    TwinsthenewTrend Listening to Bob Dylan the First Time

    This is so great. These young people have a whole channel dedicated to listening to new music. They say that because they had a religious family, growing up they weren't allowed to listen to a lot of different genres of music. In this video they listen to Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A...

    Weird Strymon Timeline Loop Problem

    Wondering if anyone has every experienced this. When I'm controlling the Timeline with my Midi controller (Softstep) if I stop the loop and press play more than once it either won't play, or it will play segments of previous loops. In other words, I'll have a loop going. Stop it, and then...

    Beautiful Lou Reed Audition Story

    From drummer Dougie Bowne: The Lou Reed Story Lou Reed's manager had called me up to audition for Lou's band, maybe 1981 or so, and I'd heard that he could be brusque, so I arrive early to check out the kit, do a little tune up. The instruments could be brutal in New York rehearsal studios. I...

    New Mitski Album

    Was shocked to find that there were only 6 threads on the TGP about this amazingly talented songwriter. Her new album is great - a bit less raw than her previous albums, but I like the production. And the songs have the same wonderful brilliant twists. Here's a track from her last album...

    Congress, It's Time to Pay Musicians. NYTIMES Op-ED

    Really great Op-ED in the NYTIMES on Sunday about the Music Bus bill. This really gets to the heart of the matter, and talks about how middle income musicians have been so affected by by the rise of the internet/piracy/streaming. Since moving to Canada four years ago, I've seen how these types...

    M9 direct into looper

    Does anyone know if there's an easy way to disable the tap tempo function of the M9 so that it goes straight into the looper? I don't use tap tempo and the delay to get into the looper is too too long. Would like to just cut it out. Or perhaps a way to program an external expression switch...

    Happy Birthday to the Great Robert Quine

    Happy Birthday to the great Bob Quine! True story. The first "nice" guitar I ever saved up for was my custom built Rick Kelly tele. I ordered it after playing a gig with Marc Ribot in Rotterdam. Ribot had his 57 telecaster with him, and I played a G chord on it and it was the most glorious...

    A History of Phone Calls with Dr. Yusef Lateef.

    Such a beautiful story about my teacher, Dr. Yusef Lateef, who passed away two years ago. So many of the things in this story ring true, from meeting him at the Black Sheep, to how he would always ask about my grandmother when we talked on the phone. I'll never forget hearing him play every week...

    Hey All, So I just made a DDP image of my new album to send to get pressed into CDs, and I noticed that the DDP folder is 775 MB. The thing is, the folder of WAV files that I bounced is over a gigabyte. Does DDP compress the files in anyway? Or is something wrong here?
