So I landed another film gig and somewhat of a dance music gig. Not big paying stuff but it'll give me a chance to do some music that I haven't really done yet.
I'm pulling out my Reason program and I went to the store today to buy the latest hippest Rex2 files. I pop it out of the bag. For $40 bucks I wasn't expecting much from my pro-sessions loop CD.
I put in the first loop. Bad loop point I get clicking. I put it away. Couple hours later I pull it out again. I find some decent loops. I pull them up into my Dr. Rex loop player. Route it through the adavanced reverb in Reason. Dial up a big boomy(that one's for you Bruce R.) reverb press the gate button. Full around with the aux return on my virtual mixer and after a few minutes it actually starts to sound like I know what I'm doing. A few minutes later and I'm rocking the house down--Raisin' the roof--Gettin' down with my bad a s s self. Yeah baby!!!
After years of thinking that loops weren't for me and after the hellish job I just finished in which I had to write Wagnarian type orchestrations, I'm starting to think, "maybe, maybe I could start to like working with loops." It's not so bad sitting back and relaxing while pushing a button or two.
Is that too lazy?
