I can really recommend Better Call saul for breaking bad addicts. many of the casts from breaking bad is in this series, same directors same incredible quality it is just as addictive as breaking bad.

well I can see it is very well made and beautiful for the eye, but it similiar to lord of the rings I would find the story and the acting in general silly but I would watch it just for being impressed by the general visual performance and production in general.

Well maybe I will get into the fantasy world after some time otherwise  fantasy is really not my strong side.
But Trailers does note always give the correct picture...

Still need to let biosonic grow some.

But I did give second nature a good chance listening to it in headphones in bed giving it full attention  (which people rarely do these days)

My conclusion is it is a bad uninspired and boring album.
It is elevator music at best.  The piano sound cliché to me.  Piano and long reverbs like that rarely work.

All sounds very spontaneous  and lacks depth and multiple layers.  With that said all new Steve roach albums are welcome. It is good his discography grow since you need new albums since you want some new music to listen to all the time and you have heard all albums sp many times now.

Will give finial judgment to biosonic soon

Biosonic grows a little... the track "Amniotic Universe " is kind of hypnotizing

25
I think hypnos did not deserve the bash.. Hypnos.com was a cd based label it is no news that cd sales has gone down and time has changed.  Anyway I agree with you regarding Thomas 100%

26
I have heard both albums now I am not sure what to make out of it yet.

Will need to listen to them some more

I have recently started to watch this series I think it is really good an raises some interesting questions about the future.



IT must be really hard acting to act like a non human like that :)

but I know sometimes trailers does not give the correct picture

Art and Literature, Movies and TV / Stargate SG-1 reunion ?
« on: April 03, 2016, 07:46:30 PM »
So lets start of and say, I am a huge stargate fan.

My first experience with Stargate was  Stargate universe,  I was amzed by it, then I started with atlantis I was very scerptical at first since I thought it was some kind of low budget tv crap,  well..atlantis was also mindblowing.. I was even more sceptic when starting to watch SG-1 after surviving first season sg-1 was really mind blowing as well..

Anyway there has been rumours about a sg-1 reunion now , do any of you guys think that sg-1 reunion will see the light of day ?

It is unclear if it will be a series or a movie...is any one else more well informed perhaps of the latest rumors ?

Anyway we need more good sci fi series like this

well what I ca say about this film is it is extremely high quality film, it is really flawless,

The storytelling is kind of slow, but in a good way, however, the biggest and only problem with this film is that it is way too short.
Why I appreciate the slow story telling in the beginning the end suffers a lot,  this should had been an epic 3 hour film nothing less...

Otherwise this is space drama in its highest caliber.  I really love space movies like this. Movies like Prometheus  etc.

I got a bit of a nostalgia buzz watching the first episode of the new miniseries. But, after the second episode, I didn't have any incentive to continue watching. I can't quite put my finger on it, but things just seemed contrived and silly.

Sometimes it seem they just standed there doing nothing all to grab money from all the million fans etc...
it seem almost like a rip off.

I think directors and maybe time frame and economy is to blame  something went very wrong with this mini series it is not up to standards.
But it has moments of greatness it is very uneven. Well this was a sad reunion.

If they ever decide to do another season I will still give it a chance though but I think a lot of this stuff should never have aired...
There must be some kind of quality control of the material they have before air it ?

I have now seen the 10th season mini series, I must say it was surprisingly bad.

I think drone did sumurize it in a good way the last and first episode (directed by chris carter) was the most watchable.

I think we can't really blame mulder and scully for bad acting, but I think the directors and also the script is to blame, it is especially in 2-4 episode horrible.
Episode 2,3,4 was a joke, it felt like those episodes where trying to make a parody of x files,  mulder even had the xfiles ring tone in his smartphone wtf ?
Yeah this is really terrible ,after watching all 9 seasons recently there is a lot of really terrible episodes, but what we see here is actually bad acting,
and again I think it is directors to blame cause some scenes the acting is good and some not, it looks like they had a tight budget to be honest.

They could skip episode 2,3,4 all together they where just plain silly and feelt like they just wanted to make fun of x-files.

I think with better directing and script mulder and scully are still able to deliver for sure, since you see some bright moments especially in last episode,

1-4 epsiode felt much like warm-up phase, like they did not felt completely  comfortable in their clothes yet.

I also strongly prefer to UFO themed epiosodes in fact they could release an Bluray box with only the UFO related episodes, there is so many crap epsiodes in the series, a lot of silly monster and panorama silly stuff the UFO conspiracy episodes I think is what most people like, atleast that is what the hardcore fans want to see.

The ending of Episode 6 in the new series lay a good ground for new series...If they decide to do more episodes they really need to change things...
Atleast directors who can decide what is a good and not good take to begin with, it felt like in this series that they just took the first take and did go to the next. The acting and script is so bad sometimes.. very uneven quality.... But last episodes show some hope..but both still feels little bit rigid.


33
I have now finally wathched all 9 seaons, it took a lot longer time then I thought but it is because every season was like 22 episodes, on todays standard
that is kind of a lot.

Looking forward to start watching season 10 tonight!
I hope scully still looks hot

Experiencing "Puja"... A thrillingly transcendental journey through Indo-Gangetic Plains and Tibetan Plateau awaits here!!! David Parsons returns at the very top of his extraordinary wizardry, bravo, Maestro!!! Still in the middle of the pilgrimage, but it sounds already as a very strong competitor for Best of 2016. Thank you, David, thank you, Johan/gterma!!!

Wow I am not really excited to hear the album  :)

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: The Modular Synthesizer Thread
« on: March 27, 2016, 10:22:21 PM »
one thing I wonder about this oceanic amount of modules, is does it sound as good as it looks ?
sure it is analog, but a lot of this module companies are pretty much made by people in the garage,
sure a lot have good functions , but it seem to be a lot about the eye candy stuff too..

Anyway I will jump on the modular train before I die to, but it is little bit too expensive for me right now.


36
it is a great album, I made a thread up it, you can post your review there :)

37
I bought mine just in time. Cant find them in my part of Canada now either.
Really grown to like it a lot.

Yes I saw most music stores in my country had them in stock but after like a few weeks all was gone.
I think it has sold very well globally and I think even more so in Japan there home country there is a lot of loyal korg people there.
I think this has been a huge success for Korg. They have made so much right with it, but the success
is mostly based on on the low price and good value. I hope the price will not go up.

yes If you wanted to buy one you had to act fast, I was very close to buy one but I had no panic or rush I mainly wanted it for the summer maybe the price did go down a little bit too I thought.

A big thanks for bringing up this, David Parsson is among my favorites, he usually produce very high quality analog sounding ambient/drone stuff.
 

39
Not to be rude or something but I have put this thread little bit to rest, I need ot research "gain staging" more in debt  especially when reverb is added.
The is one good thing with analog that it can sound good when you crank up the volume high with digital you need to be really careful about the levels to avoid ugly digital artifacts.

Korg Minilougue is currently totally sold out in EU new stock date is in about 2 months.
I guess Korg was not prepared for it.
