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 prefer speakers. There is nothing like the sound of a really excellent speaker moving air through a room. Headphones are an excellent way to immerse yourself in ambient music though. It will eliminate the need for a good room and an excellent…"

"FYI. Search the Interwebs for a used MOTU Timpiece AV *serial NOT USB* rack. They can be had for $25-50 USD and will do everything the T8 does as well as all the filtering, re-channeling, re-mapping, etc you can think of. Note: the serial versions…"

"Good idea Jack. So you are saying just use it not plugged into a computer via the Serial port. Just as a stand alone midi router?"

"Great post Jeffrey. I can relate to so many of the areas that challenge and bring out some fear. Having been a classical musician before it is something I can completely relate to. It is interesting you mention that flying is more important and that…"

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.

Ever since diving into the world of analog modulars the one thing that has always impressed me even more than the sound is the quality of the components. Wonderful solid feeling knobs and potentiometers that…

I plan on adding a few free tracks from time…
