It’s Alive (Week 9)

Yes folks the blog is alive once again (and I’m resisting the urge to rename it “Lazarus’ Desk”). The transfer to a new server didn’t go smoothly but everything seems fine now. Unfortunately, I appear to have lost the three most recent comments. Sorry about that. If anything else appears strange please let me know. […]

Yes folks the blog is alive once again (and I’m resisting the urge to rename it “Lazarus’ Desk”). The transfer to a new server didn’t go smoothly but everything seems fine now. Unfortunately, I appear to have lost the three most recent comments. Sorry about that. If anything else appears strange please let me know.

Having played with a cool new layout for a week, I’ve decided to go back to the simple BareCity theme. There are one or two small tweaks I still want to make with this, but I’m committed to a clean, text oriented interface for the blog. No multicolour social networking buttons or wildly overpopulated sidebars for me.

The transfer downtime means a few blog-worthy items were missed. The Hong Kong Arts Festival has started, so there a few performances to review. I’ve almost finished the migration and set-up of the Mac Pro (together with picking up an Apogee Duet and installing Aperture).

This week I’m knee deep in samples and loops, enjoying having them all on one fast drive in a responsive machine. The ReCycle update (now Mactel multi-core compliant) couldn’t have been better timed for me. Tomorrow is the first day of the Chanel Mobile art exhibition tomorrow (we’ve been watching it being built everyday – amazing). Thursday is Ornette Coleman in concert and Saturday we are seeing Zingaro.

How do you like your Apogee Duet?

I’m thinking of buying one and I’m curious to what you think of the sound quality, stability (esp. with Leopard), and usability.

The Apogee Duet? Sound quality is stunning. Zero Leopard issues (bliss compared to my old M-Audio woes). Very easy to setup and use, especially saving scenes. I like that with one click of the control I can mute the monitor speakers but keep the signal to the cans. Nice.

welcome back to the living!

And I like your clean look. I don’t know what it is about simple white blogs, but I like them.

Nicely done.
