Re: MP3 posted - some looping content


thanks for the feedback....I know the 'gear' and 'process' traps very
well....just lately I have been trying to get past it and be content to
use what I have to it's fullest capability. It's interesting - this is
the simplest track I have produced in a long time, but its the track I
am most happy with.

I used two throat singing samples I found online....each is processed
differently through AudioMulch. The one on the fadeout is barely
recognizable as a human voice I think. The drum loop was heavily altered
in AudioMulch (using a bunch of freeware VST filters). The main synth
riffs underlining the whole tune are my own loops that I played on a
K2000 keyboard, a jamman and then through heavy audiomulch processing. I
used Acid to assemble and sequence the audio loops. I'm a guitarist
mainly, but I didn't see how I could use guitar on this track.

You can see that I like to use Audiomulch....IMHO it's very useful at
processing loops and in particular making them more 'organic' 

[I'm forwarding this mail to the list - maybe it will be useful to others]
