Dawn of the Scope!

Posted by Higen

Well.. long time.. you know.. i have been zoo busy updating my Facebook profile.. and hang out with virtual friends.. that i totally forgot this old school .. blog thingy..

Anyway.. small changes to studio setup.. i have started to move back to the scope platform again. This time i am using an external computer which does the scope work, while i am still using my iMac for logic (sequencer)

anyway the gear list is now:

* Crewamware Noah
* Novation Nova
* Waldorf Blofeld
* Emu e6400 Ultra
* MOTU 828mk2 (sound card)
* Korg ES-1
* Technics WSA1
* Akai MPD26 (midi drum pads)
* Some cheaper mic's
* PC computer running Windows 7 and Sonic-Core SCOPE 5.1 with 21 DSP.
* MAC G4 running OS 9 and Sonic-Core SCOPE 4 with 9 DSP.

For now i am using the SCOPE for mastering (with the excellent BRICKWALL limiter from DAS, together with the MasterIT EQ from DAS)

But also during production as a fx box where i use the SC-Plante (Sonic Timeworks).. Great stuff!
I hope that i can utilize it even more, by moving the ADAT i am using today for the Fostex converter and route it to the sonic-core giving me 8 in/out to the sonic-core <--> iMac.

Then i have to connect the last two synths into the creamware..

Anyway.. added a new track to the archive.. My Beauty.. i have 2 others. but they need proper naming and id3 tag before adding them.

Higen – Emotional Blender

Posted by Higen

Finaly i manage to finish up the track.. it took about 5 month.. not because i was out of inspiration.. or need to find my own soul or.. that i needed to touch the skies.. etc... nop.. it was a lack of time... 3 kids just steals your day!

Maria is doing the vocals, i am speaking some rubbish.. else its a housy track in 110 bpm.. using emu for beats together with ultrabeats (from logic).. pads are also emu.. virus and nova its also there..


Current progress (1005-01)

Posted by Higen

Well.. the track are progressing..

adding a short cut midways in the tracks to show the pace and flow.. using much emu, nova and virus together..
and some post process stuff in logic.

Some new stuff coming up

Posted by Higen

Well.. i haven't died or anything.. i have just been busy with other stuff.. anyway..
working on some new stuff... coming back to the sampling and all the fun it gives.

adding two mp3 files of different types of emu pads i am using in my current track

Marias Voice made as an pad on the emu (using regular 4-pole lowpass):

Novation Nova base sound, sampled down to the emu w/o filters and envelopes, then layred and filtered in the emu, using the 2EQ+Lowpass Morph filter:

Both are using the RFX-32 card for reverb and echo effects adding some depth to the sound..

Enjoy.. if you want the patches, mail me or drop a post.. you can get them as .e4b files

The track i am working on.. is a bit up tempo chillout i guess. 110bpm stuff...

Studio anno May 2010

AS an extra info: Psy-works.net is up AS an sampler cd Page for old samples. :)
