Kyma rocks
Album: 23 Sep 2006
By: ScottHolden


http://www.scottholden.com

Scott Holden's debut album, SCOTT, demonstrates that Kyma is not just for sound effects. Kyma was used throughout the album for subtle processing that enhances rather than contradicts the raw bluesy style. Kyma connoisseurs will appreciate the chopper applied to the guitar part on "Spooky" and the swarm-following harmonizer on "No Stone Unturned". More subtle and more pervasive is the Inverse Compressor that Holden designed and applied to all the drums, and the multiband compressor with random settings that he employs as a permanent part of his guitar effects loop. His lightly processed vocals are routed through cascading compressors and delay filters in Kyma and his custom-designed harmonizer is so realistic that most listeners will assume it is multi-tracking.
