    Congrats Fat! A few questions -If i choose to use sample A but it is before 2:00 pm on Sunday can I use sample C also or do i have to use sample B because of alphabetical order? Also- can I use outside samples if i am working in an outdoor environment? If that is allowed what if i come back inside to finish the track would that negate my being able to use the outside sample? Also will i be able to use my track for a chili cook-off I am planning even if the cook-off is planned to occur during the vernal equinox and all the participants are right handed. Excited to get started once I am clear on the rules. if you could fax me a hand printed(no cursive) reply to these questions that would be great.

    Yow beat bros. The mods have had a talk about the goings on on the forum and have come to the conclusion that the new voting system is too laborious and impractical for us to manage. it was cool, but we're reverting to the way that has been going for the last 10 years. pick a winner only, of course you can still list your top threes or top tens etc. as you please. Also we wanna encourage you all to feel free to -add up the votes -start the vote thread ( copying the fixed text obviously ) and -point out stuff you see needs pointing out This forum has always been run by the participants. the STBBCollection and the forum are two different entities. we are mods of STBBC ..and longstanding members of STBB/STMB. on here we we can can offer our insight and experience.. but we want the forum to run somewhat more autonimously. that's it, if you have questions, ask'em pz Joa moderators are in the profile description of stbbcollection

    Stones Throw Beat Battle #532 - Reverb Special Theme Inspiration for this week's theme was a tech demo of the Big Sky reverb pedal by Peter Dyer, keyboarder of Aloe Blacc. It can be found here: link This is much more than a tech demo.. 11 minutes full of musical ideas that can be further developed. And now they will Samples http://www95.zippyshare.com/v/XTKUZgsp/file.html Rules - Flip the sample (one or more parts) - Time limit: 2 Minutes - no outside samples - Outside drums, bass, synths, keys, acapellas / rap allowed - Special rule (mandatory): as the sample is taken from a reverb pedal demo, it has a lot of reverb here and there. Counter the reverb by adding at least one obviously dry element to your track, for example a very dry outstanding snare or bassline.. it should be strong enough to balance out the reverberated samples The Fine Print: Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 532" in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.

    1.Sashimix (Delia In, BS Out) 2.Barry Studebaker ( Love Lifted Me Higher) 3.Sol Sauvage (Not really the right theme but it sounded so right it couldn't be wrong) Shout out the yellow5ive, Buttaslick,SEbP,SaintRock, The Wolfe, Hobgob,Hb, (Mr.T)retshiken but if I was the pick the one track that made me go hmmmmmm(good hmmmmmm) it would have to be tzujan. Loved the theme for this week. I don't know what is going on with previous comments but guys this shit is real important to me as it is for everyone here cause I hear it, so - I dunno what I want to say. I just want to be part of something positive and I am staying positive and will be in the battle as long as you guys let me. We may not all agree on many things but that is how it should be and it would really suck if we all did agree but we all share a passion for creating. Bring on the next theme. I am ready. Peace, Hugh

    Man listen. Even if the rule is there. People still gonna do what the hell they do. Keep rollin. I mean if KVH wins he aint taking food or clothing or nothing outta my mouth. I mean shit. I read this thread 3 times man. Every couple of weeks somebody asks about a specific rule cause they dont like this or that. Couple weeks ago it was why did you make 3 beats in 1. It goes on. Hell one guy got called out cause he used granular synthesis to mangle the sample. One of the mods thought "i should be able to tell what the sample is". Lol. "Flip the sample as long as i can recognize it challenge".....Personal opinions every week. We aint winning no money or a chance at a deal with stones throw. Its a message board. Yes i understand some of you have "poured blood swear and tears" into this. For many years. So i think all we can do is if we see something we all dont like. Ask him to not do it. But if you already sending somebody messages why not send another message asking him or her why they did what they did. This shit is pretty funny and petty as hell. Middle school. Really think about it man. "You wont believe what happens next". KVH lots of folks have a problem with what ya do. Your process is dope and admirable. Folks here don't seem to like it. I could care less. Too much shit going on in my life to he concerned. Anyhoo if i said anything too sideways. Send me a message. #Pushin like i said about drum break lol. If somebody has a looped unchopped drum break amd just adds the sample in there chopped lol whats the difference. Oh i know. You are okay with it. Love this place amd love participating. In 2 weeks it will be back to normal. My track sucked this week.

    I think it definitely goes against the spirit of the beat battles to have the song made in advance and just throw in a sample afterwards so it fits the rules. If this were about showcasing songs we made a while ago then this would be the "Weekly Song Spotlight" instead of a weekly "Beat Battle". If the sample isn't at least informing the song and what ends up getting made, then what's the point of having the samples in the first place? What's the point of having the special rules each week if the song was made weeks, months, years in advance? What's the point of having a deadline for each week if the song was made before the competition started? If you're making the song over a longer period of time well in advance, it just seems to go against the purpose of having this "battle", especially if your song has had months of polish and others have been whipped up in 3 days. I usually get mine done in an afternoon, and I'm going up against a song somebody's been workshopping for weeks? Seems a lil skewed, is all These beat battles started out in the very beginning with entries not being allowed to use anything BUT the samples provided, which means the way this competition was from the beginning meant that you had to make the song that week.

    Your probably right about downplaying what you did. I only know what I hear, and what you said about using the battle sample in the outro of an already completed track. I think manipulating the sample to your will is fine, encouraged even. There are all kinds of ways to incorporate the sample, I don't think thats the issue. What Joa said above, and what I said in my first post on this is the issue. Where is the line? I'm sure that we all have many beats that we made outside of the battle that didn't use samples, only instruments. It would be easy to incorporate the battle sample into them and call it a battle flip. Doesn't make it so. The time limits and the release of the sample for all to use, and the submission deadlines, and all the rest of the rules that go into what we do here are there to keep things fair. I said my piece anyways.

    Kris, I do not know you, but I do enjoy your music. With that being said; having put a lot of blood sweat and tears into this battle for the past 5 years, there are some things I feel I must say to you publicly. I'm sure we've all used "something" pre-prepared at one point or another in our entries. I feel what you've confessed to here after Joa brought it to light, is an exploitation of the very essence of our community. I genuinely find it disgraceful and you seem to speak about it brazenly, which makes it that much worse. It rubs me the wrong way, I think its disrespectful to the rest of us that start working on these beats after the new weeks rules and samples drop. I know what its like to not have time to make music, to make something worthy of contending here. But for real bro, it isn't an excuse. It detracts a great deal to what we are doing here.. With that being said your "531" beat is dope as fuck.. peace

    I think we can keep that benefit of the voting system by naming 1st 2nd and 3rd place votes when voting shall we keep that going?

    I agree. I thought the top 3 voting system was MUCH better personally. Brought just a little needed structure into it, and meant that cats who didn't win but collected 2nd/3rd votes had something tangible to gauge themselves by. I get that the forum is supposed to kinda run itself, but I feel the vote is one thing that does need a little independent structure and moderation. Maybe thats not a popular view though. But hey - good while it lasted, I guess

    Guess I'd prefer if the tapes were simply released just as Dilla originally compiled and sequenced them. No questionable relooping of his work, and no jumps between totally different eras. Let Dave Cooley and folks do the mastering, seal the deal with a booklet of Questlove breaking down every track. Bong bong.

    going to have to nitpick to find a winner here cause these are all so banging. 4. donut producer - bounce. kinda boom-trappy. crazy melodic bass line. tough snare. mix is a little low 3. soul jutsu - super melodic. dope synth bass sound and raw drums. hi hats are kinda loud 2. kowalzki - first beat goes really hard. dude just consistently makes sh*t that knocks. tough to nitpick anything on this--maybe try a quieter snare 1. the ambassador beatz - crazy down south bounce. amazing kick programming. 808 snare is a little thin it was impossible to pick one. any of these could've been #1 really. what do you guys do when you can't pick a winner? sometimes i try to put it in a certain context like which one could i hear on the radio, or what sounds best in the car, or what would i hear roc marci rapping over or which one would my little niece and nephew would like

    I don't think this contravenes the rules exactly but it isn't right. You have a finished track, made entirely without the sample days in advance. Then add some sample sounds at the beginning and end? It's like you crossed the line before the starter pistol, or got a ten strike combo before the bell. It's just a bit Dick Dastardly bro. Just an opinion but I think the sample should probably inform your choices of drums, bass melodies, harmonies and whatever else happens after the sample drops, if not entirely then at least in some part.

    i found it on my own. and strong words coming from a dude who just shamelessly tagged every user here in another thread to hype your random ass beat tape nobody cares about. if you're trying to get people on your side to listen to your shit, you should probably not come out immediately on your judgmental high-horse like we all know this obscure rapper from fucking Memphis. clearly he's not well known if it's been 20 years and he still doesn't meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines -- but hey, if you're looking for people to piss off and turn against you you're doing a great job so far. EDIT: i took the bait, got trolled hard by the king himself.

    If the beats were mixed and mastered properly I think Good to be Home would have been a properly great project. As far as best album since Madvillainy, personally Piñata has had more staying power for me than TPAB, but tbh when the projects are that good it's all just up to taste and semantics. I'm keen to see what the new project will sound like but I really haven't been digging the singles so far... I feel like TPAB was already his big risk-taking project so like everyone's already said it'll be interesting to see where he goes now
