Xfer Serum vs the Virus TI – Supersaw Preset and Comparison

Xfer's Serum has been blowing my mind, and to test its abilities, I put it up against the venerable Virus TI hardware synthesizer. The results? Nothing but gold. Truly, a remarkable software synthesizer that can keep up with the old king - and quite possibly exceed it. Like the sound? I have the Virus TI supersaw preset for Serum out for free! Enjoy!...

Review: "Dance Music Manual, 3rd Edition: Tools, Toys, and Techniques" by Rick Sno

“Dance Music Manual, 3rd Edition: Tools, Toys, and Techniques” by Rick Sno [Review]

If you’re new to producing electronic dance music, Rick Sno’s Dance Music Manual [Amazon.com] is a worthwhile (though highly repetitive) guide to getting started fast. For veteran producers, the book covers the gamut and in much detail; while you won’t take away as much as the novices, you’ll likely leave with a few new gems and information gaps filled. The Dance Music Manual is an in-depth, top-to-bottom look at dance music - including music...

“Reminisce (Tourism50)” for the Singapore Tourism Board [Soundtrack]

Growing up, I spent many wonderful summers in Singapore at my Grandmother's. Sadly, swept up by the country's growth, the house is now gone, but the fondest of memories remain, and they forever cement Singapore as my second home. Yesterday, the Singapore Tourism Board released a retrospective on its country, a video to celebrate the 50th anniversary of tourism development in Singapore - and I got to score the music. I'm ENORMOUSLY proud...

Time EP [Original]

Born from the fiftytwocreatives project, "Time" is a soundtrack EP I put together to practice time signatures. To round it out as an EP (because in stores, anything shorter than 4 tracks is a single), I included an old fan favourite, "Carry On". The image? Tokyo at night, by yours truly. For a better experience, watch it animate on YouTube. Enjoy this? Grab a copy on Bandcamp, or swing by my soundtrack set on Soundcloud for...

“Hearts” feat Bon Iver, Childish Gambino, Jeremy Lim, and Serena Sun by Isosine [Placement]

I'm just going to gush:  I am a giant Isosine fan. When I found him, music came to a halt because I didn't want to turn "Claritycraft" off.  I swear he went through my collection, saw that I was really digging Pendulum and Foxes that week, and meshed them together with B.o.B. to form this glorious, pumped-up drum and bass anthem. The interplay is insane. I never went running without it.  Come to think of it,...
