In Topic: VSTs comming to Reason!

28 April 2017 - 11:16 AM

Propellerhead was recently bought by another company, there was a thread at KVR.

 

Overall it looks like they are trying to save a sinking ship, good luck to them.

 

I've not heard about it, but it is quite likely indeed - I don't see it mentioned as often as it was back in early noughties.

Integration of VST can be a thing to save it.

Would be a pity if it disappeared - it's approach is pretty unique, especially since introduction of extension racks.

The modular structure is pretty sweet and it extends to VSTs as well.

On the other hand I find it hard to identify with software that tries to look like hardware, that's why I went with Ableton Live because it doesn't pretend to be a mixer desk or an analogue synth :D

Will have to check the demo someday :)


In Topic: the stuttery sound

Nectarios, thanks! That's really something  :blink:  :o

 

 

If you don't want to spend a lot of money on a big system, there is the Roland Scooper which does not need a case with a 12V buss and you can do a lot by manual tweaking.

 

I'll probably just limit myself to plug-ins for now...  :(

If you want more randomness, try Dblue Glitch. It is an insert effect like Beat Repeat, with its own internal sequenser. You may program it so that "something" should happen at cretain point, but what exactly will happen will be left to the discretion of a randomizer.

 

The Finger is also an insert controlled by its own midi channel, when I use it I play the processed part in a loop, hit random keys and record what is happening.

 

I totally admire Marian Arts technical skills and I feel that his husic is not a random mess of farts and glitches but very carefully arranged. It requires some special mood to appreciate though. I listened to some samples from this album, maybe someday I'll dive deeper into it.

 

Thanks, really appreciate your suggestions! Just found two M4L devices that seem to be exactly what I need, although I'll maybe experiment more first with simple & free stuff:

And do check that Martian Arts album - it always lifts my spirit when I listen to it! Somehow, despite all the harsh sounds, it's very bright and uplifting. My #1 release of 2017 so far :)

Cosmosis: It may be is just very short notes with almost zero amp env release (if you mean the TB-like synth, e.g., at 2:12-2:14). Try paiting few notes in a row in a piano roll aligned to 1/32 grid, then shorten the note lenths (not changing the note start position) so that there would be a little gap between the notes.


Yeah, I tried that and it works well, but the thing is it relies on my own gut feel of where and how to put it. I find that it works much better if it's randomised. What I did recently, I used Live's Beat Repeat via randomised ghost clips and simply recorded it. I loved how chaotic it got and I could just then edit stuff I wasn't liking.
 

Martian Arts: Idk, some space-time manipulation in a modular hardware, probably invloving some extraterrestial technologies, hope Nectarios will tell what he did here.


So I take it you rather like the album, then? At least from the technical perspective :P
 

Iirc your Ableton should have a plugin called Beat Repeater or something, try it for stuttery effects.


Yes, I'm using that and there's a lot of alternatives for MaxForLive that I need to give a try as well.
 

Also if you have enough time and patience, you can bounce an audio and do it manually on the audio track.


I have neither :( And also I like to keep everything in MIDI for as long as I can. I'm a control freak, which - I know - is very unhealthy for productivity :)

So, what's the release date? Suntrip' page says 13th May, Arabesque 12th May and the banner few posts up 1st May (or is it just a text divider)?
