Summamutikka – Taii Kayka remastered!

Over the years the most requested thing have been better sounding versions of the Summamutikka tracks, since the original “mastering” that I did was pretty bad. So here is just that, enjoy!

A Home In The Stars EP

I’ve been quite busy with my thesis and the Complete Discography project for the last two years, so there hasn’t been much time for new music. But I’ve been finishing off old things, so I can make space for something more novel. Here’s two tracks that I started two years ago, along with some remixes I’ve made of my older music:

Rest assured, I have a lot of new ideas cooking, time will tell when I have something finished to show. I hope to have at least a two track EP out from my new project by the end of the year, but we’ll see.

The Complete Discography project was a great success, thank you to everybody who contributed. Creating the stems for my old tracks was a much more daunting process than I initially expected. I must have spent somewhere near 200 hours on that one, but I’m really happy we did it together! Having those stems is a good thing for me, because now I can remaster some of my old tracks that, to be honest, don’t sound that good because at that time I didn’t have a very clear idea about mastering music.

Aavepyörä – Complete Works USB

The complete discography with all of Aavepyörä´s music is now finally available in lossless FLAC format. Available also in a deluxe version with separated stems for several songs, and with a poster featuring the artwork of the last album. Also included is over 2,5 hours of unreleased and new tunes. As a special content, I decided to put out also the very first Aavepyörä album, previously only released in a limited CDr format, and which was never available from the website.

Back the project at Indiegogo!

So, it´s going to be a hot dancefloor again in Israel this spring:

Other news? Well, a few parties that are yet to be officially announced, but this one in Finland for example will be great I think:

Other than that, no new music or much else. I´ve been busy moving my house and studio (again!), I´m writing my master´s thesis, and so on… But I have a ton of ideas, I hope to get back to music as soon as possible, maybe next winter or so.

Aavepyörä audio crafting #1, intelligent drum replacement

For some time I have been thinking about starting to write a series of inspirational journal entries about creative sound design. I assume that you are familiar with all functions of your DAW, as well as other basic sound processing methods. Sometimes you might need also special hardware.

I am mostly working in Linux using the KXStudio distribution and Bitwig, but the principles and mostly software too will be identical to any other OS.

First up: intelligent drum replacement by hand. Continue reading
