Astral - Dedicated Few

Just blogging myself a bit recently, been working on a tune and its a rare occasion that I get a semi decent composition with a good (ish) mix down. Enjoy the tune, we'll be happy to hand out 320's on request but I'm not making this one instantly downloadable as I feel it may have some potential.

Tunes available here.

Thanks again

And stay tuned, more Ableton Live tutorials are in progress.

Native Instruments Reaktor, Old Memories.

I was looking through some of my old files and came across this.

This was my first subtractive synthesizer I've ever created, It was for a university project and it reminded my how much I learnt and understood through constructing my own synths.

Give it a go, the demo for 5.5 should be available shortly from here, the knowledge you can learn from this kind of process is invaluable, you start to understand in commercial synthesizers what you can do to produce the sounds you have in your head.
