To be clear, no outside instruments, but sampling skits. vocals, audio from films etc. are ok right?

Rules are fun this week, sad that lots of people dont see the challenging side of use rules.

I really dont understand how 319 was won by a +3 minute beat and a other that not "contain two very different beats.". Respect to the winners but dont know why people vote them. Right, great beats both but i think its hardest make 2 beats on 5 days than only one. Tracks longer than 2 minutes allows show more stuff, smoother transitions, longers intros etc...unfair compared to only a 2 min one.

Only a respectful observation, if most people are happy the way competitions works good for them, 320 will be my last participation here for this reasons. No hard feeling, just this isnt what I want so im leaving.

Thanks everybody, I learn lots of things and had much fun.

i didn't even notice this had happened. so really the only rule is to use the given sample?

the 2 minute time limit rule is stupid, the only reason why it keeps popping up as a problem is because the thread creators just copy and paste the rules from the previous threads and no one has bothered to take it out. but yeah if there is a special rule like last time where you were supposed to have two significantly different beats, or this time with the topic, and the winner didnt follow that rule... then whats the point? these kind of special rules unique to each battle make the battles much better imo, they should be followed and if some didnt, they shouldnt get votes

The 2 min thing That I have to agree with Constrobuz, is a load of ball hang I've gone over it since summer last year, I've done the same thing on the MPC battles got rid of the time limit, I'm sure one of the veterans can explain about the old 2 min limit and why, and If I'm meant to lose because of copy n pasting tactics (which I did, and funnily enough, I forgot to remove the time limit) when my beats change anyway there was no push there for me, played into my skill set, then fuck that, and Shane got 4 votes it was a 3 way tie, by rights he should of won,and I feel pretty shit!! as I got the battle up and running and then found out, that was a proper Hiphop battle beat he made. but it's peoples taste, you might think your beat shit's on everyone, but to 90 other beatmakers it doesn't and the fact only half vote is a bigger joke than anything, you gonna have the front to make a beat, then dam well vote "and now we are all misinformed the mental health issue Schizophrenia, means you hear voices in your head, constantly need reassuring, some cases are worse than others and some can manage a decent life if they're supported, Multi- Personality Disorder is what it was as that is a change, sorry but it was pissing me off all week. Rules are badly titled they need to become objectives. It's simple your get votes if your beat is good. I've noticed something though, people are dropping off and the plays are going down, and people have been through hell over the last two weeks, be nice if we could stick together like a Hiphop community should, but people aren't getting what they want.

My 2nd sample I haven't got a clue what it is yet as my daughter chose it, (yes she can open soundforge and change file formats and type, she can also load a drum kit on maschine, and she's not even 6 yet!) I picked the western sounding tune from Django Unchained, and gave you some breaks, that have been run through an SP1200.

i personally think a 3 minute limit for all beats is perfect, just enough time, not too short, not too long.

Good stuff. To sum it up, no more 2 minute rule, and those that don't follow the other posted rules, their votes don't count. Correct?

Sorry yall. I shouldn't have put anything down for my vote. I really couldn't decide, so when I counted them up last night after the deadline, I didn't count mine because it was confusing. Since I started doing these battles, I always take the time to listen to everything and try to vote fair by the rules. Of course, everyone is influenced by their tastes in music, but I feel you all on the complaints. It was a flaw in how people voted.

Shouts out to the people that did vote though, there was and has been a really low number of voters compared to entries. I'd like to see someone post a rule saying "that if you don't vote and you win, you forefit". I know it's time consuming and all, but it's really half of this contest. And everyone should speak up about problems they see to keep this thing legit. So, speak up you all!

@NTRZZ - Hope you stick around, man. You always bring something different everytime. Maybe we can sort this out. Thanks for the vote, also. That was the first one I've had. ;)

Type in the Captcha, don't hit enter, and click "Download Now" under the Captcha in black text. That worked for me.

HAHAHA! Just heard sample 2. I saw them that year on tour. And yet now, I never listen to em at all...either way, I wasn't expecting that one. There's some great snares in there and those harmonics at the very end are dope.

I am totally down with the two minute rule, or for that manner, any constraint that the rules include. I take it as a challenge. If you are good enough, it really doesn't matter how long the track is. Some of my favorite beats are only about 30 seconds.

That being said, I am totally down with what NTRZZ said in his post: it always seemed ridiculous to me that so many people were going over the limit/not following the rules and still got mad votes for it. I respect the musicians here so I like to follow the rules as close as I can.

Yup, use what ever you want from the samples, get that special rule going though, that ain't optional.

And by the way all of you who keep going on about the God Dam Time limit as a rule seriously,SHUT THE $@#! UP!!!!!!!!!!

if you can actually prove time exists I'll listen, but you can't as it is always NOW! I wrote this now, your reading it now, see!

The whole 2 minute thing was the way they used to do it, because of the server there were limits and as Constrobuz has said and I've now said twice, it doesn't bloody matter, and buy the way can we please wave a flag for SHANE he got screwed too be Honest it was a 3 way tie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
