This track was made only with the default sounds of the PO-33. Even though it’s a slow-sounding track, its BPM is actually 140. It’s not my first attempt to create such a track, but this one finally came out… well… OK. It’s little weird, hence the name.
In this track I tried sampling a song, namely Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”:
Here’s the original, wonderful song:
I first learned about this song through the Muse’s cover, which is also great and maintains the original feeling of the song while giving it Muse’s unique sound. Here’s their cover:
Unfortunately I don’t remember where I got the wobble sample from, which is a shame. But I tried so many samples for this track that I lost track (ha ha).
I had to rush this one out before going on vacation. Using some ravey sounds it came out pretty nice. At the end it falls a little short, though.
I used the following samples from the “Loopmasters Welcome Free Samplepack”, which you get after registering to Loopmasters:
This one took quite a long time and didn’t come out as well as I would have liked. Mainly I wanted it to be more energetic. I’m glad I finished it, though. It contains more melody and beat variations than the other tracks I made so far, and coping with dissatisfaction made me work harder to make it decent.
I used two samples of the PO-14 and this computer beep sample.
For this track I used this brass cut sample.
I wanted to use a trumpet sound and I also wanted to create a track with a higher BPM, so I started out with 160. Unsurprisingly this led me to create some sort of a techno track, but when I got halfway through the track changed into something slower (120 BPM) and different-sounding altogether. The mashup is kind of rough, but as usual – I like it :)
Here are some loops created on the PO33:
And these are 32 step loops:
I really like this one. It samples a sound from the PO-14 and uses it as a bassline. In addition, I used this church bell sample and I think it works well. In this clip you can hear the melody playing twice. The second time I added a bit of swing.
