For a little while now I've been trying to get a good sound for these 'bugs'. They look a bit more like moths but they're out and about during the day.
Anyway I don't want a bug sound. It can't have that annoying buzzzz. They have a supernatural aura, they help lead the main character toward a necessary object in her journey. They also show up in a flashback over 50 years earlier doing the same thing to another person.
I've gone through a few designs, none of wich I like. They all still sound too buzzy. I'm thinking of focusing more on the wings. If a butterfly's wings made noise, what would they sound like? So does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone made an effect like this?
My next plan is to record a note pad's pages being flipped by my thumb. Then maybe reverse that sound. Or use a sound that I can put through a transformer or LFO.
