Why does the rules always have to be so hard to understand!? I swear, the last 100 battles or so its some cryptic ass shit.

No outside anything - except instruments? What the fuck? Explain yourself!

So if I play on a midi keyboard using vsts, whats that? If I play an MPC and record, whats that? If I take a one tone sample from the sample chosen and map it out and play with on midikeyboard, whats that?

Is your rule actually no outside samples or what?

Sorry for the confusion breh!

 

The only two ways you can derive sounds is from the sample, or if you physically play them (guitar, bass, drums, woodwinds, trumpets, live pianos, a crumpled piece of paper, your dogs belly) Obviously you can play that or sequence it. Wanna make a synth outta the sax sound through multisampling? GO FOR IT! Wanna make a bass sound from the sample? GO FOR IT!

 

wanna use outside drum sounds and vsts? Nope. 

Wanna play some drums live and record that? Yup!

 

The main thing here is: no outside samples or vsts. The only outside sounds you can use are ones you play via mic, piezo, etc. 

 

Actually lets just keep this simple and say no synths period.

 

Also let's not get cute here and get into the discussion of midi and all that it really is just sample and mic thassit.

Hi all,
I recorded some voices over the microphone of my computer and made drums and funny sounds with it. Layered it and build a simple drumset + fx. The rest comes from the sample.

Thanks @dgtlbeatsIt was good fun and I experimented a lot :) the tune consists of 3 beat sketches in total, looking forward to hear all the tunes. Also please excuse the rather lousy mixdown I just didnt find the time to do it.

Have a great week everyone!

Congrats on the win.  Loved the sample. Added a vocal that I recorded with my phone. I really shouldn't be allowed near mics.

s/o to @dgtlbeats for the solid material. (dude. please dm the vinyl, I gotta cop.)

had a completely different beat using live bass and rhodes but I came to conclusion that I suck at both... hahaha :c

Everything was pulled from the sample and tediously edited and resampled to fit the track. If you listen carefully, you'll notice some of the beepboop synth in the snare the the kicks (i tried really hard to notch them out). The track took less than a day to produce. I'm fairly proud of the output since the sample, while absolutely awesome, was very noisy and had a lot of DC (as most sampled vinyl will). I had some vocal takes over the first flip but felt it took away from the track. Overall, I just wish I could've made it louder but the track is so dense I didn't want to kill your ears. Thanks for listening and please tell me what you think!

if you're interested in how I made the track, hmu on soundcloud.

sup guuuyss,

here's my flip this week, special edition (well, at least for myself tho' hahah).

Flipped the sample (the end somewhere with the rhodes, love the rhodes), used one of those vinyl cracks for a bass kick (more processed then a vegetable). 

Played guitar, baseline (but on the guitar really), talk box, and did the vocals.

The drumroll is me pounding a cardboard box (with a dynamic mic inside and gated reverb on it).

Vocals are in flemish/dutch. Not sure who, besides Joa, will understand anything, but it's kinda what I do (now and then). It's been a year and a half since recording, so this was a nice warm-up/getting back into it. It is hard work but it was fun. Look forward to do more of those things. 

For those who care:

I went totally new school on this. While I was making this beat and humming the lyrics in my head, I realised it sounded A LOT like a song I knew from last year's NBA2K17 (shout out to all my 2K players!). As a matter of fact, looked it up and used it for reference (Partynextdoor featuring Drake - come and see me ). 

The song is basically about my conscience talking to me, telling me I'm not doing shit again with me trying to make excuses telling myself even if it doesn't look like I'm not doing much, I'm still working on something. But my conscience is not impressed with whatever the effort is I'm doing and insists my work ethic is shit and I need to do more to achieve something. I think a lot of us have been there being tough on ourselves for no reason hahah. 

Have fun listening. 

Peace y'all.

Congrats on the win DGTL!

Hey All, Not really hip hop but I hope sonically enjoyable. All sounds from the choice sample and me with a microphone. I thought the rules were great for experimenting and trying something different for a change. I really appreciate different kinds of rules. Who wants to do the same thing every week? I just hate that I am going to be behind KOW again this week.

peace,Hugh
