Jay Whitney

 

Tools: FL Studio 9 XXL Producer Edition (and a LOT of what it has to offer), Ableton Live, Sytrus, AutOgun, DirectWave, Edison, PoiZone, JuicePak, Spectroman, Flangus, EQUO, Deckadance, Celemony Melodyne (! Will Use More this with a regular Vocalist!), MuseScore, NeoSound FX, etc. Interesting/relevant hardware: M-Audio keyboards, M-A FastTrack, Applied Research [vacuum] Tube DI Phantom Power / Preamps, Shure (like Patsy Cline) and M-Audio dynamic mics, and MXL and Behringer condenser mics. If you're a DJ/producer and want any of the project files, let me know. I was raised right. I share...

Ask me what any of this means and I'll tell you. Musicians and sofware people invented the neologism. Nutso vocabulary galore. What's a freaking Dee Eye???

Oh the answer? Dee Eye is direct input/injection/interface. Some people call active DI phantom / preamp power / 48 volts, and condenser microphones need it, as it's more than just a signal like passive DI. Made setting up my digital audio workstation (home studio in computerese) confusing for a bit. Now, 'splain Plosives and Sibilance! Bring me another vocalist and I'll finish the answer!


After a hiatus to create new instruments and sounds... Let's DO THIS and start the New Year right. Time to rework the earlier stuff and follow some new ideas...
Listen to "Love You"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


Image Nation vs. Scott Fisher
Listen to "Pleasure Play"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


Credit and thanks to Trent Reznor for the vocals. Nine Inch Nails' The Hand That Feeds sampled and mixed, including some new techniques and freehand instrumentation/keyboards...
Listen to "Holding On"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


Credit and thanks to Leesa for the (female) vocals. Super-credit to mega soundtrack star/encouragement Ennio Morricone.

Credit and thanks to Leesa for the vocals
Listen to "Hit the Floor"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


Laurie W. does vocal samples on this track. I like how I got the beat, too...
Listen to "Teach Me Baby"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


Listen to "Seizure Fre(e)ak"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


For my very helpful friends... Lauren W. on vocals here.
Listen to "Thank You"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


The Cure more properly en-Tranced... Still screaming for female vocals and then some more vocal-trance tightening up.
Listen to "Just Like Heaven"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


This song is known to be a hit with pre-teens, teens, and buzzed adults. Send it to the clubs.
Listen to "Megabyte Dancer"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


Just a lolly. Laugh please...
Listen to "Guantanamera"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


This is an idea I've had for a while. This song is screaming for female vocals and then some more vocal-trance tightening up.
Listen to "Just Like Heaven"
(In other words, a work in progress for a while...)
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)


Perry Como doesn't do Major Key here, but his whistle had to be done and maybe this can be fixed a little...
Listen to "Magic Moments"
(Save this link target if you want to download this track for your iTunes/iPod library, etc.)
