oo...sorry to hear about that - not nice.

I lost my previous Beyers when I got a feedback loop and had to choose what to turn down first - VS2480 or headphones....

I still have the beyers, but they buzz on one side if the bass frequencies hits a certain note or presence or tone.

Hope you get the amp fixed and replace the headphones with something that excites you.






had these 2 years now - still think they are fantastic. Though those Focals look very, very nice Julio

and still using them......though may need to get replacement foam pads - 25.

and the first is



https://serenffordd.bandcamp.com/album/aurora

music from two releases on Oophoi's Penumbra label in 2005 and 2006.

Recorded on very basic equipment - Aurora on a borrowed kids keyboard and Korg D-16 - no effects units or anything.
   Gateway and The Portal's Dreaming was on a technics keyboard and the same D-16.

Wow, over a year.....

It's been a year of change - what with moving house and friends dying it's been busy - lots of things I've been involved in have also changed...and I am just getting things back into gear for recording again.

Studio has been set up for a while and I've been tinkering with a piece that was on the go when we started looking for houses....uncertain what else I'll pick back up or whether to start with completely fresh.

I am working on getting some out of print and unreleased music onto Bandcamp

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: TC Electronics' reverbs

I have TCM3000 and Fireworx
Both do very different things - both have the ability to play around with settings and save as user patches.
I like them, not sure if they are cold and sterile (perhaps 'clean and clear' is another adjective) as I've made music that is both that and warm and fuzzy....
If I had the money I'd get a second M3000.

I've found that whatever reverb I use, I have favourite settings. I had Glaceverb as I like the potential for really shifting sounds around...and I tend to send all my sounds through a variety of manipulations....

Thanks. Really nice to get your take. I've noticed more ambient musicians use Lexicon, Eventide, and other brands and I was a bit curious what the consensus was on TC. I know Loren Nerell and Oophoi have used TC reverbs before but outside of that, I haven't seen too many ambient musicians talk about them.

I ended up ordering the M300 because I found one for pretty cheap. I know it's more of a budget version of the M3000 but it's probably still an upgrade over my Nanoverb at the very least.

Let us know what you think after you've played with it for a while.

and keep an eye on ebay - that's where I got my fireworx for 250.......

A number of Terry Pratchett discworld books found in a charity shop:
Soul Music
Mort
Thief of Time
Interesting Times
The Colour of Magic
Lords and ladies
Small Gods

I have 'Electronic Universe 1' and 'Fragrance'

I like both for very different reasons - the electronic universe is very spacey and fragrance manages to sound like the music perfumeries would have made....

Passing by Steve Roach - extended version of a track called (I think) The Passing Time from a compilation album years ago - loved the original and really enjoying this one

Robert Rich + Alio Die - Fissures

Probably considered a classic by now, but I only just heard it for the first time today. Great album. Distinctly different from the solo albums I have from either artist.


Great Album indeed 8)
