Castle Story Prototype Music

by Josh Whelchel

Mattias and I have put together twelve minutes of music from the Castle Story Prototype that was privately released to backers this past week.

DAW of the Future

by Josh Whelchel

Just scroll down to see the “DAW of the Future” The debate of MAC vs. PC has long been a problem among digital composers.
