Alright, this is going to be brief, because I did a huge write up, an absolutely massive thread.. and it got screwed up. So I'll summarize somewhat. Hawkwind's Dikmik : Audio Generator. What kind of rig does an audio generator have? He often created wind like noises. Is it just a sampler? It sounds more controlled than that. Zappa: Sheik Yerbouti. There is a lotlotlot of it on I'm so cute and the transition between Trying to grow a chin and City of Tiny lites. What do a lot of ambient artists use for a rig other than Keyboards? I've been messing around with effects and Y cables. If you use a Y cable and get your input and your output connected, it creates a pure signal that varies from effect to effect and is tweakable. Plus altering that with other effects you can get some out there sounds. Is anyone else into this weirdness?
