Maybe the old guys have too many albums on their shelves already,
and the new generation just aren't into collecting CDs that much.

Everything and Nothing / Re: One handed electric guitar?

You can hold a fret down with your index finger and pluck the note with one of the others. With electric guitars it doesn't take much of a pluck to get the note sounding, because of the amplification and sensitivity of the pickups. You can also get good stuff by hammering fingers down on frets to get the note. Sliding works well too.  All with one hand.

Perhaps the new standard player in cars will be for 12 inch vinyl   ;D

Everything and Nothing / New Cars and CD Players
« on: February 25, 2016, 08:02:45 PM »
Heard on the radio today that more and more new cars are being sold without CD players ...
that the CD player is becoming an option you must add on rather than a standard component of many new cars.
The times they are a-changin'.

The Eventide Space sounds like a very nice box.

I've been putting the Minilogue through the MeldaProduction stereo generator plugin then through the Valhalla Room reverb. Produces great results. Valhalla UberMod is also excellent across it. I have them in series.

Have grown to really like the Minilogue more and more.

Many thanks, Julio. Good to get some feedback.
I'll have that in the mail today.

Really like this performance from Mr. Richard Devine.....a true master, blending all the chaos that modulars can conger up with a solid sense of musicality.

I just can't get beyond all the wires!!!  There is no interface left.   ;)

Such a good quote, Julio.
It is what I'd call the 'electrical', rather than just electronic, nature of modulars that make them interesting and different.

A new work of mine.



Nunc Stans : Elementa

Elementa captures the grandeur and mysterious elemental force of monumental landscapes
and desolate spaces. But these are not just static drones, they are full of motion, sonic events
and curious meanderings. They place you at a beginning. The beginning ... where forces clash,
join, and collapse. Where chasms open and elements intermingle, and where the matter of
life is precipitated in mysterious conjunctions.


It is available on disk at DataObscura and as a download on Bandcamp.
Bandcamp is the best for previewing full tracks :

Elementa on Bandcamp

Please do have a listen.
Comments always very welcome.

Enjoy !

No, one sequence. But you can record knob movements into the sequence, which makes it special.

Korg Minilogue - this little synth has really grown on me for its sound and versatility.

I route it into my daw and feed its mono signal into a stereo generator to get some separation and widening.
Then add varying degrees of reverb depending what I'm after.

It's sounding really good !

I'm a fan of the AirFX unit. Use it a fair bit.
Surprised they dropped this concept ... it was so practical.
Alesis are like that.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Would you pay $1,000 for a CD?
« on: February 07, 2016, 07:29:56 PM »
Pushing up the expected price ?

Someone is asking for $1000,
maybe it is a good deal to get it at $500.

Crap like that.

Sound is more 'pretty' than gutsy. Generally bright. But is very flexible, easy to use and get useful new sounds from.
Nice layout. Lots of controls. Immediate.
The recordable sequencer is great. Knobs are solid. Little oscilloscope is very handy.
Keyboard small and toy-like, but playable.
Metal top, but plastic base. The thing is light weight.

One complaint I have about the Minilogue is that we have a two osc, 4 voice synth that is not stereo.
No panning. Mono main out.
