Do You Believe in "Thumb Hypnotism"? (Hear it!)

Spoken Word with Electronics is an audio series delivering to you a two side recording of unusual stories paired with vintage modular electronic sounds

Hi, everyone – Welcome back to the show. This week is all about Thumb Hypnosis. That might provide more questions than answers. Specifically, "Thumb Hypnosis" is a 1960s recording (I'm presuming, it's undated) that arrived to me with other hypnotism records some years ago. I love self-pressed hypnotism recordings, and "Thumb Hypnosis" is one of the best out there. It answers no questions. It solves all problems. Thumb!

Enjoying THUMB HYPNOSIS, raw audio is provided in track two, with a full reworking of sampling opportunities in track three. Audio is processed through a Radio Music module, 907 Fixed Filter Bank, and an SSL Samplecorder. Also, a quick demo of a Korg MicroSampler is provided, which is one of the nicest and most playable pieces of Korg hardware ever made, sadly pulled from production after less than a year on the market. It's a GREAT sampler, very similar to an E-MU. So this episode covers a lot of sampling hardware, processes, and tips.

Thanks and have a good week, Ethan
