LiveMosCL 0.1
LiveMos is a (free) command line based MIDI routing tool for OSX, written to facilitate live performance with soft synths (specifically Reason, but it should be equally effective elsewhere). It can recieve MIDI input from multiple sources and route them to multiple virtual outputs, which it creates. A 'set' is a collection of songs, and a 'song' is a collection of zones (or 'layers' -- I tend to use the terms interchangeably). Lots of control is provided for each layer, including source input, output destination, keyboard range and transposition, and velocity range and offset. Each layer also transmits a volume setting upon the song load, which facilitates the reuse of common sound sources with custom levels for each song.

Download Mosquitos' Remix Pieces

Wow, hard to believe the third Mosquitos' record comes out next week. We spent a really long time on this one, and I know perspective was occasionally lost (mine at least)... so I'm really curious what others may do with these tracks. Which is why I'm posting remix pieces for the entire record here.

I've split the songs into two files each -- vocal tracks, and backing tracks. Most requests I get for remix pieces only want the vocal tracks, so that's easy enough. But if you wish to delve deeper, the other tracks are there too.

Please bear in mind that this is still copyrighted material -- we're inviting you to mix and mash to your heart's content, but some common sense restrictions still apply... i.e, you can't put your own record out using our tracks! But you knew that, right? Mostly, we ask that you let us hear what you come up with, assuming it's good. :)
