Other Ambient (and related) Music / Arjen Schat - Sonic identity
« on: February 23, 2016, 10:00:06 PM »


http://arjenschat.nl/album/sonic-identity

“Sonic Identity” is the eighteenth release on Arjenschat.nl 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

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Sequentia Legenda - Blue Dream
« 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

45
Does any one know if it was filmed?

I really like the artwork it stars good..  But the reset is very Mediocre  I so not like the bass line  and I do not like all these scratchy rhythmic delay effects

Of it have a collector value it would make sense since those can increase in value

How does the newly remastered cd sound compared to the original (Sonic Atmospheres) cd? I just pulled it out from my collection and listening right now.
I was hoping M Stearns would perform live someplace USA after the 2013 AmbiCon gig. The one that I missed. And now regretting it. I know he was AWOL for about 10+ years before that weekend. Heard rumors that he was going to perform a live show somewhere earlier this month. But that did not happen. But the music still lives on......
.......How about a one off gig somewhere in beautiful country Michael Stearns?

Let me add that the AmbiCon 2013 gig, M Stearns was my favorite artist for that event. I felt it was way to short of a set for Steve Roach and Robert Rich to accomplish what they normally do best.

Edit: Checking on eBay while listening to Within - The Nine Dimensions, that cd is up for sale on eBay for $150+. I guess it's more rare than Planetary Unfolding.

Let me guess louder and brighter?

Not all remastered album sounds better let's be clear about that

When ordering from USA  I did use to try to buy at least 10 cds

Listening to stay clean  at the moment I think it is my favorite song by the band

This album is fantastic indeed.
I was expecting as much, since Yen Pox involves Michael J.V. Hensley who has my utmost respect for his phenomenal albums as Blood Box.
It is a great album, hopefully there will be a new Blood Box album this year.

Let's hope so.  Quality dark ambient for sure. It is rare these days I find good dark ambient

What is his band camp  page?

I like the Steve roach release a lot releases recently. 
 I read in an interview that he could release hundreds of cds per year but he does limit it to like 5 per year with inte intention.  I think I understand he does not want to over produce.  But I think he should release everything that he is satisfies with.  I am a huge at be roach junkie I could be ever get enough even it it was one can per day lol.  His music gives an extra dimension to my life

Sounds good I will have a deeper listen later tonight grassow certainly know his drones he is the master of what he do.

I'm guessing Ekstasis that, if you were coming over to my place for a jam session or a recording session or heading out for a gig, you might not want to be packing up your H8000.

The Space and the H9 are very portable and support quick editing when you're reacting to an evolving soundscape with other musicians. For me, they "outweigh" my very weighty and large PCM-90 in those situations. I've also grown to prefer their sound - but that's just my ears/brain.

I'll point out too that although the H8000's converters are superior, that's less of an issue when you're sending your signal to a verb from a mixer send and just getting the delicious wet spaceooze returning to the main mix.

Using your machine inline as more than just verb is where it really shines, in so many ways.

Yes you are right it is portable that is a good thing, But I see people using smaller and smaller things even replace ipads with a lot of important stuff, I Think all that stuff is good if you are on the go or if you go on jam session or concert, but I think at home, you should not compromise and use portable equipment.

When it comes to ambient depending on your selection or reverb you will place your self in different leagues no matter how good music you do without a good reverb your music will not reach the surface.  I hear many good artists but their lack of good reverb relally limits their potential. I think an eventide space  will limit your potential.
But I also think not every one agree with my view, it is just my personal opinion. Eventide Space would not be my choice for primary reverb.

Routing the eventide Space reverb thru other stuff in the chain can help for sure, there is other stuff that can bring magic to the reverb.

If I would bring my H8000FW I would buy a really case for it in that case, and then guard it very closely lol.

Anyway Lets hope for an H9000 will be released.. h8000 have some serious compromises.. and the software integration makes little bit too much old school to work with..and to make presets.  Eventide has been writing in their own forum that they do not make enough money to afford to make a new high end box like H9000 that is why they try to milk out as much money they can from their past algorithms rebundle them in software plugins and also stomboxes.

The Eventide Space sounds like a very nice box.

I've been putting the Minilogue through the MeldaProduction stereo generator plugin then through the Valhalla Room reverb. Produces great results. Valhalla UberMod is also excellent across it. I have them in series.

Have grown to really like the Minilogue more and more.

My opinion about the space is this, Eventide is company that is living on it's heritage.
No people that where inolved making their best products such as eventide H8000fw ,H3000 and other products are no longer in the company.

What have Eventide been up to the last 10 years ?  What they have been upto is repackaging their heritage (algorithms) into mid range products.
They have changed from being a high end company to focus on the mid-end. 

My opinion about the eventide Space is besides somewhat dumbed down algoritms people do not realize the converters are not at all on par with their high end devices such as H3000 H8000FW, that is why to me Every recording and sample I have heard all of these have this "low-fi" quality compared to the h8000 and h3000, while you of course easily can hear the advnced algoritms and pitching in the reverbs they still going thru cheaper converters compared to their full size rack models.

The advantage using synths with the Eventide Space is all the knobs it suits very well for synths and it takes little space it fits on your desk, I just it is all about how good conversion you want, especially for an analog synth I would find it important. The marketing says pretty much is that you get the sound of the h8000fw for a fraction of the money I think this is misleading but unfortunately  a lot of people buy that PR crap, as I said I think it sad they do not release new High end products anymore a lot of people are waiting for H9000FW using the exact same converters as H8000fw Please but with thunderbolt and better software/plugin interrogation  it is really all people want, but the converters is still 10 years later regarded as one of the best.

in Usa it cost 499, in eu it cost about 599 dollars, I think especially in eu it is ridiculously overpriced, but even in the us it is still overpriced, I would choose a second hand hardware reverb any time, like a PCM 90 or something or something that actually have good converters in them

With that said the form factor is perfect for synt playing be able to use the knobs like that is perfect.. companion for the minilogue, but I would never pay the amount of money for the reverb. Since I own the H8000fw I know for sure the difference between the space pedal and the real deal, I am a glad owner of that.

I listen to this album today...I really enjoy it... still the hiss sound does stills somewhat annoy me..but it is only a part of the recording...
I like the kind of warm metallic sound to the album..

Some moments of the album really makes my mind insane but in a good way... definitely psycho-active music,  like taking drugs but without drugs. I am listing to part 3 right now
