I uploaded a new song to my ACID Planet Site today called In My Head. Something I started on the plane today to pass away the time. I wanted to put together something that felt like things weren’t right — like something is in my head, needing to get out…

Hate You Again
I added a new song to my ACID Planet site last Tuesday called Hate You Again. It is my submission to the Distorted Reality Contest. I really liked the vocals and tried to use them to drive the song. The “hate you again” stood out to me and I used it to frame the mix. Enjoy. With the demise of ACIDpl…

Croak
Okay, was playing around with ACID loops again. I've added another song to my ACID Planet site called Croak. This time, I’m playing with different sounds and beats to get a unique feel. Again, this one isn’t very long, so enjoy! With the demise of ACIDplanet.com, this is hosted on MySpace for now.

Speed Me Up
I added a new song to my ACID Planet site called Speed Me Up. I took an Asian melody and threw various electronic and heavy riffs at it. Not very long, unlike my earlier attempts, so give it a play! With the demise of ACIDplanet.com, this is hosted on MySpace for now.
