Short video follow-up to my previous longer clip on atypical uses of STR-1 engine.

This time not spacey atmospheres, but what happens when one uses drum samples as pluck source:

Excellent! Thanks again, aether. Smile

I could see you weren't using the excitation filter here. Was the main filter in play at all? Thinking you would have a lot more opportunities to shape the sound (both pre- and post-string) using those too, even using the same sample.

Also curious what kind of camera you're using? The Kronos screen seems like one of the more difficult things to film well but you got a really nice image.

Thanks, I didn't use any filters only some reverb, so that everything that happens to the original sample's sound is caused by just the string - as I didn't want to 'cheat' or alter the sound starting from the drum.
So yes, the excitation filter could change it radically, in this case the noisy drum makes the really harpsichord-like end result, if using even different drum samples, the character of the sound gets much thinner or alters into something more plucked.
So indeed, one key word is experimentation Smile


Ah the camera, this is tedious, I just used my SLR in video mode on a tripod and a zoom lens, but I am a bit annoyed it is not high enough contrast on the display - and didn't post-process the video itself, maybe it could have more brightness and sharpness.

I wouldn't consider the filters to be cheating at all. Anything you can feed into it is fair game, right? But it's neat that you showed it unprocessed just to hear what it sounds like. Not at all like a drum anymore!

I thought your SLR did a pretty nice job really. A lot of videos I see of the Kronos the LCD comes out with weird polarization patterns on it, so at least your video didn't have that. I thought the contrast was fine. It was all good enough to not get in the way of getting your point across, which is what's most important.
