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

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.

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.

not sure what we can expect from this album, but I think we can expect maybe something a long the lines with steve roach albus with vir unis, with complex percussion. Anyway it looks like this album will be something special I hope so. I think it is good steve works with others too

korg is japanese I wonder what the price is in its home country if it is worth to import it maybe ?

I believe the computer where you are using the plugin does have to connect to the internet for the licence manager to licence the plugin.

I don't let my music computer taste the dubious wonders of the internet either, except when it has to verify or register something.

Well I think with the introduction of quad core processors that rule is less relevant today. I mean you can even run anti virus software on a DAW computer today. But I have a feeling most of you use apple products here anyway and apple people do not even use anti virus . Personally I never connect to the internet without it. You need to look at the dpc latency though if it cause spikes you have problems if dealing with low latency audio.

Personally I only have one computer so I do not have the luxury to have a special computer designed only for daw Stuff.


I am finally coming up for air after two months of being immersed in the final stages of two new releases, along with mapping out the sound flow into the Summer. Both new releases are now at the CD plant and in the digital download queue.

These two releases are each going to be special but very different statements. Full details coming soon. Biosonic and Second Nature on Projekt are collaborations with Robert Logan, a highly talented electronic artist based in London. We have been interfacing on this music for four years, and completed the projects together at The Timeroom in December. The story of this collaboration is rich, and the results are pushing high and deep into new dimensions; mind, body and soul-expanding music. Biosonic and Second Nature are coming in April. Stay tuned!

His release, "Towards the Blue Peninsula" is very good, I purchased that one through BC awhile ago but haven't haven't played it recently.

I never listen to full albums streaming like that on BC because the quality is so poor. It just helps me figure out if something is to my taste or not.

Well it is easy to forget when listening to BC about the quality but if you play side by side with your full quality version from your hdd the difference is really big.

All I can really say is make sure to not miss this is remarkable trust me...

Please try to find it i better quality though since bandcamp is on 128kbps for free users and sound kind of flat and 2d.

Did just listen to the Substrata album today first time in my new speakers and DAC I was totally blown away by its hypnotic quality.
It is a pure 5 star album from beginning to the end. It has this really strong cinematic quality much inspired from the Norwegian environment for sure.

Cirque  was really good too I did listen to it today, I would rate it 4.5

Well it is nice to go back to some old stuff to get som references and you realize that a lot of stuff today does not reach this high level.

This will be my mission today and go thu the biosphere albums, it was one of my first experiences with ambient and I think that was the case for many. Now days it is different cause ambient is was a smaller niche back then

I have watched this in its entirety a number of times since finding it on you tube and still not fed up of it, its a great video, I just wished he'd get rid of the laptop though.

He need the laptop since he use a lot midi  especially for his modulars and sequencers

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
