Now Playing / Re: Two ambient guitar recording of me
« on: January 06, 2016, 05:05:30 PM »
I liked 'ambient_guitar' - the playing and the FX. It was nicely ethereal / melancholic. I have to say though I wouldn't have said the FX were remarkable, I'm sure Valhalla's Ubermod could create some similiar textures.

I was less keen on the pitch shifted sound of 'the_last_human_on_earth', as it's a sound that we hear a fair bit in the world of ambient.


Hello thanks for feedback, regarding the first ambient guitar, I can agree that the sound is nothing particular mostly because the reason I used a lot of wet signal so you do not hear the transparency, but it has a good mood.  For this song and lack of transparency ubermod could create something similar.

The pitchshifted effect is in real time, I only have two hands, so when I play guitar it does really help to have a synth like sound to play with when I improvise, with some after processing I am sure I could make it sound more "finished" and and more "diverse" , so it is a good "skeleton" work with

the second song is actually not pure ambient it is the skeltons for a project of mine which will include drums and bass instrumentation too, but because of the big amount of mesmeizing reverb it is still very much in ambient territory

Well the artwork is maybe not the best in world history. but it is just a b side release.
Jokes a side I think this album contains some good material but it is mostly brokehius drumming that destroys a lot of tracks I think that is one of the main reason why many of the songs have been ditched before

I think these tracks on the release is really strong.

Now Playing / Two ambient guitar recording of me
« on: January 05, 2016, 08:12:55 PM »
I have recorded this two guitar ambient recordings with my GNG guitar and Eventide H8000fw and an Antelope Eclipse clock.
There is no overdubs or anything all is in real time the only source here is guitar, the synth pad effect is the pitch shifting of the Eventide.

Me Playing guitar with my Eventide H8000FW

Download here: http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/5eyarokj1g/the_last_human_on_earth.mp3
(All is 100% eventide no other things are added all is done in real time using Processor B for the pitchshifting stuff (which sounds a lot like pads)
the Eventide h8000fw Cost me a lot of money (it is a lot more affordable in the states. But it is still without any doubt the best buy I have made in my life.  The satisfaction can't really be put in world and unfolds new dimensions to my music.

EDIT: I add one more Download here  http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/13kuntkkg4/ambient_guitar.mp3

I am very impressive by the reverbs and delays and pitchshifting and chorus.
I will keep this unit for a very long time.

You just admitted the tapes were given to Tomas!  Then what's the argument?

I suppose then Dennis Knopper of Databloem is evil too for remastering the Oophoi catalog with new artwork and "making money off a dead man"??

I don't see anyone criticizing him.  Why are you so angry and obsessed about this topic?  I can't figure it out.  I said the same to you in our private messages.

You must really don't give a fuck about Klaus Wiese, it is not remastering it is remixed since the difference is to big, new art work for no reason, the new artwork have a totally different atmosphere.
And this Sanjay is made up person, to person who care about Klaus Wiese it makes you boil inside when you read their label information and the story of this sanjay that does not exist, do you really think this is a respectful way to treat Klaus ?
This does prove that the owners of this label does not give the slighest about klaus and to honor him in a respectful way, all they want is to get away from their responsibility and legal rights to release the material.

As I did mention, when Klaus was alive there was only 2 people who had access to the orginal DAT tapes that Klaus left behind, in other words Klaus has more or less give Permission for this source to use this material. Thomas got access to the DAT tapes
because he and the source did work together and was on the same label at the time, now they have gone seperate ways, while thomas took the DAT tapes with him and now release the stuff. The Source did never give thomas permission to release the remixed versions of the DAT tapes or any dat tapes at all, those where given for private use.

The DAT tapes was given to the source by Klaus himself after over 20 years of friendship.
If some one have permission to release the material non-comercially it should be in.
I suggest archives.org  to use as a plattform this will ensure that the music will still stay up there for generations to come.

Same goes with Mathias Grassow - Himavat (2015 Special Edition), he have no permission to release this cd, grassow have never approved the remixed version either, from what I have heard Thomas released this cd anyway and ignored all emails telling him to not release because he had no permission to do so, this proves once again about Thomas personality here, totally respect-less individual, in this is reflected in both his business method I know a few people on the forum who have been the victim of his business methods (without mention any name), his rude and respect-less personality is also reflected in his constant rude and sarcastic posts.

Wooow! This is now way too much and I can´t stand anymore to be on Hypnos forum if this and similar defamation posts will remain visible.

Who are you to know about all my contracts I have with ANY artist and labels I´ve worked in the past? So finally, where´s your legal proof for all your accusations?

Where is the legal documents and the legal proof of Sanjay Nadeem ?
What is the post address to Sanjay Nadeem so we can send a "label related" inquiry ?

What is the point of this post ? I don't see what purpose it is serving at all.

If it is character assassination (and I don't know any of the purported 'facts' one way or another), it's pretty serious.
If there is something in what 'Ekstasis' is claiming, why post it on a public forum, anyway ?

I do not care about Thomas, the only thing I care about is to Honor Klaus Wiese and make sure he artistic work does not come in hands in "opportunists" who want to make their own artistic career thru him thru new mastering/remixes of the original albums to new art work.

Coming up with this "sanjay" charchter just to have an "anomouus" stamp on the label and person with final responsibility is disrespectful even so more the made up story of "sanjay and klaus" so called "meetings" in 80s. Shows no respect at all to make a label made of lies.

I have got many Private messages and there is a silent agreement here no one believe this sanjay bullshit, too many things to add up to that conclusion

Klaus deserves batter then this, and right now there is only two people in the world who have the original tapes, they where meant to be in only one hands and it was a mistake to give them to Thomas that is what my source has told me he regret that deeply considering in what disrespectful ways he is using this content now.

The name Garage band give such bad vibes about a audio program they really need to change that :)

Anyway Reaper is probably a better choice...

I dont know....Garage Band or Reaper as in Grim....I'll take my chances with GB  ;D

I have never claimed that Reaper is a good name either. In fact it is kind of terrible but Garage band is worse.

I don't know, guys, this is my final post on this topic.  I will end with this:

Tomas Weiss knew as a friend and  supported Klaus Wiese and his music.  So did Gigi (Oophoi) who sold lots of special KW music not available in shops or elsewhere online.  It's sad a lot of KW music has disappeared from availability now.  I think the accusation "making money from a dead man" is really cynical.  I see it more as a tribute in keeping the music alive.  Unless family members are really protesting selling CDs or there is a legal injunction, I don't see the harm in producing albums the fans will greatly enjoy.  How much money is being made?  Not a lot, I think.  It's all about the music, for me at least.  Sanjay or not, the music should live on.

Well I am not sure if your account have been hacked or whatever, but it does not really go hand in hand with your previous posts.

Regarding "I guess I'm obsessive when it comes to sound quality of CD pressings.  I've spent countless hours on the Steve Hoffman forums, where posters debate the various versions to the point of insanity.  Lately I've noticed how superior the sound is on the early Japan issues.  Case in point is the Pink Floyd material from the early 70s like Meddle and Dark Side of the Moon.  Last night I bought a 1984 japan issue of DSOTM  for $7.95.  It's by far the best I've heard compared to many versions I've heard previously.  I know collectors are big on these.  Anyone know why the Japan quality is seemingly superior?    "

obviously after reading this post of your I understand your sensitivity in the matter when it comes to sound quality.

Some facts I need to remind you off.

1. The ARC releases are remixed versions of the original (compare remixed version with different cd pressing the difference is night and day in that case)
2. They have no permission to release Remixed versions, it is disrespectful to the artist.
3. They have no permission to change artwork from the original it is disrespectful.
4. Shows disrespect to make a label based on lies and write a made up story about klaus and sanjay.

If Thomas and ARC would really like to make a tribute to Klaus they would not modify and remix the albums and do not modify the artwork.
Keep it original to archive his music into the history as it should intended.

ARC label is no tribute to Klaus Wiese,  ARC label is first made of commercial interest. considering the big catalog and the many collectors.
Thomas Want to use dead man's work to make his own "mastering engineer"  career, look on discogs he want to have his name as many albums as possible for his own selfish and egocentric desire, the same is the reason of the new artwork same here, people are trying to do an artistic career thru dead man's artist. Klaus cannot express his opinion regarding the new artworks or the remixed version of the album.

If they really want to make a tribute to Klaus Wiese and to make his music live forever to make it part of musical history without making money on it would be to upload his whole discography to https://archive.org .

https://archive.org/about/

The purpose of this site match the purpose exactly of what we all seem to want, which is to make Klaus music available forever.  The question is
what is needed in legal ways to upload his whole discography to archive.org and what the legal rules are for dead artists and who decide/approve.

Both screens above are the same.  This proves nothing.   I checked Discogs and Jesse Harrison is still credited.  Why would you check the Discogs profile right after you posted?  You're saying the label re-did the album's profile based on your forum post?

This seems very paranoid. 

I'm not on anyone's "side" here but if this issue was being tried in a US court the prosecution wouldn't have jack shit for a case.

I wanted to check discogs because of many of the albums there are more information such as albums notes etc..
it turned out they where the same as in your physical copy.

I posted the posted stated regarding "artwork made in india" that this Jesse is not from india he is from Finland but lives in UK.
After I posted the discogs links they took away jesse harrison from "artwork" and put "arc music ltd" as artwork.

They forgot to change back one of them as you see the one on discogs and the screen I posted does not match.

http://www.discogs.com/Klaus-Wiese-Ming-Noir/release/5781815

(I post screen in case they will modify the profile again
http://i.imgur.com/i659jFx.png)

They seem to want to  cover up the fact that the artwork was made by jesse, because the notes says " art work made in india"
Yet I told you all he lives in UK.
That they change the profile right after I made my post with the discogs links to prove my point and that they monitor this thread closely.
All I can say is it is  "suspicious" and "strange"

Well if you one plus 1 one together you realize it all make more sense.

why do they find it so important to write in the notes "covers made in India"
? as you said the covers where not made in india.

"Since we also do this with the Inera label from Ireland, we are happy to announce that we have worked out an agreement with the label managers, Brian (Inera) and Sanjay (Arc), to manufacture the discs for both labels in Ireland. This option improves the logistics of working with both labels, allowing us to efficiently handle disc imports and ensure their availability in our shop."

"el culto exclusively distributes all Inera releases worldwide. As we do the same with the Arc label from India, we have agreed with Brian to manufacture the discs for both labels in Ireland. This option allows us to improve the logistics of working with both labels, allowing us to efficiently handle disc imports and ensure their availability in our shop."

I posted the screens becase 5 minutes after I made the post

I had a cached version of the website luckily I pressed back button
then posted the screens after that they changed back the profile again.

I received the Maquam CD reissue on Arc.  The sleeve notes indicate the disc was made in Ireland and the cover/digipak in India.  I really can't understand what the reason would be to create a made up label/owner, as has been claimed.  What purpose would this serve?

The artwork is made by a guy in UK, he does not live in india. It is the same person who do all artworks for El Culto label

And I k now for sure he lives in uk and not in india since he is an old friend of mine, in fact I was the person who introduce him to klaus wiese and grassows music so if it wasn't for me he would not been listening to them at all.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Have any tried VIP
« on: December 01, 2015, 12:36:19 PM »
It seem that people do not realize its power and how it revolutionize integration with midi with you software.

I am waiting for january 2016 before I will buy my first midi keyboard with VIP software.
M-audio and Alesis, AKAI are currently the ones that will use VIP software. All 3 companies have the same owner so we will probably not see VIP on any other manufactures.

M-audio have promised a more premium version then the M-AUDIO Code which seem interesting considering the high quality of the code model. Hopefully they will announce it in January.

With the VIP software your midi keyboard will almost become like a hardware synth since you no longer need the computer to change presets or parameters you can control everything on the screen.  They use sospehtice chaching algoririms so switching between presets will be faster then the regular way in your DAW.
You can play mutiple VST synths in a same VIP preset.

VIP means total Checkmate to all other midi manufacture who do not use this software, novations auto map in comparision to this is a joke,  the latest Native instrument NATIVE KONTROL  standard is something similiar to VIP with it difference that it will only work with plugins that are released in the NKS format. VIP works with all software.

Really looking forward to try this myself in reality,for me personally it will work a lot better no need to stare at computer screen and use the mouse while you try put yourself in a musical trance.

8th reason: I have a lack of confidence and trust of the aquality quality of streaming service of the music I am actually listen at spotify have been busted reconverted low quality mp3s to 320 mp3s this was a huge news line some couple of years ago, unfortunately people seem to have forgot this. Anyway I think this is kind of common on streaming services..it is hard for them be busted really...

9th: Many of the albums I have been listen to I have seen sometimes they mix a single version of a song with album version,  the song with the same name on the single was a totally different recording then the re-recorded album version I have seen many examples of this.

In general I lack confidence if they say it is flac or less I have no trust in this and I am unable to verify it.

The only service I trust is bandcamp.

Exactly Ekstasis - that was my point. Start small... and Mr. Rocket has already said he's leaning towards Mac which makes Garageband a perfect start.   

I'm fairly positive it comes with an array of synths and effects to get started with.

The name Garage band give such bad vibes about a audio program they really need to change that :)

Anyway Reaper is probably a better choice...
