Invent/Experiment and find a unique sound (or more) that, in your opinion, could be as popular and overused as wubs in brostep, gates in trance, arps in many genres, filter sweeps, distortion on guitars, heck, even electric guitars themselves.

Don't just submit the sound as a one-off sample (though you should link it in as many formats as you can for future remix/usage purposes :3), make a track showcasing it.

You have 2 weeks to submit ONE entry.

Please try to make your song no longer than 2 or 3 minutes, though no sweat if it's longer.

Filter/Delay Madness [TheManeElectric] 6/29/2012 6:08:59pm No.14 - Score: 2
This has been on my soundcloud for some time, now, but I decided to do a bit more with it. I wish I'd had time to implement my looping distortion idea, though. :<

Basically attempted Psytrance as if it were shoegaze. Was fun as all hell.

this is probably not really that inventive Seventh Element 6/14/2012 3:45:06pm No.1 - Score: 1

the important things:
- delamancha dynamite_cowbell VSTi
- destroyFX Buffer Override VSTfx
- dlbue glitch VSTfx
unimportants: wubs with wasp xt, extra backing by fl keys and poizone (fl plugins) and a few grams of nexus2


also, was the description badly worded? i cant believe there's only one entry above mine...
okay, late rephrasing:
1. do some shit, random things
2. select one or more that sounds good in your opinion
3. continue that for a bit with other things, either conventional or unconventional.
4. export, submit here, and put how you made your sound in this description/comment box.
5. ??????

(also, the 2-3 minute limit was just a suggestion)

Why don't more people use reversed percussion samples?

Sounds of importance: Reversed kicks, hats, snares, and claps.

Wierd delay nonsence Maxey 6/20/2012 6:24:32pm No.4 - Score: 1
So this is what happened when I turned on the digital delay on my guitar amp, turned the feedback to 100% and used to tap tempo button to cause sudden changes in delay time, creating a weird time stretch effect which itself is fed back into the delay. This was just a recording of me jamming.

Im pretty sure im not the first to do this but i thought it was cool.

Greater Than Words Evdog 6/21/2012 11:06:46am No.5 - Score: 1
Due to the time limit set, this song is a lot shorter than the stuff I usually do.

Two main things about the track that I want to highlight:
1) I used the dubstep format to try and make something more ambient and focused on high pitches, instead of the deep wubs the genre is known for. I'm not sure how rare/commonplace this is, though. Note the high frequency synth that goes all over the place.
2) There's a flanger on the snare. I don't know if anyone else does that, but I personally thought that it sounds nice.

I'd very much like to hear this remixed, if anypony wants to try. I'll upload the stems and make an MLR page before the sync listen.

Neptunian Orchestra Neon Jalapeño 6/27/2012 2:40:16pm No.12 - Score: 1
Filtered orchestral sounds make great ambient pads.

Added some bass and glitchy drums to compliment the sounds.

Bartekko Smells Like G 6/29/2012 5:55:21pm No.13 - Score: 1

Heat (WIP) Catfrog 6/27/2012 2:44:59am No.11 - Score: 0
Blah, been a long time since I've done anything because of school :\ BUT ITS SUMMER NOW SO BACK TO MUSIC.

This was made like three months ago but I hardly touched it since. All the sounds were made from scratch in Massive by me about three months ago. Also they have Reverb, FabFilter, OTT Multiband Dynamics, a limiter, slight overdrive, and probably another FabFilter. Lots of stuff

I HAD THIS PLANNED BUT I FORGOT natsukashi 6/29/2012 6:11:21pm No.15 - Score: 0
