Sonic Reseach & some typography enhancements

The myth of the "Deadmau5 sound"

Some time ago I did some sonic research in Reason to try to immitate the "Deadmau5" lead. After some tweaking and experimenting with the lovely THOR (The other synths in reason blows, sadly) and posted a sample on IDM Forums I got some wild feedback since all the kids seems to love that sound.

Here is an audio file to prove that you can make that kind of rich sound in reason.

Helvetica Fetish

I wanted experiment on the website a little bit so I added a bit of Helvetica Neue flavour for those lucky ones that sit on a mac or have the fonts installed in their OS. For the rest of visitor's it degrades gracefully to similar (but much more ugly looking) Arial. And if you wonder why the body text is "big", I just got inspired by iA's 100%Easy-2-Read standards, and that browsers choose the default font-size to 16px.

Hopefully, sometime I will have the energy to port the website over to Wordpress to enable some commenting and other dynamic goodies.
