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...

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.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Korg MS20 remake
« on: February 22, 2013, 02:38:43 PM »
Interesting articles.  Though the MS-20 is a neat machine, I wouldn't have thought there would be a demand for a monophonic synth these days, especially when polyphony seems to be almost a given with software synths.

Thought the same, but it seems like just those key words "analog" and "MS 20" creates excitement - good for Korg though  ;D

Maybe i´m alone with this opinion....never mind, but is this a "review"?

Lets be realistic...

- The writer mention who is behind the release
- Next he speaks very vaguely about the content and refers to some well know artists in this genre.
- Very soon we reach "All in all..." already

Sorry, but all of this could be also a text of a press release by the artist.

I´m just wondering, what is the value of something called "review" if it doesn´t go into depths or more detailed aspects? As an interested person for new/other music and/or artists, really, I can´t get much information out of this review.

For instance:

 "The ethereal and the atmospheric "shake hands" throughout the single tracks, evoking similar imaginary spheres and rich emotions as found on certain Robert Roach and Steve Roach releases"

More or less a standard phrase....i think some reviewers makes their life a bit too easy in today.

Quote from: Numina
Shipping a 5-OZ CD package to Canada jumps up 238%

oz. before after

5 $3.60 $8.55

238%?  ???

I wouldn´t be surprised at all if the old shipping prices was a result of subsidies by the state for economical reasons (increasing exports). So very likely those old prices wasn´t balanced in terms of expenses to run this business model in the long term.
