Both Alchemy and Rapture are very good recommendations.

I used Rapture until buying Alchemy and never went back as I prefer the interface - but I was just talking to Jamie about spending some time with Rapture again.

BTW - there's an ORB/David Gilmour album "Metallic Spheres" that has a special edition with an alternate version/mix of the album in "360 sound" (some kind of alt binaural) but unfortunately I don't hear much difference - though I love having two distinct versions of the album. Also BTW it's my fave ORB album in quite a while.

I'd be interested in this. I'd be evern more interested in an actual surround mix on DVD/BluRay/SACD/whatever!

What a nice discussion. Thanks! (absolutely sincere.)

Don't look at this app as a musician's  tool or as a toy. This is a Steve Roach long-form atmospheric piece.

As opposed to a CD, you can adjust the mix & panning of the 5 stereo stems if you choose - or just pick a mix from the menu or let the parts randomly mix themselves. It's really just a different way to experience a long-form track - with the option to control the mix.

Another aspect to consider is that due to the crazy-low app pricing "standards" these cost only $3-$5 each (with no shipping costs) for a long track.

I just bought the new one yesterday and from limited listening, I think it's my fave from the series so far.

Western Digital makes (not pocket sized) small 1T USB3 hard drives which you could fill up and leave at work.
They're fantastic for throwing in your suitcase when you go to work on music at someone else's studio too.

I'm very fond of many Roland digital synths - especially the JD-990, though I certainly use its internal effects. Access to both good analog and digital intruments is the very best IMO - and, of course, ones that you feel a special relationship with.

Sorry to strike a future blow to your bank account man, but apparently they've discovered that “triple clocking” takes this box all the way to 100% perfection!

I'm fond of "Chloe and the Pirates" from Six - edging towards ambient!

It's for making the sound warmer and less digital sounding - but you can also crank it up for a really hot signal. Yeah, that's it.

Congrats on scoring your interface! One more piece in place for you.

OK - I'm not a Vangelis keener - but this video of him playing his setup has some serious "wow" factor.
Wait a minute or two for him to finish his prep on whateverthehellthosemodulesare.

Immersion - Have you tried Lush within a host yet - or strictly in standalone mode?
(The host may not "know" how Lush is approaching multiple cores and clicks may occur.)

I did see on their site that a recent update for Lush allows it to run using two cores now. I use Bidule so that may not help me there but it would definitely help in a stand-alone mode.

Thanks APK. Judging from the demos, Lush-101 has a great analog sound. When I look around for reviews there's always mention about the large CPU needs. Probably great for the studio but (like Iris) touchy for multi-synth live use. Still tempting...

This is a good example where having so many sonic options becomes a barrier to finishing your music!

Loren, the piece and your music are deep and moving. I had no problem voting from Canada.
