      FLStudio Sampler, Slicer & Granulizer

      Buffer Override, Chipcrusher, Decimort, ET-301, GBand, Mangleverb, pvexag, Permut8, Red Phatt Pro, Transient Master, Transverb, UberMod, Uhbik-A, Uhbik-G, Uhbik-Q, ValhallaRoom

      I told myself I was going to do something more serene and it just wasn't happening. Night noises in the wild can be relaxing and peaceful or mysterious and unnerving. Blame Neil Gaiman's new book and the tensions of politics in the last few days for my thoughts going more toward the latter.

      The melodic-ish bits started as a lucky accident with Granulizer. It amused me to work with that kind of sound, because an older piece I did with a circuit-bent keyboard had a similar "horn call" sound. Most of the rythms in it (except some of the fine treble detail and modulation) came from throwing bits of the sample at a slicer and quantizing it.

        "Disellirum" - angelic critters

        http://soundcloud.com/metadronos/disellirum


        Sample processing: Ambitron, iZotope Iris, PaulStretch, Audiobulb Ambient.
        Effects: Ambience, GlaceVerb, PanCake2.

        Step 1:
        Original sample was processed in PaulStretch, stretched 2x with shifting mode to tonal
        and octave shifting down. Output sounded like strewing metal nails on the concrete floor.
        Output was strongly de-hissed.
        This sound is not used directly in track, but is only processed in Step 2.

        Step 2:
        Output from Step 1 was processed in two slightly different AudioBulb Ambient presets,
        resulting in Layer 1 and Layer 2 of final track. Those are "angelic voices".
        Those presets started as single one, which through parameters manipulation
        became able to change output from Step 1 into voice-like serene sounds.
        Output was strongly de-hissed.

        Step 3:
        Original sample was inserted into all three slots of iZotope Iris.
        For every slot different pitch parameters were defined, and different areas
        of spectrum were selected for resynthesis. Areas with sounds of critters were omitted,
        only the rest of recording was processed in Iris. I generated output by simultaneously
        playing notes D3 and D4 in Iris. Internal delay and reverb FX were used.
        Ouput became Layer 3. This is bottom slowly evolving drone.

        Step 4:
        Original sample was inserted into two slots of M-RGT Ambitron.
        Few minutes of tweaking resulted in sound with some residual characteristics
        of critters sound but with better ambience & atmosphere. Internal chorus, delay and reverb FX were used.
        Resulting sound was strongly de-hissed. Output became Layer 4.
        This is most dynamic layer with some resemblance to original sample remaining.

        FX and Mixing:
        Layer 1 was routed through Ambience and PanCake2, Layer 2 through GlaceVerb.
        All four tracks were time-aligned: Track starts with Layer 4, then
        Layer 3 fades-in, followed by Layers 2 and 1.
        Near end of track, Layer 3 fades-out as first, followed by Layers 2 and 1.
        Fading-out Layer 4 closes the track.

            i may not have understood the rules very well but all i got is an old version of ntrack and some free plugins so here is what i did and i apologize if its not right...

            track 1
            ersatz
            supaphaser
            freefall
            ringelay
            sykk
            tal-dub
            twin delay
            waterfall

            track 2
            clean - louder

            track 3
            ersatz
            supaphaser
            freefall
            ringelay
            sykk
            tal-dub
            twin delay
            waterfall
            pan-o-rama(stereo)

            and then i stereoized the whole thing @ once...

              My last minute entry! Titled "A genetic distrust of the amphibious"
              http://soundcloud.com/rabbitsquirrel/a-genetic-distrust-of-the

              First took the sample, fattened it with some delays, then did a few extreme wahs on it, and took the result and layered it with a time and stereo reversed, inverted version of itself. I then took that, added more delay, duplicated it, reversed the copy, added some pretty dramatic reverb to it, and them combined it back with the original. The result was then slowed down about 58%, and then a Paulstreched and delayed version of the original field recording was added in.
              really, there is no such thing as unlistenable noise...
