So, I'm back, one week late to Novembeat. Not sure when I'll catch up, but I will. #novembeatday8 was supposed to evoke cats of some sort, but after lots of tries and silly effects it became something totally unrelated, and that's probably for the best.
#novembeat7 was indeed quite fuzzy, with a rather crazy MOD rig. I'm pretty sure I can make something much heavier and fuzzier, but it will require more experimentation.
For #novembeatday6, I used a very minimal MOD rig. I removed all effects and tried to get a clean signal to evoke something simple... maybe "small", even if the repetitive nature of the tune probably evokes something more mechanical than small.
On #novembeatday5, I tried new effects. I don't think it sounds "angular" at all, but at least it's different from yesterday.
For #novembeatday4, I replaced many components of my MOD rig for something a bit simpler and more efficient, and added some not-enormous-but-good-enough distortion. It's far from perfect, but this is getting closer to the aesthetics I've been wanting to explore for ages. I still have no idea what I'm doing... but I'm doing it better.
On #novembeatday3 I spent way too much time trying to find some effects to make it sound "spicy". I ended up ditching the delay and replacing it with a vibrato. I like how it sounds, though the tune is just a crappy improvisation.
MOD rig addition for #novembeatday2: a comb delay line with cubic spline interpolation. I've no idea what it means but it gave me a simple and efficient control over said delay. However, it messed up my gain and added noise, even bypassed, for a reason I don't understand. I'll probably try another delay next time I'll need one.
My Zynthian MOD rig for #novembeatday1. Basic stuff to get a cleaner sound and make the contact mic sound less percussive, a looper I didn't use, and a little bit of reverb because there's no such thing as too much reverb.
