Short Tones, Long Tails


don’t even bother
searching through the preset sounds

just work with the default,
with what you have,
simple and unadorned.

It’s a saw wave sound,
not so special or shaped
to your liking,
but what does your taste
have to do with it?

Add an effect to color the wave,
maybe a reverb to give it space,
crank it up to outrage proportion,
to make the sound longer,
give it a tail.

No searching, just play with it–
the sound that a minute ago
was hardly cool
because it had nothing to do with you.
