12-04-2020 (10.9) : 10 Years of Arachno SoundFont: My Tribute to its users
10 years after its release on December 4th 2010, Arachno SoundFont has been featured in more than 3,850 YouTube videos and 300 SoundCloud tracks, by a growing community of 500+ users releasing new contents everyday!
This video is my tribute to all users of Arachno SoundFont, and highlights some of their records, best works and initiatives I witnessed during this decade.
Thank you all for your support during all those years! Even those I didn't mention in this tribute video. I'd NEVER have expected so much praise and love 10 years later!
12-04-2019 (10.8) : Search arrangements directly from left menu
For 19 years now, you've been more and more people to come here, mainly since Arachno SoundFont has been released and even more since new user-made arrangements are released regularly.
As a result, I added, into the "Latest tracks" on the left menu, a new search field so you can now find arrangements using keywords, being either from the arrangement's title, author, or any other information. This search field is thus available from all the website's pages.
Furthermore, I also updated the website with security updates through all this year.
Thanks, as usual, for all your posivie feedback, either through e-mail, the website's Facebook page, or on YouTube or SoundCloud channels, which are now 10 years old!
12-04-2018 (10.7) : Get newly-added arrangements information through RSS feeds
This website has been online for 18 years! To celebrate this event, you can now benefit from a new way to get the latest updates from the website, even if I don't add any news about them.
Most updates focusing nowadays on the arrangements made by users of Arachno SoundFont, who keep adding new contents on YouTube or SoundCloud on a regular basis.
To help you remaining up-to-date with the regular new additions, you can now choose to receive them as RSS feeds, just like you could do with the news until now.
These feeds can help you to automatically receive the new arrangements in your web browser, mail client, or any other RSS-compatible software. For more information on those feeds and their use, check the Arachno SoundFont arrangements page.
12-04-2017 (10.6) : Introducing my favorite tracks, synthwave playlists
My SoundCloud account became somewhat popular the day I chose to build some giant playlist, featuring all tracks I used to love on this platform, sorted in a logical order. So, I simply thought I should share these playlists with you today.
These playlists, splitted in two parts (part 1 and part 2) carry tracks from a specific music genre named "synthwave". This is my current favorite music style, consisting of tracks inspired by 80's movie soundtracks, artists, songs and fashion, mostly instrumental, filled with awesome synthesizer sounds by artists from all over the world, inspired by synthpop legends like John Carpenter, Vangelis, Depeche Mode, Tangerine Dream...
Featuring famous sounds from the best synthesizers ever, including Roland D-50, Korg M1, Yamaha DX7... just like Arachno SoundFont.
If I had to comeback to the music scene - and I hope I will, one day - I would chose to produce music in this style.
So, stay tuned for more exciting contents, these playlists are updated on a very regular basis!
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!
