    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? Why sure. Detritus is not my real name, it is Hugh. I live in the mountains outside of Asheville NC. I teach Robotics in a public middle school. I really enjoy being around students this age but not in a Roy Moore way. Way back in time I was a bass player in band but I am really a keyboard/computer fiend now. I have 2 children to keep me straight and an ex-wife to keep me poor. I love STBB and hb turned me on to it when he heard a track in which I had sampled Dilla and invited me. Now I never miss a week-nuff said. Oh yeah Pet peeve-people who don't vote. I know it takes time to listen but if at all possible please vote. 2. How did you make use of the sample? Well, I usually listen and pick out sections that sound tasty and slice to keyboard and adjust as needed. I also usually use some kind of crossfading of created loops as it open up combos I would not of thought of before but sometimes makes me sound a bit busy. I had posted some of my loops to the mb and Joa took it and ran with it. I also sent him some guitar loops which he used more artfully than I ever would have. 3. How did you incorporate the rules? Well I got lucky and Joa took the bait for a collaboration. I wanted a Chicago theme but Joa took it and made it about The Elderly Brothers. I did get the guitar licks from Howlin' Wolf trying to get a little of the Chicago blues in there. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? All Joa, thank Gawd. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? Ableton -accept no substitutes. Actually it is never the DAW, it is the person using the DAW. Oh forgot to add I use an APC40/20 combo and usually perform my tracks as a live mix. It is my habit for everything I do. 6. Anything else you wanna add? I am humbled every week by the skill of everyone and all the different takes on the samples and theme. I enjoy Fridays when I get to listen to everyone's track and start putting names on my notepad. I make my top 3 choices before I see how others voted cause I do not want outside forces to sway my votes. Just wanted to say again-VOTE! Thanks STBB family. Peace, Hugh

    Stone statues are very much a problem, you clearly aren't offended by them, but some people are.Museums are different than them being out in the open in public view I don't want to drive down the street or walk to a park and have to openly see a monument of anyone who fought against me having freedom and civil liberties

    STBB 545 >>Mixed Genres Week<< Samples: Zip or seperate: Earth Blossom Pasado Obhimani 15 Minutos Angel Eyes St. James Infermary Victor 13066a Wakarebanashi nanka Mixed genres week: Use at least three of the samples to make a beat with two different styles/genres. Could be Boombap, Trap, House, Ambient, Reggaeton, Jazz, techno, Electronica... whatever, just try and be creative and make both parts HOT FIRE!! You can make it with some type of breakdown in the middle to seperate the two or you can mix the genres throughout the beat or make a surprise transition, but no matter how you do it Just try to make it work and try to make it sound natural, even though it is maybe outside of your comfort zone. If you find it hard to use three samples, try some different breakdowns or intro/outro stuff, try to be creative (it shouldn't be to hard with so many samples to pick from, there's over 30 minutes worth of samplematerial...) Outside melodic samples not allowed, use the ones i provided. Outside anything else is ok.

    STBB #570 Chopspiration The sample is exactly 89 BPM, pre-chopped so you can loop or move around any part bar by bar (or 8th/quarternotes/whatever) if you import the wav into your song file Original is here Sample: http://www84.zippyshare.com/v/0Ist5Xzn/file.html (Sorry for zippyshare link, couldn't get wesendit to work) Rules Outside everything allowed, beat must be based around the provided sample Notes The in-time sample is called "89BPM-On Green Dolphin Street - Rhodes Mark I 1975 improvisation" In the other folder is the original performance and an example of what the in-time version sounds like with a 4/4 beat on top I chose a one-sample week for good competition, along hopefully with ease of chops making for some diverse entries Try placing the wav over a drum pattern at 89 BPM and clicking around randomly for ideas/inspiration - it's basically like having hundreds of preloaded chops End result can can be any speed you like You don't have to use the wav chopping method and can make your beat normally - knowing it's exactly 89bpm will make it easier to do it the regular way too - the goal is to chop the sample into a unique and dope beat Theoretically you could make a beat by chopping the whole song into bars and randomly rearranging them! Because the original is a human performance a couple of bits and pieces are not perfectly in time and may drag/speed a little Make sure to set your sequencer to 89 BPM before you import the audio file - at least in Reason not doing so can sometimes mess things up Happy Beatmaking!

    ..okay, looks like the community is stepping up... good. now.. while we're at it.. how about some more interesting rules and samples ? barring the occasional highlight.. 'lonius' it has all been a bit bland.. haven't really been challenged of late.. so just a reminder of some cool rules of the past: BPMs, structures/ chorus/ hooks[ drops , fieldrecordings. use your body, monophonic, flip according to a picture, 4/5 time, reverse, reverbless, record own drums, unquantized, organic, make a video to go with your beat... etc. and many themes, like: zombies, distopia, halloween, xmas, love, gangster lovesong, dusty, underwater, edm, reggae, jazz.....and so forth.. plus sample picking: we've had whole themed packs: Bollywood, Eastern European, Drumkits, winner's played keys, single tracks without drums, acapellas, spoken pieces, country, etc etc.. this just to spark your imaginations somewhat.. pz Joa

    In light of recent events - messages I got considering the voting deadline and process to be judged unfairly e.g. - let me tell you this: I've been doing the voting/setting up vote threat on my own for the last few weeks. It takes about 3/4 of an hour to an hour each and every week. I'm not complaining, just mentioning, bc you might not know that it's a lot of work. I don't have a lot of time, especially not 9 am on my only spare day, which is saturday. If you find mistakes or mixups, thats cool. Message me/superfly/barry (please come back guys!!!!) and one of us will correct them asap IF you have proof. BUT: If you wanna bitch around - keep it for guys/girls that give a fuck. We spend enough time organizing round here doing the "dirty work". We all just wanna hit the studio and jam. If you want sth. to change or be changed THATS NICE. BUT DO SOMETHING. Complaining is easy. THIS BATTLE IS USER-MODERATED and this means, moderation ist NOT limited to the few who actually seemed to care about this for the last weeks. (big s/o to all the ones who actually cared/asked/eg.) feels like the rest is just up for free comments and likes? I hope not. Suggestions: If your vote is close to the deadline, WHY NOT MENTION THAT IN YOU POST? If your Entry is late, WHY NOT MENTION THAT IN YOUR TRACK TITLE? thank you.

    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? I'm a Philadelphia resident who grew up in the mountains north of it. I moved to Philly when I went to college for Illustration. My portfolio site is https://supaflyart.me/ I used to spell my musician name as "Arturro" because I thought the misspelling would make it easier to Google, but I decided to give that up after I had already been on 3 separate Bandcamp album thingies and signed up for this site to do the beat battles. Whoops! 2. How did you make use of the sample? I took a part with some nice horns I could sample in some way, and then I dropped the right channel and made the left track Mono because that effectively took the drums out of the sample, giving me a much easier time messing with it and making use of the horns how I wanted. For the parts where it gets all metal-sounding, I sped the track up double time and put a resonator on the sample and just kinda messed around with the settings til I got something I liked. I wish I had EQ'd the higher pitches on the metal down. 3. How did you incorporate the rules? I faked a little DJ intro and outro as well as an interview where I ask myself a question. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? I have no creative capacity when it comes to drum patterns or anything like that so I gave something a shot and tried a drum look where the drums were super overblown but it sounded awful (naturally) and I almost gave up, but then I just tried a simple drum track and it worked when I finally found a snare I liked. That was pretty much it, like I said, I have no creative capacity for drums. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? I use Ableton Live with a couple vsts and a MIDI keyboard (with a broken power supply at the moment) and a guitar (that I need to buy an interface for so I can plug it into my computer). 6. Anything else you wanna add? I press buttons and sounds come out

    1. Wanna tell us something about yourself? Hi..JoaGymshoe.. from Rotterdam, The Netherlands.. born in '78. uhm.. writing lyrics since the early nineties..beatmaking since around 2002. 2. How did you make use of the sample? I pitched some part that had pianokeys down and chopped them up.. that also had a bassline layered with/under... I've always been a sucker for abstract piano melodies. sampled a horn and used that played normally and reversed and made shorter stabs too creating a rythmic push and pull effect. 3. How did you incorporate the rules? the rule was to collaborate with someone. I made the piano /bass and horns loop on saturday with just a snare hit layered with a clap. added an outside high note piano pling with a tingly trail. found Detritus' collab request on stmb sunday morning and listened to his work.. I thought it had great potential it was 90 bpm so I timestretched it to 82 bpm.. used the ( stand up ) bassline and the verby horns. which I added more reverbto later to get them more into the background. over the following days he sent me the guitar picky sound used in the intro for instance..and another guitar lick which I cut up. 4. How did you go about making the drums and drum programming? like mentioned I started off with the layered snare.. somewhere along the line I added the hat I had sampled off an earlier stbb sample . and played that back and forth to create a sort of shaker effect. that already added enough swing to the drums which are otherwise on 'beat' ( quantize ) athough usually I move the drums around a lil' the kicks I made on tuesday I think.. also layered two or three to cover several frequencies eq drums in certain frequencies to enhance their impact.. also sidechain snare to the whole of melodies bass.. the kicks a little less ... did the structure/arrangement of everything on tuesday thought it would be cool to have some scratching on it... I scowered youtube for a while and found the cuts I ended up using in a DMC mixing contest.. timestretched them and cut them up. ... the lyrics I wrote during the whole process barring the first half of the first verse which came from my rhymediary. recorded it all on the final arrangement on wednesday and made some final adjustments.. finetuning, details like shortening some drumhits etc. 5. What DAW and or equipment did you use? I use Cool Edit for chopping.. Reason 4 for creating and Cubase 5 for further edits, vocal recording and mixing. I vary my formula from adding no compression, reverb, delay, panning and equing etc. in Reason to doing loads in Reason.. export every track seperately coz Rewire doesn't work. Recall adding some compression on the whole in reason and already equing some nasty frequencies out in Reason this time. so further equing, compressing, limiting, panning, stereo enhancing etc. was done in Cubase. also duplicated and panned some sounds max left and right and adding minimal delay to one side or the other to create more space/ depth Recorded one rap track and did the left and right backing/adlib track seperatly for nice stereo effect.. I think at about 1/3 of maximum width this time.. often go wider but that all depends on where the rest of the instruments are in the mix. so rather close to the center this time added some reverb and delay.. used multiband on the whole of the vocals. and equed a lot lot lot! equed the whole finished track.. limited and compressed.. but those are actually things that go on throughout the whole process.. learning what to listen for is a process of years for me.. also in the case of getting sounds in key.. but that's another story 6. Anything else you wanna add? I hope some of the techniques I explained come in handy for you.. might add more later if some pop up I forgot. been doing these battles for over four years and haven't missed many.. made true friends and travelled the globe visiting some.. it truly has a major impact on my life and I've learned a lot both in music but also as a human being. ego/validation is one thing that seems to go hand in hand with competition. that's one of the things I'm still working on. anywho.. love this intangible place called stmb.. here I find a release for craft, creativeness and emotions.. thanks D.T, for the nice collaboration pz Joa

    STBB#548 CHORDS WEEK http://www87.zippyshare.com/v/z2CSx6ab/file.html The sample pack lets you create your own jazzy chord progression! There are 12 piano chord wavs, and also a midi file of the same chords so they can be used on any MIDI instrument All the chords are in the same key (C Minor) so if you load them all into a sampler you can hit them in any order to create an original song in C, or use them however you like, pitch them up and down etc.. wav number 1 is C minor, and the order goes up from there.. Since they're in the same key, no music theory is needed For an example: wav 1 followed by wav 2 is Mobb Deep's Give Up The Goods.. you could probably find most songs by messing about (apart from crazier stuff like prog/jazz etc) All outside instruments and samples allowed, as long as the chords are the main basis of the song in some way (you can use the midi or WAVs or both).. Hopefully I didn't screw up the piano wavs, tried to get the thread out as quick as possible this week - used Reason Pianos with no reverb or effects, sounds OK in my phones (no speakers ATM!)..worst case scenario there is the MIDI 3 Min Time Limit H A P P Y B E A T M A K I N G!

    A statue/monument is a powerful thing, goes beyond just a historical reminder, especially when you have people walking around today who still support the achievements that earned them that statue. It's not about erasing history, it's about not celebrating it and taking power away from those that do.

    Hey guys... I haven't been posting for very long so feel free to tell a noob to sit the fuck back down and shut up! lol But yo...I was talking to DJ Sapien and I was telling him how I just left a beats forum (called The Beat INN) that was getting super weak on the flips, samples, and skill...but was, and is, still very dope for discussion of techniques for each week. I think having that element in STBB would put this board over the top in terms of all around quality. I didn't want to post this in Talk or Crates because I was hoping that maybe we could start this thread with every new battle for people to express any questions, advice, or praise about particular submissions. Constrobuz has a really long thread about sidechain compression that kind of just happened out of nowhere on his 285 soundcloud entry, and there were folks who said they wished there was something of the sort with every week. For instance, someone would start the thread near the end of the week just the same way we post the Voting thread. Anybody who had a particular topic in mind or track they liked (keep it focused on the sample for that week) could post there.....hopefully we'd be able to get some real knowledge out of it. thoughts? peace, sev

    Normaly late entries will be added to the playlist if they are not way to late, i think Maybe you could change the title of the track on soundcloud and add a (late entry). Would be nice! And the people counting the votes will thank you

    okay, so this seems to be a week where a lot comes bubbling to the surface... it never dawned on me that acapellas weren't allowed... it has always been mentioned in a different context to "no outside samples" that's why lokal being new also misunderstood it in relation to the drums.. No Outside Samples = no use of other melodic parts of other songs Vocal Shots - Stabs - FX - Skits are part of the fixed ruleset... always allowed.. unless mentioned otherwise Acapelllas and use of synths/keys/ instruments should be mentioned if they are or aren't allowed... the FAQ hasn't been updated since 2009 but here it is: here's a quite complete standard ruleset as reference - Time limit between 1 and 3 mins - Outside drums and bass allowed - Outside keys/synths/instruments not allowed - Outside samples not allowed - Outside vocal cuts/skits/scratches/ fx allowed - Acapellas allowed now, non melodic instrument stabs etc.. I'm not totally clear on.. some things can be left to the flipper's discretion I suppose.. like vinyl crackle etc. hopefully this will clear things up for the foreseeable future

    STBB #562 Radio I often listen to a show called Dedicated HipHopMixshow broadcast live from Chicago.. Dope!.. It's been going for 27 years straight! "Dedicated" hip hop vinyl only radio mixshow Sunday night 12 midnight-5am Monday CST https://www.wnur.org/ there's an FB group you can join and a recording of the show too but I'll let you figure that out yourselves... the show isn't called Dedicated for nothing the theme: make a track that sounds as much as a radio musicshow as possible the rule: have at least 3 components of just talking in it you can record your own voice or use any other audio material the samples: https://we.tl/C4G7l77hp3 use some part of the given sample...everything else allowed that means outside sample use too pz Joe and D.T.

    I kind of liked the Vox video. On a different note: I watching the Ken Burns doc on PBS and damn it, we live in a pretty good time, in a great country and I hope the outliers don't fuck it all up.
