Pete has always been interested in video film,music and recording since he was young. He has recalled remembering watching the VU meters and still does) on his parents new tape recording machine, as he talked into the microphone, and watching the cassette tape reels move round and round.(pete owns 3 reel to reel tape machines) He remembers wanting a video camera in my early years. Pete bought his first video camera in 2003.
It really started out when Pete got my first keyboard in the late 80's, it was a Realistic Concert mate Sampler(still have it). He could sample only seconds of sound, but it kept me entertained for hours. Then Pete bought a Bass Guitar in 1997(STOLEN), having no idea how to play it, and did not even have an amp.
Pete needed an amp for my bass, so he bought a used guitar amp some vintage effect pedals were included. Realizing it was a guitar amp( it was worth it for the effect pedals (still has the delay pedal), Pete eventually bought a bass amp years later. In 1998 Pete received another keyboard, it was a Casio 128 key MIDI keyboard.
Pete went to college at both Eastern Kentucky University and Vincennces University respectfully. Pete started experimenting with synthesizer programs like Rebirth,Absynth and Reason 2.0. Using Cool Edit Pro to record on and using his Casio MIDI keyboard as a midi controller.
