More Cheap Audio

I'm supposed to be reviewing Reaktor5 but instead of writing I've just been fucking around.


Combines Memory Drum2, Filter Bank, Spring Tank, Drum 16. I mapped a bunch of parameters to knobs on my Doepfer Pocket Dial, made some patterns, and then just worked it live for 4 minutes.

I did a 'wrong' thing by wiring the filter bank on a send/return pair, and a lot of the effects in this track are what it sounds like running the filter bank and the drum sampler at the same time; all sorts of strange phasing and flanging hits your ears pretty oddly. You can even hear an occasional digital crackle, which is what happens when some controls get changed too quickly.

Oh and none of these things I've been posting are tracks pre-se and if you want to sample them, knock yourself out. There's a bit towards the end that comes in that sounds like a really sick Prince beat.
