this is a superb release. I agree with ffcal above, should be on CD. On the other hand at least it is "out there" and getting attention.
Well done :)

Yeah Myspace isn't what it used to be, but I would rather use that than Faeces Book,tried it once, totally crap, but each to their own. ;D

When you open up VST HOST along the top of the screen you will see a list of menus, click on  Devices, and then Wave, you will then get a window where you can select drivers for in and out and select buffer size. :)

I have posted a couple of extracts from the soon to be released new CD MONOLITH.
You can listen here 
         or here

I hope you enjoy them :)

Hi Jesse,
I use Cubase, you do need a DAW for any serious work with VST stuff, but as a tryout you could use a reaaly nice and simple program called VST HOST which does exactly what is says, it will host a softsynth, actually quite a few, and even has a virtual keyboard built in enabling you to play the keyboard with the mouse, of course you have the option to configure it with a controller if you so wish but that would require usb to midi interface. VST HOST is free to download. You can get it here -

I actually used that programme to run the softsynths and effects for my Darkness Within album, the laptop running VST HOST was controlled by my beloved Atari 1040ST. I have now moved onto the laptop completely using Cubase to control my Hardware stuff and the Software stuff to. Sorry if I have gone a little off topic here, but I hope you find this useful. I am by no means an expert but if you need some help then you are welcome to PM me and I will try to help if I can. :)

I'd actually like to have someone teach me how to setup and record softsynth stuff. I'm at a point where I just do not have the patience or money to deal with softsynths on a trial and error from scratch basis. Plus, to be honest, aside from programs like Omnisphere and Absynth, I haven't heard anything I can't do on my hardware and with better sound. Not a knock against you softsynths folks because I do like some of the stuff I hear - for instance Between Interval is/was 100% softsynths and his stuff sounds amazing!

There are alot of really good softsynths out there for free, believe it or not, so you could try them out at no risk. H G Fortune does some excelent ones, he offers basic versions of his pro ones for free, and the pro ones aren't expensive. A couple of his I would recommend are Alien Space Weaver and Atonoise, all are available for Windows, so not sure what system you use. You can find them here -

Roll on October, the artwork for Ion is superb. Great work Pete and Kati :)

A bigger house so I can have a room that is just a studio, perferably in a few acres of countryside......

Ditto :)

I think this has been a great excersise for you to get your music to a wider audience by offering it as a free download. I think you stated earlier in the post that it had been downloaded well over a hundred times on the first day alone, how many Cds did you sell originally? Not as many as the number of downloads most probably. So it has worked, the music has been heard by a wider audience, and this will attract people to the new one. Even people who may not neccessarily like a particular style of ambient would take it because its free and there is no risk, and that might win you new fans, and I hope it does. Like you say it is about the music and getting it heard, so from that point of view I would say it has been successful for you. If you decide to release a CD in the future then hopefully more people would buy it as more people would be familiar with your music due to the free downloads :)

'Orcus' cover

Artwork by Kati Astraeir

Come on Pete, you can't just post a picture of the artwork and not tell us the release date!! We want to know when we can get our grubby little hands on it  ;D

Hi Matthew,
Downloaded Maalbeek a few days ago and have listened to it a couple of times. It really is an excellent album, it has some beautiful passages, thank you for putting it up for free download.
I look forward to the release of Koude Handen

I have heard that T-Racks 3 has been getting some good reviews.

I have found T Racks 3 to be excellent, I used various plug ins in Adobe Audition 3 for the mastering of Darkness Within and on my next one Monolith, I then got T Racks and Re mastered Monolith, it sounded so much better, I also used it on my recently posted track on the Drone Download Project.  It really is an excellent piece of software and would recommend it to anyone without hesitation. Available for Mac and PC you can download  a demo version here

Welcome Cole :)
