    One Sample Dare #47 - Brewery Edition

    Are you ready for One Sample Dare: Brewery Edition? I hope so!

    http://jasonvincion.com/samples/OSD47.wav

    The sources for the montage of samples are: the motor from a glycol unit, an empty nitrogen tank I gave a good slap, pulling out the screw that attaches the lid to the brew kettle and then putting the lid back on, the grain mill and an exhaust fan being turned on, a more concentrated focus on the exhaust fan, a transfer pump, a little background noise while transferring, the HLT (hot liquor tank) going dry during said transfer and the pump pulling air, and a fermentor being cleaned through an internal spray ball.

    Perhaps I went a little overboard, but there are lots of sounds in the brewery and I wanted to capture as many as I could.

    Now, for the boilerplate:

    ==================================================

    if you decide to accept this challenge, you must follow the rules below:

    ==================================================

    the idea of the contest is to create ambient track using only one sample.

    rules are:

    1. additional samples, soundfonts, synths, samplers are not permitted (except instruments which will use only given contest sample loaded). any other processing of contest sample is permitted.

    2. you can use as many copies of original sample as you want, each processed with respect to rule 1.

    3. time for submissions is 16 days, counted to midnight, utc, of 16th day.

    4. submissions should be uploaded to place available for all ao members. links should be posted in thread dedicated to the given round. please, do not use hosting with countdown, captcha, and other obstacles.

    5. sample is provided under cc0 (public domain) license.

    6. winner of contest is chosen by votes of ao members.

    7. winner of contest chooses sample for next contest.

    8. participants should disclose the formula for winning track for the benefit of community.

    ==================================================

    good luck!

      Thanks! I figured I might as well go for the highest quality I could, since the Zoom H1 I used to record everything has 24-bit/96kHz capacity and with a 2GB SD card, it has close to an hour of time to work with. Nothing but the best for y'all! :thumbsup:

          Made while still slightly under the influence of a Founder's KBS, a truly wonderful and breathtakingly expensive beer that was a birthday present. :biggrin:



          First half is the whole sample 'improvised' on using ambient v.3. Second half the same using The Mangle. Both multi-tracked and treated with delay and reverb. The ending is some bits cut up and overlaid.

            My turn! My turn!



            The synth sound is from the resonance of the nitrogen tank, which I tweaked a fair bit in Paul Stretch - that program can do some amazing things with sounds (though I don't imagine I have to tell anyone here that). :razz:

            Everything else was assembled with my Goldwave/Reason/Reaper triumvirate, with most of the effects applied in Reason.

            As an aside, that's a picture of the 3.5 bbl system I brew on.

            Enjoy!

              Life In Retrograde



              3 Parts

              Dreaming in Grey - Took the more soundscapey (is that a word) parts of the sample, normalized and remove the gap between segments in SoundForge. Use Granulator II while playing a very simple set of intervals.

              The Working Years - The entire sample in Granulator II. Used a custom sequencer to control tempo, grain and pitch.

              The Gift of Childhood - Cut the Bell in Audacity. Iris2 handle the sample playback. My custom sequencer played a generative melody. Took the same melody output into the standalone version of Paul's Stretch (4x with octave mixer) to create the pad beneath the bells.

              Ableton Live provided EQ. Rob Papen's Delay and 2C Audio's Aether for FX. I have been using Rob Papen's Delay for a long time, but was unable to get it to work in Live until recently. I can't recommend it enough.

                made under the influence of lemsip..

                in audition i added 7 voice chorus and convolution reverb
                i split the file into 3 wav files
                these i used as oscillators in the protoplasm tsm pro synth. (live 8 daw) and the following chain: pong texture > izotope vinyl > ddly > neutrino. recorded in audition and mastered.

                the coda used the 1st split wav file in protoplasm and a midi file generated from fakemusicgenerator.com which i messed around with, slowed down and eq'd / mastered in audition

                    I've got something in the can but I am thinking of dumping it. The samples are great, but I am failing to come up with anything that I like.

                    Might have to give this one a miss :(

                      If I've got the rules right, it should be on January 18th at 11:59:59 PM UTC. Still plenty of time! :D

                        I started on this sample but it turned out to become a non-ambient track :dunno:

                            Nor me.
                            I don't usually consider myself to be an Ambient musician, I like the term Experimental Improvisational.
                            But the definition of Ambient is vague.
                            As long as there are no strong metrical or harmonic cues and the emphasis is on listening with intent, I think a work qualifies as ambient.
