Description : First of all I would like to thank Zero2zero for helping me, giving tips, feedback, and just generally bieng a good friend.

Second of all, I'd like to apologise for not replieng to comments and not really reviewing many things, but hopefully I can get back to all of you at a later date.

So moving on to the track now, this is an 85 BPM track thats been in the works for just one or two weeks, its only 1:30 at the moment in length, but I do want to make it longer. Its the first time I've tried ambient, and hopefully not the last, so I'm not actually too sure if this is ambient or not.

There are three main sounds in this track, the pad, which has a white noise LFO attactched to a fruity free filter, the downward sweep effect which was made using a failed sound I made with the speech synthesizer, then added a kore player effect to it, and the other one is a stretched hiphop drumloop I made, but wasn't really worthy of using in anything.

If and when I finish the track, I will allow downloads if you want to download it.. or if you really want it, then contact me through my profile.

Hope you enjoy the track!

    Ste this is a great start man... I like where you're heading with this. I too am working on some Ambient stuff. I think just keep adding sounds and textures as you go... Also what Bpm is this? oops never mind... maybe drop it down to 70bpm... If your comp can't handle all the instruments just render or export it as wav then reopen it in your DAW then add to that. You might lose a lil bit of sound quality but when you master this you can boost it some to gain what you had loss. This is what I had to do and it seems to be working so far. Hope this helps... let us know if you finish this sucker up...

    I got a new soundcard wired up yesterday, I've had it for a year and I've only just found out, so now this track is running perfectly on FL without any crackles.. only problem now is the massive latency.. oh well, I'd rather have a higher buffer length than quicker response time.

    Thanks for the review, and good luck with your ambient tracks, I'll go check them out now (or later if they aren't uploaded :P)

    Ste :)

    some good ideas here brother...I think for me you need to inject a little more space.... maybe change the bpm(not sure if that would work)... it a great start... maybe a few sfx in the first 30 seconds would make it wider ... spacey glitch sounds or something like that would work well with the lfo's... nice anyway looking forward to hearing the finished track... keep 'em coming brother

    I think I'm going to keep the BPM the same, add more effects, stretch a dnb loop about 8 times and play around with the LFOs some more, I think it might sound good with those added.

    Thanks for the review!

    Ste :D

    aw man, if z is givin you advice, its gonna be solid. its got good atmosphere. i like the floating feeling in the pads. nice and spacey, with no tethers to the ground. keep at it cause this is good ste.

    Will do, just need to add more pad melodies, more FX, and just generally more sounds I think.

    Thanks for the review!

    Ste :D

    Im not much into ambient but i cant resist anything with your name slapped on it! lol I was gonna come in here and say this has a lot of potential, but i was beat to it just like you beat me to saying "This tune sucks" on Nicks song lol. Anyways i like it, but i definately think it needs more. I know you were planning on adding more anyways, but im just saying in the sense that it couldnt go like that for too long. Another leading synth or some bass would do the trick. But since your trying to do ambient make sure the Synth or bass is not too speedy (obviously) but that it stands out from the rest and says "Look at me, im the lead!" lol -Gabe

    Peace Love Jesus!

    Yeah, I need to add an extra bunch of pad melodies after this I think, and I think more FX in the opening is needed as well, as Numberjack mentioned.
    But I think that if I was to use a synth, I'd have to stretch it through paulstretch.

    Thanks for the review!

    Really good vibes on this track! I like the sounds you've used to build it up! This has a lot of potential! I can't wait to hear where you take it! Nice one!

    I think I'm going to add some more sound effects to it.. I think a stretched piano note might sound really nice, so I might try that.

    Thanks for the review!

    I like what I hear so far, this has a lot of potential. I think at the present time you have several avenues to take with it. I can hear this becoming a dance track if the right beat is put with it, or it can stay ambient and be just as good. Good job so far I look forward to hearing the final result.

    I think I could make it into an interesting dnb track, but as of now, I really want to keep it as an ambient track, or if not, perhaps add drums so I can call it chillout.

    I'm glad you liked the track though, thanks for the review!

Description : This is for my friend Danke who can't sleep at night. Yes, heat, heat...I guess Africa is hotter, but don't let the title and intro as well, deceive you! This is not African music nor the imitation of it. It's just a picture of starry African sky at night, painted with my european musical sensibilities and some imagination. So this is for Danke in the first place and then maybe for anyone who would like to fall asleep.:)...
Good night!:)

Description : Dear Loopers...Let Ed and me take you to the world of yet another musical fantasy born out of our latest collab efforts. Ed provided basic structure of the track with ever solid rhythm section, tasty synths and vocal pads while I took
on a role of pretending to be multi-instrumentalist again by smuggling in some sweet strings, bulgarian flute, celtic harp,
unexpectedly blurry piano and this time a tiny bit of real live acoustic guitar...what an adventure for a vst/keyboard guy..:) As always
my sincere thanks to Ed not only for letting me enjoy his great musical company but also for still standing as one of the firm pillars of Looperman society !

Description : I went to the beach and set up my stereo recording mic under a gazebo near it (I apologize for some of the air gusts being recorded haha; we had a strong SE wind that day :P Tried my best to place it out of the wind); wanted to record myself playing live and do some cheesy roleplay in the process - wanted to make it feel like the listener was sitting there beside me. ** This is what the beach looks like: http://static.travel.usnews.com/images/destinations/80/south_padre_island_main.jpg **

Lo and behold, I'm about halfway through the song when my buddy Mark, a friend from college, heard me singing and decided to join me (he seems to never part with his guitar lol).

The expression on his face was that of confusion as to why I had my mic with me and a audio-capturing device, which I plugged into an outdoor electrical plug that the gazebo owners installed lol (I've done recordings like this before but didn't like the results; we messed up a little at the end but I was like meh it's not bad anyways.) but I'm glad he didn't say it out loud or it would have ruined the recording lol. Luckily, I was playing a song he and I wrote together some time ago, so he was able to just jump right in. He's a great guitar player.

Even though it was a little awkward at the end since we hadn't seen each other for like 4 months (you might be able to tell by the way I responded to his "thats so cool" comment haha), I think it turned out just fine. It was a lovely evening and the clouds were all poofy and happy. Lots of people were there too, though I made sure to sit far away from all of them. Ahh, it was a beautiful day. I'm glad I live by the ocean :P * Just kidding, I recorded this in my studio; though I do live close to the water, this was not recorded there :P I did everything, down to the wind blowing into the mic, except for the sound of water and the kids in the background. I got those sounds here: freesfx.co.uk/login/

The guitars and vocals were one-takes to give a more realistic feel. No pitch-correction or autotune. Just wanted to try making another soundscape (or whatever you want to call this :P) about what it's like to live by the ocean.

Description : While I concluded the previous year with the shortest track ever uploaded it seemed only appropriate to begin the new one with my longest track ever. And funny enough I used one and only instrument for this noodling marathon, the celtic harp....and I really couldn't help it, it was just dragging on and on and on...haha...so I think that anyone who could possibly listen to this from start to finish must be a real listening hero..:)^^

Description : Glen Cloy is one of the glens of Antrim (Tumbleweed's county) in Northern Ireland. The little people, actualy fairies, populate all of them and they all have very old ghost stories that have been told for centuries (and still are)...This one is about Shaman of old and his journeys through the spiritual world...That sums up what Ed told me about the concept for our 7th (how convenient^^) collab work. The main core of the track is Ed's work and the original length was 5:18, but I wouldn't have been Orlando if I didn't tempt to compose my longest intro to date (3:10) to inject my own fantasies about little creatures of Glen Cloy (soft spot for spiritual world..hehe..). Other than that I also added some synths arrangements and vocal samples for the rest of the track and probably ruined it a bit..haha..but that's how collabs are sometimes..:)^^.....All my thanks to Ed...and Irish ghosts ofcourse...

Description : Last time when I uploaded my track called "The Ring Of Saturn" many reviewers stated that it should belong under "ambient" category, since I tagged it as "cinematic"... so this led me to decision to give you the mother of all ambient pieces and here it is!:)Yet, it has something in common with the previous one....you won't need your sleeping pills... again..:)^^

Description : It's been a while since my last upload, yet here is finally the new one and it's 'dangerous' as it gets cause this time I ultimately decided to dedicate this thing to my dear friend Ed, the man well known to Looperman audience as Tumbleweed.. He has been my huge inspiration for those past few years and always will be. Luckily we've made some pretty decent stuff together and more is to come. Working with Ed helped me to improve alot and this composition is now my way of saying 'thank you' to him and music should express my gratitude better than words....One might expect this will be Irish (or Celtic) music, but it's not necessarily the case...as the title suggests it's merely the touch of it....it's like a mirage in the highland mist and it's full of orlandesque crap to be honest...haha...yet I decided to include a tiny snippet of a famous traditional Irish song at the very end of the track and I bet you will recognize it instantly ...particularly for the lads with Irish roots this shouldn't be a problem...:) So, Ed...put your headphones on and be merciful my friend...:)

UPDATE: 10th March 2016 / Today I decided to do an
alternative mix of the track...and hell yeah, I think it sounds much better now !:)
