14 Good
  1. Thanks man... It's looking good at the moment - 12. best selling psytrance release at beatport today. Couldn't be more thrilled! - A
  2. Hi all, Just released on JOOF Mantra - an EP with my three latest tracks. It's got a bit for different tastes - I doubt you'll love them all, but take a listen if you're into either glowing psytrance, early-hours progressive trance, or massively imposing tech-trance. Blast-off at https://www.beatport.com/release/procyon-ep/1802763 - A
  3. Yes! - why is such a gate not just standard issue in all DAWs...? I wrote my own AU for this a while back. Still use it, but it's AU only, ugly as *u**! If you think you can use it, you're more than welcome - but Sonar is VST, ya?
  4. Ossom - not enough freedom of movement for my taste, but I like the parts in there! You look to be a massive eurorack buff - I may axe you for extremely basic advice sometime soon, if that's ok...?
  5. Wow, you need a lot of cash to fill that sucker up!! I am thinking about starting light: 3u * 84hp. Put me an oscilator, two envelopes, filter and VCA in there, and I'm off... Can't find the right modules to start with, though.
  6. Well, here's to hoping... I can't seem to shake the habit - it's my way of relaxing and getting centered. I also don't want to sound like anything else... But, I really suck at imitation, so whenever I hear something cool and think "I wanna do that too", I just go for it, and thankfully something completely different comes out! Then there's the "good artists borrow, great artists steal..."... I try not to borrow too much
  7. I have never actually tracked as such, but I can think of several appeals: - Some people are suckers for "the old days" (myself included!), and doing stuff "the ways of the past". That goes for a lot more than music-making. - Severe limitations call for radical creativity. - The simpler and less-demanding your setup is, the smaller load of hassle you get from system failures, software updates, ... Until it becomes venerable and outdated of course
  8. Where did you loose it, if you don't mind me asking?
  9. Thanks - rest assured, I like it down here in my basement! It looks better than it sounds - the Juno 106 is missing a voice, and the SH-1 is impossible to tune. They're still fun to be around, though
  10. Oh, just that maybe I would use the damn things, if they were any good But also: I keep seeing all these marvelous control surfaces and spacey interfaces popping up, but I just can't figure them out. I still draw my automation by mouse. If that wasn't possible, I would probably type in *every* tiny little control change like in the old days!
  11. > Does this mean you're still doing some music? :OOOO Even as I write this...! I am fiddling with an intro to a progressive morning trance track (a genre for that exists, appearently...). This, a techy piece and an odd psytrance track will come out on JOOF later rather than sooner > How's the Axiom49? I had one but ended up selling it as I hated the knobs on it. Good call selling it. I don't like it particularly. I use the keys, pitchbend and mod wheel. That's it. All other buttons, sliders and pads are untouched. I sometimes look for something else, but figure that I am not the kinda guy who uses all the extra stuff anyway. Sour grapes? > Edit: I actually had to head over to VSE to recall what that gray Korg you have there is (Prophecy) I wish I used it more. It can do some cool tricks, but is a bitch to program. All those menues. I am thinking of going eurorack, but am afraid of the deluge - A
  12. Let's see if I can manage to slip one in... Notice the drawing of the devil on my desk. I am well proud to say it was done by my 4-year old daughter, who is crazy about Tenacious D. We'll get to Juno Reactor, Koxbox and Eat Static soon enough.
  13. I like it. I like it *very* much. I was disappointed with U-turn, but this is terrific: - I love how all the basics (kick, bass, hats, perc) are sooo simple. It has juuust what is necessary, but is curated so well that it sounds like an entire world. - I love how the arrangements are song-like with verses and choruses. Classic Koxbox move. - I love how the tunes are different. Sooo simple, but still otherwordly and hypnotic - just like in the old days. - I love how the synthesis madness is not the focus, but just the backdrop of an incredible odd space. This is for me better than many parts of Dragontales, in which the FXs takes too much over. - I love how the tunes and soundscapes takes me up and down, twistin' roun', without being obvious about it. - I love how the production is extrEmely well done, and fits the music perfectly. - I love how my expactations of being disappointed weren't met! I'm blown, and all the Koxbox albums are spinning again!
  14. Serendipity or not, it belongs in the booklet of a CD with that name I was too late to get one of the pledges that let me get some audio on the disc, sadly. I am extremely happy with the music, though. It's gooood - but I wish it had come out sooner, because it shines along with the sun so well!
