Hello, I'm Bryan Baker. I flirted with music and recording when I was a kid. Experimenting with portable reel-to-reel recorders, then doing 8-track collages and silly kid stuff. Got my first 4-track in college and soon after found Option Magazine around 1983. A few years later I started publishing a zine called GAJOOB featuring home recording artists. I never talked much about my own recordings in the zine, but I like making everything from rock songs to crazy sound experiments. I do a lot of the latter at tapegerm.com. I'm just getting into Logic Pro now and still exploring and having fun. Hit me up for a collaboration or something.
This morning I was looking for my clipboard so I could fill out a jury notice I received in the mail yesterday.
It was on top of a stack of old mail which is sitting on a table in my bedroom which holds a rack of old outboard effects and whatnot. Clipped to the clipboard is roughly 25 sheets of ruled paper, the top paper consisting of the start of a song; one verse (pictured).
The lyric reads:

Crystal is a semi-modular software synthesizer featuring both subtractive synthesis and frequency modulation (FM) synthesis.

Not only that, Crystal has wave sequencing, granular... -- read post
Winner of the 2006 KVR Developer Challenge, Triple Cheese is a unique-sounding freeware synthesizer plugin. Triple Cheese doesn't use any of the classic synthesis techniques – substractive, FM or additive – but various forms of comb filter i.e. very short chromatically tuned delays. The three cheese modules in a row either generate their own signal, or process the output of the previous module.

I've started down a new path exploring new recording methods with an iPad Pro 9.7 Inch.
It's a different approach for me, coming from very basic DAWs like Bias Deck and ACID. Before that I was on 4-track, so this has been a long time coming.
I guess I've always created in phases. I made 100's of recordings on 4-track cassette in the 80's and 90's, tapering off as GAJOOB became a focus and then the beginning of homemademusic.com as an online store and shortrun CD distributor.
