in PRODUCTION TIPS
I promised to post some production tips, so let’s kick off with a workflow-related tip which I find myself using a lot in Cubase. Say you have recorded a long take of mangled drums for example, and you’ve cut out the best pieces of this take and deleted the rest of the take. The track in question would look something like this:
Now, you would like to join these pieces of audio together again so that they’re easier to continue working with, for instance for a second round of resampling. A really quick way of achieving this is by (1) selecting all the parts except the first, (2) entering shuffle mode and (3) dragging your selection to the left a little bit. Like so:
The result? All audio parts are now neatly arranged side by side. Nice and easy.
If you have cut out pieces of audio from a long take of unquantized material, such as a recording of various foley sounds or whatever, using this tip in conjunction with quantize can do wonders for quickly creating rhythmical sequences out of any type of audio.

It’s the title of my next album, and I’ve put up a teaser:
Don’t hold your breath for an immediate release though – a lot of work is still left, but I thought it’d be nice to post up some excerpts from time to time anyway

I’m still working on my new album, and probably will be for a while yet. I’d say it’s 50% finished as of now. It will include some tasty acoustic sounds courtesy of my new recording equipment, as well as a lot of tasty electronic sounds created with some juicy analog equipment (and I’m using a healthy amount of digital stuff as well; I don’t discriminate).
I’m also doing a collaboration with Espen Gulbrandsen, the first fruits of which were released this spring on Baroque records. We’re into moody, old school techno. If you’re on Spotify, you’re in luck: Espen & Knut – Margin of Error (Original Mix)
Finally, I’m also helping Snasen with his new album, which is going to be great for sure!

It’s long overdue, but the new site has finally launched. I’ve built this on top of WordPress using the wonderful H5BP and Bones. I’m hoping to get some blogging action going, so stay tuned for production tips, the odd rant, and of course updates about my music and other projects I might get myself tangled up in. See ya!
