To those who have passed before me (Sal and Matt here I'm thinking)



I must say making an album is an amazing, strange, painful, joyful, and head-screwing experience. Your dedication and expertise, especially in making an album of such high production quality, is absolutely appreciated here. As I learn this whole process myself, I am astounded at the complexity of sound that I've always taken for granted. If you find pirates, let me know and I will corner them in a dark place and break their legs for them.


Your devoted listener and student,

Ah, yes, Terminatryx. We have quite an interesting pedigree attached to our bands. In the olden days there was a band called VOD. The two brothers now both have their own bands. Paul in Terminatryx and Francois in Kobus, teamed up with the ex-guitarist from Springbok Nude Girls, whom I remember from the days when it was only me and a friend who bothered to get up and dance when the band took to the stage. So much has changed with some of our musos getting it together to start touring in the States and Europe.

I think if we'd had half the social networking tools back then that we have now, things might have been very different.

I know zilch about South Africa, but you have me intrigued at the scene. Especially after hearing that one band you've been promoting.

Ah, I know of ProTools. In retrospect I'm glad I didn't study music further than high school. Our music industry changed a lot in South Africa in my generation. It's quite possible to have a real career.

Well the reason I mentioned Logic is because it makes it possible to record and mix your stuff a lot easier, even you Ms. Bass guitar player. ;)

Again, I'm old school too. I actually want to study music production myself, and I'm glad I waited because the industry changed. Definitely check out Logic or even ProTools if you get a chance, especially with you forming a band.

Heh... Well, erm... I did kinda study sound engineering more than 10 years ago. Guess it shows, huh? But I remember that day I sat behind a big 24-track Mackie desk the first time and was able to remix my own band's music. That was magic. Pure, pure magic. Doubt I'll ever get anywhere near recording ever again. I just want to have fun playing music now. Especially that I don't have pressure on me to make it my living.

Nerine, we use Logic which eliminates the need for the big sound boards. I was skeptical at first but I believe now. Oh yes.

It's even more awe-inspiring sitting behind a huuuuge mixing desk. Spent one year studying (and failing) sound engineering. The best part is getting to mix music you've created, a very intimate task... But also difficult then having the guts to show someone what you've made.

Thanks Carrie
