SP-Battles

Ok, now that the voting is over here's what I have for rules. If anyone has any serious problems with these just leave a comment. You could PM me but if we're gonna make changes I'd prefer for everyone to be able to follow the logic. Anyway here we go...

1. All SPs only SPs. all chops, all sequencing. External mastering (E.Q., compression) is ok but don't rearrange anything. The exception to this is if any of the SPs have a useable time stretch feature that is disallowed to be fair to the ones that don't have it.

2. Winner of previous battle either picks / posts sample/s or designates someone else to. They may either post one sample / song as source material or a sample plus a breakbeat.

3. Only use elements posted for the battle. No extra drums from your library, etc. Anything left in your machine after you initialize the memory is fine.

4. Contest runs for one week. Voting runs for three days. Vote for somebody else, and explain your logic.


5. Remember to always include your name in the filename - it will make things easier :)

6. try not to upload your beats to those shitty zshare's and servers with waiting time - upload it for example here: box.net
(If you use SoundCloud, make sure your file is downloadable)

If you have any further questions - just ask them moderators!

Well that's it. These rules take effect for battle number six and on. Now get to work!





MV-Battles
->original topic

1. You can use only your MV with no external gear even to track out the beat. All done internally and a final WAV file needs to be recorded using the MV's mixdown mode.

2. You can use the internal mastering tool kit to polish your music.

3. You are allowed to use the internal synth in any way you want. Even if you resample the synth and create an instrument kit from it - it still is the internal synth.

4. NO ORIGINAL PATCHES should be used. Only the sample(-s) provided for the beat battle.

5. Transfer your music using the CD burning, USB transfer or direct master output recorded into PC.

6. During the creative process you can use any stimulants you would require, yes, even nagging girlfriends and shitty weed :mrgreen:

I know you made the exception for the 202- but can you record from your sp into an external recorder and back into the sp - so you can sample a sequence.



I know I'm a pain in the ass. this is the last question.

can't you just resample? or you mean a sequence of patterns?

sometimes i record a drum pattern, bassline, or chopped sample i made on the sp to a digital recorder -then back to the sp just to save space and it makes mutes easier. I have not been doing it that way in the battles, and I'm just curious if its allowed.

hmm well if it was just up to me i'd say no, cause it seems like it violates the spirit of SP only. then we start having to factor in "well can i use my external midi controller" and stuff like that. then again, i'm curious what other people think about this and if there seems to be a consensus in favor then i have no problem with it. i'm really trying not to be the one inventing the rules, that's why i ran the polls, but it's all good baby.

that's kind of the main thing with these challenges, staying within the confines of the original sample.

love your work btw (lbj).

I'm dont exactly understand what you mean by "chopp details", I'm not even sure what a DAW is- yeah, I know thats pretty bad. I never used a sp808 before but I dont think chopping is much different on any of the SPs. Someone who has used an sp808 help us out, let us know the deal.

here's some info on da sp-808 http://www.vintagesynth.com/index2.html

also to answer your question juxt a daw is a digital audio workstation like sonar, cubase, or pro tools. there r others but its mainly just a sequencer with virtual instruments n some recording capabilities. hope this helps out peeps

thanks for that link zeal, damn the 808ex looks loaded. I wouldnt think limitations would be an issue with the 808. to chop on the 404/303 you have to keep resampling and trimming with no visual editing. It doesnt seems any harder to chop on the 808 than the others (someone who has used an 808 please correct me if I'm wrong).
