*nerd post* The iPG800 app is a total game changer for the old Roland JX8P ("Final Countdown" synth from 1985...). I'll never understand why in the late 80s and early 90s a lot of keyboards/synths were apparently designed to be a pain in the ass to program on the fly (the JX8P has just ONE edit slider...I mean...come on...) meaning people generally stuck with whatever presets were built in instead of making sounds themselves or really exploring the machine's capabilities (to be fair, many keys players are still guilty of this...) - here we have a 30 year age gap in technology and seemless integration, giving access to every parameter at once! Good times and new noises!!! #gearporn #synth #synthersizer #synths #80s #keyboardplayer #vintage #oldschool #keyboard #oldskool #roland #jx8p #ipad #nerd #musicianlife #synthporn #gamechanger  #newsound #newsounds #becreative #learn #studiolife #sounddesign #noises #studiotime #midi #irig #instamusician #musician #goodtimes

Big thanks to @mysteryliterary for inviting me to perform some original material yesterday at their first Festival! It perfectly finished off a whirlwind weekend - amazing work by the organisers and I had a great time even though I unfortunately couldn't stick around to enjoy it longer - good people doing good things. More of this. All the best for next year!!! (Enjoyed myself too much to take any photos yesterday so here's me doing a similar "making noises in a room" thing a few weeks back up in Scotland with @jessandthebandits - photo by Drew Burnett) @cosmicears @nordkeyboards #festivalseason #festival #livemusic #talentedfriends #singer #vocalist #keyboardplayer #musician #music #vocals  #song #instamusician #newmusic #songwriter #sing #iseenord #blackandwhite #bw #musiclife #musicforlife #spokenword #newmusic #onstage #festivals #goodpeople #goodtimes

First two tracks officially boxed off at @musicinthecabin for the solo record! (when you've reached the "tuned singing bowls" stage of adding stuff to a mix, you're probably done...) #newep #newtrack #newsongs #singer #songwriter #newsong #singing #bowl #bowls #newmusic #musician #music #workinghard #recording #studiovibes #studiotimes #percussion #mix #guitars #recordingstudio #layer #behindthescenes #slowjams #goodtimes
