Vocoded voice is a sample of the movie “fantastic planet”, run trough the free VST “VocoV II” vocoder. Using it’s built in carrier waves to generate the chords (these are the same chords as the main parts).
The last part is a sample captured with a line-in device, straight from a Russian short animation on Youtube called “There will come soft rains” (you can watch it on youtube), with simply a crossfade added within Renoise, and a lot of delay. The original sample is a deep Russian robot-voice, so it’s easy to create something creepy sounding out of that.
I use Renoise’s crossfade sample effect a lot, you can also hear a crossfaded breakbeat alongside the main riff if you listen carefully. It adds to the whole rithym.
The main lead is the free VST called “Oddy Free”, a recreation of the “Arp Oddyssey”. I actually like this free version better than G-Media’s 100$ plug in, it has a lot more gritty feel to it.
Then i added a lot of delay, EQ, filter etc…, but the main thing that will make any instrument sound like Boards of Canada is the free vst called “Wow and Flutter”. I use it all the time to give my synths that bit of “volnurability”.
The free fishfillets package of VST’s is also a must, especially “floorfish” on an old drumloop.
Am i giving away too much?
Thank you for the comments, and for listening!
p.s. i ran into a bit of luck with the ending, the sample of the weird robotic voice ends exactly at the point where the synths end, at the very end of the song. It even does this “swoosh” thing. Completely unintended, but very welcome
p.p.s. i stayed up untill 4am last night to finish mastering and uploading, my English seems to have abandoned me due to lack of sleep. So i’m sorry for the many mistakes.
