rumours suggest they have been being sold to another "big company" it would make sense..because of the lack of information on the website.

So, if it's not 'artistic', what else is it - do you think he's made a technical error of judgement ?
Downloaded your video, but I didn't get it, playing around with an Eq doesn't really show what you're trying to get at.
On the subject of noiser and Eqs, I use a high Q parametric Eq to 'soften' noise textures (or just noise), I find the frequencies vary with the sound, but yes 4k - 8K is usually the range (using up to 3 narrow Q cuts). A 'steam' like sound is much more pleasing to these ears than unfiltered noise.
drone on... I can answer the Vir Unis question as he's an old friend (since teens). He's semi-active on Facebook - and is about to release The Book of Mutations 2 after a long break from releasing ambient.
Posted Oct 22 by John / Vir: "This a 20+ minute preview of an upcoming Vir Unis album on AtmoWorks. I plan to work with some very talented and creative musicians on this throughout this Autumn and Winter. It's s continuation of Book of Mutations, which can be purchased at store.atmoworks.com "

24 bit is definitely no placebo effect.. It is always frustrating to have to down sample to 16 bit.. When you hear such drastic difference.. But it does also matter what music.. But especially with ambient music I hear a difference.. If I buy an digital flac album I would easily choose the 24 bit if there was a choice.
Many blind tests regarding 16 vs 24 bit have proved that peopled can´t hear a difference. In any case, when it comes to CD anything has to go down to 16 bit anyway. To hear a difference especially (!) in ambient music is a huge myth for me. When it come to classical music with a lot (!) of dynamics there is a reason for this higher bit/sample rate rate, but when when it comes to Ambient I don´t know any music in this genre using the full dynamic making it worth at all to for the additional headroom nor a higher sampling rate.
Are people really be able to hear a difference between 192kbit and 320kbit mp3?
But OK, it´s usual that those believers feel better if they can say they feel have the tools or special gear (the price for the additional investment in those cases needs an explanation too) or rendering options. I´m pretty sure, if I would offer 2 unnamed files for a blind testing concerning this issue, those people would avoid to be part of that test.
I am really impressed by what Antelope are doing lately. I still think the overall most impressive piece in thier line right now is the zen studio. It's just a killer forward thinking complete package.
As such I can't wait to check out the new devices they announced at AES
