Thanks for the heads up on this, trying out the demo at the moment, very impressive at the moment, and obviously a bargain at the price, I think I will probably get this, even if it means having another dongle sticking out of my computer.

Huh???  I could not find anything on his website about this, and googling Earth Turtle/MSP gave no results except a link to his website, where again I found nothing about this.  Please let me know cuz if I get this from Groove it'll cost twice as much.  Thanks!!
click on the album cover and it opens abox with purchase details for the CD, or click on the office stock link

[Phobos, I think you're the only one here who has mentioned Type O Negative, in my top five all-time bands.  Miss these guys so much after Peter's death and subsequent/inevitable end of their career.  Won't be anyone like them probably ever.

Type O Negative were a great band, and had some really brilliant songs, and also some of their cover versions are outstanding, for example their version of Black Sabbaths Paranoid takes the song to a whole new level.
As disappointing as it is I am kind of happy that they are not going to carry on, unlike some other bands I could mention, as that in my opinion would have been disrespectfull to Pete, after all Pete was Type O Negative.

Motorhead were one of my favourite bands from my younger years. even though he led that lifestyle, you kind of thought he would just go on forever. Lemmy wouldn't want to rest in peace, he would rather have it fast and loud! A very great loss to the rock world.

Wow!  Julio, thank you so much. I am really glad you are enjoying the album and DVD.  :)

A couple of reviews of An October Evening, second one is in German, I used Google translate to get an idea of what it said.

Listening to the bandcamp stream of this, utterly beautiful. Magnificent work.

Would really love to get the CD , however having checked the postage scenario to the UK on the projekt site it is looking like $10 plus maybe another $10-$15 for the EMS. Anyone confirm the postage story to UK for projekt? I will email them in a bit.

If I can't get a UK supplier I will buy the download Forest. Really is something special.

Groove Unlimited have a few of Forests' albums in stock, they may add the new disc at some point.

Troum/Yen Pox - Mnemonic Induction

I think it is quite a neat little feature. Artist can choose on how much discount. Fans still have the option just to buy only one release in the normal way, and artists as well as turning the feature on can also turn it off. It only applies to digital product.
As Bandcamp targets fans who have already purchased your items then I can see your point Julio, so unless artists advertise their discounts elswhere on the net, it probably isn't going to attract any new fans. However I still think its a neat feature, and no-one else is doing it. Incidently I turned the feature on, and offer 50% discount. :)

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Best DAW for Ambient Music 2015
« on: November 17, 2015, 06:23:21 AM »
I don't think there is a specific DAW which is best for ambient. What one person finds best for them isn't neccessarily going to be best for you. I think it needs to meet your requirements of how you want to work and what you want it to do for you, so it is what is best for you to enable you to have a positive workflow.

I am only experienced with Cubase and I find it great for me and the way I work. Of the others you mention, I believe Reason is a self contained programme, that being you can't use third party VSTi or plug ins. Althought you can use it with a DAW using the Rewire function I believe.

From what I hear about Live, isn't it more loop based, as for the others, Logic and FL, I know nothing about these.

I would say get yourself a good keyboard controller with plenty of knobs to tweak the controls on your vsti, Novation do some good ones, and Akai have just released some new ones. I would use a seperate controller for DAW control and mixing, something like the Novation SL mk2, or similar.  If you intend to record stuff to release, you will need an audio interface, to get the best possible sound recorded, there are many of those to choose from, Tascam, Focusrite, Presonus, M- Audio, to name a few, all make audio interfaces.

PC or Mac, each to there own, I suppose each has it's advantages and disadvantages, boils down to personal preference. I use PC, don't think I would change to a Mac now, And I never use my music computer on the internet.

It would be nice to know what you end up with, but most important of all is that you enjoy creating with the tools you have chosen, oh and welcome to the forum  :)
