        can't wait to hear your mangled water... :daydream:

        Just a question: can The Mangle do microtonal scales?

          I honestly have no idea! :eek: If I can find some documentation, I'll let you know - I believe currently it doesn't but don't take my word for it...

                  Ok, after a LOT of coffee, some beef quesadilla, and some hating on the snow, I present "Insect Mine":

                  https://soundcloud.com/synthetic_aurality/insect-mine


                  Here's how it was done!

                  Track 1 - original sample, reversed and time-stretched +10%, then assaulted with PSP Mixpressor, into MMultibandHarmonizer, then into MMultibandGranular
                  Track 2 - The Mangle loaded with a 4 second snippet of the original sample, fiddled about with settings until I got a nice rhythm, then into Kjaerhus Classic Compressor, then into MMultibandAutopan
                  Track 3 - original sample pitch-shifted down an octave and time-stretched +10%, fed into Zebrify, then into ValhallaFreqEcho
                  Master bus: PSP Mixpressor, into ValhallaVintageVerb, into ValhallaUberMod, into Tone2 Akustix

                  Fade in and out done in Sound Forge Audio Studio.

                    Please excuse the title... :biggrin:

                    So, there's a "jam" on the sample in ambient v.3, triple tracked, laid out of phase and pitch-altered. Add the sample track in its entirety, fed through delay about 6 times (sorry, didn't keep notes). Then, sections of this were cut out, subjected to further tempo changes and excessive delay. A long drone beneath the second half was made from a short sample, while the drippy bits were also maltreated until they became the water-jet sections at the end. Sliding delay produced the metallic ending.

                      Tuonela, that reminds me of my process slihtly. I cut the song into three pieces, then fucked each piece up as much as i Could until i was satisfied with it, then I put them all together to make my song. Tons of reverb, tempo changes, delays, echoes, gate EQ, pitch changes n shit. I think i have a part in there with some left and right stereo panning. idk. I started writing the process down, but halfway through I got lost in the middle of making the song and stopped writing. sorry :(

                        Yeah, I know that one. I often look back at the tracks and wonder where some of them came from. It doesn't help that often they are the results of accidents. :canthearyou: Sorry, experiments.

                          here is my entry for the OSD 26:

                          https://soundcloud.com/ahornberg/liquid-oldfields


                          About the music you hear:

                          Inspired by the music of mike & sally oldfield, I tried to be not so close to the original melodies so that they can stand for their own but will be recognized as "Ah, that's Mirrors!"

                          I don't wanted to make a cover-version, I wanted to catch the different moods and blend them together to create something new :daydream:

                          How it was made:

                          I used Renoise, Audacity and Kontakt to find and cut out interesting parts of the given sample.

                          One cut was time-stretched using the Paulstretch-plugin of Audacity by stretching-factor 10 or 30 times (I can't remember) and was used from the beginning to the end. All melodic parts are inspired by and fitted to this track. this track is mid-side-processed. It's so easy in Bitwig to do mid-side-processing :thumbsup: I put down the mid-channel by 24 dB, so if you listen in mono, the drone cancels out completely.

                          Then I loaded the other cuts into Kontakt (which is the only sampler I know that can handle microtonal scales in the way I need it)
                          with a scale applied called 33ed4 (that means 33 equal steps in 2 octaves). for more about the tuning, see http://xenharmonic.wikispaces.com/33ed4

                          The Kontakt instruments are all built up as one-shoot-samples (no loops). The second melody was played using a 4-pole-lowpass filter (Bitwig) with strong resonance and by moving the cutoff-frequency. So it was tuned by ear.

                          The arrangement was done in Bitwig. I boosted the low frequencies on the master-track.
                          The only additional VST-effect was Acon Verberate (mostly on the master-track).

                          I hope you enjoy it!

                              Used to be a big Sally Oldfield fan - There was a time (long, long ago) when I would play 'Water Bearer' several times a week. Now I'm going to have to find it and give it a spin...
