Quite a few people (probably most) quite liked the holophonor "composition" song, so I extended it a bit, heavily processed it, and added a simple beat. Note that this is very work in progress, and it hasn't been mastered (ie, there's far too much treble, and although the file isn't distorted, you're likely to get some on crappy speakers...headphones might work best).

Once I go back to college, I'll book some studio time and record a real flute...but until then...

This is... awesome!

This is not an insult at all, but this music may put me right to sleep; so relaxing. Plus, it's 1 AM here.  wink

For those more technically minded, it's composed of five holophonor samples (each a single note or phrase, except for the fifth sample, which is the entire thing, as you can probably hear) - these samples are then loaded up onto a drum machine, and synched up.
The drum loop is a simple Reason preset (the whole thing being done in Reason).

Effects wise, the holophonor has heavy reverb, plus a 3 stage delay. In order to get that "Roland" like synth sound from the holophonor, there's a Envelope Controlled Filter applied, which I manually control during the recording. The drums also have a similar filter, but this is only to fade in and out the treble to give that muted sound.

Edit: A thought occurs...if you plug it into G-Force, iTunes or similar music player with visualiser (G-Force enables you to visualise with bitmaps, so is a good choice), you get your own holophonor...

Edit Edit: There's a lot of peaking at the very, very end, so you get distortion. It isn't your headphones, so I'll just take that bit out and fade it down. I'll upload later.

I loved this. When you're done with it, I think you should set it to the holophoner scenes in "Parasites Lost"

Ok

1  WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY COOL!

2  If you put Windows Media Player in full screen mode with visualzations it REALLY is cool!

3  (tech) it seems a bit wet in the middle, gets a bit too muddy, and I saw you already know about the clipping....

^It's probably because I'm using an evaluation of Reason, I have to "hijack" the audio stream (and there isn't much "obtainable" software available for the mac either).

Top quality. I agree that there is too much trebble (especialy that bit at the end). I am also not sure if the beat is nescicsary, I'd like to hear a version without. It remindes me of Tangerine Dream who I'm well into at the moment. As a work in progress I give it full thumbs up.

And there I was thinking I was the only person left who still used the term "Chill-Out Track"

Excellent.  And it really does "spargle" in iTunes' "confidence" inspired visuals.

Can't wait to hear the finished version, as well as any other creations you may have.
