  1. Latest for Karnataka's main man Ian Jones. Features the "Gathering Light" era vocalist Lisa Fury among others. https://chasingthemonsoon.com/?v=79cba1185463 I bought the WAV and MP3 versions. Looks like he is doing everything "in house" and there were a couple of download glitches which Ian sorted out quickly.
  2. I saw this band recently and very good they were too.
  3. Tried changing things in Bandlab, but it's still not cooperating. Ah well!
  4. Yeah, its me Glyn, I keep changing my display name and it keeps changing back. I need to go into my Bandlab account to see if i can change it there or something.
  5. I was at the Robin 2, Bilston near Wolverhampton for The Reasoning Last Hurrah. This explains it https://www.thereasoning.co.uk/ The reasoning were one of a lose grouping of South Wales based prog bands that include Karnataka, Magenta and Panic Room. It was a great day with This Winter Machine kicking off, they were excellent. Next band Circu5 had been on my bucket list for a while and they did not disappoint. I got to have a pint with leader, guitarist, singer Steve Tilling at the after-show. Jump is a band I had not encountered before, they have been around a long time and have made 13 albums to date so now I have a back catalogue to to catch up on, Fronted by angry Welshman John Dexter they spat their venom in all the right directions. Leader and bass Matt Cohen did a great job of assembling a band of former and new members. Young Californian Emilee Moyce did a great job on the female vocals, previous sung by Matt's ex-wife Rachel. Apparently this was her first time on stage but she preformed with great confidence. The male singer, known only to me as Andrew was also top notch. Original drummer Jake Bradford-Sharp is one of the best drummers on the British prog scene at the moment. Lead Guitarist Keith Hawkins another original member who replaced Owain Roberts who sadly went missing in 2012 was most impressive. ex Panic Room guitarist Paul Davies was on 2nd guitar, and later another ex Panic Room guitarist Dave Foster joined them on stage. For the finale Anne Marie Helder joined them. as a massive Panic Room fan it was something special to see her on stage with Dave and Paul. It was an emotionally charged performance and a fitting "Last Hurrah" from a really great band. I look forward to hearing Matt's latest project Omega Point.
  6. I have tried, several times to change my display name but it always seems to revert to my "legal" name rather than the name I had been known by on this and the previous fourm. What's up?
  7. I have Ozone elements7, so its a free upgrade!
  8. I cant find it on the AAS website, I was looking to see if there was a upgrade deal.
  9. I have a couple of mountain dulicimers (and a couple of electric ones) and I think Emberton have nailed it with this library.
  10. I have a song nearing completion that needs a female lead vocal. I have been looking out for a suitable voice at local open mic nights etc. without too much success an I am thinking paying a session singer may be the best option. Googeling pulls up a number of sites offering the services of singers online that will record the vocal for you. Prices vary a lot depending on the profile, experience etc. of the singer. I was wondering is anyone here had experience using one of these services. Locating a singer is a bit of a trawl through various "showreels" looking for one that sounds right. Some sites have "sounds like" tags which helps a bit but but unfortunatly for me you don't get sounds like Anne-Marie Helder, Hayley Griffiths, Christina Booth or Annie Haslem.
  11. Kontakt instruments for the full version of Kontakt.
  12. These are decent freebies and worth the bandwidth and disk space (IMHO)
  13. I have SSD4 platinum but never use it, I dislike the interface and workflow. I am going to try the demo and see if this is any better, I can upgrade for $49 if there is a significant improvement I may do that as there are some decent sounds.
  14. But use 20190814 instead and the names can then be sorted so the most recent is on top
