Assuming you mean only homemade "outside drums / synths / vocals / fx allowed?"

good question i'll edit the rules to clarify:

no outside melodic samples, meaning acapella samples, drum kits, & one-shot fx samples are fair game.

Congratulations Flobama! 

Good sample choices. I had fun with these. I used elements from all the samples you provided and to make things even sweeter, this is my very first beat made with my brand new MPC Live which has realtime pitch, time stretch, warping and other features I'm still learning about. I call this entry "Uh METH odd 2 My Madness"

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.

On mac I got a really nasty one a few weeks back, filled the whole screen with toll numbers and female voice saying your mac is infected.  I didn't force quit in time, so had to resinstall browser and lost my (luckily) backed up bookmarks.  No probs on pc.

sorry to chime off topic, but just throwing it out there.

congratultions to the flobama for the win.

Good point, although I'm having Adblock, so no "Girls in your 4km radius is waiting for your d*ck" for me. :D:D

The thing that me really bothers is about zippy, is that it's deleting the file from time when no downloads happen. Would love to go back and listen to old STBB samples from winners I know nowdays. ;p

Synths (melodyes) allowed? 

How you'll know i use my own synth, not samples from packs? 

I think, maybe next time better to make only outside drums/vocals allowed? 

No outside more challengin'

so outboard gear synth/keys are ok? what about (ac) bass?
cause those aren't samples at all. 
please clarify :)

thx

 

Edit: do you mean things like - "Superdope Hip Hop Piano Chords Sample Pack Vol.XX" are forbidden?

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

thx for clarifying your thoughts!
(imo these sample packs should be illegal. Okay, illegal might be over-the-top, but seriously, everybody can import stems .... ) 

nice challenge!
