Spotify likely uses OGG to bypass paying MP3 license fees to Fraunhofer.

Altus - Below The Root
3 listens and hearing something new each time. Well done, Mike.
I have often thought of picking up a Minibrute, really good little mono synth and cheap!
I think ominsphere looks really dated now days, they need to rethink it all completly, it has been looking pretty much the same since atmosphere.. which is like over 10 years oldThe problem is if they drastically change the interface, they'll anger the long-time users. "Don't change what isn't broken," they'll say. Whether or not it's broken is, again, a personal matter. Does it look dated? Sure, the design is kind of grandiose. But I'm comfortable with it, and I can easily navigate through its functions. Just as you are with Alchemy.
I'm still tempted to try Studio One from Presonus.
Altus - Komorebi Somehow I missed this when it first came out. A great collection of slow, deep breathing ambient drones, a little more on the upbeat, melodic side, but a gentle, dark undercurrent winding through as well. I've already listened to it 3 times since yesterday. Well done, Mike.I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
The name Garage band give such bad vibes about a audio program they really need to change thatFL Studio has the same problem. Obviously they changed the name in hopes people will consider it a "real" DAW, but I'll always call it FruityLoops. For the record, I've been using it exclusively since 2003. It's a great piece of software, and it's true they never charge for upgrades, ever.
I definitely dont what to get personal so no need for judgement here. The topic is the issue and its implications not those of us discussing them, so hope I did not come across that way.Not at all.
What upset me is they didn't have the murder off camera or a fast cut. The girl was whacking a dummy in the head with a sledgehammer while blood spurts everywhere, including the girl.While you didn't outright explain that in your original post, I suspected this was the case. Obviously, another great method to shock the viewer. By leaving the camera static, no cuts, it makes the viewer feel almost like a voyeur to a sick act. Add the child as the murderer, which is fairly taboo, and that brings it up a notch. Very often there will be no music. It's all very manipulative toward the viewer.
