Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!
 
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 28th October
Submissions close Tuesday 8th November 23:59 and votes open at 00:00 on the 11th day.

Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day Thursday 10th November.

The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day, Friday 11th November, to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.

Late Submissions are void to receiving a vote

All times are UTC.

THE SAMPLES

[Only registered and activated mad cunts can see links. Click Here To Register...]

The Rules

1. Simples. Make something musical that lasts at least 2mins 30secs and if it sounds like EDM, you have failed, IDM for the win!

2. You must use at least 2 of the musical samples in their original form, however you can process with inserts on the track.

3. Be creative. Go outside your comfort zone. Make it interesting to the listener and not just you. The WOW Factor is "HOW THE FUCK DID THEY DO THAT".

There's a shit load of material and easy stuff to play with, want to get things rolling again. I have put together a pack that should help and I have purposely ensured they do not sound simply "remix". Youll see what I mean when you listen to the samples.

Im hoping to see some new faces and old timers in the one. SO GET ON-BOARD..PLEASE :drinks:

I'm feeling a little less inspired because of how much there is to work with, I feel weird about manipulating samples to make drums when there is drums available, and loops too!

Re: Beat Battle 42 - You make music! You make it happen!
 
which of those are the "musical samples" ? Is it the "le 1", "le 2", "le 3" samples ?

Make the main riff out of the drum samples and the drums out of mike tyson's voice

okay here is my real submission, it's rough, but the last beat battle I did was bb33 I think

EDIT: shit I just realized it's 30 seconds short, is there any exception? I don't have the project file and still want to be in the competition...
