After much speculation...

This month's theme does indeed feature pans and pipes. And moaning - possibly even about this theme. Because PANdeMOANium is breaking out!
Oh, and Pandamoanium too, apparently.
"Wait, what?", you say? Oh you want rules do you. Rules for chaos. Tough audience this one.
Alright, this is what you have to do:
- Embrace the concept of pandemonium.
- Use the provided pan samples to create part of your entry.
This should be a central element for at least 4 bars. You can manipulate the samples however you want, as long as it's done in FL Studio with stock plugins etc.
If you render out audio as part of the process, include the intermediate steps as audio files in the playlist (suggestion: use a muted playlist track and lock it so it doesn't affect your entry). Each pan sample (1-8) is me hitting a different pan. You don't need to use them all.
- Add some moans!
I've included an audio file that you can use if you don't want to or can't record your own moans. If you record your own moans, you don't need to use mine. You don't need to use the full recording either, I have tried to provide a bit of variation for you to work with.
You can again mangle the audio. This does not need to be a central element.
- Add some pipes!
You are free to use your imagination as to what that means. You could synthesise the sound of pan pipes or a pipe organ. You could sample the sound of your water pipe. You could sample the sound of water running through your plumbing. You could add a video similar to Fruity Bird (from the ZGame challenge) featuring Mario disappearing into pipes. Just include a short explanation of what you did to add pipes to your project. The more creative, the better!
- Panning automation!
Automate the panning of at least one element while it is playing. The effect should be obvious enough when listening. You can tell us what to look out for when listening though!
- Genre restrictions
Jazz fusion entries with a 3/4 time signature will be automatically disqualified. If you want to make jazz fusion, then no waltzes. If you want to make a waltz, no jazz fusion. You
have been warned.
- Your entry should not be longer than 3:30.
- Used plugins must be stock FL (included in FL's installer)
- Used samples must be stock FL, free from IL's online content library, recorded by you, or from the provided zip
