we're all imposters

Music Bed is one of my favorite places to go to feel inspired and to learn about creativity as a whole. They just put out this article that felt like was written directly to me.

If you're an artist or a creative of any type (I believe every human), then you can sympathize with the insecurities that come with the craft. Read this article, be encouraged, and let a weight be lifted off of your shoulders.


I recently received the amazing privilege to partner with a company called Source Audio. Source Audio makes high quality guitar effect products like reverbs, delays, distortions, and more.

I first heard about and tried a Source Audio product a couple years back - the SoundBlox 2 Dimension Reverb. For the price and footprint, I was overly impressed with the sounds it could produce. It was extremely editable - you could affect pre-delay, have presets, EQ, and more.

One of their most recent products, the Nemesis Delay, partnered with their Neuro app for iOS, is flipping the effects world upside down. I've never seen or played anything like it! You can save so many presets, attach external auxiliary switches for easy preset switching, control editables like mad in the Neuro app, and get those unbelievably whacky or classic delay sounds you're looking for.

Go sell your $500 delay unit and get this thing. You'll never look back. Check out the video below for more info on the Nemesis delay unit.

The Nemesis Delay offers 24 distinct effect engines ranging from vintage tape and analog delays to highly advanced pitch-shifting, reverse, filter modulating, and rhythmic delays. It also features 128 presets, multiple delay taps, a hold function, tap tempo, full MIDI control, deep editing functionality with the Neuro Mobile App, and much more.

I can't say enough good things about the sonic quality, build strength, and amazing artist support I have encountered so far with Source Audio. Play their products. Buy their products. I love my Source Audio Nemesis!

STEAL // Creativity

I've heard a certain group of individuals called the "creatives": painters, musicians, novelists, dancers, and more. This seems limiting; it seems exclusive.

Isn't every human creative? We were created and we are constantly creating. Whether we are editing videos, passing a ball, or nursing a child while cooking dinner, it takes creativity, ingenuity, and smarts.

This book has changed my perspective, and I guarantee it will change yours, too. If you are a creative, AKA a human being, you will benefit from this book.
