Éclat: Part 17

Avatar eclatcrew | April 16, 2019


The Challenge:
To create a new track using percussive sounds synthesized using a Buchla Music Easel.

You can use any other sounds or samples that you like, but the majority of your percussion and rhythmic information should be made with these sounds. If the sounds don't quite sound like drums from your usual kit, try using EQ, compression, and filters to help shape the sounds into what you'd usually like to hear.

What We Made:

Please credit  "100 (OMADOWIN)" or link to their Youtube channel wherever you post your track.

For extra credit, learn how to turn any of these sounds into a melodic instrument, using a sampler in your DAW.

Garageband: Using the Sampler

(note that if you're using the sampler in garageband, you'll need to edit your sample to exactly what you want before loading it into the sampler, as there are no in-device editing capabilities)
