I listened to this last night, enjoyed it a lot. 8)

and once the reads go up you'll find more people checking things out 8).

I would suspect not, but I've not had the chance to listen to it.....

As an aside - the Somnium tracks on this disc are now all uncompressed audio.

Mine arrived yesterday - I saw it briefly (long enough to check it was not damaged etc) before Glenys whisked it away to be wrapped until Christmas.....

I have tended to put up the whole thing to listen to - but the thought of making some bonus tracks is a very nice idea.

I actually like knowing that people are listening to the music, and some go on to buy.

I'm not in the position of having large 'sales' to protect....

some acoustic stuff here:

[...] I realized that the EQ was all the time bypassed...
Been there, done that.  ;D
me too.

I prefer the 24 bit myself and I think my VS2480 is set up for 96K....

I worked in British Telecoms as a youngster and we had to send test tones down the lines - we used to play around and I could always hear higher frequencies than anyone else (whether this would still be true after time spent in Motorhead bass bins is another matter).

I have the korg MR1 with its  1-bit/2.8 MHz set up - the sound quality is amazing - I seem to remember it being said that this is SACD technology and quality....SACD is considered better quality than CD - is that reality?

I prefer to record in as good quality as possible and work down. I find the higher sampling rates allow more subtlety as well as dynamics in my sounds and music - I know that the difference is much more obvious at lower rates, where things like stereo image can be lessened and sounds become more muddy..

Stunning studio Loren, but you forgot to mention the sticks and the goat hoof rattle.....what other acoustic elements do you have?

Was on holiday recently - not as much music listened to as I'd like!

Oophoi - Dreams (on repeat)
Caul - White Darkness
Steve Roach - Bloodmoon Rising
Lustmord - dark places of the earth
Synaesthesia - (parts of desideratum)

The Silver / Silver CDR's can look very similar to the pressed CD's - usually there is a lck of anything in the centre ring.

I've used them for a number of years, using simple thermal printing for just artist name and album title on them. I've not had any feedback of problems with either quality or longevity as yet.....

My understanding is that CDR's with sticky labels on them tend to degrade as the glue attacks the top layer. Which is why I don't use them.

I was also advised, hopefully accurately, to burn a CDR at half the maximum rate as this minimises risks of technical problems.

I like being here a lot- Had not noticed it becoming 'old fashioned', but then I am too old fashioned to have kept up enough with that sort of thing to know when it is 'old' or 'hot'

I do like the variety and the depth of experience and knowledge that I can reach out to here.

I also like the way the conversations keep going - too many forums have the dreaded [like] button that just kills the interaction, I'm interested in what others think and how our comments affect how each of us may think.


Most 'social media' is, for me, too short and vapid to have any sense of real connection.

and a further update - one really big difference is that the music is no longer 'contained' by the speakers. I no longer hear the speakers, just a panorama of sound laid out in front of me - stunning.... 8) ;D
