Fortitude series 2.
After the excellent first series I have been eagerly awaiting this shows return. Although there are still the odd surprise here and there, it isn't as good as the first series, and I can't help feeling a little bit disappointed. The ending sort of hints at a third series but I don't find myself feeling as eager for that one as I did after the end of the first series. Still worth watching though, for those who have seen series one.

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

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

1 copy left :)

Maybe Hypnos needs a Bandcamp page :)

It isn't just Hypnos Forum that is quiet, a couple of the others I am members of, are as well. It seems to be a time of the year thing, being summer and all that, certainly in the UK we don't get that many warm nights to be able to sit out in the garden, so it is best to take advantage when you can. I also think Facebook has taken over from most forums, there are many different and specific ambient music groups on there that you can join if you so wish. I tend to keep my presence on there strictly musical, and don't get involved in anything political or the general shit that Facebook seems to be well known for.

Another Sun, A Gradual Awakening and Summerland are still amongst my personal favourites.

There are just 2 copies of this 2 disc set left.

You don't have to use a dongle, it will work with the software iLok licence manager.

And yep, it is well worth the $49.
So it will work just with the licence manager installed even if my computer doesn't connect to the internet, as my music computer doesn't get connected to the net, my everyday laptop which does connect to the net is what I am using the demo on at the moment. I thought I would need an iLok dongle to transfer the licence from one computer to another.
