I found the funk factory preset phrases in the Yamaha QY100.

Intro came out well, not sure about the rest of it - I am not so good at mixing dance music maybe.

@Ranranzeau Thanks, glad you like it. I would not say this is 100% QY100, but that's where I started building the different elements and loops on. Later I rearranged and mixed everything in Live.

I enjoyed that one a lot. Amazing use of the QY100.

I played around with my MPC1000 and Volca Sample, then finished this project in Live.

Happy last day of the year, everyone.

Something more contemplative (?) for the end of year mood. I should probably go back and make this track even more shorter and minimalistic though!

Happy with this one, I hope I mixed the guitars nicely.

I thought what if I try to very quickly make an EP out of the jam session I did earlier this week. I managed to "finish" 4 tracks, but I am only posting the 1st one here for now.

This is some loops and sounds I noodled around with on the Yamaha QY100 and then later finished up on the computer and used all of my other regular gear.

I kind of wish it had more structure somewhat.

Really had to rush this arrangement and mix because I did not have much time this week. There's even a whole second part that I did not have time to work on at all, but maybe it's actually better as it is now than if I had worked on it too much.

This is an outtake from this week's livestream jam session, and I hope it shows how much better it is to jam along with someone else (although noodling alone has its perks!)

Tried to make this kind of stream of consciousness harmonic mess with repetitive but out of sync loops out of last part of the streamed jam session that I did last Tuesday.
It's not perfect but I am happy with how it came out.

This week I did a major rework-remix of an old track that I submitted here in 2019 when doing the weekly challenge.

I still did a jam session stream this week that you can find here: https://soundcloud.com/trent-hawkins/telecharger-livestream-26-20211005-weekly-audiovisual-livestream-tuesdays-830pm-cet

Decided to rearrange a more energetic clip of this week's livestream.

The name has nothing to do with the song, I gave myself 5 minutes and this is the best I could come up with.

This is an edited and arranged part from the solo livestream I did last Tuesday.

Decided to give a name to our streaming project with this inaugural track thats a hypnotic kind of minimal part from our jam session this week.

Rushed track. This time I experimented transposing stuff to different scales-roots using the QY100.

Just a quick one from a longer jam session. I was on the road so I did not have time to work on it too much.

More experiments with the QY100. I tried an approach where I copied the song structure from another track that I like (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVyTLx2e_tQ).

I like the sound in general, but I should have focused a little more on making the drums more interesting with varied rhythms and some percussion sounds. Better luck next time.
