Well it’s been a bit since I’ve posted anything new so here you go. This track was written in about two days. I’m really not sure what style to call it, but hey what the heck. I’m calling it ‘Control’ based on what I feel when I listen to it. Anyways, have a listen and let me know what you think.

Another day another tune. Here you go, a remix of my Polydome tune. The dreams remix of this tune contains a different beat line, different bassline as well as additional melody synths to add fullness to it.

You will also notice that this track is more in the drum and bass style and is faster. This allows you to rock it in a moderm dnb mix =)

Anyways, here you go: Faber – Polydome (Dreams Remix)

New Site launched

Hi Folks,

I’ve become generally tired of the old site and design. I’m pretty much fed up with Joomla junk at this point and have decided that wordpress makes for a better solution to my needs. As you can see I’ve re-organized much of the site, however all of the music and features seen on the old site will soon be made available here.

Hello Everyone,

Here is my latest work. I put this together a few nights ago. All told this tune represents about 8 hours worth of work. The samples you hear are from the epic movie Dark City – one of my personal favorites.

The general feeling behind this tune was to generate something in the pure techno style of the mid 90’s. It uses only 4 virtual instraments — yet many drum tracks to really give it some life. Anyways, I hope you enjoy it, and remember – Play it loud!

A breaks style electronica track set at 145 BPM

Music Box is the first really ‘polished’ track I’ve done. It’s got a breakbeat bass line and style to it, but is more electronica styled around great works by Aphex Twin’s works.

This track was produced on Cubase SX3. It utilize Chameleon5000, impOSCar, FM8, and Guru VSTi’s.

Generally speaking, I would say that this track took me about 16 hours of work over a week. Anyways, I hope you enjoy it:

Eclipse – Another modern Drum and Bass styled track

Well here you go folks, Another drum and bass styled track. This tune is done more in the Liquid Drum and Bass style. The beats, bass lines, and synth’s are all unique to this track. The vocal samples you hear are from the movie 1408.

 

This tune uses 14 different tracks, 5 tracks for the drums and the bass line, 7 tracks worth of synth’s and 2 tracks of audio samples.

As a side note – I’ve shelved the audio on this as well just this time I took it down from about 80Hz rather than my standard 100Hz cut.

I produced this tune in about 4 days, with about 20 hours of work total in it. This tune was produced on Cubase using the following VSTi’s

  • Guru
  • SimSynth
  • imposCAR
  • FM8
  • Vanguard

Additionally TC Native Works Reverb filter, the stock Cubase ModDelay filter and others were used to polish things up.

I hope you enjoy this one, I sure do and as always, please leave feed back!

Rubberband

Topic: Music| No Comments »

Hi everyone,

Here is the latest piece of work I’m releasing to the world. This is a drum and bass track called Rubberband. I hope you enjoy!

This is an 18 channel drum and bass styled track. It’s modeled after some of the stuff I like that Klute and produced. I also barrowed some ideas from various other well known producers. This is the first track I’ve done which has a reasonably complex drum line, and I’ve been told by people who have heard this that it’s got a lot more depth to it vs some of the others I’ve put together.

Anywho, I hope you enjoy:

I’ve also remixed this tune and included some cool vocal samples

Hi Folks,

I thought some of you might be interested in what kind of production equipment I’m using currently.

Generally for natural effects I use equipment down in our Mix Studio. However when producing or remixing, or even sometimes remastering various bits of audio and video I use the production studio. This is a small bedroom that has been retro-fitted for this task.

 

Production Studio Room

 

So from left to right, what you see here:

 Event ASP8 Studio reference monitor

Event ASP8

 

Oxygen8 keyboard connected via MIDI not USB (USB sucks ass on these things)

M-Audio Oxygen8

 

BCF2000 motorized midi controller mixer interface

BCF2000 Mixer

 

2 Sceptre 20.1" Wide screen LCD panels Both monitors are attached to an Ergotron LX dual monitor arm mount (Very nice) Various USB accessories (mostly external disks) The DAW…  

The DAW is an Intel based Microsoft Windows PC with 4GB of DDR2 800 RAM, Intel Q6600 (G0, OC’d to 3.2GHz on Air cooling), 80GB SATA disk, M-Audio Delta 2496 Audiophile card, and an  Nvidia 9600GT video card.

I run Cubase SX with various free and commercial virtual instruments(VSTi).

This is all connected to an APC UPS. The reason behind the UPS was not so much to keep the system up in the even of a power failure (which is nice) but more to filter the line noise generated by the PC from the audio amp that drive the speakers (This can be a big problem).

With this rig I’ve been able to produce many of the tunes on this site. If you’ve got any more questions please comment.
