The Dream: To make songs where the only percussion is swords. Sounds of swords clashing together, being unsheathed with a shiii-iiiinng and clanking around.
The problem: Though I’m generally a competent programmer and technologist, I’m completely ignorant of most things involving digital audio.
What I have:
- Pisound on a pi 3b
- Electonic drum kit (Alesis Nitro drum module) for the midi controller w/midi out
- A half-hour of audio recording of me clanging swords together to sample from
I looked at building an LV2 plugin from scratch, but this seems daunting: http://ll-plugins.nongnu.org/lv2pftci/
So according to this video, think I can make things happen with Orac:
Consideration: I have my pisound set up with an older version of the blokas OS,
lsb_release -a says I’m running Raspbian 9.4. I think this was before they started calling it patchboxOS. So I think that will have to be updated. I want to keep my pedalboard settings, so I tar’d the directory
/usr/local/modep/.pedalboards and saved that. Will that work?
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing? WILL ORAC MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE?
