Painters paint pictures on canvas. But musicians paint pictures on silence.

Development continues with the site. I have found an accessible WeatherStar 4000 web simulator that is strangely enough, accessible. I'm also going to be uploading a full package of the WeatherStar 4000 3.1 installer from Taiganet which is the central development hub for development of weather information platform simulators used by the Weather Channel. While the full installed simulator isn't currently accessible, I am considering contacting the developer over there who is currently porting the entire WS4000 project to c++ to make is cross platform and see if he is able to include some level of virtual buffer for each segment screen.
I'd also like to tell everyone that Bill Rowell past away Friday evening, May 12. As I have mentioned before, he had stage 4 cancer and it took him very quickly.
We have some new additions to the site as well! Jim Snowbarger, the creater of the Snowman radio broadcast has kindly agreed to let me host all 81 episodes of the SRB show produced from mid 1999 to mid 2001. Please check him out at The Snowman Radio. The Snowman is streaming live again on Mushroom FM. He's got a pile of JAWS scripts you might want to sort through, including scripts for Reaper and probably the most godly of them, Hotspot Clicker.


Hurst Audio Productions is run by Cody Hurst, a blind musician and audio recorder in western Oregon.
Mixing and producing audio has been a hobby of mine since 2008. I have been involved with many different projects from podcasts, radio bumpers to music. Since the age of six I picked up playing the drums and began playing guitar when I was twelve. Toward the end of high school I recorded several song ideas which were mostly quick jams. You can hear them on the demos page. For Weatherscan fans, I have a dedicated page just for you. You can download a four disk set of the Weatherscan sound track and Alan Jackson voice files. Please note that the local forecast music by Trammell Starks is not being offered through this website any longer. I thank you for stopping by...but first, if you don't know where to begin, then why not start out by reading my bio.

How do you record your music?

As a blind musician, access to digital audio workstation software under Windows is very slim. By far the most usable and cost effective solution that I use is Reaper 5.X digital audio workstation software, and the free and open source screen reader NVDA. In order for Reaper to be fully accessible, one must install the Osara plug-in as well as the SWS extention. If you are interested in how to use NVDA with Superior Drummer, first read my page on Setting up your EDrums with Superior Drummer. When you are done, continue on to read about accessing Superior Drummer with NVDA with the vMouse and vTurbo addons
