I can really recommend this high quality performance.
It is really educational also too see what is going on behind the scenes when he create his magic.

I think Robert Rich would need more hands, he would be amazing as a duo for sure.

I think all the sounds with the Dave Smith Prophet synth does not sound very impressive.
Besides that his sequencing is very impressive and inspiring.

Does any one know what that modular system he have here cost ?

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Arjen Schat - Sonic identity
« on: February 23, 2016, 10:00:06 PM »

“Sonic Identity” is the eighteenth release on and marks as Arjen's fourth release in 2015 after “CrO2”, “Mens”, and the cassette release of “Sequentem”. Its emphasis on complex polyrhythmic sequencing and extended use of analog synthesizers characterizes a sonic identity that is true to Arjen Schat.

“Scalar Fields” was originally published on YouTube as “Final Sequence Of 2014”.
released August 9, 2015

I especially like the last song  Stellar Parallax

« on: February 23, 2016, 09:55:24 PM »
BLUE DREAM is all about nostalgia and mystery. Atmospheric music worthy of the great years of the “Berlin School Music”.
The sequencers and synthesizers are thus in perfect symbiosis for you to travel on a cosmic journey.

1. FLY OVER ME 33:23
2. THE APPROACH - Bonus-Track1 21:44
3. VIBRATIONS - Bonus-Track2 15:00

Total Time: 70:07

Can be heard in full on the bandcamp page, much recommended

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / korg minilogue how many are going to buy it ?
« on: February 03, 2016, 03:49:27 PM »
korg minilogue has a low price.. and I can only imagine the second hand value of this one..
I really want one on my desk right looks fun..and asalways it is when you add the effects you really
can really make magic with this should own every software synth at atleast..

This one will become a huge big seller because of the price and small form factor..and
we can expect more copy casts of similar products soon from more of the bigger companies.

yes, this can be explained by the steady stream of iLOK protected plugins in the recent month, digital slate...eventide yeah name it all of them..

People who have bought a license can now with good conscience use the cracked version since the cracked version is in some cases a better version ironically.
I think it is wrong ot punish the buyers in that way.  Copy protection is good but now when it has a big impact on performance and it involved a big percentage of the code of the plugins itself is just pure copy protection.

I think this re-release must be on of the best in history.
First of it is now finally in widescreen no longer in that unwatchable 4:3 format, also
it has been remastered so it looks better on todays bigger tvs.

I am currently on season 4 now.
I have never seen the full series just a few episodes here and there on tv when I was

The difference in quality is astronomical... they did a very good job at this.

It is like going from vhs to bluray

I have a problem with getting clicking, because of the nature of music is heavily processed with long reverbs and effects etc..
It is hard to get the correct volume level, especially since I do a lot of "cresendo stuff" which means I want a big dynamic range when I play soft or hard on the guitar string.

The solution number 1 would be lower the input level from my kemper amp to my eventide, but this has some serious artifacts I have noticed, the guitar now sounds very thin and not dynamic or powerful at all..however it takes away the click sounds..

It is really hard to get the volume levels right using long reverbs for guitar..
I notice such big difference when I lower input volume on my eventide  that I hope there is any better solution

I use no compressor

you can see my setup here

EDIT: I add a recording from my eventide H8000fw
you can hear for yourself, it is very frustarting..

Now Playing / Two ambient guitar recording of me
« on: January 05, 2016, 08:12:55 PM »
I have recorded this two guitar ambient recordings with my GNG guitar and Eventide H8000fw and an Antelope Eclipse clock.
There is no overdubs or anything all is in real time the only source here is guitar, the synth pad effect is the pitch shifting of the Eventide.

Me Playing guitar with my Eventide H8000FW

Download here:
(All is 100% eventide no other things are added all is done in real time using Processor B for the pitchshifting stuff (which sounds a lot like pads)
the Eventide h8000fw Cost me a lot of money (it is a lot more affordable in the states. But it is still without any doubt the best buy I have made in my life.  The satisfaction can't really be put in world and unfolds new dimensions to my music.

EDIT: I add one more Download here

I am very impressive by the reverbs and delays and pitchshifting and chorus.
I will keep this unit for a very long time.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Have any tried VIP
« on: December 01, 2015, 12:36:19 PM »
It seem that people do not realize its power and how it revolutionize integration with midi with you software.

I am waiting for january 2016 before I will buy my first midi keyboard with VIP software.
M-audio and Alesis, AKAI are currently the ones that will use VIP software. All 3 companies have the same owner so we will probably not see VIP on any other manufactures.

M-audio have promised a more premium version then the M-AUDIO Code which seem interesting considering the high quality of the code model. Hopefully they will announce it in January.

With the VIP software your midi keyboard will almost become like a hardware synth since you no longer need the computer to change presets or parameters you can control everything on the screen.  They use sospehtice chaching algoririms so switching between presets will be faster then the regular way in your DAW.
You can play mutiple VST synths in a same VIP preset.

VIP means total Checkmate to all other midi manufacture who do not use this software, novations auto map in comparision to this is a joke,  the latest Native instrument NATIVE KONTROL  standard is something similiar to VIP with it difference that it will only work with plugins that are released in the NKS format. VIP works with all software.

Really looking forward to try this myself in reality,for me personally it will work a lot better no need to stare at computer screen and use the mouse while you try put yourself in a musical trance.

I feel it be my obligation to inform you that since there is people here who make profit of dead people that this person "Sanjay Nadeem" is fake",
how some one could release something like this under fake name is really for beyond understand especially when the person is dead.

the label ARC has no permission at all to release his stuff, but even more importantly no permission to release remaster versions.

In ambient and drone there is no such thing as remaster, every slightly fine tune to the album is considering holy ground  and should not be altered without permission,  to release versions that they claim sound "superior" only show disrespect to the creator who in this case have no possible way to raise his opinion.
As I said there is no such thing as remastered this should be considered remixes. 

Do not buy or support these fake labels who make profit of dead people who release cds without permission.

Klaus would have no problem to give permission to release his cds, but to release under a fake label and altered non-orginal versions
he have given no permission for, this is just some one trying to make a profit of the dead in an non respectful way.

There is no "Sanjay Nadeem",
The label does not exist in india.
it is in fact a german based label run by Thomas Weiss  who release stuff
without Klaus's permission.
