I know that Kyma is a very specific and specialised tool for sound design and that it requires its own hardware to run, but I’m wondering, can ER-301 do some of the things Kyma does? Looking for sound design processes, such as the one on the video below:
I’ve never used Kyma but I believe this sound is mostly just slowing down a recording of a hairdryer (say to 10%-20% of original speed) and then putting it through a comb filter (i.e. a very short delay with feedback) for that metallic edge. Then he mapped a few parameters to a gesture controller. All of these things are possible in the modular world, you probably don’t even need the ER-301 but you can use it for that of course.
Not a chance, sorry. I tried in Kyma and Reaktor… It surveys a database that comprehends volume and spectra information of each of the samples and then stitches similar content together to match the incoming input.
It’s a very ingenious plugin and I use it now and again for creature movements mostly. Really useful for things like that!
