a nastier, more extreme, randomizable remix of zee lovely carbon2 ensemble.

this version (v2) has snap randomization, synth randomization, and timbre controls (with randomization).

did i mention it was randomizable?

tends to generate noise-rich, unstable, 'experimental' sounds.

here's a fun working method: on your midi keyboard, press the low D key (midi 38) to randomize to a snap, then press the low C key (midi 36) over und over to randomize the snap settings until you hit a good sound.

enjoy. :-)

Being a noise junky, I love random sound generation and this is such a good way of opening up carbon to some quick experimentationb

WOW. Happy I didnt have my active speakers turned on, tried with headphones and my ears started itching. Its dynamic. And theres randomizer - no, theres TWO randomizers, one for snapshots. Very good atmo/experimental, but I found randomizer working very well to make some "standard sounds". I give 10.

so sorry! the timbre controls all have built in damping; turn them up and the overall signal amplitude goes down; turn them down and the signal amp goes up. also, there's a highpass filter at the end of the chain that cuts frequencies under 40 hz. given these two features i wouldn't have thought that boosting bass by 15 dB could damage a speaker.

the bass boost would have killed almost my loudspeakers

try setting the raNd aMt to .06 (or lower) to randomize to variants that retain more of the flavor of the originals than variants generated by the .15 setting i used for the upload.
