SOUNDWARE: New Payhip Web Store for Commercial Soundware Products.


Most of my soundware projects and packs are available free of charge. They are all awesome, but there are a few extra awesome ones which I make a small charge for. These commercial soundware packs for both software and hardware instruments are now available for just a few pounds from my dedicated Payhip sales channel/store. 

The process of purchasing and downloading these products is completely automated, so you don't need to contact me or send any emails, etc......well not unless you really want to. 

All the products have demo videos/tracks embedded into each product listing. 

I'm currently transferring existing commercial soundware sets here, and there are plenty more on the way. As we everything I do, you can get all the updates via my Facebook Page

Check it out via the link below.......

GHOST MACHINE: Free Alesis HR16 Samples, Resamples, and Kits.


Continuing the series of vintage drum machine samples, here's the Alesis HR16. 

Hitting the market in 1988, Alesis' first drum machine instrument came as a bolt out of the blue to offer 16 bit samples and touch sensitive pads at an affordable price, all housed in what legend has it was an off the shelf telephone equipment enclosure.

Alesis HR16 users included Arrested Development, OMD and apparently Prince had one, but I think he owned almost every drum machine ever built at some point.

So here you'll find all the HR16 sounds, alongside a set of souped up resamples and the HR16 Eighties Ambient Kit for Ritmix. As ever, the HR16 resamples are EQd, Squashed, repitches, and re-shaped versions of the original samples and I think these sound great and are well worth checking out.

Free Alesis HR16 Sounds. Download Link.

Use the link below to download your free soundware pack. Just download the whole folder and use the browser on your chosen instrument to load your chosen sounds.

Follow me at my Facebook Page for more free vintage drum machine samples, and updates all my soundware packs which include sample libraries, synth patches and virtual instruments.

Instrumental/electronic/piano version of Bruce Springsteen's epic Tunnel Of Love

Synth bass arpeggio patch from ANIMAtronic Volume 1 for Steinberg's ANIMA wavetable synth, various synth pads from 'Widescreen Pads and Soundscapes', and synth arpeggios from 'Motorik City Vol 1' for DUNE CM wavetable synth (free with all copies of Computer Music magazine) and the synth solo sound is from 'Analog Solos' for THORN CM (also available with all copies of Computer Music magazine). 

Piano is from Piano Mechanics One: Prelude. 

Alongside some images from Asbury Park. 

Other than that, it's really just a song I wanted to do a version of. 

Hope you like it.
