Thanks to everyone who contributed; every submission is on this compilation with the exception of BoRaX's track, only because I couldn't access the link and I couldn't contact them via email. If you're out there BoRaX, get in contact, I want to hear your track!



DESCRIPTION

Let's make some long nanoloop tracks!

This is a compilation for those who either can't write tracks short enough to be considered for the usual chiptune compilations, or for those who usually write short tracks and want to experiment a little. Basically anyone who wants to write long-form tracks big_smile


GUIDELINES

I've made these a little more strict than I first intended, but consider it a challenge to get creative.

- Any version of Nanoloop is allowed (including multiple copies of same/different versions). This includes the iOS/Android versions, but to even the playing field, please avoid using external samples.
- MINIMUM length of 10 minutes. No maximum.
- ANY genre is fine, but a minimalist/repetitive version of chosen genre is encouraged.
- Submitted tracks must have some consistency throughout the compostion. Tracks with multiple sections are great, but try to avoid a "megamix" of clearly very different pieces. This isn't a collection of EPs.
- NO external effects or sound generators, with the exception of using EQ/compression. Please note that I may get these tracks lightly mastered/limited just to get volume levels consistent.
- External clock signals are permitted, ONLY to control speed of sequencer.
- Editing after recording is permitted.
- Collaborations are permitted and encouraged.

and i was just wondering a while back if you still had that, because i'm always curious on some level as to who currently has gear that i've gotten rid of over the years

i talk to the dude who bought it everyonce in awhile and i've told him if he ever wants to get rid of it i'll buy it back.

Sounds like a great idea! I think strict rules are interesting.

Cool! I'd be happy to participate and start composing once the guidlines are all set wink

I'm considering making it strictly no effects so people can try to get interesting with sound design. Delay can be easily faked in nanoloop; reverb is a bit more difficult but I've heard it done before.

an easy rule to follow is to keep the recording raw: no effects, no compression, no EQ, no additional gear.

NL -> REC

16/44k wav?
