Just finished Lock In by John Scalzi.  It was a fast paced, enjoyable read.  I don't think I've ever read a book with so much dialog in it.  Because of that style it's easy to just breeze through the book very quickly.  Like Chris said earlier, it's well done & exciting.  Apparently Scalzi has three different TV series in the works, all based on his books, including Lock In.  The other two series are based on Old Man's War and Redshirts.  I hope at least one of the three will be good.

Next up is Exo by Steven Gould, the next book in the Jumper series.

Yes Bandcamp lumps it together as CD, it is up to the artist or whoever to specify somewhere on the release page that it is a CDr.

This is a collection of various tracks that have appeared on various compilations. They hang together nicely. Glitchy, acoustic ambiance and drones. Name your price and digital only at

That was pretty cool. I especially liked those sounds you're creating around the 6:45 mark.

Very nice setup Julio. I too have a KK Audio desk, except mine is this gigantic thing with lots of room for rack gear.  :o I'll try to get some pictures up. Too bad KK Audio went out of business, they made great studio furniture.

How do you like the Solaris compared to the A6 you had, or your Matrix 12? Right now I too have a Matrix 12, except it's not mine, I'm taking it in for repair for a friend.

Loren... I would be grateful for any leads to a tech you may know when the time comes.  I have a short list of names but no actual reassurance . My M12 is working just fine albeit form day to day it can be an M9 or M7 and back to a M12, though usually most things are stable......Thanks so much.
Forum Member Projects News and Promotion / 'Supernature' new 'single' release
« Last post by petekelly on October 16, 2014, 01:28:12 PM »
I've just released a 'single' titled 'Supernature'
info from my Band camp page:
'Supernature' came out of the sessions for my upcoming album 'Iris'. I felt it was somewhat different in mood to the rest of the tracks I was working on, so I'm releasing it as a 'single'. 'Supernature' changes subtlely in tonality throughout it's duration, many sources were used to create the track and the tonal shifts employed add to the tracks's overall liminal sound signature. The track's dynamic shifts are less subtle !

Bandcamp's flexibility for this kind of thing is pretty unique and most welcome !

Just wanted to let folks know that I've added a few stray tracks to a new Soundcloud page I just created.  What prompted me to do this was a new one-off track I created yesterday for fun ("Bothered") that was inspired by Tim Story's recent collaborations with members of the German electronic band Cluster.  I've also posted a track from 2009 ("Cicidas") that I originally posted to, a track from 2001 ("Silent Blue") that didn't make it onto Phantoms, and an ambient track I did back in 1999 ("Crickets With Gongs") as Spirit Oscillator for a beat-oriented EP.

Here is the link:

As for my next CD, it should be released by Projekt a few months from now, probably in January 2015.

That bothers me as well on Bandcamp where it's not specified if it's a CD or Cdr.  Although maybe bandcamp's definition isn't particular and the two are lumped together.  Seems like the artist/seller on bandcamp could specify this for its buyers.

I agree with APK, I don't think there is a "pro" CDr, but some are a better quality than others. If you are going to release on CDr then you should go for the highest quality. I myself use Taiyo Yuden with a white full face inkjet printable label. I burn the discs at 16X or less. I print them in a Canon inkjet printer, and this time printed all the booklets and tray cards on the same printer, would probably have been cheaper and less of a headache to outsource the booklets, but thats another story! ;D
Taiyo Yuden seem to be held in high regard by many, and to date I have not heard from anyone who have bought my albums that have had a problem playing them. We may only sell small numbers but in my opinion you still have to be as professional as possible with everything, as if you were a major record company, not just an individual independant artist, speaking for myself that is.
I would think Projekt would be absolutely sure about the CDr discs used were of a good quality, as they have a big reputation to uphold, plus Sam has offered to refund money if the CDr goes bad, so he must be pretty sure they won't.
