I'm fired up for the new Alio Die release. Listening today to a number of vocal-infused Alio Die albums, such as Apsaras, Eleusian Lullaby, Mei-Jyu, and Aura Seminalis.

It's up on Bandcamp already. Listened to one of the tracks on it and it's great. Might buy it too.

That's awesome. Can't wait to hear these releases.

Yeah, the economy is still horrible. Hope you find a job Mike. I'm going to have to get one myself after I get out of grad school in May, and I don't have that much experience. It's hard to start a career in an economy like this. That's for sure.

Flood and Ed Buller are excellent producers.

Speaking of stretching, my project actually started with a bunch of sound stretch experiments. They weren't too good but I did keep one of them on my Bandcamp, which is called Planetarium. It's not mixed well at all though but I think it has some merit. 

Anyways, one of my recent tracks, Desert On Mercury, was originally a sound stretch experiment. On that one, I used no reverb on my original sound source and after stretching it, I used equalizer on it. It can be effective if done properly. I think that track came out well

Overall, I've grown sour on sound stretching. It was fun for a while but I didn't feel like I was getting the drones I wanted from it. I've found that slowing down tracks by a little bit can be a lot more effective.

Phobos and Seren make great music.

I'm also an ambient musician, if you haven't figured out from my sig. I'm too shameless not to plug it myself. ;D

Strange Mountain- Sea Swords

Yet another great ambient album from Bandcamp. I feel like Bandcamp has been great for the genre.

Kevin Braheny- The Way Home

It's somewhat similar.

I like her 80's work a lot. Sacred Space Music is a classic.

I think you did the right thing. This is a very peaceful forum that's more civil than a lot of message boards I've seen and you can't let one person drive people away. Immersion seriously needed to chill out and he just didn't do it. He banned himself. I didn't think much of his antics at first but he kept getting worse and worse.

Immersion, you show up on a forum where many of the members are ambient artists or record label owners, or both. You know most of them believe they should have the right to control their own work, to charge for it if they want, and to assert the right to control how other people use it.

If you want to disregard the rights all creative artists, at least be respectful enough not to rudely announce, "I don't respect your rights. Even if you don't want me to take your music, I will take it if I want to." To do otherwise is just being a jerk.

It's like showing up in a room full of married men and saying, "I dispute your right to protect your wives' bodies, and also dispute the right of your wives to control their own bodies, and I will touch them if I want. You can't stop me, because I disagree with your conservative beliefs."

It's just not cool at all.


Thanks for posting this. I'll have to check this out sometime.


Games I've been playing lately:

Baroque (Wii)
Night Sky (3DS)
Realms Of Arkania: Shadows Over Riva (DOS)
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (3DS)
Sonic Adventure DX (PC)
The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS)
Wizardry 6 (PC)

Also got Lost In Shadow recently. Haven't played it yet though.

Thanks for the plays and downloads Hypnos! The album is doing better than any of my others. In fact, I'm at the top of the 2nd page under the space music tag for popular albums and on the first page under drone ambient. Not to brag too much, but this is unheard of for me.

Thanks again.

Nice low-end sounds. I actually tried to do some recordings before with nothing but really low frequency sounds but they didn't turn out well. This is much better.

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?
