Beat Battle - Arena 51

ARENA 51


1) Open genre but you have only 3 tempos to choose from - 95/140/172 BPM. (Wheres mah house gone bruh?)

2) You may use 1 instrumental plugin (this includes voice) to generate sound - So long as it sounds alien/otherworldly/hi-tech...Think Area 51. All other sounds must be generated through the use of the sample pack or various fx plugins. (DA alienz stole mah house bruh!)

3) Your submission must be at least 51 seconds in length but no more than 5.1 minutes total... (Alienobody gut time fo dat...)

The Samples

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


Countdown until submissions close:

All times are synchronised to UTC.

Quote:
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 (3rd Mar 2017).

Submissions close Tuesday 11 days later (14th Mar 2017) 23:59 and voting opens at 00:00 (immediately after).

Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day, Thursday (16th March 2017).

The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (Friday 17th March 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.

Hope so, glad the samples are being put to good use ( @[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
I'm loving the spacey reggae feel) hope I covered the spectrum well enough for everyone... let me know otherwise, I did rush the samples last night a bit.

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

Something I've started on in 140 - still a work in progress. Going to try make a start in 95 BPM and 172 BPM later then probably pick the one with most potential to focus on... though might end up with 3 submissions

The way I've structured my tune (electrooooooo at 140bpm) means it comes to a natural end at bar 185 (5m15s) so I think I need to lose between 4 and 8 bars from somewhere depending on the interpretation of rule 3... Does 5.1 minutes mean...
a) 5 minutes and one second?
b) 5 minutes and one tenth of a minute (6 seconds)?
c) 5 minutes and one sixth of a minute (10 seconds)?
d) Other..?

Cheers.

I think 5.1 minutes means 5 + .1 minutes.

I reckon c) would be the correct answer - 60 / 10 = 6.

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

Popped in to see how it's all going. Got some inspiration from the two demo subs.

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

Re: Beat Battle - Arena 51

Just spent a couple of hours working on what will be my sub at 95 BPM. Right now, it's got a hip hop vibe (I think), but it's gonna need some more stuff to be a full song. I can't rap over it, so it's probably gonna need some nice synth melodies in there. We shall see. I suppose I should do some research and see what they do in hip-hop besides overblown subs (check) and spider sounds (check).

------------------
Also, check this out.

Still in progress, started on 172 (which is working out better than my 140 attempt I think)...

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
