I did see that there will be some sort of crossgrade offered by UAD but terms seem to be unknown at present. We will have to wait and see!

Good news!.....be interesting to see how existing powercore plugin users will have to just invest in UAD2 hardware system and get the TC plugins at no additional expense or will we have to start from scratch again. 

When I stopped using the powercore system my Sonnox plugins that I used on the powercore platform were available to me as native and my license was switched to my iLok account at no cost.  Curious to see if this will apply to the UAD2 platform with TC plugins.

That new structures track is lovely; order placed!

I agree Chris.....Im not sure but the sounds on the new track seem current and I find that I can breath when I listen.  Sometimes a certain amount of the music we love here can be tense, beautiful but not restful as I find the new piece in this Structures from Silence anniversary edition.  Is this Roach's interpretation 30 yrs later?

Wow.....the first video I watched did not do that much for me, but once I understood the story in this video it really is an achievement. He continued where the Oberheim Matrix 12 stopped.  @ $30k its beyond most but I recall the New England Digital Synclaviar was about $50,000 in 1984 depending on the model.

The obie /moog sounds are very good but from a few reclusive patches I heard this really excels at the experimental.  I suppose you could say that is the same as the Matrix 12, great at bread & butter analog but really spreads its wings with serious modulation which is what its all about.

Thanks Immersion

I have been listening to the additional tracks that come with this remastered original....... :)....http://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/structures-from-silence-30th-anniversary-deluxe-3-cd-remastered-edition

Looking forward to receiving the CD

I have the original cd release but never did get the 2nd remastered release......I feel this one is worth it for the bonus tracks.  Structures from Silence still stands as my favorite Roach recording to this day!

I have to admit coming to it via the film Amadeus.....

I was familiar with the Requiem but once I had seen Amadeus it completely change the way I listened to Mozart, especially the Requiem.

Thanks Loren for the info.....from what I have read the company seems really stand up in support for discontinued products.  I may just roll the dice.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / TC Powercore on OSX 10.7
« on: March 01, 2014, 10:18:05 PM »
Powercore is gone sadly.....as Ive said elsewhere I bought a power core pci express card just to run TC's VSS3 Reverb plugin.  I still have the card and was considering getting a chassis for my laptop to hopefully run it again but TC electronics official dont support the platform beyond OSX 10.6..Snow leopard   So before I drop the cash on a thunderbolt Pci express expansion chassis I am hoping for some confirmation positive or negative that may help me decide to peruse this.  Can it work...because out there in the web I have not read confident reports

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Reverb Plugin Sound Demos
« on: February 26, 2014, 06:21:25 AM »
Julio,

Thanks very much for adding the guitar stuff to your demos, very interesting to hear these verbs (some of which I couldn't demo myself as I don't use an iLok thingy).
The thing that struck me is that they all sound good - dense and tonally balanced. I suppose it becomes a bit like fine wine appreciation - the differences are more perceptible with a more refined palette (so to speak) Saying that, I had a preference for the Sonnox Oxford, the lexicon PCM examples (very 'clean') and the softude TSAR 1's spatial effect.

I have to say though, that my favourites (for clean guitar) were still my two 'mysteryverbs', which are:
'mysteryverb1' A Nebula library (EMT140VNXT) of a sampled plate reverb
http://vnxtsound.blogspot.co.uk/2010/01/so-finally-vnxtemt140-ready-emt-140s.html

'mysteryverb1_2' Valhalla Uber-mod 'lateweb' preset (that I modified)

Ubermod is particularly interesting, as it's not sold as a reverb plugin as such, but you can really create things from scratch, with easy access to lots of parameters and it has extensive modulation parameters too. That Nebula library (to me) is just a great capture of a plate.

Lastly, one of my favourite verbs is actually the 'reverb' effect in Native Instrument's 'Razor' synth. I wish that was available as a standalone effect, as it's unique.

I feel your guitar piece Pete is well played with just the right articulation to show off these verbs, better than the synth demo which is interesting but has more going on which of course shows off the verbs in another way.

I agree they all sound good and as you say it is like fine wine appreciation.....

Interesting the Valhalla uber mod is a delay not a reverb....would not know it from the demo.

Thanks again for your contribution to this thread!

The reverb demos are expiring one by one and I honestly can not say which one I would buy at this point as my preference changes.....at least this thread is here to come back to for reference.

Just got done adding Pete Kelly's Guitar recording passed through each plugin......the differences are subtle.  The mix is set at 60% wet.

Yes Immersion I understand your perspective...why not put an entire PCM96 hardware processor ITB. .

Its sort of funny because I was a bit perturbed by the buy in price for the UAD 224....Core 2 Satellite + plugin.  I just am really starting to love it.  I recall buying a Powercore platform just to install the TC VSS 3 Reverb.

I suppose the point is that Im realizing I can go ITB without giving up anything and perhaps gaining a certain something  ???  I dont know...makes sense to me ;D

I have the demo of the Lexicon PCM Effects running and Ive listened to the lex reverb and fx together.  They are good but if I did opt to buy the PCM native verbs I would use my Sound Toys fx for designing a sound

Faures - Continental Drift
Faures is René Margraff/Pillowdiver, Le Berger, and Elintseeker/Fuzz Lee. This release is beautiful--really unique. The primary form of instrumentation is layers upon layers of guitar, with occasional piano, synth, and glitchy electronics. The result is a shoegazing style "wall of sound," but much more restrained and delicate than what might be expected. The music is thick, but delicate. And the melodies, when they emerge, will melt you. Give this a shot; the first two tracks, in particular, are outstanding.

Listen/Buy: https://homenormal.bandcamp.com/album/continental-drift

Thanks for the heads up on this Chris....its on its way to me.
