So I've been playing around with loopers lately, having lots of fun looping a small part of a pad, played back really really slowly, with delay, so you can get this beautiful atmosphere going.
Then i shoved a drum loop in one day and slowed it down.
"Holy crap... this doesn't sound the way it used to..."
For a second, i was reminded of merzbow by the granulated sounds i could hear. And of course the next obvious step was some overdrive.
And then a accompanying pad to go along.
Talking on irc while doing so, a friend asked me to show him the sounds, which i then went through and recorded.
While adding parts to the patch as i went.(theres a crazy delay that pops up in the middle, which i had to then work some controls out for)
For some reason the pad cuts out early, and i realise now why, because i hadnt connected its delay up to the [writesf].
So my nice fading pad is gone and now just a quick cutout of the drums with some silence at the end.
Anyway, for your enjoyment/tourture i present.
Myspace, i know, but it should be the first track up there.
(as i said, i recorded it on the fly, whilst writing the patch itself, which is probably not the best technique. i may re-record it or do some post production on this track at a later date)
