day 18 and day 19 new songs in progress

Some of the material I have been working on is not ready to be uploaded for pattern views as of yet. the last two days there are two new songs in the works on the new card that I unboxed in 3d.

I also wanted to make sure I keep up with posting other videos and songs other than my own and watched as I posted in several windows last night which was really fun as there is a lot of good material being made on the ds 10.

I would like to pre-order a 3ds...we will see how the funds are. I would love to put some of my 3d videos up for download to the 3ds if there is a format or conversion available when it comes out.

the songs I am working on rely on:
song one-delay and swing
song two- panning and layering
both using the ds 10 plus.

will have some new videos up this week sometime.

michael nervous korg ds 10 - day 17 new album

here is a video I recorded in a cave with a 3d camera. The song was recorded into a camcorder through the mic input and the video from that camcorder was not used. the video was taken seperatly as i'm trying to get that part of my new album down (sorry for the non korg talk when it is a part of what I am doing on the album) -the 3d on the camera's screen is amazing. it even looks good on my pc. somewhere in the mixdown or you tube 's conversion something was lost. you can see in the video that it has a 3d effect at some points.

the song featured in this video is ready for recording for the album.

day 16 - brings 3d....and trouble- michael nervous album begins in 3d korg ds 10

video one did not work

video two worked, but does not have 3d effect.

these videos took me all night. now that i know how to get from camera to software to you tube i am happy. I felt a little taken at first as I made my own 3d camera setup and now have figured an easy way of uploading those videos as well. however being able to view in 3d is amazing. if you want to take the cheap route let me know and i can do a quick post about it.

korg ds 10 in 3d coming soon!

I was afraid of this

I have software and a plan was to document and put everything on youtube and blog it as i make the new album. Well I may have to wipe my hard drive as my computer has a lot of issues and will not support what I want to do. The thing is that after wiping it I may still not be able to do what I want...and you know there is always things that get really screwed up when you start over....anyway enough complaining.....

day 14 and day 15 brings new songs and videos...I hope

I was away for a few days and was still working on songs. I tried to blog from my iphone (I have done several times before) and i ran into some issues.The mobile blog seemed very easy but the web did not like what I was doing. my text was adding html like crazy and promoting the blog app I was using on my iphone.

several songs are complete (patterns not performance) and some new videos will be up soon.

On my trip I got very familiar wit my 3d camera and will be trying to post some video and pics to go along with the album.

day 13 of new album brings new camera

i have posted about some software i have been using to make 3d videos that i have had for sometime. well yesterday i finally got my 3d camera (not like the homemade setup i have been using) this camera is amazing! I have been using it all day and night. I have also been working on new material for the album but nothing to post. The camera records video and pics and records in stereo sound as well.

Day 12 new song in the works

I worked on the new song today (which is now day 12 up late) it's not finished for YouTube. But I did purchase a new Ds 10 cart at best buy for $10 dollars off - 10% coupon and five dollar coupon = $14.98 after tax. I have concerns with my backups so i bought the new cart. I will do an unboxing video for fun with new song.

Palm Sounds: day 10 -2&r - new michael nervous -for new album- korg ds 10


korg ds 10 in the dual mode using the drum machines as synth arpeggiators.
lots of noises. the tracks fell apart and were meant as a track not on the album. i have been working on it with the album but did not like the flow. somehow the sav got messed up and i liked what i did to it in the end.

Palm Sounds: song- untitled-pansnc-day 8 new michael nervous album for bl

Palm Sounds: song- untitled-pansnc-day 8 new michael nervous album for bl

Day 9 - New michael nervous album - song - krafty

the korg ds 10 sphere:

I spent some time with video software on this one- I was trying to get more familiar with the video software so when I complete a whole song I might be able to have a video idea ready at the same time. I'm hoping for 3d. I have put a lot effort in the past into 3d and have had great results...the problem was youtube. now youtube supports 3d. now the problem is my homemade rig for 3d won't go to you tube. ok so I have 3d software and a 3d camera on the way but my computer is outdated and won't support these things. anyway once I get the camera I will see what I can do----not the time for a new computer.

the audio is again untouched (WELL WAIT! HAVE i MENTIONED THAT THERE IS A 10DB PAD GOING INTO MY MIC INPUT ON THE CAM? I had to put the pad on or it would distort...anyway if anything that lowers the volume and does not enhance it).

this song has several versions-see what the final result is by keeping up with the blog.thanks for checking it out.

Ordered my nds adapter plus yesterday

I have the original nds adaptor and have been using it for some time. Now that I have started my third korg Ds 10 album I felt a little nervous that if this thing breaks I would not be able to finish. So I ordered the new one and will blog if I find any differences. I also finally got a USB charge cable (easier than carrying around the adapter). BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

day 8 is here of michael nervous making an album

Day 8 is the song untitled - pansnc - Again this is no external effects on audio and lots on video. this song almost did not even get a save. I was not happy with it and started almost from scratch...other than a few sounds and ideas it is completely different.

day 7 - song 123432 - new michael nervous album

I added video effects as I am trying to get used to some software that I will be able to edit 3d. I think my computer is out dated and I need to upgrade. anyway it's not 3d but i had fun learning some in progress. this is still a live take into the zi8 camera i just edited the video result audio is untouched...if there is a small sound interuption it's from a bad video swipe.

oh yeah - song- new michael nervous -2011

there are so many versions of this song I think i may have two different titles and they only share a few sounds.

day 6 - mono 1&2 - new michael nervous

This track was started in Las Vegas and is further along than the video now....but has that empty pattern break that is so familiar to ds 10 artists (has since been removed).

Effects coming soon- delay and distortion

multiple ds systems coming soon -debating wether to use 2 or 3 ds 10s....if I use 2 for each track I can have all the systems linked and there does not have to be a pause between every track. I can run 2 versions on two ds systems and two on another and run dual mode on dsi, so that we get me three songs with no break. I also would like to have it where it gets me more patterns not running simulataniously. mute 1 ds then mute the first ds after the 16 patterns have been used. I also am very cautious as 1 ds is a refurb and the screen sometimes does not get the touches.

Ds 10 confessions
If you are wondering why I have so many ds systems I traded in games at game stop when the korg ds 10 first came out. I became obsessed with it. I must have watched the trailer videos 100 times before it came with ds 10 plus. I have been making music on portable drum machines, toys, field recorders anything mobile since I can remember and the korg ds 10 has by far been the easiest and most fun. It forces you to record direct out so no conversion to screw up- I love effects and that has kept me from playing live more with ds 10. I have decided to mix my old style of music with the ds 10 (I do this when I jam with friends anyway), which is using effects and field recordings to multiple outputs. I tried to make my rig simple and easy to use live, but I love not knowing what exactly will happen with all the effects and options. I did a show once that I used a laptop running ableton live with nothing more than a trigger finger and had field recordings and homemade beats, guitars, noises etc linked to the pads and faders. It had a lot of effects. I had a friend on stage with me and she ran the trigger finger with the use of worksheets I had made. the worksheets are the way the songs go on the album. I had a mouse in case anything was to out of order (loud noise, bpm to far off). In the background was a kaleidoscope video of boat rides in Thailand and deep ruin adventures in Cambodia. we had 8 channel outputs going to powered speakers around the venue - including there stage speakers. It went very well and that's the kind of thing I want back with audio of my live sound - mixed with fun craziness of my early albums were everything else was played live over a cd of things we could not re-create (field recordings, someone Else's keyboard etc.) I'm rambling and should be recording.......

it's been a while

Making my life simple...korg ds 10

day 3 video- mchl nrvs new material

This video was a sound test for recording directly into my kodak zi8 camera thru a m-audio 10db pad.

-volume needs to be louder on dsi.
-mic input volume up as well

I used a headphone y splitter to hear in headphones.

It was only a test of the patterns. Some of the patterns were created on earbuds and did not sound good thru full dynamic headphones.

overall I was excited to post this, but was not satisfied.

I was hoping to accomplish an easy - not editing way of posting video.

the high resolution of the camera made my pc run slow and the quality was grainy (on macro).
- I will leave lights on next time, reduce resolution and clean off sd card.

Album and live set up have been in my mind since I first started ds-10 and I have done this with drum machines, speak and spells, other circuit bent rigs and original gameboys etc. 3 of the ? of the actual set up and album....

effect parameters for my new album / live setup

Post 300 special news- for me at least-

The majority of the material for my new album is written. I thought it would be fun to show it's progress on the blog.

I did everything different this time around.

- made some songs on ds cards, backed them up, made new versions of the same songs and will play them together through effects, monotrons kaoss pads along side of filed recordings.

- made some some songs on ds+ and will use them live on ds cards playing on separate ds systems so i can use external effects (using ds tool to separate songs).

I have only tried everything to make sure it works.
I am finishing the patterns of some songs.
I have backed up all cards using nds adaptor
I'm keeping notes on all the parameters that matter live- bpm, patterns...

I will be using 4 ds lites running the ds 10 software linked together through local wifi with a dsi running the ds 10 + software.

I hope to be using a boss dd3 and dd5

also a mini kp and kp3

2 monotrons

nsp using iphone

zoom r16

either a way to big for mobile music mackie board or that small mixer in the photo

the usb keychain was a gift and stores my backups and notes (nds adaptor software and ds tool)
