Vocal Slice Loop Demo

Download QuickTime movie (8.1 MB)

In this video, Jordan again demonstrates the use of Slice Loops using a wide selection of musical styles, including an Indian vocal loop, Spanish scratch guitar loop and South American berimbau. Notice how he can bring in a polyrhythmic triplet feel by playing individual scratch guitar slices, and then introduce by contrast the more straight feel of the original loop. Then, while the original scratch guitar loop plays, he brings in the twangy berimbau. Out of the blue, Jordan instantly jumps into a Carribean vibe with a Cuban tumbaes bass/piano loop, all the while riffing on the original Slice Loop musical elements.
