Since I haven’t completed any tracks to post lately and I haven’t been buying any new gear other than more modules for the synthesizers.com modular, or following a lot of links to share, this place has been pretty quiet! However, I’ve received a few comments on my YouTube videos lately from people saying that they found them instructional, or that they think others might.
So I put this to you folks: What would you like to see videos about? Also, would you like to see more instructional content? If so, on what topics? Would blog posts explaining things be useful, or are videos better, or both, or…? I’m willing to explain pretty much anything.
I have at least one new module that I do need to make a video of (the Q107 State Variable Filter module), but I haven’t really mastered it myself, and I have to work on better lighting for the videos. I did make a video the other day, but it was too dark to use in the end.
State of the Ramp: I’m still feeling pretty discouraged these days. I’ve fiddled with a lot of things, but nothing’s quite coming out. I’ve read countless articles about dry spells and that all artists go through them, and I’m trying to focus on that. I’ve talked about this before (esp. in my post about Impostor Syndrome), but I’m not sure how much status updates like that are useful. I *have* been grateful in the past for knowing that other people go through it too, but, “Still not king,” every week gets tiresome, I would have to imagine. I’ve got something I just started the other day that might go somewhere. We shall see.
