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 canīt 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 Iīve worked in the past? So finally, whereīs your legal proof for all your accusations?

Seems like this great forum isnīt moderated at all at the moment…a great pity!

"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."

Just wondering and Iīm really surprised that itīs OK that people on Hypnos forum are allowed for posting accusations and personal insults of other forum members!

SOON:

Klaus Wiese - Shapes I (Previously Unreleased / 2015 Version)

Shapes I is the first chapter of the Shape Series which wasnīt released anywhere else before. Most previously released albums by Klaus Wiese were clearly split into releases with a more acoustic approach (e.g. the series "Tibetische Klangschalen"), while other CDs like "Space", "Divine Orbit" and "Maquam" had a very spatious, hypnotic and timelessly flowing ambient feeling. The Shape Series focuses on the latter style, inviting the listener to experience a deep, lasting journey through time and space.

Hi Julio,

comparing to photography IMO the music is "overexposed". For my taste way too much "shiny" high end sounds. Iīm aware there is an audience appreciating this approach (mainly found in the States) + itīs also found in many synth presets (Hard+Software) but IMO it makes the music too much "metallic"..itīs just pleases the listeners expectations by having an increasing around the 3khz frequency.

I do like the musical ideas but not the mixing!

"Music for Dishwashers"

Brian Eno's long awaited project, coming soon....

For sure! Seems to be a new musical territory to participate into, inspired by some Hypnos members. I canīt wait for it!

Hmm, weird. It didn't embed but at least it created a clickable link.

Mike: Donīt use "https" but starting the urls with "www." only, then it works on this forum.

Had this problem as well before and it drove me crazy...Maybe you can make a separate thread about it so people on this board are aware of it?!?

Possibly my favorite work of his since The Thin Red Line.
!!!
Hearing this excites me. Thin Red Line is certainly my favourite from Zimmer as well.

El Culto - the "extreme" comment is about David Sylvian, not Steve Roach.

Sorry, Iīve misread the post. Thanks for the clarification!

  Haven't heard it though but with his extreme experiments in sound these days I'm not getting my hopes up. 


What are your (sorry to quote you for this word) "extreme" hopes and expectations for this artist - once more the usual and well known deep Ambient from Roach?

Quote from: Ekstasis

I think it is funny say  classical music has more complex audio information then in ambient music.
Ambient can be as complex as audibly possible.

I think you completely misunderstood something…Iīm not talking about "complex" at all!

"When it come to classical music with a lot (!) of dynamics there is a reason for this higher bit/sample rate rate, but when when it comes to Ambient I donīt know any music in this genre using the full dynamic making it worth at all to for the additional headroom nor a higher sampling rate."


17
I really don't know what to make of this, on one hand 24 bit makes more sense to me than higher sampling rates. While there are a lot of myths around, some of these are also on the technical side. The 'boffins' can tend to follow a lot of accepted wisdom regarding how we hear, without challenging this.

Reminds me of something:

Once Iīve spend hours on a track to find the right EQ settings in den lower mid range and with each new listening iīve found new bothering frequencies/resonances. When coming back from a short coffee break, to finally confirm my last editing, I realized that the EQ was all the time bypassed…...

18
24 bit is definitely no placebo effect.. It is always frustrating to have to down sample to 16 bit.. When you  hear such drastic difference.. But it does also matter what music..  But especially with ambient music I hear a difference..  If I buy an digital flac album I would easily choose the 24 bit if there was a choice.

Many blind tests regarding 16 vs 24 bit have proved that peopled canīt hear a difference. In any case, when it comes to CD anything has to go down to 16 bit anyway. To hear a difference especially (!) in ambient music is a huge myth for me. When it come to classical music with a lot (!) of dynamics there is a reason for this higher bit/sample rate rate, but when when it comes to Ambient I donīt know any music in this genre using the full dynamic making it worth at all to for the additional headroom nor a higher sampling rate.

Are people really be able to hear a difference between 192kbit and 320kbit mp3?   ;D

But OK, itīs usual that those believers feel better if they can say they feel have the tools or special gear (the price for the additional investment in those cases needs an explanation too) or rendering options. Iīm pretty sure, if I would offer 2 unnamed files for a blind testing concerning this issue, those people would avoid to be part of that test.

 

19
Old story, but just let people believe in this myth…there is clearly a market with huge money for it.

Congrats to the industry  ;D

Regarding 'blocks', I presume that the finishing of something is generally more the problem than the starting of something (?)

It is for me.....I have a music project that I thought was finished a year ago and was maturing so to speak.  Opened it up to see how its tasting only to discover it did not need more time but more work so Im currently throwing the kitchen sink at it.  Will it improve? Perhaps it was already all it could be.  And so it goes.



I agree with Julio that it can be harder to finish a project than to start one.  When you're at the project's beginning, there is a blank slate feeling that the project can be open to all kinds of possibilities.  When you reach the home stretch, what you've created before can start to narrow your options.  This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as for me it helps keep the project focused, so that it is not just a collection of random pieces.
