why is that? they want to EXPAND on THAT sound, not copy it. They don't want to sound exactly like EMPTYSET, as you suggest. that would be fucking stupid. But you persist. on them doing it the same, why?

Off the top of my head (this is for their early period)...
* subsonics, LFOs
* simple function generators (i.e., test equipment), sine waves
* inaudible, yet physical sound
* etc.

Thanks, yeah I was aware of those elements in Pan sonic's past. I had thought by what you said that there was a specific side chain feedback technique that they were using to add something to their sounds..

But no worries as I got to watch a great documentary on them thanks to you :tu:

Emptyset on the Pro 2

Post by FuzzyWuzzy » Mon Oct 28, 2019 1:02 am

iVardensphere has an awesome YouTube tutorial in which he details rhythmic sound design on the Pro 2 that's worth checking out as well. In the end, he even goes through some Emptyset inspired patches he made.
