Ekstasis:: Yep, you are right, Lush is a very fine synth, looks great too. I've owned it for a few years. Great for layering and also for rhythmic/arp things.

Another fine sounding newer VA synth is the xils PolyKB. You might like this one. Just came out with v2. I'm tempted.




Video is of the earlier version.

I am glad you like the lush synth. I agree it a very good looking synth, I think D16 does probably the most realistic looking plugins, they look fucking awesome.

I tried the xils PolyKB, but never version 2.  From what I rember it was buggy the first one ?

Recorded in 2008. Would sound good with some Berlin school sequencer.  If someone own a  sequencer feel free or add my track.  Would be very happy to hear.

I uploaded my track on soundcloud, it sounds like crap there, I thought soundcloud had good sound, but it sounds really bad, it sounds like 128kbps or something.

https://soundcloud.com/solyaris84/ekstasis-drifting-in-lost-time

Soundcloud is 128k. 

If you want better quality, try the new service called Orfium.  320k stream.  Embedable player.  It's free to use.

https://www.orfium.com/

128kbps is such a big joke what is this is this 1999 or something lol ?
when I did begin to listen to mp3s between 1997-and 1999 128kbps was the standard then in 2000  all mp3s become 192 kbps, around 2003 all albums started using VBR.

Why cant they atleast use VBR ?  128 kbps cbr is such insult to the music imo.
I think their neat interface where you see the soundwaves in details etc gives an illussion that soundcloud somehow offer better
sound quality then all others.

Regarding orfium, it have no android app, or even IOS app, I think most people use soundcloud thru respective mobile app.

Might as well buy the software and map a controller to it, lot cheaper than the hardware and sounds the same !

Doing a fast google search it seem that this one is the best VA VST right  I Will give a try, hopefully cpu usage is not horrible.
One of my other favorite vst synth is d16 lush 101, have you tried that one APK ?

listening to your music I think it would fit your "smooth and panoramic soundscape.
It is one of the best synth for ambient I think, (only sounds good when you switch the highest quality mode). It did eat up my cpu before but they released a multicore optimization which made extreme improvement.

That is one good album, but listening to ambient is sad it is total destruction of audio. I feel bad of people growing up today, with bad audio quality everywhere.



The unfortunate thing is a large percentage of young people don't buy music and don't know what good audio quality is.

     

That is what I am talking about, commercial services do not care about sound quality, they are care about cost and bandwidth, and young people today just want it easy, preferably they do not even want to choose what they listen to their self but let spotify and others decide, based on algoritms and what their friends listen too.

Thom Brennan - Mist



Superb Ambient drone.  A little New Agey at times, but certainly not New Age.  It's the only TB album I have and it won't be the last.

Glad to read your review.

I don't really understand how the cancelation works. When I flip the switch, like you, my sense is that the volume increases by a notch, which seems like a "trick" for improving the signal rather than true cancelation.  Regardless, they sound good either way. So this is more of my skepticism shining through rather than a genuine complaint about the headphones.

well I wish they would lower the volume one step when you activate the ANC, when I A/B I do press both one volume step down and anc button at the same time to hear the difference. In most cases, it will sound better with ANC, but the ANC will make it more warm sounding, some music can benifit from that "saturation" so what you simply have is a choice when to use it or not even when listen in silent room.  the ANC will only work in specific scenarios it is not as good as sealed headphones, but for constant noise, it can be.

Open ANC phones is still to prefer if you care about your ears, these phones will create less sound pressure then typical sealed IEMs.
this is a good thing, it is a big strain on the ear otherwise.  The Jumpers should be a lot thicker, it would make it more comofortable to have in your ear.
The comfort is not very high, but I think maybe my ears will get less sensitive to have those jumpers pushing in the ear after some time maybe.

Steve Roach & Loren Nerell - Texture Wall

This is really unbelievable how good this is, totally takes over my mind and subconscious really really deep hypnotizing music in fact one of the deepest mind trip albums I got, the sound quality is really top notch, this is drone ambient in the highest order, I also like the whole microcomismic pressence on the album, these grasshopper sounds almost alien but still hypnotizing if you listen close to it, it could sound like an advanced modular patch too with looping,  always nice to come back to steve roach album between 1999-2007 era, they sound so good, it is truly timeless music here that never gets old, and it maintain to be the most important music on an existential level for me.

What can possibly be the point of posting an image that big !!!???
It's too big to see !

I was going to ask how the heck you can fit those in your ears - but now you've spoiled it!   ;D

Aa I said I earlier my ears are more or less to small for sealed iems unless it is micro drivers or molded iems.

Since these am185 is open non sealing headphones they do not need to be far into your ear channel .  I am really glad to say they fit my ears!

Regarding sound quality. I should not give any judgment before a week or so because  of possible break on period.
But I have been listening to early man and serpents lair by Steve roach.  Both albums sound very big and wide in the headphones.

I have not tried the anc  so much  only at home in silence.

When anc is activated you get 1 db boost in sound and a mild "tape saturation"  slower but louder transients less detailed  transients, little bit softer sound, little  bit louder  and more highs but soft treble. On guitars this tape saturation effect can make it more easy and pleasing to the ear.  Anc off feels more deeper and detailed and dynamic sound,  while anc makes it little bit louder but little bit less dynamic since the anc itself add a mild noise floor with white noise (like playing on tape) .  Using the on and off Switch work very fast and easy.  The sound overall is very balanced.  Not too much bass not too much Highs  and good midrange.
Soundstage feels wide.

The reviews was right it is a hidden gem  but in fact in the anc category ut said to even surpass the base model which cost like 300 dollars and others that cost 400.
So yes this was a good buy.  You get them for free if with they huawei mate 9 pro  smartphone I bought then from a guy in a forum for 450 swisha kronor

I use Huawei  mate 8  smartphone so I do not need to worry about charging it externally I do it while listening,  this is only  possible it you use a huawei phone otherwise you have to charge  them via USB externally  which would suck indeed.

I took with smartphone, the site should resize to fit the the screen. Maybe you should consider to update to something more mordern with responsive design like the xenforo plattform ? it is the best one for forums imo, and adaps well depending on the device it use (and it will resize picture according the canvas of the site).

No problems remind me of the car drive scene in solyaris or a Bela tarr movie anyway.  I really need to take a listen on all your albums.  If I should buy one album from you which would you recommend the most? ;)

I couldn't bear the repetition of anything musical - it would have to be silence, or the sea.

Pete I also couldn't bear it. Imagine the Cage piece in repetition and then every minute this ping sound. I would go mad about it. Nature is of course the best entertainment ever. But from time to time some electronic music is just fine. I really would miss my synth sounds.

:)

Yes I agree with you.
Maybe a cd with rain sound? 
I love rain it makes me harmonic inside.
