Attach a bit crusher, and maybe a distortion effect, to this! Leave the bit crusher's jitter alone & raise its depth all the way. It gives a metallic glitch sound. Adjusting the mixing board's h/m/l levels is necessary to get the exact desired sound. Also, for some reason, raising the mixing board's delay & reverb to 9 o'clock makes it really pop.
I was trying to create a loop using the VSTIs Rez3, Wolfram CM and AXP SoftAmp 3OD. It went quite wrong so rather than delete it I decided to chop it up in Audacity and create a PCM Synth file of glitchy percussion sounds. There are 60 in total, one on each note from C1 to B5. They work well by themselves or equally with effects like reverb / delay or filters / EQ. You could also reverse them, change octave ranges etc.
I took the fingerprint from the 8Bit-preset & warped it " into this ! I use the word Ringmod because if you select either Fm or Am the warp factor is much more subtle & sounds more closer to RM than bitcrush!
As with the first one, this is a not a synth as such but rather a collection of samples loaded into the pcm synth from C3 - B5 (rooted on each white note)
They started as recordings of background noise on a train using the voice recorder on a phone, converted using media.io then cleaned up in Audacity and given a proper mangling in Smack My Batch Up. See my blog post on the joy of sampling for further info.
Best described as dark ambient or maybe glitch, some are looped others are played through once.
