Aphasiatic Fields

April 24, 2014 12:16 AM

I've always found the sound of a big tuning fork wobbling freely on the strings of a guitar (laid flat) really mysterious and interesting. This track is a whole bunch of that, with a reverb patch that reverberates not the direct signal, but the signal passed through a bank of very short delays that act like a resonant comb filter. The track ends up with buzzing the rung tuning fork against various open strings. There's more of my stuff at https://soundcloud.com/seclude and it's all CC licenced. Hope you like.

That sounds amazing! What's your signal chain?

Cheers! For this one it was guitar -> line6 HD500 -> Gibson Echoplex -> Lexicon Vortex. The weird reverb is from the HD500 but otherwise the guitar tone is just a clean emulated fender twin. The Echoplex was just acting as a really long open delay, and I don't think the Vortex was doing much at all. Multitracked 4 layers of that in Ardour, then some Calf compressors, eqs, more reverb and a bit of tube saturation at the end.
