Never having been a loop-based producer, I wish I had found this goldmine of a site sooner. That being said...I've been into music longer than I want to admit. Started out young on the piano and brass, later ditching those for a guitar. Playing in bands, running a make shift recording studio and fooling around with softsynths has been the bulk of it, but over the last few months I've been having a go at writing beats. Whodathunk!
