Everything and Nothing / Re: itunes or no itunes

Bandcamp doesn't distribute your music to iTunes, etc. The way I understand it is that to be on iTunes, Spotify, etc is you need to sign up with a digital distributer, (Tunecore, etc,etc), and they will distribute your music to the various platforms. For this they charge you a per album fee per year I believe, the guys who are on those platforms will no more about this, or maybe other ways.
I apologise for the amount of times I have used "etc" in this post ;D

Hope everyone affected by the storms/hurricanes will be OK. Stay safe, you can replace gear/houses/cars etc but you can't replace yourself and loved ones.

Gathered here are the remaining tracks from all my previous cassette albums, "Unknown Territory", "Approaching the Light" and "Rainbows End". Also here you will find tracks that have appeared on the compilation albums, "Pathways of Illusions", "Zenith Sampler 2" and "UK Synthtasia Live 1992"
Its available as name your price download which if you enter 0, you will get it for free.
The music is in the general melodic, sequencer based style and not like my output as Phobos.
I hope you enjoy the resurfacing of these tracks from the early 90's.

The digipaks were printed by Discromatics

They were able to do just the packaging as I duplicate my own discs.
The photos were taken by my wife  ;).

Blackhole reverb is on sale again for $47, they are having a sale item every week in May

Digital Dance to me is probably one of their worst albums, I remember getting it when it first came out and being disappointed. Their earlier albums are their best IMHO. My personal favourites are Beam Scape and Night Light.
I wouldn't have classed them as Vapourware, I tended to think they were sort of modern Berlin School, at that time, using digital instruments to provide teutonic soundscapes. For me they went off the boil after Syn Code.
And yes the saxophone is bloody terrible!

Software/ Mergener and Weisser are now on Bandcamp, all their releases are now available as downloads and some on vinyl.
Good to see these available again as a lot of their CD releases are very hard to find, or are priced at at silly figures at Discogs.

Glaceverb and Ambience are solid freeware reverbs.
I can't get Glaceverb to work on my new windows 10 computer - any tips or clues as it has some very nice sounds and is very easy to tweak

I use it on my 64bit Windows 8.1 computer just fine, but I also use it within a 32 bit program. I'm getting a Windows 10 laptop soon so I'll have to try that one for myself.

Glaceverb works on my 64 bit Windows 7 computer fine in the 64 bit version of Cubase, but Cubase has built in bridging for 32 bit plugins, not sure how many other DAWs have this feature.

Glaceverb is 32 bit and your Windows 10 computer will be 64 bit, so you may need bridging software to get it to work

Just wanted to say it is great to read discussions talking about musicians I know nothing about - don't stop talking....

Mathias Grassow does have a huge discography - two of my favourites are Dissolution (very dense music) and True North with Amiri Baghiri.
you may also like Upuaut (with Oophoi and Baghiri), Sphere, Space and Eclipse.


I'll have to check those out. Oophoi is another one whose huge discography is something I've only scratched the surface of. I do have Upuaut and like that one quite a bit.
Yes Oophoi has a large discography - Athlit is highly recommended as well as the Dreams set and The Dreaming of Shells for a good start.

I must also also add Celestial Geometries and Signals From The Great Beyond to the list of Oophoi discs to check out. In my opinion these are essential recordings to have in anyones collection

I recall a time when loading a relatively small quantity of samples into the sampler could take longer than an hour.  I don't miss that at all.

Ah yes, it was a good excuse to go and make a cup of tea, several even!   ;D

Kontakt is my main sampler.  I sold my hardware samplers because of Kontakt.  I use Absynth, Pro53 and FM8 occasionally.  I still prefer hardware synths and have more than a few of them.

I probably won't upgrade Reaktor until I've stretched the limits of version 5.  That will take a while.  So maybe the next upgrade will be Reaktor 7 or 8?   

Kontakt is an amazing piece of kit, so many ways to make new sounds. Been using it for many years and still discover new things to do with it. Like yourself I also sold my hardware samplers (Akai S5000 x2) because of Kontakt, although recently I have bought an Akai Z8, mainly because I want to build up my hardware equipment again, but also as a backup, just in case!
