first I have to clarify: that’s not my site! 😳
Xploding Plastix are imo currently one of the best eletronic acts and their
latest album received last year the grammy for ‘best electronic album’ 😉
Ahh, my bad. Yeah they’re pretty good!
– this is one of my tunes I did with Sonar. For the drums I only used loops – what sounds like a guitar is a highly played bass-guitar – listen to the break which starts at about 1:30 – the bass-guitar which fades in again in the background sounds totally weird – that’s another time-stretching artifact 8)
Most interesting indeed. Definitely some creative possibilities with this time stretching business! Thanks for these nice examples!
Damn jens, that’s the best looking site I’ve ever seen!
Well I stand TOTALLY corrected! That’s some extremely cool drumwork. Still falls in the “electronic” category, but definitely not techno.
Very very cool. So you did those drums with time stretching? I’d like to see how to do that.
I do deep house, and in house we in most cases use drum samples of real drums, and just re-EQ them so they thump on the dancefloor better. Most of the instrumentation is either samples of real instruments or actual real instruments, so I gotta say I’m totally unaccostumed to using cool electronic tricks, even though I know house gets lumped into the “electronic” category.
I need to know more about these cool possibilities!
Anyhoo, thanks for the example, jens!
Ahh you know what jens, that makes a lot of sense. I failed to take into consideration that time-stretching sound artifacts could be used as a creative tool. Leave it to the techno guys! heheh
That’s cool, my question is answered.
Very informative, sp3ed!
What I’m most curious about is I guess what sort of MUSICAL things would you be doing with a feature like that? I know Live and Acid have this real-time stretching business, but every song I’ve heard made with time stretching active…the time-stretched parts sound like garbage (like a low-quality stretch algorythm). So what I’m asking is, why would you want real-time stretching instead of doing your tempo corrections offline with a high-quality algorhythm?
You know I read EVERYWHERE, on all the msg boards and everything, people always want time stretching. What IS time stretching, and why is it useful?
If it’s simply changing the tempo of an audio file while maintaining the pitch (or vice versa), wouldn’t the quality of one built into a sequencer be not high enough for professional use? What I mean is, when I’m, say, remixing an R&B track into a house track, original being 80 bpm and dance version being 124 bpm, the only program I can really use on the acapella is ProSoniq TimeFactory…anything else leaves too many noticeable artifacts to be actually used. And the main reason TimeFactory is so good is because it does the processing offline (since it uses so much horsepower).
Anyways I must be missing something since there are sequencers that do have it built in. Somebody let me know.
AWESOME! Thanks Frits.
Yep that’s what I’ve been doing up till now. What I’m most concerned with is the Ctrl+Shift+Click funtionality, which is not implemented.
Clicking on one thing, then shift-clicking on another object 10 units away will select everything between the two objects. Then when you control click later on, it adds that selection to the existing selection. THEN if you control+shift+click a few objects away from that, you will get ANOTHER range, added to the first range you selected previously.
That’s the kind of multiple selection functionality I was looking for. That is Windows standard, but I’ve noticed a lot of people never knew it existed.
And what the HELL is wrong with LinPlug’s RM IV drum machine? When I brought it into Podium it exposed 4300 VST parameters. That’s insane. I give up trying to organize them heheheh.
I would definitely enjoy being able to import Cubase scripts, as my entire studio is already configured in that format.
Ahh okay I’m with you know. Thanks.
to quote. just click on on the ‘quote’ button in the top right of someones post, should do it
Nice, Sardaukar! Heheh.
Ah. Well when you put it that way, there are some advantages.
You mention that Podium offers you to choice of using library presets or plugin-suppled factory presets (I really have to learn how to use quoting on phpbb). 99% of the time I only use factory presets. Are you saying there’s a quick way for Podium to recall those settings when you come back to the arrangement later? Because that’s what I mean, Podium is not retaining the basic settings like which patch I selected for my Minimoog plugin. I don’t care about the positions of the every little parameter and knob, I just want it to remember the patch I was on.
Hmm. I GUESS I could do it that way. All I’m saying is I want the song to open the exact way it was when I closed it, without me having to make sure every VST synth I may load, I’ve pressed a Sync button and created a preset. I mean, the plugin already HAS its own presets, why do I have to make a second set?
Maybe I just don’t understand the concept properly. What is the value of me saving so-called “library presets” for my VSTi’s?
Yeah Duncan you understood what I meant, but like Frits said it doesn’t already happen unless you explicitly use library presets. Otherwise’s the plugin’s state is lost on reload.
Blast of white noise every 60 seconds. Bounce function not available. All other functions enabled. It’s been done elsewhere and is pretty much everything the user needs to see if they like the program, while being just annoying enough to prompt them to buy.
