T.C. Electronic have several options for you:

The Nova reverb pedal looks great!
Glad to hear that Atmoworks will continue releasing great music!  Looking forward to the new web design JKN! 

BTW- Do you know what happened to - it appears to have been shut down...

I've always been fond of Industrient!
QuoteGreat deal because they have no development costs to consider so they can sell stuff super cheap, as all they do is rip off other companies designs.

I hear ya, but if they can get away with it and I can save a few bucks, I can't complain.  There is something to say about quality though.  Even though they rip others off, their overall product quality can't compare to the real stuff.
QuoteExplain to me how netlabels fit this "business model" exactly?  Netlabels give away the music, and sell... what?  How does the word "business" apply here?

Well, for my business model I am using netlabels to bring in listeners and help develop and foster new artists.  When the websites bring in a large amount of visitors, profits can be made off of advertising.  Using this source of income I plan to produce physical releases that hopefully a percentage of the monthly visitors will purchase.  So in a sense, I am giving away music to sell music.  I am also in the process of diversifying my 'genre' portfolio by creating new labels with new musical scopes.  This allows me to release more material in different genres, increasing the potential profits and profit income to fuel future physical releases.

Please note, I am not a big fan of advertising (Dark Winter has been ad-free for over 5 years) but if it will help me create physical releases I am on board with it.  I have been working on the best, cleanest, and non-obtrusive way to do this.

All great ideas!  You know, we are always looking for this type of material at a net.label dedicated to found sound and field recordings.  Check out for more information and free downloads.  We are in the process of ramping things up for 2007 so if you are interested in participating or releasing a project, please let us know!

I agree with you SunDummy, I don't think it can ever by stopped.  Being a publicly viewed forum, even this forum thread has more than likely introduced new leechers to the links at faunigena and in turn contributed to more illegal downloads!  That's why I am investing most of my time in net.labels.  Check out this link about the new business model:

Good catch!  They are 22" Widscreen monitors from Westinghouse.  They would not be the best for gaming, but for audio and graphics, they work great!  I bought some VESA pole mounts to attach them to the A frame.  The monitors can rotate 360 degrees if I wish but for my purposes, they sit as they are.

Thanks Paul!  The monitors are Behringer Truth B0231's.  Basically they are generic Mackie HR824's.  For $300, they are a great deal!

Hey Mike!

Things have been quite busy with me so it's been hard to keep up on the forums.  I have been reading the forums when I get some freetime.  I think I lost or misplaced my old ID when the upgrade occured so I created a new one.  Thanks for the welcome back!

I couldn't help but add to the great studio shots!

My studio is pretty minimal but very effective.  Keep the images coming!
