22 Dec FREE! – Diva Lupus
Hello my lovelies!
It’s been an interesting year, full of highs and lows but, I’ve finally put together this Christmas freebie that I’ve had on my mind for a few years now: Diva Lupus.
When I was a little boy, back in 1984, there was the most magical children’s television show that Christmas: The Box of Delights. Based on the novel by John Masefield, it was a celebration of the BBC’s most cutting edge special effects, alongside a huge slice of old-fashioned yuletide nostalgia.
Added to that, it had a wonderful soundtrack by Roger Limb and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (the legends behind the music for Doctor Who and Quatermass and the Pit). Alongside the lush analogue synths that have inspired this soundset, Roger Limb also brought some cosy, Christmas charm via the use of harp, bass clarient and French horn.
The soundtrack was finally released a couple of years ago and, ever since, I’ve wanted to create an homage soundset. It’s not strictly an attempt to emulate the sounds from it, more to make sounds that have the spirit of it (with a couple of emulations in there too).
I hope you enjoy it and have a lovely Christmas! After all, the wolves are running…
