Anticonvulsive, for those convulsions.

Tried two things:

1) Drum pattern was boring, so I automated the tempo to switch from 75 bpm to 85 bpm every 2 beats (2 I think?). It sorta sounds funky, but it was a pain in the neck to work around, since changing the tempo in FL Studio resets any delay you have going on, so I used a lot of reverb instead. I guess the tempo of the track averages out to 80 bpm?

2) Wanted to try "live" slicing, where I have a sample open in WavePad, and I hit play and click like crazy on top of the sample in time with the drumbeat. Problem was I couldn't record the "chopping" without also recording the beat from FL Studio off the soundcard. Instead, I export a stripped down version of the beat, put it on my ipod, listen to that with one ear, and then do the chop hearing it off my laptop speakers. It's probably not in time at all, which is why I sidechained it pretty hard with the drums. Interesting idea, I'll probably fuck around with it later.

0:00 that changing bpm is certainly interesting
0:25 Lol all that dissonance. it's pretty darn interesting i must say
0:35 "SPIN THAT SH NIGA ITS CHRISTMAS" yes. you know how i love obnoxiously dry and loud vocal samples.
0:56 this works surprisingly weird
1:05 that sampling is pretty good i like.
1:15 this live slicing thing works surprisingly well. you could use this to dj to be honest. using slicin on the fly. not that i DJ or anything so I probably don't know what
1:45 More SPIN THAT SH please
1:53 this is a beautiful part

I like this experiment a lot and that's why i'm giving it 4/5 because it's just awesome. i rate pretty harshly sometimes but yeah this is great ;0

I feel like the tempo change would've worked better if I exported the elements (drum track, bassline, etc) and dropped them into a new project where the tempo was the average of the 2 tempos. Then I would've been able to use delay again. And I could've dropped in some new elements and had a better idea of where they were relative to the other elements. I dunno.

Glad you dug the "live dj" part. I wasn't sure how to feel about it. It was a little too inconvenient a process for me to use on a regular basis.

Thanks for the review!
