Yep, that Replika-XT delay looks like a worthy improvement to the original. I was tempted, but went for the D16 Group Sigmund instead.
Ubermod is a real chameleon. Terrific plugin.

Yep, yours looks like a watch. The Apple things looks like a kids toy on your wrist.

Damn, that's a BIG watch.  :)

Unfortunately I didn't buy anything that was not a music plugin or synth.

Flesh only made sense and revealed its potential when I tried the demo myself.

It's related in some ways to the new Form synth from Komplete 11.
I'd buy that if they had a sale on it ... but alas.

Yep, just buying Flesh from Native Instruments.
It's a fascinating, if at first confusing, live sample instrument.

Many thanks, Forrest.
Ordering a physical copy always entitles you to a download code for the Bandcamp album too, if you want one.

I found that iLok was annoying when it was physical, but the software version of it is ok.

I just don't bother buying expensive/overpriced plugins, they will eventually be available at a reasonable reduced price.

There are some very good deals, not only at Eventide, in the next few days.
D16 Group have 40% off for a few days. I want their Sygmund delay.
Just bought iZotopes Trash 2 with free expansion packs and the DDLY delay at an excellent price.

Black Friday !!

Yes, many thanks for the responses.

Yep, time to pick up the Black Hole reverb if you don't have it, for $49
Though you can actually get it for $39 from PluginDiscounts.com

Julio Di Benedetto & Anthony Paul Kerby : Falling Into Place

Falling Into Place arose in the latter half of 2016 from a series of modular synthesizer
textures created by Julio. These pieces served as a basis for the treatments and additions
by Anthony. The resulting album is a rich and kaleidoscopic journey of moods and complex
flowing soundscapes that never cease to capture the listener's imagination.

The download version is available here on Bandcamp:  Falling Into Place
It's the place to hear the album.

Also available as a physical release at DataObscura:  DataObscura

Please do have a listen. Comments very welcome.

Enjoy !

Chris said : anything over 12$ in the digital realm is an automatic "no."

Same for me. It seems usurious. I don't want to promote it by buying it at that cost.
Bandcamp themselves actually suggests $7 for a full digital album.

New on DataObscura



Robert Davies : Afterlight

Afterlight is a brilliant and consistent new release from the master of pastoral ambient.
Each track situates the listener in intimate communion with a nature that is rich with details
and that builds subtle yet very powerful atmospheres. The music is both lush and relaxing,
and thoroughly absorbing. The experience is ultimately one of reverie, and is transcendent
in its appeal.

The download version is available here on Bandcamp:  Afterlight
It's the place to hear the album.

Also available as a physical release at DataObscura:  DataObscura

Please do have a listen.

That ASC release does sound good, Chris.
You say the CD price is high ... but $14 US for the digital is also out of the ballpark for a single release.

They were just emulations, not the real things.
And obviously they are now deep into making hardware synths. Seem to be doing a good job.

Just a note. I think the Arturia soft synths are very usable now that we have ver 3 with larger, re-sizable GUIs and better preset management. You can actually dig into them much more easily. The Matrix is great. The Solina is fun. I've been enjoying most of them. Yep, there are similarities in sound. But there is considerable variety in interfaces, structures, and filters and modulation possibilities. I like 'em.
