Yeah, I don’t use loop packs either, but your stuff’s polished enough that it wouldn’t sound out of place in one.
My technique for making tracks for this challenge so far has consisted entirely of recording improvisations on a midi controller. I was thinking of trying to write out an actual song, but as soon as I started I remembered that it’s actually a lot of work. I definitely appreciate the dedication involved in writing out everything by hand. [Edit: I just realized you might have not have meant that literally in the “writing things with pen and paper” sense, but whatever, you’re doing cool stuff is all I’m saying.]
And for the regular update, hear are my beats 4 and 5.
