Argh ambient music and delays

I was trying to finish up the Rebirth project that was 55 minutes of birth-giving music to my cousin, and noticed when doing a critical listening in the car, that ‘wow, a lot of delays everywhere…’

I suspect this is the curse of producing ambient music with huge sound walls, it’s so tempting to crank up the delay settings to achieve a spacious sound, but at some point too much sugar is just too much. I must say one of my favourite ambient records is Steve Roach’s Magnifient Void, but that album is really pushing the limits of ambient reverb and delays.

Oh well, back to the mixing stage, take down the levels, remix, do critical listenings, and release something….
