    How do you make one? Apparently there is such a thing as a bowed glass instrument. Does anyone know what it's like and what it's all about?

    MIDI programme 92, in case you're wondering.

    This is by far the coolest production I have witnessed my sounds used for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUm-0uKBRq0

    First, the drums are my own samples/loops. Bass drum and snare are sampled from a drum machine. The "shaker sound" are rice in a plastic packing shaked smile This is freesound.org

    I use uFXloops in my phone so a fade in/out function has to be automated/pre defined. I have a loop in slot X I want to fade in and out. The fade in to max volume should take 6 bars and the fade out is also 6 bars. This could be defined via "wheels" like the one you use when importing samples.

    Keep on working smile

    Hi gis_sweden,

    thank you very much for creating this wonderful song on soundcloud. It's really fascinating what you got out of it. Did you create the Drums as an instrument too? The whole mix is great!

    I will check and test your error report. I also examined some problems in the sample editor, where it seemed the samplepanel was not ready and threw some exception. I also do not know yet when this happens, but I'll find out and fix.
    Slot move operations... hm, yes this is strange. I found out, when you move a slot once, it should be ok, but doing that several times, the event information seems to get lost. A reopen of the project usually helps, but I'll check that.

    Regarding the Smart Fade/In Fade out, we have some vision on that:
    you know currently there is no automation. We want and we will have automation in uFXloops and we have some rough idea how we make that work:
    As we use slots to play everything, we also want to put automation as a kind of "dummy sample" in the slot. To create an automation you would just need to tell which param to automate (e.g. recording volume), how many bars this is long, and then draw a curve in a panel. You could even say, this should be an automation loop or an automation one-shot.
    And when you start a slot with an automation in it, the automation just starts to run an does what you defined.
    When we use this more general concept, you could later automate a lot of things in uFXloops. However we're still making up our minds, about whether the automation slots can be "normal" slots just containing samples and automations or whether they should be special slots, so they can be separately triggered, mainly how would be the user interaction and visuals of that. If you have preferences or ideas, let me know.

    Meanwhile I also will improve the "manual" fade out (recording level knob). It seems it mutes the sound too fast when you put it down. Maybe have to apply some logarithmic scale here.

    So again, many thanks for testing uFXloops so hard and for producing such a great song with uFXloops. It motivates me a lot to see that despite some bugs you are able to compose and produce with it. smile

    Me again... cool
    2nd uFXloops beat done.
    https://soundcloud.com/gis_sweden/rice-waves-and-sport

    On my wish list is a smart fade in/out function!

    Error report: Sometimes the program stop when you import samples and wants to listen to them before they are saved. Not often but it happens. And confusing things happen when you move slots. Even if you delete the slots that where moved, they still are… still moved… strange…
    This time I used 2 bar loops, one 4bar and two 6 bar “one shots” (the reverse flute).

    In this beat I used two freesound.org samples.

    If a hawk is an eagle, then a coyote can surely be a wolf smile

    I've been in love with "Coyotes 2.mp3" since I first heard it...

    As a new user, I truly thank you for the advice, OnlyTheGhosts. You described the method well, and I believe that I fully understand it. Basically, I can still get the results I need using it, but it will take two searches instead of just one search.

    For example, when I wish to search for only commercially useable sound files, I should just run my search query twice - once for the “Attribution” licensed sound files, and then again for the “Creative Commons 0” license sound files.

    I’ll grant you, it is a way around my single-step approach of using an elimination of a category (or categories) in the search criteria window itself to get a bigger list of results in only one search. Nonetheless, your advice is extremely helpful using the current search system, and I appreciate it. So thanks again.

    It is great to see people willing to help out a new member.

    Sincerely,
    ChildrensAuthor

    I would like the new system to be able to search by License Type (both by inclusion and/or exclusion).

    That way, for example, I can eliminate all of the sound files that are not commercially useable, saving myself a lot time.

    That can already be filtered. When I do a search for a type of sound, the license types that are available appear on the right side under the label licenses in red.
