Mirage - Klaus Schulze
Memories compiled - Vidna Obmana
Echoes of the Ancient Forest - Carolyn Hillier

Good music is good music - whether short or long.

I do like long tracks that I can drift off with and into - but I enjoy listening to short tracks as well.

There is a pressure of time with everything that needs to be done so I don't get to listen to whole albums as much as I'd like to.

Seren, I'II check out your album, we may be thinking on similiar lines. I take it you must be pretty adept to use an umarked (fret markers) fretless ! 

Yep - I'm an expert me! ! ! :o - err, no, I play around with it until It's tuned with a sound I like to begin with and then go by ear.....

I've been in the process of moving and only wired up the studio in it's new home over the weekend so yet to get stuck into anything.

I've had to buy a new computer (PC was on last legs) and get new music software (Sonar Artist) as my Sonar 5 would not run on windows 10....

...a salutary lesson for everyone - never throw away your old software discs - sometimes they contain things no longer available (in this instance a Lexicon reverb plug in....) I'm thinking of getting it off ebay to get the reverb back.....

Back to the bass - enjoy and let us know how it goes.

Hi Pete - nice looking bass, you should really enjoy coaxing sounds out of it.

Here is mine....I find it really nice for making ambient music

can be heard on:

I need to give Expanding Horizons another listen

You will love Sonar...
I am currently a Sonar Platinum user myself right now.....if you just bought it recently, don't forget to take advantage of the lifetime upgrade they are about to announce on June 1.:)

I loved the sonar I had - but it was too old to run on a new computer.

Excellent news re the lifetime upgrade - our internet was only just sorted out yesterday (31st May) so have yet to download and install.

I've ended up buying sonar artist, just waiting for internet to be sorted at our new house so I can install it - been waiting since beginning of May....

Tomita - The Planets.
   Definitely an influence on me - especially in the sound/noise sections.
   I used to listen to it under the influence and the more ethereal sections still sound the same to me - very psychedelic and like an aural Bridget Riley Picture.
   I still find the complexity of the both the recording and individual sounds amazing given it was recorded (I think) in 1976.

...and there is no reason why you can't go outside the box and get a dedicated recording set up - just check your budget and ebay etc.....(I don't use my computer for recording...)

if you want to stay in the computer you would need to consider what recording software to purchase.

I'm not vastly experienced with the different ones out there. I was using sonar cakewalk for working on sounds after recording but am waiting for internet installation in a new house before I can download Sonar Artist - the up to date version (and 79)

I was always gobsmacked by 'The Planets' - creating that complexity of sound from monosynths that were hard to keep in tune and analogue recording without mid etc was a huge achievement.

I will listen to it again very soon

Just heard that Tomita has died - this is another one of those that really hits hard, I remember getting The Planets as a youngster.  :'(

I like this album too  well worth a listen. 8)
