Any other suggestions? I'll definitely look into Alchemy.

I'm looking for some quality VST synths that I can use to make some great soundscapes. I'm looking for something that's great but cheap, particularly below $100 and even better if it's $50 or lower.

BTW, this is just supposed to be about soft synths. I'm saying that only because the converter topic got so carried away into other things.  ;D

How long would it take you to do these binaural mixes?

That sounds pretty cool. I believe that Kevin Braheny and Michael Stearns have done that before to some extent or another.

Nice job with the production.

Avalon Sutra is one of my favorites too. Wasn't that billed as his "last album" when it was released?

Moskitoo - Mitosis
A unexpected Christmas gift from a family member. Japanese experimental pop meets ambient, from 12k.

Yep, it was. However, as all of us probably know already, he didn't retire after that.

I started listening to Strands and I love it so far. I need to listen to more of your music.

Everything and Nothing / Re: The new age music 'scene' ?
« on: December 19, 2013, 03:31:21 PM »
They were pretty savy with the marketing but like I said before, the demand just isn't there like it used to be. There was a legitimate new age subculture of sorts that existed at some point in the U.S., especially in California, but I think it's really fragmented at this point at best. Back in the late 80's and early 90's, it was an easier market to target and tap into. That's why Hearts Of Space was so successful at its peak.

Charlemagne Palestine- The Golden Mean



Great minimalist music imo. Has a drone-like effect.

I liked A New Noise. I listened to a few of the other more recent tracks and I felt like some of the sounds you used were a bit clichéd, like on Progression 1 & 2. It just felt like a typical opening theme to a movie with those space sounds. Also, you could have had a fuller range of frequencies on End Of The World. Some low end would have helped on that track especially.

Since you're a bassist, you could incorporate that instrument into your ambient music.

The whole new age movement in general is pretty much dead compared to what it was in the 80's and 90's, so I imagine that the new age music market isn't much better off, particularly in the States.

I love Terraform too. It's easily one of my favorite Roach collaborations.

Constance Demby- Aeterna

At this point, she was definitely really new-agey but this is the first time I've listened to this album in awhile and I'm liking it more this time. Here, she's still a great composer but I wish she would have still incorporated some more exotic instrumentation, like on here earlier albums. I loved Sacred Space Music and Sunborne because of the hammered dulcimer.

Is there really a good reason to continue this argument? Not that I'm against a good debate, but I feel like it's going in circles at this point.
