non-fedi looptober 

one of my coworkers decided to join in on and I'm really liking his loops! ambient, each in numbered sequence build on previous similarly numbered loop

check it out here (can tell soundcloud to loop; it doesn't by default): soundcloud.com/stvnrlly/sets/l

looptober process and ref 

uh oops *turkey vultures, not cultures

anwyay

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

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 notes 

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

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 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.
