Diego Stocco returns with the third in his video series of advanced & experimental sound design techniques Feedforward Sounds. In this tutorial entitled “Creative Miking Techniques” Stocco goes into great detail to explain some of his techniques developed for sound design through creative recording.
“From my point of view, even in these days where plugins, controllers and apps have become important tools for music production and sound design, being able to effectively and creatively use microphones remains essential, because creating original sounds from all kind of acoustic sources remains essential.”
As Designing Sound’s month devoted to Silence comes to an end, what better time to take a look at a remarkable video course that delves into the vast and interesting world of effective sound recording.
The Sound Recording Workshop (video/audio series) comes to us from Sound Librarian and presenter Stephan Schütze.
Diego Stocco has released the second instalment of his Feedforward Sounds video series, each focussing on different experimental sound design techniques. For FFS02 it is Convolution Processing.
Convolution Processing is a technique that allows the real-time creation of musically related ambiences, accents and transition elements from an instrumental or vocal part. In this video you’ll see/hear how this technique can enrich a simple percussive part and a synth part into a full sounding track.
So far this month; Shaun Farley’s Pure Data Wavetable Synth series and Varun Nair’s pep talk An Intimidating Start have been great introductions into the word of Max/MSP and Pure Data (I wish I had those articles when I got started!). I am still quite a beginner myself with Pure Data (and moreso with Max/MSP) so what I thought I would do is share some links that have helped me down this very long rabbit-hole lined with yellow bricks. It should be noted (or else someone else will) that both Max/MSP and Pd have built-in tutorials and lessons. Please consider these links a suppliment or augmentation of those materials.
My intention is this post to become a sort of living document of cool projects and learning resources for Pure Data, Max/MSP and any other DSP Environment out there. As such: this is going to be an incomplete list. If you have any suggested additions to this list please post them in the comments or email me: jack at designingsound dot org.
I thought a quick video would be the more efficient way to present this one.
