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...

Tonight, I was dreaming that someone did try to suffocate me with a pillow :)
I am lucky to be alive.

I wish I did remember my dreams more often...
There is no better when you wake up from a dream in the morning, and then you keep yourself in this dreamy state during the whole day...This is not very often for me unfortunately...
I wonder why someone does remember dreams and sometimes not...

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Ambient music & sitar/tanpura

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....

ok APK, I got a question regarding Robert Rich's flute samples.
I have heard that "3 samples" are included, are these multi-samples, or only three tones ?
I hope the samples consist of all notes on the flute, so I could play it every note on the keyboard.

I thought about making this thread this night,  would be interesting and inspiring to read what the forum members dream about during sleep.
If you have been dreaming something you want to share no matter how strange and bizarre, this thread is the place to do it.

« 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...

I have always been a fan of their Cameleon synth, and bought Alchemy when it first came out.
It's a fantastic piece of work. Very flexible, very powerful, and with some useful novel features.
Its presets still sound in the Cameleon direction though, which is a sort of an additive/metallic feel.
But its really capable of being almost anything, given that it will use samples and also basic
subtractive waves in its osc's. Its quite a deep beast if you like tinkering. I'd highly recommend it.

I'll happily answer questions about it if I can.

Not sure if I have much questions at this point, I have watched the 1 hour video tutorials on the site, it gives a pretty good insight of what to expect and what it can do...
Looking forward to tryit, even though I have not got tired of Omnisphere yet...

Regarding metallic sound, it seems that almost all digital synths focus in metallic/noisy sounds...
I am not sure why though..Might be cause they are the type of sounds that are easier to create...
Personally I usually find warm and more organic sounds more useful...unless I make some dark noisy ambient..

I've been hearing quite a bit about this synth.  I'd love to hear your thoughts on it once you've had some playtime with it.

Yes, as soon as I have bought a new soundcard for my computer...
I need a new good PCI Express soundcard, I hope to buy it maybe next month.
I am using the Line 6 POD X3 now as main soundcard, and it sucks for Low Latency ASIO audio.

I am thinking about either the new ESI PCIe soundcards, ESP1010e or Maxio 032e, or RME HDSPe AIO.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Do you still want to learn?
« on: February 12, 2009, 04:30:50 PM »
Yes, as I feel right now, there is no doubt in my mind that my interest of learning new things does fade with time.
And I am not sure that to collect as much knowledge and read as many books as possible is the ultimate goal in life.
I have a more transcendental/cosmic approach to life, There is no definitive meaning of life as human on this planet we are born..  I see the life more as an dreamlike presence...
The meaning of life is to me to collect new experiences and just enjoy this mystery of life..And dream...
Music is for me the essence of my life, since it fills a void and makes me dissolve into inner dimensions and beyond...without it I think I would just feel a lot of emptiness...
Or maybe..I would find other passions to dispossess the time.

Yes I agree with you all, mgriffin is very lucky to have such beautiful wife!
Life is unfair  ;)

I am very lucky -- in fact, my wife is much more attractive than she looks in most of her pictures!   

yes I believe you no doubt, and if she likes ambient music she is just a dream come true :)
