Sound-A-Day 22.03.2011

Well, once again a bit of catching up to do!

Has been a full on last few days. Not only have I been slaving away on finishing several tracks for things, but also getting prepared for a gig at the start of next month. I've also spent a lot of time trying to find myself a new job. Funds are running low and it's getting pretty desperate! A couple possibilities though, so fingers crossed.

A few sounds to upload though, here's the first.

Was just noodling about with the 101, running it into my laptop and processing it pretty heavily. Not really any particular aim, just having fun! I'd just finished the first steps for a patch idea I had. The concept was a constantly updating buffer which takes the input signal, scrubs forwards and backwards at different speeds, and then refreshes itself and starts again. I thought it could be quite a fun way of  creating some sort of interactive sound art thing.

Anyways, I'd combined that with a delay and reverb effect which are being faded in and out to create swells of sound. Then I mapped a bunch of parameters to a midi controller, and ran some heavily modulated SH101 lines through it.

As I said, just doodling really, but luckily enough Id remembered to hit record, and this is one of the sounds that came out:

I wish I had recorded the dry signal too in order to offer up some comparison. At the moment its quite difficult to tell exactly what is coming from the scrubbing and what is the effects.

This is something I hope to finish up into a download though, so you can try it out for yourselves. Its not so much musical as sound scape I suppose. Good for intros and breakdowns though!
