So, I'm back, one week late to Novembeat. Not sure when I'll catch up, but I will. 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.

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 , 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 , I tried new effects. I don't think it sounds "angular" at all, but at least it's different from yesterday.

For , 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 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.

Just encountered what is probably the best logo ever. It took me a few seconds to get it. Hint: transportable toilets.

MOD rig addition for : 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 . 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.
