looptober meta 

I keep making loops that I think aren't interesting or good enough for looptober and then I remembered for me just doing it anyway is the point of looptober

looptober process 

I liked when @makingarecord described what he did to make his, so I'm going to start doing this when I think it may be interesting!

this one started with me drumming onto a drum pad with a slipper on top and trying to get something with, ironically, a minimal cold wave drum machine feel. that's recorded to a loop pedal, which I then built over with some moog matriarch tones and wrote it to my hand recorder. I then did a bit of audio editing to get the levels right in audacity.

I spent time teaching myself to type in 9 to 5 as three different sequences into my sequencer on my moog, then got frustrated with lining them up into the loop pedal because of latency, so just shoved a bunch of things from both synths every which way. succes

I'm feeling pretty bleh about this looptober so decided to start doing prompts with @ranjit ! this one is pulled from oblique strategies. I wanted to just pick a note and see how interesting I could get the tone using the four oscillators in my matriarch. ended up with a few more notes and don't know if how lush it sounded on the machine translated into recording but it is late and my brick is nearing a wall

method is prob obvious, but I'm out of town and away from my synths for next few days! so next few loops are gonna be pretty different

I'm trying to touch the keyboard as little as possible lately and not use the sequencer at all if I can. so, I'm routing a bunch of outputs into other inputs and, right now, trying to get to a mechanical spacey sound—still not totally sure what's going on with this but here's what the matriarch looks like hah

looptober process and ref 

uh oops *turkey vultures, not cultures


I did a sequence on my subsequent 37 and pumped it in through the instrument input on my matriarch to pick up spacey vibes. I had a more majestic sounding loop for this but fucked it up and turkey vultures are creepy anyway so went that way. idk may post other one but prob not because this looper stops for no editing

looptober process 

all done on my phone with koala. samples are various dinner sounds - metal chopstick against wine glass, against another metal chopstick, shaking keys on metal chopstick, @jim eating a cracker, hitting table, etc

done 4 night bye

looptober note 

my friend made this cool audio visualization tool here: disambiguo.us/scenes/spiro and for his birthday we were asked to take videos of ourselves listening to music and using it. so, here is a basic sequence on my matriarch with it. ((and here's my video, don't tell him yet))

@christa I didn't know what to expect but it should have been this - that's very much industrial spoopy sounds 👍🏽

@christa it’s pretty lush even on my little ipad speakers

looptober notes 

@ranjit ok great. I mixed it on my laptop speakers but they are very old and tinny

@christa @jim that sounds right, yeah - definitely has some boss music vibes!
