  1. Thanks for the comments guys. Aww, you didn't need to do that. Thank you. I'll add it to the first post.
  2. This one's old. Like, 2006 old. I just got the sudden feeling I should post it instead of sitting on it for a lifetime, so it went straight from the sequencer into the intarwebs. So, it's UNMASTERED! GASP! I'm actually in a bit of a hurry, so I'll just stop now. Afterdose - See No One EDIT: Afterdose - See No One (TechNology's master) C&C plz, kthxbye.
  3. Hi-Fi Download Second Compound@Mikseri.net I remember getting positive feedback here on a chill track of mine a while back, so I thought I'd post this one as well. It's not psydub/ambient per se, but there should be enough psychedelia to occupy your drugged up minds. (<-- see how fucked up I look after listening to it?) Comments/feedback appreciated. Oh and one other thing: do you usually get comfortable bandwidth when listening to my tracks? 'Cause I know I hate to stream anything from slow servers.
  4. Look, I haven't bragged about anything here. I never was completely serious about posting here in the first place. I don't see what's your point is in this post and I really don't see what did I ever post that contradicts what you said. Even so, what you said is reasonably accurate at best. Now, if you're pissed off about what I said to Mike A, all I can say is that's what I usually do when people come trolling at me.
  5. Ugh. Since you obviously know so much about the subject, why don't you tell us at which point the mix is compressed.
  6. I'm sure they wouldn't. I just wanted to pick the most offending parts of the track. IMO overcompression is particularly bad in full on goa tracks because they're very hard to mix in the first place. And let's face it: you really don't need all that volume for anything. Of course one could argue that overcompression is part of the sound, what makes it so full on. To me it just makes the busiest parts sound messy and plain unpleasant to listen to. I like some of their tracks, specifically from FOL, where the mastering isn't that bad. If you find IFO enjoyable as it is, that's great, you should. Personally I always wondered why I never could like the sound of IFO until I took a look at the graphs. Anyway, the flames have got way out of hand considering that my post was meant to be only a half-joking piss take on explaining why I can't like it.
  7. Which is a shame. Welcome to the loudness race. The fact is though that a good mastering engineer can make a mix with even little headroom sound like it breaths. IMO that's where IFO's gone wrong. You are intelligent.
  8. No, wait. I have proof. EXHIBIT A: Above a picture of Pleiadians - Electra from IFO in Sony Sound Forge. The white areas indicate headroom in each sample. EXHIBIT B: Above a picture of Pleiadians - Asterope from IFO in Sony Sound Forge. Now, my question to you, ladies and gentlemen, is how can you have power in music without dynamics?
  9. It's not entirely unfounded you know. Discogs search alone reveals 6 artists named Proteus, and that's excluding the derivatives.
  10. Yeah, definitely. Can't say anything for the quality of the work though, as I said, I just started messing around with it.
  11. Hm... Alright, well, I'll draw up some concepts and post them.
  12. You got someone working on this already? I've been playing around with vector graphics for a while and it'd be nice to see my work put into good use.
  13. Thanks for the comments guys. Too bad the labels I sent this didn't share your enthusiasm. But, uhm, yes... Anyone else?
  14. Since labels aren't releasing any music this year, (just random noises with kick drum ) I'm uploading this on my minisite. Maybe that way somebody can enjoy it. Get it here. Comments and feedback appreciated. Tips as to what labels might be interested in releasing this kind of sound would be cool too. EDIT: Since no one seems to care, I'll just list the tracks here. 1. Not Quite Dawn Yet (12:55) Mp3 (202kbps, 18,6mb) Stream - Download 2. Illuminate (10:00) Mp3 (213kbps, 15,2mb) Stream - Download 3. A Pig in Limbo(10:59) Mp3 (206kbps, 16,1mb) Stream - Download
  15. Meh. I've always found it pretty much completely unenjoyable. I never could get quite into it, wondered why that is. Until I loaded Electra up in Sound Forge that is. Some screenies for your enjoyment: Electra Asterope
  16. Haha, you know, that was supposed to be just a file name; the master at the end indicates that I'm done with the post-production. The name of the track is just "I Wanna Be Like a Glacier".
  17. Thanks for the feedback. While I'd agree that it sounds more like deep techno than anything else, it doesn't really progress like techno; the ideas I had for this track weren't ones you'd find in a typical techno track either. Certainly, sir. I'm currently experimenting with this sound more, so I'm sure there'll be some few tracks I'll upload eventually.
  18. k Did you by any chance ever listen to X-Dream's Radio?
  19. Whoa. That was quick. Thanks for the comments! Yeah, I can see what you mean. I personally think there's some elements in the synths that are typical of prog psy, but it's necessarily not the same sound that's going on in the scene at the moment, methinks. The reason I call my music psychedelic trance is because, well, trance has always been a psychedelic thing for me. And by trance I mean the state of mind. And that's what I want to do with my music, I want it to be entrancing. But taking a look back at prog sound's history, we've got albums like Atmos' Headcleaner. By today's standards there aren't many people who'd call it progressive psy, but that's where the genre derives from. And in reality, had it been created today, there wouldn't be much chance of it getting released on a prog psy label. *shudders at the thought* But I digress. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Nemo.
  20. WARNING! DEEP BASS IMMINENT! Quality headphones recommended for listening. So. Not much to say here. A new project, started it this spring. Mostly producing progressive psy with techy edge. To quote myself: Microtheft@Mikseri.net There's a couple of tracks there. The one I'd like comments on is "The Last Days". Want contract anylabel. Thanks for your time.
  21. Ho-leee... This sounds mad cool. Real deep, hypnotic, prog psy. Gotta download the samples and give it a good listen.
  22. Thanks for the feedback people! Yeah, I pretty much made the whole thing overnight, apart from some compression and normalizing before uploading it. I don't usually work in this genre, so it might take a while before you hear more goa from me. I've been working on some progressive that I'm looking to get released, though, but I doubt you'd be interested in that. Glad you liked it, though.
