Affliction of the Soul

By Tone Matrix on October 11, 2020 1:57 pm

Lately I'm kinda stuck in a lazy_familiar_notsocreative mindset.  I know I can't really expect every week to result with a monumental epic track.  So I guess at least I have a bunch of quiet_ambient_thangs to polish up.  The usual suspects here.  Stratus, Cinematic Piano & Helm thrown into a pool of Valhalla Vintageverb & Supermassive.  Tanks for listenin!

You really are a master of the quiet ambient tracks, so no complaints here.  Even on a "down" week there are a lot of pleasant sounds to zone out to and I think there are some interesting developments as the track progresses.

This is beautiful. It might be a little vanilla for you because you're the one creating the tracks, but I really like the way you're able to bring new elements and layer them in interesting ways. Really cool.

The title is quiet prominent and so I was expecting not less than something considerable. You did not belie my expectations. Hope, I did express myself right. This was tasteful and swell.

This is a simple track but I like the tasty drums, the simple hihat over the pads and the light synths. Good meditative track, that is just right music while I work. smile

You can't go too wrong with Valhalla verb. smile
If you're lacking inspiration, I notice you use a lot of the same software all the time.  I find using different tools help with creativity and inspiration.  Stratus in particular tends to steer into a particular sound as great as that sound is.

Always enjoy the epic tracks, but I really appreciate your “ambient thangs”, such a beautiful and symbiotic blend of sounds, everything has its place, delight to the ears

this track is a band aid for the soul

Yea I def know what you mean.  I guess part of me was trying to justify the spending splurge I went on with purchasing Stratus & Albion One in the same year.  I'm still trying to get a feel for both of them especially Albion One.  I still haven't tamed the strings as well as I'd like to.  Stratus is good for starting something off when I don't know where to go but yea it does sorta take me into those familiar ambient territories.  I need to get better at using it as a seasoning to something.

Ah, a nice breath of sound. Love it. You are great at this vibe, an inspiration to me for sure as I want to create some more calm sounds myself.

Today 7:01 am

Yeah Albion One doesn't excel at quieter tones really as good as it does sound.  It wins at epic though.   Great idea using Stratus as some seasoning.  I think that would work a treat!
