Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Steve Roach - Soul Tones - 2012
« on: December 16, 2012, 07:20:53 AM »
Some things are hard to let go of, but as more musicians like Steve and Saul Stokes and others move their music into a purely digital realm, I suppose we will have to accept the inevitable, cling to our shiny plastic curios and catch new music as it is released into the digital aether.

I feel a lot has to do with Bandcamp itself....high resolution downloads up to 24 bit resolution, easy navigation for the listener,  super friendly for the artist as well as a real sense of individuality for each artist site.  I am going to shut down my own website and just use Bandcamp for all future releases......I have searched hard for a digital home for my music and Bandcamp is so far ahead of the crowd IMHO.  As established musicians such as Steve Roach, Saul Stokes & Alpha Wave Moment create a Hi Res digital existence @ Bandcamp, I hope it will inspire others to follow and fans such as myself can have access to quality sound that was once only available in physical cd format.

Wonderful music has nothing to do with format.....my hard drive is always running, and in this case with Pandora @ 24bit resolution, thank you ;)

Thanks Anthony.....yes the final track,  had to write all the other music just to get to the last track which was what I want to say,  though I did know it until I got there, and so it often is in life.  Love the journey.

Hope you enjoy it Harry!

the tide ebbs and leaves behind
memory held by the grace of the moon
until surya returns its flow
a moment to welcome
the magnetic release

Wow....so much to think about.  Feels like looking in the mirror and asking yourself......How do I belong and where is it?  Exciting and uncertain!  Thanks for the great post Mike.

@Julio Di Benedetto @mgriffin Also, if you're the kind of artist who can quickly sell 200-300 discs, why not do pressed CDs instead of CDRs?

If the label won't press a CD and will only do a CDR, the artist doesn't have much choice. It's the labels' decision. My way or the highway sortof approach. It's tough enough just finding labels to release something period.


Hi Will.....I realize you are at the mercy so to speak of the label, but does there come a point where you take control yourself when the labels release standards are not what you want.  I don't intend to make this sound egotistical because label interest in an artist is a beautiful thing regardless of the end product.   The financial & PR responsibility of doing it yourself become much greater, and I can see this would be a deterrent.   Mind you I can't say how each label works regarding who pays for production cost etc......so?  A Celer release is exciting for itself not because of the label that releases it. IF you choose to release a limited edition rubber stamped Verbatim CDR, your listers will buy it because of the music not the packaging which was a point well made by APK.

Hi Tomas......can you describe when you hear this clicking on your mac (Im on macs) just so I can listen for it.  Is it random or predictable.  Are you talking about internal or external drives?

Thanks

A co-worker said he recently saw a movie called Prometheus and was sort annoyed that the movie seemed to borrow quite heavily from the Alien movies, which he liked.   I told him it was the prequel to the Alien movies......with a look of astonishment he said "Now it all makes sense".  Suggest that Prometheus is that different that perhaps only Sci Fi junkies put it together, though I can't image how someone could not see the connection.

Interesting thoughts!

Came across this player that uses SD cards to store music and I believe is hot swappable....I like that idea, you can use whatever file format you want.... still for me usb connectivity is a must. http://www.qlshifi.com/en/wzcapi/qa350_mod_v2.htm

Completely non mobile here...but I have some questions.

What portable device play wav, aiff, flac etc....I suppose it makes more sense to store lossless formats than fat wav files.

iPods can handle Apple lossless?

this is all new to me and something Im looking into especially with newer cars that have usb ports.....yes Im cars shopping.

Seren you have good taste in headphones.... I Love my Grado Sr325's

Firstly, why release on a B quality format.....I know the minimum for pressed CD's is 300.  Not disrespecting CDr's and those that release their music on them, just saying so within the context of this artist who will clearly sell more than a 100, and apparently has.

Perhaps the music is more of a side note or older forgotten material because such a small pressing could suggest the artist lack of faith in the music......have not heard it mind you. 

Or this is a limited hard copy for those interested as the main release will be digital.

I installed a 240g SSD in my Macbook Pro this year...had not even heard of this technology until Mike brought it up in another thread......thank you sir!  Snappy, yes, though it boots up about 5 - 10 seconds faster than my G5 @ 7500 rpm.  Nothing to write home about, however alll software apps, Logic, Aperture, Photoshop, Illustrator etc run "solid" Sort of feels like the  solidness of a Mercedes compared to a Buick....or I should say my VW Golf  :), actually the Buick could be faster than my.....well you get the idea.

When price permits I will switch my studio system drives over to SSD for all creative files.

When the time for a new HD you might look at Solid State Drives.  No moving parts.

After several years my Glyph external HD would not boot.....contacted the manufacturer and  shipped it out to be firmware update.  During my conversation with tech support I mentioned  this constant disk spinning issue which had gone on for many years.  He came back with surprise that I had not turned it off and that it had be "spinning" for so long.  His solution which is what he does at a studio he moonlights at is to put my entire studio through one source like a power conditioner/surge protector with a on off switch.  Click of the switch off shuts the entire room down including all hard drive......click of the switch on and the entire room powers up.  Actually my HD's have on/off switches on the front but some are in closets and not convenient.  Also when I shut down my computer there is a audible difference coming from the  external drive which I believe is the the data head no longer in contact with the disk, disk is still spinning though.
