This week i made a beat and spiced it up withsome orchestral elements... I watched a documentary on youtube where everyone showed his instrument... Samples are taken out of that vid...
Then my family came over for some days and it was really crowded here. I think i should have recorded my niece and my nephew which played on some of my instruments they are just four years old... but they loved the small guitar, which occurs to be my mandolin smile Maybe next time...
I think this is maybe a bit dark for times like this...

Hope you enjoy
and have a good week!

Nice way to get samples.  Yeah, I think you definitely should have recorded the kids messing around.  I did that a few weeks ago and it was really fun.  But as you said, perhaps next time. 

This does for sure have a dark vibe to it, and as much as I definitely have liked hearing some of the more upbeat tracks this week, there's always a place for ominousness in music as well.  Plus, the corona virus hysteria will eventually pass but recordings are forever.  Even if the mood doesn't totally click now, it certainly still will at some point.

Bit dark, but i think it is fitting for these times!
Love the violin(?) sounds! Adds to the drama!
Wash your hands! Stay safe!

This time i just dropped the vid into reaper cutted and stretched and pitched the sounds.
It really depends on the situation i love to sample on the Sp-404 but you don't have timestretching or pitchshifting... so i use it mostly when i start with the samples...
