The sounds an old arcade machine might make if it could hallucinate.The audio in this one was generated entirely with the excellent (and free!) VCV Rack software modular synth. You can download the patch and a list of the modules used below:
The video is just a screen grab of VCV Rack processed through AcidCam.
I’ve started up the old “Noise Session” thing again, under a new name, and on YouTube this time. I know, it sucks, but it works. 🙂 I probably won’t be able to do these weekly like before, but I will try to keep them semi-regular.
I’ll be trying some different things, for example the video is just the visuals this time, with a screenshot posted here of the setup used. I might change that up. As usual, though I lack the bandwidth to do an actual live stream, this was recorded “live,” in one take.
As for details on what was used: Plogue’s Bidule was the DAW/host, and Glitch Machines‘ Palindrome and my recent Reaktor creation Loid’s Cousin were the sound sources there. These were joined by the hardware Loid and a feedback loop run out through a set of outputs on my audio interface to a channel on my mixer and back in through a pair of inputs. The mixer has another feedback loop set up with the old “delay send returned to a mixer channel” trick, and the PC feedback is being processed with that and other hardware fx. A bunch of fx plugins and Bidule processing are also in use, see the screenshot for details.
Loud noises, flashing lights.Playing around with a recent Reaktor creation in Bidule. Additional “accompaniment” from hardware (Lunetta, feedback loops, fx)….
An older video that never made it to YouTube, decided to post it. Visions of Chaos is free software for generating fractals and more, available for Windows and Android.
