Polyethylene butterflies

A short beat created in Renoise, chopping my own loops from iOS Samplr and DM1. The main beat was created on an Akai s3000xl and sequenced in Qtractor, then overdrived on reel to reel tape, then digitised and chopped.

Wish I had more time to develop this one. I'm so tired I fell asleep twice while trying to master the mix.

Soothing, and well-titled. Love the looping ending.

Thanks a lot Jim! The original title was creepier, though the piece ended being quite "positive" and chilled, so I modified it.

I used a non-synced lfo-driven low pass filter over a pitched down melodic sample with heavy delay. That "out of sync" phrase driven through the delay with the feedback nearly at the "endless repeats" limit gives the ilusion of looping yet still providing variation. Anyway, it was more like a "lucky find" that some concious decission (you need to manually "note off" long samples in a tracker, contrary to the traditional DAW approach... that made the long sample play to end, unadvertedly, and that gave me the "perfect" closing of the track)

Thanks Q-Rosh. This piece ended being so chilled almost by accident, but I'm quite happy with the humble result

Don't work too hard!  Nice zoned out piece here.

Agreed, the end could be it's own track!

soothing indeed and had a nice ambient_aphexish feel to it.  Nice work.

i like the quiet atmosphere and the minimalist at this piece, but it could be longer!
Thanks

This was one I had to come back to because it was playing in another tab and I just forgot I was listening to weekly beats, just thought this was on my discover weekly!
