Re: Saunter

Thanks ! Yes, some Krautrock was part of my uprising so to speak, most notably Amon Düül II and Can. At one point I had all the albums. Still like to listen to these bands from time to time. The bass tone was saved in extremis, at the last minute. It can be difficult to take a step back and listen w...

Saunter

Not sure about the mix.

A relaxed piece, taking its time.

Re: Harmonium - "Comme un fou"

... others did pop (like New Trolls), in general I'd say it was a self-contained movement because aside from (occasionally) PFM, you don't hear much about those bands nowadays. And PFM went rather pop (in a good way I find) with "Passpartù" and "Suonare Suonare" which I think helped them to come ba...

Re: Harmonium - "Comme un fou"

One of my favorite bands, glad someone else likes them! And from Italy I like Quella Vecchia Locanda, Locanda Delle Fate, PFM, Maxophone, Synthonia, Il Castello di Atlante and especially Deus ex Machina. Italy and Québec were two centers of progressive rock creativity. I specifically use Québec and...

MSF: Monastery Grand

On the wine/linvst front, there's a free grand piano just out now for Melda's MSoundFactory: 1 minute presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4dM0AVmbSI It can be loaded into the MSoundFactory free player. Basic link in the video. Quirks as I experience them in Bitwig 2.4.3, which I find are ...

Harmonium - "Comme un fou"

June 24th is Québec's national day. Here's Harmonium, a very, very popular band from the late 70s with "Comme un fou" from their double LP "L'heptade" This Harmonium double LP is considered as progressive rock. It was remastered on CD recently. Quick translation is from Caroline, found in the commen...

This is very nice indeed. Something for quiet reflection at the end of a long and difficult day.
Something akin to that indeed.

Re: Uneducated

I think we vastly underestimate the value of tempo fluctuation as a dramatic device to convey emotion, those infinitely varying milliseconds of "human-timing" are just as useful as the microtones in a guitar string bend or a violin vibrato to say what we want to say authentically.. I totally agree....

Godin Mutlivoice guitar + GR55 synth

I'm looking at getting a Godin Multivoice guitar and a Roland GR55 synth to interface with soft synths. As well as using from time to time he GR55 synth itself. For the guitar itself, it will be a slim neck nylon strings, so that it feels more like an acoustic. Anyone know if the GR55 needs any spec...

Re: Uneducated

Like camping in the mountains, and realizing how nice it is to be away from the 60 Hz buzz of electricity which is all around us all of the time. You've pinned it exactly. As for using synths w/o bpm ticking, eg. w/o observing the 'grid' is simple as playing a keyboard. There are no sequences, no a...

Uneducated

A smooth piece w/o percussion, in two parts. The first part has only several Repro-5 synths (native Linux) whereas the second part is based on piano (pianoteq, Linux) with u-he Linux/native synths ACE (bass), Diva, Dark Zebra and Bazille as atmospheres. This piece was made 'off the grid', giving it ...

Re: How to document plugins/programs/presets for yourself?

How do you handle bad installers which don't have proper uninstaller? First of all, I consider that with the plugins I have I still need several years to master their use. This said, why look for new plugins ? The last I bought was the excellent Panagement whose author dropped a word about it here ...

Re: How to document plugins/programs/presets for yourself?

Since a few years I'm using the file system. Plugins are either Linux native or Windows. Each category has a Test subdirectory where the installer of a plugin under test will be directed to install its things. All plugins are on a distinct hard drive: /dev/sdc3 /B3 All creations (Bitwig and Mixbus32...
