Short but subtle. And for a good cause.

Forrest, that was Julio who posted about the Halo Reverb.
Odd to hear it not working in Reaper. I use Reaper and have never had problems with any plugin.

Has anyone tried Adaptiverb ?

I really should give it a go.
Sounds like it has a huge cpu hit though.

Good to hear it, Julio.

And thanks, Pete.

Yep, I expect it will be a very good reverb for traditional purposes. Great price. Good to see filters and a widening control.
And that is a damn fine green !
The 7 seconds is indeed a limiting factor for deep ambiance. Freeze function would have been useful.

I'm still a convert to the Valhalla Room reverb at $50.

And the Eventide Blackhole was a great deal when it was on for $50 a while back.

Yep, interesting stuff. And looks great. Was delayed being released and apparently has problems in some hosts (Live), but I think its going to be really fun to play with. And will be excellent as a learning tool for anyone contemplating a physical modular. I will pick this up. Be good to see how it compares to NI's Reaktor 6, Blocks.

It made me buy Reaktor 6 for the Blocks modules.

Yep, I'd second the Valhalla reverbs. Excellent.

Yep, these things work both ways ... recording into and listening from a computer. You will get a better quality signal from it than using the built in audio output.

Of course, it depends how fussy you are about pristine sound quality.
And you won't notice any difference unless you have a good set of phones or speakers connected to it.

Looking at my Focusrite, you will see two Monitor Outputs on the back to connect to your amp or powered speakers. And you see two heaphone outputs on the front, with individual volume knobs.

Chris. Yes it is essentially a nice sound card, which is an analog to digital converter, and vice versa. Considerably better than the default one in the computer itself. The more you pay the better the converters and the more (and varied) ins and outs and other features it has. And yes, these days it is a separate box that connects to the computer by USB (Windows) or a Mac equivalent.

Even relatively inexpensive audio interfaces are damn good these days ... compared to 15 years ago.

Here is a neat Focusrite box that I currently use

I was listening to a lot of Cowboy Junkies today.
And a mixture of Pete Namlook things. Miss seeing new works.

A new work of mine.



Fictions and Poetics : Anatomy of Melancholy

This second release from Fictions and Poetics continues the explorations begun on
Our Last Days but develops into new creative realms. A pinnacle of this release is the
almost 18 minute deeply engaging, subtle and restrained title track Anatomy of Melancholy.
And yes, there are some Murcof-inspired pieces on this album.


It is a download only release, available through Bandcamp:

Anatomy of Melancholy on Bandcamp

Please do have a listen.
Comments very welcome.

Enjoy !

Really nice feel to the music/timbres.
Made me listen to Chromaticity and Optical Flood. Enjoyable stuff.
I can tell you are enjoying yourself.
