OK so it's basically going to be a beat and filter-swept drones. Wait is that 90% of electronic music

What's the other 10% again... Just the filter swept drones with no beat right? :problemofficer:

Awesome Thomas, ticked all the boxes. Boss wave at 1:15 really like the breaks, the bass you added and the contrast between sections. It's catchy in an eerie/alien way - Nice work
Nice work, right over. And thanks

Im hitting the 172 on this one...and loving it!

Just to be clear 1 instrumental plugins means only 1 sound from that plugin or 1 plugin using several sounds

Difficult to make the rules without interpretation and dissection isn't it
Sorry I didn't reply sooner, been away landscaping with no internet and must have missed this post somehow. You can make an instrument, and can macro within it and apply fx to it. All the more power to you if you can make an instrument that can morph indefinitely. Just share the magic after

So... a single multi-voice/multi-timbre instrument is right out then?

Sorry, bit confused by the right out bit so I'll be as detailed on this as possible...

It's perfectly acceptable to have a multi-voice/multi-timbre instrument, just so long as its all contained within one patch on the plugin. Extra modulation is acceptable with layering effects... BUT - it has to sound alien.

That means (for example) morphing from a pad sound to a lead synth, so long as both of them sound a bit weird and warped... just do your best that's all anyone can really ask

N.B. Cloning the instrument is not acceptable i.e. having 2 instances of the same patch running the different timbres at the same time is cheating. However, feel free to make as many instruments off the sample pack as you like. Also, you may make an instrument... It's not mandatory

Hope this clears up my lack of explanation on the rule earlier. Hope this hasn't messed up anyone's workflow...

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

I was thinking about using bliss and see what I concoct out of a vst instrument stack into it
Actually stuggling on this one. That bass sample is nasty, although once micro'd down to one simple waveform of the whole theres something useful

Never used bliss, or heard of it until you said. What does it allow you to do? I've been toying with buying Razor from NI... I have enough money for it now, but I'm playing it safe until next weeks pay (though that doesn't help with the current battle )

Yeah the Huge Synth sample is obscene to say the least, I chopped it up too then looped on itself to try clean it up before using it as an instrument (I don't think it made much difference tbh)... I've updated version up of the 172 track I posted before (minor mods to lead - put some swing on the beat - some weird warped outro that doesn't quite fit yet... but I like it anyway lol), just struggling to find the time to sit down and finish it - I haven't even got round to creating an instrument for this one from scratch... Here I was thinking of getting 3 subs done... ha...

DSP Bliss is by George who does Discovery and more. Basically a vst sampler and auto scales not got my head into it entirely but worth checking out.

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

Hey guys, as I have been focusing on work and keeping my children from killing each other for the past week I have only put three samples together into a project and looped them so far....so I am going to have to bow out of this as I will not be able to do anything worthwhile by Tuesday. Will vote for sure. Happy mixing!

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

I'm nearing completion on mine. I felt like it started strong but I was never able to do as much as I wanted with it, so it kind of loops for 2.5-3 minutes. It's a damn nice loop, but it just fails to do much imo. I think (and this is just my guess because it's my first time trying to do hip hop) that the lack of vocals is a big limitation, but I really don't want to try to rap for the first time in my life and record that for all to hear on my USB Rockband mic either.

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

Right got something laid down, some fine tuning tomorrow night and Tuesday night polish the turd.

Struggled on this one, started really positive but time and life has been my nemesis this time round.

Looking forward to the subs though

It might be a bit late to suggest this, but you could work to a rap acapella to form a structure and variation guide, then remove the vocals when you're done.

I won't have time to do this for my sub, but I may re-work it for a release just to try that workflow. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

This my final submission, don't have anymore time to fiddle with it before I get back from work tomorrow.

It's 172 BPM Dirty DnB It doesn't contain an external plugin instrument, I have just reworked the samples in the pack with fx plugins.

(was going to resample the bassline as my plugin instrument but CBF not enough time - may come back to it in the future when I get more fluid with it)

Anyway hope you enjoy it regardless of the insanity.

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

Here's mine, 95 BPM, my one instrument is a Hive preset that comes in around the 2 min mark, first as stabs, then as the melody. I just open up a pair of filters, nothing too fancy.

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51



Personally this was a rollercoaster of a beat battle to get a track done. Started of with some weekends beats in Maschine and all going well. Then to find and fit in the other sounds with a bass, lead, melody and other sounds. Sod to work with. Didn't touch it for about 5 days and then came back to it Sunday thinking I might just submit the beats.
The organ stuck out, the bass sample I could not get in tune or to fit so ended up editing it down to a few of the waveforms and tuned with some rbass and slate digital VMR to get a nice sound. Then Sunday eve hit a melody and chord. Went digging into Divas sounds and came up with the lead sound which bonded well with the synth sample in the pack.
The extra sound is from Diva (the carousel style sound that I have tried to make as alien as I could).
A few glitches on the beats as a finishing touch and mixdown.
Hope it works. Bit more poppy than IDM but it fits the 172BPM with I like to think an alien abduction movie soundtrack. Still rough round the edges, times a struggle at the moment and will probably revisit it post BB to rework as Im currently doing with some others.

Loving the latter part of your sub with those breakdowns and bass rips. Nice!

I can her where you mind was at in producing this one, the title packages it nicely.
