System Heavy is an electronic act from the UK, and they’ve recently shared with us their last tune Humming Bird, that you can freely download/listen. In this track they used a lot of Ohmicide:Melohman distortion and several instances of the OhmBoyz delay. Enjoyed their sound? There is more at their myspace profile…

One month ago we posted dutch artist Remco’s demo track for the Symptohm:Melohman PE and now he shows up again, this time showing his experiments with the Ohmicide:Melohman distortion. His Ohmicide demo track shows that this distortion – despite what many could think – is not only suitable for hard and agressive distortion grain. The owners of this unit know that the Ohmicide palette goes far beyond that, crossing the huge field of subtle distortion and ‘distortion to add warmth’. This demo shows us some percussive elements dictating the rhythm for some atmosphere/texture sounds, while the Ohmicide helps creating a global ‘soul’ for the whole landscape, the final result being anything but cold…
UK born and Swiss-based audio technician Jonathan Reamonn made a cool demo track for the Ohmicide:Melohman, which you can download here. This track is a great example that the Ohmicide distortion is far away from being limited to Rock or any other specific music genre. Jonathan’s distorted digital basses and distorted IDM beats are everything but cold, and if you like it and would want to taste more of his music, take a look at his site.
British hard house producer – and Ohm Force plug-ins’ heavy user – Tim Vision has recently released a new track on Spinball Records called “Overdrive“, and there’s no doubt that a guy who calls his track this way must be an Ohmicide:Melohman fan. So we asked him to show us what kind of distortion work he’s operating for his new track – in which he’s working right now – and he sent us these 3 audio examples: the original loop, the distorted version after processing with the Ohmicide:Melohman, than some additional liquid spices added by inserting a Mobilohm in the insert chain.
The original synth lead line:
With Ohmicide + Mobilohm:
You might already know what our heavy weight plug-ins such as the Quad Frohmage and Ohmicide:Melohman are about, but have you already wanted to know more about other Ohm Force gear like the Hematohm frequency shifter and the Mobilohm phaser? There’s much less buzz around these too, indeed, what does not mean that they’re less powerful than the others. They’re the kind of spice that masses will maybe miss but that the ‘chefs’ will put in a privileged place in their shelfs, take it that way. Ginno Legaspi from Wusik Sound Magazine is one of these sound chefs, and has recently reviewed these two units, sharing his impressions on the magazine’s last edition. You can read it for free here, and benefit from the moment to check out the whole mag, there’s a lot of interesting things there…
Zombies have always been excellent company for a weekend. A point of view that our ohmfriend John H. Van Eaton very probably shares, specially after his recent work on the FX and soundtrack for new Urbanchillers’ horror comedy movie “E-Discordia Dating for Zombies & the Undead” trailer. A lot of Symptohm:Melohman, several Ohmicide:Melohman spices, some Quad Frohmage sugar and a loads and loads of blood!
Being a Celldweller fan. It’s the kind of thing we think that happens only at other people’s families, until the day we surprisingly see it happening within our own kingdom. And what should we do, then? Well, if you think we’re going to lock a friend in one of Ohm Force cave’s abandoned dark rooms and feed him with a defrosted pizza, you’re completely mistaken! We’re open minded people and we do accept – and respect – our friends as they are. The proof is that we’re even sponsoring FIXT’s current Celldweller remix contest, which offers prizes from Ohm Force, Fabfilter and Cakewalk: if you appreciate his electronic-and-almost-trance-metal-rock, don’t miss this opportunity to have fun, show your skills and grab some gear. Nevertheless, Klayton/Celdweller is a first-time Ohmicide:Melohman user, what shows that he’s indeed a clever guy. And it’s true that he sculpted some very nice distorted landscapes in his tunes, which fits very well with his…. euh… we better stop here, otherwise you’ll start to think that there’s more than one fan here. Not at all, everything is under control!
