Something new, a true WIP. Any feedback on any aspect of it welcome. It's feeling a little sloshy and busy atm.

i really like this one. especially the wwwwooooowww sounds and how they fit with the rest. extremely ear bathing loveliness, it's relaxing :) (i'm not too good at wide focusing on the story either, small details and general vibe is what i usually notice fwiw.. so not very useful feedback but.. i could listen to an hour of this..)

sweet, thanks man. I just appreciate that you enjoyed the sounds.

 

I've weirdly got a second/different wip track now, a bit darker, that grew out of this one, i'll send it on SC.

Thanks man; one of my recent tangents. Was trying to think about the larger structure, which is difficult for me, without focusing on sound design or note placement.

All good TheBro. I like a variety, but have been moving in a glitchy direction I suppose. 

 

I don't hate your stuff, but yeah, not quite adventurous enough for me ;)

I listened to ndy_prate very loudly, much louder than I listen to music most of the time and it filled my room with sound beautifully. i like how clear yet warm and organic everything sounds even at its harshest and most difficult moments. the reverb is very balanced, kinda dry and wet sounding at the same time.it's like some modern interpretation of freejazz

 

listened to the second track at same volume. again a very nice balance of dry and wet sounds and interesting progressions. definitely the sort of ambient that wakes you up from the trance from time to time by interesting sonic surprises

Yeah, ndy_prate definitely has some harsh elements throughout... probably could use better mixing but not really sure to mix sounds that are all over the place. I always appreciate the feedback Darrel C. Hungstorm... freejazz comparison is high praise. Definitely some free improv'-ish approach to a good amount of what i've been doing lately.

 

@reverb, glad you think i'ts balanced cause my usual reverb vst is not working so i've been settling for another that I'm not totally happy with.I am often going for a sweet spot thats not too wet or dry, not always sure it works out that way.

dunny, the harsh parts sound intentional and are still within reasonable and enjoyable range

as for mixing a complex mess of sounds, adaptive EQs might be a good choice. just recently discovered a tool called smartEQ which constantly changes the EQ curve in a way that the sound approaches the spectrum of pink noise and you can adjust the speed at which it does that. kinda hit and miss if it improves the sound but can be useful
