The PCP Principle
Im posting through this journal because i dont seem to actually be able to get in to my thepcpprinciple account fpor some reason...
Anyway....21st Birthday on Saturday (finally..)....All varying shades of awesome really..
Thursday i spent being totally unconscious due to "over-smoke" but my stoned feeling the next day was quickly remidied (sp?) by going to Derby to buy Some Reveal 5a Studio monitors (no more shitty hifi speakers for me!).
I was trying to be sensible testing them out (once the guy had to be shown how to work them by yours truely...).Started playing some Pendulum through them, lots and lots of Bass :D followed by Combichrist (not normally my thing, but a good thick production to it..), followed by the ultimate test...
The mixer went up to 127 at Max...so i asked the guy how well the Reveal 5A's handle lots of Distortion and he said..."first class....push it as much as you want"
Ok.....taking out my copy of Disturbance by Winterkalte i put the Cd in and set the mixer to 95 (out of 127 - baring in mind i could feel my eyeballs vibrating in their sockets at 55!).The result was hilarious...several customers moved out of the test area and the shop assistant moved away behind a door somewhere. Anyway i was impressed so they were my main present as such (just waiting for some XLR/3.5mm cable to arrive)
Got my K49 midi controller back...fixed thankfully.Invested in a 160 GB HDD today for those truely epic tracks.And also i bought one of these:
Guitar to PC interface via USB..no amps, no fuss.....well a little but that was just crappy ASIO drivers. So hopefully i can start to incorporate some of my guitar playing into future PCP Principle Tracks....although not the standard black metal riffs i seem to play all the time!
Generally speaking i got money but also had some prize treats from people too:
Newest Katatonia album//Borat DVD//HMV Voucher//Infest Tickets//New Shirt
Didnt really do too much for it...but it was a wicked weekend...nice to spend some time with the lady and see my mates and all get caned together :D
