Another short, slightly off-kilter one I think. This was for this month's FL forum contest where the restriction is that you could only use the 'FLEX' sinthesiser/sample player and drums and vocals (if you want).

www.bennyleeds7.myfreeola.uk/donkeyt-shithouse.mp3

The title comes from a conversation I had with a slightly potty old lady in Oldham hospital a few years ago whilst waiting for a taxi with my mum, who was being discharged...

"Where are you going?"

"To Shaw Edna"

"Can I come?"

"No sorry, you've got to stay here"

"You know what you are don't you...You're a shithouse"


Which was nice... :scared:


As usual probably needs some tweaking etc...

Ooh, DT has gone all synf. Shocking!

That noisy thing has a few rather loud crackles here and there that I found a bit distracting. Not sure whether you can do anything about that or not.

Normally, I don't like things with such severe restrictions, but you pulled it off. Why am I not surprised? Well done, as usual.

Sounds great and it reflects the conversation beautifully. Nice vocalisations and effects too!
Well done. :)

The bitchrushing etc is all done with the distructor effect, so it's not part of the sounds themselves. I might tone it down just a bit...

I don't think she was up to twerking, with the walking frame and that. Never know though.... :o

Cheers, always good to try something a bit different now and again!

Brilliant and very original. I enjoyed the lo-fi sounds. :tu:

The consistent high quality of DT tracks is impressive.

Trying to do the rounds in the Cafe. First up, DT... Enjoyed very much, great production as per. Sounded very BOC at the start (which is my cuppa) then your very original sounding voice takes over, Awesome stuff! My only gripe I wished it was longer. :tu:
The inner workings of vurts mind are a force to be reckoned with.

There's just one or two places where it really dominates and pops out (swidt?); 99% of the time it's fine.
