I’ve been playing with a new, simple form of synthesis that I call WaveFlavours. It basically involves starting with a couple of wave-tables and gradually swapping sample points between them, inverting and reversing the tables and other slow modifications.
I wanted to make a long drone showing how a sound evolved over time, but then realised that a sublime loop would be fun.
This is about as raw as it gets. Eight minutes of the basic pattern with no extra melodic decoration. The only thing that changes is the slow evolution of the lead sound as the simple sin / ramp pairing that I start with, gets more distorted and more harmonics appear.
The bass sound is evolving too, but with faster evolution and the built-in phaser effect it’s more immediately dynamic, but less obviously changing over the longer time-scale.
