Geeky Gigs, an 8 bit and retro inspired live drums and DJ series


If you haven’t seen my Geeky Gigs web show, please check it out. Above is a playlist of all my geeky gigs so far. These are all solo performance videos of me playing several different pieces of equipment and software.

I spend some time playing drums to the Korg M01D on Nintendo 3DS, explore Vocaloid in a song with live drums and Megpoid GUMI, and show you some ways to use the Korg Nano series midi controllers live!

Next, I’ll be exploring possibilites of the Akai MPD 24 midi pad controller in the latest Episode of Geeky Gigs scheduled for this Sunday! I try to keep them entertaining and fun to watch, and new episodes come out just about every other Sunday.

What USB audio interface do you use to record your drums?

A lot of people have been asking me what audio interface I was using in my “Nintendo 3DS and a Drummer” videos. Well, here it is. It’s an Alesis IO4. I love it. It has 4 XLR ins all with phantom power. Sounds great, and is reliable. On a side note, you can use it as a standalone 4 channel mixer without a computer. Also, these things are very inexpensive.

Nintendo will now pay you to make videos of their products!


nintendo will pay you to promote them

Something I’ve been talking with my friends a lot lately is how many large companies ignore the fact that it is all the creative people out there that are making their products so valuable. Nintendo has recognized this and is now even offering to allow Youtubers to use their copyrighted content to make videos and then even pay you 60 to 70 percent of the advertising revenue generated from the videos!

This is just an amazing idea in my opinion since now people can use so much of Nintendo’s great catalog of games, music, characters, etc… in their videos, which will help the creator get noticed, and help Nintendo for no doubt what is to be insane amounts of exposure by the huge gaming/musicmaking/top 10 listers community on Youtube. It really does seem like a win-win deal.

Nintendo is giving two options for sign-ups. You can sign you’re whole youtube channel over to them for 70% cut of the ad royalties, or on a ‘per-video’ basis for a 60% cut. Learn more here at Nintendo’s site!
