There are white noise bursts one could call an explosion. Then there are perfectly formed digital meets analog snappy explosions done right. Let the attack begin!

Check list: Quad multi-mode gate (CHECK!). Zorlon Cannon (CHECK!). QMMG Module (CHECK!). Voltage Controlled Slope Generator(CHECK!). Block of pork (CHECK!). Kid ready to stomp on something (CHECK!).

  5. The legendary Scott Walker actually used pork when recording his latest record, The Drift from 2006. On the trailer you can see them beating on flesh to get the right kind of sound. You can see the trailer for the movie here:

    The pork beating is about 3:10 in.
