You are a genius and a magician. I cannot believe that you got all that from that 6 second drum loop. I don't see how it's even possible.

But damn, that was impressive.

magicians never reveal their tricks (except the ones that do) but i always enjoyed penn and teller, so ...
granular sampling and fx, hit the loop to play, turn knobs on modules, grin like cheshire cat.
that's my main method :hihi:

the true genius is in the module makers, mutable instruments, make noise, qbit and bastl 8)

thanks for listening :ud:

I do have mutable instruments modules for Softube Modular and I know what they are capable of so that explains a lot.

I don't do a lot of experimental stuff these days but I'm glad I have the tools available in case I get into that area again.

Oh, about to make an announcement on my thread.

Morpagene is a supreme sample f**ker-upper. Sounds great into Clouds. Thanks for sharing!
I hate to advertise on someone elses thread but... have you checked out my Morphagene reals on Freesound? They are free! :hihi:

I really liked the low rumbly bits in this. There are some really great transitions.

Nice stuff! :tu: I particularly liked the bit that sounded like an LFO routed to flanged pink noise. 8)
Sad about tomorrow
Sorry, but it's not my fault

you should check out some of the clouds videos, divkid does a good explanation of it :tu:
its far more than just an experimental noise machine, as good as it is for that. used more subtly it can be good for delay, harmonising and as a basic reverb. so much going on, ill never tire of it :love:

not a great advert if you forget a link :P
tbh, ive not got round to building "reels" yet, just using it to record live so far.
using the bastl grandpa for edited samples.
will get round to it as obviously it offers more control over the sliced regions, im not great at catching the loop points for splicing live :lol:

The trick to creating splices from the hardware, is to use a really small gene size, then scrub through the sample, using Slide, until you find the spot where you want the Splice.
...Or you can edit the sample in Reaper. Markers added to a sample (CMD+M) will be interpreted as Splices.

You know what man? I love the stuff you do so much, I'm going to put on my project to-do list "VURT - Virtual Universal Resynthesis Transmutation"

It's going to be a totally experimental album where I will try to sound like you and at the same time try to be somewhat catchy by throwing in short melodic motifs here and there.

I have no idea when I'm going to get around to it (to-do list is 10 projects long already) but I will eventually.

Stay tuned.

cheers!
helpful stuff too 8)
is it only reaper or can i use something else? ie will samplitudes markers do the same? or are reapers special? :lol:
