The Bellows 3. DubKidFlash
Please get new rules into me asap, new round due to start noon this Thursday.
Voting starts now! Deadline for voting is 12noon GMT on Tuesday 26th April
Sorry running at a bit of a weird schedule but been out of town for a couple of days, picked up a massive army tent for summer antics, and I am going to make this round a bit of an odd length too…
Deadline for submissions is: 12noon GMT Monday 18th April.
Genre: Any (Progressive?)
Time Signature: Any
Additional: You must include a period of silence or relative calm in the middle, “silent” compared to the general track mood.
The duration of this period must be larger than 8 seconds
Just Electrica Dharma samples. The permissible sound resources are any of the band’s videos on youtube or any other media such cds, dvds or other websites.
You can use this for get it on mp3:http://www.force-download.es/
Additional Rules: Renoise only. All features, functions, DSPs etc of Renoise allowed. No sample pack!
i don’t mind the tracking schedule, but i do mind the sound quality on that youtube video. seriously, i don’t mind bad quality but that shit is almost impossible to listen to. it does open up possibilities for very lo-fi sample-harvesting though.
Yeah it does say any of their music you can find, be it from Youtube or other places. Obviously I can’t condone anything illegal but maybe raiding parents/older alternative friend’s CD collections could be an idea
oh, i never thought i could only use that video. i just watched that one to hear what Electrica Dharma sounded like (never heard of them) and found the quality to be absolutely terrible. i am aware that we are not restricted, and we can use anything we can get our hands on as long as it is by Electrica Dharma. no worries it just occurred to me that if you want a way to get some lo-fi beats or crackle or whatever, that video is a good source because of the bad quality. and that’s a good thing, seeing how it opens up possibilities.
Thank you kazakore!
I’m new to this and i have a couple more questions, where do i submit the file, and in which format?
It would be easy to cheat if submitting an mp3, so i guess you want a renoise file, but could you explain how/where to submit?
Nice to see a new face here!
Well, you upload your entry to some webspace (anonymous, no soundcloud) and PM the link to kazakore. (Make sure you delete personal meta info from MP3s and comments from XRNSs). Happy tracking!
Sorry my fault, I forgot to copy the Submission part of the rules.
Submissions have to be my Private Message to myself.
Any format is acceptable, preferable is a 320kbs mp3 or similar plus the .xrns after removing all unused samples, but as long as I either have the audio in some format (although I’ll usually compress a wav to at least flac to save some pack space when uploading) or the project file it will be accepted. This also allows Demo users to enter, who can’t render their output, and in this case I will render, convert to 320kbs mp3 for adding to the pack unless specifically requested otherwise.
it’s all done for fun, sorry if it’s a bit slack on the organisational front at times
as long as you do your work inside of Renoise using all of the possibilities Renoise natively has, and using only the prescribed samples, you are fine. so, Renoise allows you to loop a microsample of an Electrica Dharma song, go and loop it! Renoise also allows you to bitcrush and distort the hell out of whatever sample you have, maybe leaving you with nothing more than a click, which you can use for a hat, and that’s fine too.
OK, i’m quite familiar with most of the features in Renoise, so this opens up some possibilities.
Basically this means i could draw my own samples, not that i’m going to do that, but it’s a feature in Renoise.
I was just afraid i disqualified if i made something that doesn’t resemble Companyia Elèctrica Dharma at all.
i’ll just come out and say that i have decided not to compete this round (i know, i know, i didn’t last time either!). not because i dislike the challenge, but frankly because times are quite busy, and i feel like making something ‘of my own’ this weekend (i only got the weekends for music), so no mandatory samples or whatnot. sorry!
Oh my! I think I’m taking the DDRC to a new all time quality low this time!
Really folks, it’s so damn stupid what I have here right now, it hurts. I recommend a lot of vodka with it. Yeah, that’s it: make your girlfriend (boyfriend) visit her sister, get seriously pissed, crank up the volume, and that song is fantastic! DHARMA Suffpunk pogo!!!
I hope this will never be associated with me in the future… But that’s what project names and monickers are made for, right?!
