Audio weirdness. .

So last night when I discovered the video for this

I decided that I wanted capture the audio and see if I could turn it into any type of a danceable track, or just sample some of the weirdness. . .

boot up audio workstation
Set it to ASIO Recording mode, verify audio is recording what you hear is what you get

load up sound forge and prep the record windows. . .

suddenly my computer is overloading with the most wonderfully god awful noise I've ever heard in my life. I can hear it reverbing and building on itself and getting more and more intense, I experiment and find that if I close the recording portion of the software the nosie ends, but comes back as soon as I arm the recording portion of the software.

I go back to the creative audio app and can record directly from there and do, without any issues, I rig that to record the what you hear is what you get, and arm the record in sound forge to attempt to record that amazing NOISE. it happens it starts recording but before I get a section I'm happy wit it locks my machine. . . HARD.

Requiring me to reboot. I'm at this point looking at daisy chaining my audio station, into my other box and using it to generate the noise, and see if I can feed it into the other box and record it. . .

Classic of Sony to attempt to plug Analogue Hole in this way, it's the first I've heard of it. . .

Probably monitoring feedback, with resulting hot signal making *gritty* nasty work of your ADC's.

Another possibility, and another fun glitch, overloading your machine with too many plug ins.. unique timestretchy granuloid glitchiness.

I keep a sampler on hand for things of this nature, and for swiping audio from protected net video sources, etc. Very handy. Any recording device that can access the audio stream will do nicely. =]

I don't think so, I'm honestly thinking it's something Sony did to V8 of soundforge. It only happened when I used the soundforge recording interface. With the record input in the Creative software set to what you hear.

With the Creative X-Fi's internal recording ap on the ASIO control panel, and te record input set to what you hear, I can record without any problems. . .

Hmm.. so this wouldn't be the sounds of dumptrucks humping, but more DRM humping?
