I tried some oldschool Electro a la Drexciya "You Don't Know". That tone control can do some serious damage on higer settings in later modes. Especially paired with a long decay rate. Awesome.
Coincidentally, I've been really into Drexciya lately, and first thing I did with Bong was compose a bunch of electro tunes
Hehe nice. Need to hear them
. Because you said "lately" do you know any other Detroit electro stuff? If not check out Dopplereffekt, Le Car, Ectomorph and AUX88. There is some nice Underground Resistance Electro stuff out there too eg the "Electronic Warfare" 2xLP.
Btw I visited the website of a well known brand today and took a look at their "presentation". Inspired by that I tried the following on my own:
- 1 STOOONER (ADZE is tooooo big for this) with a DRY x0x KICK sample
- 1 BONG (default MODE 1)
- 1 instance of TT Rangemeter on both
- 1 instance of betabugs oscillosmegascope on both (now you can see both waveforms "synced" in one window)
Now I panned Stoooner hard left and BONG hard right. Then I triggered both at the same time.
Apparently something went wrong because I did not hear any differences at first...I checked everything more than twice. But I was not sure if I listened to the sample or the bong sound only...
Finally I realized everything was fine. Left = sample, right=Bong...dang, that algorithm sounds so close that it took me a few minutes to realize that. Just some minor tonal variations but more than 100% of it's charactereristics (aka "better than the original"
Good job Rurik...probably I had some luck in using the correct sample which matched your default settings pretty closely (99,99999% indentical minus the variable thingy).
