As explained earlier, over the next few months I will post my projects for my music composition class here. I was first assigned to produce a one minute long piece using only loops to that would evoke any particular emotion. I chose “vindictive” as my emotion, and further limited myself to the default loops that come with the DAW required for the class, Sony ACID.
This was my first time using ACID since 2004 or so, and I was pleasantly surprised. The software retained it’s old timey feel and ease of use but is still pretty feature heavy. Loop manipulation remains the focus for the software, something I don’t actually use that often, making it a good first project for me.
