This rhythmic drone loop is one of the " Convoloops pack 03 - China Dream dronescapes 120 bpm"
samplepack. These loops all belong together and are variations and
alterations of each other. They all are 1 bar 4/4 long and have 120 bpm
as tempo. They can be used as background loops for ambient music. Each
loop has the same name with a letter an a number in the end. I took the
microtonik VSTi within Cubase SX and exported the China Dream loop, which is four bars long, as 24 bit wav file. This file was then imported as impulse file within the freeware SIR convolution reverb and applied it to the original loop, all wet. So I convoluted a drumloop with itself! After that, two more reverb units were applied: another SIR (this time with an impulse file from one of the fabulous Spirit Canyon Audio CD's) and the excellent Classic Reverb from my TC Powercore Firewire (preset: Deep Space). Each of these reverbs
was set all wet. When I did that, I got an 8 bar loop. This loop was
then sliced up into 8 peaces of each 1 bar. So I got 8 short one bar
loops: I numbered them with numbers 00 till 07. I repeated the whole
process for several impulse files for the second SIR: the results are
the variation a till r. There are two exceptions on the all wet rule:
the two last loop sets, q and r, have their reverbs
not set all wet, so these are the most rhythmic ones, since there is
some of the original drumloop left. All the others are rhythmic but
very vague. The most busy ones are each time numbers 03 and 04. 01 can
be used as an intro and 07 is kind of the tail. All loops are
normalised and mastered within Wavelab using several high quality
plugins (EQ, multiband finaliser, limiter). Enjoy!
