  1. Hello everyone. I wanted to share my latest track with you. Here I tried to write a music with a chilled atmosphere, but also with a "danceable beat", like some of the songs on Youger Brother's album The Last Days Of Gravity. I hope I don't sound arrogant by saying this Here is the link: http://download.yousendit.com/FC2EDA992C30D243 I hope that you will like it.
  2. PSYTRANCE 1) Mindsphere - Inner Cyclone - Metapsychic 2) VA - Twist Dreams - Suntrip 3) Goasia - From other spaces - Suntrip 4) Sound Field – Audio Surfin' - Oxygen 5) VA - Pure Planet vol. 2 - Kagdila CHILL-OUT 1) Sync24 - Source - Ultimae 2) VA - Oxycanta : Winter Blooms - Ultimae 3) Younger Brother - The Last Days Of Gravity - Twisted 4) Asura - Life² - Ultimae
  3. Is it a santur on the left ? Do you play it ?
  4. I'm interested too! Tell me if you find something. I only found plugins that work like the sequencer in Rebirth : they don't have the "piano" on the left. I'd rather use the main sequencer of cubase than those. I just started using Cubase but I'm not fond of the VST included. So I use mostly the synth and effects of Reason. It seems you can't send anything in Reason : I wanted like to use the Scream 4 as a send effect, but couldn't find how. And now I learn that it's impossible. Very disappointing. Do you people know how to use the automation in Cubase for a synth in Reason? It's probably very easy, but I'm really a noob with cubase and the manual is so loooooong.
  5. Looks like a censored "foot fetish" picture . But a very nice cover indeed.
  6. And I thank you for that. Hopefully I'll be part of this new wave in a year or two :wank: But still, I wouldn't mind some unreleased track by Astral Projection or Etnica. It seems you're still looking for uptempo track. Maybe something by Ka-Sol ? Is he still making music anyway ?
  7. Superb, as always. Nothing more to add really. He must be too shy or too modest to do it himself. But I agree that music of such quality should get released.
  8. I think it's one side of the story. I wouldn't pay too much attention to what he's saying. "then they wanted to receive the money and the conversation was: astral proj.: "WHERE IS MY MONEY!"???!!! party producer: "WHERE IS MY LIVE ACT"???!!! astral proj.: "I WANT MY MONEY"!!!! IM FROM ISRAEL"???!!! party producer: "OH YEAH; AND IM FROM PORTUGAL"!!!! and the party producer beat in him twice" I cannot believe that. This is too ridiculous to be true.
  9. Most people don't I think. Because there's so many ways to discover new music nowaydays thanks to internet (not only P2P, but also free music and Dj mixes) and radio isn't the most convinient. But I wouldn't say it's outdated. I still listen to talk radio a lot, and from time to time to music relatedstation too, just to stay in touch with the "real world", to see what's popular right now. By the way, I heard psytrance for the first time on a national french radio(FUN Radio), and so did many other french people I think.
  10. Interesting discussion. That doesn't prove anything but my favorite artist is a woman. I'm trying to guess why someone would want to be a musician. And I think that "imitating others" has a lot to do with that. For exemple when a guy has a friend playing guitar in a band, he might want to do the same and be like him. When most producers in electronic music are male, how many women will want to imitate them? Few women artists ==> few women interested in becoming artists. Like a vicious circle. It was just an idea... What's wrong with goa parties? I'd like to know, I've never been to one.
  11. Music is a big part of my identity. But my greatest passion is listening to music. Making music is more like a hobby for me : I could live without it, but I can't imagine myself ever losing my passion for music (listening I mean). I often hear artists saying they couldn't live without their art, so I guess I can't call myself an artist. Do you see yourself as an artist ?
  12. You can find them at a lower price here and probably on other websites as well.
  13. The only track I know from Antonio Testa is the one from VA - Albedo, and it's a very nice one. One of the best on the compilation in my opinion. I'm more worried (and curious at the same time) about all the other names like sgnl_fltr, bob tracker, amos.
  14. I just wanted to add that the tutorial is one hour long and in high quality!! And if you can't download the 600 Mb file, you can still download the pdf file wich is simply the text of the video. It's really worth the time I think. See for yourself.
  15. Yes, I just got this album and it's indeed superb! All of the tracks are mixed together, thing that I usually don't like, but it's really well done, as if he wrote each songs knowing how the next one will sound so that you don't even notice it's a new track playing. By the way, DeathPosture's name is mentioned in the "thank-you speech" : Ultimae bought his review ...just kidding of course.
  16. Andi Vax mixing secrets. It's a video tutorial made by Andi Vax from SYNSUN. You'll find a lot of usefull information if you're a beginner like me. He talks about mixing electronic music in general, but it focuses on psytrance I think. In details: 1. Basic skills of equalization 2. Main principles of equalization 3. Frequency’s conflicts and instrument groups 4. Main principles of compression 5. A little bit about mastering 6. A little maximizing hint 7. FAT sound. Three methods of making kick drum. 8. FAT sound. Fat and pumping bass. 9. FAT sound. Synth double track. 10. FAT sound. Unreal wide bass. 11. FAT sound. Percussion and cymbals processing. 12. Virtual Room Hints. Main principles. 13. Virtual Room Hints. 5 reverberation hints. 14. 10 advices from ANDI VAX
  17. Aes Dana new album and of course Astral Projection - Open Society. :posford: Apart from that, I remember seeing on Arabesque's Release Schedule page that a new album by Solar Quest should be released soon. But it was few months ago, and it seems like this album just vanished.
  18. Hello Carl. Older refills should be compatible with Reason 4. Maybe the reason why you see empty directories is that your refill contains samples files and not patches for Reason samplers. Try opening that refill with the "load sample" option instead of the "load patch" option. If you still see nothing, your refill file is probably corrupt, because all of my older refills work well with reason 4. There's a free program called refill viewer that let you extract a file from a refill, but I can't give a link to it because I read once that it's an illegal program. It s shouldn't be too hard to find though To conclude, I'll simply say that Reason 4 rules !!!!
  19. Thank you for listening! Dude! I'm glad you liked it, since a psytrance forum isn't the most appropriate place for this kind of music (but it's only music forum I know). And you have an interesting signature "The awakening of Goa Trance, coming late 2008" Can I ask you why "late 2008"?
  20. I can't see people's avatars, signatures, smileys when not loged in. Is it done on purpose, so that lurkers like me are forced to log in??
  21. Hello everyone. I'd like to share this song with you: I think it can be described as metal but I'm not too sure about that. I hope you like it, as much as I liked writing it. link Next song will be techno/trance in the like of The Delta or Krumleur.
  22. Thanks a lot strydr!! This is the best day I had in a long time. :posford: You're offically second in my fan list. Anyone else interested? P.S. : nice signature, I can't wait to play Assasin's Creed.
  23. I too love the sound of a 303. But unlike most of you, I'm not really interested in having the exact same sound, but rather get something that has the same "acid feeling". And that's very easy to get : any synth with the right settings(cutoff, reasonance, and distortion) can do it I think. But when I want the closest sound to a 303 I simply use ReBirth, and it sounds close enough to me. And if you disagree, you're a crazy fetishist.
  24. How come I never saw that post ? If only i had read this at the time you posted it Believe or not but I haven't been able to finish one single song since this one, due to lack of motivation. Anyway, thank you so much Symphoid! I feel like composing again thanks to you. I just started a new song this week, but as usual I quickly gave up working on it. I will finish it and post it here. It's a psychedelic rock&roll song, I hope I won't disapoint you. You're my first fan after all. Do you mind if I call you my fan? :wank: I'm joking of course. By the way, I see you have an account on acidplanet with lots of songs. I will make sure to listen to your music as soon as I get back home. Hopefully you'll read my reply before the end of next year.
  25. Maybe the problem with today's trance music is that an artist has to be both a producer and a sound engineer. And also has to promote his music himself, and even has to be a good DJ (to play in parties...). That's a lot of work for one normal human being. I may be wrong but I think that few years ago, people were less demanding in terms of sound quality, and artist could put more efforts in the "musicianchip side" of their music.
