Janek's Sound/Art/Installation & Music Resource/Review

Some of my own thoughts...

"Music is the Architecture of Sound"
"It's only really interesting if it's also really rewarding"
"Everyone has expectations - Explore and experiment with them"
"Everything in the world has at some point made sound, or been the cause of sound."
"It's not
(just) what you do, it's (also) the way that you do it"

"Technology is a tool, not the message"
"Limitation breeds creativity"
"Context is key to concept"
"Think Big, pack small"
"Deadlines Rule!"

a philosophy of life "Survive to thrive"

Technical gear recommendations [I am not super technical]

my live performance set up

The only Minidisc to buy for touring is the Sony MZ-R55 by Sony. Buy it on ebay for around £30. The smallest and last of the first generation minidisc by Sony that has instant track access [no 2-3sec track loading delay time, during a performance, as with all later models]. It has all the physical buttons needed for on the spot editing, unlike via fucking 'menus' on the later models. It's the best there is. The MZ-R30 is also amazing and the industry standard for reporters and amateur field recordists. Totally robust, but a bit big for touring......

TOP TIP - Use the 'Repeat 1' function to make seamless loops. Only Sony do totally perfect loops without any click or pause.... very easy to use. I use 3 for concerts.
GO TO: http://www.minidisc.org/part_Sony_MZ-R55.html



There is a new version R-09HR. It's a bit longer a bit tougher, but has a few advantages - nice to use in the field - small robust and excellent quality again
It has a speaker on the back which is nice, and has a remote, but still can not edit tracks on the recorder itself which is the joy on a Minidisc.
I Now Use 5 of these R-09HR for recording and projects and also live play back - totally reliable and decent looping

Loads of alternatives on the market - but this one rocks my boat

Edirol R-09 - I bought this and was super impressed. Great size, great onboard mics.. great fucking everything..
[no onboard 'track mark' editing like MD's but hey we have computers for that]
6 years into the 21st century we seem to have the ideal recording device... BUY IT

Edirol R1
is one of the first generation hand held Pro/Consumer digital recorders. Does the job well if you have less cash
It's USB again so you just suck the sound straight onto your computer - marvelous :-> very worth while. bigger than iRiver but almost perfect sound with right input signal and gear.
Works brilliantly with a line level input, and that's the only way I use it [Built in mic is fairly useless, mic input is a bit noisy]
This is now my main recording unit - great for location and concert recording and everything really. I have a 2Gb compact flash card which records about 3 hours at CD quality audio.

JEZ RILEY FRENCH gives an overview of many affordable digital recorders for your please here : http://jezrileyfrench-aquietposition.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/a-quick-guide-to-hand-held-recorders.html

I use headphones for the majority of my composition work - keep others happy - I then master on studio speakers - many top folks work on headphones
I use Sony MDR-V700 a bit dj looking, but most effective durable and good sound and bass - hey both me and aphex twin use 'em ! + Juan Atkins etc etc

My friend Stephan Mathieu who is a hi spec guy.. uses these - says as good as monitors - I guess the best audeze lcd-x

I now use a professional XLR connection X-Y type condenser mic called the Rode NT4. MY god it is amazing. Detailed and low noise and creates a true impression of the sound source indoors and out. Good for close up and ambient recordings. As a condenser mic it is prone to wind gusts - even gentle ones so use a Rycote wind jammer. Bigger but better sound
GO TO: http://www.rode.com.au/?pagename=Products&product=NT4

top 20 over the ear Headphones

RYCOTE WIND COVER for microphone and Edirol R-09
I use Rycote wInd jammers for all my mics outdoors etc. The 'RYCOTE Special 60' is a nice small one that slips over the Rode NT4, the hand held microphonemaddness mic below and my favourite is slipping it over the top of my Edirol R-09

With the Rode NT4 I use a Beachtek DXA-10 mic pre amp with stereo XLR connections. This is 9V battery supply with 48V phantom power. Totally silent.
GO TO: http://www.dvwarehouse.co.uk/products.php?cat=188

HANDY cheap LOCATION RECORDING MICROPHONE for recording sounds through the air.
I use a wonderful Microphonemadness.com preamped omni mic for location recordings, with a Rycote fluffy wind shield. It has stereo gain control knobs, 9V amplification for increased dynamic and dB tollerence, a minjack input for external mics [like a contact mic] perfect. Good ambient sound in, good stereo, and is small and light, loud signal. bit noisy but been fine for me for most spatial recordings for a few years.
GO TO: http://www.microphonemadness.com/products/mmpreamsterm.htm

CONTACT MICROPHONE for recording sounds through surfaces.... the sounds of architecture
The Schaller 'Oyster Mic' is the best and most robust contact microphone. Robert Hampson told me about it, and ever since, the World of Sound flourished in front of my ears. Records sound through the vibration of surfaces rather than air. Fantastic source material everywhere. get a good one now.. the cheap ones are not as good - feedback, and no sticky stuff etc
GO TO: http://www.touchstonetonewoods.co.uk/ttwp46.html [product code for that site 5723]

ON STAGE Instrument/vocal MICROPHONE
I recently started to use either a BeyerDynamic M201 [industry standard] or an Audix OM3 [flatter and truer sound specification than a Sure SM57/58] dynamic microphones for using to play instruments live on stage. High gain, high anti feedback properties
GO TO: http://www.audixusa.com/products.html
GO TO: http://www.beyerdynamic.co.uk/datasheets/m201.pdf

The only mixer I use is a Mackie 1202VLZ pro. Solid, agile, small, powerful, industry standard, affordable, and an instrument itself. all their products are amazing. [but if cost is an issue then Bheringer do decent chaep copies to be starting with]
GO TO: http://www.mackie.com/products/1202vlzpro/

DOD DFX 94 : 4 sec [can be tweaked to 6 sec] sample, smooth infinity and smooth pitch shifting. My favourite and best loop pedal there is for the size and money
Digitech Echo/Plus PDS 8000 delay/looper
this is pretty much the same as the marvellous DFX94 above but with 8 seconds brother ! well worth the cash

TINY 4 port USB Hub
Model UH-174 is an amazing mini 4 port hub with integrated USB connector, and cheap as chips here

Boss PS-5 : great pitch pedal
Digitech Digiverb : great reverb pedal
Boss MT-2 : great EQ pedal

Loop Pedal information/discussion website: http://www.loopers-delight.com/loop.html

iRiver make tiny 256+Mb MP3 players that can interface with a Mac OS9 & OSX via USB. It also has Line Level input for field recording. I used to use the iRiver iFP-390T for my location recordings - tiny, reliable and good enough. not really professional, but as my work and sounds get tweaked - it does the trick, and it stays in my bag without worry or weight......
replaced by my edirol R-09

The most important thing you own is your data... your work, your photos. your tunes.
I've had sudden motherboard and hard drive deaths
ALWAYS BACK UP - it is so easy and cheap now
eg: I use Freecom Tough drive 1TB for £125 or my WD My Passport of Mac 2TB
and the software then just analyses what has changed on your system, and saves it
Really fast
Buy as many GB's as they make in the smallest size unit.

I ALSO KEEP 2 or more other hard drives and back up to them often.. I also send drives to relatives houses etc in case of fire... I do not store my work online
I am in control of where my data is... I also have a small fire and waterproof safe for data...... and keep a backup in there...
whenever I fill up a drive.. I just keep in safe as a new one is so cheap

You can indeed send the internet from your router via the mains sockets in the wall to any other socket connected to your main fuse board
Totally wild.. I got it down the the shed 100feet at the end of the garden and it took exactly 55seconds to instal.. just plug an ethernet cable at eitehr end THAT IS IT.
Get a 200MBPS speedy one like this

Mac Classic OS9 eummulator run classic apps on an intel Mac

I used an app called SoundEdit 16 for all my composiion work. It is the most basic cut&paste&layer&pitch programme I know. Very simple intuitive and powerful.
I have been using it since 1995 and it's like my painters palette or my sculptors tools kit.
So I knew I could not run it on the new Intel Macs that do not support OS9.. I thought...
BUT i then found a way to use SheepShaver to run all OS9.1 and below software on an intel YES!

I joined Demoinoid.com [recommended to use alias and other email account]
Using Transmission App which is an all inclusive ClassicOS9 app that sorts out all the impossibly hard stuff for you to enable to you launch OS9 on an intel mac... for all Apps....
Then I used the instructions below to make a new disc image .dmg, and using SSSetup GUI, I added it to the launch set up to load the new HD automatically.
Creating a Shared Hard Drive
Here's how to create a hard drive you can share between your OSX environment and SheepShaver:
Launch Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app).
Click on the "New Image" button in the toolbar.
In the sheet that's displayed, navigate to where you want to store the shared hard drive image file (I like to keep it in the SheepShaver folder), and save it with a name that means something to you (mine is called "SSShared" and I'll use that for this example), of a size that you like (or you can leave the default "40MB"), with Encryption set to "none", and Format set to "read/write disk image". Disk Utility will create the image file "SSShared.dmg", and mount it on the desktop.
In Disk Utility, select the SSShared.dmg image and click the Eject button.
Quit Disk Utility.
Launch SheepShaver GUI.
On the Volumes tab, click "Add..." and select "SSShared.dmg"
Click "Start" to run SheepShaver. It should mount the volume "SSShared" on the desktop, and you can start copying files to/from it.
The only caveat is that you get very unpredictable results if you attempt to keep the .dmg mounted in OS X at the same time as SheepShaver is running with the drive being displayed... files have been lost and the .dmg can get corrupted, so make sure you fully unmount the drive (imagine you're putting something on a floppy in one machine to carry to the next machine).

I dropped Soundedit into this new Hard Disc folder in OS9, made an alias on the desktop & I managed to get SoundEdit working just fine so far in two clicks of my mouse !

This process may well work for your lost OS9 App... search SheepShaver online to find out more top tips and issue fixing etc... good luck - it works

I also now keep an old 12" Powerbook G4 to run Sound Edit

***NOTE: in 2012 I have found a pretty close audio editing programme similar to the magestic Soundedit16
Replacement programme is call Amadeus Pro it has variable pitch and speed controls too.. I like it and now is my main pitch shifting prog
no keyboard screen interface but I use semitone controls instead

+ALSO I FOUND THIS TO BE AN EXCELLENT FULL FEATURE EDITOR - FREE Wavepad does not have multi track option so far like the Amadeus Pro

Google search for 'Janek' today comes up as #1. Not sure how really, but makes me smile of course.



www.pbs.org quote - "Installation : A work of art created for a specific architectural situation, installations often engage multiple senses such as sight, smell and hearing. Installations are generally temporary and stationary... " hmm.... is that right anymore?

sound = an audible vibration, i.e., any vibration that is capable of being heard, whether or not it actually is.
