This is the art of listening, its about listening, about the experience and the creation of sonic art in the  heart mind of this listener

The movie intrigued me also and its direction is not obvious from the trailer.  I thought it was most interesting when it was said that this is the best time, historically to "listen to music" technologically speaking and yet it maybe the first time that music is consumed as a casual sensory accessory due to mobility which asks is that the best environment to listen?  What is the best environment?  Music does not come with listening instruction generally though some do explain unique recording situations that are important to fully appreciate the listening experience.....perhaps the best experience of music is the concert for both the performers and the audience.  The interactiveness.  The complete immersion!  Lots to think about.

Tardigrade my own thoughts on this from a personal perspective.....I listen to music all the time which is mostly of my own in creation and during the compositional process I listen much more then I actually record. The two have to coexist no doubt and all musicians do it in varying degrees.  As a music lover/fan I feel being a musician is a disadvantage because I find myself still working when Im listening, analyzing, figuring out structure, separating the sonic layers to a piece and often missing the actual experience of enjoying the music.

Impressive Minimoog D and virtual Moog shoot out.....the note for note comparison nulled each other out but I heard a difference in the melodic performance pieces, the Model D was brighter with a tad more punch and presence at least to my ears.  Splitting hairs really.

What a great way to be welcomed back from your sabbatical with the Hearts of Space broadcast.....Bravo!

Here's a track I really really like....Underworld : Born Slippy,  its the performance that makes this for me.   The melodic synth part is just breath taking.

Goatrance. Laughing Buddha - Karma (1997)

It's old but still one of my favorites for that high octane kaleidoscopic feeling.



Wow...whats the bpm on that......were things that fast in 1997  ;)  Love it.

Julio, that Plaid track is indeed most excellent.

Here's  two belters from the Gasman - both somewhat 'oblique' :)

Pete, Alcatraz Disco...that cracks me up.  The music is completely messed up in a good way teetering on the edge of slipping into structured track. Love it

^ Very nice indeed. I like the 80ies vibes.

I quite like this one too, especially in combination with the clip which is beyond cool:

IDM in spirit but this makes me drive 30+ over the speed limit easliy.....FYI this is a compromised quality compressed file.  The cd version is amazing.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: TC Electronic VSS3 Native Reverb is here
« on: January 11, 2017, 09:54:41 PM »
Just went through the download & activation...iLok2 necessary.... which I know is an issue with some forum members.

Im happy to see that I was able to upgrade / cross grade from my powercore license to native for 50% less. $79  Its like 8 years since my powercore card got shelved, trashed, I mean recycled, yet Im still there in their system.  8)

Loren the only reference TC makes is porting it over from the system 6000, perhaps the older Mk1, so Im sure your right....many say the VSS4 is a nice improvement over the VSS3 but Im happy just to able to use the VSS3 again.

As I mentioned its been quite a few years since I used this so lets see...will let you know.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / TC Electronic VSS3 Native Reverb is here

I have waited a long time for this.....my powercore pci express card is long gone and this was and still is my favorite reverb that has not been available until now unless one has a 4000 unit or their flagship 6000.

Word was the UA was going to port the TC software over and that may still happen but this is exciting to have a Native version :)

Ekstasis, why on earth do you keep putting up a style of music that does not fit the style of this community
and its users, and that gets no comments or interest from anyone, and that just keeps filling up page after page with videos.
Please, try to keep the interests of the people here in mind. It is pretty obvious what they are.

Yes this is really nauseating.....Ekstasis, regardless of the merits of this music it does not belong here in an ambient music forum.  It is not Dark Ambient, it is just dark goth metal for lack of a better terminology similar to what your buddy aelfa or what its name was posted.  Please stop posting these relentless carcinogenic sounds.

The Price drop on all of their plugins is crazy.  I once used their Renaissance plugins like 10 years ago but never upgrade because of the hefty $200 fee. 

For example the Renaissance bundle is now $149, my upgrade fee I just payed was $79 for a bundle that lists at $399. 

Really good prices on individual plugins as well......http://www.waves.com

I found out today that my "Sleepwalker's Ocean" album made it to one of Keyboard magazine's Top 10 lists for 2016.  Very surprised and excited:

Does not really say or show too much but I am really excited to see this.

Deckard's gun looks very similar to the original.

Music in the trailer has the same melody and Vangelis sound.  Soundtrack will be critical.
