A taste of things to come…
Anyway, I can’t believe I did it…the Trackaday project is officially ‘over’, but its not like I’m going to quit making music (I should totally rep my host, Dreamhost, without whom none of this would have been possible…absolute best web service provider out there). I thought for a little while about killing Noggin, taking real gory pictures and coming up with some elaborate tale and maybe an arch-enemy to take him out, but I didn’t want to alarm anyone who actually knows me as Noggin in my day to day life. I’ll honestly probably keep posting as regularly as I can, but I’ll save the awkward ‘Holy crap can i use yer internet in the next 15 minutes!?!’ cause I was about to forget to post stuff for another time. Not to mention, I’ve still got a backlog that just didn’t see the light yet.
Suffice it to say, I’ve got a totally new set of samples working their way to the mpc (I get a lot of mileage out of an APS file), with the exception of yer standard 808s, 909s, all samples from coming from wax.
Whipped up on the mpc one night after installing the eb16fx card. For the record (very proud of this), my MPC cannot be expanded anymore. Yes, I could add the F-Rom, but that only fits if you don’t have the eb16 card, so my mpc is maxed out as it can get.
The majority entirety of this is using samples off old disco / r&b / jazz records (Ronnie Milsap could nail some drums with his style of dx7-country). The fx card really just makes an appearance for a touch of reverb and I think eq. Don’t sleep on that non-destuctive chop in the 2kxl via velocity->sample start and 16-levels.
