Stance Rethink has DSF60 launching on the 27th of November, then that’ll be it for a month or two. Going to take a break from hosting comps over December and January.

I’m gunna be putting together the pack soon. I might try to keep it kinda loose on the theme since I feel like the last one was a bit tight on the style we were making. I’m open to input though!

Feel free to use this thread if you like for starters… Speaking from experience I think there’s a balance in how big/focused the comp is.

Too many samples usually means more entries, more variety of tunes but less of a cohesive vibe to the whole. Super minimal ones are often more fun for experienced producers (and produce cohesive sets overall), but are also prohibitive to noobs.

As far as motifs it seems that themed comps like Unburied are their own thing apart from the numbered comps, who derive their character from the sample selection. I don’t think that’s written in stone tho. :man_shrugging:t2:

Throw some oddball shit at us: we can take it. :smirk_cat:

Second all of this.
Just get a good range of samples and it’ll be fine.

The numbered comps curated by forum heads are wide open for whatever the hoster wants to do. Some have themes, some don’t, some have huge packs, some are more selective. Easy come easy go.

The off number comps that I run tend to be more niche and focussed (burial, mutant dancehall).

End of the day it’s all for fun and learning. No pressure. Just vibes.

Somebody (not me) should run mini-comps in the green gaps on the calendar. 24/7/365 comps. Compstep Forum.

I’ve updated the schedule (again) as I’m shortening the comps by 1 week, so they will run for 4 weeks not 5. I think 5 is too long, and the comp loses focus and momentum. It also means I can squeeze another comp in to the year :gunfinger:

How do most of you guys listen to these tunes?

  • In a car
  • With headphones
  • Crappy speakers/phone
  • Sound system (home monitors or w/e)

I’ve updated the schedule again, got a bunch of IRL shit going on and time and energry is depleted (buying and selling houses, new dayjob etc and so on), therefore I have scaled back the comps a bit. But Post-September we should be back to usual scheduling.
