Thomas Lesourd's film "Cold Sweat", based on my music, has been broadcast part of some French arty TV show on TéléNantes. Nice! At 33.15 of the program.

Quick Tempest

Quick video for the upcoming NAMM show. We (the proud DSI Tempest owners) were asked to produce a short (30-60 sec) demo showing the performance capabilities of this great analog drum machine. There you go.

Papa's Got a Brand New Mic (Again)

Last time was a Bluebird and it's a great vocal mic, but this deal was just too sweet to pass on. A second-hand Neumann TLM103 for 439€.

First tests show a fuller, warmer sound, I'll post a comparative soundclip tomorrow.

Youtube Update : Last Night I Was a Ghost

Some of you have trouble with the Dailymotion streaming, so here's the Youtube upload as well. Today, back to work on finalizing the mix.

I'm planning to release this on the "Crack-Up" album.
The new DSI Tempest is drumming all along and boy does it sound great.
Otherwise, the usual suspects : plenty of Moog and Prophet 08, as well as some acoustic guitar.
