Well, it seems every time I post on here it is to explain why it has been so long since my last post. As I head back to work (teaching Sound Production at Glasgow Clyde College) I reflect on a very productive summer full of recording, refurbishing, upgrading and releases!
Axis Sounds got a facelift with massive investment in a whole new recording system the HQ was given a whole new look.
To test out the new system (MacBook Pro, Protools 11, Ableton 9) I decided to release a record of my own. It gave me the opportunity to try out the new software suites I had purchased (Komplete 9, ReFX Nexus 2.0, Waves and Chris Lord Alge collections) as well as rig up the Command-8 to get some out-the-box mixing on the go.
The EP is available to purchase here:
It is also available in iTunes here and is a little cheaper. However, the downloads on Bandcamp are high quality audio which is the best way to experience these tracks. Listen to one of the tracks ‘Islands’:
The debut album from Suspire has been mastered, pressed and primed for digital release on September 5th, 2 days after our launch night in Glasgow’s Hard Rock Cafe. It has been a monumental DIY effort from everyone involved with the band; Clare, Paul, Chris and myself as well as our manager and PR guru Liam Young look forward to releasing it to the world. It features 10 songs and here’s the latest single:
Buy it here.
As always, here at Axis Sounds we have been working hard with Dee “Dee” Miller and I am excited to vaguely tell you that there is going to be a big push with loads of songs, vids and online media coming your way very soon. That’s as much as I can tell you but since we have been collaborating her songs have really came to life. Watch this space folks.
