  1. anybody remember that crazy intriga track on a free ektoplazm comp? cant remember the name or the name of the comp
  2. try pizza without the dough in the oven (called pizza dip technically) : cheese/white sauce, tomato sauce, cheese topping and whatever topping you need, melt this in the oven and dip roasted bread in there, so much easier than getting an oven that goes to 300 degrees
  3. look up epic twitch fails on the youtubes and prepare for some smell-TV im doing well myself blasting egg-fumes in my near vincinity but i never wrote that on a forum
  4. what do you mean by that? otherwise thank you very much for your comment! for those interested, i could release a 3 track EP from GoaD in the far future!
  5. how ripe? :s let us not discuss how ripe we want women 1 the lighting 2 laptop 3 cellphone 4 secondary laptop 5 fridge
  6. hmmmmmm some flaws by me on mastering, especially on track 10, i spent more time on theorizing how to arrange my setup for this than actually getting tracks exported and getting it done, theres so much options and tricks to pull in mastering... ive almost got a reworked version ready of this but its not that different from these files on ektoplazm, so it should be good enough for the public most tracks shine like gold to me at first glance... maybe some djs could report on how this feels on a big system? i hardly get the chance and time to play a dj-set myself these days
  7. download a fix for the first track from my facebook in the free downloads section! somehow an error slipped into the final version. https://www.facebook.com/stryderq/
  8. this release is now fully mastered and sent off to neogoa, it should be released anytime soon, just so you know, the mastering for this release will be ULTRAKILLARGH, ive grown a new understanding of audio and mastering since dragon twins and i believe it is for the best also some very nice tracks on this compilation again!!! its awesome! the katedra remix, steel shakti and sky technology tracks are the nicest ones in my opinion! samples coming soon! watch a three minute preview video on my facebook of insider katedra remix!! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=982402535111669
  9. first thing i get is this thread, and nothing psy related, second is a band called beartooth, which is, disgusting music as such the most disgusting music genre is called grindcore if anyone cares lol, no examples pls

  12. haha you said it buddy!!! just before i was trying to explain this to my neighbour but he didn't understand! yea it takes a few tries to cut it really clean hehe! man your track is so fantastic!!! i can't get my head around it, it reminds me about how i feel about shakta - ten spins around the sun and they have a bit the same mysterious atmosphere... even if its been months or even years since ive heard that track, i can always recall that melody! just like that acid line in meganeura, it's just so... WICKED COOL!!!!!
  13. ok about the mastering: this is one of the first albums done for neogoa where i moved away from the traditional mastering idea of getting the spectrums of all tracks similar to eachother, instead i chose to listen to each track carefully, and keep its original mixing as alive as possible. also inspired by the requests of dragon twins to keep overcompression and loudness out of his release, i tried to keep things a bit softer here (but not THAT soft) this means that all tracks in this compilation have their own unique approach to the mastering, for instance proxeeus, which sounds very retro and acidic, must be the softest one done in reference to when this style was popular! the last track, an ambient track, has much softer values than let's say the one before or almost any other, tracks 6 and 7, the newschool goa stormers, have indeed a bit of pumping going on and have more compression than other tracks, simply because the music lends itself to such an approach, they are already so full of sounds and layers that a heavy mastering only adds up to the power and shine of the track! the only little exception to this philosophy is meganaura, my absolute favorite of this release!!! for this one i started with soft dynamics since it is retro and acid-sounding, but however i put in a monstrous bass enhancement and also pretty heavy master compression to give this track extra power and performance since i really felt that this track should sound as intrusive as possible! what lies beneath was a tough nut to crack since it has alot of different passages who each required different settings... nevertheless i am satisfied by it, i tried to pour in a bit of that montoya splendor of the old days and i think it worked! so, music mastered intact to their original mixing, with a few touches of myself in some tracks, that's the main idea behind the mastering of this release!

  19. artifact303 - feelings has such a terrible mix, and its such a great track, somebody should like me should rework it to make it sound just perfect! va atom smasher is also ruined mastering, and many more of course, suncokreti for one... mindsphere nolax etc etc ive been learning home mastering since 2007 and its only now im starting to understand what an immense job it is to get each track just as perfect as the next! it all starts right from the very first sound of the song on the computer or hardware its being made on. decent mixing is imperative for a decent mastering, and decently mixed songs, don't really need mastering! in the end there's so much options possible in audio it becomes somewhat of a guessing game to which techniques are going to give the best end result and half of it is subject to personal taste... all lot can be done in post-processing depending on the purity of the source material. i can easily understand 4cn mastering feels formulaic and plastic since i bet he relies more on what he sees on his displays and hears through his standard set of speakers, than really taking the time to try all possible solutions and sit back and think about it, if you're mastering a ton of music like that you simply cant take the time for each release to get it perfect. it sounds loud and clear but not dynamically balanced or very coherent, something i really try to achieve in my mastering! in 4cn mastering you can clearly hear the bass separated from the mid, and the highs separated from the mid, and also the big volume differences between these three, something which just sounds unnatural to me... probably he's running every track through the same izotope preset just kidding mastering for me is more about enhancing the whole spectrum of a track rather than blowing up parts of it to make it sound loud or big, what you want to achieve is a more pronounced dynamic than the original mix. i would say for a full album you need at least a week and you're working on it 8 hours a day. it takes a lot of time to compare and get each sound just perfect! last time i mastered something for neogoa it took me two damn months for only 6 tracks and im still not 100% happy with the end result for all tracks! so no, mastering is not easy and yes its easy to slip even a little if you're not careful enough or want to be too fast with it! btw soon im hitting 100k downloads for stryder mastering (from neogoa releases on ektoplazm), expect a thank you mix or something!
