Hey Folks,
I am done!

https://soundcloud.com/carl_saved/provision

Enjoy!

The details:
22 Instances of Fathom 2.8 in Live 10
Host Effects:
Reverb
EQ Eight
Utility
Compressor
Limiter
Ping Pong Delay
Auto Filter
Multiband Dynamics


My i5 couldn't handle them at all! The last time I had to freeze tracks before was in OSC #54 :D It was a very different modular synth at that time.
Anyway, it was great fun to make music with this sound cooking lab. Thanks to the dev!
I have to give credits to my sister, she gave me deciding hints on the composition part.
I am looking forward to all your entries. Nice to have you guys around :)

Carl,
That was gorgeous. Highlights for me were composition, strumming and cymbals. Bass line was cool too.

Couldn't agree more. Wish my cymbals were as good (sigh). The nylon guitar sound is also very very good and beautifully played. Good luck.

I've noticed a pattern that there is some amazing sound design on these songs in terms of presets.

I would really love to create a new Fathom Factory Bank with some of these presets.

Obviously we should do this after the contest, but if people would be willing to send me the presets they are willing to share, I will include them in a new Factory bank, and its a chance for many of you to get even more name recognition across the entire Fathom user base with your preset design.

I'm just making this request now before the end of the contest while you are all reading the thread.

Good idea, and thanks for offering/asking! Do remember though (certainly in the case of my presets) they can be designed to fit into a particular mix to do a specific job. In the OSC sound design is very important, but, this also goes hand in hand with the composition and mixing requirements. So, a raw preset may not sound fantastically great in isolation, but can sound awesome in context!

This is not to say that some folk here are simply amazing at sound design, wavetable production etc, and their presets would without doubt be an invaluable addtion to the Fathom family of presets.

I'd be okay to share presets after the deadline for fairness' sake.
doctorbob wrote:nylon guitar

Wow, you've got a fine ear, spot on :tu: That's what it was modeled after (although I gave up on hoping it would actually sound like one, kind of was content with it).
Btw the only wavetable that I used was for the strumming guitar, because I needed different wave cycles for different guitar strings. The rest is done using the other oscillators of Fathom.

I would be glad to share the ones that actually sound like a preset. Like Dr Bob said, most of them are so track specific and eq'd to sit in the mix. By themselves not very inspiring. I think maybe my lead sound would hold up. I would love to see Carl's strumming gtr with midi file.

Here is my submission.

https://soundcloud.com/scrubbing-monkey ... ge-osc-109

Most everything was from scratch. I did use some of my own presets and modified them to suit. I also use Vintage Bass from Solidtracks on the end of the song. I put it there as a place holder but it ended up fitting just fine so I left it.

Also a warm thanks to:

Carl Saved, TheNeverScene and Frostline for their gong presets. I morphed all three togerther and it worked perfectly.

and to Schiing for the Timpani. I used it as it was.

It was a true joy working with this synth. It's GUI and workflow suit me very well. The sounds that come out of this thing are truly amazing. Having followed the development for awhile I am certain there are more good things to come from Fathom.

This was also my first project in Mulab. I found creation FAR easier than DAWs I have been using. Very intuitive and very fast. I stumbled a bit in the mixing phase but that was due to my own ignorance of what is going on in Mulab. ( tracks and racks are not the same thing ).

I have had a blast with both Fathom and Mulab and will continue to use them in the future.

As always I am simply honoured to have a track amongst folks I admire so much.

Track details.

29 instances of Fathom

a mix of ReaEQ, Reacomp, Airwindows Cstrip on the channels.

Rough Rider comp on the drums and percussion

Airwindows Everytrim for mid side treatment

Muverb and Oril River for reverbs ( most tracks used Fathom's own reverb ) (IMHO its better, but I needed it outside of Fathom)

TDR Kotelnikov and Limiter no 6 on the master.


Good luck to everyone.

Here is my entry in its current state. Still muddy and I am not 100% happy with some of the patches.
https://soundcloud.com/bryemye/bryemye-beat-me-up

DAW: Reaper
15 instances of Fathom
Effects: ReaComp, ReaEQ, ReaFir

The ADSR Envelope drives me crazy on this thing because I cannot zoom in for very fine adjustments (should probably just learn how the regular envelope works), but other than that, fun synth. First time actually wavetables. All patches from Init but I did use wavetables and used a couple of patches as inspiration that I recreated from the Factory.

Have updated my track again (sorry!), but the crashes are better now and just for you Peter I have extended the bass range down towards the sub - can't prove it as I don't have a subwoofer! But, around 4-5 mins that section has some pretty hard hitting bass - enjoy.

Slightly epic for you too Peter :wink:

I'll post again as previous posts seem to get lost in the mists of peoples' memory (sorry if I offend!).

I know it's long, but please bear with it as the journey should make sense (well, I think so)

Slightly cool, DoctorBob ;-)
Updated my track as well...it has learnt to say "cybernetic" (in german). That word is actually a combination of 4 wavetables, i.e. 4 fathoms played in sequence because the sample is just to long to fit into 16 slots...The Sample was created with balabolka, I have imported it into Tone2 Icarus with "Vocoder" resampling mode, exported the vocoded version again. Loaded it with Waveosaur and split it into 4 parts all n*2048 samples long (n<=16). Then I took those 4 parts and converted them to Fathom wavetables with the python tool that can be found elsewhere...Okay...that was fun...the two glasses of bad red whine where hard work compared to that.

Great submissions so far. I can tell we're all going to be tweaking and updating till the very end hehe. Now if I could just find that pitch bend range...

Too true - I just keep learning more things about Fathom ... I am now on the refining bit rather than tweaking hehe :wink: :hihi: :D
