In The Morning:
The Circular Ruins – Falling Into the Sky – Blue Oasis
(Nothing short of spectacular….it’s been while since I listened to the album and I have to admit “It Is Always to Late” is one of best songs of the year when it comes to ambient)

That's great to hear, Fern. Many thanks !

- Casino Versus Japan: Go Hawaii

Also today

Midi is a thing that can be routed many ways.

You could, for example, have the midi Out from the AN1x go straight to the Virus midi In, then the Virus midi Thru goes to Cubase if you want to record the midi. That way the Virus is sure to be playing at the same time as the AN1x. Should not be any latency. It simplifies things.

I don't use Cubase or a mac. So things may be different.

You should find that when you send midi time code from Cubase to the synths that they automatically sync to it. Otherwise there will be an internal or external sync option in the synths.  You can test the synths using an arpeggiator patch, which should speed/slow with different timings of Cubase.

Somewhere in Cubase is the option to send Midi Time Code  (MTC). You just have to make sure its going out the correct midisport ports.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Fascinating Effect Boxes
« on: October 03, 2008, 11:50:47 AM »
I have a Kaoss Pad 3 and use it a lot -- does stuff I haven't found elsewhere.
Plus it's just a ton of fun to play with.


Got me wondering what FX boxes people have that they really enjoy.
Especially boxes that do quirky, interesting things, or that you use in interesting and gratifying ways.

I'm only thinking of hardware here. Lets leave the crazy software world for another thread.

Now available from DataObscura:



The Winterhouse: Lost
Follow-up to the acclaimed debut album, Slow Promises, by the combined talents of
Robert Davies and Anthony Paul Kerby (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans). 
The drone mastery of Davies is overlaid with Kerby's melodic subtlety and sonic creativity
in an organic, addictive, and flowing musical narrative. Lost stands as another testament
to the power and depth of contemporary ambient music and its ability to open remarkable
sonic vistas and moving landscapes.

tracks/samples

- Lost
- Leaving
- Solitary Lives
- The Four Corners of Night
- Clearing

Available as either CD or Download encoded at 256kbs : DataObscura

A full track can be heard on the Radio page --  Here


Please have a listen.

Thanks !

Everything and Nothing / Re: Do you speak English with an accent?
« on: September 26, 2008, 01:40:30 PM »
I don't think there is an unaccented english.
And its natural, psychologically, to think of your personal accent as the norm.
But knowledge is comparison, and until you compare you don't see how your accent is just one among many, and not the standard.
In England there are varying accents about every 100 miles.
Of course, it good that we have the Queen ... so everyone can know how english really should be spoken.
 :P

I eventually grew bored with Hamonia Mundi,
and switched to

- Max Richter: Songs From Before
he knows what he's doing.

followed by
- B J Nilsen: The Short Night
which is always excellent (in the noise-drone arena).
