Im watching it but not really certain if its that necessary right now.....Logic 9 is fine.
Blake maybe check ebay for Boxed Logic Pro 9.
I have to say a lot of it is very samey - so much angst ! (and so little dynamics and colour). I think a 'heavy ambient' band would be most welcome - loud/soft/loud etc
If you're in a large metropolis you can actually build a small ambient community if you have the willpower and staying power to make it happen.
I was an early adopter back when Bandcamp got started. I love it, they know how to treat artists, and buying music through bandcamp is dead easy. I also like the way they handle physical sales, as I have to box it up and mail it myself, not depend on cdbaby or a different distribution platform. This makes the artist and listeners feel more connected, and I like that.
I'm just listening to Gramophone Transmissions on Bandcamp right now and really digging it. My cup of tea. Proves that rapid gratification can be good.
PS3 or any PC game that isn't too demanding of a video card. I'm into a lot of things, although my preference is to steer away from scrollers or anything that requires twitch-style reflexes.
I was a WoW addict from 2006 - 2009. So I'm thinking that Skyrim might be worth exploring. But I'm also intrigued by The Secret World. Has anyone given that a shot? http://store.steampowered.com/app/215280/
Anyone played anything lately that they'd recommend? My wife and kids are traveling at the moment, which suddenly leaves me with some free time on my hands. I'm tempted to splurge on Bioshock Infinite or Skyrim.
I "listened" to this today....
and by "listened" I mean I whipped out my guitar and tried to play along after not playing these songs for 10-ish years and trying to remember what part comes next....
I should really get back to the stack of ambient CD's piling up on my kitchen table that I bought months ago and then didn't listen to...
IMHO it is their best ever album, raw and powerful, nothing else they've done has ever come close to it.
