Description
Here's the deal. I was working on a song and when I stopped playback this sound appeared. The song I was working on had no orchestral instruments or electronic instruments - it was only DOD drum loops and real instrument recordings of bass and guitar. I disabled the tracks one by one and still this sound persisted - so then I ran cable from my line out to my usb interface - opened a basic track and pressed record. After seven minutes or so I pressed stop. Here it is. Any idea what happened?

A great phenomena
I have had about same experience but I don't know what it is... I'll just use it in the song I was working on... It was like a big echo from one of the track I played on my keyboard... I'll had played a few notes from the beginning BUT the sound follow through the whole song.

Way too cool it is.

...ish!
I think you've hit it close to the nose here...
Sounds like other instruments feeding into a synth module and or an effects module that has the decay set to infinite or as much sustain as possible.
Whatever the case may be it sure is groovy.
Very movie soundtrackish.

EVP dude, EVP
Sometimes drums played into an atmospheric synth sounds a little like this. But it goes on and evolves a little too much for me to believe that's all there is to it.

Maybe an Apple programmer put an Easter Egg in GarageBand?

The notes seem to be limited to a reasonable gamut. Too much so to be entirely random...

This sounds soooo familiar. I remember making something like this sometime somewhere in some life.

Too bad about the distortion. It would be perfect otherwise...

so is it in the key of the song
you were doing? I've had mystery noises but nothing that extravagant. It is too bad about the distortion that's a real cool composition, it would be great for a documentary about space or whales.

bud said 3528 days ago (April 14th, 2008)
Not so sure of the key -
There was no controlling the sound in any way as far as I could tell - the distortion is unfortunate but I think of it as cosmic static.

when mistakes go good
Has a neat 2001 space oddessey sound.

This is a wild guess, but possibly infinite delay. Sometimes i create hidden washes in some of my tunes that I have a couple presets on one of my pedal boards that create something along this line. But why your computer did it, who knows.

it's something...but I ain't saying what
Play it backwards and see if there is a message from Mona Lisa or Sebastian Cabot Lodge in there. I am thinking you are the happy recipient of an oracle.

Is it possible you inadvertently had an iTunes music stream going? How about Real Audio, QuickTime, etc? Look in "recent files" in those apps.

Sounds like "Hearts of Space" from Sausilito, CA.

your golden stream
You see, Sunday's "Hearts of Space" program was called "Suspension". That perfectly describes your mystery stream.

Of course, I may be utterly and horribly wrong, in which case I will scratch a jagged penny across my teeth.

That's the funniest damn thing I've heard all week, and the mysterious sound is totally cool. I've had similar short bursts of reverb sound come through when I stop and then start a Logic track. It's like the reverb coding gets stuck in memory and won't clear until the song's time line actually plays out the reverb. I don't understand.

got this note in my mailbox -
the sound is like someone on the page said- the ambient reverb from various cords stuck together and the source code can not recognize the stoping of the midi control playing the instrument. basically a glitch in garageband that i think is really cool (sometimes, unless you are working on a good track and it throws you off). sometimes it is caused by a band source connection between interfaces. sorry to send anonymous...my accounts kept getting hacked so i stopped signing up. have talked to simon about it already.

Reminds me of Philip Glass stuff.

I even liked the distort at 2.55 & 4.15 to the end. Sounds like 'they' are trying to ask for help to save the planet. The 'build' at 6.26 is scary and dramatic. Why do I really like this?

The coolest thing about this is that you actually posted it and made me think about cyber music again.

The crazy thing is that it is indeed infinite - I only recorded 7 minutes - but it ran for over an hour and showed no signs of going away. It killed me to actually shut it down by quitting GB. In fact I feel a certain grief mournful loss as I think about it.

I've wanted just this thing since I played
with a Buchla synth years ago and maneged to create infinitely evolving tones - but nothing this beautiful. Is there a rig/plugin that can do this? I've been thinking about buying an electronic Tambura that's used to practice sitar and tabla.
here's a link http://www.radelindia.com/User_Products_QuickView.aspx

but I figure there must be a software version somewhere.

Thanks for taking an interest in this track.

Soft-synth tambura,
Bud, I think you could get a good tambura sound out of a Frequency Modulator synth, if you played with it to get the over-tones of the root note in the right places. Logic has a good FM synth, but I there must be others out there that cost less than the price of Logic.

Happy hunting,

Wow!

.. I had that happen .. something midi control related .. some duff info getting interpreted as midi .. but never sounded this good .. but then again .. I might not have as good things connected up via midi ..there is panning going on too.. there is moments of distorted passion .. really pretty darn good... nice variations too! :o)

Perhaps there is some Apple code secretly neural netting all music you do .. and 'composing' on the fly...based on your compositions .. dun dun daahhh..:o)

Incredibly new-age, spacey and atmospheric. Heck I couldn't write something this good intentionally.

Hey Bud, I think that this is that Bach or beethoven piece that's being played at some incredibly slow speed and it's supposed to take a few days (or quite a few hours or something like that) to play it in it's entirety. Someone had posted a link to it here quite awhile back.

Very cool Richard -
it does sound like Beethoven - but I never downloaded BEET STRETCH - nor do I have any Beethoven in my iTunes at the moment. Is it possible that just because I listened to it last year it resurfaced on my CBGB DEMO punk track? Or - Does the electronic ether of commingling undirected midi files and endless reverb sound like Beethoven?

Reinholt56 said 3527 days ago (April 15th, 2008)
I think....
It's the musical equivalent of Pi.

Seems obvious to me.

It could be some feedback effect but the variability of the noise tends to negate that.

I'll ask my invisible friend/buddy what they think. Usually if I ask a question they reply but it's always a blank page. Maybe this time it will be different or I might just not notice.

Other than that I'm as baffled as everyone else.

Take care and thanks for allowing us to listen.

Take care.

Pi - an infinite number -
and a great movie. That could be it.

My daughter Stella suggests that what we're hearing are "resulting tones" created by the interaction of frequencies creating something similar to harmonics and that the process is entropic and therefore never repeats. In the course of the hour that I listened to there appeared to be no repetition or dominant key. She also said it reminded her of the Sierpinsky Triangle.

The more I listen to it and then listen to the BEET STRETCH piece - the more I'm inclined to believe that it is indeed a random self perpetuating event resulting from some glitch in the GB software and the reverbs and delays I was using on the tracks that were playing before I paused.

MKVX said 3527 days ago (April 16th, 2008)
I know what it is
But i wont tell you!!!! Before this sound happened, did you happen to change a track plugin or setting as you played it on a keyboard? In garageband and Logic the last notes you play on an a MIDI track will be carried on infinitely if you switch the AU instrument or plugin of that track as you are playing on it. This usually stops if you press play, but it's happened indefinitely till i force quit the app.


BUT........ I would actually like to make this into a song! I love this sound. I'm picturing accompanying sounds already.

Could I do that?

Apple did it
you recall how on the Mac one of the voices in System Preferences.. set to Cellos - the tune played by the cellos speeching is "Dovregubbens hall" by Edward Greig

so there is precedent for Apple to hide stuff like this in their software

(BTW i've found lots of goofy stuff in the drum kits in the Remix JamPack)

maybe one of the atmospheric synths plays Beethoven if you hold one certain note for a very long time

stuck notes in a common occurance for me on GarageBand - probably for you too?

Texan, aka Stars of the Lid (Requiem for dying mothers). My all time favourite ambient artist and albums. This piece is just grand. Dissonants that make me feel eerie and still soothing, tranquil (especially when those low distorted strings kick in). A terrific Ambient piece. Well done Keith! The turtle's shell is all soft and flexible, now.

That is brilliant. A self-replicating computer making space ambient music that I would love to make. Thats amazing and very creepy.

Very spooky,
but also very beautiful, That's quite a Muse you have there Kevin. What ever it's cause, don't let it get away from you.

You do remember "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" don't you.

I'm not sure, but I think
this is a midi synth running on some stuck midi notes. I've had this happen before, or something very similar at least with my midi gear recently, and years ago.

How it kept sounding after the tracks were shut off is somewhat more of a mystery. On that, all I can think of was you had the system or a track set to listen on a submix or return line to the mains.

The variations could be part of the particular voice that was playing the stuck midi notes. Yo wouldn't normally hold the notes down this long so they may never have shown up before. Sometimes, at least on my older setups, the only way to shut it off was to actually turn off the offending synth. Now days most DAW's have a send all notes off switch or option to send out on all channels and all midi interfaces.

Just a guess on my part, but I do like the way it sounds, it is very ethereal to be sure.

Great sounds and a happy accident.

So, what was done with
this gift from you know not where? Did anyone play with it, clean it up and make a song? It is mesmerizing. Stanley Kubrick and Carl Sagan were trying to send a message that there are more things that are beyond our experience or imagination and that a tiny push can build to monumental force..or not.
I had to listen to it a couple times. Wow!

Hi, again...
Have you considered a reading of a poem over this, or children explaining what they think God is or the sounds of children laughing? I am addicted to this. Perhaps, a guided meditation... I so wish you'd find a use for this.
Well, It is putting me in a mellow state of mind, right now. It is a gift, as well as a phenomenon. Thanks! :)

Root Cause
What you are experiencing is called latent buffer write back. Its when the song you were working on has stuff left in the buffer and your software has crashed ... you are listening to whats called a feed back loop . the math for this loop is being provided by you buffer .. the audio by your crashed app :)
