2111 : To celebrate the hundredth birthday of the famous and still incredible OP-1, Jean-François Lelièvre and Hans Igel will be using this unequalled synth as the main tool for travelling into time and space. We remind you that S&T Race isn't about finishing first, but reaching the end at the same time while taking the most elegant paths in time and space...
Choose two Tape tracks for JF Lelièvre and H Igel.
Pan them right and left (not necessarily full left/right).
On these tracks, you'll have to record audio, but never at 100% (1:1) speed nor constant speed.
On the two other tracks, you might draw the audio landscape for the time race in normal speed, unless you want to add time-space artefacts.
The track must embed at least one sample that was captured while traveling.
Not while driving though !
While walking is OK enough
All audio must come from the OP-1 (sample-based drums or synths accepted)
You may sample the radio, especially if it fits the two main rules above.
Everything done within OP-1 obviously.
The track should be around 3:00 long.
Deadline is 10/10 10:10 GMT.
Here are a few techniques that both explain the concepts and give some ideas :
Non-constant speed :
Not 1:1 (100%) speed
- Tape mode, blue knob / arrows
- stutter effect (Tape mode, preset button 6)
- reverse effect (Tape mode, preset button 5)
- tape stop (Tape mode, preset button 4)
- break loops by setting loop start and end on the fly (Tape mode, preset buttons 1 and 2) and releasing it (preset button 3)
- use sample synth or drums engine with lfo on loop position to achieve granular effects
You may sample using album or drums sample engine and sample back on tape, cricket style.
- different tape speed (Tape mode, white knob)
- reverse playback (Tape mode, Shift+Play)
Or record a lot of experiments and cut it into pieces, ant style.
Any other technique that could fit non-constant / non 1:1 tape speed is perfectly ok.
