Scream Patch Tutorial

video upload by Peter Speer

"A 'Scream Synthesis' patch technique, utilizing audio-rate FM and feedback.

Audio begins at the 1 minute mark. It's scary stuff. Heads up.

This video was originally filmed and posted to Vimeo in 2013, and is being re-posted here for ease of sharing.

The patch was inspired by a post Grant Richter made on the MW forum about the Malekko Anti-Oscillator's FM normalizations alongside that module's release in 2009, specifically the quote:

'When you feed back the output to the input of most any circuit, you form chaotic functions. Chaotic functions usually 'bifircate', that is split in two. The places where the chaos is momentarily stable are called 'attractors', when you hear frequency warbling or jumping, strange instabilities, it is switching between attractors at an audible rate, this is very common in nature, so if you hear any wounded animal sounds or scarier things, we are just copying the math from mother nature.'

Take this technique and make something cool with it!"
