Everything and Nothing / Re: Vinyl Reissues vs Originals

My first album Point of Arrival that I released on cassette back in 1986 was mixed to digital. When we released it on vinyl a few years ago we used those same digital masters, although I cleaned them up some for the new release. A lot of stuff as far back as the early 1980s was digitally mixed, and those mixes were used for cutting vinyl, it's not like its a new thing and I doubt anyone can hear the difference.
very awesome....
can't wait to see the other videos:)...

Thanks for checking out the video. I created both videos on my own. They were created using Apple Motion 5 and Final Cut Pro X. One more video will be out very soon! The new album will be ready for release mid- May.

> I wondered if anybody had any suggestions about what might be covered in a discussion like this?

APK's reference to Davies is a good one because, although some of the themes, titles, and whatnot are Lovecraftian, the music doesn't always strike me as dark per se. I sometimes wonder if it is too easy to play into the dark side of Lovecraft when making music rather than emphasizing the mystery or the sense of other-worldliness. 

Here is something I like that is clearly inspired by Lovecraft, but not sinister or overly dark in its atmosphere--one of my favorites from 2013: The Ashes of Piemonte - Datura Notes

Hi Chris - your post was a little small
Hi there Chad...
looking forward to your new album..
Really quick question...did you do the video yourself or did someone else make the video for you???
I love it and was just wondering what tools were used in making it...

I tried a little googling on digitally cut vinyl and found some long discussions on the Steve Hoffman forum and such. Apparently some European pressing plants ask for the masters as Redbook CDrs. Also, when you think about it, for quite a while people were mixing to DAT tapes anyway, so while vinyl may "warm" the mix, it's still a 16bit 44.1 or 48 source.

This is just stuff I hadn't really thought about before - I'm not a vinyl nut - though I have a wall of it. I currently like to spend my money on SACDs, DVD-As or Blu-rays with surround mixes. That's my personal audio treat. BTW - I highly recommend Diatonis for excellent ambient music surround mixes.

pre ordered Motionfield - Luftrum so listening to the download. This is excellent. Melody orientated, chilled ambient with subtle and appropriate beats. A real cracking album.

Now playing - Picture Palace Music - ReVision. TDs Thorsten Quaeshning's band. Good stuff.

Certainly agree about "Lilith" pressings.

Bought two of their Tangerine Dream releases. The "Mysterious Semblance at the Strand of Nightmares" vinyl was very poor quality. Surface noise was obtrusive for a brand new record. Doubt I would buy any of that labels output again and it certainly wasn't cheap either. Having said that their other TD release "Run To Vegas" was fine.

I mainly buy second hand vinyl......70s Prog addiction :) However all the other brand new pressing I own are excellent, especially the Boards Of Canada stuff.
