Hello. Recently, CDP tool’s creator afta8 posted a brand new tool: Offline Filter. It’s a niffty little tool that offers 4 different filter types, built-in cutoff envelope controls and 2 great sounding distortions. It works offline which means a different (and cool) workflow for mangling sounds. As in working with CDP. Definitely give it a try if you’re a Renoise user. And thanks afta8 for another smasher!
Hi. Welcome back to another Exploring Sounds tutorial. This week’s post will feature a plugin bundle that I’ve started using recently, Melda Production’s MFreeEffectsBundle. It’s a great freebie package offering tons of different effects. Some of them are your usual phasers and flangers but there is also some rarer stuff in there such as a frequency shifter or a noise generator. The only downsides for me are the slightly odd interfaces and the huge installer. Which is nothing compared to what you get for free, really. I’ve barely explored the possibilites yet with so many plugins and options but that didn’t stop me from making a sound design post with them.
So enough chatter already, let’s jump in. The sound we’ll be mangling is a wind instrument (Flute? I can never tell.) sampled from an old record.
