Description
Mixcraft(3) round 2. Ok, it's not quite so bad, but yes, the authors could learn a thing or 2 from GB. I decided to give it one more go, so here you go.... a new, pretty basic tune - this time, with loops only "overlapping" on purpose. :)

Even though I was annoyed by Mixcraft while doing my first tune, I actually like the program and this second tune was fun to make.

Pros: It lets you make the same quality stuff as GB - at least from a loop standpoint.
Cons: Unlike GB, it's not free. Also, controls are a little un-intuitive.

swingin
the loops in this remind me of a real vintage machine called the powerhouse by bandmaster.It worked with atari type cartidges that contained a loop of tape containing 4 simultaneous beats that you could mix in and out.Quite ingenious really at the time.You adjusted the pitch by changing the speed of the motor.I've listened to this 3 times anyway so whatever you did it on sounds good to me.

Glad you gave the Mixcraft another try, this track sounds great!

So, are these loops in a common format or specific to Mixcraft app? (just wonderin' is all :P)

Classic Doofy
Mixcraft or GB there's no getting around your sound. Great track - very freshhh. I like the mechanical sounds throughout - and the beat is tight. Nice.

Cool
Never heard of Mixcraft before, sounds good. I like the big robotic beats you come up with. And the whole thing is drenched in sci-fi, which is awesome.
