Your synth collection is fantastic and so is your other stuff. Just get a DAW and figure out whichever way you want to hook up your synths to your computer, and you'll be set.

Honestly, your setup is already better than mine. I don't even have a hardware synth.

Billow Observatory - Billow Observatory
Drifting, floating ambient, based largely on processed guitar. Expansive and beautiful.

Buy vinyl or digital or simply give it a listen: https://felte.bandcamp.com/album/billow-observatory

Good find.

Jon Hassell- Fascinoma

The best fusion of jazz and ambient music I've ever heard.

Eliane Radigue- Kailasha (Trilogie De La Mort- Disc 2)

More people should know about her. A true master of minimalism and drone music.

I wonder how many albums he has planned for this year. He only had one album come out last year, but he had 4 in 2012.

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

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.

Mike,

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.
