    The next competition will be from June 7-8th! See the information below.

    Signups


    The signups will be on June 7th at around 10am ET, and end around 8pm ET, or until we have 16 contestants (whichever comes first). Voting will be for 1 day, on June 8th, where the results will be posted the same day.

    Go here to signup (click the "signup" tab - it will open up on the signup day)

    Theme: ELECTRIC GUITAR
    • Your beat MUST have electric guitar in it!
    You can use whatever sounds you want, samples, synths, just remember to read the rules for the rest of the restrictions. What the judges will be looking for is originality, creativity, mixing skills and overall dopeness!

    Voting


    From now on, the voting will be by all members! If you are competing, you will be able to vote but not for yourself. DO NOT TRY TO CHEAT! I will be watching for cheaters. This means you cannot sign up under different names or get your friends and family to sign up either. If you are caught cheating you could be banned (depending on the mood I'm in).

    Beats

    All the beats will now be displayed in a random order and without any names. All you will see is: Beat #001, Beat #002, etc. This is so that there is no favouritism when voting.

    Sponsor


    This month, the competition will be sponsored by Greg Savage & DIY Music Biz, where the winner will get 1 on 1 consultation from industry insider Greg Savage on music licensing.

    Rules

    If you're not sure about the rules, read this thread.

    If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions about the competition, please post them in here.

    Distortion comes from clipping!!
    Best way to avoid clipping and distorted music is to do proper gain staging and make sure nothing is clipping!
    no having a distorted sound is different like electric guitars and ect! But even when mixing you beats down just make sure you doing gain staging!

    Now the proper gain staging is up to you, Usually don't go pass the 10 db mark and now lower than 20 is my sweet spot!
    Depending on what type of music I'm making. I didn't and hope you wasn't offended bruh just wanted to help and pay it forward as some one told me the same! ill have a video up soon!! keep up the good work and just avoid clipping!

    I think it's shuffled.. But I'm not sure, mine shows up in different spots sometimes depending on when I look at it.
