So I can’t remember whether there was a dedicated thread for signal follower tricks, I remember Bitesmasher doing a simple sidechained compressor demo. I’d like to get a bit of a dialogue going here, if possible.
Here’s one to “!ScrAtcH-fUnkiffffaaaiiiieee!” your drums.
Let’s use the provided Apache loop on track 1.
Add: Gate => signal follower… whatever else you want
Now lets use the real drumkit.XRNI on track 2. do a pattern with lots of offbeats using bright snares and symbols etc…
Add: hydra => a ring mod => another ring mod => a slightly resonant lowpass (or highpass) filter
set up the track1 signal follower to control track2 hydra. the hydra should control the frequencies of the ring mods and the filter cutoff.
Try setting the maximum and minimum for the ring mods such that one is the inverse of the other. give everything a bit of inertia also.
You’ll have to do a bit of tweaking of the signal follower sensitivity aswell as the maximum and minimum frequencies to get the desired effect.
Everything going to plan it should magically sound (kinda) like someone is scratching along to the beat. It will also sound like you’re really good at renoise!
[center] kickofighto dude I’d LOVE to hear an example of this. Definitly will try this myself when I get home (I’m at work sad cry’s for me lol) altho I’m a bit of a turnablist at heart and love scratching my own shit but hey i get lazy too haha! Anyway man thanks alot for this thread and yeah looking forward to an upload example!
I seem to recall a demo in a older version of renoise that emulated scratching effect. In the demo it was used on a spoken word recording. I think it was 1,9 if im not mistaken. Anybody else remember that? It sounded quite good to my ear.
It is the best thing about new renoise in my opinion. I look forward to you article. The example posted by TiiVi is far more effective a demo than mine is.
Hers’s another little toy to play with in the mean-time using also the XY devices. resynthesizing-beats.xrns
Hey TiiVi! I made a little edit of your scratchzzzzzz demo. In this one there is a bass track controlled by the signal followers also. Also a simple formant on top!
I hope this is ok for me to do… Tell me if not and I’ll take it down. scratchouille_Bass_edit.xrns
Please do! SF > eq is also pretty handy if you set the SF filters appropriately and if you don’t want compression…
Also… if you feel like applying your mastering skills to anything here…
It’s not like I own any monitors…
