Novation launches Heritage Competition (+ free sample pack)

Novation has launched its Heritage Competition, a chance to win Novation’s Bass Station II, UltraNova and MiniNova.

We’re celebrating our heritage with a short film that explores Novation past, present, and future, along with a completely free sample pack comprising over 800MB of loops, single hits, multi sampled patches, and drum kits from its unforgettable and modern classic synths.

In addition, three people will win their choice of Bass Station II, UltraNova, or MiniNova – our award winning current lineup of synthesisers – in a make-a-track competition with an all-star judging panel including Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Sneaker Pimps), Eats Everything, and Timo Maas in a competition running from the 4th of February to the 4th of March 2014.

Novation co-founder Ian Jannoway, legendary synth designer Chris Huggett, Gus Unger-Hamilton of Alt-J, Sneaker Pimps and Lana Del Rey producer Liam Howe, and product manager Matt Derbyshire all feature in a very special short film that charts the rise of Novation from humble beginnings to a company whose musical innovations support a user base that includes – amongst many others – Orbital, M4SONIC, Rudimental, T.E.E.D, Lunice, Alt-J, Teddy Riley, and Jimmy Mac – keyboardist for international sensation Lorde.

Supernova II, K Station, Bass Station, Drum Station, Bass Station II and Ultranova are all represented in the heritage sample pack, and we are launching a month long competition with an all-star judging panel including Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Sneaker Pimps), Eats Everything, and Timo Maas to create a track using the pack – with three winners each winning their choice of either Ultranova, Mininova, or Bass Station II.

The competition ends March 4th, 2014.

Newpool Music launches Hiding Jekyll Lable Tennis Remix Contest

Hiding Jekyll Lable Tennis Remix Contest

Newpool Music has announced its Lable Tennis Remix Contest, a chance to remix a track by Hiding Jekyll and win prizes from Ohmforce, Sonic Charge, Fabfilter and XILS-Lab.

Hiding Jekyll’s open minded journey through different electronic styles along with his continuous testing of various live setups finally matured to become a real trademark sound. His aspiration to organize the material in a way that makes it possible to constantly manipulate his tracks, thus comprising both a unique studio and live performance which sometimes can’t be repeated another time, is his strife for authenticity. This is the core of Hiding Jekyll, a name which is synonymous with his activities as a producer and live unit.

With his single Lable Tennis, out in spring 2014, we want to give you the opportunity to create a remix of this minimalistic beauty. You’ll be able to win some valuable prizes from Sonic Charge, Ohm Force, Fabfilter and XILS-Lab. Just be sure to read the instructions and follow our terms and conditions. We wish you good luck and a lot of fun.

The submission phase begins January 27th, 2014 and ends February 27th, 2014 at 23:59 UTC. The decision phase begins February 28th and ends March 3rd. The winners will be announced soon after.

A picture is worth a thousand words – Contest winners

a picture is worth a thousand words

The theme of the most recent music production contest at rekkerd was to create a piece of music inspired by an image.

For this contest, the idea is to take a photograph as your “muse” for a piece of music. Kind of similar to how you would write a soundtrack for a film. Use an image of a person, object, environment, or whatever might inspire you.

A total of 36 tracks were submitted. With a great variety in style and approach, I can imagine the contestants had a hard time picking their top 6 favorites!

It was a very close finish between the top 3, each just trailing 1 point behind the other. The same for spot 4 to 6, with just a few points difference.

So, without keeping you waiting any longer, here are the winners.

  1. Russian Corvette with sundayafternoonweightlessness (61 points)

  1. 3ee with Winter Breeze (60 points)

  1. Koen Veldeman with Nightfall (59 points)

The top 3 winners will receive a prize from D16 Group, as well as a pick of the prize pool in order of placement. The remaining prizes from the pool will go to the following entries.

  1. König with Mecha Funk (39 points)
  2. Stan Dart with Underworld, Part 2 (The Lost Island) (38 points)
  3. Jon Solo with The 11th Plague, and Alex Sorenti with 1570 Miles (36 points)

Congratulations to the winners, and many thanks to all who participated!
Hope to see you again next time.

Cheers,
Ronnie

Rekkerd.org music production contest – A picture is worth a thousand words

Note: the deadline for this contest is extended to December 20th!

In the process of making music I take inspiration from many things. One thing I tend to do a lot is to take a sound or idea and let everything flow from there. Using pictures is a great stimulus to get my creative juices going.

a picture is worth a thousand words

For this contest, the idea is to take a photograph as your “muse” for a piece of music. Kind of similar to how you would write a soundtrack for a film. Use an image of a person, object, environment, or whatever might inspire you. Just make sure to keep it “G-rated” and free of copyright, your image will be part of your contest submission, posted on SoundCloud.

This time around you are free to use any kind of sound source or processing, so aside from the theme there are no limitations. For those who like to use samples, I made a small sample pack (16 loops, 24bit wav) that may serve as an inspiration. You can check the sounds at SoundCloud.

Contest sample pack Download size: 34.8 MB

I’m happy to say we have some great prizes donated by a bunch of generous developers.
