BB80-Open Genre

Rules:

  1. MAKE YOUR OWN RULE: Invent a creative challenge for yourself that would actually be useful to you in someway. It might have to do with something you want to learn or delve deeper into or want to challenge yourself with or just induce a creative limitation for yourself. For example I might limit myself to Waves plugins to finally explore what all of them do or I might want to learn more counterpoint and challenge myself to use that. * Mention what your challenge was along with your sub.
  2. Use a flanger somewhere in your track.
  3. Include a minimum 10sec passage of a non-percussive instrument playing by itself in the track. It can't be in the very beginning or the very end of your track.

* Additional voice samples are allowed.

Samples:

THE DEADLINES
Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting this *Sunday
Submissions close and votes open at 23:59 11 days later( *Thursday)

Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day (*Saturday).

The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (*Sunday), to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.

THE TIMES ARE CHAOTIC AND CHAOS IS GOOD!



All times are UTC


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.

Ooh Im thinking jingle time...been wanting to do a jingle beat battle for a while, this may fit the bill

30 sec earworm jingle with a 10 sec break - could work...need to get my second IDM50 sub in before deadline, but will find time for this. Then my goal of actually finishing a production that could be classified as an EP/Album and see if it meets the merits of an IDM release....hahahhaha

Re: BB80-Open Genre

I have an idea for this one, one I've wanted to try and am overdue for partaking:

All sound editing (post sample prep), manipulation, and generation in Max/MSP.

Re: BB80-Open Genre

My rule is that I’m only using one instance of eq plus one other effect unit on ever mixer channel. Just trying to use less stuff in general. Rule doesn’t apply to mastering tho

Hey bud, you should post a track this time even if you think it’s too short and sucks etc. a. It probably doesn’t suck. b. everybody’s tracks get like 20 listens lol so I wouldn’t worry about it.


EDIT: lmao typed this on my phone and it autocorrected to “you stupid post a track”. Jesus.. not calling people names up in here

If Halftrek doesn't submit we'll have to find him and rope him up to a tree while we make him listen to all our silly mixes.

Yeah you are right, I shouldn't worry to much about it. You guys just make pretty decent stuff out of it, want to not stand out too much And I never seem to be able to make something basic to build up on

Last one was just basically a 2hr slicing and making sounds session followed by two weeks of not working on it, so..yeah

But for this one I just need that prep monkey to arrive in the mail and I'll be good to go!

Re: BB80-Open Genre

Hello there. Sorry for being absent. I'm happy to find that the BBs are still going

Here's my attempt:



I used this challenge as "an excuse" to try building a just intonation scale, where the tonic relates to the tempo (in this case 128PBM = 273,066 Hz.).

I then manually did the calculations for various scale intervals I wanted to use, and tuned every tonal part in the track according to the results (using Ableton's built in "Tuner" plug in).

After a while I realised it wasn't a particularly smart way of doing it, so I ended up buying TAL's sampler instrument to make it easier for myself (it allows you to load .tun files). The TAL sampler is not used on this track, though - but it's a very nice sounding piece of equipment indeed!

i really feel this! it's so appropriately minimal and moves really well. using the tonic based on the tempo is an interesting approach, as well.

Re: BB80-Open Genre

Iyashi - I like the weird, strange dubby echo with the flanger on top. Different from normal dub, but very nice; chill. Cool groovey vibes.

mnkvolcno - i like the boxy kinda boomy synth along with the off beat sorta kick. Gels very nicely. Very cool groove.

Tsachi - This reminds me a bit of newer Autechre, like Exai and their NTS Sessions material.

My vote is going to Tsachi. Like the crazy, tech goodness with the pads. Takes me to some kind of post-apocalyptic wasteland where machines are still advanced and used regularly, tho the rest of culture has collapsed. Cool stuff!
