PO Battle Nr.1 - Electric Dialogue


#1

Pick two or more Pocket Operators of your choice and let them enter a dialogue. Give them a voice. Let them discuss, cry or laugh.

Rules:

  • use at least two Pocket Operators
  • no mixing or editing in DAW
  • no use of any other gear
  • the final track should be uploaded at soundcloud and posted in this thread
  • the theme for the next battle is chosen by the winner.

As the Deadline I would suggest, Eastern the 28th of March.

I hope everyone is alright with this battle theme.

Woohoo, PO battle!


#3

Yay, I like the dialogue theme. =)


#4

Glad I picked up the robot! Now I have 2! Game on.


#5

Is OP-1 OK as a 4-track recorder if I record straight without editing nor performing ?



#6

Op1 has some gain ID say. But is how I plan to record my PO battle submission. Just no eq; effects; tape tricks. I’ll prolly just record straight to album.


#7

Hey @masterofstuff124, what do you mean gain ID” ?

Recording straight to album is a very good idea !

Do you guys know if one can record in stereo in such manner ?
I wanted to do some kind of hard panning like previous OP-1 battle ^^
OK, I’ll leave work at once and go test it !!!
:smiley:

#8

Gain, I would say. Contractions and punctuation. Not my strong suit.


#9

this is awesome! now i need a second PO…


#10

nice! Gonna give this a shot, perhaps even make a video.


#11

Could a moderator make this a sticky post/announcement?


#12

Done!


#13

Does anyone like the idea of the output of this battle being curated into a Bandcamp album? (see https://www.operator-1.com/index.php?p=/discussion/1849/how-do-you-get-your-music-out-there#latest for more details). As organiser @flom what do you reckon?


#14

Yeah, coll idea :slight_smile:

Especially if @HisMostDarxxxellent is willing to show his mastering skills ^^

#15

Well, I love the idea ! Now I really need a PO…


#16

Ok so I have 2 questions cause I am stoopid… No daw how do we get it to sound cloud?

And can we use two of the same PO device?


#17

No mixing and editing in DAW. Recording and saving to harddisk should be fine.


#18
Well, I love the idea ! Now I really need a PO...

I’ve been looking at them too, three just popped up in a local store but I can’t bring my self to reach into my wallet; I can’t stop loving the flow that I’m rinsing right now.

Yeah, coll idea :)
Especially if @HisMostDarxxxellent is willing to show his mastering skills ^^

I’m happy and willing to try my best with my current abilities for both the mastering and mixing and hopefully bring about a cohesive sound and texture for you guys. If I can make your productions shine even just a little bit more than that would be a dream come true!

There is still no say of how this will be recorded :slight_smile: I would need each individual stem.


#19

I thought no mixing/mastering?


#20
I thought no mixing/mastering?

Maybe and maybe not. The idea is that the only mixing and/or mastering will be done by me post-battle :wink: so…

  1. You guys will produce your beats and submit them to this battle.

  2. A winner is announced.

Normally, that’s it. Finished. Caput. Done and dusted.

However, there’s a twist to the normal outcome in addition we collectively created an idea inspired from a thread. Here’s the rub;

  1. Stems sent to me for mixing and/or mastering.

  2. Artwork and bandcamp page by @wolflegjon

  3. Other suggestions welcome :slight_smile:

Here is the thread that inspired this idea https://www.operator-1.com/index.php?p=/discussion/1849/how-do-you-get-your-music-out-there#latest

Get me?
