A.ron Hubbard – 60 millions listeners, Escaping a cult and Psychic squids rain (PeaCreaPod#06)

A.ron Hubbard (@BaldMove) is a podcaster, author and co-creator of the BaldMove.com podcast network.

Baldmove’s impressive catalogue of pop-culture podcasts was downloaded over 60 millions times, with their Game of Thrones show reaching the #1 spot on the american itunes chart.

A feat even more impressive considering that A.ron and his co-host (and Baldmove co-creator) Jim Jones were raised as members of a religious cult forbidding most tv-shows & movies.

We talk about how he escaped the cult and started his life over from scratch, his book Gods of Thrones on the religions of Game of Thrones and of cours, the art of podcasting.

Abe Lincoln’s technique to easily create tracks (and kill Writer’s Block)

Did you know that J.K. Rowling took 5 years to create and develop every last detail of the Harry Potter world?
THEN she actually sat and started writing.
If you want to easily create tracks, you gotta listen to Abraham Lincoln:

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

Going to a new place without setting the GPS or taking a map seems adventurous at best and more likely dangerous or irresponsible…Yet it’s often what we do when we start a new track.
There’s the spark, the drive to create and we just go for it without planning.
Sometimes it works and it’s beautiful (the creative genius, right?) but other times, we end up stuck in the middle and drop the project.
We’ll see Abe’s wise words can save us hours of torment and help us easily create tracks (and kill Writer’s Block in the process). Continue reading “Abe Lincoln’s technique to easily create tracks (and kill Writer’s Block)”

Don’t cheat on Live with Reaper: Ableton Live 9 and video, how to make it work

Have you ever been in a relationship where you love everything about the other person…except one detail?

It’s not enough to stop the relation of course…but every time this thing (let’s say she doesn’t like Deerhoof) comes up, it makes you question everything.

Well, I love everything about Ableton Live 9…except the way it deals with video.

Live was for live performance only, then it was for electronic musicians only…but it has now evolved into a multi-function machine (like all the other DAW, arguably).
Still, Ableton Live 9 and video are not a winning team which apparently helps Reaper becoming the industry standard for game audio.

I considered being unfaithful to my beloved Live 9 and go with the slanderous Reaper…but then decided to rather invest in the relationship. The support who just blew my mind with their professionalism. I had such a nice combination of problems that I now have a full roadmap to help You with:

  • why Ableton Live 9 can’t import video files (the forbidden symbol and the “File could not be read…” error message)
  • what to do when the video remains black (and a cool workaround if nothing else work)
  • how to deal with sluggish videos

So ditch the mistress and let’s reconciliate Ableton Live 9 with video!
