Hacking away



Hey hey,

Just wanted to let everyone know we’re still alive and kicking over here! We’ve been busy jamming on new material for the last month, and we’re getting ready to get back to the recording process real soon.

We’ve got a few brand new songs in various stages of completion right now, and we’re pretty excited about that.

Today we ran into a bit of a snag. The switch on the POG (my big silver pitchshifting pedal that lets me lay down basslines) has been starting to die on me for the last few jams, and today it finally kicked the bucket.

I had to play sans bass tone, which was okay for the most part, but kept causing us trouble in a particularly long and busy loop section in one of the new songs. There is one particular bass slide that really helps us both to define tempo that only works if we can really feel it in the low register. We made a bunch of progress, but I’m really looking forward to getting back to full range!

Can’t wait for everyone to hear it, I think you’ll know what I mean!

Luckily, it’s a really cheap part to replace, and I only have to do a tiny bit of soldering to swap it in, so I’ll be swimming in a sea of subharmonics once again soon enough.

Anyway, that’s what’s up today.

Happy Thanksgiving,
