WMD DPLR delay… a preview of its capabilities

Been using mine non-stop. Beautiful sounding delay and deep for such a small module.

This is a short demo of what can be done with the DPLR, and what happens when you crank up the REGEN. This is mono input with a stereo delay with feedback between channels, as can be heard.
You can get many tones with the feedback type button at the top, shown near the end.

Important Logic Update

It’s too early for this, Justin…

patch basics:
sequencers used are the tiptop audio circadian rhythms (CR), z8000, modcan touch sequencer (TS), intellijel metropolis and 2x make noise pressure points with brains.
CHORDS: make noise tELEHARMONIC sequenced by the CR and two pressure points. processed through the tiptop audio ZDSP reverb.
LEAD MELODY: intellijel atlantis sequenced by the intellijel metropolis and processed through the qu-bit electronic RT60 reverb.
KICK: blue lantern asteroid BDv4 sequenced by the CR.
SNARE: noise engineering BI triggered by the CR and processed through the make noise erbe verb and synthesis technology e580 delay.
HAT: SSF quantum rainbow MKII purple noise with maths expo envelope sequenced by the CR.
SUB KICK: tiptop audio BD808 triggered by the CR.
MID SECTION PERCUSSION: mutable instruments elements sequenced by the CR and Z8000.
MID SECTION TO END HARMONY: modcan triple osc through the modcan multimode filter sequenced by the modcan TS and processed through mutable instruments clouds.
my brother says:
“Sounds like some kind of scale in the key of F minor. the chords are Bo dominant 7th first inversion followed by Dd major first inversion, Ab major then another Ab major an octave higher.”

This is what happens when your 3 year old daughter trips on a pair of headphones in your studio then dives hands first into your modular rig on the floor, amazing!

Venetian Snares Interview with Fact Magazine

Here is Aaron breaking down the ridiculousness of the current state of music media, how critics write as if they’re paid in coupons, and how being musically relevant is equivalent to playing a game. Absurdity complete with clickbait title, “Venetian Snares hates the music industry, hates FACT Singles Club and hates you”. Awarding him a TRASH_AUDIO Breakcore coupon good for a Thai massage from Surachai or an IDM Banana sticker redeemable for a hair combing from Alessandro. Really though, Aaron is usually the smartest guy in the room – and tallest.

At odds with his career
“In order to make a living I have to allow people to hear my music and I have to go fucking clown show it for them at some fucking club”

Conforming art
“It doesn’t even sound anything like self-expression, it’s like… I’m awesome within these predefined parameters that are presented to me. Which I guess most artists feel is what’s exciting about a genre. They see a few people doing a similar thing and then everyone just jumps on it and goes, “I’m this now!” It’s like if a bunch of people wore the same fucking outfit from the Gap, you know?”

Imbecile
“‘[Venetian Snares] came on while I was giving someone a back massage.’ That’s the best one. A fuckin’ back massage. [Venetian Snares is] not compatible with massages!? No shit! I’d like to give them a back massage with a belt sander. God. I’d like to get into a time machine and drown their parents. This is the state of modern critique?! Holy shit. I don’t know.”

Harmonic Symmetry

Harmonic Symmetry from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Harmonic patch using the new MakeNoise tELHARMONIC is a Multi-Voice, Multi-Algorithm synthesizer, and 4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator. The master clock is the Tiptop Circadian Rhythms. Clock output running into the Modcan Touch Sequencer. Channel output one running into one intellijel Dixie (V1) for the bassline. Dixie output running into a Mutable instruments Ripples filter (LP4), triangle waveform. Second channel output sequencing quantized 8 note sequence to the telharmonic oscillator, creating the first lead sequence in the patch (major scale set). One Mult output taken and sent to the Strymon BigSky reverb (chorale mode) to create the delicate swarm pads that rise in and out at the builds. Amplitude control of the slow rises via the intellijel HexVCA, slow rate control from one Modcan Quad LFO. The other output is then taken and sent to the Qu-bit RT-60 reverb. Third output from the Modcan TS sending quantized CV to the MakeNoise STO oscillator variable SHAPE output then sent through lower section of the MakeNoise Optomix. The forth output from the Modcan TS is sending a 4 chord pattern (min9) to the intellijel shapeshifter module in chord mode. This output is then sent to another Qu-Bit RT-60 reverb algorithm. MakeNoise Mysteron plucking guitar like effect being triggered by a 4ms RCD, 5th trigger out. The Mysterson then is running out into a Strymon BlueSky pedal, reverb far right.
Drum sequencing from TipTop CR, channel one kick drum going to the Nord Drum 2. Second channel number 2 triggering a custom snare drum made on the Nord Drum 2. Channel 6 from the CR triggering a low bass drum, in the key of “C”. Clock output from CR into the 4ms SCM being rotated by a intellijel dixie sine wave output running at a slow rate shifting the 16th’s hi hat pattern. Noise source for hi-hats are the SSF quantum rainbow 2, purple output running into the MakeNoise Optomix. The high end snare clap sound is by the Synthrotek’s DS-M drum module, then being lightly processed by the Synthrotek DLY, slowly CV controlled by a Modcan Quad LFO in random mode creating more glitchy effects. This is then being sequenced by channel number 2 from the tiptop CR. The first lower left side 4ms Spectral Multi-band Resonator processing 72 custom DSP samples, which are being played by one addac wave player. The output is then being sent to a intellijel uVCF filter (hi pass), for the light subtle glitch textures. The second 4ms Spectral Multi-band Resonator, processing another set of 32 samples (noise washes/slow rises/falls) via channel number 4 from the CR tiptop. Main output from a intellijel Mutagen mixer then ran through the Eventide space pedal for extra spatial atmosphere. :-)
