This is a Doris Day loop I messed with this month. I tried adding other sounds/instruments but never really got anywhere so I went back to this early simple version.

Is this a loop you originally made with tap on a record to bump the needle back into previous groove? Wonderful!

Nope, this is a new loop just done on the computer. I did use the original "Makes Him Strudel" tape on the record loop on a soundcloud track but never really finished it. I need to go and record some of those old record tape loops. I think there were some good Mel Torme ones I should rediscover.

Totally get back to those loops. That was great stuff!

i submitted a remix to my friend for a project he was putting together. i created too much material or potential material for it, and this is some of extra stuff. this thing ended up being noise, but i'm okay with that. i used a program called "resonance" which is intended to loop sounds with fx to make ambient music and pleasant environmental audio, like one of those noise boxes with the birds, wind, ocean, white noise, etc. its got a really nice distortion and flange.

Excellent noise track. So much buffing and welding. A strange rhythm that presents itself, then recedes, like a wave-- itself a singer or white noise.

I love the sounds that come in at 2:54. Nice track. I want to check out this program.

This is a song I wrote 20 years ago. It can be found on the Lesser Birds of Paradise recording A Suitable Frame. On the recording, we put in sound effects of the ocean. This live recording features and actual ocean (Atlantic). Peep the moving pictures at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXqEuQYMw3s

This is a cover of a Sunny Day Real estate song from the How it feels to be something on album. Also, I think my Yeti is breaking.

Hey my post has that crackling sound too. Love the "Wanna change everything" part! And, is that a 12-string in the little solo-y parts?

Thanks SpareMachine. And no it's just my acoustic guitar with old crappy strings, doubled, and with some reverb on it.

And by doubled I mean one playing a high note, one playing a low note. So...bootleg 12-string I guess.

Works for me. I had a friend (who was not a drummer) that put a drum kit on one of her first recordings by playing each part individually. One track bass drum, one track snare, one for hit hat, one for ride-- that sort of thing...
