  • Friendly greetings from a Sound Designer in New Zealand

    Hi all,
    A friend of mine in Germany introduced me to the site and I thought it might be of interest to members for me to respectfully mention what I do. I hope a little self-promotion as a first post isn't too distasteful.
    I'm a professional Sound Designer, both for my own preset and sample packs and as a consultant to a range of manufacturers.
    I like imperfection in sound and generally favour a dark, melancholic sound with a sprinkling of dust, imperfection, warmth (sometimes icy cold and digital is good though) and intricate depth which are used by quite a few composers who favour that sound. I feel like they may be of interest to people here as raw material and inspiration for use in their music. This release for example by Glenn Sogge/rKaic Moderne was made using only 30 unmodified presets from my recent sample-based dark cinematic preset pack for Native Instruments Absynth = https://rkaicmoderne.bandcamp.com/album/30

    Please do feel free to check out what I make at my store, demos and details are all linked from there if anything is of interest. As I say, I hope this is ok as a first post, self-promotion is always a bit of a tough balance but I also hope to become an active part of the forum in terms of discussing synth programming, sound design and also ambient composition.
    All the best from New Zealand.
    Greg.

    Hiya Greg

    Welcome to the ambient online forum

    I follow you over at Twitter but, as you may have guessed already, I ain't that good at twittering haha! So it is good to see you here as I am much more active here than at Twitter and much prefer to interact with peeps in a forum environment.

    It is also good to have another sound designer/preset creator here, too. Although I haven't pulled the trigger on any of your sound sets just yet I can heartily recommend your stuff to others here, having spent some time browsing, in particular, your Absynth and Thorn collection. I guess my reticence comes from being a part time sound designer myself along with having a bit of a Eurorack setup, so I have generally given "third party" sound sets a miss.

    Listening to Glenn's -30- album has now got me thinking, "I really must get this Absynth set," as it will give me further inspiration to utilise Absynth, which was my first ever soft synth, purchased at V3, quite a few years ago now.

    Cheers for now

            Thank you all!
            Hey Andy, good to see you here, too! I totally understand your point regarding 3rd party presets, I don't really buy them myself but at times I do see work by people with different skillsets to me or just different ideas or areas of interest and I pick up the odd quirky sample pack here and there to use in music. I'm glad you like Glenn's work, he's a talented composer and I was really excited to see what he'd done with my sounds. For another angle here's a piece written by a German composer/sound designer friend of mine - using all my Absynth sounds but with a few bits of added orchestral instrumentation: https://soundcloud.com/jorgalad/jorg...mo-emptyvessel

            Anyway, good to see you here and good to be here, hoping I can start offering some sound design tips and picking some up myself and also really hoping to get some inspiration to compose some music again, other than preset demos I never seem to find the time or energy after spending all day on sound design for the business.
            Take care and thanks for the welcomes!

                    btw I'm not seeing how to add a signature for my posts, can anyone point me in the right direction so I can shamelessly plug my presets in my posts? ;)

                      Hiya Greg

                      Although the place for editing our signature isn't hidden, it ain't exactly obvious either.

                      Top left of the home page you will see your name and icon, with a drop down menu.

                      Select "User Settings"

                      The User Settings section has five tabs. Select the second tag, "Account"

                      There are now around a dozen sub sections.

                      Eighth one down is "Conversation Detail Options"

                      Within this sub section you will find link for "Edit Post Signature"

                      Click on that and it should bring up a pop-up and you can add/edit your signature there.


                      cheers

                        ah, at least I don't feel too bad for not spotting it, I thought I'd been through every settings tab! Thanks Andy!
