AudioThing Gong Amp takes an exciting experimental amplifier from the beginnings of electronic music to the plug-in world of today.
Inspired by sound designer Maurice Martenot who in 1932 put a gong behind the amplifier circuitry which resulted in resonances and brilliant overtones that excite audiences to this day. Using a complex mixture of convolution processing, physical modeling, and feedback systems, AudioThing created an instrument that is true to the responsiveness of the original idea and even transcends it in terms of sound design possibilities.
You can choose from three recording positions: mono mic, stereo mics, and a unique “resonator” effect AudioThing designed. Try mono for a “documentary” perspective, stereo for beautiful ribbon mic width, and hear reverb feeding into reverb in “resonator” mode. Try upping the input overdrive for added overtones, and use the soft clip for output distortions.
Taking a page from the experimental percussionists’ handbook, you can add thick and thin chains to the Gong. The sympathetic rattling creates effects that range from a soft shimmer to clangorous noise.
Adjust the sound of Gong Amp to your playing style. Choose from two different gain settings on the gong with “Dynamic”. Add modulations for a slightly more psychedelic sound. Modulation adds liveliness as well as subtle stereo width as if the gong was swaying. It runs both pre-Gong and post-Gong, so leave this at low setting for purity and turn it up to tune in. Turn on “howl” to hear Gong Amp struggle beautifully when overloaded. Experiment with extreme pitch manipulations for cinematic effects.
With Trip Mode, you can add automated crossfading between the three signal positions of mono, stereo and resonate. Use spread to adjust the rhythmic shift. From gentle drifts that last minutes to fast rotary effects, this is a sound designer’s dream.
