A fun night down memory lane

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Sevan @ 2:40 am

2 years ago today / yesterday a journey began for me & I wanted to write about the experience & what I’d taken away from it, as I started taken notes I found looking through old emails brought back lots of memories & so tonight I dug further & ended up looking through photos. It’s been fun looking through the past & as I finished, I went to change my twitter photo & discovered that there is now a facility to request your Twitter archive. Once you’ve placed a you’re notified that it may take some time, I received an email almost immediately with a link to download a zip archive of my entire timeline.
The zip file contains everything needed to read you archived timeline. I had a brief look at mine & stopped after the first months worth of tweets, too much past for one night, I’ve been down that lane already just before.

Request timeline

Your Twitter archive is ready

I got chatting to two elderly ladies about what I was reading in the coffee shop earlier today, as I left I overheard one of the ladies refer to me as “a very nice boy”, if only they knew the sales terms of the book, I didn’t know at the time, please don’t think badly of me!

First mix of 2013

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — Sevan @ 5:25 pm

I’ve started buying music digitally trying to build up a collection again & thought I’d try recording something to see how it works out, nothing really planned, just picked an opening record & went from there, lots of room for improvement but it was fun to record.

Recorded on a pair of Vestax PDX-3000 Mk II turntables, Serato SL2, Allen & Heath Xone:22 mixer via a FocusRite Saphire LE firewire sound card on a MacBook Air.

Track list
Virginia, Solar & Poppcke – Our Days
Terry Lee Brown Jr – Chatterbox (Original Mix)
Vinayak A – Set Her Free (Martin Buttrich Remix)
Shur-I-Kan – Conundrum (Original Mix)
Two Right Wrongens – System Error
Maya Jane Coles – What They Say (Dyed Soundorom Remix)
Deetron – Starblazer (Original Mix)
Lance DeSardi – The Power Of Suggestion (Original Mix)
Danny Howells – Laid Out (Fully Horizontal Mix)
Guy Gerber – The Golden Sun and the Silver Moon (Original Mix)
Agoria – Dust feat Scalde (Rocco Vision Mix)

DJing with a digital setup has had me running into some strange issues, this time the disk my audio files were stored on was plugged into a USB hub, this caused very strange behaviour in Scratch Live, with the music cutting out on two separate occasions & not registering the music is playing.
My firewire sound card is connected via a thunderbolt adapter & whilst there’s sufficient power on the bus to power the unit without a separate power supply, it’s not possible to perform firmware updates via this adapter as I found out by temporarily bricking my device, luckily the firmware update completed successfully using a Mac which had a firewire port onboard and restored functionality.
