Finally taking advantage of Nuendo’s sampler track, which has been sitting unused in my DAW for quite some time now. For a test run I used a birdsong sound effect, loading it in so that each key of my MIDI keyboard played it back at a different pitch, and in no time I threw together some simple musique concrète. It’s pretty rough, though I did add a little reverb to smooth things out a bit. There’s some weird digital-y stuff going on in the high end. So if dissatisfied with this post in any way, you are welcome to apply for a full refund.

Another day at the office— assorted implements for blue-sky FX development.
Playing around with some varied synth voices on a new project. The recipe cards that come with the Arturia Microbrute-- those perforated orange sheets behind the keyboard in one of the images (you put them over the console, and they’re marked up to direct knob-twiddling for the creation of certain timbres)-- allow for templates I can tweak for further editing of unique voices. Pretty cool. I’ve also looked up some patches on mbpatches.com, and originally I was noting each URL I cribbed from for recall, but I wound up tweaking them all so much that eventually I didn’t even bother with that. Instead, the photo documentation of knob settings (plus post-it note to remind me of modulation actions) in the other image depicts the high-tech method I’m using in case I ever have to recall any of those. And of course, none of this is just an excuse to mess around with my synth. No siree Bob. Not a chance.
