LCHP#1: The beginning - open deadline

Lines Community HipHop Project #1

Edging the poll in the interest thread was having creative freedom for this project.

If you wish to contribute to this please DM a link to a wav of your song. the deadline is open due to recent events and stresses.

As with the LCRPs please document your process and share in the thread below. (I am really curious as to how people use their modular to make hiphop!)

Please keep tracks/stems if possible for future remix food.

Can I play if I don’t have one?

Of course! I don’t use modular either. I’ll be using the task to start learning to use sample chopping on my force.

i guess it’s my fault for missing the poll (thought i was watching the thread :unamused:)…w/o a shared theme or shared samples it seems like the community aspect is kinda missing

but we’ll see how things go

i’m still super excited cause this gives a chance to represent our diverse range of styles/interests with no restriction

thanks for takin the lead @steveoath

My thoughts on that are similar. I do, however, have a something that approaches a plan.

I think if would be really cool if each track was remixed/reworked in a future LCHP if everyone is cool with that. Could even open up collaboration if folk are willing to share stems.

I think that this being Lines (with certain niches of musical approaches) and the concept of it being HipHop -that this is enough of a conceptual framework. If i were to want to add anything it would be some raw electronics. I have started sampling my olegtron for beats and bass. Chat about process and an idea of future remixes a good idea too. id be happy to contribute to an optional sample bank if people wanted one.

with that in mind i’ll try to minimize the destructive edits i usually lean toward :slightly_smiling_face:

First track has been submitted!!! Gold :star2: has been duly issued haha.

How’s everyone getting on? I’m about halfway through.

I got about 3/4 of something I like — put together in headphones. When i played it through a low end speaker it sounded pretty ugly.

Normally i don’t have too much trouble with that, but its especially bad this time… i think i have to try and fix it, or scrap it. :space_invader:

Im finding that long takes are out and its all going to be samples laid out on the grid…not my usual way of working at all.

How’s everyone doing? Is the end of Feb deadline to soon, no harm in extensions if it would mean more tracks :smiley:

Definitely still in but might struggle with the deadline as I totally underestimated how much time I’d pour into my masters studies

No probs.

Is a month extension ok with people?

I’m in the middle of moving so an extension would be great.

Still interested and an extension sounds great! I should have some free time early in March. Composing something worthwhile is hard with young kids around, let alone recording vocals. They are going to be visiting their grandparents early in March and wife will be out for a day or two on a work thing, so I should have time then.

In my house we call that a Planetary Alignment!

How’s everything going? I’m just about finished! And have managed to fix my pc woes just in time to mix my track properly :smile:

I am echoing sentiments from the equinox thread//// trios : lcrp.2020.equinox.1 //// and the deadline is open. I hope to receive more songs when people feel more comfortable making music.

Stay safe.

I think I am almost there…

Technical question: do you want mastered tracks or mixes suitable for an overall mastering?

Good Q! I do not have the expertise to master so if you’re happy doing your own that would be great. I’d feel terrible if I wrecked someone’s work!
