edgy effects

By Q-Rosh on June 28, 2020 10:37 am

To honor some old and forgotten technologies, I used the steno-minicassette-recorder for the recording of some guitartracks, which I was sending through effect-pedals in playback mode and got some weired sounds, especially when pressing stop and start. But, it all was kind of edgy and harsh, so I tried my best to make it halfway acceptable to listen to. This is not a song, just an experimental exploring of audiotextures on 3 guitarloops.

You got so many interesting sounds out of this, and it's such a cool experiment. Hopefully you'll be able to use a bunch of these ideas in other tracks down the line, too.

That's funny, I also explored the idea of edginess this week.  Some really cool and interesting sounds in here and I think it works as kind of an experimental ambient track as is.

This is great, it's always awesome to explore the limits of technologies and especially to the limits where they start breaking down and all the interesting textures that arise from that. That was fun!

This is awesome; stereo minicassette recorder? Never heard of that! But I am digging it smile

This has such an underwater vibe to it... Great little smooth guitar lick with awesome delay and echo type effects. You dont call it a song, but I could listen to more of this  smile

Super sweet effects here, I love sound design explorations like this!

Man that intro guitar is so smooth and lovely.  Great tone on it.  Agree with the others: you've got some really cool effects going on here.  I'm sure this wasn't easy to get the track sounding as good as you did.

Nice cerebral experience.

You had me real quick with the opening guitar progression.  This has a great calming meditative feel to it.  Like I should be sitting out on a porch sipping a drink watching the stars float on.  Really enjoyed the effects on the guitar lines, especially towards the end.

Listening to this on headphones and sounds fantastic, very soothing and allowing one to drift away yet keeps drawing you back in as new sounds worm their way in.
