  • One Sample Dare #31

    Hi there. Here's the sample for AO One Sample Dare #31
    A school orchestra (almost) ready for tuning up. It's a bit rough on the edges (mediocre quality and some microphone noises) but don't let that spoil the fun.
    I'm already looking forward for the results. Good luck you all!

    https://soundcloud.com/boqtestaccount/sample-for-ao-osd-31-tuning-up

    The idea of the contest is to create ambient track using only one sample.

    2. You can use as many copies of original sample as you want, each processed with respect to Rule 1.

    3. Time for submissions is 16 days, counted to midnight, UTC, of 16th day.

    4. Submissions should be uploaded to place available for all AO members. Links should be posted in thread dedicated to given round. Please, do not use hosting with countdown, CAPTCHA and other obstacles.

    5. Sample is provided under CC0 (public domain) license.

    6. Winner of contest is chosen by votes of AO members.

    7. Winner of contest chooses sample for next contest.

        Wow this is a hard one haha but i see LOTS of potential for some very cool tracks. Im gonna download it and give it a shot. Youll know whether t worked or not if I post it.... haha

        Yep here you go...

        didnt take long, but i ran out of ideas :(

        -----
        forgot to mention what i did :/
        basically the begining is the entire clip with reverb thrown on it, slowed down, reversed, reverb thrown on it again, slowed down slightly more. some gate EQng and normalizing before mixing.

        Through the next several minute of the song i sampled the end part with the piano and some otther intstrument playing and basically just stretched the shit out of it, sped it up some, then shorted it speeding up the tempo, then some gate Eqing etc...be4 mixing.

        The other part of that part of the song where its panning/ tremelo effect kinds thing. I sampled the part where the teacher is telling the kids its time to tune. basically stretched it out also. That was about it since it started really small. But i threw a 'backing auto-pan' on that track, repeated it a couple of times and did the fade in/fade out then mixed it in.

        The very end of the song, I sampled the begihing of the sample where the drums are being played. I basically made a beat out of it. I shortned the sampled and repeated it until i could get a some-what on time beat from that single part. I slowed it down and added reverb to it.(i may have done that process reversed though. Maybe adding the reverb before i slowed it down...cant remember) But then i threw a crackle effect and vinyl record crackle effect on it and mixed it into the end of the song.
        Hopefully that works :S

                  Is that a fact? If so that's another ambiguity in the rules: "Note: votes for participants submitting more than one track are not added."
                  That could mean two things:

                  1. submitting more than one track will give you no votes whatsoever (that's how I read it because it says "votes for participants [...] are not added").
                  2. only votes for one track are added. But which track? And: is the poll counting mechanism really that smart?

                      Into The Floyd

                      https://soundcloud.com/ahornberg/into-the-floyd


                      so here is mine ... I loaded the sample into the sampler in Bitwig and played around on my keyboard.
                      Then I added lots of delays, some reverb, filters and so on ... all modulated by lots of LFOs.

                      At the end I wanted some kind of melodic element. So I cut out a small piece from 00:15.750 to 00:15.900
                      and looped it in Bitwig's sampler. The melody I played is inspired by a famous guitar-solo ...

                      All is done and mixed in Bitwig. The only additional FX I used was Verberate.
                      So enjoy!

                        2. only votes for one track are added. But which track? And: is the poll counting mechanism really that smart?

                        I can't find an example of it but sure we discussed multiple entries at some point...

                        But they are allowed.

                        You vote for the track you like, not the artists. So if you, say, submitted two tracks and got three and two votes but someone elses track got four votes, you wouldn't win. They got more for an individual track.

                        I amended the rules a bit for the Image... dare:

                        Vote for the track you think is best.

                        You can vote for more than one track but note that votes for participants submitting more than one track are not added. Winner will be the participant with the single track with most votes.

                        Maybe a little clearer? Or is the 'single track' bit still ambiguous?
