      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.

precisely. there are a few sounds within the track that can be tuned down to a useable bass sound.

whats wrong with using synths. they've been used in the other battles as well.

yea in beat battle 1 and 2 if i'm not mistaken....then we decided against it because if that's the case....i can go pull a sample from another song also.

let him submit his beat, how bouts you can use synths as long as the sample is the main part of the beat.

chill man...

it's not that we take it serious....there just has to be some uniformity.

i mean we have rules and no one else has a problem with them...and if they do, they just don't participate.

every battle, someone has a complaint about a rule and everyone wants an exception for something.

if we keep giving exceptions then we might as well not do it. if you can't make a beat without adding synth or etc....just don't enter a beat...i don't understand the big deal?

that's cool though man submit your beat......

so i suppose now everyone will be adding an extra bassline and synth to the song?

dudes --- i'm back in!!! i've made my beat already.. it's a relatively frantic piano number. i may have shaken off my beat making funk i got stuck in, and it's all thanks to someone not choosing some piss weak jazz funk cheese as a start point. good work!

we should stick to the rules!!!

like bigern said before, if you feel you can't make a good beat out of what was given to you, then just wait for the next round.

i think it's great, it pushes your creativity diferently as you can't use any synthies or other things that don't come from the orig. samplesource. so you got to find a way to make it sound how you like it.

i wish there would be more acappellas for the battle though.

i liked the battle with the common acappella.

i say stick to the rules and make a beat out of what is given. You can use certain parts of the tune to make that synth bass kind of sound if you know how to do it. If u want to be a rebel tho, feel free.
