If you’ve been using a computer for some time, it’s quite likely that you’ve heard over and over again that you should back up your data. But what does that mean exactly for the media creator? As working professionals dealing with huge amounts of data, where that data is backed up and how quickly we can expect to retrieve it can be quite a complex issue and it is essential to plan well.

In this article, I describe backup best-practices and go over case studies, based on more than a decade of experience dealing with large set of data. You can read the article here. I hope you find it interesting and I’m looking forward to your comments.

New Complog Article: "My Creative Process: Writing a Library Track" by Jerome Leroy

I recently posted on my Medium Complog an in-depth look at my process when writing Library tracks and how the album “Impressions” was created.

This is the first article in a series called “My Creative Process” in which, through real-world examples from past projects, I will try to illustrate how my music comes to life. By focusing on the various types of requirements I get from my clients, I hope I can give a holistic overview of my composition and production process, thereby answering questions I often get from students, filmmakers, and other composers alike.

You can read the article here. I hope you find it interesting and I’m looking forward to your comments.

Complog Update: Two new articles published by Jerome Leroy

I recently published two tech-related articles on my Medium complog:

  1. "A Composer’s Mobile Rig," describing my mobile rig and giving tips & tricks on how to build your own.
  2. "My Writing Gear," a non-exhaustive list of the hardware and software I use to write music, along with specific patch layouts and pictures.

I hope you enjoy reading these! Remember to let me know your thoughts and reactions in the complog's comments.
