I don’t really know how to describe this. I made this a few years ago (2007 maybe) as a score writing (MIDIstration) exercise with a bit of PD sound design. The drums came out alright, I believe I used the free version of Natural Studio’s ns-kit
We all need to inject some crass immaturity into our lives every now and again.
Personally it keeps me from getting depressed about pollution, politics, etc.
Someone I know made this four bar loop on a little drum sampler. I heard it… I laughed… I told him to make a song out of it. He refused. I asked him bounce it out as a mono loop and send it to me. I re-edited it and this is what came out. No layering, effects, etc. Just a straight up loop chopped and loaded on the drum pads and messed about with.
I found a Hammond VS-300 on the curb a while back. Figured I’d bring it home and see if it works. Low and behold it did, except for a few scratchy switches. This is a recording of what it sounds like when it’s not doing anything. Volumes cranked up and I’m probing around the driver with a microphone.
Thank you for the kind words and the reblog. It's awesome to run into a fellow PD user. I'm not that great with GEM yet and I'm near useless with audio, but I'm getting better haha. I look foward to see more of your work :D
No problem… your glitch pieces kick ass! Keep’em coming
More PD stuff. This one is a Buddhist singing bowl chewed up in a granular synth I made in pd. I tuned each grain to a note in a chord. Originally the patch was 5 channel so each grain was spat out in surround but I mixed it down to stereo to post up on the web. There is a higher rez version on my soundcloud for dl.
So this is a sudo bell using the additive synthesis technique in Pure Data. I used a bank of sine tones to emulate the partials in a bells spectrum. Each partial glides up or down in pitch making the bell kind of wobble as it decays.
