The tracks here, have in fact that annoying low frequency sound, if you want to connect on skype I can show you. I don't think that sound is musical at all and in fact it sound like a defect. Most comments here seem biased with all due respect.
Just to be clear I like Steve Roach, but I don't understand that decision.
All I can say I have noticed a big shift and change in sound (quality) after his studio change..
Big changes in his signal chain I have think was done then..maybe an ohter mixing board..defiantly using another reverb now and it is not the PCM 91 anymore..which I prefer to whatever reverb he is using now..
the different reverb gives a totally other sound character and I just like.
Would love to hear how his music sound in his studio, if we are hearing the same thing,
Not sure what speakers he is using.. But It is easy to become "home blind" in your own studio..
It probably sound better in his studio for sure...with his gear and speakers and all.. But I have been listening to hi for along time so the shift in sound quality according to me is not progressing anymore...
I just noticed a lot darker character in the latest year and a lot more bass and midrange the high frequencies is now very low. Compare albums like atmospheric conditions with Dynamic stillness... The atmopheric conditions album have the PCM 91 for sure.. I think after been using it for so many years he felt forced to experiment and try some other less good reverb...the one he is using sound a lot more dry and darker..I do not like it as much as older albums..
Anyway His new album Delicate forever is a step in right direction one of his best in the later years for sure.
