Thales Model I: Retro Computer Sound Module

I'm very excited to present my first VST/AU plugin: Thales Model I! From the manual:



"Thales Model I is a virtual plugin for Windows VST (32bit & 64bit), Mac OS X VST and AU. Thales Model I features the sound generated by early sixties computer. The sounds have been sourced in public domain films, which means that they are not clean: tape noises and background hiss are part of the sound of this very special rompler. Because of this, Thales Model I's tone is reminiscent of the mellotron."

Audio demos:



Before buying the plugin, test the 4 tones demo version that you can download at Archive.org to be sure Thales Model I is compatible with your setup:

You can buy Thales Model I Full Version at Sampleism for £6.99: http://www.sampleism.com/samplescience/thales?sk=av

Because Thales Model I is based on very old computer sound, the tones are simple and often sound "organ" like. Most of the sounds are looped and the full product includes all the version of the plugin (Windows and Mac files, 32bit and 64bit VST plugins and AU) as well as a manual.

Note that Thales Model I has been developed with Maize Sampler and tested on Windows 8 and Mac OS X using FL Studio and Reaper.

Analog Age sound module teaser


Analog Age is a virtual sound module that features the tones of various vintage synthesizers. It's build with Maize Sampler and it was meant to be a submission to the 2014 KVR Challenge. Unfortunately, Maize Sampler's bugs prevented me of doing that and I now have to rebuild it in Kontakt 5. I'll probably have the time to work on it next year, during the summer. Until then, I hope you like the GUI. With Kontakt capabilities I'll be able to ad better controls and more features to shape the sounds. It will be a lot of fun! Stay tuned!

New sample distributor and new music

First of all, I can't believe that I'm still updating this blog! Music is something I try to get out of me and it seems to always come back stronger no matter what I do. So there's this new sample distributor called SamplePilot and I have my own little store there. I also have a new tune on soundcloud, it won't be there eternally, so have a listen before I decide to remove to make room for newer stuff!

Cosmos: War Of The Planets Soundtrack

I've rearranged and remastered an old science fiction movie soundtrack from the public domain called Cosmos: War Of the Planets. I wanted to do this for a long time since the soundtrack is really good and isn't available anywhere. The track I'm the most proud of is called "Outer Space Panic". It has a sound reminiscent of Dj Shadow famous "Organ Donor" track. Obviously, it's more simple because I wanted to let the original music stand out for itself. New arrangement where minimal while still retaining that '70 style and tone.

I've made a small run of 20 red cassettes and it's also available as a digital download. The tapes will probably sold out very quickly so if you like the project and want to show your support, you know what to do!  :wink:

It's also available on Discogs, if your more comfortable with that website:

Cheers!
