Greg Tells Alison What to Do - Composition Challenge Pt. 2
Play • 42 min

Since Alison and Greg are a formerly-married couple, they know each other's strengths and weaknesses. In this two-part series, they're using that knowledge for good, and creating challenges tailor-made to help the other person become a better musician -- and who knows, maybe a better person along the way!

This episode covers Greg's challenge to Alison: to craft a drum sound for her upcoming Blix Byrd album by testing out a few different sounds. This is opposed to her usual gut-instinct way of just going with it...what will this ultra-crafty approach yield for her music?!

In this episode, we talk about the Dave Smith Instruments Tempest drum machine, as well as the Roland 606, 707, 808, and CR78 drum machines.
