you're welcome Loren;
The classic "In Course of Time" might see a factory-pressed cd release in the near furture...

Some recent Bandcamp purchases...

Dylan Howe - SUBTERRANEAN - New Designs On Bowie's Berlin  -  Jazz versions of Bowie's Berlin instrumentals.  Nice.

tonepoet - Headspace - excellent guitar-based ambient.

eternell - Kalimba Ambience  -  pretty ambient tunes all based on kalimba recordings.  Thanks for the heads up, Castleview.

Deep Sea Diver - Always Wating EP  -  not ambient but very good indie music.  I loved their first album and was hoping for a new release but this ep will have to do.

I've been meaning to check those out. The only thing I've read by Simmons is Song of Kali, many, many years ago. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but parts of it have definitely stayed with me.

on topic...

Yes - really good quote, Pete - thanks for posting! Similar to the famous 1% inspiration 99% perspiration... or the one about doing it every day actively allows for those moments of inspiration to strike when you're prepared for them... or something like that. 

Gear ...  I've always held that "tools are tools are tools" whether you like hardware or software, vintage stuff, a few old pieces you know really well - or you love the constant inspiration that comes from new hardware or new VST's...  or acoustic instruments or well you get the idea.

It just doesn't matter.  A fantastic guitar player with a total junk guitar can still mesmerize you.  Early techno was on cheap cheap stuff begged and borrowed and on 4-track tape.  Some of my favorite musicians only use laptops.  Some of my favorites have massive basements full of freaking gear I'll never be able to afford. 

It just doesn't matter.   Tools are tools are tools.

Use the tools that feel right to you - and if you feel the need to judge others about their gear or techniques... maybe you should take a look in a mirror sometime.

Seriously ...  are you kidding?   

Can we please have a conversation about *anything* that doesn't get into name calling / idiocy?

Cosmic Fabric - would you please stop antagonizing and posting rude things.  I haven't read every single post in this thread but all the ones that have annoyed me have your name on them.  Please stop, please only post when you feel like being civil again.

Thank you.

John
