ARKSUN-SOUND MISSION STATEMENT:
To push the sonic
abilities of todays soft-synths in creating professional high quality useable sounds.
My sounds are
created whilst using the keyboard and so are geared towards performance
playing, usually making good use of the mod wheel (sometimes changing the sound completely!) and aftertouch when
I only make presets I
would be happy using myself in music production. Some sounds may be
familiar but the primary emphasis is on creating interesting sounds,
rather than attempting to copy only well known ones
Born 9th October 1976, I've always had a deep
love for sound and music. From an early age I was mesmerised by records
and music I heard in films and on TV. I used to learn how to play TV
themes by ear on the piano and my first synth, a little Yamaha keyboard
which had 8 second sampling chip on it. I loved to sample everything and
anything. As the years progressed the composing side took over, from
using my first pro keyboard, an Ensoniq ESQ1, to midi sequencing on my
Once I had switched to PC's it started getting serious and
so my path in life was chosen. With a strong taste in progressive and
trance music in 96 I set out to release trance music and so my first
release with Zone Recordings came about in 98. Since then I've been
releasing singles through several labels and under various artist names.
The sound design side of things started around the same time, first doing
work for Emu Systems (APS Soundcard, XL1, XL7, PX-7, XK-6) then getting
involved with Novation creating presets for the A-Station, Supernova II, KS series and more recently 150 sounds for the Ultranova.
The first soft-synth company I did sound design
for was Linplug and their excellent Albino and CronoX synths. Since then
I've worked for the likes of Camel Audio, Image Line and Humanoid Sound Systems.
Which brings us
to the present day where I've decided its a good time to start releasing
quality banks directly myself.
