APPLIED ACOUSTICS Tassman
This file uses the three Modules of its name connected in series. The example shows a number of dynamic levels, and varying amounts of noise is applied to the flute.
Any type of Generator can be used with any of Tassman's Resonators. In this example, a pick is used to excite a beam. The decay frequency of the beam is changing on every note.
This transcription employs Tassman's default flute sound accompanied by a basic dulcimer patch.

THE SOUND GUY SFX Machine RT
Two instances of SFX Machine RT were used to produce the effects in this example. The first generated the sounds using the Water Drips preset. The second applied radical processing of various types to the drips generated by the first.
Tracking in the Unplugged World
Loretta Lynch clip: Company.mp3
This MP3 clip is taken from the Loretta Lynch song “Company” (Esway and Fellows-Mannion) off the band’s CD. Engineer Myles Boisen recorded this—and three other songs from the disc—live to 2-track, using a stereo pair of mics in a Blumlein configuration.
Collective Amnesia clip: Spelling Fuschia.mp3
Here’s an MP3 clip from Collective Amnesia of the song “Spelling Fuchsia” (Bowman). This was recorded live to 16-tracks of ADAT, with the musicians positioned fairly close together in a circle. The challenge was to minimize leakage, especially into the piano mic.
