I’ve created a new artist for the (dark) ambient direction I’ve been heading in recently.
The album I’ve uploaded, Contact, is a collection of tracks which mostly originated in VCV Rack but were then mangled with tools like PaulxStretch and layered with other stuff, as well as more VCV Rack for effects.
- Bitwig and various plugins for reverb and delay
- VCV Rack
- Make Noise 0-Coast
- Elektron Digitakt
- Korg NTS-1
That’s awesome, thanks ablaut! And thank you to you and @marc_boule for giving it a listen, it’s very much appreciated.
Just listening to it now, truly mind expanding!! Just bought it. Where do the samples come from?
Thank you so much @ady34, I’m glad you like it!
Do you mean the talking on the first track? That’s public domain sample from https://commons.wikimedia.org and is part of an HP Lovecraft reading, Dagon I think. The only other samples I can think of are the occasional percussion hits bathed in reverb.
wonderful music, thanks for sharing
This is great, but I didn’t think it was particularly dark! It’s good though, the first track with the vocal sample was reminiscent of FSOL.
I don’t listen to other people’s work enough on the forum, so I’m making an effort to go through and check out everything posted in the last few months and comment when I get a minute. Enjoyed this one.
I know the first one isn’t very dark but I thought the rest was, kind of. Looks like I need to step up the darkness! Thanks for checking it out, much appreciated!
Yep you’re right, I commented after the first track and it did get darker. I wouldn’t mind it dialled up a bit though!
Nice album and nice textures.
Some pieces not dark enough for my taste, but that’s just my opinion.
Especially the first two songs are too friendly, like a nice sunny day.
But Underbelly is my favorite, this one is great!
A new EP, this one being (even) less dark. I made this one almost entirely with my hardware rack.
Yep not very dark, but an excellent listen! Were the effects all hardware too, or did you use VCV/plugins for processing?
I enjoyed that, cheers.
Awesome! (I’m listening Skew track from BC).
Also I’ll give a try concerning the most recent album, Emergence.
Thanks for checking it out. Almost everything was done in the rack, I think I added some distortion on the last track in Bitwig and there is a bit of EQ and filtering here and there but otherwise all the fx are in my rack. I don’t think I used VCV at all in these ones although I have been using it quite a bit in another batch I’ve got ready - these were the first ones I recorded with my rack so they developed as they were more or less.
@Ohmer Thank you, very much appreciate you giving it a listen!
