Nightfall in Mirkwood

Bilbo Baggins, along with Thorin Oakenshield and his band of Dwarves, ventured into Mirkwood during their quest to regain the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug. During their passage through Mirkwood, the party encountered and was captured by many Giant Spiders. This sound captures that passage through Mirkwood, and a tribute to the Hobbit, one of the greatest fantasy adventures of all time …Nightfall in Mirkwood. Moving the Mod Wheel up creates the “Mirkwood Atmosphere”, from chattering giant spiders and creatures of the dark, to a mystic wind flowing through the tree’s

Antarctic Artifact

The crisp sheen of a cold day in Antarctica. Including cold Antarctic Winds. Inspired by the theories Kevin Curette shared with me …what it sounds like the day we find an Ancient Alien Artifact in Antarctica :)

Thanksgiving Day Sounds

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. I was fortunate enough to spend the day with my Lady, my Daughter, two Sons, 4 Furry Children, (My Dog’s), and the best part, my beautiful Grandchild Jane. I also made two sounds using Lunaris. A bit different than what I have created before. Same rhythm and filter  types, with two completely different meanings. The first pays homage to the “old ones” …H.P. Lovecraft’s awesome God we all know as “Cthulhu”. The sound:  “The Call of Cthulhu“. It uses 4 oscillators,  with various LFO and Arpeggiated rhythms that control a 2-pole filter type, and as always, heavy use of the Mod Wheel for total control over the timbre, with Distortion:

      The_Call_of_Cthulhu

The second sound is a tribute to one of the greatest scientific minds we have had the honor of learning from, and his greatest contribution  that led to Special relativity …Albert Einstein’s famous formula: “E=mc2“. Also using a specially calculated rhythm and filter beats using LFO as well as 4 oscillators, with heavy use of the Mod Wheel:

      E=mc2

E = mc2

I sincerely hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day, and always remember to be grateful for everything in your lives…

I just created a sound using Lunaris I can’t stop playing. It takes me into a world of Fantasy, with Sylvan Elves, and Mystic Forests. Sylvan Glen…

Rhythmic Lunaris Pads

I created a sound using Lunaris yesterday to compliment the sound I made last month titled: 4 Billion Years Ago, which is a deep rhythmic pad that leads into a lava filled planet drone. So today I thought, what about 4 Billion Years into the Future? This is a sound that uses 4 oscillators. 2 as pads, and 2 as a never before done filter rhythms with opposite arpeggiated amounts and separate unique tempos, along with low pass filter settings and Flux Motion, just at the perfect amount in total control of the filter fluctuation. Using only 3 fingers to play, and the Mod Wheel, I think we have something Epic here…

So I decided to create a Multi, and combine both of the rhythmic pads I programmed using Lunaris: 4 Billion Years into the Future and 4 Billion Years Ago, and to my amazement 4 separate arpeggiations using 4 different tempos triggered perfectly note after note, and pushing the Mod Wheel up, the Pad and Drone combination matched perfectly as well. Now that is Epic! Listen to the result of future and past combined …The Saga of 4 Billion Years:
