0scape4-waterpour

By zirafa on September 20, 2020 11:59 pm

I was pouring water out of a jug the other day and noticed a low glug sound that I thought might be cool to sample. When I actually recorded it, the mic picked up way more high frequency information than I expected -- in particular the sound of the water filling the glass ended up sounding much louder than the low pitched glug sound.


I tried to see if I could mimic the low frequency glug on the 0-coast, and while I don't really think I got the timbre right, the rhythm was kind of close, or at least had the same spirit of the water glug. In the end I kept the sample looping and tried to improvise over it with the 0-coast which I think sorta sounds kinda like a free jazz jam session between a pitcher of water and the 0-coast (???). I have no idea, lol.


# 0-coast settings
From FINGERTIP to TEMPO
From CLK to SLOPE TRIG
From SLOPE EOC to CONTOUR GATE
FROM SLOPE SLOPE to LIN FM
LIN FM knob 100%
Pitch knob 0% - 50%
Overtone knobs: 25%, 0%
Multiple knobs: 75%, 100%
Slope knobs: cycle off, 90%, 0%, 50%
Contour knobs: 50%, 0%, 90%, 0%
Dynamics 50%
Balance: 25%

Note: Touch fingertip to tempo in cable to trigger sound. Slowly increase pitch knob to raise pitch of glug sound. Increase SLOPE RISE time for slower glugs, decrease it for faster glugs.

this track is wild.  love how the sample and 0 coast kind of cross over making it sounds like a video game jug, constantly pouring.  like a donkey kong barrel pouring out!

did we ever talk about this video that illustrates how hot water sounds different than cold water?

Really cool how the glug and splash create their own rhythm.  Very inspourational indeed tongue

So good. Have you played with the Koma Elektronik Field Kit at all? Might be right up your alley with that 0cst.
