OT Lab 3. 5 Years, 5 Months ago
It's that time, so I thought I'd start a new thread. Darenager (among others) had some excellent ideas for this lab. So what will it be?

Neighbor machines with 2 samples (1 for tr1 1 for tr5)
No input
No fx
a single single cycle
a drum loop only
remix a loop using just the loop
make a track from just the word spoken 'Octatrack'
just use a specific effect eg chorus
DJ static - 2 statics of considerable difference, make a mix/mashup
Micro music - a track with a duration of just a few seconds

Thoughts?

how about:

stream one youtube vid (that we all agree upon) into the octatrack, with only live sampling and/or live processing? might be fun to pick something super well-known with lots of cultural baggage..

What about live resampling, for a short time (8 times for example) ?
Interested in working on dan moï mouth harp loops ? it contains a lot of harmonics - also the cheapest vocoder I know. In this case I can provide some dan moï sounds

I order for it to be a real challenge:

1) Collect ideas
2) Vote on those ideas
3) Pick the least popular idea

Re:OT Lab 3. 5 Years, 5 Months ago
Im more up for focussing on how far one or two of the effects can be pushed- short synth/vocal sample, no resampling and only use of (for example) the filters... exploring a different aspect in more detail. The last lab told us you can make something out of nothing.

Hmm, how about:

OT Science Lab3 - One (octa)track mind

Rules:

Only 1 track to be used, neighbour machines and master track may be employed, any fx can be used, no resampling, any number of patterns may be used, the arranger may be used, the source sample is the spoken word 'Octatrack', the link for the sample will be published shortly, the closing date is the end of April, the duration of the piece is strictly no more than 2 minutes. You may use as many slots as you like, but these must only contain the original sample, and sample trigs may only be on track 1.

The idea is to produce a piece with as much variation as possible over the course of the 2 minutes, a kind of journey of tricks with the sample, go crazy with fx and general mangling, a bit like the old 8 bit computer demoscene idea. The piece should have at least one instance of the sample where the word can be understood, some expanation of what you did is required, the track should be uploaded to the soundcloud octatrack lab 3 group. (link to be published shortly)

Only 1 entry per participant, so make it count!

Ready?
