Lots of pizzicato--from Operator, a cheap electric guitar, and a cigar-box cloth-string bass, along with feedback from a show I did this week. Mid-week, I started with some rhythmic patterns with a few new sounds...and it wasn't happening. So I added hand drum, and was hearing those more. That suggested hand claps, and the pizzicato Operator sounds from week 29. That led to my putting in some Street (non-)Klein, busting out the old cigar box bass, and then...it needed work. I added a bit of percussion and kick/tom, and then for an x-factor, faded in some snippets of the 1/4-speed version of the feedback show I did this week. Does it add up? Well, you're not wasting too much time with it.
Sounds: hand drum and kick/tom got some Dynamic Tube, and I put some LFO on the drive for that, so it'd vary a bit. I also automated the send to the simple delay. MIDI channels got M4L Humanizer, though on one percussion line I might have turned it off temporarily and forgot to re-enable it. Street Klein got Amp and Cabinet, while the cigar box bass was a difficult to control beast, and needed high pass and low pass to carve out some weirdness. (Also intonation is a very relative concept with this instrument...so I had to tweak a couple notes to be less obviously out.) Nearly everything got a healthy amount of convolution reverb (room depth), and everything got auto-pan. Mastering was, as usual, Full Chain Master, but this time I bumped the drive on it a bit.
Title from the fact that 32 is the fifth power of 2.
