This is the the title track and first song off my album “Return Home” I’ve made a special version with live drums for youtube, and possibly to be released later on within an album.

Here’s a new track I made using Ableton Live. Synths used were my Mothman VST series which you can download using the link in the header, as well as Ableton’s drum rack and Simpler. Footage for the video were taken from The Howling, and a VHS NASA documentary about Mercury. Thanks for watching. New album coming soon!
I wrote my mothman plugins some time ago, so they are 32 bit only. However they work fine using jbridge, a 32/64 bit VST bridge which you can get here https://jstuff.wordpress.com/jbridge/. I use the jbridge on both mac and pc and it works great and is not that expensive.
The song MIDIPLUS was created using Rosegarden and Qsynth with my custom made Kawai K1 soundfont and the Hexter DX7 emulator for Linux. I sequenced the track music all in Rosegarden, then used the Jack sync feature to sync to Mixbus and recorded the drums. I then outputted the audio from Qsynth into Mixbus and mixed it all there. Unfortunately I only had 4 channels for drums to work with this time and since all 5 toms were bussed to a single channel they came out sounding a bit thin. Oh well, still had fun and think it came out decent. The song is in 7/4 and I wanted to do an odd time song with double kick, so this is the result!

I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve gotten for this over the years. The band I played drums in in the 1990s, Lincoln still gets fan mail to this day, and yesterday I got an email from Tomas in the Czech Republic who runs a YouTube channel called emotivehardcore.com asking if he could do a video of all the available Lincoln material out there.
Since we’ve basically been sitting on our hands as far as doing an official release (still may be coming one day) I thought it’d be cool for the fans to have this in the mean time, and agreed to let Tomas post it on his channel.
He does a great job with these videos and makes them sorta interactive where you can click inside the vids to hear the different material. Check it out.
You should also check out Tomas’ band they have a double LP out on vinyl.
Here’s a pretty 90s sounding ambient song that I could see in an old top down RPG in some exotic land. I composed the track in Rosegarden and used the Qsynth/Fluidsynth soundfont player for sounds. The soundfont is of a Kawai K1 Synthesizer. Dedicated to Fornax Void.
