    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#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 All, A few weeks back I received the call informing me that a good friend going back to childhood had passed suddenly from heart failure. It was a shock to everyone. Adam had called me earlier in the summer and had invited me to come and visit him for a few days during the summer. I was able to get off and drive there and had a nice time jamming and going to see some movies. Looking back on it now I think he knew what was coming. He had struggled with mental illness all his life but he kept it under control and he always made it to work and paid his bills. He was not "someone great" in terms what everyone thinks when they hear that term. In fact he could be a real pain in the ass but I loved him and in his way I knew he loved me. He had no wife or children, just his cats and his mother whom he cared for. So this is for Adam- I am missing you brother. The lyrics are from James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. Peace, Hugh

    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.

    the guy's a virtuoso, and a juggernaut. his album drops tomorrow, he's on a world tour to promote it after spending the last few years working with the likes of Flying Lotus, Kamasi Washington, and Grammy award-winning artist Kendrick Lamar on To Pimp a Butterfly. he sat in with Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers last year in Burbank, played the Hollywood Bowl with the rest of Brainfeeder Media, and has been seen in-studio collaborating with Grammy award-winning artists Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald for his latest release... ...so why does he not have a thread on here yet???

    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.

    It's funny how Trump tricked even more people to take a knee. I don't think people get it yet, this type of stuff is why he won 2016 and will probably win 2020. Most American voters aren't typically down with this taking a knee stuff lol Free country, people should protest how they want (as long as not hurting anyone), fire who they want (NFL owners should be able to fire players that are hurting its business), etc. It seems we're getting to a point where they just won't play the national anthem anymore at the game. Trump has better things to do in reality, but politically it was pretty smart of him to rile people up like this. It's a shame the NFL couldn't find someone better than Kaepernick to headline this thing though, guy sucks at football and isn't very bright. I think this could have started out much stronger if a better player had stepped up and was able to express their thoughts clearly on this stuff.
