      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

Congratulations everyone! Great sample, the arrangement makes for a ton of possibilities. Sounds are out of the ordinary too, which is fresh. And the rules add challenge and spice!

Dope dope sample. Is this the same sample Primo used? I just remember an eminem freestyle over one of his beats that sounded like this.

This is going to be my first flip, I've only been producing for a month, so this should be interesting! There's so many directions you could go with this sample.

Yo this is a sick sample choice man.

sick sample, seriously, such a pleasure to work on man, quick question: "outside bass is allowed" does this mean we can add our own bass in the form of a VST synth-bass, or does it have to be a sample as the rules state "synths arent allowed"?

IMO, Bass represents the lowest scale of a song, while lead synths, or melodic type of synth are usually located in the upper or highest end of the scale. So I'd interpret the rule like: do what ever you wanna do to create your bass, BUT DO NOT add extra synth elements for upper scale melodies, harmonies or whatever. ;)

Yeah, you can use bass VSTs. Back home now, so it's time to destroy this beat.
