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...

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..

$345....and the Focals are up against tough competition from my Grado SR325.  I love these cans but they are open backed

I was more talking about the speakers my friend, cause you got the speakers too also right ? :)

I love Terraform too. It's easily one of my favorite Roach collaborations.

Yes, I remember listening to that album in South Africa when I was there...
it was so perfect.. at night to listen to it...¨

Thanks for the complement. I would love to do another project with Steve, its really up to him if/when he wants to do it. Speaking of collaborations Steve has a new album that he did with Kelly David coming out soon. My next release is an album that I did with Mark Seelig, not the deep ambient album you requested though. It will probably be out this summer.

I was just thinking about it this morning when I was listening to your album Taksu. Well I really hope so I think Terraform is probably one of the most creative albums he have done, little bit unexpected from him.
But I guess both of you are very happy with the album. But listening to your albums it gets quite clear that terraform was about 50/50 effort.

Anyway always nice with more releases from you.

Looking forward for the album with david, I guess it will be an sequencer based album.

I really hope they will do a album again, their sounds did merge so perfectly, and they did produce one of the most deepest album ever the Terraform album...

Indulging myself this christmas, that and I need a closed back headphone for recording purpose.  Im led to believe these cans translate well with my Focal Twin monitors.  Would be really handy. Lets see.






Happy Christmas from



what did you pay for those ?

Anybody still craving Beyerdynamic T1 headphones will find them for $949 on Amazon today.


I really want those.. but I hope the price will drop... I have their DT1350 headphones it also have tesla...

if I buy the T1 I hope it will match the Phonitor 2 I am waiting for the remview..but if the sound quality is drasticially better I will most likely buy it...I Hope it will be a good "universal" headphone amplifier that fits most headphones

Western Digital makes (not pocket sized) small 1T USB3 hard drives which you could fill up and leave at work.
They're fantastic for throwing in your suitcase when you go to work on music at someone else's studio too.

Well I do not trust keeping my hdd at work unfortunately, and hdds are not made for too much moving all the time..they will eventually fail...well..my 64 GB flash memory will be ok...for a while... but I would really really prefer a internet radio..I might just stick with the soma fm still cause I will probably only be able to handle the hassel one time to fill the memory.  I do not have as much big music libary on the computer as I had before unfortunately.  Cause I am trying to have as small amount of hdds as possible since their sound makes my brain bleed I hate it.. I live in a small apartment too so you never get free from it.

Dagaz was a quite good album I rated it 4 of 5 stars.

The recoils are awesome. I was initially skeptical thinking it would be like most audiophile snake oil products...but the difference was immediate in terms of bass response and balance.

Although I have not heard them the IsoAcoustics stands seam to be really great too. I have 3 or friends using them.

Paul

Well it is no secret really that monitor stands can have a big impact... That is why I did buy my Towersonic Monitor stands.

I was also recommended the isoacoustics at first, but to me their construction did not feel rigid enough but I guess it is... maybe my HG3 monitors are too big for them I do not know... They have a good value, but I do not think they are beautiful...

Streaming radio is generally 128kb for MP3 and 96kb (thereabouts) for AAC. It's very rare to find stations that broadcast at 160 or 192, let alone 320. You're just going to have to bring your CDs and FLACs to work.  ;)

That is sad to hear, I would wish for mvbr, but maybe that is not even possible for mp3 streaming.
Drone Zone uses the AAC format.  I use atleast asio4all and xmplay with asio it makes it sound better for sure.

I guess I will have to take a usb stick with me to work with all Thom Brennan albums (it is good music for work).
I have a 64 GB usb stick.

I find 'The Magnificent Void' is my choice of Steve's releases for these sort of experiences

The ending sound Altus is among is absolute best..if not the best.

I like to listen to ambient at work, I like Drone zone with soma.fm but but the problem is that bit rate is too low..
Is there any ambient channels with better sound quality ?

I bring my DT1350 headphones and Go Vibe V7 headphone amp to work.
