ABOUT THIS PAGE

You'll find here an history of all the updates I've done to the website since its creation. Of course, some information can be now obsolete, but I thought that you might be interested to know how the website evolved through the years to become like it is today.

If you want to be kept informed when major modifications will be made to this website, you can subscribe to the newsletter, but you first need to create a member account.

You can also use the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of this website to automatically receive the news in your web browser, mail client, or any other RSS-compatible software.

Two feeds are available: one can be used to receive the news in English, while the other can be used to receive them in French. They're updated each time a news is being published on the website. You can choose to receive one of these feeds, or you can also subscribe to both.

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) Feed Usually, to add RSS feeds to your favorite software, you must search for the RSS feeds icon (see aside), click on it, and select the feed you want to use. Some examples:

  • With Internet Explorer, the icon is located on the upper right toolbar (you can use the Alt+X shortcut)
  • With Firefox & Opera, the icon is on the right of the address bar.

Most RSS-compatible software also offers an option to re-download the feeds periodically (eg. each day, each week...) so that you can get updated news on a regular basis, without having to do anything else.

As I usually don't update the website on a very regular basis (eg. daily), I'd ask you to use a reasonable delay to download these feeds periodically (eg. once or twice a month) in order to save some of the website's bandwidth.

04-30-2017 (10.5.1) : Introducing new Duke It Out In D.C. soundtrack recorded with Arachno SoundFont, and several other artists

Several Arachno SoundFont users recently released some exciting new tracks, so I thought it was the right time to feature them with some special news.

First of all, NightFright, who previously released several music packs from famous video games (DOOM, Duke Nukem 3D...), just unveiled a new YouTube playlist of a totally new soundtrack, composed by James "Jimmy" Paddock, for the Duke It Out In D.C. extension pack for Duke Nukem 3D, released in 1997. And I'm very proud to announce that both chose Arachno SoundFont to record the whole soundtrack, "for best overall quality", and, "in [their] opinion, the result is absolutely fantastic". So, you have to check it out on the Duke Nukem 3D High Resolution Pack website!

Klaus Jupitz, a long-time and loyal Arachno SoundFont user, also decided to permanently release all his tracks on his YouTube channel. His work is really impressive, being either original compositions - including a track inspired by my own Arabian Feelings and Green Hills tracks - or covers of famous 80's music. He also gives me precious feedback on the SoundFont itself, and I really appreciate his support!

On a similar note, Ronald Karle is a new Arachno SoundFont user who releases original tracks, mostly featuring strings like violins, at a very fast pace.

And, to finish, MyNewSoundtrack is a quite popular YouTube composer who releases covers of video game music, and some of his releases are featuring Arachno SoundFont in a very-well mixed version. Check out Sewer' Surfin cover from TMNT: Turtles in Time!

Once again, I'm extremely proud of the popularity of Arachno SoundFont among users from all around the world. Since its release in 2010, the SoundFont has been downloaded nearly 100,000 times, just from this website. This is truly awesome, and I can only thank you a billion times for your support!
