  • Producing evolving drones/soundscapes with SoundMorph's WaveWarper

    I would like to shortly describe generative method for producing evolving drones, soundscapes, textures
    using SoundMorph's Wave Warper (commercial, $69)

    To start working with Wave Warper please read its manual.

    The method is as follows:

    * To provide sound with dynamics use glitch effects like Effectrix/Glitch/Glitch2 on Group A, B and C VST channel.
    This could be also some granularizing VST effect - but also many other possible effects - make experiments!
    I got interesting results using SPC Gater-Pro.

    * To transform resulting sound to more liquid form you can use some granular VST effect on "Prewarper Bus" channel.
    Also chorus effects and convolution reverbs produce interesting results. But this is not mandatory, "Prewarper Bus" can be unassigned.

    * To create final continuous evolving form on "Warper" VST channel use some sound-smearing VST effect, like
    GRM Evolution, ValhallaShimmer, BigRev, GigaVerb, Glimmerverb or boscomac's FloodVerb ensemble.

    * Nice, spacious reverb on master channel

    Tip: to use more VST effects than available channel slots or to use them in different than simple serial routing,
    I've used BlueCat's PatchWork.

    Have fun!

    P. S. Is anybody interested in demo track for this method?

    MetaDronos, interesting software and method, I must try it once (but Wave Warper is rather expensive for me).

    I'm interested what do you think about quality of Glimmerverb (in comparison to ValhallaShimmer maybe)?

      Sound processed by GlimmerVerb is more dense, solid and less airy. ValhallaShimmer is more parametrizable - but quality achieved is more dependent
      on "operator's" skills.

        Thanks for the interesting post MetaDronos! We actually discovered this as an interesting alternative use of Wave Warper as well. We'd love to hear some examples of what you created. Cheers! -SoundMorph (you can write to us at [email protected])
