  • One Sample Dare #28

    Here it is:

    This is particularly significant at this time - ANZAC Day is, for people in Australia and New Zealand, the equivalent of Memorial Day in the US. The Last Post is, of course, regarded as sacred music in the military cultures of Western Nations.

    I was a bit tentative about choosing this track, which I recorded at last year's Dawn Service. If you find this a poor choice, offensive or insensitive, please let me know and I will, depending on the depth of response, find a replacement sample,

    amazing! is that played on some kind of bugle-horn? it doesn't sound like a trumpet or like a french-horn. maybe something in between?

      I think it's a fine choice, fitting as it's the 100th anniversary this year.

      Any questions of sensitivity are down to the individual interpretations.

        It was played on a traditional army bugle, same as the one in the track image. I believe they are extremely difficult to play and a lot of skill is required to play this well. The faint zipping sounds are from the wind in the banners overhead.

          I wanted to keep the main melody intact although slowed right down courtesy of Paulstretch.
          I made three copies and used Audacity to isolate three samples: the bugle and the hiss at the beginning.
          The first copy I used phaser and reverb.
          The second copy I used the multiband EQ to change the tone and also reverb.
          The third copy I Paulstretched and whacked a heap of reverb and flange and a pulsator (making it switch from left to right channels).
          The hiss sample I put through a rotary speaker and a reverberator to make it sound (badly) like distant drums (or thunder or whatever).
          The bugle samples I simply added a little reverb.

            Hello.
            Here's my submission called Elegy for a Freedom Fighter.
            First the process:
            track1: I took the original sample and pitch shifted it down by 34 half steps , cut some low frequencies and ran it throu smart-electroniques ambience, then stretched this by a factor of 3.
            track 2: took the original sample, paste mixed it at two different intervals in the left and right channels to create a stereo delay, pitch shifted it down by 34 half steps , cut some low frequencies and ran it throu smart-electroniques ambience, stretched this by a factor of 10 then cut out the first 28 minutes and 30 seconds of the whole file to create an extra layer to use as needed later on in the mix.
            track 3: took the original sample from time index 00:00:22.209 to 00:00:51.490, paste mixed two instances of it in the left and right channels, at points where, when each subsequent layer started, it was playing a different note in the scale than the original. I then pitch shifted this down by 10 half steps to match the key of the first two tracks, then time stretched this by a factor of 20.
            track 4: mixed the first 3 tracks but mixing track 3 a bit later than the other two.
            track 5,6&7: pitched the new mix up two octives, took the first 19 seconds and then created three different tracks, each for a note in the C major scale to create a choir effect to use as necessary.
            each note was time stretched to match the time of the others.
            track8: mixed tracks 5,6&7 into a c major which eventually evolves into a c major 7th chord.I then ran that sample through wollo spacer 2 and mixed it as needed into the composition created by mixing the first three tracks.
            track9: pitch shifted track 8 up 5 half steps to a g-major chord to mix in as necessary.
            As always, thanks for listening.

              The Last Passage

              Imagine the year 1845. You are on board with Sir John Franklin on his last expedition to find the final part of the North-West Passage ...

              https://soundcloud.com/ahornberg/the-last-passage


              I loaded the whole sample into Bitwig's sampler and played it on 5 tracks at different pitches.
              I used 20 LFO's to modulate lots of delays, choruses, reverbs and filters.
              Each track has a different loop-length and an unique dry-wet-automation-line.

              So enjoy and feel free to comment ;)

                This Fated Star

                Audacity and Sound Forge. I wanted to use more Sound Forge, but I am still a bit new to it.

                Lots of unused cuts. 5 Horn cuts (4 unused). 5 backgrounds (3 unused). 1 unused noise background.

                Shimmering Bell Sound. Went down the rabbit hole on this one. I used noise removal, stretched and pitch shifted dozens of times. Spent well over an hour on this one sound.
                String/Choir held chord. Cut multiple horn sections and paired them up based on length. Reversed some, adjusted beginning and end, mixed down and put into Iris2.
                Bright Strings for ending. One horn cut in Iris2.

                Ableton Delays, Aether Reverb, Fabfilter C & Saturn.

                  Hi,
                  here's my contribution to the competition. It's called "A Century of Memories":

                  https://soundcloud.com/aural_solace/a-century-of-memories


                  I first de-noised the sample in Adobe Audition CC.
                  Then I used Reaper to create the track, using quite a few VSTs. I uploaded a screenshot, as it would be quite a lot to write and I don't remember every detail.

                  AO OSD 28.jpg

                  Basically, the tools I used most were Granite, TimeFreezer, GRM Tools (Grinder and Evolution), Soundhack spiralstretch and pitchsift, Cable Guys Volumeshaper, Midishaper and Pancake. And Iris 2 and Valhalla VintageVerb.

                  I used a randomized LFO to modulate Wave Zoom and Wave Position in Timefreezer (Metadronos posted this once in the past).

                  In the screenshot, you see the whole sample played a few times normally and a few times reversed

                  Edit: unfortunately the screenshot doesn't get shown in original size, so you can't read the tools I used very well, so here a second one with only the tools:
                  AO OSD 28_Tools.jpg


                  There was some automation, mostly for the scale in GRM Evolution and pitch shift in pitchsift, track volume and the stretch factor in Spiralstretch.
                  I'm sure I forgot some other things, but the most important is here....

                  I hope you enjoy the track! :listening:

                    @Wanterkeelt

                    Your setup is very similar to mine (for current and previous challenges).
                    And I use automation a lot, especially in granular/spectral effects plugins.
                    TimeFreezer is particularly good for such technique. And GRM Evolution is often my secret sauce

                      @ Metadronos:

                      yeah I have to say that a lot of plugins I bought and use I got to know them through one of your posts here (in the software thread or here in the challenges) or from the KVR forums.
                      You're right GRM Evolution is cool, but for this challenge I really discovered Grinder, which is also amazing.
                      Timefreezer is very good too, if only the user interface were updated some day. It looks a bit "amateur" ;)

                        Ok right, 4 snippets of the sample used. The first is a 2 sec cut of the opening tones used to create the spine of the track, Fed into Caustic 3 sampler, looped and played into a melody , maxed attack and release, some reverb and some delay applied. Second is a cut of the opening hiss of ambient noise , forward-back loop, low pass filter with lfo on sine wave filter cut off, lots of delay and reverb and live automation. Third is outro background noise max attack & reverb, band pass filter again with lfo on sine wave cut off and live automation. Last sample is a section of the 'faster bit' low pass filter, lots of release, auto wah, delay and bitcrusher with live automation.

                            I have to say that the compositions for this challenge are truly amazing and exceptional. Fabulous work so far and I can't wait to hear what else people come up with.
