Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Moog's New Polyphonic Synth....One
« on: October 11, 2018, 09:22:32 AM »
Hmm, I didn't watch the entire video, but based on about half of it that I did see I have to say I was not impressed with the sound of this new synth. I'll wait to hear more of it later when we get some proper sounds, or I can play one in person somewhere.

In about 23 hours we are done so this is the last day to contribute to our campaign. Thanks again to all of you who contributed or helped spread the word, we couldn't have done this without your support. Now the fun/hard part starts, making this a reality.

We've reached a milestone, we now have more than 100 pledges to this campaign. Thatís incredible. One hundred friends, new and old, super excited enough about how cool this project is that they actually took the time to pre-ordered a copy of this album to make sure that it would happen. You people are the best! 

So to help us celebrate this milestone I have a little video for you. You might have seen this on Facebook already, if not here it is for everyone to see. But first, a little back story.

As you might be aware Mark and I first met at Soundquest Fest back in 2010. We were both performing separate sets. That was until I invited Mark to join me on part of mine, and the rest they say is history.  During our soundcheck our friend Eckart was there filming everything. He heard about our kickstarter campaign, so in an effort to help us out he made this little video from footage from that soundcheck, this is the beginning of what all has happened since. So here it is:

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed to this project. This is our last week and we are still short of our goal of $4500. Remember, if we do not reach this goal, we do not get any funding. So all this hard work and effort by us, and all of you is for nothing. So if you have been putting off making a pledge, now is as good a time as any.

Thanks again for all your support, we greatly appreciate it very much.

Everything and Nothing / Re: CD Duplication Plants
« on: September 14, 2018, 12:13:51 PM »
I think to do a CD and not a CDr the minimum required is a run of 300 discs. We are planning on using a place here in LA called easy disc. https://www.easydisc.net

So as of right now we are just a tad under $2500, which is great. Thanks to everyone who has donated to this project, Mark and I are very grateful. But, this means we are still $2000 short of our goal. So, if you have been considering contributing now would be a good time. Also, sharing it on your social media would help spread the word so feel free to do that. Here is the link again:

Thanks again, let's make this CD become a reality.  :)

Just another update. As of right now we are at $1700 or 37% of our goal. Thank you very much to anyone who has donated to our project. If you have been considering donating now is as good a time as any. We have about 3 weeks left and a long way to go to make our goal. Also please spread the word about our campaign to anyone you think would care. We are trying to reach as many people as we can but we can't do it on our own. Thank you.

As of today we are at 13% of our goal so please support us so we can make this happen. Any support is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hey everyone. Mark Seelig and I have started a Kickstarter campaign to fund out latest CD project. It's a double CD called Cave Dwellers. Basically it's an all or nothing campaign, if we don't reach our goal then we will not be releasing it as a CD. So please go check it out and support it so we can bring you more music that you love. Here's a video message we made for the campaign that has some of the new music in the background:

And here is where you can find our kickstarter page:

Thank you for your support.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: analog Robert Rich
« on: August 20, 2018, 11:03:01 AM »
Robert uses whatever works, samplers, digital synths, acoustic instruments, not just analog synths. I would say Bestiary might be a good bet for most analog album.

Hypnos News and Announcements / Re: Hypnos releases for 2015 ?
« on: February 27, 2018, 11:40:39 AM »
I don't think of Hypnos as dead as a label, but I understand that when a long period of time passes between releases, people will assume it is.

To me it appears to be more of an undead label.  ;D

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Drone/pad EQ-ing.
« on: January 05, 2018, 11:05:11 AM »
Drones with "knife in ear" frequencies I always notch out with EQ using vary narrow bands of Q to just effect those frequencies that are annoying. And yes, try this before applying effects, especially reverb.

I've found that if the audio volume in iTunes is set to max I sometimes get a bit distortion. So, check your volume settings and turn it down a notch or two to see if that helps.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Spotify and 'fake' ambient artists ?
« on: August 16, 2017, 10:46:28 AM »
If Spotify is behind this, or are letting these fake artist take over their service, it will probably end up killing itself off. In a way it kind of reminds me of myspace. At one point it was the place to be, but then the owners got greedy and put so many ads up that it was a waste of time to even attempt to go on it anymore. People will figure out it's nothing but a scam of fake artists and they will stop going.

Looks like a great time, it reminds me of my time at Oberheim.  :)

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: The Modular Synthesizer Thread
« on: April 26, 2017, 09:35:21 PM »
Damn, I was waiting for the Rossum sampler module but this may be better for live use. I'll be checking this one out soon.

Dave Rossum showed his sample at Superbooth in Berlin.  Seems it maybe more powerful for sound manipulation.  Loren I do think for live performance the Bitbox maybe it.  Im using the Bitbox more like a Daw but it would be so straight forward to record parts of a set prior to a performance and trigger those sounds live as well as the unit has 12 presets available so that actually is 12 x16=192 possible sounds depending on micro sd memory.

Good to know, that was what I was thinking about using if for. Right now I use Mainstage on my laptop for that, it works pretty well. I actually just bought a newer but used (mid 2012 model, the last with firewire) Macbook Pro to use Mainstage 3 for my upcoming performance on June 3rd. I guess if I do some sort of modular only show I could get a bitbox and use that instead, not sure if that would be considered cheating though.  ;D

The Bitbox is a 24bit 48k stereo sampler for eurorack.

Damn, I was waiting for the Rossum sampler module but this may be better for live use. I'll be checking this one out soon.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: TC Electronics' reverbs
« on: April 12, 2017, 09:47:53 AM »

Thanks. Really nice to get your take. I've noticed more ambient musicians use Lexicon, Eventide, and other brands and I was a bit curious what the consensus was on TC. I know Loren Nerell and Oophoi have used TC reverbs before but outside of that, I haven't seen too many ambient musicians talk about them.

I believe Robert Rich has had a M3000 for awhile now. I have the Reverb 4000 which I've now had for over a decade, it was my big splurge back then and am glad I got it. It's very different then a Lexicon or Eventide. I also have a Lexicon 300m, which I am starting to get more into, I think they complement each other a lot, the TC is more clear and good for solo instruments, the Lexicon is thicker and can have extremely long verbs, I think it maxes out at 65 seconds!  I also have a Fireworx but I've never used it as a reverb.

Anyway I hope you enjoy your M300, let us know what you think of it.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: TC Electronic VSS3 Native Reverb is here
« on: January 15, 2017, 04:04:45 PM »
Loren the only reference TC makes is porting it over from the system 6000, perhaps the older Mk1,

Well in truth it is in the 6000/4000, but it also probably sounds better than saying it was from the 6000 then saying that it was ported over from our now long discontinued M5000/3000 series.  ;D

BTW I see they are offering a 14 day trial, if the trial period for this is like the one offered on the Powercore, they mean 14 actual days of use, not just 14 days of sitting around not being used. I have some plugins on my powercore that are still active, years active after starting the demo on them. Opps! I am wrong, the powercore had a real time use of twenty hour demo limit, not 14 days.
