I think this has been a great excersise for you to get your music to a wider audience by offering it as a free download. I think you stated earlier in the post that it had been downloaded well over a hundred times on the first day alone, how many Cds did you sell originally? Not as many as the number of downloads most probably. So it has worked, the music has been heard by a wider audience, and this will attract people to the new one. Even people who may not neccessarily like a particular style of ambient would take it because its free and there is no risk, and that might win you new fans, and I hope it does. Like you say it is about the music and getting it heard, so from that point of view I would say it has been successful for you. If you decide to release a CD in the future then hopefully more people would buy it as more people would be familiar with your music due to the free downloads :)

'Orcus' cover

Artwork by Kati Astraeir

Come on Pete, you can't just post a picture of the artwork and not tell us the release date!! We want to know when we can get our grubby little hands on it  ;D

Hi Matthew,
Downloaded Maalbeek a few days ago and have listened to it a couple of times. It really is an excellent album, it has some beautiful passages, thank you for putting it up for free download.
I look forward to the release of Koude Handen

I have heard that T-Racks 3 has been getting some good reviews.

I have found T Racks 3 to be excellent, I used various plug ins in Adobe Audition 3 for the mastering of Darkness Within and on my next one Monolith, I then got T Racks and Re mastered Monolith, it sounded so much better, I also used it on my recently posted track on the Drone Download Project.  It really is an excellent piece of software and would recommend it to anyone without hesitation. Available for Mac and PC you can download  a demo version here

Welcome Cole :)

Great Artwork!  It works really well with the Digipak format. Going to check out the samples. ;)

I am using Soundcloud and have found it very useful, I have a free account at the moment but will probably upgrade to the Lite version later when I have more stuff to put on.
I agree that the streaming is very good, no dropouts or stuttering and being able to post comments along the timeline of the track is superb
I would definately recommend it to anyone, and the option of being able to choose a free account is  good way to start off to see if it suits your needs :)

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 :)

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

That England vs Algeria match sure was pitiful.

I couldn't have put it better myself, pitiful indeed :(

Darts   ;D
