El Culto - the "extreme" comment is about David Sylvian, not Steve Roach.
Sorry, I´ve 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
It does look good, and I assume sound good too - never had to consider an ilok - what are the problems?
The computer I will be using it on (if i buy it) will not be 'online' itself - could that be an issue?
Yes Seren it will be an issue.....for ilok to work it must be online so that your computer an the ilok license manager can be synced from the ilok website. Its very straight forward but does require online connection.
What's the difference between a person like you that claims to have ''little gear'' (clearly not true the pictures don't lie) and me and Extasis? Are you saying that you are better than us?
This whole "Chef" thing has got me into this thread because I intended to stay out of it for obvious reasons.
I have been a professional Chef for the last 27 years and I emphasis "professional" because I get paid to do this. With all these opinions floating about here some real world facts about cooking are warranted.
1. The only essential tool a cook needs is a sharp knife, preferable a good one about a $100 and should last many many years.
2. All that "equipment" you may have seen in commercial kitchens is there for one reason...to produce food for a lot of people in a short period of time. Practically every fancy piece of equipment can be done with a good sharp knife if you know how but often a short cut is needed because time is critical and the doors open at 5pm and the show must commence. Hence the need for fancy equipment
3. Anything done in a commercial kitchen can be done in a home kitchen....granted you might not want to smoke pork butt in your house or have a veal stock simmering for 48 hours.
4. The creative process is a team effort in a commercial kitchen.....I write the menu, source ingredients, look for interesting flavors that work well together or contrast each other etc....but it gets handed off to the station that will actually complete the dish so there is a constant need for excellent technique and often relearning. Part of my job is that the cooks in the kitchen are exposed to these techniques so that they can do the job and we arrive at the completed dish together during the chaos and fury of a busy service
5. There are no real short cuts.....sort of contradicting myself here....what I mean is if you want to understand sauces you have to know the traditional mother sauce that came out of french cooking. The principles learned allow one to be really creative or break the tradition and know why you are doing so. Training is everything and then the creative expression follows.
6. You dont have to go to culinary school to be a good cook...you do have to work in several or often many different restaurants to get the real knowledge if you choose to work in this industry
7.The equipment in commercial kitchens is only a means to an end, the most important part is the creative human factor that will make the food taste delicious, look exciting and been full of nutrition to promote a healthy and energized life.
I almost feel like he and Cosmic Fabric are coordinating with each other at times.
Yep, this thread has indeed been de-railed, with my Jedi powers of thread posting, it may be better just to delete it altogether...
...music which is essence is produced by the gear itself
...music which is essence is produced by the gear itself
Tomas opinion is that all gear sound the same , all EQs sound the same, all effects and compressors sound the same, gear does not matter in the hands of a true "master" like thoma$ cause whetever gear he want to replicate he just need to open a window in his ableton live. Respect goes both ways around, I respect other artits gear, whatever you are satisfied with but there is really no need to piss on other peoples gear, and tell people that you have wasted money to buy good gear, in is childish and just a sign of jealously if not..
but again if there was a way to hide thoma$ posts from this forum it would have at a totally different vibe, his arrogant macho style, laughing in people faces, totally humiliating people but in an non-direct way to avoid himself to get banned
Okay, Mister Fabric (or whatever your name is this week)
I think you've missed the point of the original post....
does the A6 have any kind of unofficial software editor controlled with midi? from what I have heard
it is kind of pain in the ass to program
Yes as we all know it's much easier to program a synth that has something like 70 knobs and just as many buttons with a large LCD screen on a computer with only a mouse.
Maybe people are worried we'll be offended if they have any comments other than pure praise, but that's not true. Not every new release can be everyone's favorite, we realize.
