CRASH. What’s that?



Flintpope’s experiments with COLLISION


Do you always fall back on your sample library and bash something into shape with Simpler? Why not go down the road of software instrument inspiration? Flintpope did, and his experiments with Ableton’s COLLISION produced some unexpected results which he has compiled into a self-installing pack called CRASH.

Ableton Collision is a math driven sound-modelling instrument co-authored with AAS  (designers of Chromaphone) and is capable of creating realistic tuned percussion, drums, cymbals, metallic hits, pipes and strings.

Not satisfied with all these goodies Flintpope experimented with the noise generator and varying releases/materials on the seven resonators (beam, marimba, string, membrane, plate, pipe, and tube) to get some original sounds that can take the listener out of the usual realm of percussive music. The results are interestingly grainy and LOFI, creating sound-spaces that vary between wide open and tightly focused in turn.

These thirty six CRASH presets are all presented in rack format with eight uniform controls throughout.
