Download surround music files:

It was around the year 2001 when I first started to take an interest in mixing and producing music in 5.1 surround format.

I have created 5.1 mixes of some of my past tracks from various of my solo albums, and I have also created a surround music DVD called Soothe.

My surround music DVD is mixed in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is playable on any standard home DVD player (special DVD-Audio player not required). The DVD is available to buy from my own CD-shop and from CDBaby.

You can play the below AC3 files on your PC or Mac using the program VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc). You can play the WMA files using Windows Media Player.

Important instructions for playing these surround music files:

If you have a 7.1 surround setup or even more speakers than that, please switch your speaker configuration to 5.1 before you play these files. The files are made for 5.1 audio and if your speaker configuration is set to 7.1 or anything else, they will not sound like they are meant to. I have a 7.1 setup myself and if I play these tracks while the speaker configuration is set to 7.1, I just get some mono sound in all the side and rear speakers. Switch your speaker to 5.1 setting for the correctly defined surround sound.

5.1 Surround Test File

I've made this short 5.1 audio file so that you may play it and check whether your speakers are set up correctly for playing these files. You should hear "front left", "center" "front right", "rear left", "rear right" from each of the respective loudspeakers, and then a kind of "mumbling" from your subwoofer (LFE). To download the 5.1 surround test file as WMA (Windows Media Audio), click here. To download the 5.1 surround test file as AC3 (Dolby Digital), click here.

   

"Voyager" - 5.1 mix

This track is brand new and will most likely be included on my next CD. (Be sure to join my newsletter mailing list to be informed when the CD is released later this year!). It's a rather long track at over 14 minutes, and I worked hard on this track so I hope you'll like it. I've made the track available in WMA (Windows Media Audio v10) format, and in AC3 (Dolby Digital) format. (Hint: The WMA file sounds better than the AC3!).

"The Fairy Woods" - 5.1 mix

This song is from my CD "Witchwood", an album of melodic and peaceful fantasy music and mood music. In this song I have used multiple acoustic guitars, which lends itself well for panning out across the whole surround area. Make sure you position yourself in the center between all 4 directional speakers, so you get an even, all-surrounding audio experience. Sit back, close your eyes, and dream youself away to a fantasy world. To download ac3 surround file (approx. 22 MB), click here
