I just thought I'd let everyone know I've grabbed a few new domain names now that the .audio TLD has been released and have started up a new website specifically for the music I write and record with analog, digital and VSTi synthesizers.

There's free album downloads, song production descriptions, a few links to the REAPER forum and a topic on the REAPER tape flanger chain I posted here recently.

Update - The first DIY article has been written and added. This article is about repairing a Roland Juno 106 with crackling voice chips (a VERY common fault with the Juno 106). The article can be read starting here...
Synthesizers.audio - Roland Juno 106 VCF/VCA 80017A chip repair, complete article. (http://synthesizers.audio/roland-juno-106-80017a-filter-chip-repair-1/)

I will be expanding the scope of the new site soon with discussions on surround sound production, techniques and downloads of some of the discreet surround mixes of my new tracks.

The new website is called Synthesizers.audio (http://synthesizers.audio)

I've also registered quadraphonic.audio (http://quadraphonic.audio), multichannel.audio (http://multichannel.audio) and analogsynth.audio (http://analogsynth.audio). For the time being, they all point to synthesizers.audio but I will be directing them to specific sections of the site once I add those sections.

Check it out and let me know what you all think. :)

David,

Nice site.

I listened to Jerusalem. Even though its fairly long, it kept my interest. I particarly like the variety of synth voices and fx used and thought the mixing and mastering was excellent.

Highly imaginative and creative. Nice and "analogy".

Will catch some other tracks when time permits.

Cheers.

Part one of the first DIY article has been written and added to my new site. This article is about repairing a Roland Juno 106 with crackling voice chips (a VERY common fault with the Juno 106).
I will have part two up in a day or so.

UPDATE - The complete article is now online. Check the next post for the link.

Well, it took me a little longer than a day or two to get this article finished. In between writing the first part and the rest, I had an unforeseen family matter to attend to interstate (my grandmother died) so I've only just had the chance to finish my own Juno 106 repair and post the completed article.

It is now done though and all three parts can be read starting here...

Love the music Dave - especially 'The Father's Heart' - fabulous!
Thanks very much.

Thanks heaps Keys. Glad you enjoy the tracks.
The Father's Heart was done pretty much entirely with Kontakt 5 and the factory orchestral sounds. I'm finding it particularly good for creating realistic orchestral arrangements.
The first instrument I learned was trumpet and I've played brass in numerous concert and jazz bands over the years. Part of my music studies and examinations (AMEB) involved writing and arranging classical pieces for orchestras so the combination of theory and practical application has been of great benefit to me these days.
I also studied jazz on a tertiary level and that really helped to broaden my palette, so to speak.

Update - New 'Links' section added (http://synthesizers.audio/links/). I'll be updating this section when I come across websites and resources that grab my attention.

Two new updates coming up shortly.

1. A review of Technogremlin's Ragnarok VSTi synth which I am greatly enjoying.

2. A new DIY project: Technical details on modding my Yamaha MC1204 mixing console to use as an ultra high quality line level summing mixer for some of my synths.

Stay tuned. I'll post here when the updates are online.
