Simple Loop

Does anyone but me remember those “Industrial Strength” records out of Detroit in the late 80s and early 90s that had loops like any other DJ loop record, but they were really thick? No? Okay. I should try to track those down.

Anyway, I recently had to change my audio interface (a first-generation Apogee Duet) because it no longer worked in Mac OS X 10.12 (“Sierra”). I went with a Focusrite Saffire Pro 26, which I must say I’m quite pleased with so far. One thing about the experience has been that Focusrite gives up a ton of free plugins, but they’re often only available during a given month. Since it’s the last day of February, I had to get this month’s plugin today, so although I was stoked for Torment: Tides of Numenera (and did play it a fair bit), I took some time out to get all the plugins that I had waiting, plus update a bunch of my other software. I rolled this loop out in a few minutes just to test it all, but I thought it was fun so I’d share it with you all.

There’s no fade-in or fade-out and it’s just a short four-bar loop, repeated for 3 minutes for your enjoyment.
