I've noticed that when I put slightly more time into a track I lose focus on the composition and get carried away with sound design and instrument experimentation which can be quite frustrating when you want to get a nicely put-together song... I just have to remind myself that I can reuse it into a nicer future composition.
Quite unhappy with this composition, but I made some nice sonic discoveries when fiddling around with the sound design and so forth.

Game Boy Advance + Nanoloop2 (Raw recording through sound interface +  the Audacity compressor)

Hope you all weeklybeaters had a good week and that this one will be even better!

Stormy regards,

Don't forget, recycling is good for the environment. The composition is okay, but it doesn't seem to go anywhere in a hurry.

Really nice sound design here!! Sorry you're unhappy with the composition; I think it's rather nice smile

I've gone the opposite way since I got M8, and am focusing more on composition/arrangement rather than sound design. It might be because I'm too lazy to play around with the tables tongue

I hear a tropical steel drum chiptune sound. Maybe just me but that was the first thing I thought of.
Definitely great sounds and the pacing has a retro feel that's I like smile

The sound design is the main force in what I do. The arrangement happens by chance. So, you did a very good job in here. Nice to listen to it and also been carried away.

I like tabla like deep drum sound. The chiptune lines are fine. It's interesting to hear about how you approach the work and the experiments that go with it. The experiments are half the fun of weekly beats!
