Full Download:Full download includes: 300 x 44.1kHz 24-bit Wav loops, 300 x Rex2 loops and 300 x Apple Loops plus information booklet. All loops tempo labeled.
The fourth title in Ian Boddy's Waveforms series is a follow up to the best-selling Drumalogue, using raw analogue one-shot drums to build 300 all-new twsted beats, fed through Boddy's massive modular synth system.
These are then filtered, mangled and messed up using a huge number of modules all in the analogue domain.
All loops are offered with between 3 and 5 variations and sonically range from sweet filtering all the way through to completely crunched and twisted mayhem.
The quality of the distortion and overdrive achieved using these techniques gives the loops a gorgeous organic feel which is further heightened by the sound of the modular itself with it's fuzzy warmness and tripping envelopes.
All tempo-labeled loops are offered as 24-bit Wavs, as well as Rex2 loops and Apple Loops for full cross-platform compatibility.
The following analogue synthesisers were used (but not hurt) during the making of this collection:
- Roland System 100-M
- Analogue Systems
- Doepfer A-100 modular system
- Analogue Solutions
Livewire AFG, Vulcan & Dalek Modulators
Metasonix TM-2 Tube BP filter & R-53
- Tube Waveshaper/Ring Mod
- Flight of Harmony Plague Bearer
- The Harvestman Malgorithm
- WMD Geiger Counter
- Make Noise QMMG
- Master tempo & auxillary voltage control provided by MOTU Volta via MOTU 828 interface.
Sounds were recorded using a TLAudio Ebony A2 tube stereo processor into an Apple Mac using the RME Fireface 400 audio interface.
