Creating an Evolving Rhythmic Soundscape in Tardigrain

Sound designer Les Productions Zvon got a whole lot of weird out of Tardigrain on this evolving soundscape.

Video Description:

Here's an example of what can be achieved with the Memory Collection samples when they are processed and transformed. I have imported in Tardigrain granular synthesizer a sample from March 2021 reward for my Patreon patrons.

I have used a factory preset as starting point. The set of long vertical lines at the bottom is the "keyboard" zone The lighter grey keys are the ones that are played and the thin moving black lines show the aftertouch modulation. Tardigrain makes good use of the iPad's touchscreen.

Sounds like electrified wooden ships! Lots of creaking and squeaking!
The more straightforward video demo is here:

Samples of this pack are from the first half of an episode of the 1950's Robin Hood TV show now in the Public Domain. Second part will be this month's reward!

86 samples (32.9 MB), like all the Memory Collection packs, the samples are classified in folders and they include voice/spoken word/dialogs, sfx/foley and music.

Chris Lody: Wall Wart Music - Pickup Coil with volca Modular

ChrisLody used a pickup coil to get random electrical signals off of the transformers in power supplies. These were then fed into the KORG volca Modular to generate wild results!

Here's a nice weird experimental jam for a bank holiday Sunday afternoon. I would have liked more time to work on this but despite having 4 whole days to potentially be in the studio it turned into a bank holiday weekend of housework and decorating. Uuuuuughhh.

Never mind, this turned out okay anyway. So the main idea here is the the little black thing I'm holding in my right hand is a coil of wire around a metal core connected up like a microphone. It detects magnetic fields given off by electronic and electrical equipment, something know as circuit sniffing by some people. I connected it to the little Korg Sound on Sound box you can see at the top of the shot which is acting as a preamp and then into the Volca Modular via the CV input. By positioning in various places above the power supplies I have on the desk the Volca Modular hears them as various humming and noise signals that I can then treat like any other sound on the V.Mod, routing them to the output or using them as control signal. Good fun if a bit unpredictable.

The Volca Sample is playing a chopped up recording of me running on gravel I found in my field recordings, the 8Bit Warps is in FM mode playing a sort of choir patch I made. By the way, the whole thing is in 15/16 time as if I needed to add any more weirdness

I'm now also rocking a brand new Focusrite 18i8 audio interface to replace the M-Audio Fasttrack I've had for about 15 years so this was a chance to try recording some multi tracks with that and also to try running an fx send out and back in to my Zoom 1201 which seems to have become my trademark reverb sound or something. It's nice to actually be able to tweak and mix properly after recording again like I use to do back when my Alesis Multimix 16 Firewire was still alive :)

Imaginando FRMS Synth Deep Dive Walkthrough

Gavinski’s Tutorials goes deep into the elaborate powerhouse of synthesis inside of FRMS!

Video Description:

FRMS by Imaginando is a fantastic synth for desktop and iOS that I recommend without hesitation. It is a unique blend of granular, subtractive and FM synthesis. You can load or quickly record files to granularise and even do live granular processing. You can use your samples as FM operators, modulating the layers in all kinds of complex formations. I have a huge giveaway for those watching at the time of release. Imaginando are allowing 5 lucky winners to win any Imaginando app - best of all, you are not limited to winning iOS versions, Imaginando are allowing winners to choose the desktop versions of apps if they prefer - very generous indeed, as FRMS desktop version costs 120 euros! Incidentally, at the time of writing, both desktop and iOS version of FRMS are on sale at 50% off. This video has timestamps when viewed in YouTube.
