Came up with this drinking vodka in the shower last night. Had an awesome Charles Ivesish trumpet part that I decided wasn't so awesome this morning, so it got cut.

The LAME encoder sucks, but only because MP3s suck. So there is a little dead space at the beginning of the loop.

Interesting

So I'm.not one too fond of loops but this one you did pretty good with and tells me you could really make this into a full fledges song but you really need to stretch this out and add more content make it longer with the ambient sound you have enough to really roll out a deep song here so try it out and let it shine through

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
Make it longer and more like a song

It loops perfectly! Sounds very toned down and ambient, very easygoing, never pipes up enough to start getting annoying even though I've been listening to it look for a while now. There should be more loops like this, shame more people don't appreciate loops in flashes now that filesizes aren't so restricted, it should still be a challenge to make the flash file as small as possible. Anyway, this is a nice tune. Keep up the good work!

trumpet. definitely add a trumpet/cornet to this.

Could actually 'hear' this being a cornet/trumpet song. If you want, I could record a few samples playing my horn for you to work with.

Haha, it had a trumpet part, but it was in it's own time signature. Some people like polyrhythms, but I doubt most people would have appreciated straight triplets played over a bass clarinet solo jazz piece. It just seemed to cluster the piece too much for a silly little loop. The next piece I anticipate submitting is a piano duet, but the two after that will feature trumpet/cornet parts. Thanks for the review!


Pretty cool concept you've got here

Some instruments sound a bit dissonant though, perhaps try arranging them all in the same key to begin wit. Also the bass frequencies are pretty much overpowering the whole mix. The audio advertisement thread sent me here, go there and check out some stuff, or my stuff, I don't care, just pay it forward.

WerewNC responds:

Yeah, I might have overdone the whole jazzy dissonance thing, but I warned you about that in the advertisement thread. I'll take it easier on the weird chords next time I write something that swings.

All the instruments are in the same key. I wrote it in notation software (MuseScore), not in a digital audio workstation, so I've got to manually write in all the accidentals.

Dang, I almost cranked the bass up more 'cause I thought it had a cool line. Glad I didn't. Listening to it again, I've got to admit, it is really loud. I'm still getting used to a new sample library I'm using, and it turns out it moved the bass clarinet part down an octave, which might make it even more bass heavy. I sorta like the solo an octave lower though, so I won't be changing it. I'll try to take it lighter on the bass next time. I might even edit it down in this if the mood strikes me.

I reviewed two songs when I posted on the advertisement thread, but I'll review yours also. Thanks!


Mmmm, vodka...

I like it! Certainly brightens up the day! Nice loop!


WerewNC responds:

Hmm. . .well it wasn't really meant as a bright piece, but perhaps you're saying vodka brightens up the day. And it certainly does. Glad you liked it!
