    @NONONSENSEBEATS That is one smooth flip, and I dig the horns on this one. Can't wait to hear the final draft. Drums are good. Bass is good also...

    @crosstevsky Your flip reminds me of a video game level. I love the funkiness of it and I like how you flip it. I wasn't expecting to hear a flip like that. That's pretty ill...


    I decided to focus more on the vocals side of the sample this time...

    Thanks for feedback @Klypse Video game in a good way I hope :) I like that you decided to focus on the vocals, they sound nice...I never get to that section of a song, I always cut the first couple of bars, whatever is on there...Drums and bass sound like they need work, some kind of development.

    Thought I'd give this one a go. Havent made a beat in about 5 years (even then I wasnt good) and Over the last month just getting back in to things. From learning maschine and everything I've forgotten this is basically the first thing I've exported. I know the mix is probablky awful, trying to do everything inside maschine and no speakers. Any feedback is appreciated.

    @NONONSENSEBEATS Like how chill this one is mate.

    @crosstevsky Wasnt expecting that from this sample! I like the way u messed with it.

    @Klypse Nice one mate, I was trying to mess with the vocals too but couldnt really get anything I liked. Very smooth I liked how it changed up

    Thanks for the feedback. I like how you chopped this up. I thought about using vocals. There is alot of potential in the vocals on this song. So nice flip bro.

    @NONONSENSEBEATS This is Dope!!! Very smooth... Horn sounds good! All the sounds blend really well together... Nice work.

    @crosstevsky This one is funky! I though the kick might been a lil loud.. other than that everything sounds good... It does kinda remind me of a video game tho.

    @Klypse Definitely like the idea of sampling the vocals... Not really digging the drums at the beginning, but that change up is dope! Nick work with the sample.

    @Yodsanklai Very nice! Kept it simple, but this is very well put together... Great use of the sample! Haven't made a beat in 5 yrs... Could've fooled me! :up2:

    @Cayenne Always like listening to your flips! I like the chops on this one, very smooth... Nice work as always!

    A very well put together beat, has kind of deep philosophical vibe to it...with the vocals...sounds nice, maybe you can go without the background noise (vinyl crackling etc..)

    @.calm I really appreciate the feedback because I am working to improve daily. Flipping samples is a very open ended process. We use the same source and create something totally different. I enjoy the chopping process and hearing how others piece together a puzzle in a sense.

    Your usage of FX was dope for the beat you created. Keep on participating in the sample flipping challenges and you'll see some progress overtime.
