My friends over at Pro Sound Effects have just released an insane BBC sound effects library. Imagine the BBC doing show after show, year after year in a ton of different locations and covering millions of topics.

When I started using SoundHack, I saw one could add an .aiff header to a non-sound file thus turning any piece of digital information into a sound file. So I tried once, got very excited and proceeded to quickly forgetting about it. In the Cycling ’74 forum someone posted a question about just that and […]

Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a long time. I’ve been very busy and internet is a definite luxury here in South Africa. I recently was interviewed by sounDesign, a great Italian sound design blog run by Sara and Gianpaolo. Thanks for the opportunity, guys! From what I understand, they are starting an English version […]

My beloved girlfriend went back to the States for the time being, but I have my computer so I’m OK… I had an opportunity lined up then it fell through, but I have my computer so I’m OK… I almost got scammed selling something expensive on Ebay, but I have my computer so I’m OK… […]

The irony of this social sound design quest is that I have become as unsocial as it gets. I have been spending a lot of time sitting in front of the computer by myself working on a new piece of software that is almost completed. This software is called Sound Doodle. It is somewhat along […]

Two of my friends, Mike Greer and Yann Seznec (The Amazing Rolo), just finished their awesome iPhone app Mujik. It’s very fun, sounds really good and looks great too! For a short period of time you can download it for free. You can get it from here. Explore sounds in a new and fun way […]
