I feel like I'm back in the 80s  :-[

IMO synth sound evolution has been made backwards. For some reason the ''Quiet Music'' by Steve Roach is so damn good, Oberheim OB8 if I'm not mistaken.

Your link is broken!

Yeah that demo is a joke. Calling it Matrix 12 is a crime...

Yeah I think they are deceptive with their products. They "claim" to reproduce all these classic synths, but if you have ever had any experience with the originals compared to their software versions, well they don't usually add up. The most blatant case I can think of is their version of the Arp 2600. I've own a couple of them over the years, have played many others. Their version is not even close to the real instrument. Their are just certain things that a real 2600 does that the software version doesn't do, it was just a big joke. I can only assume they figure most of their clients have never used any of the real instruments they claim to make.

You didn't processed the sound enough, according to Mr Tomas Weiss, plugins are good enough in this genre of music.

Using his own words:

"We are talking here about Ambient music which mostly is based on an embedded and often blurred bed of sounds and tones".

I say it again...You are not in the little gear category :)

You can buy a really nice car here in Europe with just those 2 synths.

Sure you don't have plenty of 500usd synths and I don't see the usual suspects, wavestation, jd-800, waldorfs etc.
What happened to the Juno-60? That was a huge loss IMO. A synth with great warmth.

I was going to purchase one of those 250 euros furman boxes, but now...

My house is fully grounded but I still listen to some background noise in some machines (max volume) Expecially when they aren't plugged in the same power strip.

Well I think I might be charged as guilty, because when I moved from the city to the countryside, ambient music made so much sense...

The problem it's when you force imagery in a video, sometimes it just violates the track.

...Because for me ambient it's a mind expanding music, it's the soundtrack of my life. A forum like this should exist to give a nice shelter to all people with the same view about the world and this music.

I don't care and I despise politics, tv, newspapers, football, the society in general. I'm interested in the mysteries of life, nature, the cosmos and microcosmos and above all the art we produce that makes us special above all common and rule driven humans.

I'm more interested in a shadow cast by a tree, or the rustling of leaves, than listening to a person talking about ''really important things about society.''

An ambient forum IMO should be about ambient, we have everything and nothing elsewhere if we want it.

Let's forget all about this, indeed this went out of control and won't happen again. Sorry if I offended someone.

I'm not looking for trouble. And I don't want to spend my energy with virtual fights.

Cheers.

"WE can't allow any profane personal insults here"...really.  They do on television! 

Maybe in America, not in the rest of the civilized world.

Everybody needs to cool off, please.

We intend to enforce the rules of the forum. Just because you are angry at something someone else has said doesn't mean you can break the rules in response.

If someone posts something you consider a violation (personal insults in particular), please report the post to the forum moderators and admin. We're going to moderate a bit more tightly for a while until order is restored.

Everyone please remember the point of an internet forum is discussion and the sharing of ideas. Simply put, we come here FOR FUN. It's not supposed to be a series of arguments or insults or belittlements. We all need to behave better, please!

I've read what he said and I consider that an insult.

The forum isn't the problem. It's the way you talk to some people here. I started out posting here a little over a year ago and honestly, I've managed to get along with everyone here just fine. Nobody has disrespected me and I've gotten helpful music advice. Calm down a bit and you'll be a lot better off. I'd hate to see you get banned over this.

Try to talk about hardware 2000 up and we will see, :) , or better, buy it, have the balls to spend that cash because you like this so much, that it seemed like a cent. And then come here to search and be confronted with "advice".

Mr. CCC (sorry for the nostalgically remembrance)

Actually it was CTT. See.. your nostalgic remembrance was a tad foggy, just like everything else you think about us on this forum.

I´m pretty sure that anyone here knows and appreciate, that both of you guys are real specialists when it comes to gear and pro-audio judgements!

Apparently not. Apparently we are just some kids! (actually I've verified and I'm much older than you) with some budget to spend on pro gear and constantly judged by doing it.

So my expectations when I joined this forum were completely ruined, look:

I didn't found any advice to my main questions, except from the other person that has the same issues with the people here, some of those advices turned into real purchases for which I'm really thankful to that person.

Another exception was to figure out how Oophoi worked in his studio, because I was intrigued many years by this (thanks Paul Vnuk Jr. and Seren for the insights)

People that claim ''hey you don't really need all that'', have all that and more, which is really annoying.

Forrest Fang and Castleview are the only persons that really listen to our tracks and provide constructive reviews, the other ones are always ''too busy''.

It's not really about the ambient music, commercial interests prevail in most cases. I seriously doubt some people here really like the music, or if you just found a niche to commercially explore.

If you have problems with newcomers and you like the ''Elite'' only mode, maybe you should consider to go into a private forum format?

Cosmic fabric – you mention Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Jean-Michel Jarre, Oophoi, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream as your gear inspiration – but I assume these artists all started with a single synth and a reel to reel.

Oophoi did enjoy gear but a direct personal quote was that his ‘dream’ effects chain was a roland VP9000, TCm3000 and sony minidisc 730 – none of which are particularly high end gear. I also find inspirational how he also valued and supported creativity in others. I can’t speak about the others on your list.

Thanks for your input. You're one of the artists with little gear that I enjoy most :)

Indeed I mentioned those artists and I could mention more. It's true they all started with little gear, but when they reached a certain peak, their tracks are full of well known synths with character and if you think a specific synth is not important just try to listen some tracks of Oxygene without the Eminent 310U (in this case an organ) or the Elka Sythex, or Steve Roach without his Oberheims, let's remove them from known tracks and let's see how they sound.

My conclusion is that there are many ways to approach ambient music, It's ok to draw with just a pencil, but using and combining colors is more exciting to me.

My studio fits into the little gear category.  There is really not much there.


I just feel that you answer like a politician, you aren't truthful, clear or concise. I think you're confused with what's little and what's too much.

What's the difference between a person like you that claims to have ''little gear'' (clearly not true the pictures don't lie) and me and Extasis? Are you saying that you are better than us? And that's the explanation why you have that big set of tools?
Because we have less stuff than you, but still, we are witch hunted for some unknown reason that has too do with having too much and unnecessary gear.

I just want a clear answer to those simple questions.

Mr. Julio why do you have an Oberheim Matrix 12 and all this gear? Do you know by the slightest chance that this discussion is because of the righteous need for bashing people using ''unnecessary high-end gear''? have you noticed that you look silly pretending that you are on the side of the people that has talent but little gear?

Do you recognize this studio?

Let me give you some flash news! It's yours!

I'm not going to get into a slanging match with any individual who has such fixed and limited views on the ambient music.

I have more than 1000 albums of original files and cds, including yours, I'm not new to ambient.
