Sound Design: Samplers, Sample Robot and Audacity

Audacity.

First off. After both Left and I decided to focus on some sound design, within a few hours we had both adopted Audacity as our main tool for organising sounds into projects. It is also ideal for breaking a large file like a eurorack meander into smaller files to be used for hits, loops and pads. Free and open source with a bucketload of plugins it allowed us get creative from the get go. Later I added a few of my favourite vsts for pre-amp and overdrive.

Glitch Plugins

dblue Glitch

DBlue Glitch GUI

Probably the first usable glitch plugin. In KVR this used the be called the fuck shit up section.

You can use it with one shots or loops that get bufferred into steps obviously working jst as well on vocals and melody loops leads and abstract sounds

Bitcrushers

If there is a theme for this blog it's the movement of my music from a typical chaotic set of files and folders, to a highly structured hardware and software music system to a Live studio. The live studio mostly asks the question how do I deal with latency cpu load, rendering (freezing) versus live control, performance versus pre-processing.

Finished

With the WMD Giger Counter and Dopfer Bitcrusher added to the Hybrid, things are starting to take shape.
I have the SALT + connected for midi in and out. While the SALT looks after gate sequencing.
