Short links for September 15th, 2010

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Everything is a Remix, Part 1 : Everything Is a Remix

Check Songs Used in Everything is a Remix Part 1 for details.

# Dan303: FREE Samples: “Synth Strings”

Dan is back with a new free sample pack featuring 4 different synth string sounds in .wav format:

Each string sound was had crafted using the Korg R3 synthesizer and each sound is played in a verity of chords.
The Chords are clearly labeled and ready for your compositions.

# cl516: Six Delays in September

Calvin Cardioid posted a lovely video on his ditto blog.

There's a little bit of variety here, ranging from such sounds as the simple Boss DD-3, to the heavier thick tone of the Moog MF104SD, to the craziness of the Eowave Spacebug, and even to the crispy digital artifact sounding OTO Biscuit. Throughout the video, I'm just playing common synth patches in mono with one hand, while the other tweaks the pedals.

Gotta love delays!

Sonic Terrain

# Sonic Terrain

A new blog dedicated to field recording:

Welcome to Sonic Terrain, your source for sounds in the field! Today we are very glad to start with this adventure and we hope you like it as we do. There’s no other reason for this rather than the community and the passion for recording sounds from the world.

What is Sonic Terrain?

In the last few years, social media and blogs have changed the way we interact and learn from other people over the world. This has been especially true in the world of professional sound and audio production/post-production, where a recent proliferation of blogs, websites, and online communities have allowed both emerging talent and established professionals to interact, share, and collaborate with one another.

Sonic Terrain is the brainchild of Miguel Isaza, was co-founded by he and Nathan Moody, and enjoys the deep support and involvement of Colin Hart. You can also find very enjoyable stories from our pro contributors Michael Raphael and Charles Maynes.

# Sound Interjection, Yuri Suzuki

From Pixelsumo:

Last week Yuri Suzuki had his first major show open in London (KK Outlet) until the end of September. Featuring some old works and new ones, each giving a playful physical interaction with sound, such as…

“Colour Chaser detects and follows black line whilst it reads the colour and translate the colour RGB data into sound.”

# Pd & Max/MSP Externals – Beta 7

Tom Erbe at Soundhack writes:

We have just released the first complete version of the SoundHack externals for PD & Max. These externals replicate most of the SoundHack plugins and are offered free of charge.

Included in this collection are externals for amplitude shaping and distortion (+compand~, +chebyshev~ & +decimate~), single-head, multi-head, pitchshifting and granular delays (+delay~, +pitchdelay~, +bubbler~), and the spectral shapers, a set of spectral filters and dynamics processors (+binaural~, +morphfilter~, +spectralcompand~ & +spectralgate~).

Studio BEA-5

# Somewhat Ahead Of Their Time…

From Analog Industries:

In 1952, Phillips Industries, those zany Dutchfolk that bring us fancy new TVs and lightbulbs every now and again, saw fit to make an electronic music studio in their main R&D facility in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This studio, which was moved to the University Of Utrecht in 1960 as part of their new Sonology Studio, and again in 1972 to the Royal Conservatory Of Music (as pictured above), still exists today as Studio BEA-5 at the Institute Of Sonology, with most of the gear in that top image still in daily use.

# Checking drum tracks for phase issues

Good advice from Audio Geek Zine:

When working with a multi-miked drumkit recording you need to be aware of phase issues and how to correct them. Recognizing the phase issues will take some practice but if you go step by step you should have no problems.
