Notes:

For this year's field recording "julibrary", I wanted to challenge myself to create more sounds using my synths. I've always used them for more "musical" sounds so it required me to think about "what and how to" create the sound. initially, I wanted to make a laser "pew" using just the synth but Due to the limitations of my Arturia Minibrute (no envelope for pitch), I decided to use it to create a single transient that I could further manipulate to create a laser.


Once the transient recording were in reaper, I wanted to go in a sci-fi direction, taking heavy influence on the sound design of Returnal to create weird transient textures. Following a massive plugin chain later, I think that something cool got created.
