There are people who come to this forum and really add to it and make it an interesting place....some of those people are musicians that are not affiliated with Hypnos and use the forum as a promotional tool, they give and take so to speak. Others come here just for "self promotion" and offer nothing else. Personally Im cool with it all, so I would prefer the forum dedicated to non Hypnos new releases, where guest, forum member, passer by or whoever promotes his or her new music, other than Hypnos release which have their own section.
Im interested in discovering new music...my own taste will determine what I buy. I do like the "Other Ambient Music" forum. I think that will work well and kept discussion & promotion somewhat organized
I dont think I answered your question Mike.....just some more thoughts.
Also the 2 gear forums as Forrest suggested could become one.....for me sound sources, pre amp or mixer, fx, monitors and cables are all part of the same long chain. I suppose a discussion of where to put microphones on a marimba could warrant being placed in a dedicated recording forum, not sure how much recording technique type discussions we have here.
All in all the forum is coming together nicely......Thank you Mike
