I've been obsessed with the early Whitehouse sound as of late. Everything up through their first couple 90s albums I guess. I enjoy the stuff that features more prominent synth dickery and weird atmospheres rather than their more rhythmic and "brutal" later work. I'm wondering what kind of tools and techniques I'd need to make something similar. I don't have a Wasp, but I've gotten some nice ear-piercing oscillations from a Korg Monotribe. I'd like to beef it up though. What kind of effects should I be looking into? I'm not much of a gear person. There's also the matter of vocals; I'd like to process them like mad.
Thanks for any help.
But your question has to do with a codification of The Gear That Is Appropriate For A PE Setup
And this board generally isn't into defining things like that. In its most useful moments it's more about sprawling discussions about various ways people have experimented with types of gear to break the devices OUT of people's prior expectations for them.
Like I bet we could have an interesting (but slow moving) thread on vocal processing in general. hardware, software, etc. But I don't know if the question of beefing up your monotribe to sound like early Whitehouse is something we'd be as good at targeting.
But yeah, RFKorp is tellin it like it is. If we're all unlucky, this very thread will turn into a discussion about what we tend to discuss and why, and what it all means, for another 10 pages... Of course, the moderator will have split the thread off at the post that defined the change of direction, so it will no longer be your thread, but a child of your thread, and probably one that you would as soon disown as attempt to gauge the merits of.

I guess my topic was far too narrow and poorly-worded, so I apologize. I wasn't looking for a hard and fast definition of "the right way" to do PE, but I was wondering about general techniques for making sounds commonly found in the genre. Even that probably doesn't make for a very good discussion though.
I have a bad habit of measuring a dozen times before cutting. I always seek loads of information before doing anything. It makes sense for something like buying a car or installing a new operating system, but it probably isn't as essential in noise music. I'll just shut up and do it.
This thread can be about whatever you'd like instead.
Same "issue" here - luckily I have no ambition to be a musician - it does work in my engineering day jobass wrote: I have a bad habit of measuring a dozen times before cutting.

Is that a good tip? Seems kind of rude to boil noise down to a pedal genre
