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.

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.

I have waited a long time for 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......

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:


Congratulations.  What a nice christmas gift!

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.

I have been listening, watching, reading, you name it.  Prices is daunting and availability a bit sketchy however to experience a Buchla without a second mortgage, this seems to be the way.  From my understanding its so much more than just a patchable monophonic enter the mind of its creator. 


Thanks for sharing the process, Julio. It's an interesting approach and I think I prefer to listen to it isolated. Later this week, I will listen to your soundcloud.  I think it's just a clash of techniques, maybe some more collabs and it will be a perfect marriage, and you are at the brink of something new.

Your Welcome.

My modular contributions to "Falling into Pace" were created from around the end of 2015 and through most of 2016 as an independent sound blog.  Only later once APK conceived the idea of this collaboration  did it manifest into this project.  That being said I disagree that there is a clash of techniques, on the contrary APK took my experimental sounds and crafted a beautiful and magical sonic world, often dark and melancholic yet for me full of wonder. 

Because of the nature of this collaboration and how the modular aspect of it is not always prevalent though always present I was able for the first time to listen with true objectivity.  Not something I can do with my own solo projects.

I respect your perspective and if the opportunity arises we may again set a course into the unknown!

Yes, this style it's not for me. I tend to prefer slowly evolving layers that morph into other things, clearly identifiable during the whole track, not noises that appear and disappear in random ways, leaving a feeling of emptiness, imo a good candidate for auto generative music.

You did well here perfectly described my part of the project and it was 100% auto generated.  I patched up the modular over a period of time and when I felt the patch had reached its zenith I pressed record and I let it do its thing. Completely auto generated, well actually control voltage generated but the same thing from the listening perspective.


I think you have the title for your next album:  "No Handrails."  ;)

I've been enjoying your collab with Julio this past week.  I think the edginess of Julio's modular sounds compliment the softer palate you use very nicely.  Yes, there are occasional Eno/Budd reference points, but I don't see that as a bad thing, since your distinctive style and Julio's unique timbres come through.  Congrats to you and Julio for such a nice release!


Thanks Forrest for your nice words.

I tried to reach for the ''handrail'', but it wasn't there.

Thats precious... ;D

This is very good indeed. The way it is all linked together and blends into a cohesive project is wonderful.

I assume this is the project mentioned in the colabarative topic in the Lounge below or is there another one in the offing with other folk from here ?

I like this very much , urgent list .

Thanks thirdsytem.

This project is not related to the Forum project though in spirit something like this could evolve if some interest was show.  "Falling into Place" are APK's interpretation and musical inspiration to my Modular Musing sonic experiments.  He did do a wonderful job at producing a flowing kaleidoscopic ambient work.
