"Plaid Curtains"

"Plaid Curtains" [mp3 removed -- updated version is on Bandcamp]

The Linplug RMV virtual beatbox recently updated. The promise of improved stability lured me back to experiment with the "loop mode." These are basically pre-sliced beats that can be exported as MIDI files. I have up to seven tracks of these going, with some individual beats from "pads" (not the same as synth pads -- these are digital drumheads) riding on top. I liked the textures but the rhythms seemed naked without some lush synth cake-icing, so I went back through old tunes and pulled up earlier-used confectionary softsynth etherea in the form of Absynth, Reaktor Subharmonic, and FM7 patches.
