9 Soundware Releases 1.316 Seconds
9 Soundware releases 1.316 Seconds.
Titled after the Guinness World Record for the shortest song ever recorded (“You Suffer” by Napalm Death), 1.316 Seconds by 9 Soundware is a collection of Sculpture-based Channel Strip setting files for Apple Logic Pro inspired by extreme music. Combining the string/exciter paradigm of Sculpture with the signal-contorting resources of Logic Pro, the sound set is composed of "simulations and abstractions of instrumentation associated with stupendously aggressive, challenging works," according to 9 Soundware.
1.316 Seconds is composed of 5 categories, “Down-tuned Guitar”, “Down-tuned Bass”, “Blast Beat”, “Death Growl”, and “Microsong”, each of which consists of 10 Channel Strip settings. Featuring .cst files designed to simulate machine gun-like mechanical riffs, as well as sustained chords, central to the sound set is “Down-tuned Guitar”. When sequenced with consecutive fifths and parallel octaves, using palm mute and sustaining sounds in conjunction, these Channel Strip settings allow for mockups of simple phrases. “Down-tuned Bass” is based on the timbres of distorted, droning bass guitars. Similarly, parallel octaves are designed to allow for the balance between tonality and cacophony when using these .cst files. The “Blast Beat” Channel Strip settings are abstractions of the blistering noise associated with the drumming technique.
The 1 MB download includes 50 .cst files.
