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.

New on DataObscura

Robert Davies : Afterlight

Afterlight is a brilliant and consistent new release from the master of pastoral ambient.
Each track situates the listener in intimate communion with a nature that is rich with details
and that builds subtle yet very powerful atmospheres. The music is both lush and relaxing,
and thoroughly absorbing. The experience is ultimately one of reverie, and is transcendent
in its appeal.

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

Also available as a physical release at DataObscura:  DataObscura

Please do have a listen.

Enjoy !

That ASC release does sound good, Chris.
You say the CD price is high ... but $14 US for the digital is also out of the ballpark for a single release.

They were just emulations, not the real things.
And obviously they are now deep into making hardware synths. Seem to be doing a good job.

Just a note. I think the Arturia soft synths are very usable now that we have ver 3 with larger, re-sizable GUIs and better preset management. You can actually dig into them much more easily. The Matrix is great. The Solina is fun. I've been enjoying most of them. Yep, there are similarities in sound. But there is considerable variety in interfaces, structures, and filters and modulation possibilities. I like 'em.

Chris ... I've been playing Obduction too. It is indeed a great game.
Gets more and more complex and challenging as you get further into it.
Fascinating worlds.

Engrossing puzzle game. Great visuals. Good ambient vibe. Tony Gerber new age soundtrack.
Cheap. Available on Steam. Worth a look.

Dark Matter is good. Sci-fi.

One thing is for sure ... analog synths have no hope of emulating what todays digital synths can do.

What about sample based soft synths ?

Think I'd go for this neat looking semi if I were to buy another analog.
It has some depth and a nice design:

Anyone here given it a try? Scott M2 ?  It's made in Toronto.

Incredibly small. And inexpensive. And a surprisingly good sound ... if you are into that thing.  :o

It's looking really mean down there, judging from Haiti, Cuba, and now the Bahamas!
Wishing you all the best, Julio.

Short but subtle. And for a good cause.

Forrest, that was Julio who posted about the Halo Reverb.
Odd to hear it not working in Reaper. I use Reaper and have never had problems with any plugin.

Has anyone tried Adaptiverb ?

I really should give it a go.
Sounds like it has a huge cpu hit though.

Good to hear it, Julio.

And thanks, Pete.

Yep, I expect it will be a very good reverb for traditional purposes. Great price. Good to see filters and a widening control.
And that is a damn fine green !
The 7 seconds is indeed a limiting factor for deep ambiance. Freeze function would have been useful.

I'm still a convert to the Valhalla Room reverb at $50.

And the Eventide Blackhole was a great deal when it was on for $50 a while back.

Yep, interesting stuff. And looks great. Was delayed being released and apparently has problems in some hosts (Live), but I think its going to be really fun to play with. And will be excellent as a learning tool for anyone contemplating a physical modular. I will pick this up. Be good to see how it compares to NI's Reaktor 6, Blocks.
