    More Waldorf Microwave XT Sound Samples
    Waldorf Microwave XT!

    Well, I am back sooner than expected with even more Waldorf Microwave XT Samples, a continuation from the previous entry. I have been getting some great sounds out of it lately, working the XT much like a an old school analog modular synth. Digital, strange and evil sounds have been emanating quite easily from this orange monster. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them.

    Waldorf Microwave XT
    The Orange Wavetable Monster!

    Well, it’s been quite a while since there has been new samples uploaded to Blue Distortion. As much as I would like to keep up with this site, it unfortunately sits on the back burner for long periods of time. I do apologize for that. More importantly, I would like to apologize to all of those that have emailed us in the last few months with tracks for the podcast. I haven’t been updating it recently.

    I am currently working on writing a system that will streamline the submission process and make it much easier to add tunes to the podcast. Till then, please hold tight. Now, finally, on to the new Waldorf Microwave XT samples.

    James Brown, Sampled to Death

    Posted on December 25th, 2006
    James Brown is Dead
    James Brown, lol.

    James Brown is a household name, one of the godfathers of funk and soul. He was admitted into the Emory Crawford Long Hospital with ‘severe pneumonia’ yesterday and passed away around 1:45 AM this morning. He was 73 years old.

    It is safe to say that James Brown rode the downward spiral in the last few decades. He was repeated arrested for drug possession and domestic abuse. For example, did you know James Brown spent 3 years in prison for threatening pedestrians with firearms while high on PCP? It’s the classic case of genius that self destructs into malignity. It’s easy to give respect when considering what he has done for music, but, in most cases his dark persona proceeds him.

    Pidgin IM Sound Effects (Miranda, Trillian, Skype…)

    Posted on September 5th, 2006

    It’s been a while since there has been a post on Blue Distortion, so, I decided to upload a pack of sound effects that were made specifically for Pidgin, a multi-protocol instant messaging (IM) client for Linux, BSD, MacOS X, and Windows. These can also be used for Trillian, Miranda and any other IM clients that allow you to customize the sound events.

    The volume of the samples aren’t maximized / normalized so they won’t scare the hell out of you when you have the volume up really loud on your computer. There are 12 alert sounds and 4 separate login and logout sounds. More coming soon!

    Posted on April 10th, 2006

    Here is a small tribute of electronic media to our little green friends. First, we have some sound samples packs. The first is of a plethora of frogs going through random rhythms. This was sampled in the late summer of 2005. The second sample pack is processed one hits from the first pack.
