The inspiration was to create something that could simply and quickly take one sound and create many variations of it - both simple and extreme. Forge is setup to operate in a way that you can drag and drop in a single sample tweak Pitch, Timbre, Impact and Timing.
I sort of debated if this was well suited for my blog or not and then last week I saw an article on Pro Tools Expert discussing the studio lifestyle and it’s impacts on your health. This year I made a real effort to change some things in my life and I decided maybe it would be beneficial to share the changes and some results.
If you’re looking to build up your own personal library of source sounds it can take a little time.. it’s like a plant and it will need to be watered. Generally my approach to creating libraries isn’t so much “hey I’m going to make a metal library and it’s going to contain this this and this”. It comes together in a series of steps.
I started a project where my goal was to spend a short amount of time each night creating different sound design elements/effects. My goal was simply to have fun and free myself from normal project constraints. I'm happy to report that I consider my attempt successful. I wanted to take a moment to share my outcome and feelings on this with you - even if it is a little late.
My main focus was to create a library that had a very organic feel so I used minimal amounts of synthesis or processing. I started a new trello board and began breaking apart spell ideas into different categories and aesthetic layers.
