There wasn't a whole lot I was sure to do with this track that I didn't think somebody else might do. Nice sounds, but kinda slow and evolving. I ended up recording the entire track into the Morphagene, and then using clips of it to create ambience.

Played/recorded this live. All mistakes are mine, this was probably the fifth or sixth take... for live stuff practice definitely makes perfect, but I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to keep the patch together. Will probably write up a bit more for a blog post or something if anybody is interested in how all the parts are hooked up/working together.

I wasn't going to go back to this, but decided before I tear the patch down I'd take another stab at it, and personally I think this came out better.

Also, yes I realize I recorded this with the iPhone mic and not the Zoom H6... whoops... might take one last pass to try and get a better recording... but this is what I've got for now.

Hey, really interesting what you do and how Tao. :popcorn: Sorry to hear you don't really like the quest this week. Didn't want to come up with the 300th soul sample and thought I bring something challenging from outside of the box.
As I said you can come up with outside samples to bring your flavor. I was thinking about something like this:
Why don't you try to tweak just the ambience at once and than add a solid D&B Drumbreak? I think that would fit your track quite well!
Hope not everybody's having a hard time with the sample? :hmmm:Good Luck
