BB57 : It's all about the Bass

B57 BASS

1) Your track must be a minimum of 3 mins of a Dub Bass genre...think 60hz

2) You can use one instrument of your choosing one instant only to complement the provided samples.

3) You can add vocals of any legal source that you choose.

The Samples.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


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.

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.

THE DEADLINES
Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting on a Friday (26th May 2017 _ok one day late due to slackness!!!).

Submissions close Tuesday 11 days later (6th June 2017) 23:59 and voting opens at 00:00 (immediately after).

Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day, Thursday (8th June 2017). The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (Friday 9th June 2017 ) to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.

Late Submissions are void to receiving a vote.

ANYONE CAN VOTE REGARDLESS OF SUBMITTING ETC.




The Samples Countdown until submissions close: All times are synchronised to UTC.

Re: BB57 : It's all about the Bass

I guess rule 2 means one instance of one instrument. And I'm totally assuming that I can rip a commercial vocal from youtube because that's a legal source, right?

Re: BB57 : It's all about the Bass

As for rule 2, "one instant", do you mean like one note, or like one short like 10 second window or one quick solo?

Track 4 is what I think of, just click where it says track 4 and an annotation will start you there.

I think as Mrfx said "any subgenre", it would include dubstep crap. But there are many more possible variations. The first that would come to mind for me would be this kind of stuff


maybe check out this thread for more examples

oh really? that's weird. I guess that's how much of an umbrella term it is. Whateve -- I think the fun bit is how each of us will interpret "bass dub"

Re: BB57 : It's all about the Bass

Dub bass is your interpretation. There are many styles to fit this and I didn't want to pigeon hole any particular genre.
There is also something else that I am a aware of that this MAY bode YOU a foundation of or not.....!
One instant means one stem track patch if it's one note, sequence, riff, several bars...That's your choice.
Just not simply using a multi timbre instrument/plugin for bass, lead,melody,chord, background sounds etc so playing several parts in a track.
BBS are all about creativity and not painting by numbers. .. they are a challenge and deadlines all.

Re: BB57 : It's all about the Bass

Quick question,

What's the status on additive/spectral resampling? Does that count as another instrument?

Is it an instrument or an effect?

Is what you're using a standalone editor, or a plugin within an editor, or a thing that you put on some sort of instrument rack to play live within a DAW? If the latter, is it something that's integrated into your DAW or is it a 3rd party plugin?

I use a few tools on BB samples such as Paulstretch and Soundforge without fear of breaking rules on instruments. I also use midi controlled pitching effects like comb filtering, fft effects, and ringmod (if the built in oscs in ringmod plugins is a rule break, then so must be every LFO). There could be an argument to consider any sampler/slicer/whatever as an instrument, but it would be asking a lot for us to use provided samples without using a sampler... That's some Delia Derbyshire/Stockhausen level shit that nobody has time for.

I'd never assume using something like Kontakt or some other multisampler/virtual rompler/beatslicer/whatever would constitute an extra instrument rule break, unless there's quite a lot of synth built into it that you can't switch off... I can imagine using a synth that uses user wavs instead of internally generated waveforms being okay, especially if it's native to your DAW. There's very little difference between that and building the same kind of modular effect chain within/around a standard sampler or slicer.

I suppose it's down to your conscience and interpretation of the rules.

Not sure why its api.soundcloud? If its a private link just share the private link without embedding it as private links dont embed. Not sure just copy and paste the whole link in without the bb code maybe!

Ok here it is guys, thanks for the help! Oh and since I wasn't sure I ended up not using any additive synthesis! Not sure I got the genre right though but hell, I'm sure y'all will let me know!

Aw man, downloaded the samples and it's got Brostep written all over. This would take some doing.

Not a single skank riff in there?

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
