My Latest Acquisition: Hyperion Synth

Today, I added a new tool to my toolbox. It’s the Hyperion multilayer synth, available from Tracktion. I will probably spend the rest of my life exploiting the capabilities of this amazing VST3 synth plugin, yet in 10 minutes I was able to produce a fantastic piece of dramatic ambient background music with it. Here’s a preview version of “On Pins and Needles.”

“On Pins and Needles (Dramatic Ambient Background Music)”

The bell tones, arpeggiated plucks and some of the pad tones are all produced by Hyperion. I also used a patch from my Alchemy plugin to create some additional atmospheric soundscape. I’ve already uploaded this to Pond5 and hope to be able to share the news soon when it’s available to license.

Elysium: My New Toy

I’m excited to share some info on my latest software purchase. It’s a synth from Wide Blue Sound called Elysium. This tool uses a “two layer” concept to allow you to create complex sounds with movement and rhythm. I got inspired and created a new track that’s in curation now at Pond5. I call the track “Starting Now.”

New Release: Lights from Distant Stars

(Cover art photography by Mark Casto.)

I’m happy to announce my next release, coming out November 20, 2020. It’s an ambient track titled “Lights from Distant Stars.”

Coinciding with the single I’ll be releasing a video, and for this video I’m excited and honored to team up with a terrific amateur British astrophotographer named Mark Casto (aka Astrocasto), to feature his work alongside my music. The video will be produced in Full HD and will showcase Mark’s breathtaking photos of galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae.

I can’t wait to share the new track and video with all of you in November.
