Is there a drum pad interface available, like a keyboard but instead 16 soft rubber pads (aka Roland R8, Akai, ect)?

Yikes, new songs! [21 Nov 2007|08:35pm]

garlicfiend
As I've been transitioning, I've continued making music. However, I haven't shared it with any, and most of the songs haven't gotten finished.

It's been hard. I'm having to learn to sing all over again with a new voice, trying to develop a solid high voice with out it sounding like a guy singing falsetto.

I just put two new songs up on my Virb profile.

If you want to go and check them out, they are stormchaser and stories -- you have to scroll down on the player to see them.

Neither are completely "finished" (stories ends very abruptly), but I thought I would at least put these out there, keep me from hiding from the world.

Melbourne: Upstart Alley IV - Saturday 24th November - with Ikochi (Japan) - cross posted [16 Nov 2007|04:42pm]

imyerjoeyramone
Come on down to the Northcote Social Club to witness the (not so) straight out punk and rockabilly antics of Ikochi all the way from Tokyo. This three piece outfit-with the gender defying stage singer/guitarist Chikako and death defying bass player Minato Kota-are ready to shake things up. With support from Melbourne's The Minority delivering their unashamedly daring, queer electro rock! More tunes from DJ Linx and DJ Aztek with the fabulous Roxy Bullwinkle playing host!

Upstart Alley is a not for profit crew putting on a range of events that welcome all you misfits who punch and leak outta the boxes and beyond. At Upstart Alley freaks and queers lurk in the dark corners doing dirty beautiful things and all the gender fuckers are dancing on the pavement, making their own meanings and building their own communities.

New to this community [07 Oct 2007|12:55am]

genderqueer08
Hello,

I am new to this community, this livejournal username, and the trans community.  I used to be on livejournal back in highschool, but it's been 4 or 5 years since I have used it. I figured it was time for something new!

My identity is kind of complicated and hard to describe because I don't feel like I was born in the wrong body.  Instead, I identify is a genderqueer, bigender, two-sprited boy.  I feel like I have aspects of both genders (leaning more to the male side), living in a female body.

MELBOURNE: looking for a rockabilly/punk singer!! - cross-posted [21 Sep 2007|04:06pm]

imyerjoeyramone
hey some friends and i are starting a rockabilly influenced punk band... a bit psychobilly...maybe a bit of swing maybe a bit of ska.. ya never really know...

anyways we havent actually jammed yet but at the moment we are listening to a lot of desparado 5, fireballs, the stray cats, mad sin, operation ivy, brian setzer, amazing royal crowns, royal crown revue.... hopefully you get the picture...

apart from being able to pull off the singing part and being into rockabilly/punk - other things we are looking for in a singer include - no big drinkers/drug users, reliable, queer/trans friendly, no racist/sexist/classist folks, someone politically charged, left wing ...


anyways if you are keen to talk more or know someone who could be then let me know.

cheers,

ash

Affordable USB audio for recording [12 Jan 2007|10:07am]

pkbarbiedoll
Yes yes I know I could hop on down to Music World and use American Express to buy the latest $10,000 technology, but let's pretend I don't have an amex or that much money to spend.

So.. Anyone have suggestions on an affordable USB input device which will alllow mulitiple track recording? I need more than 4 ins (2 pairs) -- I'm thinking at least 8 1/4" ins with an xlr or two.

thankee-sai.

It'll Never Sound the Same Again... [09 Nov 2006|11:40pm]

changelingjane
It's a half-assed parody, I'll admit, but it made me laugh when it popped in my head. I wrote it in a way that I could sneak it in on unsuspecting people at a kareoke night sometime. That's just my style.

This goes out to all you girls just starting off!

Cut for oddball humor, a little swearing, and a sexual reference...Collapse )

Hello! [13 Sep 2006|12:36pm]

[ mood | greetful XD ]

I'm not sure that I introduced myself to this group yet. I'm a 25-year-old girl (born... mostly male;), living in Cleveland and working as a waitress. I'm a singer and guitarist, and have written in a bunch of genres, including metal, classical (or some imitation thereof), pop, rock, electronica, and film- and game-style music. I have a couple clips of more recent stuff I've been working on here. Glad to meet y'all :)

I'm Jayden, 18 years old and a frosh in a local community college. My major is performance arts: music, and I am a musician... sort of. I play (or did), the trumpet and hope to start playing the guitar, drums, and keyboard soon. Music is my passion, which is why I want to work in production. Oh, I'm also a pre-op, pre-T transfag. :)

Greetings. My name Felix, and I am a pre-op/pre-HRT mtf transexual, and sometimes I dabble in creating music. I've been lurking here for a little while, but have been waiting to actually join/post until I had something to share.

Recently, I finished constructing my Music Archive, and it is now open to the public. Hope y'all pop on over there and give it a listen, maybe even comment once or twice :)

So... I'm taking a choir class (beginning voice) because I love to sing and sang a lot before starting transition, but then gave up completely on it since. Anyways, I have to sing a song solo (possibly with accommanyment) in front of the class and I really really really really don't want to sound like a transsexual.

My problem is that I haven't found a peice and I have no idea what to consider within my abilities, no soprano parts, I think I can confidantly sing contra-alto and most of the alto range but I need to work on making it sound authentically feminine.

Any suggestions along the classical, musical, etc. lines?

Thanks again to Pane for sharing his song in the post below..  he inspired me to post something of my own, which really isn't so new but it is newly recorded.. 

X Girl Pool - Domain.mp3 

That's something originally performed with my old band The Girl Pool many years ago, which I recently recorded again to try out my new Maya 1010 audio interface.. I think the levels sound okay but would love your feedback on the mix, if you feel so compelled.

budget PC recording [23 Sep 2005|07:57am]

pkbarbiedoll
I'm currently using a BR864 for home demos, which is fine except when I need to record drums. Boss provided only two inputs (via stereo RCA) which means I have no way of mixing individual drum levels after recording.

So does anyone make & sell a PC card that accepts more than two ins, and which is made with starving artists in mind?

thanks!
