magOwl – Page One

Update: The free downloads on bandcamp has run out, more will be available in a couple of weeks. Nothing I can do about it. So if you want any of the albums on there you’ll have to spend a few quid.

So December 21st has arrived and as promised here’s Page One, my latest collection of beats and oddities.

You can grab it for free over at magowl.bandcamp.com.

This is a selection of beats from the last year, year and a half, or so. Some are entries from the LouisDen beatbattles (www.louisden.com), so if you’re keeping tabs you might have heard a few. But on the other hand there are others on here that should be new to any and all.

The lot was produced by me, magOwl, using Renoise (www.renoise.com) aided by the old Ensoinq EPS 16+, the Boss SP-303 and a healthy amount of vinyl.

Go get it, listen, enjoy, tell a friend!


Testing the SP-303

Just playing around with my new toy. First beat made on it, never touched one before so it’s no masterpiece. Everything played with quantize off, recorded into patterns, yeah I know, but I’m not good enough to try it live yet :)


Vinyls & Music Equipment

I bought an entire vinyl collection the other day, 2000+ records all in all, so I got my work cut out going through all that over the summer, looking forward to it tho. I also bought me the little SP-303 from Boss/Roland, and I quite like it, a nice little machine. Here’s a couple of pics showing some of the vinyls and one of the 303…
