Expanding Sound - Sega Otorii & Taito Ebina - New Gadgets Jam

Mike from Expanding Sound did a track using just the the new Sega and TAITO gadgets, while sneaking in a humble brag about owning the original Out Run arcade machine! I am so jealous. I loved the hell out of that game. Violent video games have yet to make me shoot anyone (or anything that wasn't clay or paper). However, because I learned to drive on Out Run, it is probably responsible for my "enthusiastic" driving today.

As usual Korg Gadget gives me something fun to play with. There is an abundant amount of iPad music creation software on the market today. Gadget is easily my favorite. Korg has recently released two new Gadgets for the software, Otorii and Ebina, created in collaboration with Sega and Taito. Otorii is a drum machine using sega sounds and effects. I actually own an Out Run arcade machine as well as an After Burner, so being able to play with some of the drum sounds and effects from those games is very fun. Ebina is a Taito collaboration. It is set up as a more traditional video game synth. Chip tunes as well as pads are easily created with Ebina's sound palette. I used an iPad pro, 2017 edition to create my jam with a keyboard midi controller. I Wanted to make something that had a video game feel to it. Hope you enjoy!

These new game-sound Gadgets are just sample-players, right?

What about Hollywood movies or Donald Trump?

I was about to make a joke about this, but then I remembered my healthy fear of the Secret Service.

Back in '00, then president Bill Clinton did a live chat. The Internet was shit back then and he got disconnected. A friend of mine's roommate thought it would be funny to change his name to take Bill's place. The chat was just on IRC. It was as simple as typing /name President Clinton and *boom* he's spoofing the president.

This got him (and his roommate by proxy) a visit from the Secret Service. They camped out on their shit for a week.

This got a lot of media attention at the time, and he posted a little log of his fame if you missed it:

So no, I don't want to shoot Hollywood Movies or Donald Trump either.
Ha - good story about your friend. Yeah - these days there are some things you just don't joke about.

My comment was phrased badly. It wasn't about wanting to shoot the Prez, it was more about whether Trump's talk (or Hollywood movies) makes you want to go out and murder innocent people.

LOL, yes I understood your meaning! I was just trying to make a joke to defuse the potential political baggage any other response could imply.

Very. I age again this month. Turning 40 when you never planned to make it past 27 is weird.
