Description
Another loops endeavor. "All loops all the time" Still getting my feet wet in the loops department. This tune gives me the feel of a rainy Costa Rican afternoon on the porch next to the rainforest. There is a slideshow (not posted here). Just lean back, close your eyes and take a moment to listen to Costa Rican Rain.....As always critiques are welcome and any help is gratefully accepted...

Creative job of building this piece ... nice sounds with the waves ... I like what happens at around 40 second mark with the rhodes like piano. It would have been nice to play that change a little longer with just the rhythm track underneath .... but it's all very subjective.The only other thing is the constant pan around my head ... now don't get me wrong 'cause I like that EFX but I think it would work better at a slower pace across the space and not consistent throughout. Enjoyed your loops and how you put them together.

Thanks gadzooks
Are you referencing the guitar lick as the pan around your head? If so, I too thought it might be too much...but while working on the piece couldn't find a piano loop I thought fit coming out of the break. i wanted a little more piano noodling at that point, only having the loops that come with garageband, I couldn't find what I was hearing in my head. The string sounds (around 1:53) after the second Rhodes piano are house music effects, I couldn't find strings I felt fit. Glad you liked it, and as always thanks for the critique. Your input is alway helpful and welcomed.

Nice
Good use of loops. The piano works especially well with the rhythm.

Cool piece - actually makes me think of video games from the early 2k's - Spyro, ape escape, and ratchet and clank all had similar types of soundtracks, so since I am an avid gamer this music took me back - very enjoyable - thanks!

I like the soundscape you create. Lively and varied. Clean production. Not so sure about the panning - I listen in headphones most of the time, and with them there may be a stronger effect by just separating some of the sounds left and right and having them seem at various distances from the listener. However, much enjoyed as is!
