Pan65's Collab Starters

So there’s been some nice collaborations in the community and as I had a go with Bipidribait’s ”Subsynth Squeal” I thought I should upload some starters myself. I give you 6 tracks to play with and you can do whatever you want with them. I made most of them today specially for this event but the last one is a special treat. It was meant to be my next “Subsynth Jam Session” and I’ve been working on it for a while, but I’m stuck and can’t finish it so I give to the community instead. This song is a little more than just a starter and you will get the feel of it immediately but it’s up to you if you want to keep it that way or if you aim for a total remake.

Only one rule, you can’t publish your work until August 25 (my birthday). That’s to give everybody an equal chance to finish without getting influences by others. Have fun… I hope I’ll get a lot of birthday-presents this year.angel

Hey Scarabee, you asked me

Hey Scarabee, you asked me earlier about offering one or more of my tracks for a compilation project... I checked your page from another thread I thought you were talking about it, but must be missing something...  care to enlighten me???   I just uploaded something that may be of interest to you.... or perhaps a collab project to expand, as I have two machine slots open on it.... 

Hey Pan65, I'm gonna check out what you got here too.... I'm about to clear out all of my Caustic 2.1 projects and clear the path for something new....

I couldn't download 2002 and 2004, for some reason I got routed to a page with gibberish. Using my phone, haven't tried it on laptop yet..

If I find and finish something, can I call it a remix of a wip? I've been telling a couple of soundclouders I no longer do collabs, have to be consistent, it'll be our little secret that it's actually a collaboration ;)

It was for a compilation

It was for a compilation project app, as a promotion album for  Caustic 2.12, but as Rej said in the new synth topic, it's better to wait for Caustic3 for a promo album.

Hi IG, I don’t know what’s

Hi IG, I don’t know what’s going on with those files. For some reason my phone’s browser think these are .txt files that should be shown on the screen. I’ve tried several times to fix the links but nothing seems to help.sad However from my laptop they work just fine. Maybe Mike know what’s going on.

You can call your song whatever you like, I gave these to the community to do whatever they like with. IMO these are only seeds of inspiration for you to get started and the final production will be your own. However it would be nice to know if one of them was used in your song, you can always drop me a mail if you don’t want to tell others.smiley

Nope! That didn’t work either. I’m out of options on this one, I see no difference between those working and those not. Maybe Rej or Mike can figure out what’s wrong but I cant see it.blush

Good idea, maybe this forum can be used for events in general, like collabs, challenges etc…

Hey,

Hey,

Your browser is trying to download the binary data.

You can right click and select "Save Link As" from the context menu, this will actually save the file.

My guess is, it is dropbox's fault and it has something todo with how they are handling mime types. It is impossible for it to be single cell's fault since that link takes you to their server.

OR its the browsers fault, but firefox is doing the same thing for me. I did the right click trick on Jason's fgile yesterday. :)

As an added tid bit of

As an added tid bit of extraneous programmer BS...

When your browser sends request to a server, it sends a "request header" to the server with a File Type IE zip, txt, html etc. So when he server gets this requests, it looks in a file of listen MIME types. From there is decides if it needs to serve an html page or say send back binary data as a file IE zip or tar archive.

The fact that a .caustic file is not a "documented" MIME type means the server is guessing and there is some mess up between the browser and server.

My guess is, dropbox's security model has to do with the fact it is tight and for MIME types that are unknown it will send binary data as text for safety.

The descrepency you are getting between mobile and laptop have todo with your browser, where it works, the browser and server are deciding its a file to download, whereas the other case they say its multipart text data.

It works fine on laptop.

It works fine on laptop. After the update dropbox has had another error on android as well, sharing via copy link no longer worked because the links weren't being copied to the clipboard, at least that bug is gone. Guess they winged it, let the users sort out the mess :(

 

I'm using google chrome as browser on laptop.

Thanks for your quick

Thanks for your quick response Mike. I thought of the MIME type issue, maybe some browsers look in the file-header for unknown types? I made a resave on those files but that didn’t solve the problem and I renamed the files to get rid of space-characters but… since I see no different in the links, file-types, file-names etc, it’s a big mystery to me why all but two links work. I’ll pack the files with ZIP to see if that will work better.

......

Yep! The ZIP works from all my devicessmiley

I've made an attempt in C2, but C3 alpha came in the middle. Is it OK for a Caustic 3 alpha or beta version?

Thank you IG, this is absolutely beautiful. I like how you slowly build up for something that never happen, it kept me alert throughout the whole track. AMAZING... yesyes

I wanted to stay in that place, just some slow fades and PEQ changes throughout, the synth/pad sounded wonderful :)

The wait did pay off, if I had uploaded sooner I wouldn't have included that vocal sample. Not too sure about it, but I think it falls in at the right time and speed, tuned it up a bit.

Nice evolving track

Nice evolving track johandelpire!

And this reminds me that I started something with the same Starter. Just finished here. Not completely happy, but I had no much spare time between studio and rehersals for my concert. Hope you like it, and Happy Birthday!!!smiley

This is really nice, the harmonica and the arp sounds fantastic. And the drums are crystal clear as always, I need to study your mixing technique. Awesomeyesyes

I reaaly liked the rythm and bass in your starter. I couldn't resist to add a bridge. I wanted to make the track longer, planned to reuse the harmonica melody after the bridge, with another synth sound, but had no time for it, at least for your 2013 anniversary ;-)

As you can see in the Caustic file, I loaded an harmonica PCM, but I used a subsynth (more fun). This was made in C 2.12. I added the arp and synthpad yesterday in C3, as icing on the cake, or cherry on the birthday pie ;-))

By the way, the harmonica

By the way, the harmonica sound in Subsynth is made with a short fragment of the harmonica PCM loaded as wavweform.
