Twisted way to use Effect Plugins or hardware

Hi there ,

I create this place for us to share tips about how to use effect in a twisted way, to create unique sounds.

I start first with convolution reverb , lot of us knows them but did you try to use it in a different way ?

here is the tip, just use a sample as an Imulse response that was not meant to be used this way.

For exemple you can test using a long screaming as an impulse response in IR1 or altiverb, and send something to feed it (insert or send ).

I let you discover what kind of sound you can obtain this way !

I let you share your twisted way to use FX here !

Have a nice day !

Re: Twisted way to use Effect Plugins or hardware

I've been using convolution for distortion emulation/resampling variations rather than reverb 'impulses' as come with FL studio. Very fun! (f*g)(T)=|f(t)g(T-t) dt, if you use math software you can play around with slashing formula modulators into the output function - make sure you have a limiter on..

Re: Twisted way to use Effect Plugins or hardware

I have a modified acoustic guitar..

on the headstock of this guitar I have mounted a high output/sensitivity speaker/voice coil.

driven by an amplifier that is being fed from the Aux Sends of my console

I tune every string the same (they are the highest string in a bass guitar set..6 of them)

, to the fundamental of whatever song I am recording. when a section in the song comes by that features that fundamental prominently, it excites the strings, makes the axial modes of the guitar body go crazy, and sounds a bit sitar-drone ish.. but much deeper. I then mic it up and record, mix to taste. sometimes I will send THAT sound back out to an amplifer or another speaker driver...mounted into a piano body , near the strings. interesting stuff

Re: Twisted way to use Effect Plugins or hardware

check out vimeo using the search "tonespace"
tonespace is a PHENOMENAL free plugin. really cool sounds

I also take found sounds/field recordings, open in melodyne, save as midi, and then use that midi file to trigger some VST instrument.

real cool

Take the compressor in Izotope Alloy 2 with a hot signal, get it compressing, then turn release all the way down. Huge, hard distortion.

Re: Twisted way to use Effect Plugins or hardware

Not sure it's a twisted use, but Permut8 is a neat little plugin that will make all sorts of weird bitcrushed noise from whatever you feed it. If you know about COH and his work, you'll instantly recognize the sound. Another wonderfully weird FX plugin is The Finger. You feed it a signal and it is a playable FX engine, somewhat geared towards glitchy stuff, but not exclusively. Stutter Edit works in much the same way and could be regarded as a bit more powerful. Also playable in a way is Turnado.
For all sorts of weird mayhem in hardware I have an FX chain going into a Rainbow Machine followed by Red Panda Particle. Everything can sound weird.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

Re: Twisted way to use Effect Plugins or hardware

In the past I used a Realistic brand 10 band EQ as a guitar distortion pedal.

If you adjusted the EQ a certain way, it sounded really nice as a fuzz when overdriven.
Also, if you routed drums from a drum machine into it, and turned off the power while it was still receiving signal, it made this awesome modulated bitcrush type of sound.

I should probably buy one of those to do it again.

Re: Twisted way to use Effect Plugins or hardware

The compressor in iZotope Trash 2 is also really gritty sounding when you crank the gain. I'll often use this in place of any saturation algorithms, depending on the sound and desired result of course.

As well, GlitchMachines make some awesome distortion and delay plugins, they don't need much adjustment to make some mad sounds and textures.
