Have you ever found a file on your hard drive and wonder where it came from? I recently found a recording of a synth I made (I think it was my Mopho). I don’t know what I was doing when I recorded it, but I saved it nonetheless.
So, I decided to use this as the base for another stretch piece. I took 5 different sections of the recording, ranging from less than a second to over half a minute in length and took them into PaulStretch.
After the stretching was finished, I took the files into Reason where I decided to experiment with the BV512 Vocoder. I used a Spider Audio to merge the audio channels of one of the longer stretches into the modulator and used another long stretch as the carrier. I then used a Pulsar to modulate the frequency bands and the shift control. I also used an Alligator filter to in the insert FX.
For the third longest stretch, I used a Pulveriser into an Etch Red Filter. For the shortest of the stretches, I used a Pulveriser into a Beat Crush. On the sequencer track, I placed this clip three time, reversing one of the clips that I used. All of the short clips had fade ins/outs added to them.
I also took some advice from a previous track I posted and added a simple Sub Bass line to this piece using a Thor into a Pulveriser. It adds a nice droning element to the piece.
I individually EQd and mixed all of the tracks. For Mixer Insert FX, I used 2 LeSpaces and 2 RV7000s. For the Master FX, I used an Audiomatic, into Peff’s Hexpressor mastering suite, substituting an Ozone for the Maximiser.
