Audiotent Tip #426 // Using Melodic Loops
Sample pack melodic loops are an excellent way to kick start new ideas or to use as the main melodic idea in your track. Here are 3 quick tips on how to make them your own.
1) Slice the loop up and re-arrange. Creating a new melodic sequence. Note, if the loop has reverb and delay tails imprinted into the file use a touch of reverb to smooth out any gaps.
2) Choose one of the notes from the melody loop and extract the single hit into a sampler. Now you have full creative control over the notation.
3) Get creative and process the loop beyond recognition. Experiment with many different plugins, try distortion, transient shapers, phasers and even beat repeaters.
