    Whats good my dudes, haven't been on here in a damn minute... here's my track Hope I'm doing this right, if I recall correctly there used to be a button on Soundcloud to share your track to the group but I don't see it there anymore. Do people just submit everything here now?

    just bought a used MPC 1000

    my friend recently sold me his MPC 1000 and i absolutely love it, have a manual and everything but i was wondering if anyone had some advice on what else i should buy with it. i dont have a memory card. just the mpc and the power supply. when i turn it on it says it's 128mb so i dont know if thats a lot or a little. what else might i need to buy that will be essential to use with it? i'm willing to spend some money to make sure i have everything i need to make and save music and to be able to transfer samples from my macbook to the mpc. i already tried plugging it in but i guess you cant mount it unless theres a memory card so thats the first thing on my list. any suggestions on what else i might need? would be much appreciated thanks!

    the way i see it, no matter how "whack" or bizzare the sample may be, the fact that someone can make something sound good from it, that's the beauty of the whole thing.. you toss a sample out there and get a shit load of renditions and i think that's one of the most unique and awesome things about the beat battles. if someone wins and puts out a seriously bizzare sample then i think that's great practice for anyone who wants to get better at sampling music. remember that "beak" sample from #301? that was just pure constant noise that made me cringe to listen to. AND the rule was that you had to make it recognizable in your beat. but a bunch of different people made something great out of it and in my opinion that's what makes these beat battles so great, the fact that people can take a very strange sounding song and turn it into something i can bob my head to.

    STBB behind the beat/Weekly winner interview

    i've tried and tried to use reason and ableton but i cannot figure either out for the life of me. not sure if i need any external instruments to plug into them or not, does anyone know if you can survive making beats with just your computer? i started out on garageband and moved to logic, only because you can do a lot without having to buy any hardware or have any expensive plugins. does anyone else use logic here? i look up youtube tutorials and shit and i never really see people making hip hop beats on it, they're usually house and electronic
