A few hours of noodling producing MP3s on a Saturday night.

This is Tigris. I’m not listing it under a new song because I didn’t write any of it. I just looked up loops and plunked them down in an order that sounded pleasing.

Tigris is made entirely of loops of Middle Eastern instruments. I used it to mess around with building dynamic cross-fades, building sends, hocketing, messing with the reverb plug-ins and working through some hints on better mixing. It sounds very cool in a distinct Middle Eastern way. I’m getting the track mixer under control.

Song here: Tigris

Name: “Tigris”
Genre: World
Key: C
BPM: 120bpm

I plugged in my MIDI controller keyboard and didn’t use it at all. Sigh.
