Would You Participate?

Ok, so I just finished running a thread idea by jarrydn that I had a while back and would love to try... so now I'm gonna get your guys opinions on it to see if there's enough interest for it to be worth posting.

So, the general idea is based around "Betcha Can't Play This" (Example) with a few tweaks.

Basically, someone would post up a riff (Not a whole song, a short riff, length is undecided so far) in an MP3 playing the riff fast, then slow (50% or slower), then someone else would come along, and record their attempt, then in the same MP3 that they have their attempt in, include their own "Betcha Can't Play This" riff. You would not be allowed to post your own riff unless you attempted someone elses.

Here's where things change:
1: I know guitarists aren't exactly rampant on the site, so I'm debating it being open to any instrument that you physically play, including vocals, and even DJ Scratching... Keep in mind, clicking in notes in a DAW does not count as playing.

2: Their will be a maximum length (At the moment, I'm thinking around 20 seconds).

3: I may ask people to upload the files to another site (Such as Mediafire or Dropbox for example) to avoid the portal being filled up with tiny MP3s.

4: Submissions can be single instrument only, and must be done in a single take, no editing, and should be light on effects.

5: And you can choose to upload tabs/sheet/midi of your "Betcha Can't Play This" riff along with the MP3 to help people attempt it... If you choose not to do this, the slow version should be slow enough that people can make out each note.

I haven't gone over the idea with a fine tooth comb just yet, because at this stage it's just an idea for something fun we can do with the entire community while helping people get better at their chosen instrument and hopefully strengthening social bonds within the audio community.
The charm is in the fact that you don't have to spend hours writing/recording to participate, as it will be single instrument and a very short time limit, and focused entirely on skill on an instrument. Stuff doesn't have to be overly complicated, it can just be fun to play, and should show what you're capable of.

So, opinions? Would you participate in something like this?

For elctronic artists it could be more about emulating the sound and less about the notes


Very Nice.

That's a good point... I'll take that into consideration when I get around to working on the thread.

Nice to know there's interest, I'm looking forward to giving this idea a go. Hopefully I'll be able to get a draft of the thread done shortly after the Redesign goes live, then we can get the ball rolling, all while being in awe of the new site.

I'll definitely be doing it, maybe within the next week or so. I wanna spend a fair amount of time on the opening post so that it's as clear cut as possible so it doesn't end up being a giant clusterfuck of people just submitting things like some sort of ad thread.

Once I do up a draft, I'll probably send it out to a couple people to look it over and proof read and point out anything that needs changing, then post it up shortly after that.

Redesign

Oh damn, only 24 hours to go. I am freaking excited, yet there's some sadness in me. I've been here since 2008 and this design was already around, and now, saying goodbye and moving on is kind of odd.

Yeah, I know, whining about a redesign is dumb, but I will miss this old one.

Redesign

I'm mostly curious whether they'll have taken advantage of all the fancy new HTML5 stuff that's been introduced to the web since the last redesign. Should be interesting.

It'll probably be a pretty shocking change, but I'm sure we'll all get over it in some time.

I hear the Audio portal is getting tits, by rating 5 on every song you have a chance of perky tits popping up where the visualizer is located

I heard that the Audio Portal is getting replaced by the Audio Portlulz, where you can only upload recordings of yourself laughing like a maniac.

Hi, I haven't really been keeping up with the redesign news (I actually had no idea about it until yesterday :o yeah I'm not too frequent on NG anymore...), but what's changing to the audio portal? I have some musics I've made now but I never wanted to submit to NG (not because of the free downloads, I'm cool with that) because we can't control the ID3 tagging of the song once it's downloaded. What's with that? I don't want something I created to be tagged with my NG username and with (ID:69696969) attached to each song.

So, just wondering, that was always a pet peeve of mine about the Audio Portal

Trying to discuss drugs intelligently

So I just laid out a huge description of drugs and their relation to culture and how and why people strive to mental intoxication and how enriching it can be. To which the responses were "I like whiskey!" and "OMG drunk people suck."

Gotta love people's stupidity.
