FLOW 16 – Arrival (Break Beats 4)

FLOW 16 – Arrival (Break Beats 4)

Not another flow video *facepalm* I realize this flow series is not my most popular to date.  This is the last one I’ll post until I can improve it.  If you have any suggestions, let me know. I’m working on a video (series?) showing how I use my mixcube.  I’m going to set up a linear omni and create/mix a 4 bar loop.  You’ll be able to see and

Mixcubes – 5 Hidden Features

What if I told you that aliens lived on the back of a mixcube?  Whether you believed me or not is irrelevant because you don’t actually know what’s back there, do you?  Mixcubes 5 hidden features are what most people don’t talk about.  Keep reading to find out more. If you want to read Amazon customer reviews on the mixcube, click here. Now that I’ve shaken your view of

Mixcubes – 16 Reasons to Buy

Mixcubes – 16 Reasons to Buy

Mixcubes are one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make. Get some mixcubes here before you make another bad mix. A studio owners need a few things: a way to record, good technique and acoustic treatment.  However, without great monitoring, none of that does any good.  Great monitoring means different things to different people.  Despite those differences, one value is a persistent constant: midrange matters.  I give you

Maple Enemata (8BE)

Maple Enemata (8BE)

I feel like such a shitbag with this “Maple Enemata”. I made this track called “Maple Enemata” almost two weeks ago and I didn’t even make a post about it. Getting my YouTube channel and this blog working together is something that’s going to take time. I hope you appreciate the effort 🙂 This song was made to help diminish the virgin population. Actually I made it to test

Sonimus Satson Plug-in Comparison Shootout

Sonimus Satson Plug-in Comparison Shootout

We all wanna be big, big stars. We got different reasons for that but I’m pretty sure we share the common fantasy of going to the studio, sitting behind the console, snorting blow while getting blown by height-challenged groupies.  Or maybe that’s just me.  Welcome to my satson plug-in comparison shootout. Regardless, that image just doesn’t seem as cool if the console was replaced with a laptop – much

My Last Video :(

My Last Video :(

It’s over: my last video. 2016 has come and gone like the heartbreaker he was and now my last video. It was a productive year for Hexspa.  I moved to a new apartment, released the Uncomfortable EP Pt. 1 and made about 10 Dance tracks under the 8 Bar Embryo playlist. We also launched One True Path Acoustics – subscribe over there for all your acoustics stuff.  We’ll be

deadmau5 Masterclass Sucks?

deadmau5 Masterclass Sucks?

Some people say the deadmau5 masterclass sucks! That’s the kind of thing I’m hearing on Facebook groups regarding deadmau5′ new Masterclass.  Whether it’s expectations or attitude that’s driving that negativity, I’m not sure.  Regardless, I empathize with those sentiments a bit.  Do I think the deadmau5 masterclass sucks? I’ve been granted early access to the class which I received for my birthday.  I’m a fan of mau5′ music and

Superstar Unlimited

Superstar Unlimited

Hey.  This track, “Superstar Unlimited”, was made using deadmau5′ “Superliminal” as a reference. I’m currently taking his Masterclass.  It’s cool.  I haven’t gotten to the mixing section yet.  I could use it though since I’m currently mixing the Uncomfortable EP Pt. 2. Just wanted to give you guys some insight into how I made this. -m

What is Hexspa?  Part 5

What is Hexspa? Part 5

Parts one, two, three and four. So it’s come to this. It was the EDM revolution.  America remembered it could dance.  How fitting that Dubstep had no identifiable dance.  Good time to shake off the rust I suppose. Working in the Pro Audio department of the Stupidly American music store, I was surrounded by a DJ and a grad of Pyramind.  Between these two “colleagues” and being lambasted while
