Still Inertia's studio, the (CRC Music Studio), is centered around a continual metamophasis and amalgamation of instruments, devices, and the interfaces that connect them together - both analog and digital. No work in the past has been processed through a computer until 2006. Before that year, everything has been manipulated and changed manually (one of the blessings of generation-defect-free re-recording via digital optical wires). All of that is now evolving and changing, however, as demonstrated in the first "Post-2006-Era" song "Eileen" which will be on the upcoming album (to be released Winter 2011) entitled "Invested".
The digital studio saw its dawn in December 1999 when my friend Gooding donated a MiniDisc deck and 4-track multi-track tape recorder - an analog studio device that the song "Anti-Depressant" was created initially in conjunction with an Amiga 500 computer and MED editing software for sequencing the rhythms. That project was then shifted over onto the Roland Digital Studio Workstation in 2000. By then, the studio had suddenly entered an entirely digital domain and yet became unplugged from a computer.Tthe Amiga 500's Y2K glitch killeds its functionality.) COMPUTERLESS, it was decided that technological independency was desired and, until I explored a more dedicated, high-end, audio-oriented computers, the studio, between 2000 until 2006, remained unplugged from the computer world. Since then, Still Inertia's music has evolved into the music you can hear online for yourself. Much thanks to all those who have helped me with my studio needs, abilities, and creations - past, present, and future.
In 2006, after the studio's 4th relocation to Philadelphia, I now am experimenting with song engineering, backbone sequencing and manipulation of samples from actual instruments, both from myself and from other previous, returning and new talents across the country, with the assistance of Sony's ACID Pro5.0 and SoundForge 8.0 on a PC computer. In 2009, ProTools M-Powered 8.0 (for Windows PCs) along with an M-Audio ProWire 610 musical input/output control-gap device joined the studio, merging multiple signal input and out, including powering the studio's newest monitor speakers: MACKIE MR5 Active Studio Monitors.
Special thanks for technical assistance and guidance goes out to Stephen Keever, Gooding, Jason Popejoy, toshio alan mana, Alex Vega, John Rowland and Keith Royer.
