This is a demo of some gear I am selling. Included are a DJ-Tech M10 mixer, Behringer Tweakilizer FX processor and a Numark DJ IO audio interface. Sorry about the harsh volume levels, Shotcut video editor dosen't make it clear how to control audio levels.

An experiment in unequal pattern lengths on 2 of the tracks. All sounds Elektron Model: Samples, recorded into Energy XT 3.0 w/compression from the Blockfish plugin, no other post production except Shotcut to spice the video and audio together.

Latest beat made on the Electron Model: Samples, once again with 100% sounds from my own collection, no factory sounds. Hope you enjoy!

2nd beat made entirely with files from my own collection, except for one open hi hat.

My very first beat made with samples 100% from my own collection, no factory sounds.

An old song of mine, written before 2006. Words & music by Moe Shinola, all rights reserved. Recorded into Cakewalk by Bandlab using Takamine acoustic guitar, Cakewalk Studio Instruments bass guitar and drum kit, Groove Monkee MIDI files, and Cube microphone.

Here's a song I just finished, a parody of John Lennon's "Imagine" with original lyrics by me lampooning the arrogance of the Davos set who've decided they can run all our lives. Again, this is PARODY, no copyright infringement intended.
LYRICS:
Enjoy your stay in Davos
Your betters welcome you
The planet is our country, and our religion too
Imagine all your rulers
Under just one roof
We may sound kinda creepy
Like a religious cult
Denouncing birth and family
Proclaiming "Gaia vult!"
Reducing all you sheeple
To half a billion, tops
You may think I'm a villain
You wouldn't be the only one
But I just have one question
Why do you need that gun?
Imagine owning nothing
You're gonna learn real soon
When your market crashes
Like a popped balloon
Just think of all the people
Eating all the bugs, oh
No more carbon cow farts
It's a mandate now
But you won't miss your sirloin
Just eat your mealworm chow
And we'll smile as you swallow
Pretending we do, too
So savor your middle class existence, soon to tumble in the flood
Soon to tumble in the flood
That sinks your money, jobs and
homes, now,
Leaves you languishing in a pod
At least we're done with lockdowns
Finally in the clear
Til those pesky midterms
Re-start the Covid scare
Yeah, it may be your body
But it sure ain't your choice, no
But there's always Ukraine
Let freedom call you there
To fight our rival Putin
And not make trouble here
Just stay weak and divided
As your time runs out
As we enjoy your destruction
From far above the lowly mob
And there ain't no way you'll ever join us
'Cuz you ain't in this big club

Words/Music by Moe Shinola, written in 2001-3, somewhere in there. Recorded in Energy XT 3.0 using Linplug RM III sampler + Groove Monkee midi files for drums, Sfz soundfont player for bass, Tagima Woodstock Series 55 copy for all guitars and Shure mic.

Cover version of a Synthwave tune I like, Video made with Nikon Coolpix camera, I had to re-record the audio into Cakewalk after trying(and failing) to record audio into a Tascam DR-05(the audio went in too loud). A couple of sounds are missing from this cover, Maybe with experience I can lean to pack more into the sequencer, but as it is, I have 3 drum parts, 4 melody parts and a sample I pitched manually the way Gabe Miller showed how in one of his tutorials. Thanks to Gabe for answering a couple on my newbie comment questions and to folks on other forums who also offered advice. Used the Delorean Dream Circuit Tracks pack.

Hooked up my Volca Bass, fading it in as I fade out Synth 1, applying reverb & delay, then changing keys before returning to Synth 1 for the finale. Cameo from Zorro the Cat, and he dosen't even charge union scale!

Tried to follow Gabe Miller's beginner tutorial, got pretty close if I do say so. This is the first time I've really worked with since it arrived two days ago.

Here's a new version of a song of mine from a few years ago. Here are the lyrics:

If you, my friend, are worried
in the same way that I am
From seein' Captain Ahab
Where once stood Uncle Sam
on meaningless vendettas
waged on made-up enemies
and includin' our neighbors in with these

I think a healthy disregard is well-advised
when grown-ups abdecate and children supervise
and brush our freedoms with the brush suspicion tarred
I hope I see some healthy disregard

Oh, don't you wonder why
we're led to think authority's
invested in some scary "them"
and not the common "we"?
and you who hold a shield
ain't it time you looked inside
and see the face your helmets hide?

You might think a healthy disregard is well-advised
can't we be countrymen instead of warring sides?
who treat our neighborhoods like Folsom Prison yard
I hope I see some healthy disregard

So, when they mention things
that if we see, we'd better say
so folks who make us nervous
can be neatly dragged away
remember what our Grandma's
generation would've thought
and all the injustices they fought

They had a healthy disregard for stupid rules
and not much indulgence for legalistic fools
so when some punk decides to play some fascist card
I hope I see some healthy disregard

Yeah, I hope I see some healthy disregard!

Instant composition using the Korg Volca Beats, Korg Volca Bass and Alto VMX122 mixer w/FX. The delay on the Volca Bass is from the mixer.

This one is like Andrea's Birthday Song, an old guitar piece done in an alternate tuning I don't remember. Hope you enjoy.

Recorded 12-15 years ago, using an alternate guitar tuning I don't remember how to do anymore. Good luck trying to figure it out.

Riff - E - F - A - B - D - E(3x), E - F - A - D - G(1x),
Riff - Bb power chord - Db power chord - Riff

Just how to play the main riff to this Bryan Adams song.

Classic 808 beats recreated, from Marvin Gaye, Afrika Bambaata, Cybotron, A Guy Called Gerald, Beastie Boys, Phil Collins, and Adonis

Here's me after copying several classic TR-909 beats from songs by Inner City, Daft Punk, Jeff Mills, Madonna, Laurent Garnier, Faithless, Orbital and Gorillaz. The Clap sound, the Open Hat and Cymbal sounds I found way higher in pitch than on the 909, too much for exact copies.

Debuting my Donner Revecho, effecting the Volca Bass. No FX on the Drumbrute except it's own distortion.

Some variations on a bassline I learned how to make from watching a YouTube video.

Just hooked them up, playing a preset pattern on each.

The legendary sound of the Roland TB-303, recreated are Behringer.
