loop 12

I think I’m getting arthritis in my hands:

Audio MP3

The drums on here are sampled from record with the sp1200, run through the Flesh Modulation effect, recorded onto PC, and then loaded into the MPC. The drums are not quantized (except the ride). All the synth sounds are the Meeblip run the the OTO Biscuit.

loop 10

Scratch drums on this one:

Once again, all recorded onto the 2880.

loop 11

Another loop using the 2880:

Audio MP3

This one is using the MPC for drums (sampled into the SP1200 and filtered with the FM filter first), the Meeblip for the lead and counter lead (ran through the OTO Bisquit), and the little phatty for the drone bass/midrange sound. Everything is played live into the 2880 looper (except the drums). The 2880 was the MIDI master, and the MPC was the MIDI slave.

Scratch Beats

A couple experimental beats:

5th Loop:

6th Loop:

Audio MP3

These loops were both performed live using the Electro Harmonix 2880 looper. The drums were scratched live (one loop for the kick and snare, one loop for the ride). The synth sounds are all played live with the Meeblip synth. No edits and no effects.

Thirdy

Thirdy - Flesh O.N.E.

This was an album I released in 2008. It’s a bunch of loops made with a lot of different tools and such. There’s some LSDJ Game Boy stuff on there, Roland PMA-5, SP1200, MPC2000xl, straight Fruity Loops, etc.. A bunch of different stuff…

Here’s a preview of a few beats:

Beat 2 – GBoi Beat1

GBoi Beat1:

Audio MP3

Me and my guy Colin Gilboy, aka GBoi (his new unofficial, super awesome, hip-hop producer name), made this beat last weekend.

It went like this… beat first, MeeBlip loops second, Moog loop third, fruity loops sequencing and reverb last.

Beat 1

I’m gonna kick of the beats section with this fella. Let me know if you have any problems with the player on any devices.

FM Crunch Time:

Audio MP3

All sounds were run through Flesh Modulation effect (FM). After running through FM, the drums were sampled into the mpc2000xl and sequenced. The “melody” was sequenced in fruity loops. Fruity loops and the mpc were synced via MIDI. The sound at the intro is scratching through FM.
