It started as a small patch to explore a mixing LFOs and sampling the result at different rate to create two different but related voices.
A couple happy accidents along the way brought me to something I quite liked so I fleshed it out a bit and that's the result of it. It's been a while I didn't use the multi FX reverb but I have to say I really like how it sounds, sure it's a bit noisy but it sounds really wide and rich.
Most of the sounds are out of my AE system, with a dash of granular processing done on a ZOIA pedal as a send FX and some light compression and EQ to mesh it together.
(the bottom right is how it would look like in a oscilloscope, I didn't have the time to get actual output data from my system but that should give you an idea of how things work)
You can of course use other triggers than an LFO for the sample and hold (MM-DIV is quite nice for that if you want something with more structure, or a looping envelope with attack decay modulated if you're doing more of a krell patch).
Edit: I plan to post something like this in here but I didn't get around to actually record audio / video for it yet.
Magnifique! Really dig those opening twinklies, is that a word?, and the gentle washing lows. Very, ery nice. Stellar job.
Thanks I'm glad you liked it 😊 Yes this twinkling sound is what sold me on this particular recording. It's not a word, just the patch on ZOIA doing some magic 😁 It doing something similar as cloud would do (can't wait for my cirrus module to arrive 😉) just with a longer buffer and longer grains. It's a fun idea though and something I should try to add in the future (I've being thinking about using a vocoder lately to make an interesting pad sound so that might be an occasion to try it out).
