Waldorf Largo – Dolphin Jump Gate

image

I’m very excited to start working with Waldorf Largo! It's shares 98% of it's architecture with Blofeld so it's been great experience to work with the architecture in soft synth form. I’ve actually created quite a few patches and thought I’d share one of my more crazy atmospheric patches called “Dolphin Jump Gate” as it shows off the awesome comb filter and FM  on the Largo.

I have the filters setup in “Serial” mode. Filter 1 is a comb filter which colors the sound and Filter 2 is low pass to control brightness.

Modulate Notes:

  • Velocity controls Filter 2’s envelope velocity. Since filter 2 is set to a high-pass filter there more velocity you play with the brighter the overall sound.
  • Mod Wheel controls intensity of LFO1 which modulates Cutoff for Filter 1. Sweeping modulation cause a shearing effect. Mod Wheel also modulates Filter 1 panning.

Try playing some chords to create sub-harmonic “beating” effect. Turn the FM paramer up for Oscillator 3 to get even more sparkle.

Your Modulate This Holiday Gift is Ready – “Sounds From a Distant Outpost” Ableton Live Pack Plus Samples

Soundsfromadistantoutpost_blog_banner_02

 Update: I'm updating this soundset so it is currenlty offline.

I'm very excited to announce that your FREE holiday gift is now ready for download! It is an Ableton Live Pack called Sounds from a Distant Outpost.

Sounds From a Distant Outpost is more than a sample sound library. Over 30 hours in the making, it is a set of 12 deep and expressive instrument racks that will transport you to a dark and distant outpost. From here you will be able to explore the sounds, machines, and creatures of this world.  These instruments will help spark your imagination and I hope inspire you to create your own soundtrack for this world. Of course, the instruments will also help add an interesting "edge" to any sound or music project.

 

The  source audio is made up of some of my field recordings as well  as original synthesized and re-synthesis harmonic content.  The concept for the instruments was based on a back-story I created as the project progressed. Fueled by the story and setting, I translated these source samples into Ableton Live racks and meticulously programmed them to create playable dynamic instruments which are placed under your command via macro parameters, velocity, after touch, and modulation wheel mappings. I've also provided the original source samples for the project so those who don't have Ableton Live will be able to use these samples as oscillator sources in synths like Absynth, Alchemy, ElectraX and Blofeld.

This project is also a social experiment. Rather than just provide a Live Pack, I've created a dedicated social microsite so you can share your notes and work with the library. I’ve also offered a SoundCloud drop box so you can share your original sound or music compositions.

I've had a great time creating – to coin a phrase – this  "story-based sound design with social remix" experiment.

I hope you enjoy your gift. I'm looking forward to your notes and creations.

As always, thanks your support. Have a happy, safe holiday filled with electronic music!
