Remember when before computer music…rockers held their guitar towards the Amp to get a feedback signal and then make noise with it…

I think it can be done with hardware synths with an Amp and a distortion pedal.


Currently holding my keyboard up to an amp cranked all the way up and it’s not feeding back. What do?


You can get feedback with delay… set the range to a positive number (above 0 db) and it gets louder with each echo. It will overload pretty fast but you can automate that parameter and harness the effect… have a panic button ready… scary af when it gets away from you :zap::sunglasses:


Tape a microphone to your keyboard … unplug the the keyboard… plug in the microphone… hold the keyboard and microphone up to the amp… block your ears and run away.


Always ensure you have a Pultec and Maag EQ in your arsenal


Give up


endlessly processing digital sounds through analogue gear is one of my favorite things to play with


Fls Peak controller being used to trigger reverb and other effects like gross beat…etc…

But Peak controller being used to modulate buffer override = computer crash.

So drums with peak controller which is routed to trigger gross beat that is modding a granular synth that is being automated…result…switching glitch patterns in a rhythmic sequence…which sounds like complextro.


Last step is glueing all together.


i’ve been playing around with sidechaining ambient pads to a usually muted field recording with exagerrated compressor settings for some unstable garbled tim hecker vibes


Finally got the basics of the glitch vaetxh woulg sound…

It’s a combination of beat slicing, harmor scrubbing, granular synthesis, and slicing splicing audio clips…

With crap loads of automation of various fx and parameters…like filters reverb etc…

Also love philter for custom gates and automate switching gross beat patterns for extra glitchiness

And mix and match all the different generations of all different sounds together.:grin:


Then completely smashing all the dynamics out of everything :grinning: seriously though, Clouth like’em some of that multiband compression. I think some of his more melodic stuff loses an emotional quality though because of his fondness of it, but for his glitchfests, it just tends to make you not allowed to be unaware of every little micro edit. Its like getting to experience ADHD without none of the life ruining, debilitating side affects of its neural inflammation :hushed:
