Bright 2010 by teetow published on 2010/07/07 23:44:24 +0000 Another victim of the 2005 hard drive crash, resurrected with the help of Insider, who used to run our Candela BBS back in the 90's. Props, dude. This was a particularly fun project to do, since it involved recovering some fairly obscure voice samples. First of all, I bounced 40 stems (one per instrument) from the original XM file, which were then montaged and timesynced in Cubase. For some weird reason, the BPM was 138.080. I then started swapping out some of the most horribly resampled sounds, while giving others some facelifts (trivia: apart from hihats, the drums are all the original samples). I then dug up a YouTube video of the McEnroe rant, did some polishing in Audition, and then went on the abandonware hunt for the Bioforge sample. The samples for the game were all stored in a gigantic 30-minute file, and to top it all off the phrase "This is not an experiment, this is a demonstration" was not actually in the game -- I had apparently edited it together from other phrases. 10 minutes in Vegas later, and Bob's your uncle.
