Great Historical Site

Press Here To Enter The Site: Symphony of Sirens:

“A comprehensive overview of the complexity and breadth of the many early 20th-century Russian avantgarde movements, followed by detailed notes and contexts for the individual recordings – including summary biographies of the main actors; additional work notes about the process of the extraordinary Baku reconstruction; a bibliography, rare photographs, web research links, artwork, facsimiles of contemporary documents, a comparative timeline of European and Russian Avantgardes and the first English translation of an article by Avraamov about the symphony. This is a definitive library collection, some seven years in the making and possibly our most important release of recent years.”

Supercollider Meets Guitar Effects Boxes Part 2

Almost the exact same setup as is my previous post here but I used a different preset in Laconicism and ran the audio through a Digitech GSP 1101 instead of the Vox.

Supercollider Meets Guitar Effects Boxes

I decided to try a little experiment.  As many already know, Supercollider is a very powerful audio language.  I am not a programmer so I tend to seek out ready to run software as opposed to downloading the builds and making it custom to my needs.  I found this great little, ready to run, Supercollider application called Laconicism.  I ran the audio output from Laconicism through a Vox Satchurator distortion pedal and a Digitech TimeBender Delay.  I recorded the distorted and delayed output into Live, made a MP3 and posted it here.  It’s really a little long but shows what can be done with only two guitar effects boxes.
