Yes, indeed! It makes harsh and dirty frequencies so much smoother and cleaner. I use it all day and it was a game changer! :tu:

to make his type of beats you need renoise and lsd

the problem i have in trying to achieve that sound or sound exactly like someone or “ get that sound “ is trying for a perfection you can’t get , just listen to the music a lot and make stuff choose some tools and go , chasing sounds and tools for me just ends in lost time , be inspired by and make your own shit if it’s good people will come .

I had assumed we'd already established some Warp artists were using bespoke software in the '90s? Ben's video states this fact.

Symbolic Sounds name checks Aphex Twin in its news feed in 1999.

Well, the Kyma language was developed a decade before Supercollider. I'm sure the 20 year old me in 1994 could distinguish between audio processing that existed and audio processing that did not...
eh?

bespoke = tailor made , cylob was one of the first serious supercollider adopters ( to this day ) and probably made some stuff for Aphex to use , but James Mccarthy (supercolldier creator) didn't code anything tailor made .
Yep and cdp existed at the same time as kyma .
The stuff stuff done by RDJ that really ventured into digital signal processing is Come to D, RDJ album and Druguse
,some KYma here and there probably yes.
Point being , your statement that Kyma is heard all over early warp is just pure speculation .

When many of those early "IDM" artists (AFX, Autechre, Squarepusher found commercial success they did indeed buy all types of things including kyma systems. Whether much of this crazy expensive gear ended up on any records is another matter. The moral of any of this "what did they use" speculation and investigation is that people were doing bonkers stuff on very primitive hardware with software that anyone can get. With the tools people have access to now anybody should be able to accomplish anything they imagine.

Also some of the stuff from that video seemed off to me. I was doing very crazy spectral manipulation of files in cool edit (not pro) and granular stuff in the 8th grade which would have been 97 I think. Making loops in hammerhead and then shredding those loops and then putting them back in hammerhead and then taking the results and trying to stitch it into something cool destructively in cool edit by using "paste from file". I found some of those "master tapes during a cleaning recently...... It was mostly terrible. 👍

Haha, thank you for this, you gave me a laugh today.

It's of course ok to be curious what people use to make music, but in case any people reading this thread are in the "it must be the tools" camp, I agree with the sentiment of a couple posts above, which are subtly saying that if you have lots of talent and creativity, you'll find a way to make interesting music with any reasonable soft/hardware.

And although RDJ is my favorite electronic musician of all time, let's admit some of his tracks also veer into "mostly terrible" territory.
