Yo,
Good show pencilface....my hats off to you for the good battle that round. Also, big up to the beat battle noob Genesis....you had a dope entry also and I hope you'll stick around in the future.

So I'm thinking we need to switch this thing up a bit. I want to know what everyone thinks? We need some new battles....so what are your ideas?

Ok here is a quick brainstorm of idea:

1. More sample than synth
2. Tag team battles
3. two samples fused into a new song
4. Make a prize for the winner...somehow, not really the best of the ideas, might take away from the art
5. Get a mutual website dedicated to posting up songs from the battle...

A quick drizzle

I'll keep thinking =]

more acappellas!!!!!

and if we want something like price for the winner, we should set up a free blog @blogger.com, put some adsense ads on it and with clicks by the board members here, we should get some money together within a month, winner gets the money.but we should do a pricebattle once a month then. and host of the battle should be a person who doesn't submit beats to the battle. and to avoid votes out of friendship or sympathy we should submit the beats anonymous. only the host knows the real names.

what do you think???????

i could set up the site, but i can't get a google account, since they kicked me out. and once you're out you can't get a new account

wow,
i was talking in terms of new things for the battles...
those are great ideas though. i would forget about having
a prize....that would be cool but i already know that it's
gonna be trouble somehow (especially if you're talking about
money.) i'd say lets just keep it friendly.

the acapella thing is cool....probably what the next battle will
be until we brainstorm more. it's tough getting quality acappellas
though. unless someone can use the phase reverse trick....i want
to try it but i'm lazy.

i got a request for a blend battle (someone elses instrumental with
someone elses vocals) but a couple of other people shot it down...
however i had no problem with it.

I'D REALLY LIKE to have a Soul Strut vs. Stones Throw beat battle...
that would REALLY be heated!!! :)

so say we do an acapella for this battle and keep brainstorming for
#10 cool? number 10 has to be special anyway.

I had a couple ideas.

Idea 1. Create a sample pack from which everyone uses to generate their track. The sample pack would include a variety of sound elements like a drum kit, record samples, one shot samples from gear/synths, etc. Given some time I could put together the first selection.

Idea 2. I could host a blind battle where whatever we flip is posted on my site (box.net hosting) as Track 1, Track 2, etc. and then you vote for the best track and I reveal who's submission won.

I think the format is fine, it doesnt need changing, using one sample only is better, no synths, whistles or firecrackers are really needed, are they?.... you can make bass out of any sound, scratches and stuff should be allowed, and drums only in my opinion.

ive only been following since stmb7, seems the last two originals were ultra ultra wack anyway. hope the next original has some juicy bits.

i like the concept as it is as well , although i like the idea of keeping it anonymous like outlier said ..so we are voting on whatever track , not knowing who made it
only because some people may be favoring there buddy

Well we'll work it out for #10...
For #9....we'll just do another
remix battle....I think the remix
battles are pretty dope anyway
because you can use whatever
beat you want as long as you can
match the vocals....

and the acapella is......

"DAAAAAAM!" - The Liks


RULES



1. Use whatever beat you want...just keep the acapella on beat.


2. No songs in pass the deadline.
.........

3. DO NOT submit your entry until the day of the deadline.
Friday the 13th (yikes!) @ 12am - 11:59. Voting starts Saturday the 14th @ 12am
until Sunday the 15th @ 10am.

4. Winner picks the original song for the next round.
Or He/She can pass the pick to someone else.

Some people don't like the remix battles and I apologize....but we'll see you next time
no hard feelings.

The Anonymous Submission Is a Good Idea



I Would Like to See Who Lord Quas Starts Voting For...




And I Think My Tournament Idea Is Key



It Takes Care of the Prize Problem Because Even Without a Prize If You Win a Tourney You Feel Like You Did...
MUCH More Competitive
I Think It Will Generate Much More Hostile Environment and May Even Start And End Some Beefs

at this point i don't care how this thing is ran anymore. i tried it this way....if you guys want to do it another way then that's cool but i hope the person that's proposing all the ideas will want to organize/moderate it also....the other ways proposed sound like they are a little involved and if you loose a round....it seems like it'll be weeks before you are able to get back in the competition. but like i said....i'm with whatever, just let me know the originals and where i need to post my music.

i like the original concept (if its not broken, don't fix it ) but i think we should have it be anonymous so you don't know who made each beat until the winner has been declared.
and maybe shorten it up , only give us like 2-3 days instead of 5 days to make it ..so then we can keep it rolling

i donīt know why everybody is having problems with the way it is running right now. to me it's about making beats and see how everybody else flipped it. this makes it interesting to me. this competition thing is cool but we don't have to exagerate on this. if there was a site for this it would be a different thing again but as soon as these things turn into a more or less big thing they turn out bad. and about keepibg it anonymous: we're in the internet with some random nicknames. this seems quite anonymous to me.

i like the anonymous thing but to do that, it'd be no more myspaces....

i think we should keep the time period now, people have other things to do throughout the week (kids, school, etc.)

well from april 21 - april 28, i'll be gone anyway so if one person wants to take it upon themselves to moderate or come up with a new system then that's cool (or not). in my honest opinion, and i'm not saying this system is the best but i think it runs fine as it is. if you all think people get votes because of favoritism then that's understandable....just like people don't vote for certain people because they just don't like them (yea)....bottom line to me is WHO CARES? there is no prize involved. we're just doing this shit for fun man (well we were at first.) if you aren't getting any votes in the beat battles....i don't know what to tell you, better luck next time i suppose...people are taking the STMB beat battle way too serious and i could see it meeting it's demise. seriously though...who's gonna step forward and change it? i'd really like to know so we can get it changed to a system that everyone can agree on and then we can get on with it and keep having fun. work this shit out man.

sums up the entire argument here. he's right: don't make it too complicated, or it'll fall apart.

as dr. octagon would say: "keep it simple!"
:mellow:

yeah, let's just continue with our routine.

a price would be dope though :)

but it just would get to complicated.

but what we could do one day, battles with other boards.

like bboy crew battles

we could call ourselves the STMB -Tigers or something even crappier
