Yep. I mean, yeah, this is literally how you do it.

Good PA tracks probably don't come out of doing this in a completely random manner without any thought about what you want the track to sound like or what sounds good and doesn't though.

Thinking comes after you’ve produced a bunch of noise. Hell, sometimes, you can have the viewer color their own experiences trying to convince themselves that there’s more to the noise than they think. It’s all about balancing the volume and the coherency, and then letting the listener draw their own lines to color in.

I'm much better at stage 5-like tracks than stage 4 for some reason.


iliekcats-

Same Like I need to get a specific size of each part and when to xut in stage 4, in stage 5 its just "GO ABSOLUTELY FUCKING CRAZY"


SubnauticaFan3

And Stage 6 is even easier since all you need to do is get a short sample and paulstretch it until it'll outlive us all


iliekcats-

Stage 6 is like stage 4 but calmer and paulstretched


mill-von-cat-jack

I feel like 5 is easier than 4 because you can pretty much just spam random effects and samples for 5, whereas 4 still needs that balance between clarity and chaos.


iliekcats-

Me using a python script I coded: you make PA tracks yourself?


ZenyX-

I need more details. How does it work? I'm not gonna use it, it just sounds extremely interesting


iliekcats-

basically, this is it in pseudocode: read input.mp3 make output.mp3 outputs = 0 until outputs = 100 (should be 150-200 seconds): increase "outputs" by 1 length = a random number from 1.5 to 2 take random part of input.mp3 of "length" seconds make a file called output(outputs).mp3 put the random part in output(outputs).mp3 combine all the parts and put it in output.mp3 hopefully you have a bit of knowledge of code lol also, output(outputs) basically makes it output1, output2, output 3... etc, until 100 outputs


TheZipCreator

I did a similar thing in Processing (probably the worst thing I could've done it in lmao) but instead of creating a file it just plays it live and then I just record it with audacity


tilsgee

Did you upload this on your github?


iliekcats-

I dont use github, but my code is very inefficient and sucks

[Someone already did this lmao](https://soundcloud.com/musictour69/guvbangsurubgwbuftthoyistalseleffevsingtublowxzhnanef?in=musictour69/sets/somewhere-out-the-beginning-of)


TheZipCreator

instead of using noise make the noise out of the tracks


ZenyX-

yeah, i know. what effects would you recommend, just heavy paulstretch and pitch lowering?


TheZipCreator

speed change, reverb, definitely a lot of scrambling also depends on the type of texture you're trying to go for


SubnauticaFan3

According to my reddit recap, this was the post I kept returning to through it all


ZenyX-

lmaooo mine was literally the FAQ of this sub


Alredy_Taken0

use fl studio


ZenyX-

Be more specific please What effects are good in fl studio? Is fl studio much more different than audacity? Which other interesting and useful effects does it have? What are its disadvantages?


Alredy_Taken0

Well It's much easier to cut up tracks in it And combined with Vital, a plugin that you can install separately, you can get that nice random noise FL also has much better reverb than audacity, and it's more adjustable FL may seem intimidating to a beginner, but trust me, it's much better than audacity FL's built in paramatic EQ is really good, much more robust than audacity, and is easier to understand imo


aeniamah

Audacity wasnt really made for music i feel. Fl studio is and is beginner friendly for new producers. I suggest experimenting with everything cause thats probably what kirby did.


iliekcats-

Audacity was made for editing music, PA is basically editing music.


Azumbrusque

You could make a record out of this


tilsgee

Add "Reverse" and "sidechain" And that's my version
