Learning so much from this guy. Improved my playing and harmonic language; Ehen I play better, my writing gets better. Seriously can’t wait to stretch out and apply this in a project. It would be bitchin’ to orchestrate some this stuff for an orchestra #jazz #improv #guitar #composer #alwayslearning #musician #bibliophile #lifeasamusician #coltrane

Meanderings on sound: Amplitude

Volume is one of the most important parameters in mixing. Before you reach for an effect or a plugin, think about the often ignored fader.

The volume fader itself controls the amplitude of a mix, creating depth or presence. Pan dictates how much volume you want on a given side. An EQ in essence is a way of controlling volume of given frequencies. Filters completely diminish the volume of specific frequencies. A compressor/limiter controls the dynamics of volume; Decides if the amplitude is volatile or cohesive.


Experiment with treating this one parameter in different ways. Shit gets surprising.

It’s been a while since I just sat and tried to play piano. Yes, I’m the type of #idiot that plays an F# over a G7 chord. I really got to brush up. #slopfest2014 #piano #arpeggios #noob
