Song Competition?

Postby Aciphecs on Wed Feb 09, 2011 6:40 am

I've notice there is always good, new music being posted on this site. On other forums some have contests for song of the month and similar competitions.

Would anyone here be interested in participating in such a contest?

Ruso, I'm not sure how this would work but throwing an idea out there.

Thanks :D

We've done a few contests in the past however we had sort of a mellow few months so the forums posts got trimmed by age. On that note if you guys are up for a competition we are more than set up to run one :).

Anyone up for a competition?

looks like its just ruso, aciphecs, and me. should it be something genre based? or maybe get together like 10 samples and see the best we can make with just that sample set? or make a full track out of nothing but the amen break ;) or something even crazier like a line from a movie or something?

If a comp were to be run, I'd do my best to get a beat done for it. The SP Forums have a thriving battle community going.

How would the comps be run though?

Not sure how an EMX comp would work... Is it even possible to compare synth only tracks in a competitive manner?

For an ESX (or even ES for OG electribers) battle how about following the SP forums rules? They're done by one person posting 1 song plus one drum loop or set (do you want the honor of choosing the battle, Ruso?). No outside samples, everything gets done internally in the ESX or ES (ie- FX, resampling). No extra samplers, synths or drum machines. Some outside mastering (EQ, compression) allowed. Allow one week or so for making beats, one week for judging. Winner gets to pick the next battle's samples.

Here's the SP rules in depth with Q&A.

if noone else has sample choices, and i'm doing this right, i nominate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDuHAN6RAJQ bob james-night crawler, sample startes at 1:46 or so, and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=np5VvHx-1T4 barry white- im gonna love you just a little more baby, drum break starts at the start of the song. dont know if i am supposed to be clean them up and upload them, or if anyone is opposed to sampling youtube, not always the cleanest samples but on the same hand the esx isn't the cleanest sampler so i feel they go good together. and there is soooooo much classic vinyl out there on it.
