What adblocker do you use ?

I can tell you in my slimjet browser I use it has a built in adblock plus adblocker, I did recently switch to uBlock orgin adblocker and wow I would not make this thread if it wasnt for the fact that I am deeply impressed with how much the pages loud now.. very dramatic difference.

This benchmark test comparing the most popular ad blockers cofirm that ublock orgin is the best right now.
I use it in combination with Ghostery also, they both complete each other I think.

Listening: Podcasts, Mixes, and Music Sample Clips / Ambient 021
« on: Yesterday at 08:53:48 PM »
This was recorded in 2009. I would say it is more focused on good sound then maybe the most artistic music (gets more mesmerizing towards the end though). It can appeal to steve roach and opphoi fans, especially the ending part I would say is very oophoi-like.

 From what I recall I used ariesverb as reverb. What I have learned since 2008 it is that I do not need the ambient to be that melody based, If I would had done it today it would be more atonal just lite the ending part. Looking forward to record more 2017 starting to feel inspired and ready now again. Just sharing my old stuff first.

December is a really good time for Steve Roach music for some reason..  anyway 3 new albums will be released soon to welcome 2017, I hope that means some will be released in December otherwise January. No more information has been given.. stay tuned for more information.

This is one of my very first ambient  recording attempts in 2009, the first synth I was using was NI Massive,  I want to return to it again next time I start recording music

When I did record this was really into steve roach immersion series so I recorded this live recording in real time  using omnisphere and some real time modulation no loops of any kind was used I was physically playing every note on my keyboard. It Needs some kind of remastering would make it a lot more pleasing for sure. It was recorded 2009, it was actually sent to steve roach himself privately I told him I really like his immersion series.

If any one for fun want to remaster it please feel to do so (ask for wav file in that case)
I hope to record some more new stuff next year, I was forced to sell my equipment because of economic reasons.

I think this recording is from 2008 or 2009, never shared it before so I do now

Have any one tried the FiiO K1 ?

http://fiio.net/en/products/48


I am thinking about investing in one since the sound quality in my huawei mate 8 left a lot to be desired

It is ultra portable and affordable as well
if you have it what do you think about it ?
is there any other better alternatives I am open to try that too

Ever since Iphone 7 and their external dac and headphone amp there is more similiar but more powerful products around
I know HRT have one similiar to but what I know the k1 is better

http://cryochamber.bandcamp.com/album/nyarlathotep

A 190 minute dark soundscape album recorded by 25 ambient artists to pay tribute to H.P. Lovecraft.

Field recordings from the deepest dark corners of 4 continents. Dusty tapes out of forgotten archives. Strings through crackling amplifiers and distorted drone combine into a sea of pitch black.

Nyarlathotep is a manipulative being in the Lovecraftian Mythos. Unlike Cthulhu, or Azathoth, he delights in cruelty and deception. Causing madness is more important than destruction to him.
Smell the burning embers as you kneel outside the sunken temple before Nyarlathotep. Feel the raspy touch of the...  see more

Meshuggah's new Album is called "violent sleep of reason". Meshuggah have been my favorite artist since 2001.
Do we have any other Meshuggah fans here ?

The new album will be kind of different I think, to begin with they did record their album in denmark instead of themselves, it was recorded the old school way with only live takes..

It will be released 7th october so the wait is soon over!

tracklist

01. Clockworks
02. Born in Dissonance
03. Monstrocity
04. By the Ton
05. Violent Sleep of Reason
06. Ivory Tower
07. Stifled
08. Nostrum
09. Our Rage Won't Die
10. Into Decay
