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.
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
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.
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.
"You stick to computers son, I'll stick with music"
I don't need to attriburte the quote. I was actively discouraged from doing what I do by my Family my Friends and the Education system. I was singled out in choir practice (a compulosory class in catholic school) and sent to the back of the class to do my homework because I could not sing ( he could have sent me to the piano).
