A few notes here, about my nascent interest in understanding the proper signal chain for doing the sort of ambient soundscapes that Chords of Orion has introduced to me. For anyone who either happens across this post or who got sent here by me (upon threat of being made to work in the squirrels’ nut mines): I would welcome constructive or enlightening comments to advance my understanding of what is a new area, but one of great interest, to me as a player.
Okay, so based on the ideas I picked up from the first few clips of the Ambient Guitar series at Chords of Orion, I went and tried to see if I could, using the very limited amount of gear I have, create a signal chain that would let me approach the same landscape.
In short: it works!
Bookmarking here what looks to be a major-caliber resource, at least for someone as new to electronics as I am, for approaching the live-looping-delaying universe first called “Frippertronics” and later “Soundscapes”.
I’ve made it up to about #10 in the series thus far, and will be reviewing more soon enough. This fella seems pretty well thought out, and the landscape this suggests is starting to poke at my hindbrain a little more insistently.
