With a lot of my time taken up lately I am not getting out into the field as often as I would like to record fresh material. Also a lot of the new material I am wanting to record currently requires more planning as I usually need to organise a special location or event and go through the process of planning and arranging with organisers to get access to events and locations.
I am going to be using a process called convolution, which is essentially modifying one sound by the characteristics of another sound. So for instance if I take the base sound of a gun firing which contains a very loud and short impulse with a fade tail, when I use the convolution process it will apply these characteristics to the new sound. So a long looping sound with take on the characteristics of the short sharp loud attack but retain it’s actual sound ,material. This is an excellent way to create unusual sound effects.
