Banned unjustly, but not forgotten

Well, well, well...Looks like my adsense account has been disabled and will not be reinstated (after appealing).  It looks like I was click-bombed on May 2nd, seeing 30-40 clicks on my ads after normally generating much less - google first disabled my account due to "invalid click activity" and, then after I appealed it, stated that it would not be reinstated.  I will search for adsense alternatives, as I really enjoy making these videos, but they do take a considerable amount of time and, while I don't need to become wealthy with this, it is satisfying to know that I am even being compensated a little bit.

So, here is my last video song for at least the next few weeks while I figure this thing out, the aptly titled, VITRIOL!

MASSIVE Genome Ipad MIDI Jam!!

Finally getting my brain in to the GENOME Midi Sequencer, by White Noise Audio. It is VERY COOL!

Using network MIDI, I've connected the iPad2 (running Genome/Arctic Keys/BS-16i/NLog Pro), to an iPhone 4 (running Sunrizer) and an iPod Touch (running Arctic Keys).

Also, via an iRig MIDI connector on the iPad, am sending a MIDI signal to a Moog Little Phatty as well. Can you believe this all works! I have a pretty strong WiFi signal, so the iPhone/iPod Touch work well and there isn't any discernible latency.

Presumably I could run my other iPod touch as well, with a compatible virtual MIDI app. I also have a MIDI splitter box, so the idea of sending to more MIDI hardware is also a idea (or by chaining with MIDI THRU).

The possibilities are great with Genome!

Thanks for watching!

Moog Little Phatty Filter CV Explorations!

Part one is all about using pulses sent from an iPhone with the Korg Monotribe SyncKontrol software into the Little Phatty's Filter CV input.

Part two involved using an expression pedal into the filter CV input, playing my Fender Jazz bass into the external IN - the bass is completely processed by the Moog.

Beautiful May the 4th afternoon here, grabbed my Monotribe and a bunch of iOS devices and jammed on iMS-20, Kaossilator, Monotribe SyncKontrol and Geosynth!
