Mike, donīt forget that people usually eat what they get served in the Apple universe and mainly applaud in chorus….at the end i can see in anything something positive even itīs a step backwards.

Example: I was replacing my Macbook Pro (2011) which have 2 HDīs inside (DVD replaced by a caddy for a second HD) as i need more storage. Now with all the new 15īseries this isnīt anymore possible as they decide to make the book smaller for "fashion" reasons…moreover now you have to decide right now (when purchasing a new model) for a SSD size…there is NO chance to replace it later by something else yourself….thatīs just a stupid and devil behavior.

Same for the Retina display…itīs a joke to force people to go for this nonsense resolution where you canīt recognize anymore things without a magnifier (especially for music programs).

Luckily i bought on the last minutes a previous model (i7, 2.6 Ghz) before the stupid announcement-conference started.

Any chances of an el culto Bandcamp happening?

Sorry to say, but no plans for that as we are specialized and focused on physical products only.

I just recently purchased a used Klaus Wiese's Soma cd for $43.97....the most money Ive ever spent on a single cd.  A perfect copy it is but thats crazy or I am. 

Tomas are you listening.  Digital editions of Klaus Wiese out of print music as Castleview suggested.  :)


Someone is calling me  ;D

Soma isnīt official available at the moment - just spoke about that with the label today

Nevertheless, today weīve managed to got some other old and long time sold out KW CDs (Turandot/Monsoon/Tariqa)  :)

But it seems the plugin is a bit fussy with some hosts:

What I thought was cool about Acoustic Mirror was the use of impulses from the acoustics of actual spaces like Chicago's Navy Pier.  I saw a series of concerts in that pier, and it was fun comparing my memory of that space with the plugin.

Hi Forrest,

i agree, Acoustic Mirror is a great plugin but the GUI is terrible  >:( But it seems Sony donīt have any interest to update their Plugins.

Julio,

It would be great and interesting if you could post something (short video or audio) you have done with it so far!

You know as it is - demo-videos for a product are always too polished  ;D

Quote from: Altus

If an artist is going to do a limited release of that kind and not offer downloads to purchase as an alternative, (as far as I'm concerned) they're asking to be ripped off via piracy. I get the appeal of limited releases, but why piss off your listeners by not allowing them to hear your work. To collectors, downloads have no trading value, unlike a physical product, so they shouldn't be considered the same thing.

Allow me to rephrase a bit  ;D

"If Apple is going to release Logic only for Apple Computers and not offering to purchase it for Windows too, they're asking to create angry customers (of course, the piracy issue doesnīt work here...lol). I get the appeal of Macīs, but why piss off your customers by not allowing them to work with your program on a PC?"

 ;)

For this example, is Apple now "devil" for you because it isnīt acting the way you would like to have it?

I hear and understand that you would love companies (or labels) just following the rules and wishes of (individual) customers, but if you run a company/label or whatever you have to follow first your personal believes/intentions and not "running behind" each personal wish from outside.

One of the best produced tracks (arrangement, groove, used sounds, voice) iīve heard for a long time - amazing middle break!....luckely iīm not a native english speaker so I donīt have to bother about the stupid lyrics  ;D

OUT NOW ::  Nautic Depths - Elsewhere I (Musical Philosophy)

Comes as Luxus Digipak



"Elsewhere I" is the deepest and most colourful album by Nautic Depths so far. As the title suggests, it explores and dives into those places any listener of Ambient Music very likely knew about. A feeling of moving out of reality and physical focus with a sense of being "Elsewhere" - like an emotional journey to known, but also new and free places. "Elsewhere I" (followed by Part II later) is particularly inspired by these mind-based territories we can only reach through our imagination...

Everything and Nothing / Country of Freedom

(from 2012) long before the current NSA issue:

29C3 Panel: Jesselyn Radack, Thomas Drake, William Binney on whistleblowing and surveillance


Well....

I think the title track (only until minute 6:00) has a nice essence but lacks a lot of mixing.

For my taste toooooooo noisy in the upper mid/high range, but maybe thats what you are looking for. I can imagine cutting via EQ specific frequencies can improve the track massively.

PS: I hope APK (the "noise man") donīt read this post ;D

I don't mind ambient noise in general - however I live on a main and busy road and somehow woosh, wooosh, woooosh of traffic does not fit in with gently meditative bowl sounds....

Streets of Himalaya?
