I’m truly amazed by the quality and range of free music making software available today. I’ve written an article about how you could literally set up a whole studio for no money at all. Covering free DAWs, synths, effects and more. Check it out here

Two new tracks on the download page

Ever wondered what the best cure for some seasonal overindulgence is?

Put on some pumping electronica and dance it off!

To help you out I’ve added two new tracks to the download page. Dive in, a punky driven track and Exponent, a furious bosh with lots of digital distortion. Have a listen below …

You may have noticed the download page has changed slightly, there are now only high quality downloads. So you can get these tracks in the format you want for the price you choose (even for free). Hope you enjoy

I’ve added Answer me to the download page. It’s upbeat with rock drums, reverbed arps and (shockingly for a Dataphiles track) a vaguely comprehensible vocal line. Click above to give it a listen and check back here later for its accompanying video.

I’ve used Battery for quite a while as my standard go to drum sampler. I only realised quite recently that I was only using a fraction of its power, it has amazing sound design, modulation and sampling features.

I decided to make myself a drum kit so that I could fully explore its features as well as filling in some percussion sounds I felt were missing from my collection. After a bit of experimentation, out came Genki kit. Now I have put it on  KVR for all to enjoy

All of the drums were made using raw sample material from Gen-Rate (my crazy Reaktor noisebox) and processed using Battery. The end result is a glitchy kit with a variety of different techy fx sounds.

I also uploaded Darqdelay to KVR, in case you don’t have access to the NI library.

I’ve decided to upload my Reaktor back catalogue to kvr, (invader, phazmatic, gen-rate, stepnik and binary)  so now you don’t need access to the native instruments user library to play around with Dataphiles synths.

Also, as if you needed a reason to love Reaktor I was looking on the download page for gen-rate, which already contained a pretty surreal series of posts, and someone has added this gem:

“There was a strange spaceship in my back yard. The door was open so I hopped in for a fly, a bunch of seemingly random controls crashed my through the neighbors fence before taking me to a really wet planet. I had to battle marsh blobs before jumping into hyper splodge.
Suddenly I woke up with a start realising I had gone to bed straight after a large dose of LSD and had dreamed I’d fallen into a Reaktor!!!

Thanks I love it, now I don’t have to record the bath tub :-)”

Hugo Peterson – you are officially awesome

I’ve just added two new tracks to the download page. A boshy rave track (Analyse) and a funky house number (Acoustic Meltdown).

As always you can download either a free (128 MP3) version or a paid copy in the high quality format of your choice.

Quite a while ago I wrote a track for my late (and much loved) friend Jonny Fraser. He was a real inspiration for me, and even though he’s been gone for over 3 years now I still think about him a lot.

So I’ve decided to release it, I think he would have liked that. He was a drummer and a huge lover of music, when he died it felt like the whole rhythm of life was shaken up. I know that chillout/downtempo/breakbeat isn’t my normal style but it felt right.

Its up on the internet archive for everyone to enjoy. Feel free to copy/send it as much as you like, just keep the comment about Jonny in the MP3 file.

Love and Peace

I’ve uploaded a new synth to the reaktor library. It is a subtractive synth controlled by a grid of buttons (no knobs etc). Which apart from making some weird and wonderful sounds also lets you draw little pixelated pictures on the control surface (as above). If you’re a reaktor user and you fancy having a go you can download it from the user library.

I’m going to try to find another home for my reaktor ensembles as well so that kore users and people without acess to the user library can get hold of them.

Love and Peace
