I was listening to the new album yesterday or the day before and I liked it. I like the fact that you used acoustic sources only.

Opening-Collection 1  -5 tracks from Databloem/APK. The original VA compilation of this series and still the best.CD


Great to be reminded of this one. The very first Databloem release 12 years ago, when Dennis Knopper and I started the label, later adding Dataobscura, and years later going our own ways ... Dennis (in Holland) turning Databloem into the excellent general electro-ambient store that we know today.
This album is unfortunately no longer available:

Wow, I didn't know that you helped found Databloem.

Seeing the Seren Ffordd thread tipped me off to explore the massive Umbra catalog again, so recently, all by Seren:

The Quiet Labyrinth
Realms beyond the stars and light
The Portals Dreaming
Aurora
A Melancholy Light

Special music, special label...

Antdude, pm or email in game at metalmike.8346 or one of my characters (Pain/Siren/Scary/Cutey/Tinkerer/Quickshot/Terror/Madness/Sneaky (first name) Kometh (last name)). In a small guild (34 people, usually 4-6 of us on as the main folks) and my guild leader is someone I've known from GW1 days lol. We do Edge of the Mists, Fractals (pain in the ...), Dungeons, WvW, PvE stuff together a lot. I been mapping Terror Kometh lately to get her closer to 100%. My ranger has a poi and vista to get for 100%. Ele done. Rest are all 9x % to full map completion.

The feature pack is introducing some stuff, class balancing (ranger getting some decent love finally for that) and other things. The MegaServer made is a lot easier to find people of same language/world/guild on any map (some concept they put into the game a while ago) which I thought was cool.

Well I succumbed to their offer and bought the full (standard) version. I was looking at the suite version, but even though I liked some of the included synths, the Max for Live thing wasn't really for me.

Looking forward to having a new DAW to peruse and hopefully inspire some new processes.

Carbon Based Lifeforms-23.I knew about the label,Ultimae, and thought is was downtempo trance.But this CBL is all ambient,no beats and well recorded.Gentle melodies in there mixed with field recordings.BC
Pink Floyd-Dark Side 2 Disc version-Do we need another remaster of Dark Side,no.But the second disc is why I bought this.It is great.Most songs are longer,some double the length.Well recorded for a rough live mix.CD
Opening-Collection 1-5 tracks from Databloem/APK.The original VA compilation of this series and still the best.CD

Anomalous Disturbances "Archive Three" CDr

Anomalous Disturbances, a drone guitar project driven by Terrence O'Brien from Vancouver, Canada, belongs to the most active members of The Ambient Ping community, which, by the way, celebrated two weeks ago its 15th anniversary (I am wishing many happy years to come!!!). "Archive Three" is comprised of 5 tracks recorded during 2007 and 2008 as a part of "Archive Two" recording sessions. Originally released in digital formats in the middle of October 2013, now, since May 2014 additionally available on pro CDr format packaged in a nice 4-panel eco sleeve with disc flap holder. Definitely a great decision, Terry, for all those nuts-collectors like me!!!

The title of the opening track, "A Sad And Beautiful World", exactly displays the atmosphere of this gorgeously floating ambience. A very calm and deeply evocative soundsculpting with hauntingly interplaying passages of soaring, slightly high-pitched wistfulness and soothingly permeating stillness. Nearly 11 and half minutes of virtuoso guitar aesthetics!!! "Pipe Dream # 1", although revealing calmly, incorporates more intense and cascading texture, yet keeping throughout a very warm approach with graciously unfolding immense panoramic touch. My ears are continuously bathed in splendidly embracing drone blissfulness, more please!!! "Mysterium Tremendum # 17", as indicated by its title, straightly dives deeply into a giant, chasmal realms filled with remote, eerily monochromatic hums, which are persistently pierced by mysteriously undulating and illuminating tenseness. A journey into a truly mindscaping zones, where spectacular, shadowy subterranean images are revealed with massively towering sceneries. "When Darkness Falls", with 16 minutes the longest piece on "Archive Three", begins with tensely penetrating dissonances, backed by expansive drifts and occasional chirping effects. But the leading dense drone gently increases and inconspicuously reaches remarkably grandiose dimensions, warmly ethereal and symphoniously spacious capturing all the essences of fascinating nocturnal journeying. An awe-inspiring sound magic awaits here, bravo!!! The last piece, "Melting Worlds", moves on rising and falling waves of tranquil soundscapes mingled with unsettling flutters exquisitely colored with oscillating spatial twinkles, but always surging within intriguing earthy feel. A very strong finish!!!

I remember well reviewing few years ago "Archive Two" 2xCDr as well as Terry O'Brien's collaborative project Wassonic with Matthew Poulakakis. Once again, Anomalous Disturbances showcases his exceptionally crafted and distinctively sophisticated artistry in guitar sound manipulations. So it's quite obvious that "Archive Three" gets my highest recommendation, it's a must-have listening experience for all aficionados of guitar-driven dronescaping!!! And just the same goes for the rest of Anomalous Disturbances' discography, which include 6 solo albums and except already mentioned Wassonic also "SADU Live" album with Sylken and URM kindred spirits. Not to forget regarding "Archive Three", cover photo-art and design credits go to Paul Cook and Tim Gerwing, Richard Dolmat is credited for recording and mixing, while additional mixing and mastering was executed by Chris O'Brien (Terry's brother).

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Online Mastering ?
« Last post by Julio Di Benedetto on Yesterday at 03:47:52 AM »
The SOS article to my reading of it is still traditional mastering and is what I have done in the past.  Upload music via FTP.  Mastering engineer masters the music.....downloads music for review......several email exchanges with changes......master approved...pay & receive master disk. 

It would be great to attend the session but I have not been able to do so yet.
