A lot of Zebrify in here, new FX unit from U-He that lets one use amplitude and pitch data from audio, among other things, as modulators in a Zebra-like patch structure.  Other than a somewhat percussive motif and a brassy bit at the end, all of the amplitude on all patches is sourced from me singing (some pretty heavy reverb used too).  I think this really changes the nature of the sound as it's not envelope-driven, there is movement in the amplitude that either consciously or sub-consciously audible has a different feel that I hope is appreciated Cheesy

The percussive motif is Zebra + a similar Zebrify patch adding transients whose amplitude is from percussive samples.  The brassy bit is a more or less random vocal a cappella track found in Creative Commons, chopped up and resequenced, and run through a Zebrify patch tracking the pitch and amplitude - there are characteristics in this sound in the end that I can't imagine ever getting from envelopes and LFOs etc.  I'd imagine a good vocalist could essentially play Zebrify with their voice.

Great soundscape! 

An interesting way to input sounds, i.e. via vocals.  It appears to me that you have mastered that. 

Two thumbs up on this one.  Itís a keeper.

Interesting approach of this months Kvr theme.
Using the voice like this certainly opens some very interesting possibilities.

Some unusual textures here. I am interested to see where you take it - the potential for development seems very promising. wOO
