    I saw another competition from Modnex but I thought it was a bit too complicated so I thought i'd revive the loop challenge.
    The rules are simple. Next poster posts three loops at random and I have to try and make a track out of it. The following poster does the same for them.
    You can cut them up, you can build round them but you have to use all three loops/accapellas
    Anyone up for it? We did it before and it produced some pretty funny results.
    Anyone up for it?

    Hey FR! You know we are good man so I am requesting some clarity. Your rules seem easy but the task is rather complicated. How shall we go about selecting random loops sir? From our own stock, other users, commercial royalty free loop packs that are cleared or a combination of them all? Also the root key and bpms might threaten to complicate the whole kit and caboodle FR. Care to clarify a bit more kind sir? Cheers!

    You can pick any loops you like as long as they're from this site. I don't think the BPM is really an issue as the challenge is about using your ears so the loops will have to be stretched or shrunk to fit whatever BPM you want to work with. The key was a bit of an issue last time but that's what makes it amusing (and you can also alter that in your DAW). You don't have to use the whole loop. You can cut it up and just use one second of it if you like.
    I just thought it would be fun and a good test of everyones listening skills. I don't mind being first up to attempt it but someone else has to pick the loops. You can be kind or you can make it really tricky. Up to you, but we did this before and a lot of the results were pretty darn good as far as I remember.

    Sounds like a cool plan! From your guidelines it sounds like you can use anything else, as long as you use the provided loops or pellas?

    Exactly. It doesn't matter how you use the loops but you have to find a way of incorporating all three (even if it's just a snippet of each)

    Thanks Phatkats, I shall download them and see what I can do.
    There's no deadline, just do it as quickly as you can.
    Here goes nothing.

    PS those loops are pretty good ones so hopefully I should be able to come up with something that resembles a tune.
    Now, who's going to post some for Phatkats?

    Okay, turns out the member M8TN has joined the competition providing me with three loops by the contact form. Apparently he is not able to post to the forums at this point. Hope that is okay within the rules in the comp. If you question his viability as a participant, you can contact him directly.

    Seems like they are all groove loops, which I believe are no longer accepted on looperman... so this should be interesting!

    Ok, letz have some fun

    Spivkurl : Fri 12th Dec 2014 : 4 years ago

    Sounds like a plan, man. I may do the same, only time delayed. Need to finish a song and have coffee first.

    very fine idea and nice sounding danke's loops! my new experimental (ambient?) track coming very soon!

    couldn't quite decide if your '(...)And when you get a minute,I know you and your buddies are busy kidnapping and mutilating cows, making crop circles and all kinds of other wacky stuf(...)'
    is a compliment, or?
    Anyway many thanks for providing the loops for the competition.
    And thanks for sharing your very kind thoughts.

    why don't upload more interesting music (out of the given material) instead of giving more challenge to the others and even more usless forum posts? ('why' is not a correct question by the way).

    Promenade, u know those aliens always doing wacky things, just picking on his Avatar, all in fun. I should've tried to find a yodelling acapella for him :p (make his head explode like mars attacks)
    Downloaded the loops I'll see what I can do. I like that acapella, never did get a chance try work with it before.

    "Spivkurl

    Confused by what you mean in every way... care to explain?

    probably I thought I was on some another forum thread and my comment has nothing to do with the loop challenge at all. Sorry for any confusion.

    Spivkurl : Sat 13th Dec 2014 : 4 years ago

    So FR, do you think M8TN should be involved in this thread, even considering the no forum access? Is anyone going to send him some loop links? Otherwise, someone else will need to provide me some loops. Just wondering.

  21. 666289
    FreeRadical : Sat 13th Dec 2014 : 4 years ago

    @Spiv - Yeah absolutely. I think EVERYONE should get involved in the thread so the more the merrier. Just go ahead and use the loops he sent you.
    I've only just started mine and so far it's a pile of shit so I can see this taking a while.

  22. 186161
    Spivkurl : Sat 13th Dec 2014 : 4 years ago

    Sounds like a plan! so who's on it like blue bonnet for M8TN?

    Here's a profile for contact form, or you can post it here and I can relay to him... whatever.

    Still haven't begun, but I think I will have a free moment in a moment.
