I'm loving Collision...not quite got my head round Corpus in terms of practical use yet, would also love to hear/see some stuff on it.

Collision is so instantly tweakable. I enjoy the way you can mind map to it, so you visualise an object, say a block of vinyl of a certain dimension and the item you are going to hit it with, then dial in the settings and it delivers the sound, so easy (in conjunction with a good read of the manual)

As a little test I tried to recreate the Blue Man group drumming on a pipe sequence...took about five minutes.

Basic stuff i know, but I'm getting there! :D

Forgot to ask, what exactly are you doing with it, can you talk us through some examples?

also loving corpus, more than collison acually, Its nice to lay over sounds, it seems to give them a quite wonderful ambience when used sparingly.

Just like a resonator overtone kind of thing you mean?

yeah but it gives very subtle harmonics, and can make synths sound a bit more organic in my opinion. like they are almost real instruments

sure

I'll try and knock something together later on when I get a minute

but to try and summarise - yeah I'm using it a lot like an advanced resonator plugin

I've been putting it on recordings from my Macbook internal mic, like telly in the back ground or me saying something or doing some kind of rhythmic sound

if you put it on "pipe" then set opening to a small amount and play about with 'tune' and 'decay' then you can create some interesting sounds

similarly, setting to 'string' and setting to "basic" or "few"

but if you then set the LFO to Saw Up with phase at 180° then you can get that kind of eternally rising effect (a bit like Tom Cosm's shepherd tone) - kind of cool for building up

haven't really got time to go into it more at the moment, but I'll try and do a capture later

If you stick it before or after a delay and set the resonator to "tube" you can get close to the sound of a "Cooper Time Cube" which is a mechanical delay from the seventies (rolled up garden hose with a Shure driver on one end and a microphone on the other) The original Cooper did 14 & 16ms delay L-R, going a bit longer say 20-23 ms makes for an excellent static doubler, the tube resonance just makes it sit really nice in the mix don't ask why it just does.
