Machine Elves by Spite Zoo published on 2013/01/05 19:57:53 +0000 Hi all - this track is largely based around the Intellijel Planar vector joystick - most of the morphing of the various sounds is done using that. other modules used were the cyclebox, DPO and Echophon. The main melody lines were developed by trying sequence parts to follow the randomly-modulated Echophon Pitch Shifting that had been applied to one of the DPO channels. i then used a noise gate to gel both of the parts together, with one gating the other. filters were the z2040, Blue Lantern Diode filter and the Borg2, and the Cyclebox went through both the a199 spring reverb and Sound of Shadows delay the crux of it all is the Planar though - i basically shoved 4 completely different signal paths into all its 4 inputs and mixed between them, while simultaneouly controlling various parameters on the modules themselves. i also did it the other way round, inputting one sound source and sending it down 4 different signal paths, depending on where the joystick was. cool beans!
