Spyra: Orphan Waves (excellent, if you like his old-school style. Very Pink Floyd in places.)

What I often look and hope for is more "musicality" in ambient music. And the trend (if there is one) towards melody and structure is a good sign. And interestingly, the use of acoustic instruments is often another sign of musicality, of people who can actually play musical instruments and have a musical sensibility and not just a technological ability. I do appreciate the technological side, but a needed musicality is what I find missing in a lot of electro-ambient music ... music that sounds too much alike, and too reliant on just stringing predictable samples together or applying big effects rather than playing anything with some musical and expressive expertise.

Think of Eno.

Then you can be excused, Loren.
Unless you also have a poster of Dean Martin on another wall !

I've noticed a lot of people in this thread (and in past "gear shot" type threads) - not everyone, but many people have a tendency towards indian, native american, aboriginal, african, etc... types of decorations - whether it's rugs, blankets, wall hangings or artwork, masks, etc...   Of course, quite a few drums tossed in as well which are both functional and ornamental... :)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems to be basically an American sort of new age / native association thing ?
I don't see it in European studio shots.

This evening

- Spyra: Headphone Concert   (just the first long track ... love it. Tres Berlin, but well played.)

Yep, I liked that Presonus box. Lots of decent mic-pres, if thats your thing.
And I really go for having line inputs on the front for quick swapping.
If you don't need the qualities and extras of an RME
I think this and the Saffire models are great for the money.
Hope it works well for you.
