Superb album, a definate contender for album of the year. IMO 2015 has been a very good year for dark ambient releases

Pete,I think they allow the albums to be streamed in full for a limited amount of time now.

I agree with Ekstasis here, track three I thought is by far the best track of the four tracks on the album.  I haven't bought much of Steves' stuff over the past years, as his releases over that time, have to me, been disappointing, and this is no disrespect to Steve, they just haven't "grabbed me" like before. Having said that you can't blame him for trying something different, I  hope it works out for him :)

Here are a couple of items as an alternative. I quite like the idea of the Zoom, as it can be used alone or with a computer, so kind of gives you the option of linking with the computer if you really need to. The Tascam also looks an impressive beast, and these are just a small selection of what is out there.

Personally I don't think I would leave a computer and DAW behind, I would just incorporate more hardware instruments into my set up.

Julio, do you think that maybe its the DAW you are using that isn't quite right for you?

Also Paul, if you pm me  the Oophoi needed titles I may be able to help with some of those.

It usually starts with me, by picking a sound or sounds that I like, and then I just play something, anything. I use Cubase Artist as my DAW and this has a really neat feature called retrospective record, which captures what you are playing even if you haven't hit the record button. ( Not sure if any other DAWS have this feature?) I have my keyboards set to different midi channels, so if I play something that I like at some point, it is there. Click on retrospective record and it appears on a track. I can then get rid of the rubbish and keep the bit or bits I like and then separate out the different midi channels onto separate tracks. I can then build upon what I have got.  I had tried in the past to set off with pre conceived ideas of how the piece should be, but it never seemed to work out that way in the end. So now I just take it as it comes, and see what happens.

Had a listen on BC to this over the last couple of evenings, very nice work and a nice looking package too. Going to put this on my BC wishlist and hopefully get the disc before they all go.
