If you have time take a listen and give Zootman some feedback.

I really love the bells, the ambient synths and the vocals especially. Dope!
Zootman replied 11th Jul 2022 - 1 year ago
Thanks man. I was pretty happy with this one. Haven't had much time to listen or compose lately, though I did post an ambient thing today, might feature it sometime. I'm also looking forward to another listen to those tracks you sent me! Cheers.

Well done! Both versions are good!

hi there, 'different' is a really nice compliment for me. Thanks a lot for the listen and comment. all the best.
crucethus 1st Dec 2021 19:00 - 2 years ago
Aces. The mix is great, instrument choices are also really good. Your mellow vox is hypnotizing. About 2:19 was a good tremolo effect stereo-wise. And then came back again at 3:00. A little coda at 4:00. good work.
Zootman replied 2nd Dec 2021 - 2 years ago
Hi Cru, thanks a lot. Despite the fairly serious lyric/story I had fun making this one. Good to know you thought it was OK. cheers Chris
BananaLu 30th Nov 2021 10:43 - 2 years ago
Great soundcape, entry into a dreamworld. Everything is so niced layered amazing vibe an feel you created. Today i was suprised to hear a track with your mellow voice. It has something natural that calms me down. It fits perfect to your beat. The lyrics are amazing , honest and real. I want to hear more of this kind.
Zootman replied 2nd Dec 2021 - 2 years ago
I read this poem in a book I keep by the toilet, and the words of the poem resonated with me. Sometimes I believe everyone in this world is fighting some sort of battle. Anyway, glad you found it calming, that was the effect I was trying for. All the best Chris.
mudhoen 30th Nov 2021 08:41 - 2 years ago
Great track and vocals. The mix is top notch. Love how you have implented the guitar and bells to add a lot of atmospheric vibe.
Zootman replied 2nd Dec 2021 - 2 years ago
Hi there, always good to hear the mix sounds OK. I have to mix mostly through headphones (or the car stereo!) so not always easy to know how it translates. Cheers Chris
TheFemiFactor 25th Nov 2021 06:22 - 2 years ago
Very smooth instrumental. Good job on the mix as well.
Zootman replied 28th Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
cool thanks for the listen and comment mate. Cheers.

It's fascinating, there's a little bit here in my opinion Pink Floyd)
Zootman replied 28th Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
fascinating, I like that!
CaptainSour69 24th Nov 2021 01:53 - 2 years ago
Hey Chris! yeah I took a break for a while. but I'm back now and I feel a hell of a lot better! how's everything going with you?
Zootman replied 24th Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Good to hear bro. I just flew out of Fiordland in the
chopper on a beautiful day so can't get much better! Don't have cell cover where we're staying so haven't been able to listen to your latest yet.
theHumps 22nd Nov 2021 04:23 - 2 years ago
I especially like the tremolo on the guitar. Kinda spacey, a bit trippy. Not a big fan of the drums but i do like the overall feel and atmosphere of the track. Vox sound decent in the mix, interesting lyrics too.


Zootman replied 28th Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Hi Wayne, thanks for the honest feedback. Might be right about the drums, maybe I'll look at trying some lofi type hits. Cheers
DijamMusic 22nd Nov 2021 02:01 - 2 years ago
Hey Chris.
You know we do lay carpets in our dunnies.
That should tell you something!
Lovely guitar play, mate.
Your voice is great here.
Well done
Zootman replied 22nd Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Ha ha, given the international flava here I thought a lot of people might not know what a dunny was! Cheers man.
CaptainSour69 22nd Nov 2021 01:56 - 2 years ago
Magical beyond all fairy doubt... You cleared air that mountains choked on my friend. I am in love with this style beat, it's so evanescent like shattering mists and your vox was so warm... I think that's where Cyberflares got the Led Zep Idea from. I am sorry about your pal man if there is any truth to this... My eyes were gleaming and my heart was enamored all in the same strokes... Keep at it brother!
Zootman replied 22nd Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Ah you're too kind. Funnily enough I was just about to send you this direct cause I hadn't heard from you here on the loop for ages. Had been wondering how u were m I hope all is well bro. Oh and not really based on any real event mostly
randomuser13 22nd Nov 2021 00:18 - 2 years ago
Love the vibes man! Dope work!
Zootman replied 22nd Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Thanks a lot man, and thanks for the listen and comment. That's a nice reward.
AtticElla 21st Nov 2021 18:36 - 2 years ago
Beautiful composition and I love your vocals. You've got a very soothing voice. Amazing guitar at 3:30 absolutely love that sound. Great listen!
Zootman replied 22nd Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Thank you very much, it's lovely to get some feedback and to hear someone enjoyed it. All the best to you.
RitajustRita 21st Nov 2021 10:53 - 2 years ago
Wow sounds cool!!
Your voice/song on it is just great.
That beat is awesome!!
Zootman replied 22nd Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Thanks Rita, I really liked it too. Must be satisfying being able to make your own beats as you do.
pseudoble 21st Nov 2021 09:52 - 2 years ago
Nice work mate - I just got myself some new monitors and this sounds great on them - the drums and the bass especially- though all this is very nice (again your vocal is reminding me of The Chills) really strangling that guitar but it fits well for the track and the sound production is excellent
Zootman replied 22nd Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Cheers Ian, the bass was off an organ vst, I used it on death of a pacifist track too, thought it sounded really rich and warm. When you gonna break out your Hammond?!
sirefox 21st Nov 2021 09:50 - 2 years ago
Bonita canción amigo Chris, me gusta mucho la intro. Buena voz, muy trabajada y agradable. La base musical está muy bien construida, igual que la mezcla, se oye muy nítido y claro. Gran pista hermano. Que tengas un buen día. Paz y salud.
Zootman replied 22nd Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Thanks Fantastic Mr Fox, glad it sounded good, I struggle with the production stuff so that's nice to hear. Good day to you.
bringerofDOOM 21st Nov 2021 06:22 - 2 years ago
Nice music box. Took a second to find the beat, but when it came in is was crystal clear. Nice deep vox and melodic choices. Did you sing the harmony or cheat?

Very nice instrumentation and mix all the way through. Tasteful breaks.

Had to download this one, you get a fav.
Zootman replied 21st Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
Hey there, cheers for the listen and fav. Funny considering our wee conversation re trap genre. Well...I have sung some harmonies before but not on this one. However I did record two separate vocals (i.e. I didn't use a doubler).I used a harmonizer (aegean music pitchproof harmonizer) freebie. It sounds completely artificial if you have too much wet mix in it, but I tried to use it just enough to colour the vox. I guess if you weren't sure I may have been subtle enough.
dimestop 21st Nov 2021 01:19 - 2 years ago
That synergy you talk of :)) strange mate, I love the vibe of this though, it's another crying out feel, great vocal mate great choice of poem well you liked my horn, I love your zen bells they are killer a great listen with wonderful instruments in zen
Zootman replied 21st Nov 2021 - 2 years ago
some days I think there's no such thing as chance, next day I believe the opposite. Yeah I wanted to tell a story with this one, though it isn't actually based on any real event or personal experience. I love the poem, it is in a book I keep next to the dunny (toilet) for when you want to sit and think.

Description : This song is my first attempt at trap(?) and was made ENTIRELY with Looperman loops in honor of this awesome site and also to demonstrate what you can do with Looperman loops :P. Compiled, edited/processed, mixed and roughly mastered in about 16 hours. I am collaborating with a Looperman rapper right now who will lay some verses on this and I will do the hook. In other words this is not a finished product just yet, but wanted y'alls opinions on it.

I was attempting to create a high-energy trap(?) beat with a blend of wubbiness. Let me know what you think.
SPECIAL THANKS to MODUSMusic (, Spivkurl (, danke (, Eli426 - (, 7venth12 (,smokyleopard (, UltraCryptik ( and Megapaul ( and xXSniperXx ( There was one more guy who had the rise loop that I used but I couldn't find him anywhere when I went back to search for him. Anyhoo, thanks to him too :P

I will update this when the vocals get laid on the track and I remix/remaster it. Cheers!

Feedback would be absolutely cool and if you want any of these Sounds, I'll load them up. (Just tell me in the comments).

Uhm, yeah, enjoy c:

Description : Step 1) Make a really repetitive beat (No Distortion).

Step 2) Make sure there's a long segment at the end of the beat of JUST THE BEAT because the actual song will only be like a min and 40 secs.

Step 3) For the "distortion", don't actually distort the beat. Most people think you distort the 808 to get the the XXXTENTACION sound, but that's wrong. Make sure the beat is PROPERLY mixed/mastered and THEN boost the bass frequencies until you reach your desired amount of distortion.
