I compose a blend of trance and house with my own spin on it. I also spin trance and house.
Equipment used:
I use many upon many plugins for the best/easiest EDM prodction program, FL Studio. I also use Adobe Audition when recording line level stuff and thats about it. I'm starting to use my own custom effects and I of course have a nice 72-key midi controller.
Anything else...?

Hey. I just wanted to post that my new website is up and operational. Its gravely out of date to the time that DSE was still a big possibility (which its a future goal but unfortunately, my funds still have not come through). I'll be updating it as soon as I possibly can.

Hey. I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. I'm sitting here full as a mofo wondering, 'Where am I going, where is my life taking me... where the hell can I go?' I've been playing around wwith my guitar a lot lately, discovering some nice techniques and styles that I hope the many Pink Floyd fans out there will appreciate :). I'm also working extremely hard at racking my brain to make my up and coming trance track the best I can make it.

Effects, effects, effects and detail as well. Those are the things that make a track sh*** or awesome as f***. If a song has tons of detail, not only is it just nice to listen to, its fun to listen to as well and I think thats whats most important. If you make the track fun to listen to, one that youre always discovering a new way to listen to it, like maybe a different way to hear a particular chord against the bassline or the kick or the effects going on, thats when you have become a good song writer. I'm unfortunately far from that reality but then again, who is ever close? How many producers out there can honestly say they have finished a track? Sure, they sold it, but there is always that little attachment to that song that stirs inside you, telling you everytime you listen to it that if you had changed that note or maybe changed the wet/dry level of a particular effect +/-5% that it would have been a much better track.

I apologize for not getting all those bit pieces up in a week. Theres been tons of stuff going on including producing, that seems much more important that sharing shitty music with people :P. I'd much rather share excellent music with you guys than showing you how shitty I can make music :). Well, I'm off for a little while. I'll try to get 5 more uploaded when I get back to my house (from my parents).

Cheers,
Zac

I began uploading my unfinished works of this year. Some I may complete, most I wont. I have many more finished songs that youll have to wait for the album release to hear however :). I should be uploading 5 every day for 7 days for a total of 35 unfinished tracks. Theres a lot of good ideas in them and some of them sound very nice and easy to complete but we'll just have to wait and see what happens :).

Cheers,
Zac

Hey. I'm working on designing several custom hardware FX units. I'm interested what you guys think would be a great new effect. I'm trying to keep it fairly cheap and out of the DSP domain at the moment but its a possibility. I already have designs drafted for a Digital/Analog tape delay using a cd to cassette adapter and old junked cassette players and then some photoelectric sensor controlled stuff. If you have something you think would make an interesting effect, drop me a line (darksword87@hotmail.com) :).

Oh, and watch next week because I'll be uploading some of my bit works from this past year, just to keep this site up to date with my current doings :).

Cheers,
Zac

Hey. I havent posted anythign here for a long while and I figured I'd fill people in. DSE hasnt quite taken off just yet. Its still a very big priority of mine in the near future to get it up and going but unfortunately, my money didnt come through as well as expected. That doesnt mean that I'm stepping back from production though. In face, since I've started college, I've ramped up my production quite a bit. I should probably be posting more of my stuff here and now that I think of it, I'm pretty sure I will from now on. I've gotten into vocals and such and more of a housey/trancey kinda mixed style but I also do other stuff now as well. I also produce some electro-rock style tracks. I only have one up at the moment but if anyone is interested in hearing the unmastered version, check it out over at www.soundclick.com/zacdoyle. I think thats pretty much it for news. Feel free to add me to your myspace account now as well (just set one up last night). Also, I have a FaceBook account for anyone thats alumni or is still in college.

Updated 05-17-2005 (DarkSword Enteroprises)
--------------------
I have several updates to share with you all. First of all, DarkSword Enterprises will be coming a reality this June. I have pinned down some investments and it will allow DSE to sign, hopefully, atleast six artists at the start. This will include the pressing of cds and vinyls for our artists.

The other update is that I am cutrrently looking for some donated bandwidth where I can spin live for you all. I know my server has been down for quite some time. It came down to being too much maintenance for one person, me, to handle so I shut it down. A preview of the updated site (though quite outdated from the current revision) can be found at www.sitesled.com/idarkiswordi/. The official URL should become www.d-s-e.org very soon so watch for that as well.

Thank you all.
Zac

Just wanted to say thank you to all who have and will download Tranquility Volume 3 and Volume 4. Currently, Tranq3 is just below 400 and Tranq4 is just below 350 so all in all a good run. I also wanted to let you all know that I'm massively upadating my site at the moment. An 24/7 FTP server with a big pipe is on the way as well as multilingual pages. I apologize that they are unfortunately only machine translated but the languages that will be available are English, Dutch, Spanish, French, Russian, Norwegian and German. I hope these will better all of your expiriences. Out.

Updated 10-17-2004 (General Update)
--------------------
Contrary to popular belief, I have not died :). I feel I must appologize for not selling the cd as of now. Please give me some time. I had an issue come up in my life that must be resolved before I feel I can release my album. Hopefully, to keep you entertained until then, check out my latest song, '90 Days'.

Also, please check out my new website at:

http://d-s-e.no-ip.com/

Along with that, my forums are also up (though dry at the moment). The website for the forums is:

Hey. Just wanted to say I little bit more. I forgot to mention something in the note in Tranquility Volume 2. I am now taking requests for songs to mix and I will mix songs of soundclick artists (but ONLY with soundclick artists permission given to me). I prefer you email the requests to me at (darksword87@hotmail.com) but if you would rather send them in an instant message, my messenger client is up most of the time so just add me and we'll talk :). Well, I have some thing I need to get done so I'm out.

Cheers,

Updated 7-2-2004 (TRANQUILITY VOLUME 2 UP)
--------------------
Ok, firstly the album. I truely haven't a clue what has happened to it but it seems to have not reached its destiantion yet. I suppose it was lost in the mail. I'll try to get to the post office tomorrow and jsut mail another copy and hope it gets there.

Secondly, as I promised, every two weeks on fridays I would release another Tranquility mix. This one does in fact include a track list AND the tracklist to volume 1 (i am deeply sorry for forgetting to include it in volume 1).

I must apologize to the peopel reading this expecting to be able to buy my album in two days. So much has happened this past week and I've not had time to finish mastering and send a master to CafePress.com. I should have it sent out by this monday (hopefully). Until then, I do have something that will hopefully hold you over until then. I have an hour long mix of trance and dance ready to upload across the BitTorrent Network. The address is:

Updated 6-11-2004
--------------------
I still don't have a finalized date for the release of my album but I can tell you that it should be this coming week (hopefully by the 20th and actualyl hopefully sooner). I'm currently mastering all the songs and fixing any flukes in the songs posted and unposted. There should be 17 possibly 18 tracks on the disc when its done and it should show a decent progression through the past two years of learning how to produce music. I hope to start on my next album after I finish the cd mastering.

When my album does become available I will post a notice here and you can check this page as well for indication that it is on sale:

Updated 4-26-2004
--------------------
I figured I might tell people just a tiny bit about my current album-in-works (should be due out sometime around the middle of June). The album name was a split decision between 'Deep Emotion' centering around the extremely deep feelings I've put into the songs and 'Quest for the Sword' centering around the fact that this is my first album and this is the search for my sound. Ultimately, 'Quest for the Sword' felt more suitable. You can be sure that my next album will be entitled 'Deep Emotion' where you can also guarentee there will either be a revamped 'Deep Emotion' song or another verse. Who knows... I know I don't.

Cheers,
