One thing that I like to play around with is sampling - I'm not all that good at it, but over the years I've amassed a collection of half decent homemade samples.
At one time in my varied career, I used to work in a secondhand record shop, so lots of my samples are from really obscure vinyl thats probably impossible to track down these days.
I'm also signed up to Soundcloud so why not waste a few precious minutes of your life listening to my awe inspiring sounds (I understand music software, I'm not musician) ...
I also subscribe to www.thisismyjam.com

Should all loop ok - more to follow (when I have time to dig through the hard drive!)
