I did the music for a fun and frustrating iOS game by Steve Baker called Collidatron. It’s all good fun and only 79p from the Apple App Store. Support indie gaming and let me know what level you get to, because I’m stuck on 5.
My new album, entitled inSpiral, is out now. It’s available from digital stores including iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon and others. inSpiral by rozz3r I thought it might be of interest to detail how the album was made. Anyone who follows my blog will know that I occasionally put up videos of synth jams, using hardware… Read More rozz3r – inSpiral (new album out now)
Boxed Ear (my commercial samples and synth sound company) have just released a brilliant sound set for the Dave Smith Instruments Evolver. It’s a fabulous sound set by ambient electronica noodlists, Two Quiet Suns. There’s 256 sounds in the set (two banks) and they’re packed with organic leads, vintage basses, luscious evolving pads and otherworldly… Read More 256 new sounds for the Dave Smith Evolver
Boxed Ear turned a year old this month and released it’s thirds product, OSCar for Kontakt. Unsurprisingly it’s a sample pack made with the famous OSC OSCar.

My wife was complaining that she could never listen to any of my songs and so I… Read More New rozz3r album: rarities
Boxed Ear has released it’s first product, the Mighty M5, a Kontakt sample pack made entirely with the mighty Macbeth M5 synthesizer. The M5 is a huge synth, both physically and sonically. Sampling it has been no small feat! The M5’s sound is characterised by its full, rich bass, crystal high end and distinctly analog… Read More Sampling the Macbeth M5
D.R.O.I.D. by rozz3r My new EP is out. Available only through rozz3r DROID. Four tracks of post apocalyptic breaks, rave, dub, dubstep and analogue modular synthesis.
It arrived! I haven’t had a great deal of time to play yet, but initial thoughts are that it oozes analogue character. The oscillators have an insane range (something like 15 octaves). The filters are clean, but very nice sounding. The envelopes could be a little longer, and I can’t for the life of me… Read More My new baby – the Analogue Systems RS8000
