The Found Tapes Project 2014

DbN take old cassette tapes found on flea markets and thrift stores and use them as raw material in fully live improvised electronic music performances. The found tapes are sampled, manipulated, processed and ”physically played” using granular synthesis and other techniques, to create obscure rhythmical structures, noises and drones. For each and every concert DbN use only cassette tapes found locally within the city or the area of the specific concert venue, making the raw material for every performance totally unique. The audience is encouraged to bring their own cassette tapes to the venue for use in the performance. [1]

Synthesize Your Drums

Saw this nice little tutorial on Reddit. It shows you how to synthesize drums using an analog synth. The same rules basically apply to an analog simulation as well, so many people may find this useful.

I recently wrote some chiptunes for a game based on a TV license. I usually use Drumatic for most of my synthesized drums, but for this project I couldn’t get some of the snares quite right. So I used some of the Togu Audio Line analog simulations to create some retro drum hits. The basic recipes for those hits is shown here.
