Liquidmind's Recordings

(SG Mikaelsson) #1

I will probably keep all my personal music to a single post and update as I create new tracks to share.

Today, I will start with my recent experimentation with Animated Circuits plugins. Had such fun with these. The oscillators especially have some incredibly interesting sound abilities. Please enjoy. <3

Just a short snippet here from some tuning experiment. Hoping to capture this vibe and patch something bigger with it down the line.

Didn’t even take long. I expanded upon the idea, and wrote my own .scl tuning files [very easy]. This time came around with something quite ominous. I like these two tunings, and hope to use them more often.

Today I’ve been fiddling about, trying to figure out some sensical way to use the gamepad feature in the MIDI modules. In this, I have the sticks controlling overall volume [with Rampage doing some enveloping], panning and vibrato. I have LT on filter cutoff and RT on resonance [and drive to offset the volume drop].

The Bogaudio noisegate was really helpful in giving me a bit of a soft cutoff near the bottom of the sticks’ range. They were far too sensitive, otherwise. You can’t really notice they are there. But you would absolutely know if they weren’t.

The quad panner from Nysthi was helpful in visualising where my sticks were. Not needed, but especially helpful to make sure the noisegates had them locked back in.

Attenuverters were helpful for inverting the Y-vector of the sticks. They default to Negative-Y being Positive-CV, which I found odd, but easy workaround.

I hope to give this a more in depth go on a grander track at some point.

After a big bit of inspiration from Omri [as seems to be common], I spent a few hours getting this patch together. It’s unfortunately just over the limit of what my machine can handle to play, and recording it gave me so much hassle. This is one decent performance I managed to squeeze out of it. The SoftSN is doing a lot of glitchy background stuff, and splashes of off key notes.

Another long awaited track from your favourite Liquidmind. :grin:

This was heavy on the CPU just as the last one. XFX Wave the primary culprit. But the sounds you can get out of it can be so worth it. Managed to record through the stuttering and nonsense, and got something out that I’m pretty pleased with. Something laid back and chill.

Here I went for a very strange, even to me, 7:9 polyrhythmic idea. It’s a little bit chill, but somehow doesn’t quite sit right for most of it. I dig it and I don’t, but had fun putting it together.

My past few weeks with Rack have been particularly full of inspiration and energy. Making a lot more than usual, similar to when I first picked it up all the way back near the beginning.
Today I came out with this:

Finally got round to using the new ZZC stuff for a short piece, and I still have no idea what most of it is truly capable of. This came about just by plugging things into stuff and hoping something worked, and it turned out it makes some interesting sounds indeed! A lot of modulations, and the VCAs are to die for. They actually shape the sound in an interesting way.
