A leaked track by Daft Punk and Jay Z has apparently leaked called “Computerized”. The song is believed to be an older track due to the sample of Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy song. I’m not to sure if it’s real or not but if it is a fake the person did a great job! Check it out:

Make Music Together with Blend.io

by thedj on November 25, 2013

Blend.io

Since I moved to Atlanta I’ve missed being able to go meet and work on music with so many good friends that I have met or worked with down in South Florida. So recently when going thru my reader I came across the site Blend.io. Blend.io is a site that fills the much needed gap in online music production collaboration. Blend has created an easy to use site that allows for easy downloading, editing, and auto-updating. The interface has waveform displays that are reminiscent of Soundcloud, syncs with Dropbox to create a “pull” feature which auto-updates a draft of a track as soon as someone edits it all while keeping a record of all the changes.

I have been using the site now for a few days and it seems to be an energized community without all the spam of Soundcloud and Youtube. Currently the service only accepts Ableton, Maschine & Pro Tools files but according to the developers the plan to open up to more platforms is coming in the future.

Personally what attracts me the most is the mixture of technology and music, two of my main interests. I have already started uploading and collaborating on projects which is pretty cool plus the site has metrics so you can see if you’re getting plays, followers, pulls, likes, etc.

I’ve always been a fan of open source code and we’ve seen the impact it has had on technology so I’m excited to see the impact it will have on music production.

If you want to check it out you can find me at blend.io/djsharpe. Come find me and let’s work on some music!

So I just got a new Mac at work and wanted to move my Skype chat history from my old Mac to the new one.

So here’s what I did:

    1. Locate chat archive on the old Mac: open Finder, click the “Go” button in the toolbar, and select “Go to Folder”.
    2. A window opens. Type in the following command: ~/Library/Application Support. Then hit enter.
    3. You should now be looking at a bunch of folders. Find the one called “Skype” – right-click on it and select “Compress “Skype”.
    4. Now transfer the ZIP file onto the new Mac.

Now on the new Mac:

  1. Make sure you Skype’s not running yet. The application can be installed, but NOT running.
  2. Locate the new home for your chats on the new Mac: open Finder, click the “Go” button in the toolbar, then select “Go to Folder”.
  3. Again, a window opens. Type in the following command: ~/Library/Application Support. Then hit enter.
  4. You might already see a “Skype” folder in there (if you’ve already installed Skype on your new Mac), or not – no worries. So now extract the ZIP file you created on your old Mac into the new location – overwrite the whole old Skype folder with the new one, or just create a brand new “Skype” folder, and you’re all set.
  5. Now you can now run Skype on your new Mac

Apple releases iOS 7 beta 5

by thedj on August 10, 2013

I took the plunge to iOS 7 with beta 4 about a week and half ago and at first I was skeptical and didn’t think I was going to like it. As soon as I got it loaded I was completely disappointed and upset that I let go of my jailbreak. Now a couple weeks later and the release of beta 5 I have changed my mind. The UI has now grown on me and is starting to come alive however I still feel the overall hardware does not match the feel of the UI. I’m betting that Apple is going to release a new phone in September that will bring together the overall appearance and make the iPhone shine the way it always has in the past.

With that being said here’s a list of some the changes in iOS 7 beta 5 that I like and a few I dislike.

Things I like:

  • Install screen is now the same color as your phone (white or black)
  • System wide performance improvements
  • Icons in settings app have been completely redesigned
  • New system wide Twitter icon
  • Redesigned “power off” slider
  • Option to disable Control Center within apps
  • Improved animation across entire OS
  • The transparency UI across the entire OS
  • App Store apps now show a + for universal apps
  •  Improved camera across from the lock screen
  • My iPhone 4s now has a panoramic camera built-in
  • Tweaked options in Camera app now feel smoother
  • You can now shoot a picture with the up and down volume buttons (use to be up only)

Things I’m not liking so far:

  • Message conversations only shows the first name (this can be changed thankfully in Mail, Contacts, Calendar settings)
  • Calendar app, still not a fan even with the changes
  • In Mail app, when selecting emails, Trash and Mark labels are flipped (I’m hoping this was just an evil joke and will be corrected, one of the rules of redesign she always be don’t mess with a users hard coded workflow)
  • New Yahoo! branding in Notification center for Stocks and Weather

Have you tried any of the iOS 7 betas? What were your thoughts? Leave a comment and let me know.
