carrying on with the steely dan thing so you have another week to work on your entry


So we work on the same thing, or choose something new to do?

sure is quiet round these parts...

so I"m gonna try to rework my beat...take some of your advice. namely:

get rid of the scratched out horn thing
bring up the bassline but eq down the low end cuz it's possibly distorted
add some snare rolls...I had one in there at the end, BC...^_^
i guess find another loop(s) for some melody...

anyway like I said before i wasn't really interested in looping SD ish so I was trying to scratch out loops on my Numark...guess it didn't quite sound right.

anyone else reworking beats or anything? sup.

^^^Art looks pretty good...I like the concept of using the same font from the boards but I feel like the album title text could be positioned/sized a little better..

Anyway what's up in here? I can compile the album if nobody else if up for it. Haven't heard much from anybody this week.

I tried to rework my beat and it sounds shite. I might try again...anyway my OG beat's not terrible...I've sliced it up a bit to make it more interesting and toned down on the goofy horn sound...EQ is all good and car tested so I'm fairly satisfied with mine...

sup?

sup?


'sup is that despite the fact that i downloaded the albums last sunday and chose "hey nineteen", i was blindsided by your everyday run-of-the-mill common cold, and that KICKED MY ASS - had me laid out most of the week. between that and being back in school, i didn't get one lick of work done on a beat.

i still really want to though... as i said before, i don't care if it's not part of a battle, as long as i can get in on the album...

opinions on giving me a late pass? anyone...? bueller...?

Most definitely...if anyone else has beats I think deadlines are an afterthought now as this thread has fizzled pretty badly...but I'm still excited to put it all together...

We need to start a new battle tomorrow instead of Sunday, who's down? Also, who won last weeks? This whole Critique Week was kind of a bad idea, I guess, or enough people didn't really help out.

Steeling Dan --- let's get some more beats going, whenever we compile that will be the deadline...

Like I said before I can compile the beats...unless someone else wants to ...

a little thing called work

gets in the way every fckn week...man I miss the days where I worked at the arthouse theatre across the street as a projectionist. that was the best job ever...dark, listen to music all day, work with film...i could go on and on it was near perfect...but I had to move on eventually...

now my job sucks the life out of me and I have zero free time. yay for that!

Fine with me, I guess the purpose is to get something similar to an album, and since most tracks are pretty short I don't think a little extra material would hurt :D

I turned the bass down a little, rearranged the pattern a little, removed some and added some..I think it's better.

red- yours sounds pretty f&*king dope now. if you play it low so you can only hear the drums, it sounds like 'get it right' from beat konducta india

bill- not sure yours sounds any better or not. i might have even liked the old distorted drums better--not sure...

aj- yeah i like the new hi hats. not that there were too many the first time, but maybe they could have been softer or more sloppily arranged (like jayred's)

this was pretty bad huh... only 4 redo's? i say we go back the regular battle asap...
