I am learning about Ableton/Live and play with the app almost every day. Here I took the jump rope recording, slowed it down, made a few adjustments, and it almost sounds like a drum kit.
Well, that was obviously much too easy. I shall think of something more difficult for next weekend.
Go here to watch the video.
The sound was recorded with a Rode NT4 microphone into a Sound Devices 722 recorder.
Here is sound #2. I imagine this should be easier than the first one.
The winner gets to pick a song or album from my Bandcamp catalog.
Since I posted Guess the Sound last week on Sunday I will post the second installment of this popular game tomorrow, Sunday, at noon Mountain Daylight Time.
Why does Sting wear a big hat and carry a cane in this video? Is the song about him or about someone else?

The song, from the 1987 album “Nothing Like the Sun”, is about Quentin Crisp, an Englishman who lived in New York for a number of years. A 2009 biographical film about Crisp was named Englishman In New York after Sting’s song.
