    Trala Lama got a reaction from thanosp81 in Music buying habits   
    For digital releases I find it hard to stay away from Bandcamp more than a few days.
    I find most other digital shops too expensive, specially because I prefer to buy only .wav format.
    My BC wishlist is almost as big as my collection while I store most 'name your price' items in my shopping cart .
    For cd's there's no greater pleasure for me than secondhand cd shops or market stalls , I can spend a lot of time browsing around feeling amazed about what I find sometimes.
    Budget restriction is my only enemy

    - just wanted to add Irresistable Force (mixmastermorris) to the list of all-time classics. Global Chillage is phenomenal! Other couple of albums also brilliant
     
    - again Gel-Sol is world-class, maybe have a pre-listen but in amongst some utterly sublime ambience

    Trala Lama reacted to DJ Chien in Music buying habits   
    Hehe if one day I limit my records budget that will mean my brain's been eaten and possessed by an alien intelligence and I am no longer a chien.
     
    Well I must admit my bank account sometimes stares at me with threatening eyes but I'm...uneasy with the idea of a dj preventing himself from acquiring interesting music - for Hofmann's sake that's the basis of our work! (this could be different for a pure producer)
     
    Since I haven't had a CD player for years, I buy digital - Bandcamp only because then I know money goes into the musician's pocket AND you have the lossless option. And there has to be a psychological factor also
    If the album is more than 15$ it has to be a record I really love and want to dj.
     
     
    From times to times I buy vinyls, mainly because I've stumbled on a record that just doesn't exist in digital format (mostly 60's-70's music).

    Trala Lama reacted to Gagarin Project in Music buying habits   
    i was buying a lot of CDs before , after i discovered torrents i started to buy less.
    since 2010 i started to buy digital and collect music only in LOSSLESS formats.
     
    now i limit myself to buy music, because i don't have space on HDD to keep it
    but i still do it regularly, i love music and love to support artists.
     
    Another limits is budget of course and the price for release. When release is 1 euro per track is fine, when is 2 euros like on beatport i tend not to buy it, i guess it is psychological.

    These are three all time classics that made me love psybient in the first place:
     
    Shpongle  -  Are You Shpongled ?.
    Ott           -  Blumenkraft.
    Shulman   -  In Search of a Meaningful Moment.
     
    (There are some more but the original poster asked for only 3)

    Trala Lama reacted to timeisart in Has the genre been getting worse or better over time?   
    I'd say it's getting better, or at least the expectations of quality have gone up as technology gets better and production techniques improve.
     
    The actual quality/enjoyment of any release is subjective but most psybient from the late 90's/ early 2000's will likely sound dated compared to the polished releases of today, with some rare exceptions like "Are You Shpongled?" from 1998 which somehow still sounds fresh today.
     
    That being said, there was probably more innovation and new ideas coming out of psybient in the early to mid 2000's but maybe that's due to the emergent nature of the genre at the time. With any genre, it's difficult to come up with completely new ideas as time goes on but you are able to stand on the shoulders of giants and build upon their ideas to create something new.

    Trala Lama got a reaction from IooN Cosmic Downtempo in Ableton vs Logic vs Fruityloops .... ?   
    I like Ableton a lot, not just for live playing but also to be able to produce 'live' as you can change and manipulate almost anything while the track keeps playing.
    But for basics I still prefer Sony Acid Pro 7, which is a very user-friendly and cute piece of software.

    Trala Lama reacted to Mønsterhed in 432Hz/440Hz   
    I read a really nice post on this subject the other day, however now I cant seem to find it. Basically the whole "432 is more alligned with the universe" is absolute bollocks. It's about arbitrary frequencies of tuning. As long as you follow the tuning, i.e. A3 is 440, A4 is 880 and so forth, it doesnt matter which frequency you choose as long as you're consistent. I'll see if I can dig it up somewhere.

    I actually recorded the throat singing myself. I also recorded the mantra at the end myself as well. I practice when I'm all alone :3. The singing bowl and the erhu were sampled. I'm working on a revised version with a richer soundscape and some more instruments. I'll be sure to post it here!

    Trala Lama reacted to tuculuxu in any of you listen to psydub?   
    Hey,
     
    Psydub is great! Love it :-).
     
    For starters adding to other references that were given earlier in this topic, you can explore this page:
    http://www.ektoplazm.com/style/psy-dub
     
    You can explore different downtempo genre while listenning to this amazing compilation:
    http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/dj-basilisk-the-colours-of-ektoplazm
     
    Ethneomystica VA are particularly good, I love Globular. Ott is of course a fav (staring with Hallucinogen in Dub, and others, and soon another album).
     
    You can find more or less tribal psydub there:
    https://shantiplanti.bandcamp.com/
     
    And this is a label focused on psydub:
    https://dubmission.bandcamp.com/
     
    Enjoy :-)

    Trala Lama reacted to floyd2.0 in DJs and Tracklist   
    Tracklists are indeed very important for the support of producers.
    But i agree with the fact that it isn't always easy to do it in a propper way, like Trala Lama says.
    Also a tracklist will make the set more atractive for the people who are looking for a set they like.
    Personally I often check out the tracklist first before I listen to a set.
    And time-stamping is a must, but i don't do it every time, mainly i'm a bit lazy sometimes

    Aye, like mr. Realms said. In case of multi-layered mixing (is this even a correct term??) it is still important to post the names. It sucks in Mixcloud, indeed, but it still can be managed. Somehow.
