There are many ways of making great music.

Yes, I agree Scott. The pedals appear to fill the demands of outboard gear for a more drone and ambient project. And where I very much doubt the quality of the converters would cause any issues at all. At $500 you are saving a considerable amount of cash over the thousands needed for high end boxes that most likely do much more than you need and that may have many uses in a pro recording studio, but probably not in a more focused ambient only personal project.  Think what you could buy with the money you save !

I think the low end H9 is a bargain at $399, and you add the space and other algorithms you want as needed.

I really must try the Big Sky myself.

No one said don't post tracks. Just put them in your sub thread, in the right place (Forum Member Projects).
I though my reason was clear.

Your tracks are neither Podcasts, Mixes, or Music Sample Clips.

Julio

That Mordor NF1 looks really good.
I just checked out some details. It has a mighty fine set of osc types !!
How are you getting on with it ?

I agree with Pete.

And Niclas you really should not be filling this section with your individual personal tracks.
Can you imagine what this would be like if everyone started putting all their unfinished pieces in here!!!
Please create an Ekstasis sub thread here or in Member Projects and put them all in there.
That way it is your thread and you can put whatever you want in there, it is all kept together, and other people can visit it if they choose too.

Not saving for anything right now ...
but very recently bought a Korg Electribe, and an Arturia Keystep keyboard/sequencer to go with it.
They make a great pair to jam with and are very portable.
Electribe will run off batteries, and the Keystep will run from a mobile charger for phones.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: what analog synth should I buy ?
« on: December 27, 2016, 09:45:37 AM »
Seems you don't have a lot of choice in the price range for analogue, plus poly. Minilogue. You can stack voices for a richer Moog-like sound. The thing is very flexible.

Yep, putting analogue synths through a good reverb can really bring them alive for ambient. But that is also taking away their intrinsic analog feel to some extent.

I bought an MS2000 keyboard version when they first came out. Still have it, and use it. But I also have a Radias (rack) now. It's like an MS2000 on steroids. Very powerful synth.

Recently I've been playing with the Softube Modular. Damn, its fun. And a great way to learn about modulars in general ... without the huge price tag. Very analogue sounding. Very rich.

The question is too open. It needs a price range. It needs mono or poly.
It needs what make are you attracted to.
And really, as you are no doubt doing, you need to watch videos of these things to nail it down for style and timbre and functionality.
And try them if you can.
Where I buy I get a 30 day trial period for new gear, so I can return it if its not working for me as I'd hoped.
Second hand is obviously a problem, and you inherit any problem the gear has.

I'm with you Chris. I also liked Imaginal Symmetry quite a lot, but did not pick up Unfathomable Convergence.

Everything and Nothing / Season's Greetings

Season's greetings everyone.
Hope you are all having a great family time, relaxing, and finding time to enjoy some music.

Great that we have kept this communal space going for so many years.

ślfə : If you want to be a part of this community (and not be mistaken for yet another alter ego of Ekstasis) then introduce yourself properly (there is a section for that), and respond with care in threads. We are here to enjoy each other's company, enjoy the music, and have friendly and sometimes insightful conversation. Being anonymous only makes you questionable.

ślfə -- I don't think Julio is at all saying his work is the best thing since sliced bread ... he freely admits he's relatively new to modulars and it is all largely experimentation still. He's only saying that he was very pleased with the final result of the collaboration. I'm of course pleased with it too, or I wouldn't have released it.

ślfə -- please stop messing with this thread. You made your point way back. Leave it at that.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani: FRKWYS Vol. 13: Sunergy

Really like this modular blippy & noise goodness, with some fine Riley undertones.
