Hi all, apologies for the slightly late start, I didn’t get in until about 6am this morning after being out much of last night urban exploring an abandoned and well derelict hospital and other missions. Anyway onto this week’s competition!
Deadline for submissions is 12noon, UK time Thursday 12th April 2012
Rules: Tempo: Any Genre: Any Time Signature: Any Compulsory Sample: No sample pack. You are allowed to select three from your own sample library, each of which must be under 10 second, and use these. Cutting, chopping, slicing, layering etc all allowed. Additional Rules: Renoise only. All features, functions, DSPs etc of Renoise except for: Draw Tool in Sample Editor & Line-In Device. Rendering Selection only allowed for CPU reasons but please keep patterns used in a named section at the end of the song. Submissions: Please submit links for download to me via PM so we can keep voting closed. .XRNS file must be submitted! Preferably alongside an audio file (mp3 320kbs preferred.)
My understanding is Yes You Can. The full, initial message from Clapping Hand where he first outlines the idea of his rule.
We went with you providing the sample from your own collection, rather than 3 from a supplied pack in the end. Maybe a combined length of 10 seconds would have been better but nevermind, I don’t believe anybody is likely to abuse this just to effectively get some extra samples.
Yep you can, the idea is to start off with a limited seleciton of “raw material” and see what you can create from it. So, for instance, I wouldn’t see any problem with you copying a single cycle from a kick drum to use as a chip in a new instrument.
Realised I’m at work until 8pm this evening, then afterwards have a meeting about FrenchTek plans in a pub, so likely wont be home until pretty late. Will try and get the pack etc up when home tonight but I can’t promise it wont slip until the morning…
But hopefully that will give time to get a couple more entries in
