Now, how only to get out of loop-only mode, and figure out how to arrange something more holistically. Anybody got suggestions for tools or resources? Is that something feasible for Scaler to use for?

I am also open to collaborating with anyone who could make use out of my fragments…

What is that strange fried-eggs background noise?

just that, breakfast :upside_down_face:


Or a Pink Floyd reminiscence… :grin:

Anyway, I am tempted to collaborate, but I am under a bad flu, so not for now

And, there is always the problem of my obsession to add bass & drums everywhere :smile:

I seem to be in a bit of a rut to, I’ll come up with something about a minute or two long and then struggle to move on to something more sustantial such as the track below. I suppose this is my lack of musicallity and inability to play any instrument. But I enjoy just trying to make music it’s a hobby of mine especially during these cold winter days.

The thing that struck me here was that the piece is in the ‘Bernd’ style, so to speak, rather like the other Aleamanic YT compositions. I would classify this as being low in tonal variation, no prominent repetitive motif and no ‘drop’. [“It’s not trance”, I hear you say … no, but classical music features drops as well.]

So is that a bad thing ? No, I actually like this genre, and elements can be found in stuff from Tangerine Dream to Paul van Dyke.
I guess there are a few things you could do, but leaving the essential elements in place … maybe bring in other patches / add a filter / (or even a drop).

I found the book by Dennis DeSantis useful (free at Buy Live, Push, Max for Live and Ableton merchandise | Ableton) to trigger thoughts for adding interest and variation.

Thanks for the recommendation, the book looks promising. Here is the link that worked for me…
