Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Can software synths really emulate hardware synths?

Might as well buy the software and map a controller to it, lot cheaper than the hardware and sounds the same !

Would have to be - Time Cage from 62 Eulengasse - Namlook / Inoue.

As a back up would also have the mighty Tangs - Phaedra or Rubycon  ;)

As a young person, I can tell the difference between loseless files and let's say 256kbps or 320 kbps MP3s even before I started making music but honestly, the difference isn't enough for me to convert all my music library to loseless files. Now if you're listening to MP3s at 192 kbps and lower, you're asking for trouble.

as long as it is a desert island where there are no sounds of human activity - such as planes, ships hooting etc.
When we had the smoke from the Icelandic volcano stopping flights it made a huge difference to the soundscape and no plane trails disturbing the tranquillity of the skies

Scott :: These are the best I have ever used. Very sensitive (no pressure needed). Very immediate. Feel very accurate. And the side leds really help.

How consistent and accurate are those touch strips? On any instrument I own, they're slow or iffy, though they're great in theory.

Is that actualy what the payment rate is then 1000 plays for $10? If so that is poor. I do recall a Projekt email where Sam said it was 247 plays for one dollar also. Mmmhh not great.


Spotify's payout is not the same for every artist and it has been decreasing.  The artist's payout can be closer to 0.001 per stream if they are signed to a medium or larger label.  Thom B probably gets about 0.005 per stream, so that would be closer to 2000 plays for $10.

Mist costs $5 as a download minus 30% to a major merchant.   So someone would need to stream 700 Mist songs (or the entire album 175 times) to produce the same revenue as an Amazon download.  Streaming the entire album 5x per year for 35 years would pay the same as a download.  This is assuming Spotify's payout rate doesn't change which is a doubtful assumption.
