Mutable Instruments Clouds as a Lo-fi Tape Delay

Published on Jan 1, 2018 r beny

"Demonstration of Mutable Instruments Clouds Texture Synthesizer as a Lo-fi Tape Delay. Lovely warble and disintegration on the repeats. Reverb, filtering and diffusion for tone and texture control.

Note: works best on the Parasite Firmware pre-V2.0. To access the delay, it is the third mode known as Looping Delay. The quality setting should be set to one of the 8-bit modes. Position sets delay time. Texture is a multimode filter. Density adds diffusion, I personally like it at 0. Size has no effect unless the buffer is frozen.

Video starts with a simple monophonic sawtooth arp sequence from the Novation Peak. I slowly bring in the wet signal with the Blend control. I also bring up the feedback and reverb with the Blend control. There is a sweet spot for feedback. Too much feedback and things get out of control. Near the end, I take the incoming signal out and just let the repeats feedback into themselves before freezing the buffer and playing with that for a bit."
