Posting some "Figure Sketches"
First time I've posted anything I've worked up in Figure... these were all done in anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes each.

Fly hi is cool!
All pretty good sketches actually, but flying hi is my favourite.

Any thoughts on how to get more out of Figure? I've really tried to squeeze as much out of 3 tracks as I could with these, but I'm wondering if anyone's come up with any particular tricks or techniques that they like to use or that sound especially cool to them?

I think until figure gets an update where we can record automation for the loop the best bet would be reason, to add some variations like 8 bars no drums then 8 bars with.
I've thought about exporting some loops and chopping them up in recycle as well to add some interesting changes. I think by exporting the loops and working in reason with just that audio alone you could probably turn that 8 bar loop into a whole song.

Nice sketches, vanKloot!

Thanks Mate!

And yeah, I've exported into Reason to do more... it's definitely the way to go if you really want to turn a Figure idea into a full song. But since the contest is strictly about uploads right out of Figure, I'm trying to see just how much can be done in the app alone.

Ye same, I tried to hit record and mess with the pumping whilst recording but it didn't work :( would've been cool as well

Yeah only way you can do that stuff is to record it realtime into Reason. Same goes for changing keys, which is musically soooooo useful. If Figure had the ability to automate all parameters... I would probably create nearly finished musical pieces in it, dumping out to Reason just for final mixing and maybe layering added instrumentation.

They're all pretty tight. I hadn't realised that figure was that powerful. Shame there's not currently an android version for me to play with.

Added a couple new ones... any feedback, in particular constructive feedback about how best to utilize Figure, is most appreciated! :)
