Glad to hear it Chris. Yes, the first track is the weakest for me too, but then the album really begins and is a mighty fine trip that could go on forever.

Yep, did the same last year. Mike deleted it.   ;D

John ... you will be remembered for these two lines, if nothing else.   :o

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Synth Wobbly effect

I created an almost identical sound by feeding a guitar-like synth sound
through a phaser then into a tremelo effect and adjusting them a bit.

I'd imagine the Jenkins guy could get that sound by sending a fairly clean
electric guitar through a multi-effect pedal that has both phaser and tremelo effects.

The tremelo, as Pete suggested, is the main wobbly part.

Yep, I'm constantly amazed by companies putting one patch or one style of music in a video to highlight an instrument that otherwise does so many things. Their emphasis is clearly on the flashy/cool/mindless video rather than the sound and potential of what they are selling.

My view on their synths is that they are generally very flexible when you dig into them, and they do lots of nice things. I don't think they ALL sound the same.

I'm actually not a big fan of analog (analog sound too much the same to me -- which is a clue), so that they are not great emulations is not a problem here.

I'd rather have the enticing variety of the Native Instrument synth set than these. I use NI a lot more.

Yep, I bought it for $199 a year or so ago, which was half off.
I bet they have a deal on the new collection before too long.

The Spark drum machine software is very good, btw.

I also like the Prophet V, when it is in the VS mode.
And also particularly like the Oberheim SEM.

I see they have version 4 of this set out, which has a few new instruments.
Some of the earlier interfaces are on the small side. Perhaps they have improved this in the new collection.

Their keyboard controllers are a good price. As are the little analog synths, not tried them though.
I do have their Beatstep controller. Its great.

Many thanks for the comments, Chris. Great that you are enjoying them.

I find Robert's work to be quite addictive ... it is just so listenable and consistent in its mood and quality.
He's one of those artists where if you like one album you will probably like the rest of them.
You have been warned.  :)

I just put his recent Forgotten Harbors release up on Bandcamp.
And will add more things as time goes by.

Always sad to see someone go at such a young age.   :(
I've bought a few of his synths over the years. Fascinating, but I did find their sound to be fairly similar, probably due to their sample sets.

It's a long, slowly developing movie. A bit of a 2001 mood in places. Don't expect non-stop action. Yep, overlook the science and just enjoy the mood, characters, sets and cinematography.
We enjoyed it.
