Sample Remix Contest: Win an Ohm Force ALL-ALL Bundle

rekkerd sample remix contest

Sample remix contests are usually quite boring. Download a sample pack, create a track with the included samples and hope the guy running the contest likes your stuff… or takes bribes.

If you’re hoping this contest will be any different, I have to disappoint you. It’s actually exactly what you just read, except:

  1. the sample remix pack includes 100+ samples (many of which were generated/processed with Ohm Force plug-ins), so there’s plenty to work with.
  2. the rekkerd.org readership picks the winner, so no point in trying to bribe me.
  3. the prize: Ohm Force ALL-ALL Bundle.

That’s right, you could win the complete collection of Ohm Force plug-ins, including Symptohm: Melohman and Ohmicide: Melohman. A value of $920 USD!

Excited? I know I would be, so go ahead and download the 54MB sample pack (84MB uncompressed) below to get started. And while you’re waiting for the download to complete, please read the contest rules below.

Sample Remix Pack 2008 Downloads: 12426 times

The sample pack contains 24-bit wav files (mono/stereo) which have been normalized to a peak of 0dB. The volume of the samples varies quite a bit, and some of them are quite raw ‘n nasty, so please be sure to protect your ears & equipment.

Sample remix contest rules

  • Only samples from the sample remix pack may be used. No other samples, generators or synths are allowed.
  • Samples may be processed/manipulated any way you like, please don’t hold back!

  • You may enter up to 2 entries.
  • Submissions must be in before the deadline of Thursday, 31 July, 2008*, after which there will be one week to vote for your top 3.
  • Every contestant will need to vote to be eligible to win (no, you may not vote for your own entry).
  • Prizes will be granted at the discretion of the rekkerd.org voting committee. There may be prizes for the runners-up.

    Hi,

    I have just started making music on my computer after a long long break (too long), so I was happy to see this, and I’ll see if I can make a submission on time (exams!).

    Would I be allowed to use the samples in the pack in other contexts aswell?

    Regards
    Anders

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Hi Anders, I’m looking forward to your entry!

    Of course you are free to use the samples any way you like (except sell them or things like that of course, just like all other samples at rekkerd.org).

  • Sushane

    Hi,
    M new 2 music….. m givin a shot 2 dis contest…. can any1 pls mention d time limit or d file size limit 4 our compositions?
    thanx in advance…

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    There’s no time/size limit for the entries, but it’s probably a good idea to keep it under 10 minutes. Encoding should be in 192kbit mp3.

  • Baz

    Hello , two questions questions :

    1/ Are extra fx processing allowed (with deep transformations such as pitch shift , spectral) ?
    2/ Are the use of samplers allowed (formant sampler , granular sampler , which may transform deeply the original sample) ?

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Hi Baz,

    The contest rules read:

    Samples may be processed/manipulated any way you like, please don’t hold back!

    So yes, please feel free to use any kind of fx processing, sampling, etc. even to a point where the samples barely resemble the originals.

    As long as you use the included samples only, so no other samples or synths.

  • ben

    Wait, deadline is the 31 of JULY, not june? This means I still have plenty of time to submit something, I already thought that I missed another contest..

    Any bad blood if I submit the stuff I make to http://5090.fawm.org/ after the contest? ;)

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Yeah, I’ve been generous with the deadline eh? Of course you can use it for 50/90!

  • ProductBE

    What about vocals? Can they be added for dramatic effect – if not is it ok to Vocoder the samples with vocals as it states – “Samples may be processed/manipulated any way you like, please don’t hold back!”

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Productbe, vocals would be in the “no other samples, generators or synths are allowed” category, even if you don’t sample them ^_^

    Using a vocoder would be OK, as long as it’s applied to samples in the supplied sample pack.

    I realize this is a bit tricky since some type of processing could be seen as sound generation as well… As long as the remix samples are the starting point you should be fine.

    Oooh a remix contest! Sweet. Haven’t done one of these in a while. Should be fun :)

  • Baz

    Hi,i have another stupid question…when i’ve heard the sound “bass_04.wav” I clearly have a kind of psychic reaction :

    1/I’ve eard this before
    2/It’s the Arturia minimoog
    3/It ‘s the preset called ‘K.U_3osc’ from the bass bank.

    SO…I was already knowing I have some very good ears but…

    Can I use this preset now i’ve discovered it ?
    Can the others synths sound be used as “wavetables” to make some sampler programs ?

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Hi Baz, I can assure you that this particular sample is not from Arturia’s minimoog synth, as I don’t have that plug-in (I would have to check but I probably made that sample with MiniMogueVA.

    Anyway, even if this sample was from Arturia’s synth I wouldn’t want you to be using that synth instead of the sample. The whole point of this contest is to use the samples to do your track. So please don’t use any instrument plug-ins unless it uses the samples as sound sources (i.e. samplers).

  • Pingback: Ohm Force plug-ins now available in RTAS for PC

  • Baz

    Ok , but it’s crazy…the preset I was talinkg about and your sound are extremely similar.
    Maybe the minimogueVA presets are also copying the arturia presets !? (in addition to the initial gui , which was changed due to a Arturia query )

  • Mike

    hi, i was wondering if we are allowed to include our tags in our submissons. thanks.

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Hi Mike, what kind of tags do you mean? Mp3 tags would be no problem.

  • Mike

    if youd like an example you could check out my http://www.myspace.com/mikeduganonmyspace.

    thanks.

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Slight change in the rules: mp3s need to have a minimum bitrate of 192kbit.

    If you’ve already submitted your track and would like to enter a version with a higher bitrate you are free to do so.

    One more day, eh? Ronnie, is there a set time they have to be in by?

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Since I’m on CET and quite a few people might still be on July 31st when I’m already sleeping my way into August, I will just check for the last batch of entries in the morning on August 1st CET.

    I’ll then prepare a download package with all the tracks and email/post to let everyone know how to vote. Voting will probably start on Saturday.

  • reason lahalla

    Sweet deal, I’ll be able to turn my entry in after all :) Thanks Ronnie,

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Some people have emailed me about the deadline, and I must admit I didn’t really write about this as clear as I could when I said:

    Submissions must be in before the deadline of Thursday, 31 July, 2008, after which there will be one week to vote for your top 3.

    To clarify, make sure to submit your entry before the end of today, July 31. I’m on CET timezone, but if you submit at 11.55pm your local time that’s fine with me too.

  • shallan

  • reason lahalla

    Did you get mine Ronnie?

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Hi Reason, I did get yours. I still have to add about another 10 tracks to the list.

    I’ll update this page in a few hours and get the voting started.

  • reason lahalla

    Wasn’t sure, as the contact form kinda burped in process :)

  • http://rekkerd.org ronnie

    Alright, all entries are now posted.

  • reason lahalla

    You know, with so much great talent as shown here, it’s a wonder how so much junk gets released on these huge labels. People talk about music being blah today, but they don’t readily get to hear some of this great work.

    SHALLAN – I don’t have a soundclick website (that I remember …heh), so I guess you’ll have to contact that other Audiopath about it…(if you haven’t already)…

    I’ve just been on vacation for 10 days and I see the number of tracks has multiplied quite I bit, so I’d better get listening here….
