Bunjil’s Journey - Soaring
This patch grew out of my recent Twitch streams. Marbles (random sampler) is at the heart, with Plaits and Blamsoft’s VK-1 Viking as the main voices


(Paul Piko) #3

A simple but effective patch, with Marbles driving EV3 and lots of reverb courtesy of Plateau.


(Lars Bjerregaard) #4

Indeed wonderfully simple and effective Paul, using just three great modules. I love it! I can listen to this in a loop for hours.


(Paul Piko) #5

Thanks Lars. It’s a great trio of modules.

For comparison, I switched out Plateau for Valhalla Shimmer. Both have aspects I like.


(Lars Bjerregaard) #6

That one sounds great as well. They’re diffferent… The Valhalla version sounds cleaner; less “muddy”. But their tone is different; I might actually prefer the tone of Plateau, after a casual listen. But they’re both great. The Valhalla is quite expensive, no?


(Paul Piko) #7

Yes, I think both could have their place as part of a larger piece. Especially with some knob twiddling.

Shimmer Is $50. So Plateau wins on price :wink:

@LarsBjerregaard They’re very different beasts.

Plateau is a plate reverb on steroids; Shimmer is a feedback delay network & pitch shifter (as I understand it anyway).

But, I’m sure you know that :slight_smile:

There’s a bit of an explanation of Shimmer here:

Thanks to all who dropped by during the Twitch stream today, and chatted.

Here’s the track that I made from it.

This is the track that came out of today’s ambient stream on Twitch.

Nice piece Paul. Just… Maybe the reverb takes to much place to my taste… I find it too “earable” by itself. Anyway … Again it’s a nice piece of music.
Thanks for sharing.
