Lost at Sea



A bit gentler on the ears, just a repeating phrase with only minor variations. All sounds made with VirSyn Poseidon. Public domain as usual.

Trashy Poseidon

Archive.org seems to be down, Bandcamp upload instead (free as usual and public domain, ignore bandcamp license). Gets progressively louder and more distorted from about 01:40 onwards. Mind your ears. Download

Loud Woman in Theatre


Download if you wish.

Okay, it's hardly anything genius, just a noise drone, but I like something about it. Good for annoying the neighbours I suppose. I had real problems with the low end (and the whole spectrum really); really boomy at 90-100Hz, so it's been eq'd and compressed/gated quite a lot. Lots of defects all over.

As is usual when doing this stuff, I had other ideas for it after it was finished, but in a mood because I wasn't really satified with it I deleted the original project files in haste. Still, I can start afresh, which is usually better in my opinion.

It is a heavily processed version of this sound by freesound user Klankbeeld, cheers Klank. I chose it specifically because of its quietness (I wondered, what's in there?) and partly because of the sample's title, which I liked and that inspired me to make it a loud woman in a noisy theatre. Which is which is anyone's guess. Only four differently processed tracks of the original sound comprise whole thing.

Processing: quite simple. Severe hardlimiting in Cool Edit over 90% clipped. Positive contrast with dtblkfx (yep, the fucking best free software ever written. GRM Contrast Sucks in comparison). Distortion from Trash. Reverb from Reflect. And post with Ozone 4. I'll refrain from using the word "mastered" with Ozone 4, as I'm far from that level of expertise.
