This is in collaboration with

Basically, Traumatizer made a lot of cool, creepy sounds, and I mashed the hell out of them and threw in Rinca's vox. Beefy!

This was my first experiment with a technique I figured out for making beefier reese basses. Usually, a reese is made by layering triangular synth waves and detuning them from each other. But the fattest sub comes from a clean sine wav tone, right? So I started with a series of simple, deep, crisp sub shot, and then layered it with bassless synths, some triangular, some not, in approximately the same tone. I also layered it with Traumatizer's samples, run through a waveshaping saturator, in order to turn them into reese elements. It seems to work well. The differences in texture create minor harmonic and tonal deviations from the clean tone, thus lending the overall picture that bristling reese feel.

I may have to ask you again how to achieve such sweet synth bass sounds. As a saxophonist, of course I like the sax hits mixed in with all the other fun stuff. Keeps it in an unusual light/dark razor edge.

Intense, "phat" in every sense. Gut wrenching bass tones...nice.

You are a true scientist of sound, aren't you, Joachim?

I mean, just the mathematics of bass and your methodology is super intriguing. I like seeing someone approach music from that point of view. Truly understanding what goes on between the speaker and the ear.

Nice to also be able to experience the practical application of your theories by simply pressing "play". Maybe not math, per se, but clearly quantifying and applying the theory that makes the sounds that you like. As opposed to just twiddling knobs and hoping for the best until it sounds good.

Long and short of it: I found this to be very enjoyable. In an amped-up Esthero kind of way.

Thanks for sharing.

5th element guest singer
the degree - in cents of detune - with chosen layering is just right - for the bass - seems to range from
8 to 15 cents making a natural chorus fattening / plumping without
the 'cuttng-out' - thus seeming to administer an overall sub-smoothing.
like the eyes wide shut / 5th element (mila jovovich bruce willis flick) classy vocals
