I fullfilled me another long time dream this year: A professional audio interface, the RME Fireface 802.



I will post a photo of my new studio devices (now integrated in a 3U rack) soon ;)
Hope you are doing well with the RME ... wish I had one of them !   Excellent.

Finished Season2 of Fortitude.

What can I say. I think "enjoyed" would be the wrong word. Very, very dark , disturbing, brutal but addictive. Stunning scenery and 2 or 3 very good acting performances.( some not so good but insufficient to spoil the overall )

As said, disturbing stuff.

Recently:

Tangerine Dream - The Virgin Years '77-'83 5xCD boxset

https://www.discogs.com/Tangerine-Dream-The-Virgin-Years-1977-1983/release/3659996

Not my favorite era of TD, but I was surprised at how much I liked most of the music in this set. I guess this is where the classic era sort of ends for most people.

I am an early to mid 70s TD man, probably like most TD folk. However Force Majeure and Tangram would have to also be in my all time stunning album list.
 
Actually have every studio album and eps right up to the present day . There is still a lot of good stuff in the more recent releases like Springtime/Summer in Nagasaki and the sonic poem series, Island of the Fey for instance. Acquired the most recent ep "Particles" which is very good and has a real 70s vibe on disc 1. Also streamed their recent gig on a riverboat in Budapest . It was absolutely excellent, very hopeful for the new album which is planned.

Possibly the greatest album of all time   ;)

Yes - Close to the Edge . The Steve Wilson (of Porcupine Tree fame)  remix. Difficult to get hold of this version now. The new stereo mix is excellent great clarity in the vocals and instrumentation. Possibly even an improvement on the original.

I will listen to the Blu Ray 5.1 surround at the weekend and possibly completely and utterly blow my mind  :)

Upgraded my signal chain recently to a Phoenix Audio pre amp.....I have run all my synths through mic pre's since around 2007 and my studio has been balance since then.  Having the Eq is really nice though I tend to over do it just because it makes the pre's sing.  Its a bit strange to me as the low frequencies are on the right side and high on the left.  This is the first external hardware Eq I've had so what do I know ;D...think it may have something to do with the much revered Neve 1073 pre amp that a good deal of manufactures are inspired to recreate and harness its sonic virtues

NP: Matt Borgi - Shadows of a Detroit Winter Sun



Subtle and delicate ambient music with a fading and classical touch in the mood of the music of Aphex Twin.
