  • Hello everyone

    I've been creeping around these parts for a month or two now and figured that I might as well join. I've only recently become interested in ambient tracks and soundscapes. I'm a guitar player of 15 years and a keyboard player of about 10. I've been producing music now for the better part of a decade. I've always been a textbook example of a musician.. Your typical.. Guitar amp, guitar, handful of effects kind.. But after going through some physical life issues and having to dramatically downsize the physical size of my gear.. Eventually leading to using multi effects processors and digital modeling.. I've discovered something new.. Well, something old. Tons of effects.. And I have fallen victim, so to speak.. Because I can't stop listening to ambient soundscapes. Though I still have issues actually creating ambient tracks.. I can get the right sounds.. I just don't quite know how to put them together.. I'm not great at the realm of the abstract, so to speak. I'm hoping to be able to learn a bit about that by reading and listening here. All of this being said.. I've committed myself to making ambient music as it soothes my soul like no other music.. It makes me feel free and allows me to be in my own world and atmosphere.

    Other ambient guitarists, I have tons of questions for you. :x

            Thanks! I'm just starting out with Ambient music.. All I'm really using at this point is a Line 6 POD HD500x for FX and DL4 for Looping.. And I just bought a used Epiphone Joe Pass Hollowbody for the sole purpose of Ambient music.. I do have intentions of adding single pedals to my board.. Everything I have as far as stand alone pedals is not geared towards this kind of music, at all.. And the 500x was the cheapest route, lol. I'm sure I'll end up with a board full of Eventide, Strymon, and Electro Harmonix pedals at some point down the road, haha.

              I'm a VST guy - any external signals coming into my machine get mangled, tripped out, and abused through my pile of soft effects. I did some ambient guitar a few years back, quit for a while, and now I'm saving up for a guitar again!

              Have fun! :cool:
