Another installment of Obscure Audio Software:
In this installment of Obscure Audio Software, we step away from the modular stuff to examine Hourglass, a fun (and free) granular audio processor. This is a standalone-only program, though it can load VST plugins. Main screen with a VST automation envelope visible Hourglass is more of a single-purpose type of program than the things I’ve previously covered here.
Latest episode is on DLive:
Welcome to the latest edition of Monday Night Noise Sessions! Most of the sounds in this one come from the hardware side of my setup. There is a drone from the K2000S which is mostly there to prop up the low end, while the Lunetta-style modular (plus an analog filter) is doing much of the rest.
Another edition of Obscure Audio Software:
This edition of Obscure Audio Software will focus on another piece of virtual modular gear, though this time the object of our attention is slightly less complex. Today we’re going to look at Wren, which is a free and open-source standalone-only modular soft synth (Windows only).
Latest episode is up on Steemit:
Welcome to the latest edition of Monday Night Noise Sessions! This one links back to another post I made recently, in which I used databending to process a photo into glitch art, see Rorschach on Acid. The process involved converting the original image into raw data and importing it into Sound Forge for processing with audio effects.
A “how-to” video on using feedback loops in Reaper:
In this video, I show you how to use feedback loops in the Reaper DAW, and cover some of the possibilities. This video… by fstateaudio
You can grab the project file here:
Note that this doesn’t include the sample used in the video, just load any sample into the ReaSamplomatic in the track labeled “snare”.
Second episode of Monday Night Noise Sessions is up on DLive:
Second episode of Monday Night Noise Sessions, recorded “live”, no editing (I lack the bandwidth to do a proper live stream). Audio is a mix of hardware and software. Video is an OBS screen capture of the program I was using to generate/process the sound (Plogue’s Bidule), with VSXu providing additional visuals.
I’ve decided to start writing a series of articles about obscure audio software on Steemit, first up is Bidule.
This will be an ongoing series of articles, though I’m thinking it might only be every other week or so, since there’s only so many obscure bits of audio software out there worth talking about, and in the case of things I may not be familiar with, I want to have some time to get into it.
