Ekstasis:: Yep, you are right, Lush is a very fine synth, looks great too. I've owned it for a few years. Great for layering and also for rhythmic/arp things.

Another fine sounding newer VA synth is the xils PolyKB. You might like this one. Just came out with v2. I'm tempted.




Video is of the earlier version.

Might as well buy the software and map a controller to it, lot cheaper than the hardware and sounds the same !

Scott :: These are the best I have ever used. Very sensitive (no pressure needed). Very immediate. Feel very accurate. And the side leds really help.

Murkok :: Dizziness -- grainy, noisy, pads/drones. Would be excellent sleep music.

I don't just do drone ambient, I work on rhythmic and experimental music too. The thing is it's a great controller for whatever you might want to do. Different paradigm than yer standard keyboard, but not so distant, just a few degrees more complex and deeply integrated with it's software. Flexible is probably the best word for it. As with the new Korg Electribe I bought recently, the demos all tend to be nothing but layered dance beats, but they can be put to many more purposes than that if they have the flexibility.

Was not intending this purchase, but could not resist.
The Maschine Jam controller is excellent. Well built, very flexible. Handsome !
But the big surprise if how good the Maschine software is that comes with it.
Remarkable !

Only Mike makes the decision on what forum software, and what plugins it has.
I'm just here to ban people and complain   ;)

Deep, monumental ambient journeys, in the style of the earlier "Elementa" from 2016.

It's the place to listen to the album.

Also available as a physical release at DataObscura:  DataObscura

Please do have a listen.
Comments always very welcome.

Enjoy !

It sounds good, but the price is indeed over the top. $15 for the digital   !!!

Let us know what it's like after you try it Julio.
I may have to give the demo a spin myself.

If I had to choose something with actual volume it would either be something like Gas: Pop ... very homogeneous music, or it would have to be a nature / field recording / sample piece that was mainly very ambient, low key, environmental and subtle.

Thanks for the info. Appreciate it.

Agreed on the Cage piece.
Anything else I'd tire of it it were the only piece I could hear. The Cage lets you concentrate on what's around you.

Sorry Niclas, it is not a matter of outright restriction, just a matter of being more appropriate to the forum direction of electro / ambient and not flooding it with material that would be better off elsewhere, especially when it gets no interest or discussion from members. It's also useful, for example, if people say a few words about the music they are playing, and why others might like it.

Ekstasis, why on earth do you keep putting up a style of music that does not fit the style of this community
and its users, and that gets no comments or interest from anyone, and that just keeps filling up page after page with videos.
Please, try to keep the interests of the people here in mind. It is pretty obvious what they are.
