    And I'm stoked it's Scorpio. I think it'll be fun, but I also think its going to make for good listening.

    The gauntlet has been thrown down sirs and madames! Where yall at!

  • I started. Once again, it's hard as hell making something new out of just one song.

    I haven't been able to do much except kick a few ideas around, none of which are all that good yet. I won't really have time to put in some hard work for at least another week, but I do enjoy the challenge of it, especially hearing all the creative shit that happened with the "Mardi Gras" one.

    You need a dynamic effects processor. It really opens up a whole new world when you're limited like this.

    Yeah, listening to you and m_dejean explain yours, I realized what's possible. That's just never been my strong point. My Mardis beat had no effects or processing except for some light reverb on the crash and to carry things from one beat to the next. I'm just not a gear head and don't know my way around a MHz and whatnot, so I just have to work dry and do the little tricks I know how to do.

    I might have to try something new on this one.

    my thoughts exactly...and like you im no gearhead and rarely mess with effects unless its crucial...

    might be a learning experience for all of us

    im the other way around. all possible directions to go with this is confusing. trying to come up with a concept for the track so i can limit myself...

    its so easy to loose perspective on things once youve gone deep into sampling, fx, etc. you start working a day on the attack of the hihat in a fill thats only used once in the song etc.... you get the idea... haha
