IXI, IXI, IXI !!!!!!!!!!!
We have been introduced a new music software created by Julio’s buddy Thor called ‘ixiquarks’. It’s loads of fun!!!!
I’ve been playing around with a drum loop using the ‘Grain Box’ instrument and getting some harsh and trippy sounds! Its cool because you can change grain size and pitch, pan, volume, delay, reverb amount and all sorts. Below (if you’re interested ) is the audio file in the view window of ixi as well as the grain box instrument that I used to manipulate it.
I’ve managed to record my drum mangling into logic, the only problem being I couldn’t figure out how to record direct form ixi into logic so I had to use the internal mic on my laptop. The recording needed some serious doctoring using Channel EQ’s and Noise Gates in logic by the end result doesn’t sound too bad. Check it out!
