Bandcamp, Part III

So, now Bandcamp has a Facebook integration feature. A long time back, I had created a Facebook page for James, Not Jim, but I’d left it unpublished. But the prospect of using it in conjunction with Bandcamp seemed like a good reason to move it along. And, as it turns out, the setup was cake. Read More …

Bandcamp, Part II

I added “A Sketch,” an improvisation based upon the main theme to “Ocean” to the bandcamp site. Here’s the embedded player (we’ll see how well it works with WordPress): A Sketch by James, Not Jim And here’s “Ocean,” the track upon which “A Sketch” is based: Ocean by James, Not Jim I’ll be adding more Read More …

Bandcamp

A lot of my musician friends are using Bandcamp these days to distribute their music. I’ve had an account for a while but never finished setting it up, until last night. I like how they do things. They have a nice option that allows fans to listen to tracks or to buy them for whatever Read More …

Same site, new host

I’m in the process of migrating all of my sites from Dreamhost to A2Hosting.com. Since jamesnotjim.com is a WordPress-powered site, I’ll be using it as a test to make sure everything is up and running. I’ll have more to say on the subject over at wheatblog.com, once I get that site ported over. Even though Read More …

The iMac lands

I posted over at wheatblog about my switch back to Macintosh. Here, I’ll only note that one of the biggest reasons I wanted new hardware was so I’d have enough horsepower to record without worrying about dropouts, and enough screen real estate so that editing would be a pleasure rather than a chore. I’ve only Read More …

“Good Day”

More fun with GearBox’s “Analog Delay w/ Modulation” effect simulation. I recorded this Monday night, and Monday was a very good day, hence the title: If you’re a TonePort user, here are the settings: Time: 1005 ms FX Tempo: 240.0 Feedback: 100% Mod Speed: 76% Mod Depth: 88% Mix: 50% I used my trusty ’85 Read More …

“A Sketch”

I was playing around with delays in GearBox and came up with this variation on a theme from “Ocean.” It’s all done in one pass (just bass + delay). You can check it out at its bandcamp page: http://jamesnotjim.bandcamp.com/track/a-sketch

ReverbNation

Bassist and FaceBook friend of mine Andy Long uses ReverbNation to share his music. So I set up an account for James, Not Jim, just to try it out. If you’re on that service, please become a fan. They also have an player widget: Update: If you’re on Facebook, you can become a fan of Read More …

End of year project review

It has been ages since I finished a track for the James, Not Jim project. But, now that the semester is finally over, there may be hope. I decided that I’m too much of a perfectionist when it comes to audio and that I should take the open source mantra of “release early, release often” Read More …
