Gear Corner / WINRAR/RAR; PC vs Mac
« on: July 05, 2012, 02:38:51 AM »
I've been using WINRAR and ZIP to pack my files for years (sending big ass 24 bit wav files for collaborators) but so far they were all on PC. Now I'm working with 3 Mac guys. Question:

Does anybody know if there's software for this that works on both platforms? I couldn't find anything so far....

Thanks!  :)

Heads up for my (15 year young) son Daniel.  :)

He just got hired as a drummer for this 3-piece. The guy in the vids is Tommy Meijborg; a very talented local (18 year young) local musician. He's been doing very well lately and has now formed a band with my son in it. They all ready have a few festival gigs lined up for August and September. Later on they will record a proper album as a band.


It's wonderful to see how a couple of 'kids' are so driven, talented and determined to make something happen. No matter how this turns out; I'm one proud father right now!  :mrgreen:

It does! You haven't changed the locks apparently!  :mrgreen:

I've been a bit of a stranger for a while over here for several reasons.  :?
First one is a massive burn out from work that took 1 year off and on to bounce back from. I won't bother you with the details but the bottom line is I'm moving from doing way to many projects back to being a lab-technician again. Suits my health MUCH better.

Second is the fact there's not much going on with Frost* at the moment and after finishing the FFCS I felt no desire to hang around these parts for a while. Again being in the middle of the burn out didn't help either.

Third is I didn't have music to share for a while. The burn out.... oh well, you get the picture.  :roll:

But I is back on track with some new stuff.
The first one is a new RWA track called Eclipse (part 1). I'm currently in the middle of writing and recording part 2.

Eclipse (part 1)

But even more exciting is a new project I'm involved in together with John Beagley (UK), Jeremy Cubert (US) and Tom Kraus (US). Jeremy wrote a track called AETAS SUITE and ask John to write lyrics and add vocals to it. John contacted me for the drums and e-guitars and last but not least Tom got involved doing acoustic guitars. John ended up producing the song as well. This is the end result: Aetas Suite

We're so pleased with the result that we've decided to team up for more. No band name yet.
What's also exciting about this is the fact Jeremy Cubert has some impressive facts on his CV. He wrote and played on a track on the latest Anderson/Wakeman album (Yes) and did a track a couple of months ago with Billy  Sherwood (Yes, Circa). Being part of this is very exciting and I'm eager to find out what else we can come up with!  :)

Other Bands / RWA - Trololo!
« on: February 07, 2012, 01:35:53 PM »
SOAB!!!!!!  :evil:

I had everything lined up! Music, artwork and title. Trololo is obviously the perfect title for this 'chill out' song.
Until I found out someone else is roaming the interwebs with a trololo track.  :shock:

So.... I renamed it BUGS. Since the song starts and ends with them.

Full album released today!

RWA (and ROMANOV) tracks always were (and will continue to be) availalbe for free download on and Nothing new so far.....

But I've decided to put them up for purchase as well in 2012. I let you decide which one you choose. If you're new to the music then by all means download it for free to check it out. If you decide to keep it because you like it... you might consider paying for them.

All my tracks will become available on most common music services (Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody etc) within the next weeks. The album is all ready available at:

« on: January 05, 2012, 12:35:40 PM »
A remix of the original 2006 version. This one is shorter and has new drums and real bass. Kinda transformed from a pop-prog track to a pop-dance-trance-dub_step track. Obviously ........I've spend most of the time on the artwork! :D

My submission for the ReWork Howard Jones project.

Howard Jones - Automaton (RWA-remix)

Sir Jones is one of my 80's hero's and one of the reasons why I bought my first synth (a Korg Polysix) back in '85. I've added my own drums and guitars to this track as well as a tiny bit of keys.

Other Bands / RWA - ELEVEN
« on: November 10, 2011, 04:20:43 PM »
A 'no keys, just guitars' track celebrating the new additions to my studio called ELEVEN.

Ibanez S470L guitar (with DiMarzio picks)

Yamaha BBN5L-II bass

That's eleven strings in total. Hence the brilliant title!  ;)
Also the first time in 12 years I play the bass again myself.
One part of me thinks this track is done. The other part of me want to put in more stuff.
But I'd like to avoid using keys for this one. What do you think?!
