A Silly Scope

By Ipaghost on February 2, 2020 11:34 pm

Some chunky oscilloscope music for you! Music is meant to be watched on a oscilloscope, so a bit loud! Sorry!

Inkscape->rabiscoscopio2->FlStudio Sytrus/WaveShaper

Download the 178kb FLP here! Includes visualizer for viewing.
Download the 96k FLAC (54.6MB) from soundcloud.

Fun and funky! Wish I could scope it out further (see what I did there).

This is cool as shit, there's so much going on here.  The descending arp thing, all the intense stereo wobbles, all the glitchy little breaks. Shits wild.

If you used oscistudio to make this this is really fine work!  Nice and musical scope music! Jazz chords and wobbles make this stand out smile

I should have used oscistudio! But the images were exported from inkscape to rabiscoscopio2. Those wavs were converted to oscillators in sytrus or waveshapers, and more fun channel stuff mixed in for fun! I did it this way to keep it super tiny and not dependent on 3rd party plugins. Feel free to poke around the project!

Video is now up!

Damn that's clever. I don't have FL though.

February 3, 2020 1:12 pm

Impressive.  The videoreally adds another dimension to the tunes.  The end tripped me out!  Good stuff ipa

February 3, 2020 3:25 pm

That's incredible. Genuinely incredible. Mad respect heart

February 3, 2020 4:59 pm

My hat`s off to your fantastic video combined with the silly scope song. never seen something like this before.

February 3, 2020 6:47 pm

That wide stereo pan... it's in my head!  I like how you push into the total distortion and pull back.  Great sounds all around.  A sonic smorgasbord all around, but those simple vintage organ tones are well placed. Must go louder!

February 4, 2020 12:20 am

looks sooo cool! love the singin' mouth and ipa logo showing up in there. Need to get a real oscillator now! heart

One of the single coolest things I've seen done on this site or with FL studio, I downloaded it and put it through Wave Candy to see what was going on. Absolutely amazing.

There is a free trial for pc/mac (possibly wine & linux). You can save your projects, but you can't open them until you register it. But I think this project was made on a registered account, you should be able to play it unless you resave it.... i think, never tried it!

Lol, I typically don't do fade outs, but it's the slow 'goodbye' of music, so I decided to get silly with it lol

That's just what the pictures look like! Luckily images sound very wide! Interestingly pitch or scratching doesn't change the picture too much! Can't go any louder since it would go off the oscilloscope, and compressors scramble up the picture! But, I guess I should do a proper master for other media.

I've seriously thought about it! That or a laser galvanometer! Could do a whole light show this way!

Yeah, Wave Candy looks way better than ZgameEditor, but needs some stereo shaping to fix it... I have it set up in a patcher already. PrettyScope looks really good, but it kept crashing and corrupting(!) my files, so I just stuck with flstudio. I also wanted to use kritzikratzi/Oscilloscope but had issues running it correctly on my machine. Overall, I spent more time on this project trying to get other people's stuff to work, and just ended doing most of the stuff in flstudio. lol

amazing concept and execution. downloaded and slowed it down in kritzikratzi/Oscilloscope, looks crazy

I was going to say that you should probably use a lossless version of the song, but I tested the mp3 and it looks pretty good as it is! I guess I used a high enough bitrate (mp3s save space by cutting out frequencies you can't hear but in this case can see). Also I tried the pre-release version of kritzikratzi/Oscilloscope and it worked on my machine! The slow feature is pretty cool! I think there is code for video export I'll have to check out.

We are now controlling the transmission. We control the horizontal and the vertical. We can deluge you with a thousand channels or expand one single image to crystal clarity and beyond. We can shape your vision to anything our imagination can conceive.

My mind is blown as to how you were simultaneously able to create a funky dynamic track and those oscilloscope images.

It definitely didn't seem like it was going to work... but the limitations of the technique made it fun to work on, like a weird puzzle; trying to fit everything in the right place. 95% of writing this was just making the instruments and trouble shooting.
