playing around with samplers



thats weird but its ok


Nice chop job - nice job on this one. I loved the percussion - a little reminiscent of some of the later experiments in musique concrète or electroacoustic compositions - sort of but not exactly.

The synths were alright but I think you would have done better to stick with more abstract samples instead of the big 3 (sines saws & squares)

For the most part this seems to be relatively ... anti-melodic ;) but here and there a few patterns emerge.

I'm going with a bunch o' 9's on this one so there is some room for improvement.

You get a 5 though and I hope that you decide to do more of this stuff down the road.

Talk to you later.

Thanks for the review!
Glad you liked the percussion. I think I agree with you about the synths... maybe next time I'll record some guitar samples or something instead.

Very good i like it

Hello attemptedperfection

ok before I begin with the review, I'd like to ask one question because I'm intrigued by what you meant by "playing around with samplers" did you mean to say you had hardware samplers at your disposal? or you used software? or did you mean you had samples of all of these sounds and then mixed them up for this very interesting sounding piece?

The title, after first reading it, seemed really bad. After listening to this, which has played on loop for some time, I can actually see this title suiting this piece like a glove.

A great use of sounds in this and overall I just can't fault it, even though you didn't like our drums on our recent piece, I won't give a poor score in return because that's just low

If I thought this was crap though, then I would give a poor score, but it's not so...

Thanks for your vote, Critical-Collision! You voted 5 for Rhythm Monsters, raising its score from 3.00 to 3.67.

have that

I give only honesty, and honesty is all I expect in return. Thanks for the review! As for the samplers in question, they're software. The tracker I use has multiple samplers with different functions, so I used three of them in this piece; two of them I used with a drum sample I recorded a while back off my drumset, and the other one used a sample of a train. Everything else was done using synths and whatnot. Thanks again for the review!
