It's probably to cover the cost of the extra labor. ;D

Thanks Forrest, I just ordered it. Yes, I am doing much better the last few days. This old body just  doesn't bounce back like it used to.  ;)

I didn't know Telomere had a new release out. I've always enjoyed his releases. Where is this available from, Forrest?

Nice work, Jeff. A live recording of AMBIcon? Now that would be nice.  8)

I can't recommend this enough. I know a lot of you (those who still have good hearing) prefer the FLAC format. Some really good music here. Of course, I am waiting for the new release with the refurbished Rhodes.  ;)

Hypnos News and Announcements / Sunyata/ Inner Landscapes
« on: March 18, 2013, 01:30:24 PM »
I received this Saturday, but due to having back surgery Friday I am just getting around to listening to it now. ( I have plenty of listening time on my hands now). First off this is a beautiful package.. The artwork and the digipack are stunning! I just finished listening to Inner Landscapes and was really impressed with this work. I can't wait to dig into Sunyata in a little while. It is reminiscent of Trances and Drones which is one of my, if not my favorite Robert Rich releases. I can't recommend this enough especially with the introductory price on it for a limited time. Great job Mike and Robert! As usual, Lena shipped it out really quickly arriving here just three days after I ordered it.

I just got this yesterday and am really enjoying it. I agree that the artwork is very good and fits with the music nicely. Great job Anthony and Thomas!

Actually, I was exaggerating when I said I knew who half of the people mentioned are.

I'm not sure what "hardcore addition" means , but the film looks interesting.

I believe its a lot longer then the normal version will be. It says four hours long over 2 DVDs. Looks interesting but I have to admit that I am disappointed that no one from our little circle of music was interviewed for this documentary. And some people I suspect are only on the doc because they are popular. Like deadmau5, there is a really funny video of him floating around where he confuses a filter with a vco.  ;D
I agree that I would have liked to see several others interviewed and I don't know who half the people mentioned are. It still looks interesting.  8)

I try to take a sort of zen approach to modulars, a patch is here one day and gone the next. You can literally start with a clean slate at any time.
Yes! That is one of the most frustrating and one of the most rewarding things about modulars.

Just from a quick look, I don't think there are going to be any changes as far as saving patches or programmability on the mini MS-20. I do remember the frustration in trying to recreate sounds on many of these older analog beasts. It was sometimes close to impossible to duplicate sounds on the EML101 and Synthi AKS that I had just gotten the day before back in college. That was one of the problems of having several people play with the same machines. Ah, the good old days.  ;)

It is exciting for me seeing all of the recent developments in analog synthesis. I hope it keeps up. I do regret selling various analog gear in recent years especially my CS50 And Prophet 5. I had the same problem Julio mentioned, parts hard to find and constant maintenance. I do wish I had kept them, though.  :(  The recent explosion of analog products is encouraging, what with the Tom Oberheim products coming soon and the 2nd wave of modular synthesis that I thought I would never see. The best part is the affordability! Even though many of these products are not cheap (Tom Oberheims SOFV) they are so much more affordable than like products were in the 1970's when I spent a lot of time drooling over modular, patchable and analog keyboards. Picking up an ARP 2600 in 1971 was like buying a new car, neither of which I could afford.

Excellent review, Jeffrey! I look forward to more in the future. I agree this is a very good release and is currently on my cd player quite a bit.

These fellas are right right. I've been at my day job for a few months short of 20 years, and at various times I've had completely different feelings about it. The biggest factor is your co-workers, particularly your immediate superiors and those with whom you work in very close proximity.
I agree. I can put up with a lot of negatives at work as long as the people I work with are compatible. It does make a difference.
