    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. No time limit. 1 Entry pr. person The Fine Print: Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 545“ in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time.

    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.

    Also, if most people are cool with it I'd like to make this-week-only rule that the top 3 winners all get to choose one sample each - this should make for a really interesting next week, and encourage people to bring their best and to vote and leave feedback.. Let me know what yall think!

    fair enough, here was my thought process on this: the word 'sample' for me usually means material taken from other songs so that's what it means here. no sampling from other songs/recordings allowed. i guess i hadn't considered the possibility of sample packs, or pre-made loops & whatnot since i personally don't use them. In regards to CTRL x SKILLZ response, you're right, the difference in the final product would likely be impossible to tell. So here's what I'll say: things like - "Superdope Hip Hop Piano Chords Sample Pack Vol.XX" are frowned upon but not illegal . I encourage the use of any and all outboard gear, instruments, soft synths, etc. that you may have at your disposal. I understand that 'no outside anything' type rules are more challenging in a sense, but this week I wanted to give people the opportunity to flex their instrument chops

    And I'm sure about 1,000 people have asked this over the years and I'm sorry for being 1,001 but why is this zippyshare site the standard for sharing samples for these battles? It seems really loaded with spammy malware. My antivirus software is basically begging me to stop using that site.

    LATIN ARPEGGIOS WEEK! Thanks for all who voted! There's an audio file of a guitarist, and a MIDI file of the same piece, which is all chords broken up and played super fast.. If you slow the MIDI file down you get some really cool melodies, or sped up you get a wall of blazing latin dopeness! Should make for some really cool entries if used for synth or key parts.. - Use the sample, the MIDI or both - outside instruments / drums / acapellas / vocal shots / fx-stuff allowed - no outside samples HAPPY BEATMAKING!

    CONGRATS TO LONIUS See because it's "Lone" Wolf and Cub... I'm not very good at these Here's the votes. Somebody actually double check these for me because the algorithm screwed up and I had to do the math in my head, something my job at the bank has lately proven to me I'm not very good at. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vQ991N-8HU_FBZ68u65A0ElneouKzwmmicVoHb7VK0JitfcsUnx8EwAuNiN-dd96WSMpUGCPbX6EFL9/pubhtml?gid=927413053&single=true also for some reason for me it's showing the version before i tallied lonius' vote but I can't seem to fix it? But his vote was counted and, well, that's how he was able to win in the first place, because he voted. JUST GOT IT IN UNDER THE WIRE THOUGH YER LUCKY

    He did remix the entire album long ago, like 2000. No idea what happened to it, but I remember this was in ADAT days, and that he had recorded over the Antidote master, because he needed a tape, or something along those lines.

    Senator Ted Cruz, a family-values politician, was once involved in a court case involving a state ban of sex toys. Cruz, then Texas’ solicitor general, argued that there is “no substantive due process right to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes.” http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/09/12/ted_cruz_s_twitter_account_liked_a_porn_tweet.html

    Fluent from the Green Llamas is definitely back! Dropping new music! Re-releasing some of the older material in the catalog. Might as well, all that stuff is timeless! He also posted up in the Hype section! If you like that raw shit, ill samples, ill arrangements of sounds, give that dude a listen! He's one of the best out there!

    Dollar bin R&B records is where it's at, bruh. Either for inspiration (see: Award Tour by ATCQ and how the bassline was "inspired" by the one from Jade's "Don't Walk Away") or just flat out sampling them shits (similar to how Knxwledge and 9th Wonder flips old R&B loops). Jodeci, Zhane, The Family Stand, Soul II Soul ...

Kinda agree that it was a tough round, but i really liked the challenge... It was kind of tough to figure out how to use the acapella, but on the other hand there was no limits as far as synths, drums and so on, so i think there was alot to work with!

    I'd really appreciate to know if anything in my track (or anyone else's) was out of tune. I've been trying to be more mindful of that and I know I played around with the pitch of the sparkly shit in the background of the 2nd half of mine and couldn't decide if it helped or not. I may have a poor ear for that kind of thing. My alias is not arbitrary.
