Hey all, thanks again for all the positive feedback! I really do hope I am not destroying the monthly battle with the following....
For this monthly battle #10
, I layed a little scheme
with my man nbtbl.
We met today and recorded a bunch of stuff. It's basically us playing every instrument (or kitchenware, jackets, boxes...) we could find in my flat or what nbtbl the hardware geek brought with him. We can play a little everything, but cannot play anything any good. You are about to find out the hard way. Also, we kept it super raw/unedited and pretty much onetaked everything. So don't be too harsh on us. We just had 3 hours and wanted to get a lot of stuff. FOR YOU. SELFLESS ACT. THAT SHOULD COUNT FOR STH.
We prepared 7 folders with hopefully everything you will need.
1 misc instruments (us noodeling guitar
, organ, ....)
2 bass (both live bass
, also with single notes)
3 kick (synth kick and my cupboard drawer which got hit by nbtbls knee
4 snare (banjo case, a puzzle box, and what not
5 perc (loooooots of stuff can sound like a shaker)
6 one track were we jammed a bit on a simple 2 chord thingy to get started (first one we recorded), we just had croissaints before, not that much of an energizer.
- You must use something from the provided recorded samples, because...
- You may use no outside anything
(we did not record us singing, that would completely ruin us, we are making a fool of ourselves already here). So yes, if you find a sole vocal in a sample or get it from a sample pack or sing it yourself, yes. This includes acapellas n stuff as well. But NO KICK, NO SNARE, NO MUSICAL SAMPLE, NO NOTHING!!!! Deal with it...you got a whole month to make it work. However, there are some plain notes we played, so that you can put that in a sampler and make some melody or instrument or whatever out of it.
- If you think our samples suck (truth hurts but it would be ok) you may record something yourself
. But it has to be recorded. Plug in your guitar, your grannys (not u Granny D) organ, put on a mic and record you on the drums or whatever you want. BUT DONT USE YOUR SAMPLE LIBRARY OR VSTS. IT HAS TO BE RECORDED.
To keep it a little interesting:
Special Rule: MANDATORY!!!!!
-Make 2 parts of a beat. One part should represent a more female/feminine version of your track, the other a male/masculine sounding beat. To quote Joa "without being misogynistic of course." What you make out of this rule, is completely to yourself. But do something with it.
Ok, no more time to hide it...here are the samples
Please don't hurt us.
