Welcome to the 129th Beat Battle. For those who do not know already, there has been discussion about moving the Beat Battles to Metapop after this battle. If this ends up happening, I (who’s been here for a bout a month and has never before hosted a beat battle) seem to have earned the honor of bidding the site farewell. almost 130 Beat Battles is an amazing accomplishment!
As for the actual competition, I am a big fan of many video games and have put together a sample pack of noises I sampled from some of my favorites. The rules are the following:
You may use any number of the provided samples and process them however you want.
in addition you may use:
One synthesized/MIDI track: You can use a hardware or software synthesizer for this, or a VST with instrument samples such as Kontakt.
One recorded track: Record an instrument or some vocals, or use something from a sample pack. This can be just about any audio you have the rights to.
Speaking of rights, I feel obliged to add a quick copyright disclaimer. I do not own these samples. This use of them should be covered by the Free Use Clause as long as they are not monetized. As such, I would not recommend uploading these to spotify, apple music, etc. if anyone here does that. As long as you don’t do that, copyight should not be an issue unless a lot of you object.
Good luck! You’ll need to do some serious chopping and processing to get a real song out of this; I doubt it’ll be easy…
