The Making of Devil Ex Machina: Part 1 – Gear and Software



So yesterday, I had the idea to start a mini-series documenting the creation process of the upcoming Devil Ex Machina EP on The Santtu Pesonen Project’s YouTube channel. This is the first episode of the series where I discuss the gear and software used in the making of the album. I also give a brief description of the recording setup I used for each instrument.

Currently, the series is intended to be a 5-part mini-documentary. The topics covered in each episode are planned to be as follows:

  1. Gear and Software
  2. Drums
  3. Bass and Guitars
  4. Vocals
  5. Mixing and Mastering

Stay tuned for the rest of it!

The SP Project album #8 title reveal + teaser


So I’ve been meaning to make a post about this here, and now that I finally took it upon myself to do so… well, here we are.

Anyway, chances are you already caught it on either Facebook or Twitter, but I released a little teaser video of the upcoming The Santtu Pesonen Project EP. I also gave the title of the album: Devil Ex Machina.

Speaking of the new EP, the production stage of it is now finished. The album will be ready for release as soon as my commissionee gets the cover art done. I’ll also be doing a limited-edition physical run of the EP, so keep an eye peeled for details on that in the near future!

And in case you didn’t see the teaser, the link to it is right here:

Bye for now!

Production for The SP Project’s 8th album begins!


So in case the title didn’t tell you enough, The Santtu Pesonen Project‘s 8th album is now officially underway! I just did the drum parts for all 4 songs yesterday – so that’s roughly 25% of each song done already.

I’ll be posting more on my social media outlets as I work on the album (or EP, if you want to be accurate). The album’s details will also be revealed along the way – it might take a while longer than usual, though, main reason being that I outsourced the cover art and commissioned it from an actually competent artist for once.

Either way, stay tuned!
