Hello Midibox Forum!

I know it didn't go to well the last time i was here and i want to apologise

for that. Without this forum and the members residing in it i wouldn't have been

able to get this far. So i wanted to make up for it in some way, and this is what

i did and constantly keep on doing.

Everytime people ask about my DIY gear i make shure i mention

the MidiBox forum and Ucapps, and there is also proof of this. :D

I mention it on Youtube, Myspace and now also on my newly started blog.

I hope this can mend some of the stuff i said and did in the past.

I really enjoyed being here and i hate to know that people resent me

because of my previous childish behaviour.

I have been away for a long time now and i wanted to tell you what I have been up to

all this time. Iv'e mostly been busy producing music and working with my crew.

I have however built a few new things but no Midibox related stuff, just basic

analog stuff (not as easy for me to find new ways to brake).

Iv'e updated my MySpace quite a bit, gotten some sponsors to work with me etc.

Iv'e also reworked my studio, put up two videos on youtube where im using the

Midibox Dubmasta and other DIY gear to dub tracks among other things.

In one of the videos my Hamond Spring reverb tank can be seen and heard.

Yesterday my new Roots and Dub album "Foona's In'I Sound" was released finally!

This is what i have prepared for all this time. Though im gonna have to dissapoint Stryd_one.

There are no cowbells in my album, but i promise to include some in the next one! ;)

The site is in Swedish language but look for a brown button

att the bottom of the "Foona's In'I Sound" post. The text on the button says

"Ladda Hem Albumet". To grab a copy of your own just go to:

Foona's Album and Artist presentation @ Rebelmusic.se

"The page might take a little while to load."

I found out quite recently that i allready existed on Last.Fm so

i created a manager account so i can manage that too now.

Well thats a little bit of what iv'e been doing so far.

Again, BIG UP to all members that where there for my during

my Dubmasta build. Your support will never be forgotten!

The Dubmasta was one of the corner stones of what iv'e done lately,

and we did it together. And that is what i feel this forum is all about!

THANK YOU MIDIBOX FORUM!!!

He lives! :D hahahha

Mate I think I can safely speak for most people around here when I say there is no resentment held towards you. Perhaps a little disappointment that your box never reached it's full potential, but nothing to be sorry for :)

Anyways all that crap aside it's good to see you putting the MB to good use :) Thanks for keeping us posted!

Stryd_one: Lets face it, i just couldn't stay away. Iv'e been lying restless many nights thinking about it.

Im glad im welcomme back into the mix! Thank you!

You can see a post about the Hammond spring tank i built on my Studio5 blog,

and i'll be putting up a blog about a Dual Rebote 2.5 delay unit i build.

More things to follow after that i promise.

Cimo: life in Sweden is really nice now. Today snow started falling again, and i dooo loooove the snow!

If there is enough snow i'll put up some pics of this cowboy building a snowman. ;)

Things are really starting to look up over here.

Im trying to make a new video to put up on youtube and right now my D.A.W is acting up.

Im not too good with this "patience" thingy haha. But i learned a great deal about that

during the Dubmasta build. :)

Hopefully it will all go well in the end!

Good to have you back. No resentment at all.

You had a few bad days, it should have just stayed as a few bad days and i'm sure there's more than a few of us thatwere sorry to see you disappear when things could have been sorted out easily enough.

Back on board now so lets put that all behind us!

foona, we have never spoken on  the forums or in chat, but i had a listen to your tracks and i really enjoyed them.

i used to live in st pauls in bristol right in the heart of the jamaican community and listened to reggae every day, i had no choice when the guy next door had the loudest system in the city! i still listen to some old favourites like cofi , cutty ranks, Ce'Cile and a few others.

looking over some old posts its good to see you finished you projects and seeing them used in the videos.

im just finishing my fist batch of projects now and the help i have had rom the guys here has been worth its weight in gold!!

its nice to have an accomplished midiboxer and artist back here again.

and remember!!  no one cyaan test fe dat is fe mi bredda  ( i speak fluent patois!)

Yes, it is a spring reverb! :)

I purchased the spring tank from America using Ebay.

And then i build the preamp and mixer and put it all in

a wooden box with aluminum panels. Check out my blog

post about this unit if you wish.
