Trashing river sounds
Firstly, this gets very harsh and loud at about 37 seconds, mind your levels. All sounds are processed versions of this recording by corsica-s
I originally intended to process different river sounds from freesound and mix them together, but there were just too many and settled on this one for no particular reason other than it was a good clean recording. First thing to do is amplify it to death with hardlimiting at almost 100% clipping. Then I filtered all that noise out with the positive contrast effect in dtblkfx (usually I use that to create drones which was my original idea, but changed my mind) and then processed it with the LFOs in the pre-filter module of Trash to create rhythms. I did about five or six variations of this, cut them up, roughly arranged them and applied more distortion and amp models to get that guitar sound. There's also a drone like sound which I kept in there too and a few other Trashy manipulations. I'll probably upload some individual tracks to freesound for those who might be interested and who can do this mixing/musical thing better than I. I'm pretty crap at it I admit, but mainly I just love to change sounds into other sounds.
Also. This is the third version of this, if you think this is bad, you should hear the others. Maybe I'll upload them or continue to evolve this one. Generally though I get bored with using the same sound, even though it's all just waves in the end.
Download if you wish. I wouldn't, I think it sucks.
