A little update here:

Yin (section 1) has been finished and release. Available on Bandcamp and Youtube channels.
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.

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

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.

Don Slepian - Sea of Bliss

Found this when searching around for old school new age ambient that I might like. I guess this is regarded as a classic in some circles but I didn't know about it until recently. IMHO this has aged remarkably well. Numero has reissued a couple other works by him through Bandcamp also.

Erik Wollo - Different Spaces

Had my second full listen yesterday. This album is really good. Much better than his last solo album IMHO, which I found a little slick and overproduced.

Apne Sinn - Worlds Apart EP

Didn't grab me as much as "En Seier" on first listen, needs more listens to sink in. Would love to see a new album from this artist. I think I read something about him making contributions to some upcoming works by Steve Brand.

I have 'Electronic Universe 1' and 'Fragrance'

I like both for very different reasons - the electronic universe is very spacey and fragrance manages to sound like the music perfumeries would have made....

This is an extended version of a track from many years ago that was part of a compilation album 'Steve Roach, then a retrospective 1982 - 1997'

It was much shorter and one of my favourites - possibly the main reason I have kept the CD all these years.

I like the new longer version - it manages to be the same and different at the same time

Congratulations RME do some good stuff, especially good and stable drivers.
I got the RME HDSPe AES card, AES is still the best way for low latency audio.

I really enjoy the interface, it sounds great and goes up to 192KHz.

I haven't played it on headphones yet, just speakers. I'm primarily a speaker guy but use headphones sometimes. Of his recent albums I have the one that hit me hardest on first listen was Painting in the Dark.
