We were sitting around the table and enjoying a glass of wine when I noticed that twisting the cork on the corkscrew made a fascinating noise. I immediately had to run into the bathroom and make a quick recording with what I had available, the Sennheiser Ambeo Smart Headset, powered by Voice Record 7 on iOS 11.

The processing I applied for this montage involves reverse playback, Granular Synthesis with Max 7 and the petra objects, and some sampling with Kontakt and the FabFilter Timeless 2 delay plugin with a large amount of cross-feedback.

verena corkscrew


Recorded at: 96 kHz*, 24 Bit
Mastered at: 48 kHz, 24 Bit

*Note on the sample rate:
The Sennheiser Ambeo Smart Headset only supports sample rates up to 48 kHz, even if your recording app lets you record at higher sample rates. So in the future, I will stick to 48 kHz when recording with the headset.
