The TI2 Darkstar is a beauty, I am after one of those myself, although it may not be this year. We are hoping to extend the house this year, which would incorporate a new studio room,  then I can concentrate on getting more hardware stuff back again.
Those K&M stands are good quality stuff. I have a double braced X stand which I have modified to take 2 additional tiers

Great news Stephen, and good to see you on Bandcamp at last  8)

I Don't know of any of the free programmes, I use Illustrator and Photoshop occasionally. I also use this :-
which is very reasonably priced and has a free trial so you can try it out.

Finally got chance to listen to this, really nice atmosphere going on there, nice job.

As for the cover you could re position the text over the water that way it would show up clearer and you wouldn't have to change the colour, or add shadow to it.

The Komplete Kontrol keyboards will work with anything, they are optimised to work with NKS/Komplete instruments but not exclusively. Ridiculously expensive though!
Failing that pick yourself up a second hand Novation SL MK1 or MK2, but don't use automap, just make your own templates. these are their older controllers so should be able to pick one up at a reasonable price.  ;)

Apparently you will only be able to update/install products with Native Access if your computer is on line. There doesn't appear to be any offline option. Older operating systems and older NI products can still use Service Centre but products released with or after Komplete 11 will be supported exclusively by Native Access.
I emailed NI about this, as being one of many NI users, whose music computer never goes online, I was a bit annoyed at the possibility of not being able to update Kontakt and all my other NI products, unless I put my computer online. Still waiting a response  >:(

2 tracks posted on Bandcamp. These are not new tracks but they appeared on the Awakenings series of compilation albums in 2010 and 2011. They are free to download or you can donate if you wish

A couple of nice releases I've been listening to lately:

Jaja - Milky Way

Both of these releases are very meditative and calm.  Performed live.  Nice for late-night contemplation, especially Milky Way, which has long-form pieces spread over two discs.

Phobos - An October Evening

Also a live recording.  Hard to describe this one.  Moody and dark in places, bordering on dark ambient, with ebbs and flows, and occasional suggestions of melody.  Well done.


Cheers Forrest, glad it arrived ok. ;)

Welcome here as well Jon ;)

Thanks for listening Julio, appreciate your comments ;)

This doesn't really fit with the usual Phobos stuff, but I always wanted to do a track with some female voice in it. So it is still ambient, but not as dark and its short!!!

The disc set is now sold out. Download still available of course.
A very big thank you to everyone on here who has bought the album and particularly the physical discs. I am very grateful to all of you for your support.
Best Regards
