Out now, my first sample pack for The Cell Studio is a collection of (50) ambient, shoegaze influenced guitar-based feedback and noise meticulously prepared for use as 24bit 48kHz meta-tagged sound files ready to inspire producers, composers, sound designers, DJs, etc. Chop/slice/loop or use in any creative way, free of copyright.
Usually hiding out deep into the layers of more accessible indie, pop, shoegaze based productions, I've now spent dedicated time to creating a selection of those sounds alone, also mining the archives of years of recording electric guitars. Recorded with my Japanese Fender Strat (Fralin pickups) amongst others, at LA recording studios (Rollercoaster, The Laundry Room, Cafe Ale) with an impressive list of junk including: Strymon Blue Sky Reverb, Roland RE-301 Chorus Echo, Fulltone OCD "special sauce", and tons more.
$15 USD, exclusively at the shop. Download a free micro-pack now for 5 additional sounds at The Cell Studio Store.
Why did you decide to release It Was the Rain: Lost Recordings 1993- 1995?
"I felt like I had to. Those tapes are some of our most important recorded material. Somewhere there are faxes from Matt (Sarah Records) giving us production notes about the studio recordings of “Byron”, basically telling us to find what we lost from those “demos”. Sarah did nobody any favors. They’ve passed on demos by Pale Saints, Manic Street Preachers, favorites amongst my favorite bands. What he loved about our music was contained in those recordings. Our friends loved them. I didn’t just set up a couple mics and track an existing band. That’s how I made and probably still make music. The song is written on the chromium oxide! Those recordings kind of are Aberdeen."
