Re: Emptyset's feedback loop techniques

Sorry I worded it badly! I just checked the patch, there are aux sends to reverb and delay, but they are not being sidechained, they are just being summed together wit hthe parallel chains, through another compressor so they pump in and out.

Re: What VST-FX, end of chain, for the modular ?

U-He Presswerk (dynamics control)
Brainworx BX Console N (saturation, filtering, compression, EQ)
Elysia Karakter (saturation)

That's my end of chain processing for modular. Add a bit of Valhalla Vintage Verb on a send, blend to taste.

Re: Emptyset's feedback loop techniques

Hi, sorry I don't get notification emails so I have to remember to come check back. That diagram looks fine, only real difference is that I'm not using any sidechaining or feedback, it's just two parallel chains being mixed together :) i do parallel chains being mixed together and send into one emp...

Re: Recommend an analog delay

I had a DMM 1100, it sounded OK but went into distortion way too easily. Which I guess is a +/- depending on use case. I found it too finicky to dial in so sold it.
Would love an original big box because Pygmalion, but Reverb prices can fuck right off :/

Re: Recommend an analog delay

If you can find a Boss DM300, they sound amazing. BBD goodness, no clock noise, and a tone knob that goes from muddy to super bright & crunchy (presumably some kind of band pass filter). Also switchable to JC style chorus. In context, I own a pair of RE-201s and a lot of the time I prefer the Boss....

Re: Resonestor Dub techno chords - anything similar out there?

Not Euro, but Clavia Micromodular is great for this. There's a Karplus Strong patch in the online cookbook that can be adapted to offer MIDI-controlled resonator chords.

Re: Autechre

I reckon early AE and later AE are basically two different artists. Not literally, but stylistically.
Personally I can't stand the early stuff, and some of the more recent stuff is a bit all over the shop. For me, their highlights are Chiastic Slide and Confield, bloody brilliant albums.

On the contrary, there absolutely is a "perfect" arrangement (and I've found it) :cloud:

Re: Running CV through reverb ?

I don't think anyone mentioned some sort of intermediate method of encoding and recovering CV. I mean it's a niche use but known for decades that while you can't put CV onto tape directly, you can record encoding CV as audio amplitude and going out an envelope follower to get positive DC. Nothing t...

Re: Emptyset's feedback loop techniques

problem with this (analog) setup is that it is critically unstable. it's nearly impossible to recreate exact tone or sequence, because so many variables including things like room temperature and humidity. on the other hand, digital solution a lot stable, but sounds worse for me (especially at deep...

Yes! That's the part of his sound that I found the most interesting. I've been trying to achieve the same sounds through Ableton Live stock effects and I can get maybe a quarter of the way there, but I'm guessing it's important that the effects are analog modeling to get those weird artifacts.

Re: Emptyset's feedback loop techniques

As far as I can tell, thru experimental experience, it's all about fine tuning compressor response. The life and animation in the white noise, is wrapped up in how the compressor responds and recovers from the sine wave attack. Once the effects are dialed in, it's a fascinating experiment to tweak; ...

Re: Gear you own multiples of.

I fell in love with the MS-20 about 6 years ago, and so I own a pair. Not a perfect pair, mind, and not vintage; a full size keys kit, and a full size desktop module. My original idea was to manufacture a stand/case that would hold both together into a super MS(40?) configuration. I haven't done tha...

Look forward to trying this out.
Out of curiosity, is this in any way related to FM/AM in the radio transmission context? (I know I could google that, but since you're here.. ;))
