Before Finals

traciespencer-mixup.swf

So, my mom is hosting this Christmas Party for her co-workers right now. While hiding away from the party, I made this. I found this cool plugin chops up a given sequence and rearranges it according to a probability. It can also do things such as slow down a certain part, reverse it, or insert silence. So that's how the pros make so interesting tracks.

a little easier

ok, so i made it easier for visitors to listen to my loops. before, you had to click on a link and it popped open a new page to play the loop. this proved to be annoying, especially to me. so i figured out how to put it on the footer of my blog. if you scroll down, you'll find most if not all of the loops that i have done so far. i kinda did the same on myspace.

Happy Friggin Thanksgiving

flash041126_2

I made this loop from hearing some piano piece on TV. Went to a Thanksgiving dinner, came home and revised it.

I'm dedicating this to immature females. One in particular longs for a boyfriend, but craves the single life. It's frustrating seeing how she toils with me. Seeing if I will play that game. I can't believe she has the nerve of telling me that she misses me and then asking if I miss her. I have to get her out of my head. Everytime I see her, I feel sexual tension. Maybe I'll just handle it one day.

Ok, so instead of doing something more productive like homework, I decided to aggregate all my loops. I did get something done. My critique for mo co-op presentation. Anyway, here they are. I still have a few missing due to a computer move, but most of them are here. I don't have time to critique every loop I have, so I'll just start from every new one I make.

You may be wondering what is up with the numbers. Well it's the date. Year, month, and day followed by a revision number. Two aren't using the format because those are old. The good thing about using this format is that I can track my progression and see what trends I'm going through. Like right now, I'm sampling, using vstis, and plugins. A few months ago, I was strictly taking loops from other songs (sampling). A year ago, it was sounfonts. The genre that I adhere to varies from electronic to eclectic to hip-hop. As you can see (hear), right now it's hip-hop.

here are some loops i made throughout this past year. i still have a lot more to post up before putting up the new ones.

one thing that pissed me off last year was when the site that i submitted my loops to suddenly went down with no explanation. i had aggregated a large portion of my loops on that site and now i have to create all of it over again. damn you mediahead.com! on a lighter note, i recently did a search on my name on google and found one of my loops on a japanese site. cool.
