That's right! It's the compilation you've been waiting for all year! 'Multitimbral Mondays' is finally here... I've spent three months working on this, although actually very little time working on the songs, all of which were recorded in a single evening (usually between 7pm and 8pm) using only one hardware synthesiser in multitimbral mode. You … Continue reading All the MIDI your synthetic heart can take…
I've recently completed version 1 of my game audio demo level 'DATAlabs' and got some fantastic feedback from the folks who've been playing it (let me know if you'd like to give it a try!) so I'm taking a break from it for a couple of weeks to refresh my ears before I move onto … Continue reading Grab your backpack…

Whats … Continue reading Massive Galaxy Update

In the end, I opted to control the D-20 remotely from the D5 and this worked fine, albeit … Continue reading More Monday, More MIDI.

Hi all, A quick post, but a rather overdue one! I've finally got settled in my new noise-making room so will hopefully have chance to update my blog a little more regularly (maybe). I've been working on projects with Massive Galaxy and Tri-Heart Interactive recently but have also started writing some music for a few … Continue reading Making Noise
