My hope was that this could replace my Oberheim Matrix 12 when it no longer is functioning and repairs cost are ridiculous which they really are already. 

Not sure if it will replace a Matrix 12, but one thing I do know is you can sell your Matrix 12 and buy a Moog One without having to spend much if it at all on it. I'd take either if given to me.  ;)

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have a new album out called The Gong Prophet. You can find it at all the usual download and streaming services, and as a CD here:

I hope you all enjoy it.

FYI - There's already an excellent Hypnagogue Podcast with over 300 episodes.

Good luck with coming up with a different cool title and launching it!

Yeah, maybe it you had internet at home you could have looked to see if that name was already being used. Well, best of luck with your podcast, let us know when/what you change your name of your podcast.

El Capitan or 10.11.6.

Never mind, my OS is too old to run it. I think I'll continue to stick with hardware verbs, I don't have to worry about what OS my Mac is running to use them . ;)

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Favourite plugins ?

My all time favorite still is Spektral Delay, which was discontinued now 15 years ago. I still haven't found anything to replace it.

Do you need reactor to run this?

I should have mentioned this sooner but Cave Dwellers is now up and available on Bandcamp. Here is the link:

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Steve Roach & Robert Rich

Steve Roach & Robert Rich sure make some wonderfully atmospheric music together.  They have a definite synergy.  I'd love to see them release a new album on the "Hearts of Space" label. 

That will probably never happen. HOS label as far I can tell is pretty much dead. I don't think they have released anything new in this genre since Stephen Hill sold it off eighteen years ago. These days Robert is releasing his stuff himself, and Steve does stuff for Projekt and his own Timeroom Editions. I too would like to see a new release from these two together but I don't see it happening in the near future. You never know though.

Hmm, I didn't watch the entire video, but based on about half of it that I did see I have to say I was not impressed with the sound of this new synth. I'll wait to hear more of it later when we get some proper sounds, or I can play one in person somewhere.


In about 23 hours we are done so this is the last day to contribute to our campaign. Thanks again to all of you who contributed or helped spread the word, we couldn't have done this without your support. Now the fun/hard part starts, making this a reality.

We've reached a milestone, we now have more than 100 pledges to this campaign. Thatís incredible. One hundred friends, new and old, super excited enough about how cool this project is that they actually took the time to pre-ordered a copy of this album to make sure that it would happen. You people are the best! 

So to help us celebrate this milestone I have a little video for you. You might have seen this on Facebook already, if not here it is for everyone to see. But first, a little back story.

As you might be aware Mark and I first met at Soundquest Fest back in 2010. We were both performing separate sets. That was until I invited Mark to join me on part of mine, and the rest they say is history.  During our soundcheck our friend Eckart was there filming everything. He heard about our kickstarter campaign, so in an effort to help us out he made this little video from footage from that soundcheck, this is the beginning of what all has happened since. So here it is:

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed to this project. This is our last week and we are still short of our goal of $4500. Remember, if we do not reach this goal, we do not get any funding. So all this hard work and effort by us, and all of you is for nothing. So if you have been putting off making a pledge, now is as good a time as any.

Thanks again for all your support, we greatly appreciate it very much.

I think to do a CD and not a CDr the minimum required is a run of 300 discs. We are planning on using a place here in LA called easy disc.

So as of right now we are just a tad under $2500, which is great. Thanks to everyone who has donated to this project, Mark and I are very grateful. But, this means we are still $2000 short of our goal. So, if you have been considering contributing now would be a good time. Also, sharing it on your social media would help spread the word so feel free to do that. Here is the link again:

Thanks again, let's make this CD become a reality.  :)

Just another update. As of right now we are at $1700 or 37% of our goal. Thank you very much to anyone who has donated to our project. If you have been considering donating now is as good a time as any. We have about 3 weeks left and a long way to go to make our goal. Also please spread the word about our campaign to anyone you think would care. We are trying to reach as many people as we can but we can't do it on our own. Thank you.

As of today we are at 13% of our goal so please support us so we can make this happen. Any support is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hey everyone. Mark Seelig and I have started a Kickstarter campaign to fund out latest CD project. It's a double CD called Cave Dwellers. Basically it's an all or nothing campaign, if we don't reach our goal then we will not be releasing it as a CD. So please go check it out and support it so we can bring you more music that you love. Here's a video message we made for the campaign that has some of the new music in the background:

And here is where you can find our kickstarter page:

Thank you for your support.

Robert uses whatever works, samplers, digital synths, acoustic instruments, not just analog synths. I would say Bestiary might be a good bet for most analog album.
