Aphex Twin: Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2 EP

Recommended Posts

I try to have time to put my cd in 45 rpm or my vinyl in 45 rpm on soundforge or audacity... but I would honestly have time to have it in my archos...

Last night I set up two screens and watched godfather 1 and 2 at the same time - was awesome . Same guy in both movies so obviously this is how it's meant to be watched

Haha nice - seem to remember there being exactly the same theory when Drukqs came out. Big (unfounded) theory on here back in the day that the two CDs should be played at once and bits would sync up (rather than what actually resulted was a big old mess, with some bits being only slightly less of a mess)

 

 

 

but it works for all the friends episodes. this is obviously better than individual episodes.

does it affect the sound if converted mp3 files in mp3 45 rpm files? or better directly rip from vinyl?

ALL TRACKS THAT FIT TOGETHER



disk hat ALL prepared1mixed 13


snar2


diskhat1


disk aud1_12


diskhat2






THESE TWO TRACKS FIT TOGETHER APART FROM THE OTHER 5



hat 2b 2012b


0035 1-Audio






THESE TRACKS HAVE SOUNDS SIMILAR TO BOTH SETS OF MATCHING TRACKS



DISKPREPT4



hat5c 0001 rec-4



piano un1 arpeg



disk prep cleric band dance [slo]



DISKPREPT1






THIS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT SEEMS LIKE A STAND ALONE



piano un10 it happened (this is the hardest one to place)









I think they all fit together as one long song. Somehow. I think if they do not fit together as one long song they are meant to fit together some other way. Multiple songs? Why would the pairs that fit FIT so well (like the syro tracks) by coincidence? Just seems highly unlikely.



I love that Friends episode, but I hate Friends.

Instead of going insane trying to decipher the CCAI code, why not just load up traktor and freestyle it with 4 decks. Infinite possibilities.

depends what program you use. i haven't found a good free one for speed change yet. audacity isn't terrible but it isn't great.

 

if you can get a good rip from a record player then do that

As an EP perhaps?

Whatever you do, do not become a techno DJ. You could end up in a maximum security psychiatric unit.

Not sure I follow. What's difference between speeding up the WAVs on a computer vs playing the vinyl at 45?

it's clear from the soundcloud dump, if not before, that his writing practice involves getting some sounds/gear set up and then writing a bunch of songs which re-use a lot of the same sounds, melodies, themes, etc. also, as seen in the alt versions of the syro tracks, he must make a lot of alternate versions of each song (slower, faster, alt mixes etc)

so most likely these ccai tracks were all recorded at the same time, esp. since it would be so much work to set this stuff up and mic it all, and he made a lot of variations around the same theme rather than writing 13 completely unique songs. hence a lot of them are at the same tempo and have same/similar sounds etc. i doubt they were conceived with the idea that listeners would try to combine them later.

What's the point of making a CCAI mash-up when the tracks sound great as released/intended? Each to their own but seems like a bit of a waste of energy.

 

Also, that hybrid of the CIRCLONT tracks sounds fucking rubbish.

I did it in audacity and in soundforge. I converted mp3@320 in mp3@320 45 rpm and frankly, if we respect the options, the sound is good... No need to use for ripping vinyl 45 rpm...

 

 

audacity isn't terrible but it isn't great.

the only difference is the frequency used by reading the vinyl 33 rpm to 45 rpm. Moreover it may damage the vinyl if read her wrong speed...

the only damage you will inflict to a record by playing a 33 at 45 is the same as you would by playing it regularly at 33, that article is talking about playing a 33 at 78 and then slowing it down in audacity just to make the ripping process faster. 78 isn't used anymore because it's simply too fast and actually does damage equipment.

Yea, I don't have the vinyl. I bought the WAV files off Bleep and used Audacity's "change speed" tool with the 33 -> 45 RPM settings. I reckon this is equivalent to playing the EP at 45 on a deck but have now been led to believe there might be a better method to achieve this, and would like to know what that is. Cheers

nah, doing it like that is exactly the same as playing the record faster. you're good.

Transcoding is probably the biggest potential danger here.

24 bit wav -> 24 bit wav. no danger.

I'm not sure that it is, if you set your turntable to 45 the RIAA equalization in the preamp will be applied to the sped up signal whereas if you play it at 33 and then speed it up, you're speeding up a correctly equalized copy (see the linked page which puts this a lot clearer than I just did).
