MPC Forums Beat Battle #321 – How You Flop

First, shout out to MPC Forums, and check out the Beat Battle #321 thread if you want to see what others are up to at I guess this track was about 90 minutes to put together? A lot of the time was spent chopping, and then finding different lines. I gave a stab atContinue reading “MPC Forums Beat Battle #321 – How You Flop”

MPCBB309 – Say It

Yeah, an MPC Forums Beat Battle… I honed in on a section that I thought would loop well enough, chopped it up, and then focussed on the chops that sounded good enough. This track turned into three different sections that I just used song mode to string together. Was a fun track to flip, evenContinue reading “MPCBB309 – Say It”

MPCBB303 – Dream in a Music Box

Submission for MPC Beat Battle 303 over at MPC Forums. You still have time to submit a track 😀 The picture comes courtesy of a trip I took with my family and in-laws to a butterfly garden when the kids were just two or three. The girls really loved seeing all the insects in theirContinue reading “MPCBB303 – Dream in a Music Box”

MPCBB302 – Take It Easy On You

Just through this track together in an hour for the MPC Beat Battle 302. Just about to go to bed… not sure I could’ve cut this more to the wire… but… well… I got close lol! Just drums from outside… everything else was sampled from the track with an application of vigorous effects and automationContinue reading “MPCBB302 – Take It Easy On You”

MPCBB #299 – Aeon’s Regret

Dropping off a track for MPC Forums Beat Battle #299 I rolled this track together in what… less than an hour I think? I just did lazy/manual chops by playing the track and tapping out the pads… I know it’s a bit sloppy, but honestly it sounded fine, and I wasn’t looking to make aContinue reading “MPCBB #299 – Aeon’s Regret”

MPCBB 268 – Relaxing Action

There weren’t any other entries, so I figured what the heck and put together a track. The sample itself was pretty basic, so I figured I would work on chopping it up and just finding a drum kit to play to it. I wanted to focus as much as possible on keeping the original audioContinue reading “MPCBB 268 – Relaxing Action”

Track – MPCBB289 – Long Way to Go

A bit of a scramble this one… but had fun listening to the song and picking out the parts I liked. All done on the MPC Live mk2… only software intervention was to load Fission so I could just cut the track to length and do a quick fade out. I promise 😀 This timeContinue reading “Track – MPCBB289 – Long Way to Go”

Track – MPCBB 285 – Hard Found Peace

Alrighty then! So for this track, I started it and finished it in about 30 minutes. I just didn’t have much time to hit the deadline yesterday… and figured I’d just cut to the chase for the throw down. To pull this together I just grabbed a four bar section that I liked the soundContinue reading “Track – MPCBB 285 – Hard Found Peace”
