Sound-A-Day

SOUNDS 7_11_2009

07.11.09 | Comment?

I’m not going to give up this sound-a-day thing, even if it turns out to be more like sound-a-week. I just recently installed Live 8 Suite, so I finally have access to all the cool Ableton instruments in addition to my weapons of choice, Simpler and Sampler. Years after it was released, I’m finally getting around to playing with Operator. Here are three Operator patches, all similar, all playing the same little riff.

The first is more-or-less dry.

The second has two effect channels, one auto-filtered and delayed, the other dry.

This third one has the auto-filter-and-delay on the upper frequencies, while the lower frequencies have an LFO (offset in phase to the upper-frequency channel filter’s LFO) to sort of fill in the gaps, plus a tight and subtle delay to smooth it out. Probably overkill, but…you know how these things go.

Not the greatest patch ever, but I should mention that if you’re new to the blog and you want this patch, or any of the others here or even just the aiffs to drop into whatever gear you use, please don’t be shy. My email address is at the bottom left and I’m usually pretty good about Twitter. As always–thanks for listening.
