Were you thinking of this? https://splitter.ai/ pretty incredible cutting edge stuff. really useful when remixing someone elses song, or wanting original vocal tracks for remakes etc.
No, this was a plugin that splits the music four ways. I think there are a few. Zynaptiq has a magical device that doesn't split them into separate output, but processes them separately so that you can alter tuning, tone and rhythm separately for different elements in real time. That's not something I need, but that does sound cool.

Mind you, with services like Splitter, you don't have to have all the software yourself.

Actually, the Abney in my name comes from Mr. Abney in the M. R. James story 'Lost Hearts'. If you know the story, you'll understand; if not, I shan't spoil it here. Though we are probably all too old to worry about spoilers for hundred-year-old ghost stories...
Though you posted this awhile back it sent me off on a study about this writer. Then Pier in a completely different thread brought up the Norwegian band Royksopp which I then discovered this dark gothic synth gem Skulls. Possibly up your alley?

Decided I may explore this genre in a song.

Royksopp have a couple of great tracks.

Another one I like from that album is this remix they did of a previous track of them:



"The Inevitable End" was the last album they made. They keep making music, but declared the album format dead (for them).

Very cool songs. Thanks for sharing.

I kept thinking @ that bearded old dude in Skulls -- seen him before. Then I 'membered: David Lynch's Twin Peaks Gotta Light man:


Now I'd certainly buy a Falcon Twin Peaks pack if one was available. That was one hell of a ride IMHO. :eek:

And now I'm in love with a music video! The music is very intriguing too. It has a strange power to it.

Agreed. The Skulls film director + editor (whomever they were) are next level; but, for a music video! Extremely well done.

Yesterday I toyed with Gentle Giant's Peel The Paint (1972). Suddenly Skulls popped up which has me thinking where I can take GG since at least one of its verses does a dark plummet:

Peel the paint
Look underneath
You'll see the same, the same old savage beast.
Strip the coats
The coats of time
And find mad eyes and see those sharpened teeth.
Nothing's been learned -
No nothing at all.
Don't be fooled, get up before you fall.


Fun fact: Not to send this thread off the rails; but, my homework on GG shows they were fans of RD Laing = hence some darker terrain.

Maybe for the sake of hewing to Falcon and this thread, I should use it here....

Connections: Falcon has layers that you can 'peel back', and some of it's filters have teeth - adjust resonance to sharpen. Also, psychiatrists are a lot like composers: they make stuff up and sometimes it sounds compelling.

Yet another connection: "Don't be fooled, get up before you fall" off your chair larfing at Bee's quips. :dancedance:
