Iris Subscription Set No. 22 - uploaded on January 29 2013 - 10 patches - 142 MB unzipped
Band Outtake 01 - MW - 2 Macros
A processed outtake of a recording with my former Band ROYCE which didn't make it onto the album which I published myself in 2006. An 8-Bar loop - original BPM 124.something, root note C3.
S1 only plays the low frequency range, bring in S2 with the Modwheel for full bandwidth. S3 plays a short loop from the middle of the sample, bring it on with Macro 3. Add Reverb to S2+3 with Macro 1.
Bird Encounter - MW - 2 Macros
Processed field recording of a bird recorded some summers ago. Different spectral selections and segments of the same sample play in S1+2. S1 runs in Non-Retrigger mode.
Add fast random Pitchmod to S1 with the Modwheel, Macros 1+2 for Delay Mix/Time. Try all ranges please.
Container Music - MW - 7 Macros
A snippet of the recording of the discharging of containers in a russian harbour (Kaliningrad) recorded in 2011 for a film project. S1 running in Non-Retrigger mode plays a narrow selection of high metal squeaks, S2 plays a longer segment with rumbling and impacts. Add vibrato to S1 with the Modwheel, 7 Macros are assigned, please check the Macro page.
Dreamland - MW - 3 Macros
Synth texture mixed with flute noises, a very dreamy and mysterious patch. Different spectral selections of the same sample in S1+2. Add fast Pitchmod with the Modwheel, Macros 1+2 for Delay/Reverb Mix, M3 control LP Filter Cutoff.
Elves Choir - MW - 3 Macros
A female vocalist I recorded for a theatre project a while ago, she had a very strong vibrato (unusable for my purposes but I still paid her), with the narrow spectral selection on S1 it sort of emulates a Theremin
S1 runs in Radius RT mode so the vibrato speed will stay the same on each key played. S2 (Non-Retrigger mode) plays a broader selection of the same sample in the high frquency range, bring it in with the Modwheel. S3 (Non-Retrigger mode) plays the sample back and forth in the very high frequency range, bring it in with Macro 3. Macro 1 for Delay Mix, M2 controls Highpass Cutoff. There is a bit of glide active in this patch for better legato smearing.
Joyful Harmonics - MW - 3 Macros
The sample from the patch Singing Sikh (see below) resynthed and then manipulated in Metasynth. Different spectral selections of the same sample play in S1+2, both running in Non-Retrigger mode. Inverted Modwheel for LP Filter Cutoff/Reso. Macro 1 brings in temposynced square-shaped Pitchmod for S1, M 3+4 for Delay/Reverb Mix. In the low ranges this patch is also great for deep meditative drones. Both samples play in Non-Retrigger mode.
One Finger Wall - MW - 4 Macros
A sample made by layering different synths forming a big and beautiful chord. Different spectral selections of the same sample play in S1-3. The volume of S3 with the broadest selection is assigned to the Modwheel, Macro 1 for Delay Mix, M3 for LP Cutoff, M4 for temposynced Filtermod, M5 for temposynced Pitchmod of S3.
Singing Sikh - MW - 2 Macros
Shortly after 9/11 there was a ceremony for the victims in a New York stadium which was broadcasted on TV. I recorded hours of it from the TV and included those samples in my George Bush Rap "Da Speech".
I dug up these samples recently and started denoising and tweaking them. So here is a singing Sikh with a beautiful and touching chant, S1+2 play different spectral selections, both in Non-Retrigger mode, so if you play overlapping legato you will hear the whole long chant while changing pitches. Bring in S2 with the Modwheel for full frequency range. Macros 1+2 for Pitchmod/Modspeed, Glide is also activated.
Spectral Blackout - MW - 4 Macros
A sample made with one of my Reaktor ensembles, very narrow spectral selections of the same sample play in S1-3, S3 running in Non-Retrigger mode.
The Modwheel adds Distortion and Chorus, Macros 1+2 for Pitchmod/Modspeed, M3 for Delay Mix, M4 for Delay Time.
Tribal Loop - MW - 4 Macros
A tribal loop with some electronics made with processed Framedrum samples from my soundset Framedrum for Alchemy, original BPM 90, root note C3. Add distortion with the Modwheel, Macros 1+2 for Pitchmod/Modspeed to destroy the timing, M3 controls LP Filter Cuoff, M4 increases the release time.
