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.
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.
Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting on a Friday. Submissions close and votes open at 23:59 on the 11th day (tuesday). Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day (thursday). The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (friday) to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.
Yeah it's really fun to play around with, and it sounds surprisingly good. I recorded it through a Boss ME-50 (guitar pedal multi fx) because that was the easiest way to get it into the interface as unbalanced. This is why there are two of a lot of the sounds, one is clean and the other is lightly distorted if you wanted more grit.
3 second sample, well riff passed through the xoxbox for good measure (2 bars at 148bpm which I think is less than 3 secs if not I disqualify myself, but it were fun).
Very rough....and ready oh and anyone with a sub let me know how the low end has resulted.
FWIW Lots of effects and audio processing to get this one working, which I like, no reverb just filters on filters, delays and saturation. With a lot of white floor noise.
