Your exuberance for making music really shines through on these initial postings you've put up on Macjams. It's obvious you are having fun building songs with loops.

There are a number of loopsters here on the site making remarkable compositions. There's always room for another. Welcome aboard!

Thanks so much for your feedback..... and it is true.... building these loops has turned into a drug for me.... really can't get enough.

Ps.... since I'm new to this game.. is Loopster the actual term for this kind of music? If so... I learned something today!

Thanks again for listening and adding fuel to my passion.

cool mix!
very creatively put together. I recognized many of the loops, but never heard them combined like this, well done! you pretty much substituted a more typical 'kick drum on every beat' with a drum fill throughout the track - and it works! like i said, cool stuff.

I think my favourite part of your comment was that you had heard many of the loops before but never combined in this way.... made my heart swell! Thanks man..

I'm sure there were be many more where this came from.

Thanks for the compliment.

That's great!
Very cool use of familiar loops. I especially like the breaks and how you've used the drums. Great mix too; sounds fabulous.

Thanks for that. I was especially pumped about the mix on this one... I took a bit of extra time panning sound and adding reverb and echo where it seemed it would fit. I still can't believe how a very simple program can be so powerful.

Nice composition, loop building is fun and an undervalued art. I did a lot of this when I first came here, but combined my bass and guitar tracks with the loops. Looking forward to hearing you add some of your bass skills to the mix. Nice post.

Hey man... thanks for havin' a listen.... definitely got plans for a little bass playing in the future. Also... I have a Korg MS-20 synthesiser that I'm keen on integrating.

I am really happy with the idea of loop building.... happy to hear that you feel it as an undervalued art!

Thanks again for taking the time!

Loops are the way to go
You are amazing in ths one. I am a looper guy in a way too, but now have gotten to where I am trying to make my own loops and have even taken my huge loop library off my PC for now to resist the temptation to use some. But I do make my own from my guitar, bass and synth (have to rely on drum samples still of course). I love what can be done with this stuff, like what you did here. the bridge at about 2 minutes is great.

huge thanks
Hey man,

thanks for the compliment... loved your stuff! I take my hat off to anyone actually creating their own loops.... incredible.... for now... I'm having too much fun with the stock loops... but who knows when I'll delve into the abyss.

Loopy fun!
This sounds great. Sooner or later you will have to resort to making your own loops or just playing. As you already play bass, that shouldn't be too hard. Arrangement is half the battle, and you've got that licked.

I don't know what it is, but ...
... “you got it, whatever it is!”

“Loops,” to me, are a fantastic tool to use in constructing a song. Your objective is still “to build a house,” but you are doing so by means of using larger, prefabricated pieces instead of 2x4s and nails. Lots of folks use loops only as the foundation. You’re using them to do the whole thing, and I think it sounds great.

The thing that “makes it or breaks it,” no matter what it is or how you do it, is ... the arrangement. No matter what tools you are using, you’ve got to be creative and original in your selection from among the tools at hand, and then you’ve got to be the same with what you do with those selections. This you have done. Except very possibly in the last 30 seconds or so, which of course is coasting for the exit-ramp anyway, this arrangement constantly and pleasantly surprised me. It shows great imagination and great execution. Nicely done.

Couldn't agree more
Thanks again for the comment Mike.... I couldn't agree more... although loops aren't 'actually' playing real instruments I do feel there is an art to it. As I play several instruments and have been involved in several bands... this gives me a different kind of buzz... hard to describe really... I guess it just lets me get the ideas out of my head without having to deal with different band dynamics and egos (just that of my own).

I can't see this train slowing down... because as soon as I think I've done something before... a new idea will come forward and light the fire again. This song in particular was one that has been on the drawing board for months... just didn't quite know what to do with it.... and didn't want to force it. In the end, I'm glad I let it come forward organically and now is providing the soundtrack to my life... whilst driving.

Again, many many thanks for your time and insight into this project of mine... you are certainly stoking the flames.

Cheers for that.

Greetings from Melbourne. You have put together a musically engaging loop fest here. There is obvious skill in how you arranged and integrated them on display. Nice one. Thanks. Take care, Peter.

Good drive to this. Interesting arrangement that flows well, but has variety in it to keep the entertainment coming. Good bright sound. Enjoyable listening.
