Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Spyduck for “Microcosm”:
Very effective, and even infective indeed...

Did a download, I might play around with this one to see what I can do...!

I'll report back. Also, what do you do once you have the square wave?

I like this part at the end, especially -- has an insane circus like quality to it -- right up my alley :D

Main effect with the square wave is just a chorus device in reason that's heavily detuned. Basically means it's processed to sound like 16 copies of the instrument are playing at almost the same time, with maybe a couple ms apart, each one slightly detuned from the original note. Sort of like hearing a bunch of people sing the same song at the same time but each voice has different tonalities to them. Not sure how that would be accomplished in audacity. Maybe just copy a square wave 16 times, barely change the pitch of each bit or loudness of certain wavelengths with an eq, then super impose them over your main line in timing ever so slightly off the main tempo.

Scratch that, it was the Unison device. The chorus/flanger would have a much different effect.

Interesting technique. I started messing around with just square waves, and here's what came of it, last night, obviously just a concept at this point: But I'll take your ideas into account -- thanks!
