Audial, Fibration (HOME OFFICE)

00:0004:47

Got a little bit of techno goodness for you here as my entry for the HOME OFFICE competition. For all the bad things the lockdown has brought, it has meant I have been able to re-explore one of my passions, making music! Thank you Audiotool team for putting this competition together :) Now onto the project, which begin with a template drum beat and square wave pulv.

Bassline:

This Is 90% pulv and 10% oneshot with a compressor and automation to make sure they have their own space. I use second pulv as a white noise source and run it through a ring modulator modulated by the bassline. This gives the bass a buzz/crunch at the top-end in places. Next I discovered how useful filter key-board tracking is, this is used at 2:05 for a more staccato sound.

Drums:

The drums have a simple 4/4 rhythm so I tried to add variation using the rasselboc, pitch shifting the high hats among other bits and bobs. I use with the "sends" function in the centroid to send the percussion through a pulsar decay and some reverb which is then fed back into the centroid. You'll get a warning here that there is a loop in the circuit but it's only a potential issue if you then use the send function on this output as well, as this creates a feedback loop. But it's fun to live a little dangerously so I do this anyway and get a washed out reverb effect on the percussion.

Pads/synths:

One pulv does most of the heavy lifting in this project, doing both the bassline and also the plucks. For the remaining synths, I went for quite a spooky sound with lots of reverb and filtering, plus a bit more ring modulation thrown in.

      I guess once you hit repub there is no going back, even if you close the app the servers will still render the track and repub... well I've fixed my mistake now

          I think it fits tho. The concept of "Vibrating Fiberoptic Lights" matches the sound design and cover art quite nicely. ^-^
