new upload: Forever Floating

The sample of a Horn player hitting the bell of his instrument transformed into a strange texture with Metasynth is used in Channel A in Granula mode, processed by a LPF Filter, it's Feedback modulated by a Ringmodulator. Determine the sample speed with Macro 2, control the LPF Cutoff with Macro 5 and Filter Feedback/Resonance with Macro 6. Channel B plays a synthetic wave made from another imported Metasynth sample, processed by a Bandpass filter and a Frequency Shifter. Control the Bandpass Resonance with Macro 7 and the pitch of the Freq Shifter with Macro 8. Both Channels have their Volumes assigned to a Macro (3+4). A Notch and a Cloudfilter in the Master section add more flavour to the sound, control the Cloudfilter's Balance with the Modwheel. The speed of all active LFOs is controllable with Macro 1. The Aetherizer in the FX section can be tweaked with Macros 9-12. Please check the envelope and LFO page for further modulation sources and targets.

  1. Hi Simon,

    I've been away from NI forums lately, and just caught up with your new site (and the new GREAT design!). It is so wonderful that you're pursuing this commitment to fine sound sculpture with our dear friend Abbie. I'm so deeply in support of your efforts that I signed up without even bothering to listen to any of the samples. OK, I'm a sucker for new Ab patches, but still, $US28 buys me four good meals, so it's more an indicator of my enthusiasm than of my gullibility...

    Anyway, my compliments on the new Ab-Style site design (and kudos to Simon Fields, of course), and all gratitude for your persistent creativity in this wonderful field of sound sculpture.

  2. Hi Allen,
    Thank's so much for your support. Absynth remains to be one of my sound design obsessions, so welcome on board. I bet you won't regret spending 4-good-meals-worth of money on my sounds. They can feed you in a different way :)
