I've been spending the last hour playing aorund with some noise samples in the Sumi_matic (Max 4 version because the 5 version is clicking for some reason.)
I'll forever be amazed just how much you can get out of a simple little bit of noise.
Using a five-second 'proto-snare' noise sample, it is uploaded to the Sumi_matic's 8 loopers at fixed playback speeds; the first four at around 400 loops p.s - which is how the buzzing effect is emulated. The remaining four loops are set at around 90 loops p.s, giving these a more rumbling but slightly harmonic sound. The improvisation below is just me playing around with the playback speeds. I'm quite pleased and suprised by the results. Also the filter in Sumi_matic is set to a resonant envelope, hence the (erm) resonant sound.
