I decided to try some experiments with the Vocoder effect in Reason. Also, I wanted to get into the spirit of the season and use a more unnerving piece of audio to create a haunting atmosphere. I decided to take samples from the Librivox version of the story “This is Klon Calling” by Walt Sheldon, as read by the late Gregg Margarite. (@ https://librivox.org/short-science-fiction-collection-018/). I took the reading into Audacity, where it was sliced into samples, mostly taken from the back third of the recording.
For the main “Phone Call Section” of the recording, I used a modified Vocoder Combinator, with CV control coming from a Pulsar. For the “After the call” section, I used another modified Vocoder Combinator. I also took samples in random order and reversed the, playing them through two LeSpaces, with CV control coming from a Pulsar and a Randrome Jr.
To add more sound elements, I also used 3 different “Atmospheric” combinators, which I CV triggered with a combination of a Pulsar and Divisor.
I mixed the track live, then I equalized and added insert FX, comprised of two Audiomatics. For the Master FX, I used Peff’s Hexpressor combinator and an Ozone.
