Profile Information

Tell us about yourself!
Chad Kettering began his musical journey as a professional trumpet player. For many years he performed with various orchestras and small ensembles throughout Texas and Colorado. Along this path he discovered the unlimited power of pure sound as an art form through the use of electronic instruments, digital workstations and audio sound processors. Drawing upon techniques used in sound design and musique concrete along with the inspiration of ambient electronic music pioneers, Chad patiently developed his sound and approach over several years to emerge with a deeply personal and accomplished musical statement. Today he continues to push these influences into new directions.

I picked up a product from Midi Solutions called the T8. …See More

DIY Midi Controller Project

Posted on July 15, 2014 at 6:00pm 6 Comments

For years I have been looking for the best midi controller. There are a ton of options out there but many of them are designed with cost as the driving factor. Quality parts are never used and you are left with a heap of plastic that doesn't feel like a quality interface to the touch.

Wonderful solid feeling knobs and potentiometers that…

I am pleased to announce that all of my albums are now available for purchase at Bandcamp.

I plan on adding a few free tracks from time…
