Passion for audio
Hi there, I am Dan Stanley and this is some info about me, why and what for.
24bit has for a long time been my playground for testing out various CMS tools and also my passion for electronic music and sounddesign. I love diving into almost everything thats has somekinda technical or computerized flow. I love progress, but with age I have surely become better at selecting what is really progress and what is retrogression. Also I love to share this knowledge about audio, music and webdesign.
I started playing piano at 7-8 years, tried bass, trumpet and violin too. Ended up playing keyboard and thru the 80´s and 90´s I had a ton of analog gear all over my little dorm room. Then I built a smaller studio and started to use Atari computers running Cubase(which in fact was promoted as Cubix at release), and Emagic Logic. Then I went on to use Adap II Harddisk recording and still had a ton of various hardware samplers, drummachines, Effectunits and synths. At some point I went from Atari to PC, and when the PC market exploded things happend fast. Still I used Cubase for a while, then I tried Reason and finally went for Ableton Live. And everything I do nowadays are done in the box, still using my keyboard and Push 2 controller and too many plugins, way too many. Main DAWS are Ableton Live and Cockos Reaper.
I have played in a couple of bands and also done some collaboration releases. Had a couple of tracks on our national radio and have also been involved in some underscoring for a couple of underground film.
My main influence since listening to my older brothers music must be Pink Floyd, Einsturzende Neubauten, The Residents, Steve Roach, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Dead Kennedys, Frontline Assembly and around a million more, mostly from the 80´s I must admit:-)
