Chris - up until about 2 weeks ago all links went to alteraorbe.com - and all searches will pull those.  It literally just switched and Ran and Landru are working on getting their ".com" back.   A bit of a mess during a server migration.

I am so stuck in techno / minimal techno / atmospheric techno / panoramic techno etc. etc...  ;-)

Yagya - Rhythm of Snow
Maurizio - M-Series 12"'s
Basic Channel - 12"'s
Deepchord / Echospace - Coldest Season / Liumin / Vantage Isle / DC Series


spent a day on youtube listening to UR, Jeff Mills, Surgeon, Robert Hood, Carl Cox, Plastikman.

Periskop's 40 collection I've recommended a thousand times and I'll recommend it again - 40 albums - free... and the majority of them I have loved so far!

Silent Season and Dewtone label releases have also been making me very happy - streaming them on bandcamp and wishlisting them for when I have some spare change to pick them up.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Regarding the Lost Island
« on: February 25, 2014, 07:25:10 AM »
At the height of LOST - especially that amazing first season - I was knee deep in the research and what is going on here? aspects of the show...  It was so brilliant.  And my wife and I stuck with it all the way through.  It stumbled now and then - (sometimes hideously bad) but as a work of art - wow they did good. 

And yes - that island would be amazing to visit.

Although - it's kind of like reading a wonderful book that is so vivid in your mind - and then someone makes a movie and it doesn't live up to the visions you had... and then the movie's feel overtakes what you saw originally... it's happened to me a couple times... :-(

chris23 - the album is released on the label Ran co-owns, AlteraOrbe.  If you look at this page you'll see the link to this album and his amazingly excellent collab with Oophoi:  http://alteraorbe.es/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=50

Note - alteraorbe was ".com" up until very recently - it's ".es" now (spain).

Tomas, I post about music I love - on rM, on twitter, on facebook... sometimes it's people who post on rM or are on my label - often times it's not.

I really like this album.  Steve Brand is my friend - re: the Over-soul post.  I also posted about LOST with Immersion recently - which had nothing to do with music at all. I also posted to the gear thread although my advice wasn't really wanted there - and that's ok. 

I've posted how much I like your stuff now and then. 

I really shouldn't feel the need to defend myself, but I've been here since Mike opened the form well over a decade ago.  I go in phases of posting a lot here and posting a little here - depending on my time.

This is a great release... recommended.

You might want to email Steve (I'll point him here also) - he's gauging interest on doing another special package cdr release this year on his Pioneer Light label.  His label releases are also at http://relaxedmachinery.com

Most of the series was shot in Hawaii... and humorously close to public beaches. (well all beaches are public in Hawaii technically).  Literally tons of the show was shot there - except a few bits here and there.  It's been a long while since I was nuts for Lost - man I loved that show.

I enjoyed reading that - thanks for sharing.

Got to agree on the Cell album - excellent stuff. 

I just stumbled across something last week and now I'm totally forgetting what it was.  Ack!  I can't remember.

Temporal Arc?  ;)

hahahahahahahaha  Good thing I wasn't taking a drink when I read that!  When exactly *is* that guy going to release another album!

This is from 2008... wow.  It's like a time machine!  Based on HaywoodMarchal's email address I'm not sure if he's real or not... but, just in case he is - or if anyone else wants to know... No I'm not sure what AtmoWorks is doing these days (I stopped being a co-owner in 2009).  I know John / Vir Unis is working on a new ambient album - check his soundcloud:

https://soundcloud.com/johnstrate-hootman

"A Snowfall In the Woods" and "A Recognition Occurs".  You can also hear his very fun covers of 80's songs in a very Johnny Cash sorta way.

Thomas - I'm just trying to say - wow you've got fantastic gear - sit down and use it for a bit... get to know what you have better - and then start shelling out more hard earned dollars...   that's all.

My best advice I can give is to just sit down and record with what you have...  start making the ambient music you're wanting to make.  You have the drive and the passion and the obsessiveness that drives me.  Once you dig in and start doing it you'll find those tools and processes that you're having the most struggles with and then it'll be easy to pinpoint what type of gear you need.

Wow, for just "jumping in" you've got quite the array of synths and gear!

Honestly -  you should be able to get just about every sound you can imagine out of what you have either by layering, or different combinations - you have a wealth of awesome sitting there.

DAW - you can do so much more in a computer than you can in hardware for recording audio or sequencing... I definitely encourage you to take previous advice and read up on the various ones for your platform (mac or win) - and try them out.  We all like different ones for different reasons.  Also how yuo like to work can be a big difference - you have a ton of hardware so I'm betting you want to record audio more than sequencing or more sample based. 

Soundcards / Mixers - tons of options - again - since so much hardware you likely want more inputs / outputs than a simple stereo unit. 

Monitors... it's all in the ears and learning how they sound in your room.  You can get almost any pair - and make them work and work well for you.  You just have to dive in and make a decision.  I bought a pair of Mackie 824's well over a decade ago and love them.  I have friends with just about every different brand name and they all love theirs.  If you like the Genelecs - get 'em. 

Seren said a good thing...  instead of more synths - look into effects.  You can process what you have and really change... everything about the sound.   

Welcome to ambient - the options are limitless - and this is a good forum to ask your questions and get good feedback. 

My best advice is to start recording!

Hahahahahahahah!   Yeah!    It's for our dog...  14 yr old blind dachshund...  has her bed, a pee pad, and some water.  Big enough for her to walk around a bit.  there's also a paper shredder next to the piano - essential to recording...  ;-)

Studio shots from this weekend - still a wreck - still a lot to do (including moving the modular down a shelf and general de-cluttering - but actually workable now.
