Here is another interesting workflow for Scaler and AAS Strum-GS
Again, Scaler triggers both chords and riff in AAS Strum-GS, but after that…
A premise: I looked at a video yesterday, where and AAS Strum-GS developer says that AAS Strum-GS riffs can be homemade
The workflow was not easy to me, so I tried again to use Ezkeys to do the trick for me
in brief, I copy-pasted a series of Funky MIDIs and asked Ezkeys to randomize them, then I dropped the modded MIDIs in the AAS Strum-GS folder…
Unfortunately it didn’t work
Then, I came back to my usual workflow and I decided to use a Blues pattern instead and after a while an interesting series of riffs jumped out
The problem is that in each riff created, only a part sounded cool, so I used the new Ableton Live 11 feature Comping that let you melt together pieces of MIDIs, and again in a trial and error style (that I love ) and after a few cut & sew this Latin (or Spanish) piece of song jumped out
I’ve been wondering that for some time, but to be honest I dared not ask
Also, there has been a fairly comprehensive list of music that’s not on his list, and I’m still trying to see any pattern of common genre in the elements …
Footnote ; Claudio - having been sballato (??) before of my obscure use of English idiom, this is intended as a piece of good natured English ‘ribbing’ (nervatura??) ; your posts are always informative, sound and witty - not to mention the occasional amusing sparring with @Bernd !
I am with Claudio on that. Producing finished pieces is only one motivation to engage with music. I too prefer a more experimental process, see what is doable, and jam with it in the process. The act of discovery can still be a creative endeavor. Classic tension between journey and destination.
