Here's a new one! Hope you like it!
Thanks, Biggles! This whole year has been a massive poop in the pan and I don't just mean because of the Covid thing. I just got back from my brother-in-law's cottage and for some reason, the people across the river have decided that quiet is a bad thing. So now we have people who suffer from a cerebral rectal inversion making more noise than one would hear at a rock festival. Screaming, yelling, screaming yelling on boats, on jet skis. well you get the picture. We just want some serenity and the spot by the water used to be our sanctuary.Oh I feel your pain.
My iPad is in bits after the the screen developed a mind of its own. The company that I ordered the lcd panel off did not include the touch screen so that also had to be sent, the GPS and WiFi aerials also need replacing since the ham fisted guy stripping the iPad damaged them softening the adhesive.
My car has a major service in a couple of weeks that will cost near on $1000 and it needs four new tyres at $400 each plus it has to have a MOT which is a legal roadworthy test so that is another $80 (US equivalent costs of £UK).
Great vid btw.

Back in the early summer, I started having massive problems with my mixer and my Cubase 10 DAW. I can't get the 2 of them to talk to each other. Around about the same time I also found that my Soundcloud site was almost full and if I wanted to expand it, it would cost me a lot more money. So I'm paying a lot to get people to hear my songs. Aren't I the one who should be getting paid? Anyway, since Youtube is free, I started putting up little music videos. I have an old Zoom Q4 camera that I bought 7 years ago to record "home movies". I'm now using it and sometimes, when I can figure it out, my iPhone 7 to record music videos. Most of my gear is pretty muck maxed out. My Kronos' SSD is full so I can't save any more songs onto it. There is supposedly a way to clear memory but I haven't had any success in doing that. So my solution to getting my creative bug on, is too pretty much record to the camera live. Yes, analogue gear is very addictive. Very very very addictive. I especially like the lack of patch memory. It means to me that you have to get it right and record it. Or else it's gone bye bye forever. One day I'll get my old Minikorg and Polysix repaired. One day. I do have to admit though that I also really like virtual analogue. I'm very surprised that the King Korg received so little love. It's an amazing little synth. At this point in time I'm hoping to sort out my mixer/cubase issue but I'm not going to stop writing and making more videos. One day I expect to get some video editing software so that I can have my Zoom camera and my iPhone filming from different angles at the same time. I'm not in any hurry though. As soon as it turns into work and not play, I'm done.Man, I would pay good money just to see you on stage with a drummer, a bass and no vocals.
Time to explain to your bandmates how they're "holding you back..."
And I gotta say, the King Korg really cuts thru the mix.
To be honest I've pretty much wasted the whole summer on not much else than practice noodling. Analog gear is Soooooooooooooo addictive when it comes to creating sounds but not so wonderful for recording them.
I've gotta start a few new fall/winter projects to keep me from hibernating this winter.
