Padshop 2 - some video and audio examples

Experiment: re-synthesizing a short voice recording (my own voice) with the spectral oscillator in Padshop 2, tweaking all sorts of parameters on the fly.

great stuff as always Simon
thanks for sharing!

Thanks for watching.

Gold Pad

Improvising with a Padshop 2 patch which layers one spectral and one granular oscillator.

Demo for a dual engine Padshop 2 preset, the modulation wheel and pitch bend action was recorded together with the Midi notes. Padhsop 2 really has become quite a modulation monster…

Demo for a fresh Padshop 2 patch, a dual engine preset using the new spectral oscillator, the modulation wheel shifts the focus to layer 2 and adds all sorts of modulations in layer 1.

Demo for a new Padshop 2 patch: Layer A: sample of a water drop inside a clay vase - spectral oscillator, Layer B: granular waterdrops. MW totally transforms the sound by introducing a tuned HP filter and distortion in B and adding various spectral modulations in A.

11 instances of Padshop 2 playing 11 different custom patches - 100% Padshop 2, no external effects used, some volume automation in LogicX.

Improvising with a single custom Padshop 2 patch - Mourning Voices. Some modulation wheel and aftertouch action while improvising. 100% Padshop 2.

8 fresh Padshop (2) patches in a slightly cinematic, ambient soundtrack type of thing. Plenty of modulation wheel action, some volume automation in LogicX, 100% Padshop 2.

Demo for a single patch from the upcoming sound library Polarities for Padshop 2 which uses flute and female voice, patch description embedded in the video.

Two Padshop 2 patches (Bouncing Mantra/Velocity Swirl) in action.

Four fresh Padshop 2 patches in action, some volume automation and modulation wheel action - slightly epic music…

Three fresh Padshop 2 patches in a dark ambient atmospheric track, some volume automation, modulation wheel and aftertouch action throughout the track.

Four Padshop 2 patches in a slightly melancholic demo track, 100% Padshop 2.

Demo for a Padshop 2 patch from the sound library Polarities (coming soon) which uses tempo-synced Kalimba loops inside the spectral oscillator.

We interrupt your Coronavirus to bring you some Padshop 2 music.

Five Padshop 2 patches in a slightly contemplative track, some volume automation in LogicX, modulation wheel action in some instances, no external effects used.

Demo for a single Padshop 2 patch in which both layers use the same sample of an e-bowed electric guitar with changing harmonics, detailed description inside. Some modulation wheel action, 100% PS2.

Improvising with a single, slightly cinematic Padshop 2 patch - 100% Padshop 2.

Flightless Bird - patch description:
Layer A: Field recording with aggravated penguins in a zoo, granular oscillator, three voices spread apart, VEL shifts grain position. LFO3 modulates LP cutoff/resonance + distortion amount, MW introduces modulation of grain duration via LFO3 and grain pitch via LFO4.
Layer B: Audio-morphed drone with the penguins in A, spectral oscillator, LFO1 modulates spectral position, playing overlapping notes will not re-trigger the sample. LFO2 modulates spread/hybrid filter cutoff, LFO3 modulates purity/formant. MW adds distortion and purity modulation via LFO4, its speed modulated by LFO3.

Improvising with a textural patch from the sound library Polarities.
Patch description: Meta-synthed clay drum texture in A (spectral), glass harp sequence played with mallets in Layer B (granular), MW transforms the sound from frozen to animated.
