How to kill an afternoon 101:

So there I was doing a couple of loops. And the doorbell rang. It was me saying hello to myself. So I let myself in and then I rang myself a couple more times until I'd invited myself over 11 times. So we had a jam.

OK, I just overdubbed a lot of stuff. I've not actually been cloned. It's all live - honest.

In this track are:

- Kit playing a samba on the snare/floor tom
- 2 x 13x3 piccolo snare overdubs with the snares off acting as timbales
- 2 x cowbell overdubs doing a cascara pattern
- 4 x jam block (2 tracks high, 2 tracks low) playing 2:3 clave
- 2 x 18" floor tom overdubs doing the tumbao pattern

I have no idea what you guys can do with this track but it was a good laugh recording it. Timing not perfect but it will line up in a sequencer! Please join if you can!

And yes, I've already thought of the jokes about playing with myself.

I hope you enjoy.

mpointonmpointon Thanks folks. If people want to edit it to their means or whatever, help yourself. I will not be upset or offended. If you want the original master recording stems to mess with (or make more accurate!), let me know. Just be warned there's 23 tracks of it (21 if you exclude the reverb send channels)!

As I said, I have no idea what can be done with this. It was just one of those silly things that I though would be fun and it's nice to do some multi-tracking of my own! Maybe I need my self-indulgence chip looking at!

Lol! One's bad enough! Was a lot of fun to do, though. Used up 23 tracks in Reaper. My Mac didn't know what'd hit it!
Sounds like: [ Martin Pointon ] [ Mardis Gras ]
