Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Ableton Live 9 and Max for Live
« on: November 19, 2013, 11:37:22 AM »
I have not been using ableton live since 2009, I did move over to reaper.. which is use the cpu better and gives better sound quality.
the latest Sonar X3 seem to be very inspired form Ableton it have the session view...which is the only thing why people use ableton.
This is something I kind of miss in Reaper. But with a maxed cpu I must prioritize performance.

well you are right, making ambient with the mouse is not real ambient from heart, atleast it does not feel that way for me, I have no interest to morph in afterwards besides mixing but I want to morph the audio in real time. Otherwise it feels pointless for me.

If you do not use the session view, I would recommend trying Reaper.

I hope something will happen...File sharing is better then spotify..cause atleast then the artitsts fans do not get fooled by paying money into the wrong pockets..it is like fooling people and give them good conscience to "listen" to music. But as long is it is greedy companies like spotify then file sharing and bit torrents is preferred... I am not a high beliver in that model...I like bandcamp system better..
especially if you yourself can decide what price.. A lot of artits have no job..they just need money for rent and food..
for that even small contributions can make big difference but if spotify take 99.9% it is not possible to survive on music..

I love Bandcamp as an unsigned musician. It serves its purpose extremely well.

It's great for fans too because I know I've discovered plenty of great music there.

yes I like the conecept...

I wonder..how much comission does bandcamp take ?
are they greedy ?

15% for digital sales. That's not too bad IMO.

surprisingly low. I did expect atleast 30%...
I wonder what spotify have, probably 99% or something (shared with the label combined)

How many people know it is 128kb/s  I do not think many...
I found it out when I did try to download some album with jdownloader.

I understand they want to keep bandwidth down.

there is a new synth called Lush 101 by D16. I find this to sound absolutely mesmerizing .. it use a lot of cpu though in high quality mode...as all good sounding soft synths, and of most D16 plugins they really only shines in high quality mode.

I have never really understood the art of glitch either...it seems like every ambient music that involve glitch sounds..is regarded a masterpiece....All "mordern" ambient genre...have glitch sounds...
Too me it seems like a waste of time to cut and paste "glitches" there is absolutely no emotion in that...it is only cut and paste of digital jitter/noise... of course..there is good and bad examples....
There is a few artists that use glitch in an artistic way...Like Keith Berry ...

Anyway like a huge Opphoi (or is it Oöpphoi?) fan...this is without doubt one of the high lights of the years...even though..I have no idea what to expect..

Hallå Stefan!

Really looking forward to hear this album, the samples seems very good.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Lossless .flac vs CD
« on: April 13, 2009, 07:06:51 PM »
I like Flac.  But I think the prices are unreasonable.

The only thing I really like about cds, is that you have to wait for it to arrive in your postbox.
I like the first time you hold the cd in your hand, then I play the cd ONE time, then I rip it to flac or mp3.
Then I never play the cd again. I do not even own a traditional cd player.

One more good thing about digital music, it does not take physical space, if I would have my entire mp3 collection as cd I would need to buy an new bigger apartment :)

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: iMac for music?
« on: March 31, 2009, 02:52:30 PM »
You make it sound like MAC is this totally problem-free universe...where no problems exist at all, everything just works like pure magic! :)
Well..I wish it was like that..but the reality is there is problems and bugs for MAC as well:)
And You also need to update drivers just like in Windows..so not much difference.

You need to tweak an MAC as well maybe not as much as Vista though.....and to tweak Vista if you know what you are doing does not take you more then one hour.

Everything and Nothing / Re: LOST - new season starts today, 21 Jan.
« on: February 16, 2009, 12:16:30 PM »
Immersion - I'm confused by your last comment about one hour episodes... It's an hour show.

The best way to watch Lost is on dvd - where there are no commercials - nothing to pull you kicking and screaming into commercials which are 5x louder than the show.

Watching online isn't too had. The commercials are considerably less annoying. 

And yeah!  Smoke monster is back!  Love this show.   

It is actually about 40 minutes, but with commercial and all shit it is probably 60 minutes.
I would not mind 80 minute episodes.. as I said, Lost is a drug for me, so the more the better :)
I would never ever watch it on tv, I am strongly against commercials it would ruin everything.
I always download it from either piratebay or ftp...

I also wish there was less melodramatic shit... it is just too much sometimes...I also do not like the back flashes etc..from their past life outside the island..
this feels like filler material... just to fill the void...

Yearning, by Robert Rich and Lisa Moskow, prominently features the sarod, a somewhat similar instrument.  It's a great album.

Pure 5 star timelessness... I wish Rich would do something similar in future, but this time even deeper...

hello,
if you like ambient music with sitar you should try Al Gromer Khan, his huge discography is full of wonderful gems.

Going through his vast discography atm
He have released a lot of mediocre music it seem.
For me I think I would need a special kind of environment to appropriate this music to the fullest potential...

Anyway, "Mahogany Nights" is the best one so far....

« on: February 13, 2009, 03:34:13 AM »
I am 24, and even though many claim to never have children in my age..I really think I never will have...the reasons are many...one is overpopulation, I think that everyone who relinquish to have children does this planet a big favor...I also do not feel any need to have children just because I "must"...I must do nothing...
I also think I would not be a good father either...

I miss the smoke monster...

I guess you are happy now, since it is back in the latest episode :)

By the way, I see Lost more as an drug then entertainment. NO matter how bad it may be, I am always forced to watch the next episode, the whole series is designed this way.
I think the whole method is much related to TV commercials, every second is planned in detail, to get as many viewers as possible...I think it could be many times better if it wasn't so compact and commercialized, one hour episodes would be really nice to start with...
