An Old Album - Learning Curve

I finally decided to upload my FIRST CD from 2000 called "Learning Curve." This was the first album that I recorded on computer using audio tracks in Cakewalk Home Studio 7. There were only FOUR audio tracks available, with unlimited MIDI, so I did a lot of track "bouncing". It was NOT easy.

I recorded using my trusty 1986 Yamaha SSJ-550 HR (pre-Dimarzio pickups), a Zoom 505 Pedal, and my Radio Shack Casio-Clone MIDI keyboard. It was mixed and mastered "direct-to-CD" on a Philips/magnavox CD recorder/burner.

Give it a day or so, and you will be able to download it from THIS link. Click HERE!

Or go to http://archive.org/details/dx_learning-curve/ and stream/listen to it, then download whatever you want.

Remember, this is my FIRST official "CD" as Dimaension X, so the production isn't that great. I was listening heavily to Ministry, Tangerine Dream, Skinny Puppy, Die Krupps, KMFDM, Nine Inch Nails, Filter, etc. A lot of industrial stuff, along with Bill Laswell, Buckethead, Praxis, and other very avant-garde heavy bands.

Note that the cover art is brand new. Fancy, huh?

This album is a pretty good indication of "where I was" musically (and personally) in the year 2000.
