Thanks for the votes guys. I am a rookie and should have put up a more difficult sample and tighten the rules for this battle. I am listening to certain requests. So here is my attempt.

nice beat 260 and nice rules. however, not sure you were the rightful winner. some of those votes came from people who have never contributed a beat dude, not sure if that was intentional or not. but definitely caught several peoples eyes. oh well, 261 here we go! what up Enzo! we doin this?

props erratic, good win!

I also think only the ones who submit tracks should be able to vote, that would cut peoples assumptions of making accounts to vote for themselves. Like keep your soundcloud in your sig or somethin.


wow listened to like 5 seconds of the sample and its dope, cant wait to get off work.

o,,
1st yo congrats g cuz i really enjoyed your flip and sample,, unfortunately cant make everyone happy and there is allways gonna be some cats that show up just to try to mess things up,, but alas who gives a fk.,, we here to make beats,, that it, haha ,, erratic and Bonnuci clearly made somthin dope and am glad we got cats at this caliber to show us whats up,, just sayin.. A lot of BS comes a long with these battles but its the community that keeps it cool and intriguing.. Since i started ive gotton mad hate mail from anonymous cats and seems like when i have a good week all these no names come to the forum to vote hahahaha ,, shit is sooo funny. But WORD ! its all about the music,, yo Erratik can u clarify what u mean by 1 variation ?? u mean like in your last flip only the first part ,, the 2nd WAS FIRE hahaha ??? cuz i def like layering and bringin new sounds in. instead of a stale loop.. and yo i think it ok if someone wins to join in again,, but u the winner u decide this week.. thinkn that just havin a sample with drums only is enough to deter most cats.. just my 2 cents
but seriously props to everyone and lets just try to have more fun with this shit instead of taking it too seriously,,and for u cats that aint gettin enough plays,, i can recommend commenting on other cats shit,, and if there is somthin u feelin aint no reason not to go back and comment again on the same track later in the week,, i see cats commenting makin their rounds but nvr come back to say YO i really am, feelin this",, i used to be more involved but aint got the time no more,, ( no more unemployment ,,ahahah)..
Just some ideas ,, WORD ! havent chked the sample cuz im battlin some malware on comp today :(
,, remember that this place is the shit and we all dope
haha
peace yooooooo

Congrats to Erratic and everyone who made dope beats and got kudos.

I don’t get the “winner cannot re-enter a hosted battle”?
You mean the winner skips the follow up?
I like when the winner takes part, but does something stupid and funny, just to be sporting, but whatever :)

I don’t think people should be allowed vote unless they have at least 10 posts, but whatever ...

Cool sample. Tons to work with.
I’m gonna do this with a ear and sinus infection.
Bring it on. LOL :blink:

hey i've always assumed that "no outside synth" meant "no outside synth/instrumentation/samples of melodic sounds."

Synth is just a way of saying instruments right? I heard like some horns or somethin on a couple tracks and nobody mentioned it, so I was wandering. basically, we can't play guitar on a track thats no outside synth, or use a sample of a flute from another track, correct?

Thanks for the help. peace

ps dope sample again. groove on this track is whats up

Zexual I like the idea of doin somethin wacky. I agree with the registered voter thing as well. Somehow it should be implemented as contestants can only vote. It's not fair to anyone including me if someone is following u on soundcloud and jumps in to vote. I don't want to go back under a rock because of politics again. ive been there before which made me disgusted in scratch battles. Let's just all have fun n grow keep the positive vibes and build. I got mad respect for everyone participating from all over the world. So let's start this battle!
I'll post somethin wacky today.

Synth means synthesizer like a keyboard or electronic synthesis from a beat machine. Technically most drums are synth because its an electronic recreation of a real sound, unless you use live drums. Samples like a horn from another track is a big no-no as I have gathered. Instruments is usually a separate thing like people will say outside synth and instrument allowed. What Im unsure about is VSTi plugins that use sample based libraries and play an actual horn sound when you press the keys. Ive never used these but wanted to cuz I guess its technically another sample but not from another song.

I think I saw someone mention only participants can vote. I like this idea, otherwise, it's just a popularity contest if you really want to win. Anyway, here's my flip.

Congrats erratic on the win, much deserved and I agree with the voting changes. You didnt make a beat, you have to have post's before you can vote. Sample sounds fun, cant wait to dive in

Fun change up with the rules this time. Sorry I've been dormant the last 2 weeks, working on my first record for Dusted Wax so I didn't have much time to flip the last two. Wrote this one in an hour. Sample was dope as hell:

man this some overly complicated shit happening right now....sure winning is sick and all, but shit, i get 33 comments on a piece where normally without the beat battle i might get 5 or some shit, im fuckin stoked on that. Lets remember guys, we're here to have fun. Stonesthrow isn't signing winners of beat battle or some shit hahaha.


whateva, i always took "no synth" to mean nothing but the sample and outside drums anyways. although i am a little disappointed about outside drums only since i just started picking up my old custom bass again....ahh the rock band days.

good ideas all around for the voting process, unfortunately it is ultimately up to moderators to persue this "inconvenient" chore of keeping track of 100 plus beat submissions and who's posting. we all know that aint happening. and if we are complaining about who votes then take the words ANY ONE CAN VOTE, EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T MAKE A BEAT out of this completely. that's called...say it with me, a contradiction. this is about makin music and sharing it with the other people from around the world. if u have that mentality everytime u participate then votes, plays, and following are secondary! peace grease and beat make

I flipped this sample about a year and a half ago when I was just starting out making beats and man, it's been a journey since then. These battles have really pushed me to use samples in a way I never did before so thanks to everyone here for the constant inspiration, critiques and encouragement. Yet another beat made on a plane. LOL

- winner cannot re-enter a hosted battle.


what the hell does that mean? AND .wav is nice for the quality but takes some time to download...


I would have no problem with "no outside drums", too -cause I can make a kick and a snare out of a duckfart...
I think i remeber the round seize mentioned- where we had no outside drums--- was nice-

the outside synth thing is obscure sometimes - cause if you take a minichop of 0,003sec you can loop it and is sounds like a Beep--- and with this beep you can do any synth u want...if you are into manipulation... but I think that's a trick you only do once and then the thrill is gone



4 the next round uPprhND and me will team up... but post only one beat!

hand eye - coordination is back

and don'T vote for us no matter what we do - cause sample we be a DUCKFART!!!hHhHhahahaahaa

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what this means:

- Only 1 variation of a beat as much as possible.

Anyone care to explain?

i think that means a dj premier "a million and one questions/rhyme no more" where the beat completely changes up half way through
