And what is your point?  My point is that your comment to Pete was a bit patronizing.  With your last comment, maybe you should quit while your'e behind... ???

Forrest

Um, quit what?

I was simply comparing the dynamics of a real instrument that reacts with the laws of physics in the hand of a great ambient music artist, Robert Rich...

So please stay on topic.

See the differences between your toy app and a real instument:

I figured that listening the first minutes is enough, because there's no real change or dynamics in the rest of the tracks.

I just wish you added more variation, because the start was really good.

(People do amazing things on even an iPhone screen.

Well I'm not an apple supporter, and I think making music on an ipad with my butt sitting on a coffee shop chair is a not a step forward, but if you think it makes you look cool, then go ahead :)
This is bringing back a memory of when I travelled by bus from Ottawa to Toronto back in the seventies to buy a Synthi-AKS. I remember waiting in the lineup at the bus station to return to Ottawa, thrilled to be carrying my new modular synth home and knowing that outsiders saw only a young man with a briefcase. Cheers!

I would be happy with that Synthi-AKS, such a lively machine. So sad that nowadays people invest in this disposable shit devices. I don't even use a phone, if people want to contact me, send me a letter or meet me in person.

This album is repetitive and boring almost amateur, I just enjoyed some pads he threw under those samey-samey sequences...I didn't recognized Steve Roach until some of the aforementioned pads came up. This album could be made by some random guy with a long beard and tattoos, twiddling knobs on youtube.

Below average I must say, I see unknown people doing more interesting stuff with modulars, more, than this album has to offer, so sad he's losing steam :(

Maybe it has to do with Synthesizers.com modulars, who uses that piece of crap anyway?

He should definitely invest in some proper MOS-LAB modulars..

Look at the difference:

Reminds me of the digital v. analog flame wars of yesteryear.  Why live in a binary universe?

iOS sounds like an interesting platform for trying out different approaches to sound generation, like some of the Jordan Rudess apps.

The problem is when you want to reproduce old circuits with new technology...

Interesting video regarding using an iPad as a mobile recording set-up:



..........

Hint number one: 10,500 usd MM27 Barefoots.

Hint number two: Plenty of outboard gear.

Hint number three: Dual 30 inch monitors.

He can say whatever he wants about Auria, in the end of the day we all know where he records.

I feel that ambient made with these gadgets turns anything into disposable music.

1. No warmth, no nostalgia from old soundbanks (Why Steve Roach still utilizes the Emu, Oberheim, Nord Lead, Wavestation?) and not an ipad?

2. Hardware is made as a whole, including the DAC character, I doubt anything software for ipad will survive 30 + years, back to 1. (repeat often).

3. Larger screen is 15 inches up, anything smaller for any kind of production is counterproductive.

I feel like I'm back in the 80s  :-[

IMO synth sound evolution has been made backwards. For some reason the ''Quiet Music'' by Steve Roach is so damn good, Oberheim OB8 if I'm not mistaken.

Your link is broken!

Yeah that demo is a joke. Calling it Matrix 12 is a crime...

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.

You didn't processed the sound enough, according to Mr Tomas Weiss, plugins are good enough in this genre of music.

Using his own words:

"We are talking here about Ambient music which mostly is based on an embedded and often blurred bed of sounds and tones".

I say it again...You are not in the little gear category :)

You can buy a really nice car here in Europe with just those 2 synths.

Sure you don't have plenty of 500usd synths and I don't see the usual suspects, wavestation, jd-800, waldorfs etc.
What happened to the Juno-60? That was a huge loss IMO. A synth with great warmth.

I was going to purchase one of those 250 euros furman boxes, but now...

My house is fully grounded but I still listen to some background noise in some machines (max volume) Expecially when they aren't plugged in the same power strip.

Well I think I might be charged as guilty, because when I moved from the city to the countryside, ambient music made so much sense...

The problem it's when you force imagery in a video, sometimes it just violates the track.

...Because for me ambient it's a mind expanding music, it's the soundtrack of my life. A forum like this should exist to give a nice shelter to all people with the same view about the world and this music.

I don't care and I despise politics, tv, newspapers, football, the society in general. I'm interested in the mysteries of life, nature, the cosmos and microcosmos and above all the art we produce that makes us special above all common and rule driven humans.

I'm more interested in a shadow cast by a tree, or the rustling of leaves, than listening to a person talking about ''really important things about society.''

An ambient forum IMO should be about ambient, we have everything and nothing elsewhere if we want it.
