too true. a clean cd sample, um, what cd is this on, warcraft installation disc #2? i mean... if i want to make a corny midi beat, i don't need to sample some corny midi song, i can compose my own corny midi beat.

potencia incisive, i liked your beat, i can tell you have taste... i can't tell if your arrogance here is tongue in cheek or not, but either way, consider showing your respect for the producers by dropping a real sample. it doesn't have to be the best in your vault, you don't even have to say what it is, but seriously, this song kinda sucks, no disrespect to you...

Sorry, but that sample is bullshit. Ever heard the expression that polishing a turd only creates a shiny turd?
Deliberately stating that you are not using something you consider good is basically an insult to the rest of the people in the beat battle; and this sample is primetime assgrease.

And no one really knows whether you are serious about not "sharing" your "sounds", but if you are then what the fuck, man? Have you seen ANYONE else come on this and go "Im not sharing my good shit"? Besides, whats to say that a bunch of people here arent already up on the wax you have?

If it was tongue-in-cheek then it was borderline funny, if it wasnt then Im pretty sure it aint gonna be appreciated by the good folk here.

And you wont be able to keep your imaginary title belt unless people vote for your beat, so maybe pissing people off will have a negative effect on that...just something to consider.

SEE AFTER ALL THE SHIT YOU PEOPLE BE TALKING, IMA HAVE TO POST A NEW SAMPLE FROM THE VAULTS....

YOU ALL SOUNDED LIKE LIL KIDS WHO DIDNT GET THIER GIFT THEY WANTED FOR CHRISTMAS.... WAHHH WAHHH :(

NEW SAMPLE WILL BE UP SOON....

NOW IM PISSED OFF...., ;) IN A GOOD WAY

REAL PRODUCERS WORK WITH ANYTHING, BUT ITS OK....ALL RESPECT AND FUN

GIMME AN HOUR TO DIG....


to be honest, I thought the sample was pretty goofy, but I also feel that it may not be the worst thing to try to work on something that you would normally NEVER work with -- remember Potencia HAS to use this sample as well, so no one is at an advantage aside from their own skill, technique and ears...

also remember, we had a two-way tie -- Matt still needs to post a sample -- maybe what Potencia posted would be more useful once we hear the second sample..?? (POST THAT SHIT, MATT..!!)

still I haven't listened to it since last night -- maybe if I listened again I would feel differently...

but to be honest as well, Potencia, my first impression of the song was that it was fairly un-usable -- especially after being told we've been blessed...haha

@ P.I

please be honest. do you really mean what you say about respect? are you honestly trying to challenge people musically or are you not willing to share?

Checking out your myspace, this isn't the kind of thing you sample. if you look at someone like mr dibiase, he does sample NES games and does it really well.

something like 8 beats & 8 voters for 52 & 53 and you making the effort to re-post something that's basically the same as the first post seems like a way of saying 'fuck you' to people that criticized it. don't take it personal....

if you're really stuck google dust2dust

Sugoi, are you saying that you think the new sample P.I. posted is basically the same as the first..?? if so I am not sure I agree with that (though I just quickly scanned the song) but it seemed better...

STILL - what I don't like even with this new sample is all the synthetic sounds..!! like to me it seems just about everything on this song was done on a keyboard not done with the actual instruments (I could be 100% wrong) -- but to me both samples lacked the soul that real instruments produce...

I haven't checked out MATT's sample yet...

P.I., I really don't think anyone means any disrespect, at least I certainly know I do not, but for whatever reason there has been a solid drop-off of interest in the beat-battles over the past few weeks (I remember in Battle #47 or #48 there were something like 12 - 15 beats in one week..!!) not that it's on you or any of the winners to "Save The Battles", but if you put some shit up that was really sweet it could help bring some interest back in here...

just some thoughts...

I pretty much agree 100% percent with this statement (as I pretty much said it myself earlier today)

BUT

you also basically said in the (original) first post that we weren't entitled your private stock of dope records and that we were getting something less -- kinda like how you don't feed the dog the delicious meal -- but toss it some scraps.

if you just posted the sample people probably still would have raged against it -- but to also say that you have STACKS of great records that you're not sharing -- well, I can see why people are a little peeved.

there is a part of me which agrees with you -- but there is a part of me which agrees with everyone else. I mean think of it logically, the better the sample the more eager everyone will be to kill it -- this isn't our job, we're doing it for fun and to learn -- no one wants it to be a chore...

I AGREE, I MEAN UNDERSTAND MY SIDE.... YEA I GOT A UNIQUE STASH OF RECORDS WITH SOME PURE FIRE SAMPLES, BUT REMEMBER AS WELL I SELL BEATS AND NEED TO EAT OFF THAT...

THE FIRE WILL ALWAYS BE IN THE VAULT,

MAYBE WHEN I GET MORE FAMILIAR WITH THIS BOARD AND SOME PEOPLE, THE TIME WILL COME...

FOR NOW JUST HAVE FUN AND MAKE SOME TRACKS PEOPLE....BATTLE HARD WITH WHAT U HAVE FOR THE TIME BEING...

THINK OF THE LOGIC,

"DOES A MULTI-MILLIONAIRE TOSS YOU 100,000 DOLLARS A WEEK JUST BECAUSE HE CAN OR DOES HE INVEST IT WISELY...."

SAME LOGIC APPLIES TO RECORDS AND DIGGIN....

AND I NEVER TOSS SCRAPS TO PEOPLE, COME ON LISTEN TO WHAT I POSTED CAREFULLY... THERE ARE SUM SICK SOUNDS TO WORK WITH... :P

cool man...I hear ya -- and like I said from the beginning I am pretty much with ya...

ok, I am gonna do my best to stop beating this horse (though sometimes I can't help myself - haha)

I'm also gonna do my best to work with what we got -- hell, I still plan on using P.I.'s first sample if I can make it work..!! It just bums me out to see all the backlash, overall it's not good for the (admittedly meaningless) battles...

Plus, there's always matticulous' Sample

good luck everyone..!!

2 cents:

1) no reason to complain about a sample. the record doesn't make the beat--YOU do!

2) no reason to hoard samples (even if you're getting money for beats). the record doesn't make the beat--YOU do!
