very cool update for the digital age, tho...i look forward to giving this a whirl
EDIT: just listened to the sample and not only like the result but the content too--your words, or a quote, tallow?
some of my words, a few lines borrowed from (believe it or not) robin cook.
you have anything to share?
well, i read sphinx because i'm nuts about ancient egypt but i found his prose to be pretty turgid, so--oh, you mean about sampling? well i do most of my sampling on an mpc, so my tricks (such as they are) are pretty specific to that machine and i doubt much of a revelation to anyone who owns one--nevertheless...
on playback, chaining series of multiply triggered sounds with slight tuning, filter, attack, and resolution variations, for huge sounds [a three-in-one pad will trigger another three-in-one pad, which triggers another and so on, all simultaneously]. when playing back in real time, rather than sequencing, like to set pads for poly and fuck with the parameters in the edit screen while pressing repeatedly (with the attack rolled back) for what sound like pitch shifting delays, filtered delays, etc.
on the recording side, i've had some fun by sampling the component parts of an arpeggiated electric guitar part, sequencing them and scrambling them in places. i've also been having a lot of fun lately with a little portastudio i picked up--not only recording certain parts onto tape before transferring to my daw but also transferring whole sections of songs (e.g., intro) first to tape and then back to digital for strange contrast effects. i've also taken to doubling the stereo track of a song recorded in digital onto tape and then flying that back onto two digital tracks--then screwing with the slide/nudge function a few ms to get some crazy flanging effects.
maybe that'll touch off a spark with someone but i feel i have more to learn than to offer here...so please keep the ideas coming, this is good stuff
