I’m experimenting with Camel Audio Alchemy to use it more like a modular synth. So this sound is all Alchemy.
In this work in progress, I resynthesized a 1 bar drum loop into Additive and Spectral engines. I then manually hacked on the additive partials to alter the harmonics over time from the original drum sound. I used the sequencer to modulate the pitch of the OSC.
I then route this through two filters in series. Filter 1 is low pass. Filter 2 is a ring modulator with drive (Alchemy is semi-modular and allows you to swap in ring mods and more in the filter slots). At the end of the signal chain I add Mod FX1 (Short delay with built-in LFO modulation) for some chorusing and a reverb.
All original creepy music. Segments on the show will include music and sound from: • Recordings of sound design cues I composed/produced for haunted houses • Recordings from the album NO GHOSTS. JUST FEAR.which released on Halloween last year. I’ll be offering behind-the-scenes notes on these horror soundscapes. • Live performance of songs on Theremin and synth • Creepy recordings from wonderful Denver Thereminists Victoria Lundy and Rick Reid.

As you can see Victoria Lundy, Darren Kramer, and I had a blast on air at KGNU. We’ll all be playing separate sets on on Aug 23rd but we’ll be doing the last song together which is going to be really fun.
