oldschool CxC

Posted the radical left song lyrics to Dark Chomsky, a speech R·E-mix song I created, a long time back.
FYI -- I don't just sample the speech & go w/it, I totally re-phrase most of the speaker's sentences. If I didn't have backing music, you can hear much more clearly the awkward way the sentences sound. Funny that the music 'flattens' the speech to sound more natural.

I made a myspace.com musician account, R·E (aka myspace.com\realityenhancer), which is now online, and it's cool b/c it just starts streaming a random song.

It wasn't that difficult to setup, so if any other musical types are posting tracks, please post them? I'd like to hear what you're doing?

I remember the rap trio, Javan, A, and Sam, that was around for awhile. Anything go anywhere w/that? No mp3's to post online, just for kicks? :D

i think you've touched on it before, but I'd like to hear what software you are using to make that stuff, also any software you tried and gave up on?

Ableton Live is TRULY the shit, but I made some stuff in Acid and FL Studio awhile back.

If you've got the time, I'd sit and learn it. If you've got the dime, I'd buy a copy ($300 right now thru Guitar Ctr) and take a class (I took one for $400), as it's not the most straightforward app. But it's far easier than Reason / Cubase / Logic and it's still remarkable powerful -- more powerful than ANYTHING I've used previously.

The only limit is CPU + how many loops + effects at one time, and that limit is pretty freakin' large! My work laptop cranks out a lot of juice for that app.

If you want to email me your address, I can send you a CD. I burned one awhile back w/audio stuff for a friend.
