"Spring" - Minimal Generative Ambient (Deluge Standalone)
Just dipping my toes into generative ambient in general and also on the synthstrom deluge. Ambient feels like a genre that is so much more inviting, welcoming and forgiving to produce than anything I've tried before.
At this point it feels like healing. 🩹 ❤️
No samples were used, all sounds are from the internal synth engine. The sequencing relies heavily on probability and iteration dependence (e.g. "every 4th out of 7 rotations).
4 Tracks were used:
a) The arpeggio is triggered once at the beginning of each loop. Not every note is active every time, so the notes being played vary. The rate of the arpeggio is modulated by an LFO. A delay repeats the melody twice before a new one is created.
b) The chords are 15 notes spread out over five ovtaves, each of them positioned at different times during the one bar loop. They have a probability of 10 to 20 percent. That way sometimes full chords happen, sometimes single notes, sometimes silence.
c) To fill some gaps, another voice was added, that holds single notes in a range of two octaves. The length of the notes is modulated by a very slow LFO.
d) Lastly, there's a bird tweeting occasionally. I made this sound by filtering white noise with a lot of resonance and modulating the cutoff frequency.
