PROBABLY FOR THE BEST

Caustic Song file (optional): 

note: you must have 3.1 beta2 or higher installed to open this file

It was done in 3.1 beta2. Did a lot of experimenting with running audio through the modular with filters, FX etc. but in the end only an array of 3 machines into the modular synth for a whacked arpeggiator  remain. Continued experiments with Vocality TTS and Vocoder here too.

get vocality here for android:

Lyrics are posted on Sound Cloud

Really like this. I find synthesized sounds like you used here work well alongside the vocoder.

This is sweet.  

This is sweet.  

And the vocals really make me think of the Valve game 'Portal'.

Cool experiment Wardini!   I

Cool experiment Wardini!   I just don't know where to start!   I have set up so many signal chains and modelling its crazy.... I will have something to put up in the coming weeks before summer, Builderz Project for Caustic will have some HUGE things coming.   The Modular update is just insanely awesome.  So stay tuned...

yeah I've been doing the same

yeah I've been doing the same thing jblann1, and having fun.smiley. With this one at some point I stepped back & thought well, what really serves this thing as a song instead of being cool.. (i  really  need to start thinking 'songs' if I want to learn here) so I will look forward to your experiments. The bass guitar modeling you did was amazing!

 Sorry! Einstürzende

yes Sorry! Einstürzende Neubauten are probably my favourite band of all time but they made a lot of fairly confrontational and challenging music, especially early on. 'Halber Mensch' is actually pretty focused, but equally still terrifying, for their early stuff.

I just loved the idea of a sinister, massed chorus of voices shouting, 'It's Probably for the best' cheeky

Thanks Pan65!! I would have never thought of doing something random like that without the new machine input to sequencer trick

What setup did you use with vocality to get such a smooth female voice?  any particular packs combined with vocality?

In vocality I now just use

In vocality I now just use the stock UK and US TTS female voices I uninstalled the downloadable demos because I found they were always running in the background in Android. But the stutter voice at the start is just the standard UK female straight out of Vocality with 'best' cut and put on a separate PCM sample so she could stutter. The UK female is really smooth but I mix the US female because some enunciations are cleaner also I've been purposely misspelling things to get pronunciation to be clearer in the song.

Excellent work with Vocality

Excellent work with Vocality and pure synth madness! I will probably not be able to sing the lead synth theme, but I love it!

I think that if you load a custom image when you upload a new tune, that is how the link will look when you post it...

So what part of this track made you decide to drop in the 2 insert effects (parametric eq & compressor) on the mastering board?
