While perusing the latest edition of Electronic Musician, I chanced upon the Enos Looper by Audio Damage.Much as I love doing loops on my iPad with Simpler, Borderlands, and iDensity, I have been looking for a more basic looper to add to the iOS arsenal. I was intrigued enough to plop down $5.99 USD and check it out, only to learn that , while it can be used for basic looping and Frippertronics, ala the Ableton Live Looper, it is capable of much more. I recommend checking out the video. (It demos the plugin, but they are very close).
In the four years since we spotlighted Mike Baggetta he has been a busy man. He has relocated from New York City to Knoxville, Tennessee; played on David Torn’s Sun of Goldfinger record; gigged with Nels Cline playing lap steel (Cline on steel, not Baggetta), and released Wall of Flowers [Big Ego Records]. The last features a true supergroup power trio, ala a modern day Cream, as Baggetta, Mike Watt, and session legend, Jim Keltner join forces. Knoxville being relatively close to Nashville, Baggetta has been playing here quite a bit and took time before a gig at Rudy’s Jazz Club to come over and talk about Wall of Flowers and the joys of looping with a TimeFactor.
I can’t believe it has been four years since I spoke to Eivind Aarset, the guitarist largely responsible for sending me on this Guitar Moderne journey. Now is the perfect time, as he is featured on four new records. We spoke about three of them, and surprise, surprise, his first new guitar in, well, forever.
Over a month into this and Bluehost has been unable to resolve my email issues. I haven’t been able to send mail from one account and in the process of trying to fix it I deleted email@example.com from my Mac Mail. The issues I am having getting into my account have prevented me from checking any mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am not sure if post notices are being sent from that address or not, so if you get a notice that this post is up, please let me know in the comments (NOT BY REPLYING TO THE EMAIL). If I find that people are getting the email announcement of a new post, I will start posting again while trying to fix the other email issues. In the meantime please Like the Guitar Moderne Face Book page. Thanks for your patience.
