Thanks for the thumbs up on the music.
I also like that I can't remember how made some of the sounds, so they are unique to the album as i can't reproduce them.
Opening-Collection 1 -5 tracks from Databloem/APK. The original VA compilation of this series and still the best.CD
Great to be reminded of this one. The very first Databloem release 12 years ago, when Dennis Knopper and I started the label, later adding Dataobscura, and years later going our own ways ... Dennis (in Holland) turning Databloem into the excellent general electro-ambient store that we know today.
This album is unfortunately no longer available:
Gentleman...its your tone and honestly you provoked Tomas's to the point response, As well as mine. You know it is so, so dont be so surprised. Your perspective has great value and is well worth discussing but if you come across as you just have then you will be held accountable by forum members who release wonderful ambient music and who do not take to other ambient musicians production skills being questioned especially when the music is so damn "low volume" it seems ridiculous to even question overly extended bass.
You want to have a go at it...then do so with respect and everyone will listen! Of course sitting around a table discussing this with a pint of beer and things would be so much better understood.
Love & Peace
I agree with you..I do not want to attack people it takes a lot of energy.. but when there is people like Thomas with intention to just attack people on a personal level I must respond with the same coins... I said what I wanted to say.. I hope we can continue to speak about the new steve roach album now.
With all due respect, there is no "Low End issue". These tracks sound great to me and I am sure that the low end is intentional. What this comes down to is a matter of taste. I personally like some nice low end in my ambient music from time to time and even song to song, others here don't. I am not sure anyone could make the leap that this low end is due to a lack of skill, equipment or even something like a person's hearing.
I say this because the low end, love it or hate it taste wise is indeed well seated in the mix and not overblown, crackly or boomy.
Why do you call it ''Oceanscape''?
I don't feel any audible reference to oceans or ocean creatures, maybe someone else want to chime in..
The track is interesting to listen don't get me wrong.
What synths did you used?
ZCrossing_the_treshhold is the person I was wanting to click 'play' on. Some amazing gear flowing into that studio - and I want to hear what's coming out.
Thanks for your interest.
I'm totally newbie, with no musical experience, so this is my first track...
Novation Supernova II
Lexicon PCM 70 (Hardware)
Valhalla Shimmer (Software)
Recorded live with a Zoom H-6 (I'm still deciding the best interface to purchase)
The waves were recorded @ Ericeira beach and added in Reaper. All sounds programmed by me.
I hope you enjoy!
That's a good start. It's not that unique but you have good control over your frequencies on that track and your production overall is quite solid IMO. Good job.
This is a great place to get really constructive feedback, better than anywhere else I've posted my music.
Thanks for your input!
What do you recommend from you? Cheers!
