FMOF April Final...

by Chris Randall

Okay, it was a good one this month. I think we're all getting the hang of this. I couldn't download the one from deceptakahn. Please make sure to leave your loops where I can get them until you see the final one up, as I don't usually download all of 'em until I'm assembling the Big Mo. Also, a couple of the loops didn't line up correctly, time-wise (you'll hear 'em...) so make sure you export a total four measures. I make sure everyone fits _my_ 120 bpm four measures, but if I don't get the full four measures, there's not a lot I can do...

In any case, once again, we took a crap loop and turned it in to a seriously schizophrenic whole. Here 'tis. Here's the list of submissions:

1. Original Loop

2.Chris Randall

3. rugerseeds

4. Angstrom

5. Wade Alin

6. shamann

7. NPProject

8. Ronin

9. Gold Code

10. innerspace

11. Navs Abbany

12. Till

13. Martin Jenkins

14. Eric E

15. sdfgf asds

16. Mike Trobridge

17. BringMeUp

18. Chad Beckwith

19. skOre

20. jt

21. Chris Cortier

22. Scott Stepenuck

23. rabbitcrvshd

24. noisegen

25. Original Loop (faded out)

We're going to get extra experimental next month. A couple people have requested one with no beats, so I have to find some rhythmic, yet beatless, source material. That should be interesting.

fun stuff as always- a pretty good range of sounds this time around.

I especially dug the examples with strong melodic elements (mine was nothing like that unfortunately) - It sounds like next month, the challenge will be quite the opposite.

I'm looking forward to the 4th installment, fortunately we're already halfway there!

pretty good!!

I think this one has some real gems in, as always it's tough to connect creator to loop in the frenzy - but all are good IMO
I'm not convinced my two bars of half-time dub worked rythmically with the others despite being 4 bars at the original tempo.
lesson learned!

Next time I will write myself a memo noting: "Try downbeat, no reverbs and no glitch". I feel so calculable with this FOF thing...

me likes: 2,7,9,10,12,14,21,24
me really likes: 3,4,5,8,11,13,15,22

I may try my hands on a restructuring today. But whats that disturbing non-alignment with this track? is it starting a few milsecs to early, or is there something in between somewhere. I end up slicing it wrong all the time...
