Noiseless PC Audio

The first experience I had listening high fidelity music involved a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy and a 5.1 Creative speaker setup, this was back in 2003. At the time, I just plug analog outputs to the appropriate speakers, there was no noise or distortion distinguishable from the speakers. It’s a different story today, analog outputs are noisy and your speakers will bleed the electrical noise into sonic waves. A while ago I wrote about Airplay for listening but after a while I wasn’t enjoying the sync delay every time I play any video file. [Read More]

Roon, Favorite Features

Roon, Favorite Features
After installing Roon for the first time I’ve been using it everyday. How I use Roon has changed along the way. A mixer was directly plugged into my Hackintosh but now it’s plugged to a Raspberry Pi. I can now listen to music even though my Hackintosh is not powered. Discover This feature alone I think is worth half of the subscription price. Roon with its awesome metadata power will recommend you songs, albums, artists and my favorite is artists you don’t even know you had in your library. [Read More]

Unraid Case/Motherboard Upgrade And Some More

Unraid Case/Motherboard Upgrade And Some More
Just can’t saya this enough; UNRAID IS GREAT! Ever since I assembled my Unraid box and got it licensed, I have now used up more than 50% of my storage space. It’s time to upgrade to prepare adding more storage when it gets to 80%. With this rate though, I think I’m gonna have to seriously consider moving from SSD to mechanical drives. The final spec for the upgrade is below: [Read More]

This, The Reason Of Songwriting

This, The Reason Of Songwriting
The second post of reliving the songs I’ve written or cowritten, first post here. The most powerful song both me and Ina has ever written, ever! I still remember all of the hours we spent writing, recording and arguing about this song. More about this below. Ina and I are cousins from my dad’s side. One day after the third song I wrote, I met her at my grandma’s house. I played the song and right there and then we began spending more and more time collaborating. [Read More]

Love and Music

Love and Music
This is now the hardest time in life when I don’t have music as my release. Tragedies, traumas, infatuations and all the way to love have been lived with music I’ve written, now there’s nothing. It’s been like this for 10 years which feels like an eternity. Seeing myself froze when my fingers are touching guitar strings or piano bars frightens me. Especially in an entrepreneurial way of life in the tech startup industry. [Read More]

Community Audio – Music – Part 3

Here I go again blogging about my own music. It’s been quite a while since I listen to any of the songs I wrote. The statistics at The Internet Archive - Community Audio is a welcomed surprise. This is also a premier blog post using Bit.ly Pro’s custom domain. So 1 day after 65 years of Indonesia, I’m in a old and new mood :) Starting off the list is a song I wrote when I was able to partly let go of someone but yeah, still wishing for something.

Community Audio - Music - Part 2

On to the next part of Community Audio a.k.a my own music hosted at The Internet Archive. Most of the song I wrote are hosted over there while still there are other hosted at Myspace and iLike. Looking at the statistics, The Internet Archive is a clear winner, offering access to larger crowds. One of my favorite song is “My Good Friend”. I remembered when writing this song, I was just fooling around with my guitar and my cousin Ina came from out of nowhere and she just started to sing along. [Read More]

Community Audio - Music - Part 1

It’s been more than 5 years since I uploaded my first Creative Commons Licensed music now referred as Community Audio at archive.org. Bottom-line, looking at the statistics, I was in smiles :) The Internet Archive is more accessible to the mass it reads. There’s this song that I feel is in tune with #StartupLokal hehehe. When I wrote the song, I was on a transitional phase. The song is titled “Ain’t Sorry” and it was sung by my cousin Ina. [Read More]
