The song was recorded in the usual way. Tracks were processed in Nama
with my favourite LADSPA and LV2 plugins. Then every clean/source
track and reverb/delay send was loaded into Csound to place it in a
virtual 3D space, using HRTF (Head related transfer function) with a
Unfortunately, the resultant mix is not as much 3D as I would have
wanted to, but it was a great learning experience and Benjamin's
spirited contributions breathed life and energy into the song. I ended
up with more than 100 tracks having to go through Csound.
First lessons: don't start that big! Place groups of sounds in a few
predetermined spots. Don't move too many sounds. Define a 3D sonic
space before hand and work out the interaction between artificial
reverb effects and the "natural" room reverb.
It was a hugely enjoyable project, challenges and all. Thanks to
Benjamin for his invaluable collaboration!
That's really nice. Great instrument sounds. Your voice is nice in
there, compliments Benjamin's nicely. And the 3D comes through. I wonder
how it would sound in an ambisonic field?
Thanks for sharing!
