The Devolution of the Printer.

This song was made purely with 3xOsc's, all original printers, pliers opening and closing, TV, computer, cellphone, glass, metal, string, ripping tape, pencil tap, and scanner noises sampled with my mic.

Special thanks to Rig for a couple of his cardboard and printer samples.

Enjoy the tune!

nice, but

Having played around with samples and recordings myself (with no success) makes me aware of how much time it takes to slice and position them the way you want it to without making a complete mess, so top marks for that. (the sample-quality was a delight, btw)

The beat was sweet (as always ^__^) and the "omphing" was there in all its glory.

The fact that you managed to make a pretty cool sounding song with basic sine-waves and other 3xOsc-ish creations is definitely a plus. (I would've gotten drunk managing all the samples and creating proper synths from scratch, so kudos to you)

I especially liked the build-up, with its "starting/rumbling engine" and repositioning-printerhead sounds.

However, for constructive-criticism's sake, the song became repetitive towards the middle. I think that the three main culprits were:

1) the bassy Osc's melody:
It had the same melodic scale over and over.

2) the "honey" sample:
It became annoying after a while. Perhaps it could've been refreshed either by stuttering and/or slowing down that sample (e.g. using FruityScratcher) or by adding new voice samples.

3) the structure:
Although it definitely was there, the song didn't really built-up to something.

Overall the song was good, but I know for a fact that you can do better.

P.S. the original review I typed got lost with the power-outage so I probably forgot some points here and there, damn it...

sorry if it sounds like a bitchy review... it wasn't my intention.

Hey man.
Thanks for the review, sorry it took me so long to respond, I've been without internet for a long time now.

I really appreciate all of the constructive criticism, I've actually used a lot of your advice when making some of my newer songs that I will be posting in the near future.
This is great, I love these types of reviews, very helpful... So props to you!

I'll be checking out your newer stuff in a bit and stopping by with the regular reviews :).

Your a Wowzer

I lovved identifieing all the sounds, and you bassed it up. how long did this take you to make? I think you could find some more sounds to jazz it up things way out there

DjUntold responds:

Thanks dude.
The song overall, with all the sampling time included took about 13 hours.
Pretty reasonable for the quality I'd say.

Thanks for the review!

Good stuff man

i like it. very creative use for household items. i've heard the cardboard samples from Rig already. you put em to good use. this makes my ears tickle when i listen to them on headphones. overall fun stuff.

Current Score

3.88 / 5.00 (+ 0.27)

DjUntold responds:

Thanks for taking the time to give er a listen :).
Yeah, I loved Rig's cardboard samples, they really inspired me haha.
Anyways, I'd like to hear some more of your demos as well when you get the chance!
