Sample Remix Contest: Win Prime Loops samples
Anyone up for another sample remix contest? This time we have an exclusive competition in association with Prime Loops.
Prime Loops has provided a sample remix pack including various samples from their recent releases. Unlike last time, you’ll only get a few samples to play with. And because you get less to work with, I’ve decided you can also use whatever else you want to create your entry so you can really do your own thing here.
You have until October 31st, 2008 (11.59pm, your local time) to create a song for this contest.
Sample remix contest rules
- Create a track using at least one of the samples supplied in the remix pack. You can remix/process the sample(s) any way you want. The entry should be under 5 minutes and be submitted as an mp3 (192kbit minimum).
- Upload the track and let me know where I can find it (i.e. Rapidshare, Megaupload). You can also email me the mp3 file directly.
- Voting will commence on November 1st and will last for 1 week. Voting will be open to contest participants only and you need to vote to be eligible to win any prize (details will follow later).
Note: For this contest you may also use any host, instrument, effect or sample for your entry (just keep it legit so don’t use pirated software or anything like that).

1st place gets 3 points, 2nd gets 2 points and 3rd place gets 1 point. Whoever has the most points in the end wins.
Voting ends on Sunday, November 8, 11.59:59pm CET. You can only vote ONCE, and you NEED to vote in order to be eligible to win.
Good luck everyone!
