GAS Therapy #14: Pink Floyd - On The Run (Groovebox Cover)

Michael from playpm is officially the 23,453,802,857th YouTuber to cover Pink Floyd's On The Run.

Video Description:

Guess I’ve kept digging Koala Sampler for a long long time, almost seems like I’m sponsored by the developer, which is not. Actually this is how things work in a healthy way, if you make good product, you got free advertising from customer.

But just like how I titled this series, if I kept introducing lots of fancy gears or apps like a review channel, it won’t be a GAS therapy, it will be a GAS triggerer, which is not what I want. I was on GAS for years, from hardware to software, and don’t really make any music. All the time and efforts I put, is just watching gear reviews and demos from one to another, imagining how it would feel to make music with, then after my purchase, it only got played once or twice, mostly would end collecting dust. I feel shame about this. I feel I was manipulated by manufactures. And from my perspective, I don’t like it.

Now what I would do, is to deconstruct the mystery behind a gear, to let me and let you know that if you really want to make music, you don’t need to break your bank, all the tools you need might be already in your hand.

So I will keep it as minimal as I can. Please don’t blame me for blabbing the same app on and on, GAS Therapy is not only for you, it’s for me too.

Stay safe, love you all,
Michael

Don't feel shame! I'm glad you found renewed purpose after GAS... I can relate.I feel my most creative phase based on actual output for theatrical sound design was long ago when I just had a Baldwin IKE (EMAX) sampling keyboard, EZ Vision, Soundesign II & Soundhack (PLEASE Tom Erbe, adapt it for IOS!!!..Everyone not familiar .. look it up!)on a Centris 650, Fostex 1/4" 8 track & Technis 1/2 track reel to reels, a MidiVerbII and a cz101 that lost ALL of its internal sounds and made only guttural farts and bloops. My gig was mostly surreal ambient soundscapes with a little "real" music tucked in. Tape loops stretched 30 feet across mic stands. All sample based and physically manipulated to within an inch of an electron's life. Glorious times!

Now my iPad is loaded with powerful apps, each with a totally GUI to grok...and it's been forever since Ive actually made much of anything. Sure I have warm fuzzies that I've supported many developers with pitifully small IOS contributions... but I lost myself somewhere.

But retirement looms and I'll winnow my process to singular apps and get these sounds out of my head and into someone else's.
