  • MSV Not Invented Here

    Hi Peeps,

    I'm not sure what to call this, genre wise. I've labelled it as "ambient noise" as it has hardly any melodic components at all. I just wanted to experiment with Absynth and Adaptiverb.

    When I first bought Absynth 3 I remember thinking, "blimey, some of these presets are unusable." But since trying to develop my "dark ambient" skills I find I am turning to them more and more. And throwing Adaptiverb into the mix is enormous fun.

    So, here it is:-



    I hope you find it to your liking


    cheers

    That sounds like a very usable sound source to me. It's just a matter of finding the right context or setting for it. This was an interesting listen with a lot of depth and variation. Good job

    Funny things, presets. I think they are a great source of inspiration. Even a "bad" or uninspiring preset can be made to sound interesting by placing it in the right context. Arrpeggiated synth patches are a good case. If you just hold a key down, you can hear what the designer was trying to achieve by listening to the pattern repeating, but these patterns can often be made a lot more interesting by using very brief sections of the entire sequence and then re-combining them. I've used this technique on a few tracks now, and it seems to work quite well. The sequencer patterns on "Refraktor" were all made this way, and "Axis Part 2" also features a simplified version of this technigue.

      Hiya Tim,

      Thanks for listening...

      Yeah, I know what you mean re presets, and I often use factory presets and just tweak them a little, or use automation to change the sound a touch. I've also done what you have said a lot too, by using very brief sections of an arp patch.

      Adaptiverb has opened up a new world of possibilities too... A lot of the drones I have been creating are usually sequences that Adaptiverb then "flattens" out... Quite interesting. And it's also interesting how the more bizarre Absynth presets work through Adaptiverb... It's a pricey bit of software but I think it has been worth it for me

      cheers
