Sounds terrific.

I have found it challenging to get a really deep, rich, dark smooth reverb sound from most plugins. They usually sound thin, narrow and resonant. I've turned mostly to Lexicon and Eventide to get this type of sound. I find i have to have a reverb with some type of modulation to thicken up the sound of the reverb creating a thicker cloud.

Great work!

 
Thanks again Chad,
They reckon the new Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle is hardware quality without the hardware, but its really expensive at around 1000, will have to check out the demo version to see what its like :)

Hi Chad
It was Lexicon Pantheon Vst, I really like this reverb and use it almost all the time.
I also use Glaceverb (but not on this track) which I also like a great deal, and whats even better is Glaceverb is FREE!!!

Thanks Chad,
The track is exclusive to the Drone Download Project and will not appear anywhere else, it is the philosophy of the DDP that all tracks donated are unreleased and will not appear on any other release. Personally its a philosophy I like, as when I contribute a piece to any compilation it will always be exclusive to that particular project.

How's the new album coming, Phobos? Will it be a physical release as on "Darkness Within"? I love DW, everyone on the Forum should definitely check this out!

Thanks drone on, the new album is complete and will be a physical release. I will post news of the release date when I know it and samples will follow :)

WOW!

Very powerful sounds here. Incredible and deep. Really enjoying the work on this. Was this created with acoustic sources that are heavily processed?


Thanks Chad, the sounds were created with hardware and software instruments, layered together, sampled and then processed, then more thinner layers added. Nothing acoustic a the moment.

Haha, England were bloody abysmal!


Abysmal with a capital A, absolute disgrace, its about time the overrated, overpaid, egotistical lot were sacked. These prats get thousands of pounds a week and all they can do is imitate a bunch of schoolboys kicking a ball around in the playground! >:( There must be other players out there who would give "their all" for the honour to play for their country.
You have to feel sorry for the fans who spent thousands of pounds getting there to watch those 4 matches

I think CD Baby let the artist set their own price for downloads, the artist pays them to put the release on there.

As for dowloads being thought of as not a "proper" album, this happened a few years ago with cassettes and Cds. Small independant labels would release their artists on cassette, others would do CD, artist on cassette would be eventually "ignored" as to be on CD meant you were a proper artist. Its a silly argument because any self respecting artist would put exactly the same amount of effort into the music regardless of what medium it was going to be released on.

Now we have download v CD/CDR, as well as CD v CDR, some people won't buy downloads, they want a CD but not a CDR, others are quite happy to buy downloads, and others are happy to buy a CD and a CDR. This will probably never go away, its the world we live in, and everybody is an individual.

There has always been poor quality stuff released, but you get that in all styles of music, not just Ambient, and while the download era is here with us, there probably seems to be more of it. If you look at various download sites you can come across some artists who are releasing 3-4 hour albums every week, I don't know how they do it, and your first thought is, that must be crap music maybe it is, maybe it isn't, I don't know so I can't say, I choose not to buy it.Maybe it isn't downloads that will kill off music, but peoples fear that a download isn't a proper album, and ultimately will choose not to buy it. So putting the ball back into the artists court, what do we need to do to convince otherwise?                 

Sorry if I rambled on a bit.

Happy anniversary John, and wishing you many more to come :)

I think press releases can be valuable as long as they are down to earth, and don't gush with the "stunnings" and "all time classic" syndrome. I would never feel right about describing my own music as stunning, etc! I think putting some sound samples of the album to work alongside the press release, gives those that are interested, the opportunity to read a bit about the album and to listen to bits of it also, that way they can get some idea of whether it may be worth having or not  ;)
