[Ambient Guitar] - Syllix - Circles

Hey guys,

So I wanted to make something a little different than usual, so I dusted off my guitars and made this track. I'm not the best guitar player in the world but hopefully you still like it!

Any tips or feedback (especially on the electric or acoustic guitars) would be much appreciated. Help me improve!

Thanks for listening

Thanks demephitize. I think the acoustic guitars turned out well but wasn't too sure about the electric guitars (I don't work with guitars much at all really, as I'm more of an electronic producer).

Re: [Ambient Guitar] - Syllix - Circles

the acoustic guitars sound really good. and the electric don't sound bad at all. they certainly work in the context of this track. maybe they are lacking some high-mids and high end and sound a bit box-y. how did you record them? if you go directly through your sound interface and then just use modelers (guitar rig, amplitube, whatever), then the only thing i can suggest (if you are not aware of this already), is not to use built-in cabs, but instead use impulse responses. It will really liven up the sound.

Re: [Ambient Guitar] - Syllix - Circles

Please tell me how you made the pads at 3:13.

Everything flowed so nicely. Stopping the guitars at the end and kind of just letting the track rest was a really nice decision. It was like at first I got relaxed from the acoustic then uplifted from the electric and lost in the outro.

The part at the end made me think another song was coming up and would flow nicely or something, like a future garage type song. But oh well, maybe next time.

I know nothing about recording guitars though.

thanks for the tips I really appreciate it! I'll certainly check out some impulse responses. It's odd you say the electrics could use more mid-high and sound boxy because I felt there was no low end at all... anyway, you're spot on about how I recorded them - electric guitar plugged directly into my interface and using amp models in Logic Pro (I used modelled amps from Waves actually).

Thanks man, and I'm really glad you liked it. Yeah the ending might end up being the intro for another song... we'l see.

As for the pads around 3:13, it's a bunch of layered sounds that included a low bass pad, about 5 different tracks of stretched guitar with lots of reverb (you can use plugins like Paul's Stretch or Spectral Dronemaker). I think I also pitched those tracks up and down octaves to get even more variation in the sound). And there's also some orchestral strings that come in as well. Hope that helps

This pads are great and the final part of the song sounds perfect!
Also the guitar solo is very emotive, relaxing and the guitars have good details (min. 1:16).

I like a lot this tracks that transforms gradually

Great work!

Re: [Ambient Guitar] - Syllix - Circles

epic like qualities... Thanks for inviting us to critique the performance, I like it but more then that it works. the ambient back ground is great when it becomes the foreground.. keep making songs like this your method of creation seems to be coming together...

Re: [Ambient Guitar] - Syllix - Circles

Wow, thanks so much for the kind words. To be honest I didn't really think this was one of my better songs but many seem to really like it. Your words truly mean a lot to me and serve as motivation for me to keep making music. Cheers!

Re: [Ambient Guitar] - Syllix - Circles

Very nice! I love hearing real instruments in electronic music. The acoustics and electrics sounded great! When done well it really sets a track apart from the rest, and you did it well. I think I'm going to have to dust off my guitars now.
