and the first is



https://serenffordd.bandcamp.com/album/aurora

music from two releases on Oophoi's Penumbra label in 2005 and 2006.

Recorded on very basic equipment - Aurora on a borrowed kids keyboard and Korg D-16 - no effects units or anything.
   Gateway and The Portal's Dreaming was on a technics keyboard and the same D-16.

Wow, over a year.....

It's been a year of change - what with moving house and friends dying it's been busy - lots of things I've been involved in have also changed...and I am just getting things back into gear for recording again.

Studio has been set up for a while and I've been tinkering with a piece that was on the go when we started looking for houses....uncertain what else I'll pick back up or whether to start with completely fresh.

I am working on getting some out of print and unreleased music onto Bandcamp

I have TCM3000 and Fireworx
Both do very different things - both have the ability to play around with settings and save as user patches.
I like them, not sure if they are cold and sterile (perhaps 'clean and clear' is another adjective) as I've made music that is both that and warm and fuzzy....
If I had the money I'd get a second M3000.

I've found that whatever reverb I use, I have favourite settings. I had Glaceverb as I like the potential for really shifting sounds around...and I tend to send all my sounds through a variety of manipulations....

Thanks. Really nice to get your take. I've noticed more ambient musicians use Lexicon, Eventide, and other brands and I was a bit curious what the consensus was on TC. I know Loren Nerell and Oophoi have used TC reverbs before but outside of that, I haven't seen too many ambient musicians talk about them.

I ended up ordering the M300 because I found one for pretty cheap. I know it's more of a budget version of the M3000 but it's probably still an upgrade over my Nanoverb at the very least.

Let us know what you think after you've played with it for a while.

and keep an eye on ebay - that's where I got my fireworx for 250.......

A number of Terry Pratchett discworld books found in a charity shop:
Soul Music
Mort
Thief of Time
Interesting Times
The Colour of Magic
Lords and ladies
Small Gods

I have 'Electronic Universe 1' and 'Fragrance'

I like both for very different reasons - the electronic universe is very spacey and fragrance manages to sound like the music perfumeries would have made....

Passing by Steve Roach - extended version of a track called (I think) The Passing Time from a compilation album years ago - loved the original and really enjoying this one

Robert Rich + Alio Die - Fissures

Probably considered a classic by now, but I only just heard it for the first time today. Great album. Distinctly different from the solo albums I have from either artist.


Great Album indeed 8)

Glaceverb and Ambience are solid freeware reverbs.
I can't get Glaceverb to work on my new windows 10 computer - any tips or clues as it has some very nice sounds and is very easy to tweak

I agree in the ways that the internet has helped open things up - much more music, including my own, which would just not be available in any way otherwise.

I think there is a tendency to think it is all just a downward spiral - and although there is merit in that perception, I don't want to underestimate each person's ability to catch something new and have worlds open up for them - CDs, vinyl and cassettes have not disappeared, neither have hi-fi shops (although much reduced they all are [our local Tesco has started selling LPs - including Dark Side of the Moon and a couple of Bowie's albums!!!!]).

Some of the younger people listening to music on phone speakers will one day discover the depth of the sound from a real speaker - and technology is improving hugely, our new TV speakers sound so much improved I grudgingly admit the development.

What I do find upsetting is the continued pressure and assumption that I 'consume' music - I do not, any more than I simply consume the air I breath or the food I eat.
   I listen to music - savour, enjoy, anticipate, allow my emotions to swell and be moved. the music makes me think, touches my imagination, calms me, excites me, rouses me challenges me etc etc.....

Just bought Doombient.two - want to give it a proper listen on something better than the computer speakers....

Flicking along the tracks as I did I thought the music was varied and am looking forward to listening properly.

I did not find it as aggressive as you described, but then listening to something that recorded such a difficult experience as you describe is going to have an impact....

welcome Ryan,
The forum does indeed pass through cycles of quiet and busyness - a bit like galaxies, some hot active stuff here, some empty space there....

But it is always a good place to be
