The Battle Host must provide a sample set to be used for the battle. These samples are the only sound sources allowed, unless the Additional Rules for the battle state otherwise. The samples can be anything that the Battle Host has the right to distribute for non-commercial use.
The Battle Host must create three Additional Rules. These can allow or require additional sound sources, or impose any kind of new requirements.
Anyone can enter the Battle by posting a link to their entry in the Battle thread. Unless the Additional Rules state otherwise, any processing is allowed and the source samples need not be recognizable. The Host may disqualify any entry that does not meet either the general rules or the additional ones.
Once the submission deadline is reached, the winner is elected by posting votes in the same thread. Anyone is welcome to vote whether they participated or not. In case of a draw, the Host designates the winner between the submissions tied for first place.
Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting on a Friday. Submissions close and votes open at 23:59 on the 11th day (tuesday). Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day (thursday). The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (friday) to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.
1. no kick!! Ok, so there's a break beat in there with a kick. You can use that but pitch it up or run a highpass filter on it or something. Basically don't make it a thumpy low endy synthy percussive sound.
2. in fact, only two drum sounds for every two measures. lol. And this includes individual hits(slices) from the break beat.
EDIT: want to clarify. You can use the same drum sounds as many times as you want within those two measures, and they can have modulation.
3. 90 bpm or slower
lets do this.

Thought Id have a go at some ambient soundscaping. May need to redo the midrange...no headroom
Gave me a chance to experiment with The Mangel, loaded the vocals into omnisphere and beta test the latest excalibur and some nice reverbs.. First time on this genre so interested in anyones views...regardless of the battle
