I'm sure you've answered this before, but are these Fruity Loops files?  And how can they be so small?

The little ping-pong effect is great!

Yes, these are FL Studio files, you can download a trial (pc/mac) and play/edit these if you want. The trial is fully functional/no time limit, except any files you save can only be opened with a licensed copy of FL (so you don't have to lose anything when playing with the demo).

These files are small because I limited myself to only using Sytrus patches, which is an FL synth with FM capabilities... Think of a DX-7 but on steroids. Because it's all synth presets and note data, with real-time effects, the resulting file is very tiny compared to samples. Keeping to Sytrus and native plugins makes it easier for me to share my projects with the WB community!

This particular track also uses FL's Speech Synthesizer. This Speech Synth is very old, but I took advantage of the fact that when it was made, disk space used to be an issue, so FL lets you use the text file in a few of the places you can use samples such as the Wave Traveller (a scratching sampler) and Fruity Slicer (a sample chopper). The speech is rendered at runtime, so no need for any comparatively large wav files. I also ran this through Vocodex for vocoding the pitch. There are other methods of pitching the Speech Synth, but this was the quickest and easiest. Unfortunately the newer FL samplers and re-pitch tools do not support the old Speech Synth text files. (the speech synthesizer might not even work on the mac)

I did create vocals using just Sytrus in a previous WB track, but the method is very tedious and time consuming. I simply recreated frequency bands which gave it a vocoder sound (essentially a vocoder is just a bank of filter bands). It is barely intelligible, but people have been able to understand it correctly. I do have some plans to recreate vocals by tracking the pitch of individual overtones (additive synthesis), but it will require building some very specific tools to both track the overtones, and convert it into something Sytrus can import (not much). An accurate model of human voice would entail an array of very precise filters and resonators which is something Sytrus isn't really good at.

I just cannot believe how powerful Sytrus is, nor can I believe how creative and masterful you are at exploiting the possibilities.

Also, I was today years old when I realized that Sytrus is like Citrus.

i like the muted filtery percussion sounds.. scratches the inside of my brain smile

I like that synthetic crackling going on in the center, it gives such a presence and crispness to the entirety of the track. Well done!

I've just read the whole explanation you gave to Orangedrink about Fruity Loops. If it runs correctly under Linux, I'd be glad to give it a try.

It is amazing what you get with your software, though the merit i in the programmer, not in the program

Awesome track, by the way. I always like your "vocals".

Super catchy Bassbunnies!  Love that flittering synth that pans around.  You are the Sytrus_Masta imho.  Oooh that breakdown at 2:50 yais.

Yeah, I've been using it for 2 decades! Let me know if it works for you!
