If only. It’s a rainy 17° here. I find Ice Tray very interesting but fairly unpredictable and somehow upfront and I’ve been struggling to make good use of it. But one preliminary outcome of this challenge challenging me: it’s super great for slow-mo ambient noodling with an external synth or via keyboard (like so, with my kinda new go-to oscillator). Screenshot for now. One granular Ice Tray with a very short recording time for glimmer FX, another one, filtered and cloudy, for gritty layers of the past…


Where I am the ice cubes fall from the sky.

Not sharing the project 'cause it’s too large (8Mb ?) I already emptied the cubes but nothing… Someone has the same experience?

edit: A 2 Mb file, the smallest I could get.

cabotage-ksm_vcp72.vcv (2.1 MB)


my try:

the patch is here (without the drum samples) :

my patch has a bit more than 7 mb, with 3 instances of ICE TRAY. no problem to upload at patchstorage.


Nice icy vibes. I think the file is saving the audio buffer. There’s no option to save only the project thing?

Currently there is not. But if people would find that useful I could look into adding a setting for that.
