Why do you call it ''Oceanscape''?

I don't feel any audible reference to oceans or ocean creatures, maybe someone else want to chime in..

The track is interesting to listen don't get me wrong.

What synths did you used?

Z
Crossing_the_treshhold is the person I was wanting to click 'play' on.  Some amazing gear flowing into that studio - and I want to hear what's coming out.
Thanks!


Thanks for your interest.
I'm totally newbie, with no musical experience, so this is my first track...




Some info:

Synths:

Roland Juno-60
Novation Supernova II

FX:

Lexicon PCM 70 (Hardware)
Valhalla Shimmer (Software)

Recorded live with a Zoom H-6 (I'm still deciding the best interface to purchase)

The waves were recorded @ Ericeira beach and added in Reaper. All sounds programmed by me.

I hope you enjoy!

That's a good start. It's not that unique but you have good control over your frequencies on that track and your production overall is quite solid IMO. Good job.

This is a great place to get really constructive feedback, better than anywhere else I've posted my music.

Thanks for your input!

What do you recommend from you? Cheers!

Oceanscape. That's definitely my best work.

Hello Crossing The Threshold,

I agree, it's a nice start.  The mix seems a little thin.  I would bring in more of that mid-range drone, and maybe have it modulate into some other chords for variety a little sooner.

I would also try to resist the temptation of verbing the sounds too much.  Maybe leave some sounds in the foreground for contrast, with just a touch of echo or verb.

Good luck,
Forrest

Thanks Forrest.
I followed your advice regarding the mid-range drone, it looks indeed better!

Cheers!

Ok let us know if it's really a gold corn like you said.

47
Thanks for your input my friend.

Yes, the Orion is highly regarded and their custom usb chip seems to deliver the promises of 32 channels in/out.

Indeed, I have purchased the Dangerous Source, but i'm currently using it with another workstation with my Neumann KH120 monitors. I use it mostly to listen other artists tracks in flac format, while I do my daytime job.

I've narrowed it to these options:

Monitors:

Neumann KH310, I was inclined first to Adam A77X, but I was so impressed with my little KH120, that their 3 way system must be awesome.

Interface:

1. Orion + Another Dangerous Music Source

2. SSL Alpha-Link MADI AX + RME Madi PCIE + Dangerous Music Source.

3. Midas M32.

My favorite ambient master!

4. An Aerial View

5. Signals from the Great Beyond

I'm PC.

The problems range from half-assed buggy software, to no sound, clicks and noises during recording, non functional DB 25 outputs, overheating, non-recognition by usb port and the list goes on.

I don't like the general attitude of Antelope at the forum, when people report the problems they always throw marketing BS or presumable success stories in the mix.

The original person reviewing the Antelope, who is also from gearslutz staff, received a non-functional Audio Zen, then he was telling that the fault was from the parcel delivery company and some posts later he changed the story to ''I had a beta unit for testing''.

I dunno, my impression after some threads is that Antelope seems a shady company. Now they are releasing some audiophile clocks for 5k. Again I have trouble trusting audiophile companies, especially when they release ''esoteric'' audiophile stuff.

Anyway I should have done my homework before considering the Audio Zen.

I could order and be lucky, but I don't know, the general feeling around them is unreliability.

Thanks Paul!

Yeah you are right about the definition, it's all pro, but I was thinking high end above 5k mark, when I said ''middle weight'' :)

I've lost interest on the Zen Studio because a lot of users are reporting all sorts of problems @ gearslutz...

So back to where I started...


51
As you may know, I'm building a ''middleweight'' ambient recording home studio. I've been undecided since the beginning (about a year and a half ago), which interface to pick up, so I've been buying everything else, leaving the interface to the end.

First I was looking into a all in one solution, the Yamaha 01V96i, because of the tactile feel.
Then I was thinking that it would be better to focus on the conversion instead of a full kit, investing later in a Mackie MCU pro DAW controller.

Then I was interested in the RME Fireface UFX, the drivers are rock solid they say, but unfortunately it only has 12 inputs, to expand it I would had to buy another AD/DA converter and plug it by adat. So the price would be like the Antelope Orion or more...

As you may know, I own several digital and analog synths, 10 by now.

So I bought a lot of Mogami cables and a TRS patchbay and I've been doing some ambient recording tests using my synths with my 6 track Zoom H6. I'm so happy with the results, that I can't wait any longer for a proper audio interface.

So...

I went back again to the Antelope Zen Studio, now that should be properly reviewed.
I've noticed besides the 12 inputs on the box, it has an additional 8 inputs by DSUB 25 connector, making a total of 20 inputs, perfect for my current array of synths, with no additional cost of another adat converter.

What you think of this kit:

Zen Studio

Mogami Gold Multicore TRS <> DSub 25 (Plugged into my TRS Patchbay)

RME Raydat

What do you think of the Orion 32?

Would it be a better investment? An alternative kit involving the Orion 32 maybe?

Then the Midas M32 is around the corner for 3K + euros, arghhh! :)

Thanks!

52
Well I'm not surprised...

Tomas has the most harsh comments here, I don't understand why..

My suggestion is to buy somewhere else, maybe other labels that ship to Russia?




53
I like this one too.

But like many listeners, I would prefer if he went in the same vein of ''Structures from Silence'', in my opinion a well thought composition of layered sounds (thinking about the track ''Quiet Friend'), the latest works seem more random, like the stuff Ran Kirlian does...It's easy to release albums like that. ::)

54
No physical volume knob, what the heck? 2 pieces will create more cumbersomeness...

55
This is my current portable dac. Zoom H6.

30 hours of operation, 6 track recorder and audiointerface.

The front mics can be detached. So besides being a great recorder with pristine audio quality it can fit in bag and be a great vacation partner too serving as a usb powered dac.

I was recording today at the beach and the quality is just mind blowing.

It comes with a nice price tag and Richard Devine recommends it :)






56
I've ordered some Mogami and Van Damme, I will make some tests before I bulk purchase.

57
Ok just let us know about your findings ;)

58
Yeah, the one I posted before didn't had an headphones plug...Indeed it has the burr brown chip like the Dangerous Music Source and other high end gear.

Another company you might want to check is:

59
I have a Vaio laptop and it's reliable, I can't vouch about their other products tho...

Anyway, this one should be easier to listen live and it has some positive reviews online.
