New Music from the new "virtual" studio setup

New music from the new computer / recording studio.  Testing out a new Joyo British Sound pedal as my main "amp" source.

I also decided to just use my own name instead of the Dimaension X band name.  I'm thinking of releasing all new music under my own name.  Hmmmm?

Dimaex Productions to be updated soon

My 4 year-old Lenovo All-In-One computer died.  Yep. Just flat out died. Stopped working. Great.

I've ordered a new computer system, this time avoiding the AIO style setups, and am going back to a standard Tower-with-monitor.  This time around I'm getting an ACER system with 8G speed, 2TB storage, lots of USB inputs, etc. I have to re-install all my various software - Reaper, EZ Drummer, RealEight, Focusrite and Yamaha drivers, Inkscape, Paint.NET, ShotCut and Windows Movie Maker, CDBurn, MP3Tag, ... good gosh that's a lot of software.  Not to mention my various VSTs and Samples that I use to make music.

This weekend my plan is to clean up my existing studio area and get it ready for when the new system comes in.  I have so much stuff sitting around that I just don't use anymore, lots of cables, adapters, an old "boom-box" that used to be my studio monitors, and lots of old software boxes that have 20 year-old software games that won't work on any new PC systems.

I've decided to look at this as a good thing - I'm re-building and streamlining my multi-media studio, and refining it to just what I need.  I'm also getting ready to upload a bunch of art to either RedBubble or TeeSpring to sell T-shirts and other "merch" of my album covers and other abstract art designs.  So maybe I'll even be able to earn some "passive" income.  I'll be posting links to my "merch" as soon as it is ready to go on my YouTube video pages and here at my main website.

Astral Prison, 1st album for 2019 (a little early)

A late Xmas and early New Year's present ...

Astral Prison by Dimaension X - the 1st album release for Dimaension X for 2019.  Focusing on simple melodies and repetition, dynamics, and ambient atmospheres.  This album is a bit more guitar oriented, with the synths taking a backseat. 


Music composed* and performed by Dimaension X

*Song #5 may bear a striking similarity to King's X's song "Pleiades".  Didn't even realize it when I was recording it.

Dimaex5005 - probably the last album of the season ...

So here's the latest Dimaension X album - Dimaex5005.  It's probably the last full album I'm going to complete this year, since I'm kind of running out of ideas, and want to try to come up with something new.  Maybe more metal, maybe something a bit more improvisational, maybe a pure ambient guitar album, whatever.

Anywhoo, here is the info below:
