Jave and Steven decided to continue on temporarily with a new direction with new equipment and musical taste.
Jave developed an interest in marching band (snare line). Also an interest of a variety of guitar pedals; Electro-Harmonix Big Muff distortion pedal & Line 6 Delay (greenbox). He also developed an interest of the usage of the piano and synthesizers. He and Steven are involved in creating “samples” to use in their demos.
sampling is the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or a different sound recording of a song
Steven went on and discovered ProTools 8 which allows him to write songs in a quick way. He continues to drum, but along with an acoustic kit, he expanded onto an M-Audio Trigger Finger along with an Akai MPC2000, which he can upload drum samples to create new beats & sounds. He later found an interest in DJ-ing and creating his own sample sounds to use in songs as well as for scratching.
