Slice one potato into thin slices and lay at the bottom of a pot that has been glazed with butter and let it cook a little. Turn over potatoes and cook until golden.

Lay a single layer of stew on top of potatoes and one layer of rice. Repeat until stew and rice are finished.
Add saffron boiled and cooled overnight.

Simmer for one hour.

Serious ethnic meal from back home.

Oh, and sample every stage with one sdc and one overhead ldc (you see how cleverly I brought this back on topic, huh, huh?).




I am doing somewhat similar to rice noodles in tomyum sauce with auricula mushroom and Roland R-09. This might not give me a sizzling sample of frying onion, but it still taste damn nice.

Note: Check the point where the description for time stretching pops in. I loved this almost analog like stretch. It immediately reminded me of 'Green and blue patterns are falling all over me like a deck of card' from -- 'Long long arms' by Simon Posford.

Camel Audio’s Alchemy is indeed a potent synth with vast possibilities 8-)

I’ve been working with it for over a year now, and am still discovering lots of new possibilities!

Hi Martin, you are godsend. You can for sure assist me with few ideas on its workflow, maybe few tips or tricks. These days I am a compulsive ab-user of Massive, and would love to cook something out of Alchemy juxtaposed to Massive.

Sad that I noticed this so late.
Anyways, thanx ZoeB, that was interesting (aerosol can).
Other such tricks from your far too many years of hard recording can be golden for this thread.
Please contribute more.

A gent on another forum used Berna http://www.gleetchplug.com/gleetchplug/berna.html for an album recreating a

"simulation of a late 1950s electroacoustic music studio. Oscillators, filters, modulators, tape recorders, mixers ...
Serial, concrete and tape music ... with instruments inspired by the greatest studios of the early days of electronic music."

I think anything that makes a sound is useable. I use the recorder built into my £26 Ricoh R3 camera though it does need a wind jammer !

Our purpose/s is are unique to us, just as meaning/s of our life is unique to us. These change throughout our life.

Thus should be obvious there is no universal purpose, universal meaning of life.

Sad that Berna had to be MAC only.

Hi tft!

Diego also features heavily in my thread entitled 'Daily Inspiration for the Sound Designer':

www.soundonsound.com/forum/showflat.php ... ber=840157

As well as the Behance web site (which is admittedly easier to navigate) you can find his own here:

Well worth a visit!

In this months issue's 'reader's music reviewed' section there was one that is truly remarkable. Although the praises for this album has already been published, so I'll present my observation.

Image

Mira by Jienat is released on blu-ray, hence dont assume it to be cheap, but it isnt overtly expensive though, which it should have been.

I assume someone had already posted this kind of post somewhere in the forum. I read the review and checked the video of the making of 'Mira', which I believe must be referred in this thread because Jienat's acumen in recording audio are truly remarkable. there was everything from ethnic world music sounds to dog barks to Bow saw cutter played with a bow (by the way that's not an innovation, I've known few who did that, here is a video on how to do it yourself). Overall I loved the whole video and the sounds produced with some real innovative skills.

In Hinduism Mira is one of the most ardent lover of Lord Krishna, I did not know what it may imply to in Norwegian language though. Maybe Jienat had some fascination with Omicron Ceti, the giant red star, which appears on the album quite loud. Maybe its mysterious appearance in one of the episode of Star Trek had driven him to find the title (I, for sure, doubted that). But then finally I read (in jienat.com) this note under the song with the same title -- "Mira is a young bitch from Karasjóhka. She was first encountered one day in 2007 when she was a puppy. Her owner, Anders Nils Utsi, was working with his reindeer herd; Mira was hanging out by Route 889. She had not yet fully grasped the concept that dogs should only chase cars, not try to catch them. She survived, quit catching cars, grew up, and now she has her own title track. Imagine that."

And then I understood why that giant red star stirs the curiosity. It truly is Omicron Ceti.

Wow!!!

What a massive album. I never trusted plastic money, but now first thing I'll do is to get one in order to buy this album.

Apparently, you can get a pleasing kick drum type "thud" by slapping an engorged body part against a fully inflated airbed (i.e. the type you would take to festivals).

Not that I've ever tried this myself, of course....an eccentric friend told me about it :-)

I dont know why I'm posting this here. I found it weird and at the same time very interesting and very innovative. Couldnt find an appropriate thread for something like this.

Disturbing call of a Blackbird.

I think that subtle reverb in the final track is not the original one, but I'm not sure.

'audio.tutsplus' is a very neat site. Yesterday I found this very interesting tutorial - How to transform vocal samples into percussion effects..
