Yep, interesting stuff. And looks great. Was delayed being released and apparently has problems in some hosts (Live), but I think its going to be really fun to play with. And will be excellent as a learning tool for anyone contemplating a physical modular. I will pick this up. Be good to see how it compares to NI's Reaktor 6, Blocks.

It made me buy Reaktor 6 for the Blocks modules.

Yep, I'd second the Valhalla reverbs. Excellent.

Yep, these things work both ways ... recording into and listening from a computer. You will get a better quality signal from it than using the built in audio output.

Of course, it depends how fussy you are about pristine sound quality.
And you won't notice any difference unless you have a good set of phones or speakers connected to it.

Looking at my Focusrite, you will see two Monitor Outputs on the back to connect to your amp or powered speakers. And you see two heaphone outputs on the front, with individual volume knobs.

Chris. Yes it is essentially a nice sound card, which is an analog to digital converter, and vice versa. Considerably better than the default one in the computer itself. The more you pay the better the converters and the more (and varied) ins and outs and other features it has. And yes, these days it is a separate box that connects to the computer by USB (Windows) or a Mac equivalent.

Even relatively inexpensive audio interfaces are damn good these days ... compared to 15 years ago.

Here is a neat Focusrite box that I currently use

I was listening to a lot of Cowboy Junkies today.
And a mixture of Pete Namlook things. Miss seeing new works.

Yes, a lot to like about that one Julio. Enjoyed it.

A new work of mine.



Fictions and Poetics : Anatomy of Melancholy

This second release from Fictions and Poetics continues the explorations begun on
Our Last Days but develops into new creative realms. A pinnacle of this release is the
almost 18 minute deeply engaging, subtle and restrained title track Anatomy of Melancholy.
And yes, there are some Murcof-inspired pieces on this album.


It is a download only release, available through Bandcamp:

Anatomy of Melancholy on Bandcamp

Please do have a listen.
Comments very welcome.

Enjoy !

Really nice feel to the music/timbres.
Made me listen to Chromaticity and Optical Flood. Enjoyable stuff.
I can tell you are enjoying yourself.

OK ladies, lets quit all this personal nonsense.
Next personal attack post gets deleted.

And Drone On, see me after class.   ;D

Sounds good, Julio. Be interested to hear your thoughts as you spend more time with it.

I'm beginning to like the look of a couple of Mother-32 units.
Having the patching all on the side, with a clean accessible control panel is attractive and practical.
Maybe even get the 3 tier with a moog case to put some non-moog modules in.

Interesting to see digital emulations of specific eurorack modules begin to appear.

Reaktor blocks is one example. Including integrating these with physical modulars.
This video is fairly technical, but contains fascinating ideas:


And now Softube are doing emulations:  http://www.softube.com/index.php?id=news150
Be interesting to see that in action when released.
