Ambient Sounds FAQ

Q: What is Ambient sound?

A: The term 'Ambient' when applied in a musical context was coined by British musician Brian Eno, who used it to describe music designed to present a particular atmosphere rather than traditional melodies, rhythms and song structures. This typically involves slow-moving, sparse arrangements of a small palette of sounds, and importantly emphasises the texture and tone of a sound over the actual notes being played.

Ambient sounds are audio files or synthesizer presets which contain or produce sounds of this nature, such as long, sustained synth drones, delicate noise textures and location field recordings.

Q: What types of Ambient sounds are there?

A: There are a number of different ways to classify Ambient sounds but at ModeAudio, we use a small group of broad definitions: basses and subs, which emphasise low-end notes and rumbling textures; ambiences and synth layers, which focus on held chords and textural layers; textures and noise layers, which emphasise the tone and grain of predominantly atonal or non-pitched sounds; and sound effects and transitions, which focus on the building and release of musical tension.

Q: How can I use Ambient sounds in my music?

A: At ModeAudio, we offer 3 different kinds of collections of Ambient sounds: Ambient music loops, Ambient samples and Ambient synth presets

Ambient music loops are sounds edited to a specific number of bars and at a specific tempo, which can be looped within your DAW.

Ambient samples are usually long files of between 20 and 60 seconds, containing the gradual attack, sustain and long decay of an Ambient sound.

Ambient synth presets are files designed for use within a specific piece of audio software such as Serum, which when loaded up will produce Ambient sounds such as drones or textures. These sounds can be produced using your DAW's piano roll or MIDI keyboard, meaning you are free to choose the pitch and length of the notes.
