It sounds like it's a lot of fun to play through this setup. Makes me want to wire up a delay + reverb circuit of my own. Thanks for sharing!

I found this quite mesmerizing. Very nice to hear some real-world plucked strings in this style of music.

The sound is so rich and full that there's not a big need of many other instruments to turn the improv into a piece. And while being so full it nevertheless leaves spaces to weave in other sounds.

Cheers.

Reminds me of Robin Guthrie's ambient work, very very good! Are you willing to share info about your setup?

I hadn't heard of Robin Guthrie before -- I'll have to check that name out. Thanks!

Certainly.

I'm using a Line 6 Pod HD500x directly into Ardour (on Ubuntu 18.04).

Funny you should ask about the setup -- I wrote some thoughts down on my first attempts at making a delay-heavy patch a few months ago: https://github.com/joedougherty/writing ... _delays.md

This is really just one possible implementation of some "delay stacking" ideas that Chords of Orion discusses here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBsRmJ4QHwM

I chose four delays and 1 reverb. I more or less went with the default settings of each type. My main interest was in creating a nice set of timings.

My base time is a third of a second (333ms). I have 1.5 delays (a tape echo and one channel of a stereo delay) at 2/3 of a second (666ms). I also have a los res delay at close to 2 seconds (1998ms). This sort of timing setup lends itself nicely to a waltz feel.

Then, just to round things out, I put some 'verb on the master bus in Ardour (courtesy of the fine Dragonfly Reverb plugin) -- Large Charmber.
