Me preaching - well, shouting actually - through a pair of Supercell modules in a VCV Rack patch. From much spectral vexation a strange congregation evolves.

No symbols where none intended. Comments welcome, as always.

Best regards,

This is quite an interesting modular exercise. I think the pitch modulations give this piece quite an eerie vibe, although it's pleasant enough to listen to.

I went digging and found your original vocal recording, and that was a great performance.

Good work :)

Thanks, seismic ! Apologies for the long-overdue reply, life is just too weird these days.

The Silencers were a Scottish band that didn't quite get the recognition they deserved.

From Glasgow, or was it Edinburgh?

They recorded their mastepiece album at R.A.K. Studios, owned by Mickie Most. You could see Micky looking down on you as you recorded.

Posh venue. Studio still going today. One of the best in the world.

This is one of my fave songs from The Silencers:

Soon found out what trouble ment.
Now I regret the times I spent.
In your tower blocks and tenements.

This is probably the best song Mickie recorded at RAK -

Yeah, I agree, on both counts. Nicely sung, and surprisingly subtle use of the modules...

Your voice sounds great! I'll have to listen again in headphones for more detail. What kind of microphone did you use.
I frequently run my own voice through my modular and through effects to test them out but I hate the sound of my own voice, so it's very unlikely that I would record myself like this. :lol:

Thanks for sharing!

@vurt and @whyterabbyt :

Hey mates, thanks so much for checking it out ! Vurt, I hoped you wouldn't be too disappointed by my modest use of Supercell. You might have preferred one of my earlier experiments with it, I got some very wild effects but they were a little too wild for what I was aiming at. No fear though, I've got some untamed stuff in the queue. :)

Best regards,

Thanks for listening, I'm glad you enjoyed my modest efforts. :)

The mic is a standard-issue Shure SM58, nothing special there. It's run through an AudioBuddy preamp before going into an M-Audio Delta 66 audio interface. The preamp doesn't add much color to that mic, it seems to work well with my singing.

Best regards from the wasteland (aka NW Ohio USA),

I'm familiar with that setup! When I first started working at M-Audio, I had a Delta 66 with an Audio Buddy. I was really happy with that rig, and my old Oxygen 8. At some point I think I had the OmniStudio breakout and I still have my Flying Cow A>D/D>A. I finished a lot more projects in those days. :lol:

That's really the key. If it suites your voice and the vibe of the track, nothing else really matters.

Upon second listen I like how the delays almost become like a call and response in this.
