    Default Free beer

    Iíve entered one of my songs in a national music competition where 50% of the votes will be from social media - which means Iíve got a shot if you guys all vote early and vote often

    Zam,

    When you say one of your songs, what exactly did you do in terms of composition/playing.

    I composed a tune using a bunch of loops from various sources

    and my friend Leah played drums

    OK Cheers. That's what I'd imagined (apart from the live drums) but I've been caught out by making assumptions before

    Just to dispel any rumours that I don’t actually perform any part of my music, I added a few bars of guitar in a couple of spots in my latest hit...

    Who's been spreading that rumour?

    What do you use for the loops? I imagine something like FL Studio and a nice loops bundle.

    I'd like to make my own music for videos but every time I try it turns into a big production (trying to record instruments) and can't get it going well enough. It would help a ton to start with a good loop collection as a framework that I could then apply a bit of instrumentation on top.

    Thanks man

    I’m using GarageBand with various apple loop packs and some add-on VST instruments - i use the odd loop from looperman.com but their tempo and pitch are fixed so they are not as easy to work with

    Hey Dan, It's quite timely that on a music forum I frequent one of the members just posted how he hates the over use of trap style beats and particularly triplet high hats in current pop songs. ...and your tune is littered with them Personally I like em and will vote for your song regardless. How do I claim my free beer

    hmm - I wonder if the high hats might explain my low number of plays and small number of followers - maybe Iíll tone them down a bit

    im planning a trip to Bavaria in July - lots of beer there
