A happy new year to you all, and apologies for the lack of updates over the Festive Season. Work on things
15 carried on right up to Christmas, and most of the issues are now on their way to subscribers
. As we've mentioned before, things
15 contains a free 3" CD by the Sonic Catering Band
. Check their site for sound samples of their exotic audio collages, all cooked up using some readily available audio tools, namely Fruity Loops
and that old mainstay, Cubase
. The CD was pressed in Czechoslovakia by GZ Digital Media
, a complex operation that didn't quite pan out. Perhaps some day we'll post a picture of the original CD design...
The ultimate plan is to create a DIY Sonic Catering page - allowing you to mix your own audio snack. While we ponder on the technical hurdles, visit these (far more complex) on-line audio tools. Looplabs
is a dance-orientated mixing desk, which will eat up hours of your time, while Cymbalism
offers a similar service. No-one’s come up with a DIY, on-line, abstract guitar noise machine. Just yet.
