  • The Real and Imaginary of The Tea Party Live

    With The Tea Party back together and touring again, and after seeing three live shows since last year’s reunion, I thought I’d set down some collected thoughts on the band’s catalogue and live performances. Naturally, this is all subjective, but I’ve provided links to the studio versions of the songs I mention, so you can […]

I used a DE-9 male connector, so I actually have 2 pins free for potential future additions (I wonder if I can cram something in there to output a MIDI-compatible tempo clock signal based on […]

  • Nice Rack

    After more than 4 years of slow construction, I’m a few pieces away from having the originally planned Ultimate DJ Rack complete. I was excited to find out OtsDJ finally had a new (major) release, with a shitload of features I’d been waiting for for years. But bummer, the system requirements jumped from well within […]
