    Essential stuff for fans of Lee Jackson

    Damn it, damn it, damn it. I'm in the hospital again. The swelling in my left leg set in and refused to be affected by the diuretics. Then my right let started swelling. Then both legs started turning red and hot - a sure sign of infection. I've seen a half dozen doctors already. They've diagnosed the redness as cellulitis and started me on 2 strong antibiotics. They're not treating the swelling as aggressively just yet - they think a metal filter I've had in my inferior vena cava since 2009 may be causing a clot. They're investigating whether or not the filter can be removed after all this time. Anyway, I'm in Baylor Lake Pointe hospital in Rowlett, TX. But, instead of sending cards or flowers, please - buy a copy of Geisterwolken instead! If you've already got one, get one as a gift for a friend! I would really appreciate it. Thank you!!! https://leejackson1.bandcamp.com/track/geisterwolken

    Feeling Old?

    Okay, to revise: physically, I'm old as sin. Mentally, I'm probably in my mid-20s attitude-wise, with the backup knowledge of a 58-year-old. I've tried my damnedest to keep up with everything as the years went by. My sense of humor never left me. (It likely got me in trouble a few times over the years.)

    Musical Commissions Open For Your WADs and More

    I might accept it as a paid commission, but it would take me a while to get up and running with the samples necessary to work with the tracker program. I'd also have to take a serious refresher course on how to use a tracker program, seeing as how I haven't used one since the Stargunner days. :)

    Musical Commissions Open For Your WADs and More

    (Sorry for the delay, @Nikku4211, just now seeing this...) I "default" to my SC-88Pro. It's setup on MIDI channel 1 in Cakewalk by Bandlab, and its "A" channel is plugged into I/O channel 1 on my MOTU micro lite MIDI hardware interface (the "B" channel is in I/O channel 2). However, if I'm playing anything using the Microsoft Windows Media Player app, it still defaults to using the internal Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth, which isn't really true GS as we all know by now. BTW, I now also have Yamaha XG capabilities as well. I bought a Yamaha MU100 from Japan, and it's working off of MIDI channels 4 and 5 from my MOTU micro lite. It's got sounds the Roland SC-88Pro doesn't have, and vice versa. Works good for commissions - it's already battle-tested and approved. :) I cut my teeth on MultiTracker, then moved to FastTracker II to compose the soundtrack to Stargunner. That was the last bit of tracker music I made. I've since concentrated on music utilizing Native Instruments' KONTAKT sample-based platform instead when I've needed samples. It's a bit harder to get your own samples into a platform like that, but there are ways.

    Favorite Adult Beverage

    I also enjoy a Sidecar. Had a great one mixed for me in Vegas when my wife and I were there for the filming of Battlebots. Ernest Hemmingway was a fan of the Sidecar, as the story goes, and after drinking one, I can see why. Recipe follows (from Liquor.com): 1 1/2 ounces cognac 3/4 ounce orange liqueur (such as Cointreau) 3/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed Garnish: orange twist Garnish: sugar rim (optional) Coat the rim of a coupe glass with sugar, if desired, and set aside. Add the cognac, orange liqueur and lemon juice to a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with an orange twist. Enjoy.

    Favorite Adult Beverage

    A properly made (and chilled) Manhattan. No bullshit Woodford Reserve. Just an honest bourbon, strained (not over the rocks), and served in a martini glass with an humble cherry. Down home cocktail.

    Essential stuff for fans of Lee Jackson

    Well, the first 24 hours of sales of "Geisterwolken" on Bandcamp have been lackluster, to put it mildly. Not counting a couple of sales of my full discography (thank you!), there were only 7 purchases of the song totaling less than $20. If you have listened to "Geisterwolken" and liked it, I urge you to buy a downloadable copy for your permanent reference! I would be extremely grateful.

    What is the best way to convert MIDI's to files like .mp3 or .wav

    Well, I can, but i don't do anything the easy way. After i've got my MIDI file done, I make a copy of it and add an Audio track to it in Cakewalk by Bandlab. I then record the output of my SC-88Pro into the Audio track. Once I've got a good take, I'll export the audio to a WAV file. If I need to convert the WAV to MP3, I use fre:ac to do the conversion. Don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any.
