Yeah! Today I wrote a new chorus on piano, we automatic-wrote some vocals, brad copied and pasted an intro into an outro, and I paused to shoot this masterpiece of modern cinema! Holy crap!
Kinda random: in the past few months, a bunch of you were recently talking about the “score” I created for the 2005 MTV VMAs (I did a small selection of beats for the show, and scored it with Lil’ Jon, who contributed his own tracks. We did not collaborate on any, FYI).
Some of you have already found the tracks on my soundcloud page, but I figured I’d post them here. Enjoy!
I’m trying out Soundcloud to host my music for mikeshinoda.com. The nice thing about this player is you can share it. Here are the mixtapes I made over the past few months; feel free to embed. Track listing is on the next page.
I don’t rant often, but this particular note deserves it. I’ll write this while the studio computer is restarting. Here’s the deal. I hope you guys at Digidesign are reading.
ProTools is friggin crashing…every time I zoom in too far.
I can’t zoom?
The engineers and I have tried to hunt down the root of this problem (online) for a month. We haven’t come up with anything. We then called the Digidesign artist relations team, who have told us 3 times “OK, give us a time when you guys will be in the studio, and we’ll call you.” They flake. Every time. Ethan (our engineer) asked if we could call them. “No, because we need a tech on the phone…” And so on.
To be fair, I know these guys are busy actually fixing this bug…but this is industry-standard software. Your average ProTools rig is about $30-50,000.00. I want to be able to, um…zoom. I hear that Logic and Cubase both zoom in. Even Garage Band zooms in, and that came free with my computer.
And after I did lockjaw and helped them promote PT8…and the NAMM appearance…and tell everyone how awesome their stuff is, maybe they could at least give a fella a call back.
