Sat May 30, 5: Create a midi track or audio with a kik or other sound playing the pulse rhythm you like — be it four on the floor or other. Go to the Music Track you want to process, the pad, for example, and place a compressor — “Not forgetting to activate the side chain button, Mr. Crusher,” said Picard — as an insert, or, just use the channel strip compressor and press the SC button. BTW, the envelop shaper on the strip also has SC. Return to Rhythm Track and go to the Track Inspector and send the track to the Side Chain rather than to Stereo Out, or, you can do it with the Direct Routing Tab on the inspector depending on version.
ASR 10/ASR X emulation
The Kurzweils always pop up for me after a while, keep coming back reading about them.. But man, its such a hassle to get a overview about it. So many versions, really confused what to look after.
Sampling with V. Again, the FZ was such an Eyeopener for me when it comes to sound synthesis in the purest form. Its not about the synths you own, you can have one sampler and lets say a MS20 and can make such unique Sounds with it.
Sorry I’m drifting off again, but yes, I think I’m set getting another oldschool sampler.. Ofc one could do it all with the PC but I like the feeling of putting time into something and saving it on a floppy:: Heard alot about those Waveboy algos.
Can get some incredibly complex stuff going on. And if you get a DWAM board, connect a pc2 keyboard and edit, name, navigate, use shortcuts Also, if you run 4. Drop folders on the sd and make Presets. Now I want to buy another sampler, where I can go a bit deeper. Main use would be kind of sculpting own recordings and work from there. It also has a step modulator for modulating the synth, but better yet you can modulate fx parameters with it. It only has three encoders for fx, but you can switch to a second row with one button push, plus you can assign any fx parameter to them.
It is the most fully featured in terms of fx out f the SPs by far and shares the same board as the MV series. Terrible for sequencing, but perfect for resampling samples into effect madness. There was a video editing version called the A6, same machine basically with a hard drive instead of the noisy glitchy zip.
I imagine they are very hard to come by now. The samples are compressed , but sound fine, it is quite a transparent sampler, non of the so called mojo of the original sp for instance. Su is a very nice sampler too, colours samples in a good way with bit rate recording options.
A very fun matrix interface , with superb sounding digital filters. The best thing is all the groove options though. CF3 wrote: I suppose everybody has different ideas of what’s overpriced.
I think these are a great deal, considering what they are.. Meaning that it didn’t take somebody with special proprietary knowledge of a weird, ancient operating system to write them, and you could just as easily use a different VST for most of that stuff.
Having access to third-party effects for a sampler is pretty awesome. That’s the kind of shenanigans that I like to support- especially when the effects are as wacky as most of the Waveboy stuff.
I thought I got everything that Waveboy made for the ASR back in the late ’90s, but now I see a few ‘new’ things that must have come out after I bought my stuff. Guess I’ll be completing my collection the next time I make an order.. I’ve got an ASR and will never sell it. I find the workflow fine but it is a lot of menu diving, like most samplers I suppose.
The workflow cant be that bad at all. I lived up in Santa Maria, CA from like , met this blind guy named Daryll I think it was that lived in the apartments across the street from me.
That dude could move through his like it was nothing haha. He had the big keyboard version in his living room. Said he was going some work with Snoop Dogg at the time but I don’t know if that was true or not Monotremata wrote: Said he was going some work with Snoop Dogg at the time but I don’t know if that was true or not Don’t ever play Mortal Kombat with that guy either.
He kicked all of our asses at MK3 just by listening to game. Haha nice story, I guess compared to him we should fck off with weak excuses. I’m set on buying the ASR just damn hard to comeby one, even in Berlin.
It’s more distributed in the US area I reckon.. The sample will update in real time and ta daaaa manual granular synthesis! Here’s a short video of me doing just that On the downside it lacks standard copy and paste editing, and ping-pong looping, and the sample load times are super long. It seems like they always ave a major topic and then a lilttle algo extra here and there. The soniq demolition disk is also useful, but the granular synth one is a bit messy – too easy to get runaway feedback that turns into digital agony imho, alright if you like that sort of thing Ranxerox wrote: Is it rez filter that comes with the frequency shifter algo?
That one is good. Also, soniq demolition comes with granular, bit reducer and frequency shifter algorithms – definitely get this one. You have the whole spectra from nice piano and string sounds to really complex noisy modular drones right there at your fingertips. I’ve really got into the structure of older samplers and romplers Vs VAs. I just want to be able to layer sounds with their own modulation on top of each other. On the emu you can just keep layering stuff with amp fades, velocity switching, modulated cross-fade switching etc.

An article detailing how the ASR10 sampler can be used to add lo-fi grit multi- track USB audio interface allows any VST/AU/AAX/TDM/RTAS. The Ensoniq ASR was out for quite a long time before a successor came out . or should I get a VST sample-host or program like Kontakt or Reason or.
