Hello! You may know I like to do MIDI battles (and also an album on my other bandcamp)
where I let an RNG pick the sounds everyone has to use, but I (and apparently others in the chat) thought it'd be fun to let BotBrs pick them too for a weekly battle!
Currently thinking Tuesday or Wednesday, as I think those are my consistent days off, until I run out of lists or boonloss occurs. Thinking 12pm EDT or 7pm EDT, but please weigh in on the day and time if this sounds fun to you:
Take a look at the general midi instrument list
Pick FOUR SOUNDS (no GS extension) that you want to write with.
Anything goes! (do not write the same sound multiple times)
Comment them (or DM me them on Discord) along with their respective patch numbers. If you know them by their more common names you can use those of course.
Every week, I will select from the list and host a battle where everyone can ONLY use those sounds (+ drums of the composer's choice if wanted) and ALL sounds must be used.
There may be other rules, you'll just have to open the bitpack and see.
Hopefully, making a schedule for it will allow people who aren't always around for MIDI to participate, plus four sounds isn't too daunting right?! Also if you just like to vote or listen to midi music, you can make an instrument list for everyone else!
Yes, the thread title is a reference to this series gone but not forgotten.
