Wicked video showing artifacts in Live's warping scheme

I did a little work-up on the list.
This little list took up almost 2 days to organize and I'm still not happy.

But I hope you are :wink:
All feedback is appreciated.

vinyl/granular style sample mashing with simpler.

Post by The Phat Conductor » Thu Oct 12, 2006 8:54 pm

ok, i was looking for a way to emulate vinyl style scratches using a vst, and i stumbled upon this simple technique which yields the sweetest of fruits.

http://www.thephatconductor.com/mashitPROPER.zip

1. make an audio track and set it to 'resample'
2. mute everything other than your drums
3. use session view to sample a one bar clip of your beat
4. load the sample into the simpler
5. make a loop, length 1%, fade all the way up
6. set the sample start to 50%
7. draw an automation ramp for the sample start. go from -50% to 50%
-you will now have simpler play your drum loop. sounds pretty normal, maybe a bit of flange...
8. create some patterns by messing with the sample start and transpose to create vinyl style stops, scratches and nasty granular timestretches.
9. sample these patterns, move them to arrange, and cut them up to make fills.

how much do you love me now?
