    Hey guys and gals, I've got some pretty wild stuff available now on my webpage.

    check out "100% Guitar" #0-2

    they're 100% guitar! And seriously, tell me what genre to call it. Also, the older tracks have vocals, but not much guitar...

    GAH! I spelled experimental wrong! Oh well. It was very avant garde, that mis spelling...

    AMBIENT

    Aen, nice stuff - I love it.
    Off course, you use an EXPERIMENTAL approach on the guitar to create the sounds, but in the end, the result is beautiful ambient soundscapes.
    Reminds me pretty much of what I did on the first two Laub (my main band/project - more info on kitty-yo.net) releases and the Tritop album (improvised Drum 'n Bass project in the 90ies).
    Btw, I used to call it "treated guitar" back then.

    I guess I'd call it ambient soundscapes or something -- whatever, I like it. Tell us about the gear & how you recorded it. Sounds loud!

    #0 I made long long ago with a strat copy and a delay pedal and my itty bitty crate amp. The washy parts are time stretched copies of the more "normal" sounding parts.


    #1 I made with Cubase and my Parts Tele. Again I used the timestretching technique, but also a bit crusher, and loads of other effects within the program. The part that sounds like some kind of data stream or crazy computer, is actually me scratching the strings as fast as possible, and then running through an aggressive tremelo, and a flanger or chorus, I think. I also pitch shifted the main chord progression to get the "6 string bass" sound. I would have used a Jaguar Baritone custom, but they are $700 and I only had $5.

    #2 Is my MIM standard>bad monkey>Ableton Live 4

    It's an insane computer program. I used the "PLogue Rebuilder" plugin a lot, Filter delay, and "Mad Shifta" as well as a bit of pitch shifting for the beat.


    Live is mainly what I'm using for now, 100% guitar #3 and #4 should be available soon....

    Cool -- Are the plugins you mention built into Ableton or second party?

    Plogue and Mad shifta are 2nd party, i got em from VST central, or some such nonsense. Live can pitch shift, and do a sort of time stretching thing, as well as a zillion other things.

    Actually, about the "loudness" comment- this was probably the quietest recording I've ever done, cause with the exception of #0, it was all Direct input recordings. And #0 was a mic on a very wimpy lil' amp.
