Description
This song was composed entirely from loops found on the Magix Soundpool collection 2005 DVD. I used mostly loops from the "Easy Listening" genre - but I picked the funkier sounding ones.

I haven't put much effort into mastering yet. All the panning controls are dead center still. The samples are still mostly "dry" - no effects added. I'd welcome your input for mastering this tune better.

If you are interested in the Magix soundpool, I have a thread going in the forum. I have written a converter to make this Windows-centric sample pool a cool GarageBand addon.

Wow, tasty.
Very nice jazzy sound with the scat soloin. I would turn
down the entrance at 21 seconds, let the sax stand out man.
Synths might just hide a bit more in the song. Groove is
perfect, especially 13-21 seconds, and again before the
end... i would suggest cutting the goofy effect at the end.
Great groove man! I love it.

I agree with mstrymn about the sound effect in the end.
But good work, nontheless.

Love the slap bass and the horns. Really makes the funk

Only loops?
I liked the female vocal that came in the middle. Added something different. The flute is exceptionally nice too.

Scat brain
Very fine scatting and great use of loops. This is
funkyluscious.

Fantastic song art. What program was used to create the
fairy?

Scat brain
I believe the software is called DAZ studio. DAZ also sell models for a popular 3D rendering program called "Poser". The studio program is a 3D rendering software that can also load poser models, but it is available FREE from DAZ. The fairy scene came with the program.

uplifting
I listened to this on a morning where I was having a
difficult time motivating myself to do anything.

This track put some motion into me. Very nice
use of loops!

Smoove!
I like the beat and the rhythm along with the femail scat. Nicely done and incorporated perfectly into the song. I'd have to agree on the sound effect at the end of the song - feels out of place...more "electronica" feeling. The loops are cool, I'll have to head over to your forum posts.
