Let's Play with FRMS

One common mistake that new YouTubers make is in apologizing for a performance at the start of the video. They'll say things like, "oh this is my first time doing this..." or have a description that is deprecating of their results. Sometimes this is just false modesty, but an apology will color how the performance is received.

Nothing is wrong with this video. In fact, everything is wonderful! How are you doing? Did you sleep well?

Video Description:

Imaginando brings us an impressive combination of granular and traditional synthesis in a powerhouse combination. This video is a bit unlike others in this series. Due to the complexity of FRMS, I didn't try going into this with a clear plan. I just wanted to document the sound design process. Which honestly turned into a train wreck that lasted over an hour. I've done some aggressive editing on this to bring it down to less than 30 minutes.

I think it still retains all of the essential information. I hope it reveals that the process of creating a patch doesn't always go smoothly, but if you take your time and explore you will be rewarded! I love the final result!

That video sounds so well-rehearsed! What’s your trick? Which tools do you use to sound so breezy? Oh, and this video is too long, so I stopped after a minute or two.

LOL! Thanks for the laugh, Enkerli!
I totally get the buzz you are getting from those sounds. Used to go up to Sault Sainte Marie and get as close to the waters edge in the narrows to get my guts and brain as near to the foghorns as possible. When those big bad boys started to enter the slide downhill they'd really lay on those rumblers cuz they ain't stopping for nothing no how till they're flushed out into Lake Huron (the North Channel actually but you know what I mean). You can actually see those behemoths accelerating as they tip down the throat of the "rapids." Toss in a stiff tailwind and I pretty much guarantee you will get a queasy feeling in the old guts and a nagging notion in the old breadpan, that just maybe, ya might want to move a little farther away. Beats the heck out the simulations DIS and their ilk sell in their parks. Had to laugh when I got to thinking about playing your video coasting west down I-70 through Vail. Would the troopers pull me over? Then I got yet a better laugh realizing I recreate those FRMS sounds just for giggles half the time I head back from grocery shopping. Can't resist cranking up the diesel's turbo exhaust gas engine brake when coasting down hill form the WalMuck. Of course, if anybody called me on it, I'd claim I was just trying get through the local speed trap within the speed limit.

P.S. Should I mention you gots some serious right iBro action going on? Snidely Whiplash! Very cool. I'd be disappointed if it was just an effect of the cam angle.

P.S. P.S. Should I mention how many times you pulled a Dr. Fauci ?

There's a lot of very interesting research on how we perceive faces.

Some people focus on the nose, and are extraordinarily good at identifying people. I'm like this. My husband is in awe of my ability to name an actor in a movie that I saw once 30 years ago in a minor roll from some random 80's movie. It looks like a super power to him, but it is really just the way my brain looks at faces. Age doesn't matter, my brain just remembers the nose in relation to other features and makes a map of that.

Most people focus on other details, like hair. Since I have no hair, that means most people focus on my eyebrows. I'm keenly aware of this, so I've always kept my eyebrows animated!

I'm not sure at all what you mean by pulled a Dr. Fauci. I know whom you're referring too, but I have no idea what I did that is like him.
