Flip Out : Sample Challenge

Join us for this terms sample challenge, hosted by John Davies and Michael Denny.


We’ll give you the sample and you’ll have just over an hour to ‘flip’ it (think Andrew Huang’s 4 Producers 1 Sample meets Fact Magazine’s Against The Clock).

Chop, splice, granulate, loop, reverse, shift, trigger, mangle and process the sample however you want (even build a sampler-instrument). Build a beat, add any instruments, voices or sounds of your choosing - any genre, any style, no limitations! *


We’ll release a download link to the short audio sample at 8pm (London time). You’ll then have until 9pm to use it as the basis for a brand new track idea.

You’ll upload a 16-bar bounce of wherever you’ve managed to get to then we’ll have a quick listen to what y’all manage to come up with!

Sensei Challenge:

More experienced producers wanting a bit of an advanced workout can elect to take the SENSEI CHALLENGE - build a track idea using only the sample - (all elements in the track must be created from the sample - using audio processing and/or sample-based synthesis - no other instruments, voices or external samples allowed, yikes!)
