Re: Your sparse studio

The 310’s cost double the A77x’s... I couldn’t justify it at this time.

Re: Your sparse studio

Personally - and this may be just my inexperience - but I'm very interested in the Adam A77x's, their extended bass range means I could get by pretty well without a subwoofer. And they're not too madly expensive either at 1700 or so the pair.

Re: Expanding keyboard X stands and stability

I second the K&M 18950 series suggestion, I have two of different sizes and they’re rock solid and have loads of accessories if you need them. X stands just look like a bad idea to me.

Re: Fair Dinkum - track made with the Nonlinear Labs C15

Thanks for commenting, I was beginning to think no-one liked it :lol:

Nothing to say, sadly, just keeping the ennui at bay. I'm now working on the second movement.

priorities

Having returned to making music again after a long absence (lots of playing baroque ensemble music, but no recording or electronics for the last five years or so), I find myself really asking what are my priorities. So my first purchase was a synth (NL C15). I'm very happy with the choice. Of course...

Re: Fair Dinkum - track made with the Nonlinear Labs C15

So here's the final version - for the time being. This is my first Reaper project, and it's been quite a job coming to terms with the daw, let alone the C15. Very grateful for any criticism.

Re: NONLINEAR LABS C15 DIGITAL SYNTH

I just uploaded a shortish preview of an extended piece I'm working on using the C15 exclusively.

I can't exaggerate how inspiring and expressive this instrument is, I'm absolutely delighted with it.

Fair Dinkum - track made with the Nonlinear Labs C15

First glimpse of one section of an extended piece I'm working on, very much a work in progress at this point. I thought it might be of interest in part because it showcases some of the lovely sounds the Nonlinear Labs C15 is capable of: Four Movements preview.mp3 As always, any and all comments are ...

Re: If you were starting over; what would you do differently?

I got totally into modular a few years back and then, having accomplished basically nothing with it, got rid of it all. It was a dead end for me. My recommendation would be to go with a keyboard synth and then find what is lacking from your tool set and if you need modular to do it, go for it. But a...

Re: Doesn't anyone listen to Phillip Glass or Steve Reich ?

I’m playing Glass’s Metamorphosis at the moment and it’s led me to completely re-evaluate his work. This is wonderful music. Playing it is a completely immersive experience. Just ordered the 20 Etudes which look a lot more challenging.

Re: classical music

I’m having fun these days recording my interpretation of In C, where everything’s up for grabs. Indeed it’s written to be interpreted!

Btw Perfesser, you’ve lost a concerning amount of weight. I hope you’re doing ok.
