Everything and Nothing / Re: My Mom, age 72, has a boyfriend! Ugh.....

I can understand your feelings but I can't really say anything that will make you feel better about it. You will just have to learn to live with it sorry to say. If it were my mom I thing it would be better that after five years she find someone and be happy then to be alone and miserable. I know that's how my mom felt after my father died.

To answer your subject question, no I never liked them. In fact hated them. I remember in the mid 70s in junior-high school it seemed everyone my age in school loved them and I couldn't understand why. By the late 70s and high school it seemed now everyone hated them and I rejoiced, all seemed right with the world.  ;D

I don't have a problem people using their products if they think it makes a nice sound, I am sure in the right hands anyone of their softsynths can make some great music. But like I said, its the deception, the marketing of the same software with different skins that bothers me. Anyway, here their demo of the new Matrix 12 "faithful reproduction:"

Yeah I think they are deceptive with their products. They "claim" to reproduce all these classic synths, but if you have ever had any experience with the originals compared to their software versions, well they don't usually add up. The most blatant case I can think of is their version of the Arp 2600. I've own a couple of them over the years, have played many others. Their version is not even close to the real instrument. Their are just certain things that a real 2600 does that the software version doesn't do, it was just a big joke. I can only assume they figure most of their clients have never used any of the real instruments they claim to make.

I saw yesterday they are offering a soft synth of the Matrix 12. The demo was horible, doesn't any different then any of the other crap they offer.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Online Mastering ?
« on: November 20, 2014, 01:39:33 PM »
I don't know what "online mastering" correctly means - mastering service from remote mastering engineer and his studio OR automatic service from machine which works with comp/eq/limiter/maximizer.

It's the later, whcih is basically the mastering equivalent to masturbation.  ;D

Bert, next time you chat with Thom tell him I said hi, I haven't heard from him in years. Good to hear Thom is still around and working on stuff.

Working on my next album with new guest artist.  ;D



Actually that's an old picture from the early 1980s I found of the current studio I work in. And yes that is the actual Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet. Funny enough that space was my office up until today, I just moved into my new office. Too bad all that moog, Emu, and buchla modular goodness is long gone.

Steve Roach/Jorge Reyes--Ancestor Circle.  Did this get delayed??  Not on Steve's or Projekt sites.  Highly anticipated for sure.

I believe that is coming out any day now, maybe next week I think.

Yeah I didn't include my acoustic stuff because I need to organize it more. I'll add some photos of that stuff later. In the mean while here is a photo I took of my gongs that I got in Indonesia:

Curious about your monitors.....they are very deep (physically).

They are made locally, called Exacta, hand made by a guy named Ken Goerres. I bought them off of Paul Haslinger when he upgraded to a bigger floor mount versions. Brian Lustmord also uses these monitors. They are by far the best monitors I have ever owned. They are two ways, I also have a Hafler sub that you can't see in these pictures which helps with the low end.

Here's my ridiculously over the top studio. Hmm, maybe I should change the name to that from now on.  ;D Sorry about the picture quality, taken with my iphone and I don't feel like making anything better for now.


Desk is by KK Audio, the keyboard is the Korg Oasys. Monitors are custom made with a Yamaha M85 amp attached.


Keyboards here are Prophet VS and Korg Z1, box up in the left corner is an old Oberheim DSX sequencer.


Here is my eurorack and Blacet modular, with Alesis AirFXs off to the right.


Rack on left from top to bottom, TC Fireworks, MOTU 24i/o, Ursa Major Stargate 323, Sony R7. Rack on the right  Presonus Central Station, MOTU 2408mkiii, TC Reverb 4000, Lexicon M300, MOTU 308. Below that are a T-Resonator and an Alesis Wedge.


Left rack, Clava Nord Rack 2X, Roland XV-3080. Right rack, Oberheim OBMx, Emu Proteus 2000 which will soon be replaced with my Emu Morpheus now that it is working again.


On the left is an old obviously dirty (since cleaned) 8 core Mac Pro with UAD2 quad on top. In the rack, 2 MOTU midi timepieces, Waldorf Microwave 1, Korg Wavestation A/D, Emu Proteus/3 world, Oberheim Matrix 6R, TC Powercore.


Last but not least, Juice Goose powerstrip, Roland SPF325 Flanger, Sony D7, Lexicon MPX1, Presonus VXP, Presonus Eureka, Oberheim Digital Echoplex.

Steve Roach.  No new album in about three months.  I'm starting to worry.   ;)
Didn't Bloodmoon come out just two weeks ago?  Hehe, how soon we forget.  ;)

Loren... I would be grateful for any leads to a tech you may know when the time comes.  I have a short list of names but no actual reassurance . My M12 is working just fine albeit form day to day it can be an M9 or M7 and back to a M12, though usually most things are stable......Thanks so much.


For what it's worth I took it to Advanced Musical Electronics:  http://www.advancedmusical.com/

They have been around forever it seems. I remember back when I worked for Oberheim the owner Ruth use to come by at least once a week for parts and such, they always had a close relationship with Oberheim.

Very nice setup Julio. I too have a KK Audio desk, except mine is this gigantic thing with lots of room for rack gear.  :o I'll try to get some pictures up. Too bad KK Audio went out of business, they made great studio furniture.

How do you like the Solaris compared to the A6 you had, or your Matrix 12? Right now I too have a Matrix 12, except it's not mine, I'm taking it in for repair for a friend.

Scott, that's interesting, care to mention some of your favorites of his in DTS? I just last month got my surround sound setup working and am looking for more audio to listen.
