    Two weeks ago I started trying out podcasts seriously for the first time. So far I mainly tried the ones from a German news radio station (http://www.dradio.de/podcast/). I downloaded the audio files about topics I found interesting and listened to them while traveling to and from work. I really enjoyed it – especially because of the facts that I could now listen to talks and reports I am really interested in and I didn’t had to pay attention to when they are broadcasted. However I found it quite cumbersome to navigate through the radio station’s web page, to select each podcast separately, to download them and finally to transfer them to my neat Samsung T9.

    So I started looking for some tools that could simplify this process. I finally came across a handy software called myPodder provided for free by Podcast Ready. Podcast Ready provides an online catalog of available podcasts from different sources and to my surprise they also have that German radio station listed. The interesting thing about their software is the fact that you can directly install it onto your mobile audio player and have it launched automatically the moment it is connected to a computer. This means you can easily charge your player with new podcasts from any computer having an internet connection. Simply connect the player, wait for the program to launch, select some new podcasts and download them.

    In 2006 I was confronted with some big unwanted changes in my life. The songs of this album are strongly influenced by these experiences.
    You can listen to the tracks on my artist website at http://elektrofever.de. I like these tracks a lot so please give them a try too!

    The songs of the album “Hornado – the Soundtrack” were composed as background music for the action shooter Hornado. The game can be downloaded for free at http://www.freewarefiles.com/Hornado-V_program_1690.html. Try it, it’s great!

    The songs are not very long because of size limitations for the Hornado download package.

    “The First Way Out” was my very first album. I released it under the pseudonym “Virtual Division” and sold about 30 CDs (woohoo!). All tracks were created using a MIDI sequencer and the soundfont bank feature of my good ol’ Soundblaster AWE 32.

    The album contained 14 different songs. My favorite track (the last of the album) is available here for streaming or downloading.

    [14] World Of Thoughts – 7:14

    Lower the lights, take a deep breath, lay back and enjoy this piece of music.
