Forrest Fang- Animism

Got it on sale off of Bandcamp. Also bought Soundtrack For The Aquarium for cheap too. Might buy something else too.

Welcome to the forum!

This sounds like it's going to be a great experience. I hope it turns out well.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: What is Youtube to you?
« on: April 03, 2014, 08:53:00 PM »
While I don't believe in piracy, I do often find myself listening to music on Youtube mainly out of convenience. I don't think Youtube is a huge threat. The damage was already done before Youtube came along.

I do believe that online piracy has hurt the business overall but I also feel like the music industry has completely failed to adapt. I feel a lot worse for the smaller labels like Projekt and their artists than I do for people like Don Henley and Eminem. I certainly don't feel sorry for the major record labels.

I think digital downloads need to be priced more reasonably. I think $10 is usually a bit too much for most albums. I've seen albums on Amazon MP3 and iTunes for $12 and that's just ridiculous. I could buy a used CD for much cheaper. I think the industry needs to provide value, especially in a day and age where consumers have so many options for entertainment. Why would anybody pay $18 for a CD when they can probably go to the movies or buy a video game for about the same price or less?

I love Memories Compiled 2. It's not his best music IMO but I still really like the sound that he had back then. I'm also a fan of Popol Vuh.

NP: Nux Vomica and Voice Of Eye- Invivo

This really should have been released a lot sooner. Took 15 years or so for it to see the light of day but it's a really impressive dark ambient album.

I listened to the first Disintegration Loops album a while back but I didn't really care for it. I love the background story behind it though.

Strom Noir- Tanek Rusaliek

Really digging Strom Noir. Glad I discovered him recently.

Also, my next release will be called Oceanscape and it's probably coming out in early May. It's the other album that I recorded before Winter. It's the first time I've recorded two albums around the same time.

Sounds like an awesome experience. I think it's really cool of him to do workshops like that.

All of them sound great and I use ValhallaRoom mostly, but I thought the Eventide and Oxford reverbs sounded the best in that comparison, and I've never used them. It was really close though. I was actually expecting to like the Lexicon reverb the most but I was wrong.

Faures - Continental Drift
Faures is René Margraff/Pillowdiver, Le Berger, and Elintseeker/Fuzz Lee. This release is beautiful--really unique. The primary form of instrumentation is layers upon layers of guitar, with occasional piano, synth, and glitchy electronics. The result is a shoegazing style "wall of sound," but much more restrained and delicate than what might be expected. The music is thick, but delicate. And the melodies, when they emerge, will melt you. Give this a shot; the first two tracks, in particular, are outstanding.

Listen/Buy: https://homenormal.bandcamp.com/album/continental-drift

Great find. I'm pretty fond of shoegaze myself and there's definitely a neat "ambient-gaze" vibe.

This crazy winter inspired me to record another album. Enjoy!

To be fair, if you're not trying to use any pre-XP programs, you probably won't have many compatibility issues with Windows 8. However, it is still an nuisance for someone like me who does play older PC games, especially since Vista and 7 didn't have compatibility issues to that degree.

Windows 8's compatibility with older programs is worse than it was for Windows 7 and even Vista. Had a heck of a time trying to get Mobil 1 Rally Championship (awesome game BTW) running on my Win8 laptop and when I got it running in a playable state, it doesn't run quite as well as it did on my Vista laptop (slight frame rate dips, despite being well above the game's system requirements). Oddly enough, resolution has no effect whatsoever on the framerate.

I've heard of some other older games having problems too, like Age Of Empires 2 and SWAT 3.

Thankfully, the Compatibility Toolkit works for Windows 8.

Also, not having a Start button is really annoying at first but I've gotten used to that.

I bought apQualizr and I love it so far. That'll definitely work for me.

Congratulations on that. Those are some excellent names to be amongst.
