"convincing feedback noises"

Alright, I'm not sure exactly why this works right now, but here's how I did it:
First, there's a tape echo, I use Modnetic a lot, but I think other will do just fine too (but who knows I'm guessing that Modnetic still outputs something very low level even when the tail has died. Also for some reason intensity still has an effect, too)
Then there's this thing:

it's basically a bitcrusher, but continuous. I never ever used bit reduction, but I decided to give it a shot and there's a sweet spot where it breaks and starts producing a very feedback-y drone. I also modulated echo time a lot for that scratchy noise at 1:17

Thanks! I'll see if I can work out a variation of this process.

Wow, this really takes you on a journey, and I love the way it sounds. The waviness, the bends, the distortion, everything fits together real well. Very nice track.
