Description : one of the adventures i had during my intergalactic traveling days was landing on this little planet called luthein v. the planet was being occupied by a large number of cyborg invaders from the dying world of angi prime. moved by the plight of the luthiesians and armed with the most advanced sonic weapons, i brought destruction to the 30 million cyborg oppressors.
drums by me, rest are premade loops. phaser set to kill to turn a guitar loop into alien subspace transmissions.
Description : years ago, i had taken part in the evacuation of suphesia. the binary stars the planet orbited were about to supernova. launching from the port city of orizomis with five thousand or so suphesians on board, i took one last look at the sprawling, majestic metropolis. orizomis connected with murise, then led into obvialt. it created the supercity of nemodatia, covering just about all of the largest continent. it would be the last time i would ever see it all. the flash from the supernova was so bright, even at 3 lightyears out i had to shield my eyes.
a practice track in using different eq-ing techniques, mid-side mastering with ozone and reverb to add depth. all loops from magix soundpool volume 12, jazz 12.
Description : no complicated back story for this one. just a song i did during the summer after watching a tut on sampling and slicing to midi in live. the title has meaning tho. i think i could of done a better job with the percussion.
Description : title says it all. nice simple groove thats sure to make you nod. pull out the smoke tool for this one. if you havent heard of stutter edit, your about to. its doin all the craziness on the drums. say somethin if its too quiet, tried somethin different with ozone, might need to be changed.
Description : laid back track to control the head drift. first fruits after planting the maschine. me on the pads, used sounds from n/1 and some i already had.
Description : title:
things not to do when 7 or 8 dudes rush in the bank with large caliber pistols and automatics
next time you find yourself in the midst of a bank hold up, just remember two things: follow directions and dont act a hero, that way everyone gets to go home.
chopped up some loops to get the sounds i wanted then recorded pad hits with maschine.
Description : im startin to feel right at home on the maschine now. this one took 5 days, just kept addin to it. i figured out how to load vsti's, used 5 different synths on this.hopefully its as good for you as it is for me.
Description : just about all last week i was sick with the flu. when i got in from work on friday, after a nap and some grub, i forced myself to get on the maschine and make somethin. this is that somethin. worked on it all weekend.
now, sit back, relax, burn one if you got it and listen to this chill track.
Description : woke up on sunday, made a bacon and cheese omelet with some waffles and just started diggin. couple hours later, had the bass and melodies chopped up nice.added the drums (took forever to find the right kick at first, thn i had to find the right snare. all that it needed was some fx, but after listin to it enough, took em all off and used alloy on everything. exported as a wav so i could run it through ableton for some tempo changes and to hit it with ozone. mixed it over speakers, but sounds really good on headphones with large frequency range, especially toward the low\low-mid range.
Description : if you had a genesis back in 92 you should recognize this(round 1-2, streets of rage 2). loop sliced with perfect cadence, left it pretty much alone and added the drums. used alloy on everything, different settings of course. i really liked how the snare turned out, sounds like its imploding. kinda a work in progress, i just couldnt think of what else to put with it. ive tried everything from pads and synths to brass and sfx, nothin seems to fit with it. open to suggestions.
Description : the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.
sliced up some wurly and guitar loops from smokers delight. the bass is tone projects bassline. maschine preset drum and bongo kits, me on the pads.
just a rough mix, excuse the levels. gettin together some more stuff to add to it.
Description : hydrostereoponics.
done on the maschine.
used some advice from madlib and sampled some max roach.
updated: remixed, should be louder. needs vocals.
Description : done on the maschine, the bass is strong with this one, a sub is recommended. the kick is bruce lee strength, and contrasts with the smooth deep wideness of the bass. the snare explodes randomly, maybe it implodes. 2 instances of albino and 1 of massive. main strings are from the intro of 'somewhere over the rainbow' by poppa john creech, if youve never heard of him, check him out, real mean on the fiddle. other strings from orchestral classic strings. feedback on the mix is appreciated.
Description : with subdued tears, she smiled, batted her eylashes and sore nanonoko told me everything was fine. completely distracted, i believed her. it wasnt until her body was found and the note was read that the truth i had known all along but doubted because of her sincerity was made apparent. i once believed that i could help her, that i could make her happy and protect her from the demons she hid. how foolish. she is gone, and i am left thinking if only i had reacted differently. now, forever a tribute to my failure.
all premade loops, from magix soundpool jazz vol. 12 and loopmasters jazz world. mixed with ozone 5, using tumbleweed's technique to add richness. read more in this post.
Description : lab kinda cloudy. chopped loops, dynamics and eq, stereo imaging, a couple reverbs, some sfx sweeps and noise, oh, editing stutter is stutter edit. secret ingredient added to provide some weirdness.
check it, dig it, cool.
Description : reviving old songs, one i started about 2 years ago. finnally finished it last night with the help of the taoism drunkard aka myself while im smashed.
Description : payback always feels good. especially when you set up a plan and it all works flawlessly. relish in the humiliation your victim radiates, crave the tears they weep, grinch grin when they look at you. oh they know it was you, but you have crushed their will. they will remember the event forever. go to sleep that night with a feeling of accomplishment.
laid back sounds over a solid groove, some jazz soul hop. all loops from e-lab. simple mixing. stereo imaging, copious amounts of eq, a little phaser, some airy reverb. had to make the drums a little crunchy to cover the vinyl clicks and cracks in the main loop. x click did a good job at smoothing them out, but it didnt get rid of them completely.
Description : thanks to shatner for
uploading the pella "fallen samurai" https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/1019
thanks to psyhi for the fat albert samples.
back on the maschine, i was workin on dips over the weekend and heard a song by shatner the other day called wax on wax off. loved the flow, so i checked to see if he had it as a pella. sho nuff, then i put it over dips to see if it would work. needed a couple chops here and there but it fit. worked on the mixin the last couple of days. dont work with vocals too much so i dont know to much about mixin them properly. lookin for feedback/suggestions on the mix.
UPDATED: looked at some vocal mixing tips and re mixed the whole song, hopefully it sounds better.
Description : i always have green tea on hand. twinngs, bigalo, gold peak, tradewinds, wawa or rosenburgers. next to whiskey, it is my ichiban choice for gettin rid of thirst. what does green tea and this song have in common? went through an entire half gallon while i did this. drum loop from one of the packets in the underground sound lab, went to work on em with the ginsu. everything else is from either primeloops phantomspheres or dubstep illusions. simple mixing, played around with a lot of mid-side eq-ing, dynamics, stereo imaging and reverbs.
take a listen, hope you enjoy it.
callin it fusion for lack of a proper genre. drunkard style maybe?
Description : thanks to braindedmusic for uploadin the pella 'just yesterday' https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/3460
simplicity. a few kicks, a couple snares, a long delayed crash, deep bass and vocals. didnt want to detract from the message in brainded's lyrics. powerful, and completely relatable. hope you enjoy it and let me know how the mix sounds.
Description : BOOOOOOOOOO! for the loop track challenge round 2,
loops from loopmasters ambient dubstep and prime loops dubstep illusions. abletons fade to gray adds apparitions of pan and reverb, corpus goes bump in the night. simple cuts on the drums with dblueglitch manifesting while your in the shower.
Description : the glass piece boogie. if you got that big bag of good grizzle, do it up and get down.
stretching on maschine was long overdue. makes things so much nicer.
edit: foggy room groove is now the metacognition.
same still applies. i think i fixed what was off. it was the main sample track that i turned into a bass out of place by a couple of bars.
so is it possible to know that you know that you know? hypermetacognition?
Description : put together in machine with pad hits from elab. sub kicks became a cheesy bassline. ableton effects in full stereo. turn it up, and enjoy your nite cap.
Description : simply the best car in gran turismo 2. probably the best car in any racing game ever. anyone that remembers playin that game should recognize this. find comfort in the warm waves of nostalgia that follow.
Description : federal intergalactic speed regulations mandate that all civilian and non active military and intelligence vessels be limited to a maximum speed of 4 times the speed of light. its slow, but fast enough to get you from mitos space station in orbit around condrion all the way to ermes in about the same time as it takes this song to play.
