man.. on the planning time to make a beat:ruedenz wrote: ↑Wed Sep 25, 2019 8:56 amGlad to see the monthly battles getting more recognition!
-> Dope ruleset Hugh, really loved all the challenges (hated them too a bit, but that's part of it!). I really took some time for this beat (it was much needed).
So there is this underwater-clocksounding fx percussion that I played almost all the way through. Picked a DG guitar solo that fitted the harmonies of my main sample. Also played a bit of guitar at the end myself. Speaking of the end...there is some 7/4 action going on. Man that cost some nerves. Lots of sprinkles, pianos, synths, FX, bass, vocal skits, and what not. Not sure if it's pleasant to listen to, but making this beat has been the most fun in a long time.
i think i spent more time on weekly this week than the monthly... to me seems having the month makes me less hesitant to put concepts to the side and work on weekly or other projects. end up not coming back until i'm like oh shit monthly deadline coming up this week... and still focus on that weeks battle more than monthly for whatever reason. have started something for every monthly and think have only entered 3 or 4.JoaGymshoe wrote: ↑Thu Sep 26, 2019 2:47 amman.. on the planning time to make a beat:
I started straight away and basically had what you hear now on the first day.. barring the spacious mix.. did that yesterday.
listened to it every once in a while but didn't get any inspiration for the arrangement or transitions.
when that crazy mix emerged yesterday I wished I'd have found more interesting ideas for a better structure etc.
these monthlies for some reason don't get the best outta me..
weeklies sorta do I suppose.. but often woulda liked to have a couple of days to let it rest and make improvements
which I still do sometimes in the weeks after.
