Beat Battle 61 - Calling all the MelloHeadz and Foley's.
 
Beat Battle Sixty One

Calling all the MelloHeadz and Foley's.




THE RULES

  1. One of my all time favourite chill-out albums is by KLF - [Only registered and activated mad cunts can see links. Click Here To Register...]. Take note and think ambient. Your track must be ambient, down-tempo, easy listening, chill-out, soundscape, whatever floats you boat. This is about making a track that you sit back, close your eyes and takes you on a journey. The idea with this is all submissions will be different sounding, but similar enough that they could be blended into one long soundtrack of different tracks.
  2. Only the sounds in the sample pack are to be used. You can apply effects. Load them into samplers/synths. You are not allow to user any other synth additions /sound sources i.e: waveforms, samples, instruments, etc. This is all about mixing the sounds you have into something musical and rhythmical.
  3. There are no drum samples with intention, your 'beats' are to be made up from finding your own rhythms within the samples and timbres you make. Use delays, reveebs, modulators and so on to create your space. That's it. No time limits, tempos, track construction.

As an idea and only and idea. Once you have finished your composition, export the stems for each part and keep it or send to me as a link. I have an idea (I'm thinking concept) :2gunsfiring:which don't come too often!

All times are UTC.



THE CHALLENGE


The Battle Host must provide a sample set to be used for the battle. These samples are the only sound sources allowed, unless the Additional Rules for the battle state otherwise. The samples can be anything that the Battle Host has the right to distribute for non-commercial use.

The Battle Host must create three Additional Rules. These can allow or require additional sound sources, or impose any kind of new requirements.

THE CONTEST

Anyone can enter the Battle by posting a link to their entry in the Battle thread. Unless the Additional Rules state otherwise, any processing is allowed and the source samples need not be recognizable. The Host may disqualify any entry that does not meet either the general rules or the additional ones.
[QUOTE]Once the submission deadline is reached, the winner is elected by posting votes in the same thread. Anyone is welcome to vote whether they participated or not. In case of a draw, the Host designates the winner between the submissions tied for first place.

Want to get in on this... How much data is the download? Currently having to replace alot of cables, as somehow the dog got in and chewed through 3 HDMI's, power cable, 2 firewires, tv power, aux cable and speakers power cable - headphones are intact but yeah (thankfully I disconnect everything from sockets as I'm a church mouse these days... So Fido is fine phew) I will be hunting for new cables but I also gotta top up data... Would help greatly if anyone could let me know so I can try minimise cost, cheers :)

Approx just under half a gig. Bow if you wish, as it did cross my mind, I can reduce the biter ate from 32 to 16 for people and have a second link. Let me know if needed.

No worries pal, very chuffed with raiding the pennies and not even touching the bank. Switched to O2 for a better data bundle, got some refurbished HDMI cables from someone with a hell of a lot more patience than me, picked up 4 for a tenner, dug out an old aux thats seen better days but still works fine, and fixed the power cables myself... though they're now running through a power surge protected gang extension... sigh... FL studio won't bloody open now. Will get on the downloading tomorrow, its been too long a day as is. Cheers for coming back to me on that though buddy, should be fine with half a gig for this... assuming I don't have to fix FL now too.

Ive got a few barely related scetches strewn about my timeline that i will scramble to connect in a wild panic last second as per usual. Or who knows i might find a few hours to do a proper thing. I keep side chaining stuff all over the place and running out of cpu. I wish i could take the plunge and resample shit more often.
