Yep, its on OLN in the morning live (about half the day's race), and repeated in the evening again (with some additions).
There are lots of commercials (annoying for sure), but they do pack them in early so they can show the final stretch commercial free.
Haven't checked for a streaming feed ... there are usually some illegal ones you can find though.

Ah, biking through the Alps, great!  Good for you!

Couple of good, grainy, drone ambient works.

Anyone else watching / following the race this year.

I think its great, not only for the cycling but also the tour around the towns and landscapes of France.

Komplete is just too much stuff, John. You will be overwhelmed. Whittle it down to just a couple a things.

Massive and FM8 --- wickedly powerful combo.

Or maybe just get Reaktor if you want to fiddle more and download hundreds of user creations for it (also stifling overload, but fun).

And yes, a new computer must be added to the bill.

On the other hand you could save money and get Reason.

Seems to be a good quality recording.
Haven't heard it yet.

Weigl & Hoffmann: Elevate

Big fan of Weigl's poetic songs and rhythms.

I don't work out as much, but I have the sculpted physique of a Greek god, so I can afford to scale back a little!

Yeah, but soon it will be the physique of lesser-known Roman god, and a little later the physique of a Medieval peasant  ;)

Off The Sky: The Geist Cycles  (Databloem 2007)

Damn, I'd forgotten (or not quite realised) how good this album is.

A fascinating melange of Corder's treated guitar and quirky mixing, with various vibes, percussion, and strings artfully tossed into the mix. Totally unpredictable, very listenable, with a microsound-ish / glitchy feel, but a jazzy undercurrent. Love it.

Yep, it was amiable. Dennis wanted to open a more general Databloem store. But I will email you soon.

Thanks Joe !

I've been mainly been enjoying a few Biosphere releases the past couple of days.

Plus Saul Stokes "Vast" -- entrancing compositions, and that signature Stokes sound to everything -- analog, with the melodic content wedded to the rhythmic. Great stuff.

Your setup sorta sounds correct ... assuming the UA-25 is connected to the computer by USB and the drivers are installed.

You might try by-passing the Mixer entirely and make sure the signal from the Yamaha goes through the UA-25 and gets to Cubase ok (via USB). So put the Yamaha Outs into the UA-25 inputs and try that.

That UA-25 looks like a single stereo converter, and as that is the only input to your computer you won't be able to have the Yamaha and Virus on separate channels. You would have to connect the Virus and the Yamaha to 1/2 and 3/4 on the Mixer, but the output of them would be mixed down to one stereo channel and passed to the UA-25, then to the computer. To keep the Yam and Virus separate you'd need to have a converter box with more INs/OUTs than the UA-25.

On the issue of Cubase not recording the Yamaha audio ... check through the computer/Cubase routing. Is Cubase seeing the UA-25 USB input (presumably Asio) -- I don't use Cubase, but you want to make sure the audio input is activated in its setup so that it sees the UA-25. Then make sure the track you want to record on in CUbase has the UA-25 1/2 (or USB ... whatever they call it) as its input.

Just a few thoughts.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Favourite dramatic piece of music

My favourite piece of music that gives me shivers every time?  Vaughan Williams' "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis".
It's curious though.  I've listened to a lot of Thomas Tallis and none of it sounds like this piece, so I don't know what the deal is with that.

Yes, certainly one of my favourite classical pieces too. Beautiful and moving.

But for sheer dramatic (and emotive) import I'd go for Maurice Duruflé's Requiem. Its beautiful and sublime. Also classical of course.

Just listening to The Circular Ruins - Falling Into The Sky  :)

Sounds good as all of Anthony's work. Most ambient producers who come out with a lot of music tend to produce some that disappoint me but I'm yet to find anything from this guy that I don't love.

Good to hear it, abasio.
Thanks !

And welcome to the Forum.

Now that I have it, I also think Kontinuum is a fine release. Really like it.

I thought the 2005 Moonlake was well done ... though not always to my taste.

And many of the Dark Side releases with Namlook have great tracks on them.

I think he's still doing ok    8)

Anglican: There was some talk of Landmass recently in the Non-Hypnos Artists and Labels section of the forum, in a Roach thread.
Maybe take a look in there.

Great to hear you have a new sgnl_fltr out, Danny.
I'll have to pick up a copy.

Here is a link to the Databloem page, which has samples:
