Sense #6216. Hardware and apps together

This experimental chaotic ambient was made in home studio with using a several of my apps together with hardware audio equipment. When using high-quality external audio interfaces, many iPad apps provide great sound quality and can be used in both home and professional recordings. What were used:

Drum machine Hammond Auto-Vari 64 processed by SoundSaw app.

Chaotic rhythmic ambient generated by BeatCutter app from a many sound sources. Rhythm defines by drum machine.

Reverb output from BeatCutter processed by Classic FX app instead of internal reverb. BeatCutter app can use up to 4 external inputs and playback up to 8 audio files (without limit of file length). For external input / output was used audio interface Focusrite Scarlett 6i6.

Synth theme was played on a Korg MS2000 and processed by AltiSpace 2 app.

Mixed on console Allen & Heath GS3V. Main reverb AKG ADR68k. Group compressors DBX, final processing T.C. Electronic Finalizer 96k.

The final recording was done on the tape recorder Sony TC-510-2.

Finding beauty in an unlikely place.

The word “noise” generally conjures up some negative connotations. Synonyms could include “loud”, “abrasive”, “unnecessary” and “non-essential”, whether it’s audiovisual in nature or in reference to something modern like sorting large amounts of data through a computer.
