i made this sound in september 2003 - I used a Fairlight MFX 3 - a direct descendant of the first sampler ever made - and the best ever to this day editing software for ground breaking features and functions. Clip based EQ and Level which you could cross fade between made the use of automation almost redundant in precise to picture editing.

It also had a unique alternative jog function. You could loop 1 frame or so as you chose of sound at the orginal pitch which made it easy to find transient points.

I then 'grind' the play head over a solo'd sound and play this into a reverb unit. I have many of these accidental experiments and one day I shall make the fairlight pack!

until then enjoy this alien - from mars with Love :)

ps - you can do this experiment today! I found that I can use sound flower as an out put in Audio Finder. If you open a sample in the sample editor - you can recreate the fairlight jpg by grabbing the playback head in play. You may then route sound flower thru an input channel and get some unusual effects that are difficult to achieve.. If you can improve on this method let me know!
