(I’m giving this BB more time off the bat since it’s been slow lately)

Rules:

1 Lenght over 2 minutes and 30sec (unfinished or WIP still welcome to post :slight_smile: )
2 Introduce some evolving automation, play with filters, panning etc, just make it obvious or on the nose if you will.
3 Use one of the drum samples as a melodic sound. Example: a bass out of the 808 kick, etc.
ps: As per my traditional bb add-on, the use of (human) voice samples or recording your own voice in any capacity is allowed and unrestricted, as long as you keep the content copyright free.

Beat Battle General Rules:

Beat Battles take place over the course of two weeks. The first ten days users will have to arrange, upload, and post their track to this forum. After this, the next three days users cast their votes for their favorite track. At the end of this, the winner will be announced, and they will then become the next Beat Battle host, and will have one day to construct a battle pack and begin the next Beat Battle.

Unless otherwise stated, the only sample/audio sources you may use for your song must come from the battle pack.

In the event of a tie, the battle host will decide the winner.

Ps: All skill levels welcome. Feel free to leave a blurb of feedback to the submitters. Please keep feedback constructive and don’t be dicks to each other.

Stumbled across this last night and threw myself into it. Kinda like what I’ve got so far.

I’m gonna aim to have something ready for the 25th, but with other commitments it’s gonna be a bit of a rush job. :smile:

A couple of days early, but also my last chance to finish it.

Edit: I hope I’m doing this right. All sounds originated from the samplepack, but some are quite heavily processed or significantly pitched up/down. The melody is from the 808 Bass; some of the drum hits were originally rattling sounds from the field recordings; some of the sounds are played back through a granular synth using spectral and grain algorithms…

The automation rule was only really applied to the melody which plays for 16 or so bars in the second half…

Whether it’s eligible or not, I thoroughly enjoyed working with this limitation. I think the automation rule significantly improved the melody section, which was otherwise a little dull.
