Can anyone identify the rattly percussion sound that starts going off at 2:00 and 3:05 in 2x202? Sounds very familiar but I can't place it. Some old bit of gear. I think I think I remember it from an old Emu sound library disc labeled Electro Percussion that had samples of the 808, Dr rhythm, juno drums, ppg, and some other stuff.

Simmons Clap Trap

ooh yeah, spot on!

 

This clap caught my attention too. I was thinking it sounds like Elektron Analog Rytm clap? With lfo filter sweep or something. Also some kinda rimshot flam/fill at 1;58 lurking low in the 2x202 mix?

 

Elektron AR Clap demo at 12:25.

 

All percussion throughout the release sounds like TR9090 (909 clone) - very nice Cirklon sequencing techniques used to make it more alien (extreme flam and so on).

 

Don't think it's RYTM as within the credits it is mentioned that the version of his studio used to create these pieces was pre-Syro, and RYTM is a much more recent bit of kit.

I wonder how close they live. And now I also wonder if aphex is the guy in the mask in the video. AT first I thought: nah it's just a parent or uncle or something. But hey maybe not now.

Also happy as fuck for that kid. good stuff.

I think it's very ironic, back when the 2 Cheetah tracks were uploaded to Soundcloud, I adored Cheetah3 and saw 7 as "the other one", the boring and not-as-successful twin. However, hearing this EP in full, Cheetah7b is by far the best track he's released since Syro, the "boring" one is now knocking my socks off every time I play it. The pads are absolutely mind-blowing, sonically perfect, pleasingly nostalgic and absolutely lush beyond words. The bass drives the track forwards and the variety of crystal clear and interesting timbres that hit you absolutely makes the track a joy to put on. Defo the highlight for me, thanks Rich! :music:

You know I wonder if he brought his kids... surely? Otherwise aphex, who has 2 kids, left them (for a short time) to go hang out with another person's kid.

Same! It definitely has to do with the increased quality I think. Thing is it isn't as important for cheetah3 to be well mixed and mastered whereas 7 is so minimal it basically needs to be.

Yes this is top shelf Aphex, slower dirty funk at the start and then more Tuss-like funk in those last few tracks

I'm eating my hat here a little bit because I posted earlier that I wasn't really into this. I've got my sehnhesiers on and have been giving this EP a dedicated listen. It's great. There's lots going on in the spatial domain and lots of other subtle things keeping it interesting beyond the apparent sum of it's parts from a casual first listen.

I wonder if Ryan is listening to Aphex while he buys Aphex cds with Aphex.

It's funny the reaction to each release where people are expecting an album of face melters, tho when drukqs was released there was a lot of talk about it not being well considered/random. If Afx releases something as mental as Drukqs I’m sure there’s going to be a bunch of people who will then come out and say ‘what the fuk is this crazy shit, woah too far , he’s lost the plot!’ Classic ;)

yeh there are subtle changes on cheetah 7b. not sure what exactly but start of song for example has high hats right off the bat. its a tiny detail but they're there, they help establish a groove real quick and duck out before you can maybe even catch em. tiny detail but its a rad little difference... lel

 

more than syro or ods.. this ep is making me wanna dive back into analord.. analogue synth title aside.. this could totally be part of the analord series and itd barely stick out. groovier basslines i guess. but still. as an ep centered around a particular piece of kit, totally makes sense alongside analord 1 (with the synthy on the cover) .. analord 9 etc etc. cool stuffs :^>=

Yup. I'm with you on that one.

 

I'm particularly impressed with the opener, CHEETAHT2 [Ld spectrum]. When I'm listening to the first 1:30 or so i can hear a lot of detail and deliberate positioning and movement of sounds. Those claps that come in around 42 even.

 

Even as i type this im up to the 3 minute mark and just realising new sounds and riffs are still being introduced.

 

I'm going full fanboy here.

has anyone else come across the alternate version of this on soulseek? anyone know if it's fake or not? it's got a 4:27 version of CHEETAHT2 [Ld spectrum] and an additional 30 second track at the end. a couple of the other tracks are different too, but some are the same

Yeah agree feels a litte like a lost analord ep to me.. which is no bad thing! Really nice little e.p. think I will end up enjoying this more than ccAI 2 and ODS

i feel so stupid. The fake EP had some synth lines and that felt corny i was thinking "okay maybe the cheetah is so hard to program that it has to sound like this".
