Pent Up Demand (WB38)

Didnt really know what to do this week so just kinda phoned in whatever came to my mind. Turned out a little weird.

Used the MS2000 to clip a couple sound bites for my recorded element.

Spent about 30 minutes writing a bass part and drum loops. Took 10 minutes and put in a basic structure. It felt kinda stale but I spent about 20 minutes and recorded some silly stuff off the MS2000. Took another 30 minutes chopping the samples and lining them up into something that made sense. It was sounding ok but still stale so I went to go add some FX but instead accidentally adjusted the automation curve for the tempo. It sounded neat so i messed around with that for another 20 minutes and spent a final 10 minutes polishing the turd. Total work time about 2 hours!

BIG snare, lets gooo

not a turd at all, but that's a TURD ATTITUDE wink

LOVE the accidental tempo increase - and you came back to normal rather comfortably.  I gotta try that!

2 hours well spent.

You're right that was a turd attitude. :-X

The tempo thing was a nice surprise. Had to adjust my sample settings to make it work though. If you keep them pitch locked they get really glitchy fast but unbinding those things let it change the tempo smoothly without changing the pitch still. *shrugs* I need to dig into the details of how that works a bit better to understand whats happening there.
