    I don't understand why bass synth isn't allowed, but let's go!

    I’m assuming anything Massive is allowed and not just the 8 presets included with the sample pack ?

    How frustrating. Have been checking old thread to see if competition had started every day, thought that I got some sort of notification in past only to find out today that it started Monday (alright I'm being a bit melodramatic). Then I rush home excited, bolt down a bowl of cereal and jump up to my loft eagerly anticipating checking out the sounds only to find the link appears to be down. Sure it won't take long to remedy. Looking forward to starting though, have barely touched Maschine since I bought Ableton in January but I'm hoping some of the stuff I've learnt will transfer and over that I will return to Maschine with a fresh pair of eyes, perhaps a better appreciation of it's strengths.

    I like having the limitations, even then I'm already thinking will I just go deep with the samples and learn as much as I can about sample manipulation or will I spend a month trying to get to grips with Massive, still a huge amount of scope. This competition is a great antidote to my gear lust, encouraging me to learn better what I've got, finding the same with the Kadenze online Ableton course, it's giving me a focus and pushing my learning forward. Anyway will have to get back to that tonight if the samples don't come online in next half hour, itching to get started. Wishing you all an enjoyable beat battle, plenty learning and bags of fun.

    You can slice and chop the samples included in the sample pack, but the use of other samples is not allowed this month :)

    Are we allowed to modify/alter the given samples (ex: make a bass by stretching and adding effects over a kick sound)?

    Great Pack!
    Nice challenge.
    Does this exclude Audio plugin?
    Haven't used Massive in a while. This was a good learning curve on Presets.
    Thanks.
    Good luck everyone!

    I remember asking for something like this in the thread "Sample Junkies Unite" back in May of 2017.
    Looks like the day has come!
    Thanks NI. Maybe we (fellow forum members) can submit sample packs for a challenge one day!
    Off to the races we go!
    Cheerz!

    To be exact the thread was:
    Sample Junkies and Music Choppers Unite
    Happy sample chopping!


    This is so much fun
    I almost typed in all caps
    But I don't wanna do that
    it just inspired a new rap
    I know this a beat battle
    so just a bar l'll rattle
    time for me to ski-dattle
    It's that Chickenz dibble- dabble
    no more scribble- scrabble
    ain't got time to haggle
    bangin da beatz on these pads
    got me happy and glad
    won't be angry or sad
    won't feel bitter or bad
    if my beat don't win
    It's kool just to be in
    FACTZ!
    Good luck everyone!

    Can we have multiple submissions or are they limited?

    No. Only one submission per user.

    The rules apply to everything in the project.

    Yes, just make sure the original sample sound can be verified to be part of the sample pack.
