So, I uh, might have somewhat spur of the moment (but not really, been wanting this for a while) put a system in my car. Was initially going to just upgrade speakers but my wife talked me into going m

Considering Ae dropped 8 hours of music that year with no hype but a facebook post it was a bit much for a 25 minute EP

Does anyone feel like I do that T69 Collapse only 'works' in the context of the video (Weirdcore did an amazing job syncing up the visuals to the beats)?

It definitely works better.

I can’t stop listening to this. It’s just massive sounding. My new system should be done early september. It will be the best sound system I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to christen it with this gem before driving my family crazy with the NTS Sessions...

I'm intrigued. I'm looking at re-doing my stereo but having a hard time finding larger, high SPL but also good sounding speakers on a reasonable budget. Will you share to the stereo thread when built?

Sorry too derail; but

 

Ive been through the ringer with systems. My advice old tube amps. Techs can work on them forever and they stay sounding amazing. The tubes are cheap. 
 

My set up is a dynaco st-70. With dynaco A25 speakers. The sound is shocking. You can touch it. Squiggy, soft. wonderful.

All cheap too. st-70 $500, a25's $200 a pair. Of course have a tech recap, etc. Nothing digital.

 

 

my set up

Really like T69 collapse. Wonder if I'll get the "WOW" feeling I did when I first heard drukqs. That was my first Aphex Twin experience. I then worked back through his stuff. I'll never forget when I first heard Wax The Nip. Absolutely amazing!!!

drukqs was my first one asswell and i got that WOW feeling with this one, hope you guys will 2

I remember popping that shit in the car, and the 1/2 punch of Jynweythek Ylow->Vordhosbn just fucking floored me. Remember thinking "oh, shit YES - this is the shit I've been looking for."

When I got Drukqs, I played disc 2 first by accident and thought just the same after 54 Cymru Beats !!!

Subjecting a family to new autechre is hilarious to me. And hell yes to to this sounding massive. That is the word. So much of it sounds huge. Big room aphex. Finally a proper sub assault by the man.

To anyone scared to listen to the 96 kbps, it sounds great, and I have plenty of OCD about sound 

At worst it sounds like you're hearing it on a very clear fm radio station, it's not like a live video from someone's phone

 

Maybe I'm crazy but these tracks have a richer sound at 96 than the hangable auto bulb cd at full quality

 

It isn't perfect but who cares, just break it in now and we'll have the hq versions soon enough, just like the soundcloud dump

Trust me you'll thank yourself later-- is anyone regretting hearing them at this quality? I'm so glad I did

Caved and grabbed the 96k. Definitely some fresh parameters in here.

 

Promising myself to only listen to the 96k on a bluetooth speaker, saving headphones and big system for the pristine digitals.

I can tell there are some delicious details in there I don't want to spoil yet.

 

I speculate this direction was spurred in part by his purchase of the RYTM.

listening to them in 96kb/s now wont satisfy my masochism like waiting an extra month to listen to a .flac of music that i already purchased will

Yes I have that delayed gratification mentality as well most of the time, but just saying the sound quality is pretty great

Will not listen until I get the real thing, 96kbps is too low to bother!

 

It sounds more like 192kbps, it's well encoded with joint stereo and noticeable artifacts are rare

How is that even possible? I can easily notice 96 from 128 from 192. 192 to 320 is harder but definitely audible with good gear and good ears.

 

It's very strange to me how 96kbps could trick you into being as high as 192, now im tempted to check it out but feel bad about it. I will wait for the real thing. It's been a while since I got a physical copy of something. Hopefully it's easy to find when I go back to London. Funny how the day I left for a week all these aphex twin ads start showing up all over the place.

Okay guys, we need to formulate a strategy to have this leak in higher quality ASAP. I can’t go on ignoring this after having a taste.

I've been listening to this EP more than I listened to anything that came out post-Syro (including Syro too).

 

Same. And I have no regrets listening to the 96k rip. I love it already and it's exciting to think this could sound even better. I've settled into this rip so much that when the EP comes out it will feel like its a remastered high def re-release of a classic.

Worked from home yesterday with this on repeat.  8 hours-ish?  I keep getting something new out of every listen.  

 

Also I agree that the quality of the leak is much better than you would expect at 96k.  I've already got the special vinyl and cassette on pre-order, and I'm happy to wait for those, but I'd love for Warp to just dispense with the FLAC.

      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
       
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.
