Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Alesis Andromeda A6 FS

does the A6 have any kind of unofficial software editor controlled with midi? from what I have heard
it is kind of pain in the ass to program

Yes as we all know it's much easier to program a synth that has something like 70 knobs and just as many buttons with a large LCD screen on a computer with only a mouse.   ;D ;)

If the interview have better overview, less sub menus and less multi function buttons etc a software interface to get a good overview would be desirable for sure..  That small LCD display you probably need big glasses to see the text.

Hahahaha

Oh yes indeed, those 70 knobs are just a pain in the ass….the designer of the A6 is obviously a complete idiot  ;D

But thanks god there is at last an "official hope" for Ekstasis to cope with this huge hardware problem:

www.midiquest.com


You can never have too many knobs, it is good for real time modulation expressions. But to program the Andromeda is painful as far as I know, to many multi function button and sub menus, to have a software interface to get a better overview would had been desireable.

The designer of the A6 was obviously not a complete idiot since he have manage to create one of the most unique sounding synth ever...but it has its compromises for sure.

I like lossless, but I refuse to play the music through the web browser I want to use my sound player ulilith. I have tried most of them this player is without doubt the bets sonic sound quality I refuse to listen to music in any other way. Lossless is really only "lossless" for me with ulilith..

it is kind of pain in the ass to program.. but yeah...very distinctive sound..something I can't do with software synths for sure... I need enormous amount of processing to get similar character...

Just giving this a quick listen at work - enjoying it. Will try to burn to CD and giver it more attention later.

Thank you for your motivating feedback! Hope you like it. If I had the midi saved I would probably remove some of the percussive sounds in the first minute but it is "ok" .. I should be better to save midi files... I never do.for some reason..I guess I do with stuff I have spend more times with but almost all my recordings are just live recordings..

I am little bit against adding visuals to ambient music... it will change the way you perceive the music it will also fill in possible "void" that maybe the music is lacking.. in some cases the music is not good on its on but with added visuals it gets more stimulating.. I still think ambient music should be percived with headphones on in bed at night..with no external stimuli....

There is few exceptions ... http://www.cobaltsun.net/dvds/index.html
This visuals I think is in perfect harmony with the music on the "brain wave" level.. I have never tried a viritual headset myself..samsung just released a VR set for their Galaxy note 4... I am pretty sure this dvd would immersie my mind totally with a the VR headset would be interesting to experience...

But in most cases on youtube there is just majestic visuals added to mediocre music to add a 3rd dimension to enhance the music. But you will just notice the lack of substance in the music with the visuals are turned off.. in my opinion it is just a cheap trick to trick our minds... I think a of commercial labels without mention names use visuals to in advertising purpose to make the music more intersting then what it really is.. where the visuals gives substance to the music.. the ambient music experience should be a reflection of your on mind and let your own mind create the inner pictures.atleast for me this is what gives ambient music any substance at all...the essence in the music is where the music takes my mind...  Adding visuals in youtube videos does rearly reflect what the pictures my mind is creating...it might gives me wrong atmosphere and colors.. it gives me on wrong track..
I think the artist should be careful with adding visuals and select artwork carefully..  a lot of ambient artists have majestic and professional photographs on the cd cover, but does not reflect the music, feels in many cases it is just there to give the album "attention"..

Are you looking for constructive criticism / feedback of these pieces ? I presume that's why they were posted here.

Yes of course.

38
The part 2 is great too. Both have a very deep feeling. I just wished that the second one didn't end so abruptly.

thank you I agree I did cut it too fast.

I am surprised how much I did agree with Sam.  Has he shifted opinions?  I am remembering being more old school and conservativ.  Anyway to my surprise i agree with him,  I did already raise the merchandise question recently in an other thread,  it is a good way to gain some money if you do Some nice merchandise with nice design and print.  I would love more ambient shirts.

I own the Steve roach  a deeper silence the shir,  it was  nice but it  starting to become washed out now

part 2 link has now been updated with the correct mix.
