    Let's simplify this. 99% of my favorite records took longer. The only album that's a classic for me that took just a month is "The Slip" from NIN.

    I'm certainly not trying to crap on the idea of recording an album in a month. Quite the opposite, I'm attempting it. Today is my first day off from my job (Medical dispatch, which starts at 12pm and ends at 11pm, add commute and you can see why those are generally dead days. Luckily I only work three of them a week). So it's now time to review which projects are going to make the cut from my loop/snippet/song idea archives off voice recorder, and then get cracking.

    I endorse anyone trying this. I just don't expect to have "OK Computer", "Aenima", "The Fragile", "Low", or "Me

      lol Lilie. Imagine the quality of the music of an album made in 28 days! Even Vangelis would suck at it, lol.



      AHEM... Let me explain, if you didn't know: Vangelis does music instantly! With his custom equipments he can do recording, performing and arranging at the same time. In other words, doing songs takes as long as playing it! So basically, everything you can hear from Vangelis, specially after 90's, is something that is created by improvisation and recorded only once with no overdubbing!

      So Vangelis literally can and makes music everyday (Vangelis said if he would totally stop making music right now, he would already have hundreds of albums as he archives everything), but of course, only fraction of his works ends into offical releases.

      So, your phrase is totally incorrect. Vangelis could make an album within one single day and would everything but suck at it...


      Vangelis expert have spoken
      "I'm totally opposed to all these expensive bull**************** computers (sequencers). They can do whatever you want but not in the time you want. People have lost the essence of time. One said to me: 'With this new computer I can create something in one or two minutes'. This is an eternity. I can do that in a split second. But the split second doesn't come into account because the previous computer could do it in 10 minutes - so for them, 10 minutes to two minutes is really great progress!" - Vangelis

        P.S. You don't have to WRITE all of the music in February, although that is encouraged.
        You just have to RECORD it all in February.


        I like the idea of writing it and doing it from square one. If I had spare ideas I could use I would but everything is either from past projects or is too complicated to do in a month.

              I played it a little. It sounded cheesy. There's only one audio output on the back [looks like a 1/8-inch] and no MIDI ports. It's little bit heavy. There's a little problem with the power jack on the back [you have to hold the adapter's plug by hand in a certain way to make it turn on]. It can easily be fixed I'm sure. And one of the keys has a hole in it

              I went back to the store just after I uploaded that vid for you on here. It's still there. I took the AC adapter and hid it elsewhere in the store to reduce the chances of the Casio being sold

              Yes, I'm in NY state. So, do you want it?

              You left your ISO on Auto. That's a no-no.

                        I'm gonna pass, only bec Ive been spending too much!

                        $20 though, I passed up an SK-1 for that much. (have an SK-8)

                        I kinda like a couple of the sounds though, the rest are pretty cheesy. So far as I know, Casio uses the same exact 9v adaptor as some smaller Korgs and Rolands (not the TR-707 though!). Assume the batteries on this one work too!

                          working on the tunes, I may switch and do something totally different as its taking too long I think.

                          Playing bits into Live with the Casio ...enjoying the fuzziness of the Casio sounds though the RCA outs are well noisy... using Live as a multitracker. Lay down one track, change patches, lay down another. Its cool bec it makes me play more.

                          Also sampled the Casio drums into Ableton Impulse racks and sequencing them kinda-MPC style with an LPD8. Really like working this way. They sound better sampled, like a more aggressive TR-505. Clap is really bad though. But with Impulse I can do all kinds of fun tweaks too...

                          what If I went the Autobahn route? side 1 is one really long song. and side 2 is parts 1 and 2 of another, or something like that, hehehe

                              it totally sucks here, its taking too long! Started a dubstep-inspired thing with just my EA-1 which was a lot of fun so maybe I'll make 8 more tracks of that.

                                nice moody tunes there, greg! esp like the 3rd one, was thinking they needed moar synth or processing on the piano but this one just works as is.
