That are great news  :) Works even without the NUKE controller!

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 don´t have any interest to update their Plugins.


Hi there,

i thought some of you may find this interesting....haven´t test it yet but it does sounds promising!



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 doesn´t work I get the appeal of Mac´s, 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 isn´t 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.


Really interesting thoughts and ideas...Sorry if this was posted before here!

One of the best produced tracks (arrangement, groove, used sounds, voice) i´ve heard for a long time - amazing middle break!....luckely i´m not a native english speaker so I don´t 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...

(from 2012) long before the current NSA issue:


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") don´t 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?


Small Addition...

I worked with the Neumann´s in the past in several recording conditions too:

IMO they are overpriced for all "non-pop music", especially as we use in "our" genre anyway a lot of effects, reverb etc. From my experiences the Neumann´s are a touch more detailed and presence than the Rode but for me it wasn´t worth to spend so much money for it.


Hi Julio,

i own both and can recommend these 2 mics (both are matched pairs)

Rode has a more "open/detailed" sound while the Octava is extremely warm and round (but less detailed in the high end range, so might be a bit restricted if you plan to record other sources with a lot of high end frequencies in the future too). But for low and mid key instruments like Cello, Viola, Bowls and Voice it is hard to bet especially for this price! Though, not sure if you can get it in Canada or USA...

Sounds like an interesting idea to develop further this Moog Guitar concept  8)

question I have paid for a single on CDBaby but never listed it and I bought a bar code. can I use that one barOde deover and over again for different albums?

No, you can´´s only for this specific item.

I have noticed on some recent purchases the practice of printing inner booklet liner notes in German.  Two that come to mind are Mathias Grassow "Wisdom of Fate" on Swedish Gterma label and Klaus Schulze "Shadowlands" on SPV.  Any theories on why the text wouldn't be translated into English?

Möglicherweise gibt es dazu keine Theorie, sondern ist lediglich eine Entscheidung des Künstlers. Und ausserdem - warum sollte oder muss alles auch in Englisch geschrieben sein?

Great work Tomas.....had to listen without looking at the screen to get a sense of the music by itself because the actual music merges so well with the visuals and creates the mood while supporting the drama......The key elements to a good film score
Hope the movie makes it over the atlantic to us!

Hello Julio,

many thanks for your appreciation!

I do agree that the pictures and the music merges well - it was a very interesting experience for me too that finally (as a viewer) you won´t anymore separate pictures and music....imo it feels like "one" by complementing each other.
