Éclat: Part 59

Avatar eclatcrew | January 12, 2021

Welcome back to Éclat Crew, and our first workshop of 2021!

While we have no idea what 2021 will hold, at least we can be sure that we're going to make some BANGING tunes together.

Did you know that lots of creators upload Free Sample Packs that they've created to Bandcamp?

Searching Bandcamp with the tag 'Free Sample Pack' led me to Technoir and their sample pack 'Never SAMPLE The Algorithm', a sample pack made up of sounds from their 2020 album 'Never Trust The Algorithm'. We're going to be using this sample pack for today's challenge.

Download 'Never SAMPLE The Algorithm' for tonight's challenge HERE for free!
(Simply enter '0€' in the 'Name Your Price' field'. You can choose to download the samples in MP3, WAV, or many other formats. If you have trouble downloading from Bandcamp, please let me know and I'll send you the files directly.)

Today's rules: ALL sounds that you use to make your track MUST come from this sample pack EXCEPT drums! (ie: you can use your own drums, but all your bass / chords / synths / etc must come from this sample pack.

In the interests of the health and safety of all our producers, we are moving our meet-ups exclusively online until further notice.

The event will run like this:

18:00: Join us on a Zoom call to meet, learn about the night’s challenge, and to meet Sanni and hear about her musical journey, and the samples that she’s provided us with. (Please note this session requires prior signup at our Google Form.)
18:30 - 20:30: Making Time! Everyone has two hours to make a track of up to 2 minutes long. The Zoom call will be kept open throughout, so you can reach out for help and assistance; we’ll be using the breakout rooms feature so that we can help you with your software remotely, if you have questions.
20:30: Time to send us your track! Email your track to eclatcrewberlin [at] gmail [dot] com so that I can collect all the tracks in one place
21:00: Listening time! Everyone rejoins the Zoom call, we reconnect and chat about the samples, and listen to the things we made.

If you would like to join us in the online meetup, please email us at eclatcrewberlin [at] gmail [dot] com to receive the link to the Zoom call. If you have any trouble joining us on Zoom, please email us at the address above and we'll do our best to help you!
