Re: Fruit Loops

     As far as I'm concerned, once you've mapped out your basic backbeat
and layers of breakbeat and bass all that's left is the looping...  and
it is too much fun... A friend and I made some really cool slow-funk
groove a couple days ago by basically following this method, except w/o
a computer... 
     I'd love to have access to software like Cubase and Soundforge but
I'm too poor to care at the moment.  We do our best impersonation by
composing a song on the drum machine, sampling the bits and pieces we
like, playing with a multitap delay (4 continuity I suppose) and then
actively mixing all these different "loops" at mixdown.  We've even been
known to use the MidiSync capability on th Jam Man to insure that we
don't go phase-crazy.
     Hope this gives you a window on what we do...
I'm totally hip to yer ideas leo and would love to hear em.

ciao baby
