Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the album Decline recently completed and
released by my side-project rockband called Submareen. This is a real
band playing real instruments (no synthesized sounds at all,
everything recorded thru mics), mostly in the classic rock style. The
whole album (9 tracks, 51 minutes) comprises original music written by
the band. The album was recorded and produced using Linux, for the
most part Ardour 2 with 'mixing in the box' done with LinuxDSP, IR and
some TAP plugins. Recorded, edited and mixed within Ardour in 44.1k /
24bit. A separate "mastering session" with the 24-bit track mixes was
setup with the LinuxDSP multi band compressor and TAP scaling limiter
as mastering processors to produce the final audio, dithered to 16
bits via the Ardour exporting process. A cue file was made with
gcdmaster and the master audio file was cut in tracks via shnsplit to
obtain the final CD tracks.

You can give it a complete (128kbps quality) listen at:

Some additional information regarding its production is available on
the band's website at:

In case you have any questions regarding the recording, production,
mixing or whatever, I'm happy to answer them. Comments are also
