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 16/09/2016.
Submissions close and votes open at 23:59 on the 11th day, Tuesday 27th September.
Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day Thursday 29th September.
The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day, Firday 30th September, to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.
1. The track can be scape, breakcore or a combo of both you decide...eno meets the fucked up sounds of ultra fast heavy distorted beats.
2. Only the samples provided to be used. They can be processed and there must be distortion which ever route you take...plenty of it. No other sounds to be implemented or vst instruments. As many vst effects as you choose are fine. THis is all about innovation and being resourceful without breaking the construct.
3. The track must be produced around a scenario. A place, a scene, a scenario.
Your mission is to take the listener to a place and tell a story with your sounds.
Think smart, innovative and creative...take us on a journey voyeurs of sound.
Shit! Wtf is scape?? Or breakcore? And how good are y'all at recognizing samples?
HeeHee. Scape well it's a term I've used for a while. YouTubes your friend for Breakcore and Brian Enos your friend for scape . . Enjoy the journey.
Sample recognition....read historic BB threads . They're good at it. and generally reflected in the voting system 😘
Now u got it. Nearly dropped in an Amen but that was just too sporting. Enough in there to conjure up your magic Mr Liquid .

Not sure about the magic part. I was just looking at Soundcloud stats and judging from it, I must be the opposite of King Midas. Listened to one of my last tracks I labored over and was like, aw hmm meh...
But I sure had fun making it, so whatever.
As for this here challenge... Gonna break out Ohmicide and Decimort as well as not so subtle saturator settings. Hope I find time and inspiration.
Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
man.. I use whatever. I'm an FL studio guy and there are a lot of fun ways to mess with stuff in there. The built in slicer (slicex) is really awesome. I use the built in sample also, it's ok but pretty decent. Then there's another built in sampler called Directwave, which is like a stripped down version of Kontakt.
Sometimes i'll run a sample through an effects chain and then render that. Then I'll load that into a sampler. Sometimes I just throw audio into the playlist (kind of like audio/midi tracks in a regular DAW).
It's really whatever. I think a cool thing to do in BB's is just do every weird idea that comes into your head and keep rolling with it til you got a track on your hands.
Nice! Maschine would be dope. @[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register] , are you using audacity to prepare/edit the samples before sticking em in a sampler? That is what I do in pro tools. Build a handful of instruments for kontakt and then build a bunch of one-hits for breaktweaker and battery. You still using breaktweaker? It is such a CPU hog! I kinda have a hate/love relation ship with it. I miss using Cubase. That was my first legit DAW. After two years, Logic is finally working for me. I used to use reason and FL into cubase, I liked that workflow.
