I had been having problems with the ending of a track I had been working on for a couple of weeks, so I decided to leave it alone for a while and have a play with some Reaktor presets. This happened very quickly.

Cinematic/Synthetic/Not quite Ambient

mp3/192kbps/5:52/8.05MB

or, truly in the clouds:-

https://soundcloud.com/whatsisname/sagarmatha

Recorded/Mixed in EnergyXT2.7
Mastered in T-Racks CS

components and contraptions:-

Reaktor
B2
Satin
T-Racks Linear Phase EQ
T-Racks Vintage Equalizer

DR - 11

The other track is still unfinished

Pass the oxygen

Interesting, beautiful, erie and frightening. Yes, it feels cinematic and is pretty minimal.

One way of ending it would be to repeat the first part but in reverse so it recedes back to silence.

The chords swell and swirl in a soothing way. Perhaps with some help from B2?

The piece is quite minimal but the excellent sound design and mix make for engaging late night listening. Good stuff. :tu:

Lovely peaceful track Tim. And those pads are so beautiful! The second section is very dramatic in a chilled way ;)
This is great for a wind-down from a busy day after dinner.
Well done!

Thanks very much for the great comments, Phil. Glad you liked it :)

My comment about the problem I had ending a track referred to another piece that I was working on. I have decided to revisit that in a couple of weeks with fresh ears, and possibly, fresh ideas.

Undoubtedly B2 is contributing to the atmosphere on here, particularly when the alternating semitones are smeared into each other to produce the wind-line effect between 1:30 and 2:30

I didn't do much in the way of sound design, other than identify a couple of Reaktor ensemble presets which sounded good together.

Thanks very much for taking the time to listen and comment, Frantz. Glad you liked it :)
