I’ve skirted around the edges of “noise” for a while, I’d like to start using more system feedback in my recordings, but am a bit nervous about some of the risks. Mostly blowing out speakers, my ears, or burning out equipment (is this even possible?) I’m planning on using a passive matrix mixer with some delay pedals, OP-1 and a modular system (Phonogene, Echophon and Clouds are high on the list of feedback / sound sources).
One immediate question, I don’t have a hardware compressor, which would help me cut down on crazy feedback. If I run my feedback related signals through a ES-8, and use software compression, am I risking anything? Do I need to keep my feedback taming compression in its own box?
Posting this to studies as I’d love to see some ongoing noise-wrangling information.
