Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: The Modular Synthesizer Thread
« on: December 15, 2016, 09:57:21 AM »
Which reminds me that I'd love on of these Music Easels:

It being polyphonic gives it a big edge over the new Monologue.
Though the Monologue is a great little synth for the price.

83
No Virus or Waldorf, just 50/50 Native Instrument stuff and Korg Minilogue. Designed to keep things interesting/changing, as befits the modular underpinning, and certainly not in the slowly evolving ambient tradition.

New Bandcamp buys I've been enjoying

Bing Satellites :: Perpetual Motion  (really like the third, more rhythmic, track)
Richard Ginns :: Until the morning comes  (lot of field recordings, bit of guitar, kinda glitchy)

Many thanks for your earlier comments on the album, Forrest.
I appreciate it.

87

Some tracks the volume is a too low, meaning I have to raise the volume to the max, to listen within a normal level.


I dont think the album is too quiet, indeed I find the volume level normal. My albums are far quieter :)

Thanks for the comment JaJa.

Albums are mastered in relation to other tracks on the album. Some need to be quieter, some more dynamic, some louder than others.
Not all the same.

And some albums are delicate.

Then this style clearly not for you.

Though I did enjoy your: " I tried to reach for the ''handrail'', but it wasn't there."

Yes, its different.

Flesh only made sense and revealed its potential when I tried the demo myself.

It's related in some ways to the new Form synth from Komplete 11.
I'd buy that if they had a sale on it ... but alas.

Yep, just buying Flesh from Native Instruments.
It's a fascinating, if at first confusing, live sample instrument.

Many thanks, Forrest.
Ordering a physical copy always entitles you to a download code for the Bandcamp album too, if you want one.

I found that iLok was annoying when it was physical, but the software version of it is ok.

I just don't bother buying expensive/overpriced plugins, they will eventually be available at a reasonable reduced price.

There are some very good deals, not only at Eventide, in the next few days.
D16 Group have 40% off for a few days. I want their Sygmund delay.
Just bought iZotopes Trash 2 with free expansion packs and the DDLY delay at an excellent price.

Black Friday !!



96
Yes, many thanks for the responses.

Yep, time to pick up the Black Hole reverb if you don't have it, for $49
Though you can actually get it for $39 from PluginDiscounts.com

New on DataObscura



Julio Di Benedetto & Anthony Paul Kerby : Falling Into Place

Falling Into Place arose in the latter half of 2016 from a series of modular synthesizer
textures created by Julio. These pieces served as a basis for the treatments and additions
by Anthony. The resulting album is a rich and kaleidoscopic journey of moods and complex
flowing soundscapes that never cease to capture the listener's imagination.

The download version is available here on Bandcamp:  Falling Into Place
It's the place to hear the album.

Also available as a physical release at DataObscura:  DataObscura

Please do have a listen. Comments very welcome.

Enjoy !

Chris said : anything over 12$ in the digital realm is an automatic "no."

Same for me. It seems usurious. I don't want to promote it by buying it at that cost.
Bandcamp themselves actually suggests $7 for a full digital album.
