Really like the bright, organic drones on this one.

Cheers !

Dean's Harmonium and my processing / production.

When the album was released, a japanese feller sent me a picture of him holding a copy of the CD(r) he had bought in a zen-type garden in Japan - I was touched.

That's pretty cool. You two did an excellent job on that album and I need to listen to more music for both of y'all.

I enjoyed it. It is somewhat reminiscent of Fripp and Eno. A little bit of Popol Vuh in there too.

Decided to release it a little bit early. This is a shorter release than my last one. Enjoy.

Thanks for sharing that track. I enjoyed it.

Feel free to check out my Bandcamp. I make ambient music too.

R.I.P.

My favorite VST synth maker. Such great quality for a great price.

I still like to experiment with it sometimes on certain samples but usually not on a whole track. It leaves too much of its own mark on a whole track.

12
There are some decent textures but I can definitely hear the Paulstretch, which is a turn off for me personally. I used to use it a lot when I first started out (Fun fact: my project started out as a sound stretch experiment) but I soon realized that it wasn't too good in large doses.

I'm really glad Loren Nerell told me about this album.

Everything and Nothing / Re: What is the Hypnos Forum to you ?

It is a great place, its friendly, you can discover new artists and you can get excellent advice, both directly and indirectly, on just about anything to do with music, not just ambient, although ambient is the reason I came here. There are musicians here who I have the deepest respect for, although they may not know it.
I look upon Hypnos as a "serious" forum, that is "serious" in a good way, the advice you get will help to steer you in the right direction.

Pretty much this. I originally joined to spread the word about my music but there are a lot of knowledgeable people here, whether it be the veterans of the genres or the fans that post here regularly, and it has helped me to realize that there's plenty of great new ambient music out there. I love this forum.

At first, I wasn't feeling it but after 6 minutes or so, I felt like it got better and now I'm glad I didn't turn it off so soon.

Duff Egan - Kenosis Loop

Another strong drone piece from Duff Egan.

Thank you very much for taking the time for feedback Castleview, that is much appreciated. I will be sure to return the favour and listen to some of your creations.

No problem.

Still one of my biggest influences.

I'm on the fifth track. At first, the album hints at a strictly traditional ambient sound but after the first track, there are some interesting samples and sounds popping up that I really wasn't expecting, especially in Perception Shift. Really good stuff so far.

Im 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 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.

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?

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.
