Beat Battle Idea
i had an idea for a beat battle... maybe i will wait till i get a soundcard and do this myself... but the idea is to take some sounds, like a drum kit, and a chunk of some record for a main sample, and make em sound like shit... like eq the shit weird, not to the point of clipping, but just to make it all wack and then have a contest to see who does the best job of making the drums knock and repairing the shit so it bumps, in addition to also flipping the sample creatively, etc.
or maybe use a dope ass sample off a real scuffed up thrift-store record that pissed you off cuz it turned out to be damaged. i know everyone else must have a few of those.
just a random thought anyway...
i did that for a beatcompetition with the roland tr808 samples, pitch them en effects en filters and shit
this is what i made of it(its pretty freaky)

You know, this is funny........
I had a similar philosophy to the internet beat battles. Why give good samples?
Most people can make a pretty decent, if not hot, beat out of good samples. Give them the shittiest samples you can find, see who can fuck it up and catch wreck. Some hard samples. Not necessarily dirty samples, just difficult to work with and piece together.
Maybe that's what I'll do on my site. \ /
ive got a hot idea how about yo go and get some vinyl or keyboards and then have a battle between your left and ur right hand see who makes the hottest beat or if ur lonely well u an figure that out
"read it again and see if you still think its a good idea"
hehehe... i hear you. that shit is pretty academic and pointless... i guess not too many people are as fascinated as i am by that kind of shit
A good beat battle...well not really a battle is to get about 10 to 15 sign ups then give a kit to the first person..that person creates the first beat and passes it to the next on the list...the next flips that beat and passes it to the next..and so on until the last person. The results would be a kit flipped about 15 times by different producers.
Sounds like a blast.
the guild crazy.
I aint really feelin that either poop shoot. I think a good Idea would be to post a plain drum loop and see who can chop,filter, and freak it the best. Just the drum loop. A drum track battle...............nevermind, its 12:06 I should save this beat I'm working on in my asr and just hit the sack. I got class tomorrow anyway. Why am I telling you all this, I dont know.
read it again and see if you still think its a good idea
