I went back to "Simple" and reworked it into a more Ambient track.
The key differences are:
New intro/outro - The storm! (Composed using three noise based VSTis)
Rewrote the lyrics
Replaced the vocals with Vocaloid Amy
I hope you enjoy.

Updated to Draft M.
Written using Renoise.
Uses Plogues Alter Ego singing synthesizer VSTi.

Description : Ambient piece I've been mucking about with.
Possibly in the style of the Wip3out soundtrack.
Description : Delerium/Enigma inspired short piece.
Playing around with the mixer to generate a sense of space.
Might be useful as backing to a video or something.
Description : I've been told alot of my music has an 80s feeling to it. So in my recent work I've decided to fully embrace the 80s sync feel to my stuff.
Credit - to Full Bucket and Plogue for their VSTs.
-Added new section
Description : Final Version
Description : Now on Draft I - Valentines Mix
A techno/trance track - which uses a Singing Synth.
A bit more active my usual Ambient fair; I'm continuing to use the Alter Ego singing synth - this time using the Marie Ork voice pack.
The Plogue Alter Ego singing synth and it's voice packs "Bones" and "Marie Ork" are all completely free. They work as a VST instrument.
Description : First track in a while: Ambient track which uses a singing synth - namely Alter Ego's Bones
This is Draft F - trying to decide if I need to add any extra sections to generate more interest...
If you're interested in a collaboration, I can provide the audio as separate tracks if needed.
If you like this one - check out Simple Lullaby featuring Vocaloid Amy - it's a reworked version of this song.
Description : Just a track I made for a laugh
Description : This is an older track taken from the Touch Sequence (see in my track list) from September 2009. The piece reflects a lot of my clubbing days in the late 1990's...
I'm looking for some folks to remix this into something a little less dated.
If you do make something with please drop me a line.
Please leave a comment...
Description : Mellow.
One of my older tracks I forgot to upload...
If you like this then check out my other stuff!
Description : Sequel to Crazy Hazy, again uses mixing desk automations to mutate the nature of the sounds in the piece.
Description : Techno / Hardcore track. Thrown together for a laugh with some samples I downloaded a while ago.
I love the vocal intro...
Oh and the vocals are a bit rude, not normally my kind of thing, but they work here.
Description : My first track in a while.
Uses Megan O'Neill's brilliant "Hallucinations Acapella" See:
Description : This is my first song that makes use of that rare breed of instrument:
The Vocal Singing Synthesizer.
The one used in this track is the brilliant AquesTone from AQuest Corp, which comes complete with VSTi plugin.
Konnichiwa (Japanese): meaning "Good afternoon"
Description : This is possibly the most over the top thing I have ever done...
Version X2 (this is about the 24th variant). This was written in 2009 after a 5 year absence from song writing, and quite frankly I went nuts.
The Touch Sequence contains about 92+ instruments and lasts 15 minutes and 27 seconds. I started writing and simply didn't stop. I kept on adding ideas and poured 5 years worth of mojo into a single piece.
At the same time I was learning my way around Renoise which is the music program is use.
It's not perfect, but it's riddled with ideas, so if you want to take a bit and use it; please do.
Please drop me a line if you do and let me know what you've done with this complete and total brain dump.
Influences - pieces from my 1997 work (there's a couple of remixes of my older work in here), plus Ken Ishii, Faithless, Robert Miles, Moby, Enigma, Delerium, Yes, etc..
P.S. the intro of this track is used in my mate's trails riding DVD.
P.P.S. I had to drop the mp3 encoding rate to something quite low to fit the whole thing it. Smaller parts are available if you want them; if there's a particular section you're interested in, I'll reload them in higher quality at your request.
Description : After my last two tracks that I've uploaded, I thought it was time to show case something a little more chilled.
The concept of this track is a post-clubbing wind down piece - think about 3:00am in the morning on a warm summer's night.
The track has been marked as containing adult content; however there is no swearing or bad language in the piece. Let's just say there's an implied activity that suggests one did not return home alone ;)
Influences for this track; include beer, smokes and the late night ferry home from the Hard in Portsmouth to Gosport Ferry Terminal - that only drunk people going home to Gosport will know about.
Edit: Upon reflection this track probably should last at least 15 minutes...
Description : This was my most popular track on Soundcloud.
I chose this to be loaded as my second entry simply because it takes a little while to get going, but when it does - gotta love the filters with automations!
At the time of writing this track, I was listening to a lot of Prodigy and ambient techno.
A lot of time went into the structure of this piece, with the whole thing being nearly written backwards. Elements are introduced a section at a time, until most of the parts come together in the final stages.
Uses Vocals from Break Beats Paradise.
P.S. Comments please! Especially if you have any suggestions on modifying the track - mix, instruments, sequence of parts, etc.
Description : Reviewed by DJ Ben Glover - who said it had "an 80's" feel to it. Anyone agree with him?
Featuring vocals by Jennifer A White (my girlfriend).
This one going back into the pipeline for a major rework...
