Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: The Downside of Software
« on: June 14, 2012, 12:46:49 AM »

First, why doesn't anybody make a general patch editor and librarian app for synthesizers any more? Unisyn was great, and Sound Diver wasn't bad. Can't some developer come up with a framework for people to develop and share their own patch editor interfaces? They wouldn't even have to individually support each synth... users would do that, using the framework, and could freely share the profiles.


Regarding patch editor/ librarians I think Midiquest is still available, for Mac and PC

Yes you will need effects and as John says recording software (DAW) that will allow you to record audio, as the Ultranova is monotimbral ie one sound at a time, so you would need to record the audio from the Ultra and then record audio from it again using a different sound,  etc etc, or buy more synths of course, or with recording software it opens up the world of VSTi, and there are some very good free soft synths out there.

It really depends on what you want to do, just learn to play, learn about synthesis or both.
The synths in the video are I think,  (Left keyboard stand)Roland D50 digital synth discontinued, Novation Supernova or Supernova 2, again discontinued, (Right Keyboard stand) Supernova again I think and Roland X6 Workstation again discontinued.
The differences are the D50 is monotimbral, meaning one sound at a time and a maximum of 16 note polyphonic
The Supernovas are 8 part multitimbral which means up to 8 different sounds at once and depending which version from 20 to 48 note polyphonic. These are great for tweaking sounds in real time.
The Roland X6 is a workstation meaning it can be used to compose complete songs, so it has a built in sequencer, max 128 note poly, 16 part multitimbral, ths model is also capable of sampling.
Feel free to pm me if you need any more info/help

Zebra is great, Kontakt is amazing, you should also check out vsti from HG Fortune, there are some great synths on his web site
http://www.hgf-synthesizer.de/
he provides free versions of most of his pro stuff, usual restriction is just reduced polyphony, so you can try them out and decide if you want to go for the pro version.

The new album from Phobos - Live On Earth (Live at Awakenings) has been released.
It is available as a high quality download in FLAC, 320 mp3, etc, all artwork plus equipment list, index list, and a little about the performance/music are included in PDF format with the download.

It is also available as a physical product, Taiyo Yuden CDr, in a standard jewel case, with 4 page colour booklet, clear tray and 2 sided colour tray insert. Buying the physical product also entitles you to immediate download of the digital files.

The album is available from:
http://phobos.bandcamp.com/album/live-on-earth-live-at-awakenings
where you can listen to a stream of the whole album(albeit in low quality)



Thanks for listening

Incidently Mobineko will press 100 CDs from a glass master, in 4 panel Digipacks, you provide your own artwork for 450($700), They include the Digipaks free saving an additional 210($330) but for people who sell a lot less than 100 it is still not cost effective



Have you seen any examples of Mobineko's products? I've heard mixed reports as far as quality.

Hi Mike,
No unfortunately I haven't seen any CDs manufactured by them, yes there are mixed reports as for quality and it is a little worrying considering the high unit cost if you go for the 100 option = 4.50 per disc ($7 approx). So if they sold for 10 each you would need to sell 45 to break even, if you paid someone to do your artwork your probably going to have to sell them all, and that could be a long process, and if there are quality issues, then absolute nightmare. At least doing your own CDR if it goes bad then I can replace it, its in my control, and it is instant for the purchaser, which is very important, as they don't want to be messed about to-ing and fro-ing between artist and manufacturer, they just want to listen to the music they have bought, and hopefully be able to listen to it for many years.

As an artist who releases CDR and who sell less than 100:-
For my CDR releases I use Taiyo Yuden discs, which are supposed to be very reliable, if anyone knows of any other more reliable please let me know, so I try very hard to make the releases as high quality as possible, fullsize jewel cases, colour booklets,tray cards etc,as mentioned in earlier posts.
I will also guarantee the CDR so if the disc decides to stop playing because it has "gone bad" I will replace the disc completely free, including shipping it to you, whether you have had it 1 year or 10 years plus, in fact for as long as I remain on this planet I will offer that guarantee. All you need to do is contact me.
Question:-
Does guaranteeing a free replacement disc make a difference to you guys out there who don't really buy CDR for the fear of them going bad?

Oophoi and Faryus - Forgotten Rituals



what's this one like Dave?

Have you listened to MG's Dissolution?

Deep, dark and totally absorbing, nice package too, A5 folded card with a smaller card inside for each of the three tracks. Nice collectors item.

Yes I have Dissolution by Mathias Grassow, I like him a lot and his collabs with Tomas Weiss
