Wave Alchemy launches Producer Contest 2014

Wave Alchemy has announced that its Producer Contest 2014 has launched.

Wave Alchemy Producer Contest

We are extremely happy and proud to present to you Wave Alchemy’s first ever Producer Contest! We have been working together behind the scenes with a collective of the best companies in the business to bring you a contest with over £5000 ($8000) worth of prizes for the lucky winners!

The official start date for the contest is 24/10/2014 with the closing date set for 21/11/2014.

The idea is simple – we are giving away a free 1GB sample pack which you can download here (right-click save as PC or ctrl + click MAC). Once you have downloaded the pack you have until 21/11/2014 to produce the best track you can with the supplied sounds…

Entrants should ‘make good use’ of the supplied free Wave Alchemy samples, sounds and effects. We encourage entrants to be creative with the supplied free sounds; to process, re-arrange, cut and manipulate them to create an original piece of music. Along with the supplied sounds we very much encourage you to create original melodies, parts and patterns using synthesizers, drum machines, effects processors, and any of your own sounds / samples that you own a licence for. Any genre or musical style is welcome. Be creative!

Sponsored prizes include products from Native Instruments, u-he, Bitwig, Propellerhead, FabFilter, Loopmasters, Softube, Synapse Audio, AskAudio & AskVideo, Mike Monday, IK Multimedia, MusicTech, iLok, celemony, and Wave Alchemy.

LVC-Audio Giveaway – Win one of 5 effect plugins

LVC-Audio is offering rekkerd.org readers a chance to win 1 of 5 free copies of any of its paid effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

LVC-Audio ClipShifter

ClipShifter 2 is a wave-shaping audio plugin that functions like a clipping-style limiter.

It provides enough user controls to be useful in all mixing stages: from distorting basses and drums, to maximizing mix buses and warming-up overall mixes.

The sonic characteristics of the clipping distortion can be altered from hard, brickwall-style clipping, to softer saturation with compression.

LVC-Audio Transector

Transector is an aggressive transient-designing audio plugin, used to attenuate various transient qualities of an audio signal.

Use it to boost the initial attack of various instruments, such as adding more crack to a snare or kick drum. Simultaneously, you can use Transector to alter the decaying portion of audio.

This is useful in many situations, such as decreasing the decay of a vocal track, or reducing to amount of room ambiance in drum tracking.

LVC-Audio HotPhuzz

HotPhuzz is a saturation designer plugin.

It is a creative tool that specializes in the creation of distinct saturation tones. HotPhuzz uses a multiband distortion process to create vintage, modern, and unique saturation effects.

Although HotPhuzz can be pushed into over distortion, it excels at creating more moderate saturation sounds. You can call the sounds whatever terms you like, but it still sounds good.

LVC-Audio PreAMPed

PreAMPed is an audio plugin that recreates many of the qualities of analog preamplifiers.

This includes subtle EQ response curves, low- and high- frequency saturation, differences between left and right signals, crosstalk, noise, transformer/coil impulse response, and saturation and EQ changes due to gain changes.

LVC-Audio TonedPLUS

TonedPLUS is a specialized tone shaping plugin with selectable analog modeling.

Expanding on the concept of the free plugin Toned, TonedPLUS is designed primarily for use in the mastering process or on two-track audio busses.

TonedPLUS uses two distinct equalization processes: a three-band tone-shaping matrix, and a specially designed high pass (HP) filter.

For a change to win one of these plug-ins, simply leave a comment below and tell us which plug-in you would like to win.

The deadline for entering the giveaway is October 31st, 2014, 12.00pm. The winners will be chosen randomly and notified shortly after.

Good luck!
