This evening (and many prior ones)

- Saul Stokes :: Formation   "Turn of Phrase" is wonderful !!
The music Conelrad is able to produce from Buzz continues to blow my mind. I'm looking forward to his upcoming Bunker 2.

Hi Scott,

Great to hear your experiences, it sounds like you've been there 'from the start' so to speak. I've got one of those iConnectMID2 things as well, which I plan to use more so when I'm ready to roll (so to speak).
Another great thing I'm using for guitar recording is the iRig HD whilst not being the last word in audio quality is actually very useful. I use 'Bias' by Positive Grid for guitar stuff and very good it is too.

Off now to the local greasy-spoon cafe to sit with the builders, drinking huge mugs of tea and scoffing bacon butties whilst simultaneously creating cutting-edge electronica tunes in Garageband...
hello, im new here, but not new to ambient. Thanks for having me.  I did this for a really great ambient drone artist who makes really good music on nothing but a tracker and a guitar.... more info in the youtube link....

(Sorry,...i cant figure out how to embed the youtube vid in the post, if anyone could help that would be stellar...thank you again)

Midnight Tales - Eternalism (2015)
The new collaboration of Wolf Maps and Biblo.

How To Disappear Completely
- Remnant (2015)
New ep from HTDC. For fans of Hammock and Belong. Nocturnal drift.

Hakobune - Sinking Stars (2015)
Space drift.

Good tips!

Also, APK, that Aplink track was pretty swell.

Recently enjoying the Autumn of Communion 5. Truly excellent, especially the second track, Communion, which could be one of my favorites from the AoC outfit.

Also picked up the re-release of Everyday Feels Like a New Drug by Porya Hatami and Lee Anthony Norris, which is a really beautiful album. Listen:

I didn't realize digital-cut vinyl was a thing. Learn something new all the time...

- Loscil :: Sea Island  -- very durable stuff.

- Aplink :: Galatea Galante  -- this could go on forever as far as I'm concerned.

Everything and Nothing / Vinyl Reissues vs Originals

An interesting tidbit gleaned from a Now Toronto article with tips from Paul Kehayas on buying vinyl...

"New reissued records aren't better than original records - especially when trumpeted as '180-gram audiophile' pressings," says the soundtrack composer and member of Hollow Earth. "This is a marketing ploy and basically bullshit."

According to Kehayas, the golden age of record-making was 1960-1972 for UK and U.S. releases. The majority of those "weigh approximately 130 grams and were analog-cut at the time. Most new records are digitally cut unless they state otherwise on the packaging (most trumpet this because it's so hard to pull off!) or a website."

Records don't sound like records when cut from digital, he says, citing labels to avoid: 4 Men with Beards, Scorpio (which puts the gold 180 gram sticker on its covers), Lilith, Plain Recordings, Simply Vinyl.
