    Things I finally learned this battle:

    • turning up the buffer to 1024 eliminates the crackles
    • trimming the pads that use a small bit of a long sample or turning disk streaming on can greatly reduce RAM usage

    damn I wish I could hit that many tracks without causing issues, but, its all samples or are there AU's as well?

  • @nkdVKNG all samples from the battle packs! but I did have a lot of AU fx running, too. 2015 iPad Pro 12.9

    Nice sparse-ness to this one, would be good to mix in a dj set, and I appreciate the visuals, nice addition cheers

    Uhg, weeklybeats UX is crap... there IS a play button hidden on the page... lets see do bandcamp embeds work here?

    Number 2
    https://starpause.bandcamp.com/track/interactive-submission

    Edit: Nope!

  • So these submissions are really great, and so are the two bonus tracks you shared, @starpause, but how's about you throw up a voting thread? ;)

  • edited April 2018

    That was 100 bpm, not 140 ha!

  • edited April 2018

    Better late than never. LOL...

  • This needs a vote thread.

    We were waiting for @starpause (as host) to manage the vote thread... but if he hasn't done it in the next few hours I'll make one instead.

  • Got the melody from @tk32's track stuck in my head today. Well done =)

  • edited April 2018

    Yeah thanks, but my track badly needs re-mixing and remastering..

    I did it all on headphones (including an iOS master in final touch) and only realised afterwards how harsh and tinny and lacking bass it sounds.

    At least the melody sticks ;)

  • A word of warning..

    Beware trying to do mid/side EQ mastering on headphones (especially if you're an amateur).

    It can really fuck your track up :)

  • @DeanDaughters Thanks! All of the entries are great!

  • edited April 2018

    Im going to just put this out there, anybody else think @tk32 should just organise each months comp ?
    Just have a thread where people can post ideas for future comps.

  • Happy to do the honours and manage the battle admin if everyone is OK with @5pinlink's suggestion.

    Speaking of suggestions, Are there any good ideas for Battle #8?

    I’m also fine with that. It could be a group effort, too, in the unlikely event that @tk32 is unable to visit the forum on a daily basis. =p or at least just some communication on who is gonna do what.

    Winner should always get first choice at what next comp should be i reckon ?

  • edited April 2018

    Lets gather a list of cool ideas from across all users.. then the winner has something to pick from (or just pick their own)

    It might even draw more entrants? (wishful thinking)

  • Yeah im thinking it might get a few more casual entries, you never know.

    Start a new thread for competition ideas, then we can keep the first post updated with a list of ideas, so the thread doesnt need to be fully read.
