I've tested sounds that evolve so much over time with little interaction, that the position of the artist is more of a driver. Expecially with things like wavetable oscillators found for example in the Ensoniq Fizmo (transwaves).

''Ambient is about the sounds, melodies play a very minor role, one could argue that ambient is not even music.

And it wont be a wrong conclusion as a single note can be an entire ambient piece. So I think it is correct to argue that there can be no structure in an ambient piece.''


If I lock a key for an organic drone sound and go for a coffee is it me or the synth playing music? Extasis was referring to melodies, indeed you can have the synth (s) playing for you multiple layers of drone sounds, arps etc with little to none interaction from you.

Yeah that is the main reason I'm avoiding buying the Andromeda, too complex to program.
I have 2 offers in my city, one is the special one with the custom limited Hartmann panel for 3k. The other one is the regular silver techno style, but the guy is asking 3500 euros.

If they followed the same method of the V-Synth for programming it would be pure bliss, I have no trouble using it, actually it's a very interesting way of learning synthesis.

Yeah APK is a friend of Tomas, so my view of this forum changed after noticing that, it's a lost cause.

Yeah I changed my nickname name so what? Are you from the nickname police?

Funny you created the gear offtopic....

I clearly commented a gear quote.

care to post a link to your work ?


Care to post something that is not ambient, let's say something classic reading from a score? I would love to see that.

I'm not saying a beginner should start with a Les Paul Black Beauty, I'm saying that a person with a certain artistic and technical level in another area can jump to a more pro gear oriented environment.

If I'm used to work with high resolution material for clients, why should I downgrade just because I jumped to audio?

It's just data in the end, images, video, audio, whatever. The better and precise your tools are the better your work will be, it's just common sense.

It's very little to do with equipment, studios or whatever - it's the desire for self expression, that is paramount.

Man, why don't you mix then with some desktop pc speakers and the built in soundcard in your pc?

It has to do with the quality of the gear too
, or you might have trouble delivering the best sound to your public. That's why pro gear exists so you have access to tools way above the average consumer equipment. For me creativity is something spontaneous and accessible, that's why I love a lot of knobs and keys in front of me.

Yeah Kitaro made amazing tracks and he created polyphony by painfully recording over and over again to tape his mono synths. But do you want to go again to those times, do you want the technical part to be 98% and the rest the creative part?

I'm a Computer graphics artist, and a 1500 euros monitor is not enough to see if all my colors are correct, I still have to check my work in 3 or 4 monitors to make an average. And I'm not talking about particular colors, but a general feeling that is lost just by viewing your work in another screen. If your 150 euros monitor shows black as gray, that simple detail affects all the colors.

If my graphics card has very little VRAM I can't work with 4k textures and I have to work in little parts losing the work as a whole.

If all my work depends on a 150 euros TFT monitor I would be fucked, plain and simple, no matter how creative I am.

My answer to this thread is simple, deep inside you want all that pro gear, but because some of you can't make a living based in your unsuccessful work, you dig these quotes from famous people.

Of course Mike's music is great, to me that is obvious, he's one of my top artists. The question here is about visuals on ambient music and how that affects a track perception.

Why would you post this on the Hypnos website, specifically about Mike's music?  Seems like you could've made your point a different way.  Just my opinion.

Because it's an ambient related theme and I would like to read the opinion of others. Yeah you are right, I could made my point in a different way, but this is how it happened and I want to portray the conversation like it was :)

Hallå Extasis

Yeah that was the theme we were discussing the other day, but this real case with my friend here made me bring this subject to this forum :)

He was telling me that it wasn't because of the video and he really thinks that youtube track is actually better than the artists mentioned above. But I agree with you and his mind certainly has been tricked because of the video.

I've showed a friend some ambient that I enjoy, Mike Griffin, Oophoi and others in the same genre.

The guy said:

'It's lifeless simple and morbid'

On the other hand he said he enjoys a lot this one:

Dark Ambient Music - Frozen


Do you think a pretty video and images makes a bad/unnoticed track interesting and vice versa?

Hi Phobos,

I'm interested knowing what hardware synths did you used?

Eating with bare hands is also one of the oldest and true original ways of eating

Thanks for that, I'm always looking out for original ways to eat, I think I may stop using the digereedoos and use bare hands instead.
Bad, bad ambient...

You should use bare feet it requires more skills. I'm using nose these days, but I'm wayyy ahead of you.   ;)

Does anyone else have an Andromeda for sale?

I'd be willing to pay good money. I want the A6 like this one.

Are you in Europe?

Blasphemy!  Ah, well, to me the didge is the oldest, truly original acoustic ambient sound generator, but I suppose not everyone is going to "di(d)g" it.

Eating with bare hands is also one of the oldest and true original ways of eating. :)

I don't know, I never enjoyed primitive stuff in music.

I hear ya.

To me anything that sounds like a product is bad ambient:

Tomas Weiss

Mars Lasar

Dan Gibson (with few exceptions)

To name a few.

Hmmm...

A Waldorf Q + XT is a better investment than this giant synth.
When I listen to it on youtube it's hard to distinguish from my Q and the price...To close to a Yamaha CS80.
