I like writing/arranging music, some is done with my own synthesizer some in Reaper.
I mainly arrange my music in Reaper now, mostly because it's quite good, but also because i think the licensing and attitude of Cockos (the company developing Reaper) is remarkable.

Julebal i Nisseland
God Jul alle sammen! Så er der ikke et øje tørt!. Laura står for det meste af vokalen + koret. Claus er nissefar, Dorthe er nissemor og Asger får sidste vers. Laura sang den 8 gange for at få koret på plads. Musikken fandt jeg som midi på nettet og den har jeg næsten ikke ændret på.

Another C64 song, by unknown composer, i somehow can't get further with it. I love the very 80's synth bass.
Play Maximum overdrive
A nice one albeit a bit too short, inspired by the unfortunately widely unknown Alter Der Ruine. I can recommend their excellent record "Giants From Far Away (2008)".
Two ideas in one, the second and best part starts at 50 seconds, the closest thing to Country and Western that i'll ever make :). Don't worry it of course includes the mandatory synth and drums.

combat (Korg-ims 20 iPad)
Attempted to make an ambient loop, beat made with iElectribe, synth lines added in reaper.
C64:Scout (Korg-ims 20 iPad)
I got an ipad the other day, and i've 'played a bit with a 70's Korg Synth (ims-20). It's quite fun to play with and some of the sounds are really nice, but it's not going to replace Reaper :). All sounds are synthetic, and only one of the 6 tracks can be complex, which means it's quite limited, but still it's pretty fun and it's possible to export the song and finish it in a DAW.

C64:Auf Wiedersehen Monty
New song i'm working on, which lacks mosts of the singing.
New song i wrote and recorded quickly, it only took a couple of evenings to do it all. Including me singing and playing power chords besides the usual synth stuff which in this song is mainly a Blofeld.
Play Personal Terror
C64:The Vikings (game over)
I use this a training piece, first version written 12-11-10: Converted the song from midi, rendererd the instruments with stock synth sounds on the Blofeld and added a stock easydrummer beat, then i played the lead with the Ketron rhodes piano. 14-11-10: Repetition 2: added more synth, and played a bit with the drums.
Play C64:The Vikings (game over)
First cut of the new version of Rygar. I just touched up my old version.
You can compare the two versions as i also provided the old version that is created 100% with my own software.

Another song which i wrote quickly, was doing the dishes when i noticed that i was humming a bassline, i instantly dropped the dishwashing and recorded the bassline before i forgot it. I finished the song in a couple of days. Also the first time i've been playing with TC-helicon voicetone for my vocal parts.
I heard a Chemical Brother song where the drums wasn't the usual big beat stuff, and i tried to recreate that feeling in this totally different song. I've been sitting a couple of nights trying to get some lyrics on it, but i didn't end up with anything i liked. The song has quite a bit too synthy feeling in places for my taste.
One of the first songs i wrote and composed in Reaper. It even has a bit of vocals, and it's one of the first evenings with the guitar.
A friend of mine (formerly known as Sky, today he's best known for his lack of starcraft 2 skills) wrote this one for the Amiga many years ago. I did a remix and added some of my own stuff in the outro, the sound in the beginning is very authentic to the original. I have no clue what the original song title (myamigaisdead) means.

C64:Battle Valley 2010
A friend of mine (Hello Peter) has this c64 song originally composed by Jeroen Tel in the 80's as his favorite song, so over the last 4 years i've made countless versions for him, this incarnation has been destroyed a bit by my bad guitar skills.

Another c64 song i've rearranged, and it needs alot of more work, also these simple guitar parts should be rerecorded, they're not tight enough. I guess it just shows that i've not practised guitar for that many hours yet.
