I had the chance to try the sennheiser 800,  it is nice to get more reference points.
They sounded very 3D something that can't be said about my DT880.

I think it is really good to have atleast two headphones that complete each other. In all honesty
it is very hard to have a headphone that have only strengths and no weaknesses.
For instance if you had the 3D sound in the DT880 you would most likely not have the very strong
instrument separation etc..

I am very interested in the AKG K812, they are quite new, but they have get amazing feedback so far..
the price is very expensive but I have only seen 5 star reviews so far...they are not comparable to the K701  and k702 series...

Regarding reference points, I have asked a store in stockholm to take in the Stax sr 009
Just for fun to listen to them, to get a new reference point,  this is supposed to be the best headphones in the world without any competition that comes even remotely close.  That only drawback with them what I have heard is that once you have heard them all other headphones you listen to will sound like total crap..  These are Electrostatic headphones which is very rare.

one thing that is needed to point out though.. when you are playing around with the Binaural and spatial plugs they tend to kill a lot of the sound information within the sound cool though but it can also kill a lot of the beautiful details and smooth things out... But yeah, it can be used as it's own sound painting better for some sounds then others...

I like Binaural  recordings but why not do the same of the original mix also ?
it works in speakers too the effect..even though not in the same way.

What software do you use ?

Have been looping this video quite a lot lately.  I wish I did live in germany so I could jam together like this with some friends and some berlin school stuff.

my girlfriend did recommend me American horror storry, among other series, but all was 2013 so no blurays..

American horror story seem to remind me a little bit of "grimm" though, and I could nost just stand that crap...
Well produced though but too silly for me.. with all those half-zombie half human creatures too much fantasy.

I like Zeitos too..really dark mood quite depressing The video fits perfectly with the mood.
The guitars that is added is great..

Who is the girl Jesse i stalking ?

Anyway..the video fits the music very well..give a quite sense of loneliness

Jesse is an old friend of mine btw..we do not have much contact anymore unfortunately

Everything and Nothing / Re: Digital Compact Camera - any advice?

Hey guys,

thanks a lot for your feedback!

@Julio: I tested serveral Canon cams and generally speaking i do like the quality…what puts me a bit off is the extremely "warm" (too much yellow) colors of them. Also it seems, that for jpg´s they use quite a heavy processing (adding a lot of contrast) and thats hard to get rid of later and i really won´t to bother with RAW.

@Immersion: I tested this and some other Samsung camera´s and really have a problem with the image quality. They are great to use for quick results and FB posts but it really seems like Samsung is better in other technologies than cameras.

@Pete: Thanks a lot for the detailed info! I have a Sony HX20 as a zoom camera and i do like it, but as you said image quality is not more than average. I use it when i´m on holiday and for that purpose it does shot good results. Thanks for the Ricoh tip…funny, just looked at my amazon account and realized it´s in my saved observing list  :) Shame it does´t have at last a small optical zoom and the macro option isn´t very advanced   :( I may give it a try and thanks amazon it´s easy to send it back if it´s not convincing.


I think samsung is good if you like saturated colors that just looks good, and no need for photoshop etc..
Well the 21x zoom is still really good though for being a compact camera..

To be honest you are on your own I have no deeper knowledge, cause there is simply too much on the market..
But you are desire for a compact camera definitely makes the choices be little less.

Also remember youtube quality is not the best but you can choose 1080p but there is still compression going on...

worth mentioning about the sony QX10 G.  Is that you you do do not need to have it attached to the phone as in the picture, you can actually hold in your hand,  the lens is streaming the content wireless through wifi.

it has 10x optical zoom which is really good.

oh and damn I forgot to mention the samsung smart camera with 21 X OPTICAL zoom
It is a compact camera when you the lens fully in.

I have tried it and the zoom is just incredible..

If you really want something compact but without compromise

you might consider, it comes in different sizes.  It will easily wit in your jacket
It works for most phones I think.

Don't look at this app as a musician's  tool or as a toy. This is a Steve Roach long-form atmospheric piece.

As opposed to a CD, you can adjust the mix & panning of the 5 stereo stems if you choose - or just pick a mix from the menu or let the parts randomly mix themselves. It's really just a different way to experience a long-form track - with the option to control the mix.

Another aspect to consider is that due to the crazy-low app pricing "standards" these cost only $3-$5 each (with no shipping costs) for a long track.

I just bought the new one yesterday and from limited listening, I think it's my fave from the series so far.

I think it is more fun for non-muscian actually.. personally I just do find myself want play around with that app just to merge some loops... but I can understand people who do it though...

does any one really use this ? :)
I never would :)

I did listen to "Spiral Meditations" today, what can I say, it sounded very mediocre to me...
The sound quality is not good, no depth, everything is just average, no magic...

I am still convinced it sounds good in steves studio, but it is to me clear he have made dramatic changes in is signal path...all sounds so much cheaper now a lot of the later releases...sad to hear...

Very.....came to these monitors from a Mastering setup that had lots of audiophile paraphernalia.  I wanted the full range listening capabilities that B&W 802's, my old speakers, within a smaller studio environment.  The Focal Twins delivered.

Nice, that you are satisfied, I would love to hear them.  I need more reference points, to compare with my HG3s, have not heard so many different monitors before, I have genlecs, and NS-10

I myself did go from a pair audio pro  HiFi speakers.
But for the price I paid for them I must say that sounded very good..
