Four Measures Of Fury March Madness!!!

by Chris Randall
 

Sorry this is so late. I meant to do it last night, but I was put down for the count by a monster toothache that has left me all but unable to function. However, pharmacutical products have been liberally applied, and I can at least type now.


Anyways, now that you guys know how this works, we're gonna get a little tricky. This month is definitely tougher, not your average break. I've chosen a loop made from a freestyle track by Polish beatboxer Arczi. I should note here that, like you, I was unaware that all the best beatboxers come from Poland. I've since been corrected. It's interesting how utterly lacking in soul German hip-hop performers of any stripe are, while their next-door neighbors are actually quite good. I suppose there's a certain line of logic to that.


So, without further drug-induced rambling, here is the loop. Four measures, of course. The tempo is 95 bpm. For those that weren't around for the last FMOF, here are the rules:


1. When you submit a loop, it _must_ be the original tempo or a derivation thereof (e.g. half-time, double-time, etc.), and exactly the same length in time as the original loop. (i.e. if you go double time, you actually have to submit 8 measures.)


2. Any and all chopping, slicing, dicing, effects, resynthesis, etc. are allowed. However, you may not use anything but the provided source material. No additional synths or samples other than what is provided.


3. Either email me your submission, or post a link to it in this thread or later FMOF threads. If you choose to email your submission, please zip it, as that makes my life easier. If you have a web page you'd like a link to, provide that with your submission as well.


4. All submissions must be received by midnight Friday next. I will then assemble all the submissions in the order they are received, and put the resulting file up as an MP3.


So, there you have it. The bass sounds are in B and C#, if you need to know that for some reason. Get to choppin', and may the best reconstruction emerge victorious!

Ok here's mine.
I didn't spot an 'uncompressed only' format restriction on this, so I've been bad and put it up as an Mp3(320kbps).
That should make you cringe a bit when you normalize them all. Bwaah ha har, etc.

Heh. Doesn't matter to me. As long as Nuendo can read it, I'll take it.

Just no fucking OGG files.
